Fausti, who owns a high-end store in Bergamo, Italy, and who recently inaugurated a boutique in Lugano, Switzerland, has designed a luxury shopping bag and is selling it on her Web site and in her stores. Named Fedra (after Fausti’s mother), the tote is available in two sizes and is handmade in Italy by local artisans.
Featuring hunting-inspired details and equestrian references, Fedra is “elegant yet practical,” Fausti said. “This bag really reflects my taste, mixing luxury with functionality.”
The bag comes in a leather version that includes a detachable clutch inside, and in crocodile. Prices range from 880 euros, or $1,165 at current exchange, to 9,000 euros, or $11,910.
