Traditionally speaking, Italian leather handbags are either labeled with the adjectives elegant and sophisticate – like Chanel, Louis Vutton, Pierotucci, Francesco Biasia and Royal Highness or they are considered on the cutting edge, pushing designers to look a little further like Caterina Lucchi, Furla and Gucci.
But there really is a third category and that is fun and fanciful, like Braccialini. This designer takes fashion to a truly playful level asking the wearer to be lighthearted – perhaps reminding them to smell the roses along the way. One of the more recent designs from Braccialini calls out to animal lovers across the world.
Doting cat and dog owners should get a good laugh out of these appliques mixing texture, bling, and colors to form the perfect image to go with the embroidered catch phrase.
Honestly speaking it’s a bit difficult to decide if this items are for the younger crowd or simply the young at heart. With themes that could potentially appeal to my 13 year old niece (like Rock Cat, with 3D whiskers!) or even my Mom, who is totally infatuated with her cuddly little dog – definitely under the heading Princess Dog, royal crown included.
