The more bags Il Tutto release, the more I think they should carry a big warning sign for bag addicts like me. If only I could have captured the expression on my face when the photos of these new bags landed on my desk!
Longing, desire, envy and flat-out lust just might consume you if you stare too long. Seriously, Il Tutto are further perfecting what I have long thought of as the perfect product – quality materials, divine construction, uber-gorgeous styling and utterly practical in every way.
Here’s the run-down on the new models:
Grab the ever-edgy Nico (above right) in the new colour of navy, rounding out the existing options of black and berry. I have this model in the original black and can’t say enough about the great larger size and its ability to dress up a thrown-on outfit in the middle of newborn days, when you don’t have an ounce of time for yourself.
Be quick for the luscious limited edition Il Tutto Chiara (below), of which only fifty were made in each of the new colours of chocolate and red, each with a delicious two-tone suede feature on the front zippered pocket. The Il Tutto signature teddy is also made from suede for these strictly limited bags only. Buy an optional liner to convert to a laptop bag.
If you don’t want to go patent all the way but like a little bit of gloss then the brand new Layla (below) is for you. It’s a Nappa leather zip-top tote with contrasting tan trim and patent highlighting. It’s the bag which makes a more understatedly elegant statement and comes in two impeccable colours of cream and black.
An outstanding feature of the Layla bag is its ability to convert to a laptop bag with an optional zip-in laptop liner. I don’t buy a bag unless it has dual functionality and the Layla suits my requirements to a tee!
Layla is $449, Limited Edition Chiara is $449, and the new navy Nico is $249, from Il Tutto. I just love to see Il Tutto expanding an already super-hot range. Kudos!
