Ghisò for Aston Martin Chess

Ghiso’ and Aston Martin are partnering on a challenging project that ties up contemporary design with Italian craftsmanship.

 

This five years licensing deal is presented with a party at Pitti Uomo and includes not only a collection of bags, but also gift and games.

All the bags are handmade, specially quilted, and use ultra-thin leathers to obtain a light weight even when over-dimensioned. On each item, an exclusive zipped pocket. But the interesting side of this partnership is in the gift and game sets catalog: backgammon, go, chess, domino, along with smoking sets, cigar boxes, are all designed by the Italian Marco Borraccino and manufactured in Tuscany, at Ghiso’ atelier, in limited edition.  The range will be sold this fall through a network of selected retailers and department stores, in the Aston Martin stores, and in the Ghiso’ flagship stores in Geneva and Los Angeles, opening soon.
