Story
Italian-rooted, luxury brands Alighieri and TL 180 have collaborated to create a six piece capsule collection of the Fazzoletto: multi-purpose bags, designed to act as your best friend and companion for all your adventures. Hand-crafted leather amphoras hang from golden chains adorned with Alighieri’s signature talismans, each telling a story, rooted in Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Both brands are committed to local craftsmanship, and have combined the incomparable quality of Italian leather goods, with Hatton-Garden’s traditional lost wax casting processes to create this timeless capsule.


My guide and I came on that hidden road to make our
way back into the bright world; and with no care for any
rest, we climbed—

he first, I following—until I saw,
through a round opening, some of those things of beauty
Heaven bears. It was from there

that we emerged, to see - once more - the stars.

- Inferno Canto XXXIV, The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri


The scraggy depiction of the Usurers money pockets, and molten landscapes in Canto XVII, is juxtaposed with bright stars and world Dante sets his eyes on, as he enters Purgatory. This dark beauty inspires the tough femininity aesthetic of the TL 180 x Alighieri capsule collection.

The hand sculpted leather vessels have a scrunch closure detail, creating texture and character, personal to each Fazzoletto. The draped silhouette is signature to TL 180’s elegant style, which is offset with Alighieri’s imperfect golden castings draping from layers of hardware chains. This marriage creates a romantic tragedy, and perfect twinkling companion for evenings in and out.
