New Handbags by Gianni Conti

The first trio of handbags I want to talk about are from the designer Gianni Conti. First of all, they come in three color options. A dark gray with black trim, a caramel brown, and deep ruby red with black trim. The front of the bag offers two zip pockets and the back has one large horizontal zip pocket. The bag sports one handle that is long enough to be worn on the shoulder. Additionally, customers can wear it as a cross body bag, with the long strap provided. In addition, the inside of the bag is very roomy with two open pockets, big enough to fit a phone, wallet, or keys, and a side zip pocket. Finally, if you’re a compartment lover this bag is perfect for you as it offers great. http://gianniconti.com

Introducing Alex & Co.

The next style is smaller than the first mentioned handbags. These handbags are also Gianni Conti but from their sportier line called Alex & Co., new to Poppi Italian Leather.  Also, the bags are a perfect accessory for a night out or if you just prefer the look of the smaller handbag.  Furthermore, the colors available are beige rose, olive green, and black. It has a twisted rope design down the front middle of the flap, and a design detail of a zipper that encircles the rounded shape. There is a zip top under the flap as well as a zipper pocket on the inside. Customers can use this handbag as a shoulder or cross body bag. http://poppiitalianleather.com

Vintage Woven Handbag Styles

For those of our shoppers who love the vintage woven look in handbags, we have new styles in this story line. In particular, one style being a medium bucket bag with an exterior vertical pocket. It sports one handle for the shoulder, and has a long adjustable and removable cross body strap. Specifically offered in neutral taupe or chocolate brown. On the other hand, this style features a woven front flap with smooth leather on the body of the bag. Under the flap are two open pockets for exterior storage along with a back horizontal zip pocket. This bag gives you the best of both worlds and it comes in deep red or black. The third woven bag is a medium messenger or cross body bag with a slim profile. It has an exterior zip pocket with a long adjustable strap, available in red, black or taupe. http://pellealvegetale.it

Poppi Italian Leather Attends The White and One Apparel Shows

The owner attended two apparel shows while in Italy.  One called ‘ONE’ and the second show the ‘The White Show’. Throughout her trip she sent pictures of the new styles for the Spring/Summer collection. It was interesting to see the new styles for spring.  And fun to see what the attendees were wearing. Style is a universal language. We are all influenced by trends. It begins on the design floors of the fashions houses in Italy and ends in the boutiques across the world. https://www.pinterest.com/explore/italy-street-fashion/

Mipel is the leading bag show for Poppi Italian Leather

The third show Poppi attended was called ‘Mipel’ which is a leading bag show. Mipel showcases an enormous collection of fashion bags, casual bags, party bags, contemporary bags, branded bags, designer bags and other varieties of bags. It is  well-known for allowing the visitors to communicate virtually with the showrooms while providing huge resources to the buyer.  The exhibitors are also given a wonderful chance to communicate with new customers and showcase their latest collections.

I love Italian Leather handbags thus this show would be my favorite to attend. While there, Poppi took many pictures of the showrooms and the handbag. In one showroom the handbags were arrayed in color order so it was this gorgeous rainbow of finely made bags. In another showroom the bags were arranged to tell a story from the smallest to largest. All the showrooms offered an array of goodies to snack on and espresso or Prosecco to sip while shopping.

Why Poppi goes to the shows

Poppi attends the shows to make selections for the following season. It is a daunting process but this is how the bags, apparel, jewelry and glassware arrive at Poppi Italian Leather. Everything selected at the shows is designed and manufactured in Italy. Its a long way to go. But in a world that is geared towards mass-production its worthwhile offering something of quality, value and uniqueness ‘Made in Italy’.  http://madeinitaly.org/en/
