Situated on leafy Calvert Avenue in London's East End is Ally Capellino, a luggage emporium offering a quintessentially British take on functional design. First launched as a fashion label in 1980, the brand was overhauled in 1999 and saw a significant change in direction alongside a renewed focus on accessories. Over a decade later, Ally Capellino opened their first East End branch in 2005 and has become the go-to manufacturer for men and women looking for well-designed satchels, totes, rucksacks, belts and more.

For more than 30 years, the label has gained worldwide recognition as a timeless brand committed to quality design and discreet detailing. The woman behind it all, textile and fashion graduate Alison Lloyd, has a loyal customer base that spans across the globe and with a strong focus on craftsmanship and premium materials, Ally Capellino champions British manufacturing by using only the finest fabrics, including waxed cotton and Italian vegetable tanned leather, to create their unique and quirky designs.

Ally Capellino opened a second store in 2011 on Portobello Road and boasts an extensive list of international stockists. The label has collaborated with large brands such as Apple, Tate, Norse Projects and most recently, Shoreditch's Ace Hotel. Their growing presence has helped them to achieve global acclaim and a cult-like, ever-expanding following.
