Biography

In less than two years, Maria Sole Cecchi’s accessories label Les Petits Joueurs has gained a level of street-style stardom to rival the designer herself.

Born in Florence in 1987, Cecchi relocated to Paris at 20. Her accessory ambitions began when she customized a handbag with Lego bricks spelling out “LOVE”, sparking a slew of personal orders from family and friends.

After a stint in Sao Paulo, Cecchi returned to Florence in 2014, where she teamed up with her brother and business partner, Andrea Cecchi, to launch Les Petits Joueurs’ first seasonal collection of brightly-coloured bags.

Cecchi’s made-in-Italy accessories scored her first place in the Vogue Talents competition for emerging designers. Today, the business has stockists in 145 countries and works directly with Lego manufacturers on specially commissioned pieces. In September 2016, the first Les Petits Joueurs boutique opened on Via de’ Tornabuoni, Florence’s luxury shopping street.
