Original, high-quality, and functional designer luggage is the mainstay of the Italian fashion label "Mandarina Duck". Other items such as perfumes, watches, and sunglasses that make traveling a little more stylish are also featured in the creative brand's portfolio.
Paolo Trento and Pietro Mannato founded "Mandarina Duck" in 1977 in Bologna, Italy. The brand was named after a species of duck native to East Asia and boasted innovative designs, unusual materials, and contemporary functions that provide travelers with the right "tools".
The label developed well, and, after 20 years, "Mandarina Duck" was already operating in almost 70 stores worldwide. From the mid-1990s, the label expanded its collaboration with other companies. A luggage set was created in the design of the "Mini Cooper" in 2004, and in 2007 a similar edition for the "Nissan Micra". This was followed by "Moon" in 2009, a cell phone created in cooperation with "Alcatel."
Despite these efforts, "Mandarina Duck" faced many challenges, and was taken over by the South Korean "E-Land-Group" in 2011. Thanks to many innovations such as a handbag made from recycled plastic bottles (2017), the company bounced back.
The travel and luggage collection of "Mandarina Duck" includes shoulder, hand, and shoulder bags, briefcases, office bags, as well as shoppers and mommy bags. The company also offers trolleys in various sizes and designs. Accessories include fanny packs, purses, and beauty cases.
The label's bags and cases are sold in upscale stores, shopping malls, and cosmetics and beauty portals. The brand's homepage offers the largest selection and is also the best place to go for all accessories.
