“The woman who carries an ippolito bag is passionate and witty.
She shows a certain affection for modernity, but at the same time appreciates the beauty of infinity.
Ippolito women are joyous and sparkling.”
Ippolito luxury leather goods are all about high quality, timeless shapes but most of all they are about attention to detail. For this reason, all ippolito accessories are exclusively hand crafted at the center of Athens with fine Italian leather.
Ippolito is also working for a cause. Ippolito Loves Geppetto is a pet collar line inspired by Pavlina's dog Geppetto and they are made out of the same fine leather used for the bags. Their purpose is to fund treatments of stray dogs against the disease of Kalazaar.
The creator behind the brand Ippolito is Pavlina Papailiopoulou, a graduate of Istituto Marangoni and the University of Reading, who traveled from London to Milan to NYC, working at the RTW creative team of Bottega Veneta under Tomas Maier,
until the day she returned to Athens, where she first imagined the essence of her personal collection. Ippolito was born in October 2009 as the culmination of a series of experiences and inspirations.
