In celebration of the timeless Galleria handbag, award-winning actress Scarlett Johansson fronts the vibrant campaign conceptualised by Venezuelan-American artist Alex Da Corte. Named ‘The Glass Age’, the campaign incorporates colour-blocking visuals that redefine the Hollywood starlet into an expressive palette, poses and attitude, which mirrors the same notion of humanity Johansson brings to her work. 

Similarly, the star of the show—the Galleria bag—has been transformed and reimagined through its structural shape, double-top handles, and distinct colourways that elevate Italian craftsmanship to new heights. There are eight limited-edition designs to choose from, each embellished with bright geometric patterns imprinted on the Saffiano leather.
