Wanny Style

A long and immaculate beard. Good-natured and generous eyes. White hair is gathered in a ponytail under his ever-present straw or felt hat. A colorful (or tiny bison-print) scarf is over his shoulders and / or a bandanna is knotted at his neck. Across his nose, rests a pair of eyeglasses and over them a pair of sunglasses. Between lens and frame (also multicolored) dangles a charming mini bison.

Wanny Di Filippo

He is highly sought after by photographers at fashion kermises, revered as an icon by Florentines and idolized in Japan as a star. The unmistakable style of Wanny Di Filippo, Il Bisonte’s founder and ambassador, is a hymn to joy and a tribute to the freedom of being unique.

Wanny Bio

Wanny Di Filippo was born in 1945 in Adria, in northen Italy. He came into the world on February 14th, but the bombardments of World War II prevented his grandmother from going to the town hall to register his birth. A farmer friend ended up going a few days later but gave the wrong date which is why the official registers have it down as the 16th.

Caramella

Designed by Wanny Di Filippo in 1973 to embody his desire to blend aesthetic simplicity, lightness, functional flexibility and space-saving intelligence, Caramella is the first of Il Bisonte’s convertible bags.
