Ally Capellino

    Ally Capellino started her company in 1980. Described by The Independent as the "anti It-bag of the modern era" she has become known for her smart twist on minimalist luxury. Born in Surrey, she spent her childhood years in Dublin and Yorkshire before studying fashion at Middlesex University. A moment in Capellino’s presence and it becomes clear that her designs are rooted in her own tastes and personality: her love of cycling to and from her studio inspires new rucksacks and messenger bags. Fans of her line applaud its craftsmanship and attention to detail. Rather than play it safe by following the trends, Capellino’s designs evolve each season, adding new hardware, new shapes or interpreting them in new textiles. The locations of her two boutiques, one on the periphery of Shoreditch and the other tucked away at the quiet end of Portobello Road, compliment the just-under-the-radar appeal of Ally Capellino; a line worth discovering and a secret worth keeping.Show lessRead more
