Don’t Miss The Sale at Bellezza Import’s Italian Leather Handbag Boutique.

Bellezza Imports is offering a few of our fine Italian leather bags at great prices. We have reviewed our inventory and reduced bags that are low in quantity.  We are happy to offer these exceptional bags at a moderate price as a thank you to all our loyal customers. For example the Lady Jovani which I personally carry is a gorgeous hobo in soft savage calfskin leather from a leading Italian Designer, Varriale.   Another great buy is the Lady Cosma a very classic style from Giudi’s concept Collection. Also now reduced for final sale is the lady Stefana from Barbara Milano (see Below). We should remind everyone that these bags are often singles so don’t hesitate to purchase your bag now.  As always special priced bags are NOT returnable.

We Just Returned From The Italian Leather Bag Designer Show in Milan.

October 1st, 2012

Rebecca of Bellezza’s Italian leather Handbag Boutique says lots of color will be big for Spring 2013

We are back from the spring/summer buying show held in Milano. September is a glorious month to visit Italy, cooler weather and fewer crowds.  As always the show was lots of fun and so energizing to see the new colors and styles.  The companies we buy from are small family run businesses so it’s like a reunion every year!  I love visiting with them!  They are so welcoming and gracious,  offering water, espresso, colas, wine, & assorted treats.  This year we are bringing back the line Avorio and have signed a new collection called Ripani.

After the show in the evening we shop & dine around the Piazza Duomo where the famous Galleria Vittorio is located.  The shops stay open until 11:00 pm!  While walking back to our boutique hotel there’s  always a stop for gelato.  My favorite this year was rum raisin.

After a side trip to Venice and the Murano Glass Factory we traveled to Florence to visit our designer, Simone of Florence.  He does not show at Mipel so we visit his showroom at his father’s factory.   It’s always good to come home but I miss so much of the Italian way of life, their food, wine and am already dreaming of the visit in March.  Ciao Italy!

Bellezza Italian Leather Opens Flagship Store at Mayo Clinic

August 20th, 2012

Bellezza Imports is Pleased to Announce the Opening of Their New Store: Poppi Italian Leather.

Bellezza Italian leather has opened its first Flagship store in the Kahler Grand Hotel, across from the world famous medical center, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  We have been overwhelmed with the response and success of our first physical location.  We have chosen the name POPPI Italian Leather for the store.  Our choice not to call it Bellezza stems from the difficulty in the pronunciation and also for the connection to Italy with the Poppi flower and the region in Tuscany where the majority of our leather comes from. We will continue to bring beautiful Italian leather…. NOT mass produced and no chemical tanning to our worldwide customers. Check out our new arrivals on FB, POPPI Italian leather.POPPI Italian Leather

Bellezza Imports at the Mipel Leather Show in Milan, Italy

March 23rd, 2012

Rebecca, director of Bellezza Imports with the Gianni Conti sales staff at the Mipel leather show.

Rebecca Calhoun Director of BI at the Mipel leather Show in Milan, Italy placing an order with Gianni Conti.  Rebecca says ” we attend by invitation the best leather show in Italy”.  You can be assured our leather is MADE IN ITALY only and the highest quality with the lowest prices.  We don’t buy from second or third party we go directly to the companies who take time, money & effort to showcase their collections to us.  We love the companies we have partnered with.  Its very difficult to get a invitation to the show, you must be vetted as a legitimate business.  They don’t want people coming in to copy their designs before they reach the market.  Sign up for our news letter now to receive notices of discounts.
