Spearheaded by Radhika Piramal, Managing Director, VIP Industries Ltd. Caprese will be rolled out post extensive test marketing, across India. Explaining the idea behind getting into handbags, Piramal said, “The branded handbag industry in India is at a very nascent stage, and there is clear absence of a big brand with pan-India presence.
