Caterina Lucchi designer handbags, were designed to be a compliment to a personality that like to be a protagonist in her worlds – someone who was a mover and a shaker.

The designers use natural earthy colors, in fact there is a coupling of elements that which is a perfect mix between rugged and elegant. Easily identified with the Caterina Lucchi trademark – a super sized tassel that hangs from almost each one of the designs – or the Caterina Lucchi logo which is embroidered on the inside of the bags. In any case, these leather handbags are unmistakable! Simply look for a design that sends the message – Look at me! I was made in Italy!
What could be more attractive in washed leather than a Campomaggi bag? Only Caterina Lucchi captures the essence of the leather like Campomaggi and transforms it into a master piece with a feminine touch. These Italian leather handbags use the same material that goes into the internationally sought washed leather Campomaggi business bags, messenger bags and overnight totes. Yet the final result is distinctly for women only! Caterina Lucchi, started business in 1986. It was obvious that the masterminds behind Campomaggi had decided that it was time to created a second personality. As appealing as their rugged appearance was, the designing fashion world wanted something different grace a female form. Caterina Lucchi designer Italian leather handbags were the answer, finally a bag that the ladies could call all their own.
Catterina Lucchi washed leather designer handbags and tote bags are designed to utilize the much appreciated look of a leather that has a vintage appeal. The assembly of these Italian leather handbags is essentially the sames as the procedure used for their masculine counterpart.

The Caterina Lucchi desiger bags are frequently appearing in new shades and variations of a theme. The bags for SS 2013 are already in the stores and you will find pastel colors and vintage inspired textures including soft shades of pink and biege – a stark contrast to last winters bold colors in green, rust and blue.

The stranger the shape . . . some would even say the better. The ideal Italian leather evening handbag is projected to hold the bare necessities for a true lady out on the town . . . her phone, her ID, a bit of mad money, a touch up lipstick … and maybe just maybe, as atomizer perfume spray bottle.

Every designer adds a line of specialty bags to those collections to match those lovely couture outfits – stunning with black satin tassels and gold colored accents. says M. Tucci from Pierotucci Leather Factory
By definition an evening bag is contained in its size, so as to not out strip the importance of the outfit and the “serata” but this does not diminish the necessity of having the just the right size. Most evening bags are shown as clutch bags, tucked under the arm and matching well with the outfit. But the reality of the events normally request that the evening bag come with a removable shoulder or cross body strap. Today’s nightlife is much more active which means your evening handbag needs to be on the move with you.
However there is no denying that the allure of an evening bag is sometimes just to add that picture perfect touch to the outfit – a designer piece like this Jason Wu bag in the 2013 Collection is the perfect example of a artists master piece.

The classical characteristics of a business bag normally focus on the primary use of carrying around one’s business in a suitable and organized method. Therefore in makes sense that a business bag will be as diverse as the many user’s themselves. Some leather bags will want lots of compartments where they can store each item on its own, some leather briefcases will lean towards just one large space – don’t forget you will have those who want tons of pockets for pens, phones, calculators, camera’s and more and those that prefer a lightweight, slim bag so that it looks more like a prop than it does a piece of equipment to be used. Whatever its ultimate design – it is always considered a necessity.
Perhaps one of the more classic types of briefcases includes the classic Italian leather business bag with a comfortable rolled top handle and a convenient removable / adjustable should strap. These elegant models go as back as those lovely black and white photos showing the “working” man coming and going to the office – a box shape with a click to open and close, were slowly replaced with a less rigid model featuring flap over tops and button lock closures. The old-fashion rigid box frame briefcases usually bring to mind James Bond 007 and the spyworld or something similarly devious, where as the softer models from leather represent the sharp business person, who dresses to impress – maybe even a doctor.
With the rising number of women in the office who were there to wheel and deal, designers were forced to create new looks that were appealing to both genders. Perhaps the emergence of female counterparts forced the designer market to accept the fact that a briefcase – though it must be functional – was a growing fashion accessories . . . for both the male and female.
A true women’s business bag will make the leap from work to play, from formal to casual, from necessary to fashion accessory in the blink of an eye. Literally it must serve a sa briefcase one moment and a leather handbag the next.
Texture, shape, comfort and elegance have taken on a new importance in the projection of and construction of a leather briefcase. Attention to details, color combinations, cut and hardware have become just as as focal as how many pockets, will it hold my iPad3 and is there room for my adapters / folders / samples.
Once fashion stepped in, it was obvious that Italian leather was not only the first choice because of its quality, durability and excellent craftsmanship but also due to the wide range of colors, textures such as embossed and saffiano finishes and most certainly for its intrinsic elegance and beauty. An Italian leather briefcase or business bag breathes a quality of success into the user. It speaks of tradition, of experience and of know how . . . and where would business be without these things.
Since 3500 BC the corno (animal horns) were hung at the entrance way of caves and dwellings. They represented power and fertility, both of which were integral parts of survival for early man. It is with these humble beginnings the Italian fascination with this symbol and their tendency to associate the corno, in all its curves and a brilliant shade of red, as one equivalent to good luck.
This is where the Pierotucci designers came up with the name #FORTUNATA for their versatile leather handbag collection – and the symbol attached to each and every Italian leather handbag. This little dangling charm is commonly used throughout Italy to fend off evil, bad luck and omens.
What better charm to have gracing your handbag than one that is trusted to bring you the best of luck and save you from those unexpected events of life.
