Here's German supermodel/eternal babe Claudia Schiffer leaving a restaurant in London, carrying a Salvatore Ferragamo Emidia Suede Crossbody Bag. Claudia actually lives in the UK with her husband, film director Matthew Vaughn, and their three kiddos. Her bag is no longer available in stores, but you can shop a vast assortment of Ferragamo handbags, belts, and accessories at Bloomingdale's.
When it comes to Italian fashion houses, Ferragamo is on the "classic and (comparatively) conservative" side of the spectrum, which is a boon to ladies who love a beautifully made handbag but don't feel the need to smack people in the face with conspicuous brand labeling, logos or over-the-top detailing. We loved Ferragamo's latest Fall 2014 collection; it was full of plump little top-handled bags that were heavy on the Italian luxury touches and light on the flash - perfect for carrying during work or play.
