A cocktail party heralded the arrival of BRIC’S MILANO to Bangkok on February 16th 2016, when management of the high end travel ware brand welcomed invited guests to inspect the establishment.
Mr. Marco Molteni, Retail Manager of BRIC’S MILANO, said that BRIC’S MILANO provides top class Italian travel ware perfectly crafted for your journey. Founded in Italy in 1952 by Mr. Mario Briccola, the business began by manufacturing bags for leading global brands such as Lancel, Gucci, Burberry and Mercedes. Being trusted by such remarkable brands, coupled with Mr. Briccola’s confidence in his expertise, prompted him to launch his own brand BRIC’S MILANO in 1962. He used the first syllable of his last name and added the “’S” at the end for an American twist. What makes BRIC’S MILANO bags unique is the premium materials used in creating beautifully designed bags that are both stylish and functional. The bags in each collection have been designed to have an overall harmony, so users can easily mix and match across all collections. The range includes trolley bags, hand-carry bags, business briefcases, notebook cases, and other fashion and lifestyle items for everyday use.

They now travel more, both domestically and internationally. There is thus an increased demand for travel bags and other travel accessories, especially among high-end travellers who want travel bags that fit their lifestyle needs and reflect their taste and identity. We had an idea to introduce BRIC’S MILANO to the Thai consumers in this first and only flagship store in Thailand on the second floor of Gaysorn Shopping Centre, which is the sanctuary of taste, located right at the heart of Ratchaprasong Intersection. The décor of this flagship store highlights simple sophistication inspired by European train travel in the past. The design symbolizes crisscrossing train tracks.

To lend a modern touch, BELLAGIO METALLO is offered in two high shine metallic colours that give a stronger look thanks to the aluminium frame: Silver and Dark Brown, to make you stand out in any destination. Every bag is meticulously produced by BRIC’S MILANO experts following the brand’s high standard, which reflect Italy’s leather-crafted culture.
