ZILLA

 

Zilla

LABEL: Zilla
DESIGNER: Sylvia Pichler
LOCATION: Bolzano, Italy
CATEGORY: Accessories

As a trained architect-turned-designer, Italian-born Sylvia Pichler conceives her range of handbags as moving structures or “mobile homes,” as she calls them. Further inspired by the trade, she infuses building ideas and technical know-how with a deep curiosity for fashion, launching Zilla in 2005.

Her iterations of the everyday handbag display a visionary approach, working new ways to use industrial materials, borrowing heavily from the unexpected, such as technology and the building trade. The finely crafted handbags seamlessly combine high style with an undeniable Italian flair that’s worthy of more than just a second look.
