Where? Born in Portugal but made in Italy

What? Sunglasses, watches

Why we love them? Don't let the "Mr" put you off. The brand started life as a menswear accessories label but has since developed a unisex and womenswear collection. Born in Portugal but made in Italy, the brand takes pride in using high-quality materials that are at an accessible price point. Established in 2013, the brand is still finding their feet but have created a striking identity with avant-garde-but-cosmopolitan lens shapes and designs. We can imagine wearing ours with a cool, flowing summer Rixo dress and an oversized sun hat. This is a brand for non-conformists. Discover the brand here.

The label: Fedon 1919

What? High-quality leather bags

Where? The Dolomites, Italy

Why we love them? Fedon is a rich-in-heritage, family-owned company whose roots are firmly stationed deep in the heart of the northern Italian mountains. The brand produces clean, sophisticated and grown-up styles made with strong, durable and soft leather. Though originally a menswear label, the change in the economy meant the brand needed to change too in order to survive the fury of the fashion industry. According to the brand, the Fedon woman is cultured and considers every aspect of her ensemble.
