-The Petale was first created for the Fall/Winter 2008 collection, under Alessandra Facchinetti's tenure. Since then it has become one of the brand's most recognizable bags ever, reaching instant iconic status.

-Facchinetti didn't show bags at the Fall/Winter 2008 presentation, so the first and only time a Petale was included in a runway show was for the Fall/Winter 2009 presentation (Chiuri and Piccioli's first show)

-Every Petale is made with various square feet of leather. The flower is made from start-to-finish by hand and requires fine craftmanship.

-The Petale has been made in various shapes: From the classic tote version, the dome bag, the frame bag, to clutches. There is also another bag called Shiny Nappa Rose which is considered a completely different bag even when is just a re-interpretation of the Petale.


Here is a picture from the Fall/Winter 2008 ad campaign:
