I am totally feeling the Italian vibes as I am visiting this country twice this month! Lucky me! Last weekend I went to Pescara, to encourage the athletes who participated in the Iron man, specifically my sister, brother and her friends. And next week my boyfriend and I are flying to Pisa and driving our white Fiat 500 to his parents in Toscane. I have not even unpacked my suitcase, but you can understand that I am looking forward to the second trip that will be, once again, to enjoy ice cream, wine, pasta, sun and especially Italian Fashion. It’s everywhere, Italian gentlemen who actually look like Richard Gere in American Gigolo and Italian fashionistas who may have been inspired by the celebrated fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni. Italy is famous and renowned for its fashion and some Italian Luxury brands are iconic to the world of fashion. And since I talk about Bags and fashion as if they were the same, I want to show you the icons of the Italy mode. Those Bags are widely recognized, well established and especially recognized for their distinctive excellence. This article presents an overview of the iconic Bags from my favorite Italian fashion Luxury brands. What Bag or what brand is your favorite?
The colorful and recognizable ‘Miss Sicily’ Bag byDolce & Gabbanais one of the mostItalian brands iconicdesigns New prints are created every season and there are mini, midi and maxi variations. And if you want to be truly exclusive, you should opt for the limited edition ‘Mix’ Sicily. What do you think of the “Sicilia openwork mix of polka dot lace“?
TheBaguette FENDIIt’s not just a Bag, it’s the bag! Everyone remembers how and when Carrie Bradshaw got hers stolen. Sex and the City gave the FENDI Baguette “it-bag” status after SiLvia Venturini FENDI designed this bag in 1997 to carry under her arm like French bread. Since then, this baguette has been made in more than 1,000 styles.Fendieven createdmicro baguetteswith recognizable bugs (the famous monster foxbagcharm) inspired eyes (see image above).
Bamboo is Gucci‘s hallmark, its signature and is used in most of Gucci‘s daily Bags, backpacks and Handbags. Guccio Gucci opened a Leather goods company and small luggage store in his native Florence in 1921. The brand soon became famous for its unique combination of bold innovation and legendary Italian quality and craftsmanship. In the 1940s, when faced with a shortage of foreign supplies, one of their craftsmen created the Handle for the NewBamboo bag, the first of many iconic Gucci products and still a huge favorite today.
TheTatianaofPaula CademartoriIt is sought after by all women who have a weakness for colourful, exclusive and Handmade products. Paula is of Italian-Brazilian origin and is something of a New kid on the block, having debuted an epic SpRing-Summer 2011 collection. Like the iconic Tatiana bag, all bags are sealed with an autographed metal Buckle. .
Valentino cannot be missing from this list. Valentino Garavani opened his first atelier in Rome back in 1960, in the era of ‘La Dolce Vita’. Today, this Luxury brand is still known for its elegance and femininity and flowers, bows and lace are its emblematic motifs. However, with his wildly popular Rockstud collection, Valentino added a hard-luxe attitude. The Valentino Rockstud Reversible Medium Double Tote is elegant, timeless and elegant. turns anyone into a fashionable rock star.
MoschinoHe is also highly sought after for his innovative and colorful, sometimes eccentric designs. Franco Moschino created pieces that reflected the luxurious feminine sensuality of Italian culture and has been bRinging sassy, artful fashion to the Milan runway since 1984. Due to the unusual designs, this brand has many recognizable items. However, I find theLeather biker shoulder bagone of Moschino’s most iconic pieces, featuRing a chain and Leather strap, Gold-tone hardware, and a fold-over top. This bag is reissued every season. I can’t wait to see the New version of Jeremy Scott, after the brilliant “Barbie” and “Ready to bear” variants.
