Handcrafted under the shadows of the Acropolis of Athens, the new handbag brand is designed by Greek-American global hotel expert Andria Mitsakos who launched the line to raise the profile of Greece’s old world artisans, creating jobs, investment and innovation.
Combining centuries-old techniques with modern trends, Wanderlista is defined by a sense of voyage, and inspired by Andria’s lifetime of traveling. Her passion for textiles, shape and substance are reflected in each design, which is punctuated by functional styles, a resort-ready color palette and bespoke hardware she designs and produces.
Envisioned to become a timeless staple of fine craftsmanship and design, Wanderlista brings together a strong heritage, form, and architectural edge, imbued with a desire to wander our world.
Wanderlista has found a soul partnership with Maris Collective, a global lifestyle and luxury fashion destination retailer, with more than 25 boutiques in 12 luxury hotels and resorts around the world. Renowned for transforming the hospitality retail experience by designing, developing and operating highly customized retail environments in five-star hotels and resorts internationally, Maris Collective's stores offer relevant, meaningful and exclusive selections for the most discerning traveler. The brand's luxurious retail environments are designed specifically for each destination featuring thoughtfully curated and exclusive selections of fashion, accessories, sport and vacation essentials, as well as locally sourced homewares. Under the leadership of Founder & CEO LeeAnn Sauter, Maris Collective has built a diverse team of talented and experienced retail experts who bring the brand's vision to life through personalized customer service and exceptional product offerings, such as Wanderlista, in beautifully designed surroundings.
