Hot Italian Handbags

Have we got a bag for you! Two amazing handbags from two great Italian designers are shown below. The first is a classic look from Bottega Veneta created utilizing the woven leather technique called Intrecciato, which Bottega made famous. The bag is wine color and is shaped like a large coin purse, with two tassels hanging down in the front. The bag features a medium length shoulder strap done in the same leather as the rest of the bag. Additionally, there is one interior pocket that houses a mirror, still wrapped in the original tissue it came in. The second bag is by Gino Tromba. This black clutch is made of glazed black alligator skin. There are three interior pouches in the bag, one with a zipper. The closure on the bag is a gold bow with crystal accents and a clasp. Inside the bag there is a removable medium length gold chain shoulder strap. This spacious black clutch is perfect for a black tie gala that requires a lot of storage room. Forget an ID and lipstick, this bag can hold your teacup poodle!
