Andrea Bucci is one of the youngest new brands but also one of the more exciting names in the world of hosiery. Although they were founded by the Brandwell group, which itself launched over 30 years ago, Andrea Bucci is a new name in their family and ours too. Founded most recently of all their names, Andrea Bucci is designed by the same team that has brought you the other amazing items from Brandwell, such as Freelander, Moon and Marie Claire. They have expertise in making so many different items of clothing, from lingerie and hosiery, to sunglasses, umbrellas, backpacks and bags. This means that there's an ocean of expertise behind the Andrea Bucci collection.
Their great design team is made up of veterans of the clothing world. They come from so many different backgrounds with different types of clothing and fashion designers working in the same locale and bouncing ideas off each other. Based in both London and Dublin, this group of designers takes some of the best talent from the UK and Ireland and puts them together in a team that results in some of the best hosiery of the Anglosphere. As we all know, the UK is the home of high quality fashion, being the birthplace of Burberry, Gieves and Hawkes and Ted Baker. The heritage of Savile Row has rubbed off on all British brands and they each try to live up to their history in any way they can. Although Andrea Bucci does not position itself as a luxury brand, it really isn't too different, and their items of leg wear come from this same long history are all about bringing the best quality possible to people, no matter the price tag. In a few short years,
Andrea Bucci has lived up to its nation's history and is making items that are beyond the quality you'd expect for such a reasonable price tag. They are all magnificently well made and a joy to wear, competing with the likes of Pretty Polly and Charnos. These names are probably ones you recognise, being household names of the leg wear world. Their hosiery is found all over the world, in every department store, online retailer and boutique. They make great items, and they are incredibly respected in the industry, but Andrea Bucci have set themselves the task of making hosiery that are even better quality and even better value. They are not at all far from doing this, and whilst many designers out there would say it’s almost impossible to deliver good quality and affordability together as the veteran designers do, unless you have the same decades of experience. But Andrea Bucci decided with hard work and a clever approach to design is all you really need. In the present day, you'll find Andrea Bucci in only a handful of stores and some of the better online retailers, of course. But they are growing and expanding, so pretty soon, they will be as well known and as popular as so many of their contemporaries, with the same passion and innovation they have right now.
