The Fossati Italian Collection was inspired by Catherine Fossati Healey’s Italian heritage and love for beautiful places and things. It evokes a luxurious sense of romance and adventure. The styling is classic, the materials are impeccable, the craftsmanship meticulous. According to Catherine Fossati Healey, “Fossati handbags are designed for sophisticated women who value quality and scarcity over brand recognition”. The Italian Collection includes the Venice evening bag, Capri day bag and Milano day bag. Each bag is inspired by its namesake.
Venice. Romance, serenade, magic. Feminine and sexy the Venice evening bag will complete any evening attire, dress up casual chic look and is a perfect complement for a bride’s beautiful wedding couture. Available in natural ring lizard, silver ring lizard or gold and ivory python hand painted in Spain, the Venice evening bag measures 9 in W X 5 in H X 1.5 in D.
Capri. Aqua waters, blue sky and a warm breeze. Luxurious but laid back, the sleek low profile of the Capri bag can be used during the day and cruise right into the evening. Capri is available in scrumptious black and white python, luscious red full quill ostrich, and cool saddle white full quill ostrich. Each Capri bag has a dark chocolate lizard handle and shoulder strap. The shoulder strap is detachable. The Capri day bag measures 13 in W X 7 in H X 4 in D.
The Milano, named after the fashion capital of Italy where the Fossati family originates, is a classic. Reminiscent of the most classic and prestigious bags, Milano is elegant, sophisticated and luxuriously comfortable to carry. “It’s bold for a startup to name a bag after the fashion capital of Italy but starting a luxury brand during an economic meltdown is bold. The design is classic with staying power.” said Catherine Fossati Healey . Milano is available in delicious gold and ivory python, red full quill ostrich and saddle white full quill ostrich. The Italian hardware is exquisite right down to the gold plated pyramid shaped studs used for feet. The Milano bag measures 12 in W X 9 in H X 4 in D.
