Product Guide


  • Handbags
  • Luggage


This small Florentine company specializes in vacchetta leather—vegetable-tanned hides that get richer, softer, and more supple with age. The Soho outpost carries bags, briefcases and luggage in simple, classic designs and colors, at prices higher than Coach but a solid notch below Hermes, with an emphasis on understated, timeless designs in gorgeous, deeply hued leather. Items run the gamut from red snap wallets ($188) to large cognac-colored briefcases ($1,200). The shop predictably excels in women's handbags, clutches, and totes, but the men's carry-alls are popular, too; there's a good selection of stylish, masculine zip-top camera cases and messenger bags. Everything is stamped with Il Bisonte’s tiny signature bison logo.
