Originally from Italy, Marino Orlandi spread to China in 2000, offering a variety of leather bags, purses, wallets, and straps aimed at customers 18 to 40. While the products are designed in Italy, they are produced in GuangDong.
I visited its branch on West Cherry Blossom St by the East North 3rd Ring Rd. Customers say they enjoy their European design, along with very affordable prices.
The store's left side displays the purses, wallet and straps, while the right side features satchels. You'll find that the main hues used are purple, red, and yellow for satchels and purses, and black and brown for wallets. The shop assistant recommended to me a large yellow satchel made from cow leather, for RMB 338. The satchel felt very sturdy and sewn on with very good skill. Definitely a good winter bag.
Prices for purses and wallets in general range from RMB 30 to RMB 200. Satchels will cost you RMB 300 to RMB 600. The shop assistants speak English, so feel free to ask them for help.
