While summer is the season of discreet, barely-there accessories, fall dressing calls for more substantial pieces. This is your season if you love to indulge in luxurious leather or soft suede handbags in rich colors. Whether you live in a warmer climate or the temperatures in your hometown already begin to dip come September, there’s no better staple to take your wardrobe from summer to fall than your handbag. But cooler weather means more stuff to carry—how do you find a gorgeous bag that will hold your umbrella and an extra chunky sweater too?
Enter Maria Cardelli, the Italian fashion designer with an eye for vibrant colors and the highest quality leather—and a flair for combining elegance with practicality. Her collections are designed and handmade in Italy, where she oversees every step of the process. The Messenger Prunga bag, made with Nubuck leather, has the ideal balance of style and functionality. It includes three spacious sections, a zippered compartment, and an adjustable shoulder strap and comes in beautifully saturated colors with a pearlescent finish. It’s the perfect statement bag to wear with fall knits and posh neutrals.
The Bicolor bag has a stunning two-tone feature. The deep black exterior is made from soft, full-grain calf leather and is offset by a vibrant pop of red on either side. With three interior sections, two that close by zipper, this is the ultimate all-day bag. Whether you’re toting your laptop to work or enjoying the crisp weather and the changing leaves, the Bicolor bag will carry everything you need—and pair beautifully with both your casual sweater dress and your more formal work pieces.
When you’re ready to swap out that little straw clutch for a bag that can take you through the cooler-weather months looking chic as can be, search no further than Maria Cardelli Fashion. With the highest standard of craftsmanship and an eye for classic, luxurious pieces, Maria Cardelli designs bags that will take you through the next season—and many seasons thereafter.
