Busy Bees

Slow-fashion leather label BennyBee, co-owned and run by Fashion Brand Management Masters student Mariana Leite, earned its first Pitti spotlight this year, garnering applause for its refusal to compromise on quality, sustainability or ethics in the production of its hand-stitched goods. Made with love in Slovakia and topped with a coat of royal honey, the family business has been making its sweet packs since 2014, earning features in Vogue Italia, Forbes and now among The Rake’s must-have sacks of the season.
