Benvenuto A Toronto!


TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2011 /CNW/ - Piquadro, the brand that has taken Europe and Asia by storm, has chosen Toronto as its first North American destination.  Well-known for its Italian elegance and intuitive approach to technology, Piquadro caters to the needs of the urban jet-set traveller. With over 100 boutiques around the world, Toronto's Yorkville store offers a wide range of Italian-designed professional leather goods including: luggage, purses, messenger bags, small leather accessories, planners, portfolios, iPad and iPod cases.

"The Piquadro brand appeals to young professionals and executives with an eye for style, quality and performance, and who demand technology-driven products that enhance their busy lives," says Marco Palmieri, President and CEO of Piquadro. "Our decision to open our first North American retail location in Toronto is indicative of the type of customer that we design for: jet set, always on the go and expecting nothing less than excellence in the products they buy."

With a strong economy and a proximity to key US cities, Toronto is one of the largest hubs of business travel in North America. Piquadro's emphasis on detail for the technology-savvy traveller has resulted in products recognized for their design, functionality and durability.

The company's 25 year heritage has led to the perfection of unique leather goods inspired by three core concepts: design, comfort /technology and Italian style.

The Toronto boutique has a distinctly European feel that mirrors the other Piquadro locations around the world. The store's aesthetic was developed by Italian architect Karim Azzabi, who also designed the company's futuristic-inspired headquarter near Bologna, Italy. Piquadro continues to open stores all over the world, having launched its eighth Hong Kong location earlier this summer and plans are underway to expand to more locations in Canada.
