After 37 years in the handbag business, designer Carlos Falchi is applying his signature style to bags for American men. For years, retailers and male friends asked Falchi for multiples of the custom designs he always made for himself, he said, and a few years ago he gave in, but only in Japan. The men’s collection now launching in the U.S. features plenty of Falchi’s exotic skins, but not as much color as the women’s — just black, brown, red and green — and no signature collages for now.
“My idea was to bring in the mixing of the materials and also make it younger and fresher, with attention to men who are antibag. For Europeans it’s natural to carry a bag, but American men are just starting,” he said.
