Ainsley New York – Luxury bags
Ainsley New York is an independent leather goods brand founded in 2019 by up-and-coming Brooklyn-based New York designer Anna Lee. The US brand launched its first collection of luxury bags in 2021 under the Made in Italy banner and is distributed both online and in selected NY boutiques. Ainsley New York took its first steps in the industry through Leather&Luxury, a Florence-based publishing and advertising player that has been reporting on the Italian leather manufacturing sector for ten years. L&L put Anna Lee in touch with its network of companies in the major Italian manufacturing districts, identifying a select pool of tanneries, manufacturers, and accessory producers in Northern Italy and Tuscany. Ainsley New York therefore relies on the high quality, value, and creative vision of Made in Italy excellence for its end-to-end production. The luxury bag collection is characterised by timeless elegance combined with a typical metropolitan urban lifestyle where form and function coexist in a subtle balance. Her sources of inspiration are the 1980s fashion scene of the Big Apple and the Bauhaus approach to art and architecture according to the famous motto “breathe life into the product”. Anna Lee also embraces the aesthetic minimalism of “Less is more”, which favours quality over quantity, but also denotes a lifestyle that has a lower impact on the environment.
