Maison Bag was founded in 2010, a small company run by Giovanna and
Veronica,and even today, two years after birth we take care of everything from
design to research, from the choice of fabrics and hardware,to the
quality control,we manage from administrative to creative management each of us
with its role,Giovanna the creative and Veronica the commercial combining
always the same taste,style and mutual help.
This is how the brand IpMr.Famous was born, name created for Giovanna’s
love for animals but especially a tribute to Audrey Hepburn, icon of elegance
and style and to her adorable pets, a fawn Pippin, called Ip and
Mr.Famous, her inseparable Yorkshire Terrier.
The love for animals explains why we said no to animal skin,we created a
beautiful and exclusive collection of handbags using only precious Italian
textiles. The idea is to create stylish and fun bags that can accompany a woman
from morning to night, without the use of animal skin.
The entire collection of handbags, for now just for women,are made only in
precious and innovative fabrics following a line and a style that belongs to
us, perhaps too simple in this fast-paced world and always looking to impress,
where does it say that elegance and style do not impress?
The bags IpMr.Famous are made with a selection of fabrics from fashion or
decorating sources that work well with our ideas and our designs.Our first
collection was born and presented for the first time at Première Classe in
Our progect is based on the creation of models entirely made in Italy,from
the hardware,the fabrics,the embroideries to the production. The artisans who
collabrate with us have been on the market for years boasting research,
originality and precision in their field.
Giovanna and I come from different working backgrounds but we have focused
our tastes and our passion in the same direction,elegance and style but at the
same time we wanted to give a witty touch, customizing the bags with
embroideries, which gave the opportunity to our clients to customize
A decision that has perhaps complicated our working life, but to sit on the
carpet of a stand with your client that browses through the fabric
samples, choosing colors that he likes the most and give him the possibility
to personalize the bags with embroidery or not, makes us feel
a little 'part of their world, and maybe it made them feel unique, in fact we
now have several clients who have the same model of bags but yet
completely different one from the other.
Ip Mr.Famous stands for creativity, resourcefulness and the ability to take
risks. And if one side there is a clear return to simplicity, on the other
there is a strong ironic message.
Giovanna and Veronica would like to present their collection with a
shopping list, perhaps “to keep in your purse,” highlighting only a few key
words of their project: Made in Italy, Design, Quality and Precious
