Evening bags: A Classic Story of simple, sparkle and shine

You ask. We answer.

An evening bag  is one of the most important items in a woman’s wardrobe. This magnificent accessory has been a prized possession since the 1700s and continues to be so today. An evening bag completes and uplifts an outfit. On occasion, it can even be  the centerpiece of  your look.

Luxurious and classic designs prevail in the winter 09/10 collections as the leading trends. Classic is what’s hot now. Clutches and minaudieres are among the favorite shapes, embellished with jewels and sequins or made by luxurious leather.

Some designs focus on beautiful crafting and stitching, or finishes with chain handles, which can take you straight from the boardroom to the party. If you are looking for an evening bag your focus should be sparkle and shine. If you like simple and chic,  black, charcoal, silver and white are the dominating colors for you. If you are more adventurous opt for rich reds, fuchsia and electric blue. Ruffles, swarovski crystals, exotic skins  are the perfect touch of glamour for those New Year’s Eve parties.

Happy shopping and happy 2010.
