In this series, we unpick what makes a wardrobe hero perfect, and highlight our favourite styles of the season.
When in Rome. Well, Milan actually – and we’re celebrating Italy’s glittering fashion week with an exploration into what makes the perfect Italian handbag. The neo-classical streets of the city will play host to some of the world’s most stylish show-goers over the weekend, each one clutching a handbag guaranteed to turn heads. Famed for their craftsmanship, decadent design and beautiful finishes, Italian handbags are undoubtedly among the world’s finest. Whilst the hunt for anything perfect can be long, the results are worth it, and we’d always recommend taking time to choose any new wardrobe additions (unless you’re feeling particularly indulgent, in which case, don’t think, just do.) Although perfection is ultimately subjective, we believe there are a few key elements that a bag must have in order to be in the running for the title of perfection. Namely; expert craftsmanship, beautiful materials and chic design – the kind that endures. Here, we chart what makes the perfect Italian handbag, regardless of taste.
