Antonini was born in the picturesque village of Lazzereto, outside Florence, almost 40 years ago. Today, a second generation of Antoninis have joined the family business to produce their signature leather accessories that are painstakingly turned, with skill, by hand, and which feature few, if any, linings. Although it’s hard to decide which is more compelling, the vivid colours or the buttery softness of the French nappa calf leather, the Italian heritage of each Antonini piece is unmistakeable, and Hunt stocks a complete range of products that are custom made for us, and which includes the now famous 1018 spectacle case on a string that was first modified specially for our founder Elizabeth Hunt.
