Right from the heart of Italy (OK, a little the the left) come some the the most invigorating styles for women who have the desire to be the protagonist in their own lives. Thus they have always offered style which can be considered avant garde and forward thinking, maybe even a little aggressive. That wouldn’t necessarily be the opportune word for this little design – but . . .
Caterina Lucchi leather accessories have been making waves in the Italian fashion world for several years, and the Italian leather handbags left in her wake are turning heads internationally and we can honestly say, we see why. Just have a look at this hand tote bag in a soft, neutral color – it is loaded with carrying options, pockets and . . . well obviously class!
Fitting all the criteria for a casual hand tote bag, the example has a handle drop of 10 cm which are a perfect compliment to the size of the bag. However it is obvious that the Caterina Lucchi styles keep in mind that the modern woman needs to be versatile and the designers have thrown in two different cross body options. One is a soft leather adjustable strap and the other is a chain link which has been varnished to give an “antique” look about it.
Though both options are a luxury to have, the thin chain link cross body strap doesn’t appear to be as practical to have as an adjustable leather shoulder strap.
What are your thoughts on a should strap? Would you use a chain link? Do you see it as practical – comfortable – usable?
