Sylvia Pichler - "My bag is my castle"

Sylvia Pichler, a young Italian architect, prefers designing handbags over skyscrapers. Drawing on industrial materials typically reserved for insulation, interior decoration or even air filtering, Pichler creates curiously elegant bags under the moniker Zilla. The bags are made in Italy and  sold in selected shops around the world.
 "Bags are conceived as moving structures and mobile homes for women"

 The Zilla Spring/Summer 2011 collection consists of simple yet extremely feminine bags in a variety of styles. Special filters, natural cork, aluminum foils, bast fiber, rubber and synthetic sponge combine with fine leather and linings for a collection that spans both day and night looks.
