Founded in 1936, Bruno Magli was established by three siblings, Marino, Mario and Bruno Magli. The brand started as a womens footwear label, with the art of shoemaking taught to them by their grandfather. Beginning as a small business working out of a basement in Bologna, Italy, the brand soon gained recognition for their craftsmanship and elegance. Expansion worldwide saw Bruno Magli stores open throughout Europe, China, Australia and America in the 1980’s. By this time, the Italian label had become a leader in high-end footwear, and has since grown to encompass footwear for men and women, as well as bags, accessories and watches. Since 2015, Bruno Magli has been owned by Marquee Brands, with Max Kibardin as Creative Director.
Handcrafted and created with a commitment to Italian design tradition, Bruno Magli is luxurious and elegant. Only the finest nappa leather and the highest quality materials are used, to provide ultimate comfort to each and every shoe. Comfort does not mean a compromise on style, as Bruno Magli collections are classic and polished. Timeless pieces such as suede loafers in rich earth tones and smart, leather oxfords exemplify classic Italian craftsmanship. The brand offers modern and wearable day-to-day styles in lace up sneakers and fashionable sliders. Their womens footwear collections provide the same refined elegance, with stunning heels and embellished sandals which provide a feminine and opulent appearance.
Bruno Magli’s expansion has seen the introduction of bags for every occasion. Working with neutral tones as well as beautiful brights, there is something for each look. Watches are simple and sophisticated, adding an element of luxury to an outfit. Whether looking for a pair of expertly crafted shoes to last a lifetime or essential accessories such as a wallet or belt, Bruno Magli pieces are tasteful, classic and highly respected.
