Its design concept successfully blends Benetton’s innovation-driven identity, which looks to the future with optimism, with the historical vibe of the British capital.

A perfect day dressed in Scapa

A beautiful day in the fall, the sun is shining and the trees are changing colors, a perfect day to take a walk through the forest looking for pine cones and chestnuts and drinking hot chocolate in front of the fireplace. We can´t wait for the winter to come dressed in Scapa.

Elisa bag

This special bag from Fratelli Rossetti is now available in their Paris and Milan boutiques. Craftsmanship, design and research in an exclusive accessory, which embodies all the values of the brand. An authentic expression of the identity of Fratelli Rossetti, Elisa carries the welt signature, a discreet sign and at the same time a deliberate reference to the footwear world.

In addition to the single colour variants presented in the collection by Fratelli Rossetti, Elisa is also available in a “made to order” version: like a white space, it can be personalised according to one’s style, combining materials and colours, creating a unique and exclusive bag. It is even possible to “sign” the interior of the bag by printing one’s name.

Visit the Fratelli Rossetti website to find out the stores' addresses.
