La Débraillée is an Italian brand of leather goods, from a vision of Alice Rosignoli.

Alice, a graduate in Industrial Design, creates handbags, in which shape and aesthetics merge harmoniously in a perfectly balanced design.

Elegant and essential, yet always extremely practical and versatile, these handbags mould and adapt to every situation presented by the fast changing hustle of city life.

La Débraillée is used in french to call a person slack in their appearance. The brand’s name was chosen to highlight the importance of functionality and cosiness.

.
“I CREATE TO SUPPORT PEOPLE IN THEIR EVERYDAY LIFE. I LIKE TO THINK ABOUT THE WEARER THAT NONCHALANTLY PUSHES THE POUCH FURTHER UP THEIR ARM WHILST WALKING THE DOG OR BUYING A METRO TICKET.”
.

La Débraillée presents a permanent collection that is amplified each year with a selective number of styles.

The essence of design delivers gender-neutral bags that relate strongly to the individuality of the people who wear them.

An expression of resistance to conform to passing trends, believing a good design will stand the test of time and not last for just one season.

.
“I REALISE THIS PROJECT TO FREELY EXPRESS MY CREATIVITY, ADOPTING AN ETHICAL PRODUCTION PROCESS, UNCONDITIONED BY MARKET PRESSURE.”

A distinctive feature is choosing to upcycle surplus leather for the colour palette.

As the quantity of the surplus is always limited only a few pieces of each model can be made in each colour. For this reason the colours are limited editions or unique, while black is always available.

.
“COLOURS REQUIRE MINIMUM ORDERS TO SPECIFICALLY DYE AND TAN THE HIDES, i.e. POLLUTION AND OVER-PRODUCTION. I PERSONALLY FIND THIS WAY OF PRODUCING OUT OF STEP WITH THE TIMES, THAT’S WHY I DECIDED TO USE SURPLUS LEATHER FROM OTHER BRANDS PRODUCTION FOR THE COLOUR PALETTE.”
.

The brand’s creations are made by artisans entirely by hand, in a small atelier located in Le Marche, Italy.

All the materials and accessories that are used in manufacture of the bags are handpicked in this region.

Thanks to the meticulous care given to selecting it’s raw materials and collaborators, La Débraillée is confident of the quality of its products, their strength and durability.

.
“I AM VERY PROUD TO PRODUCE LOCALLY.  LE MARCHE REGION IS HOME TO THE BEST ITALIAN SHOES AND HANDBAGS. THE WORKERS HAVE A SENSE OF DUTY AND DEDICATION.”
