Evening Bags from Italian
Cosci, Michael Kors, Moshino, Furla and more in Italian leather
After the gorgeous dress, the killer stilettos, the seamless makeup, polished nails and the divine fragrance the next obvious step in dressing to go out at night is the perfect evening bag. Traditionally these designer evening bags are black satin, black patent leather or black sequin but in every case these little leather handbags are considereg no more (or less) than an accessory – a designer piece that will enhance your overall appearance.
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.
At one time you would have thrown in a pair of opera length leather gloves, but you only see those on the fashion runways anymore!
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.
