A Barretts embodies fashion, modernity and beauty, endowed with the highest taste and quality in making leather handbags and accessories.
A Barretts Creative director is Asdrubal Barreto-Abreu; from a very young age Asdrubal's eye for Fashion was honed when he used to accompany his mother on trips to Miami to source stock for her fashion retail business in Caracas. A career in the law beckoned Asdrubal later in life, but after a rewarding career as a lawyer he decided to move to Europe. His sensibility for beauty and Fashion was cultivated by training with British Leather craft masters in the traditional artisan hand making techniques of leather bag construction. Simultaneously, he elevated his design skills with courses in London's "Central St. Martins" and “London College of Fashion” ultimately winning a scholarship to Milan's Istituto Marangoni Milan where he completed a "Master of Accessories Design and Luxury Goods”.
In 2014 A Barretts debuts his new Spring Summer 2015 collection of handbags and clutches called "Summer Nights; the hidden side of summer" at New York Fashion Week.
