The Salvatore Ferragamo Top Handle Satchel means business, and it’s not going to put up with any of your flack. It’s an office bag if I’ve ever seen one, and although it evokes thoughts of the Hermes Kelly, it’s not iconic in a way that would tell all of your coworkers exactly how much you spend on your accessories. This kind of discretion is recommended by some in the current economic climate, but I’m just recommending it because I think it’s an interesting bag. The design isn’t totally buttoned – up; its structure is sleekly post-modern on the side gussets, and the hardware that holds it together is something I’d like to see in person. What we have here is a reimagining of a classic shape that’s office-appropriate without being obvious and interesting without being odd. Buy through Saks for $1890.
When I think of Ferragamo I think of the absolutely drool-worthy Salvatore Ferragamo Oversized Carlotta Alligator Tote. I dream about that bag. I yearn for that bag. I feel as if I absolutely need that bag. But there is a tiny thing called reality, that sets in and tells me, YOU ARE NUTS! The $35,000 price tag really is out of my league and if I thought buying a Birkin was nerve-wrecking, this would most likely end with my passing out.
What I realized about Salvatore Ferragamo bags after reviewing the Carlotta is their beauty. We all know their shoes, and many women swear by them. And now I can imagine many women swearing by their bags. The leather is supple, the craftsmanship is impeccable, the look manifests understated elegance perfectly. Take the Salvatore Ferragamo Sartoria Pebble Calfskin Clutch for example, which is dressed up with a handwoven accent down the center of the purple leather framed clutch. There is a black lucite closure, which is an unexpected addition. The clutch is a good size, 12Â¼”W X 6Â¾”H X 2Â½”D, and I adore the overall feel. And with a sale price of $714 (marked down from $1,190) the price tag is much more friendly to my wallet and the amount of money I am willing to spend. Buy through Saks for $714.
