This is the vision of Pavlina Papailiopoulou, the creator behind the Ippolito accessories.
The first collection was born in October 2009, and is the culmination of a series of experiences and inspirations. Pavlina, graduate of Istituto Marangoni and the University of Reading, 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.
In December 2014 Pavlina teamed up with Greg Haji Joannides, a talented visual artist and created a men's line. Their first design, a briefcase backpack, took the name of the brand -The Ippolito- as it is the absolute Ippolito piece mirroring the bag Ippolito himself would carry. Every season now Pavlina and Greg will enhance their Mens collection with a new piece.
Ippolito accessories are all about high quality and timeless shapes. But most of all, Ippolito is about attention to detail. After all, it’s the little things that make all the difference.
Exclusively hand crafted at the centre of Athens by fine Italian leather, each ippolito bag is destined to hold tight your little, precious secrets and stories.
Ippolito is the bag of a true modern being. And that is a promise.
