IT’S IN THE BAG
Sergio Rossi, the shoe company known for its sleek ultra-sexy stilettos, is now taking a stab at handbags. In the past, Rossi has toyed with the idea, offering a few styles each season. But for spring, they’ve developed a full line that has the same streamlined, edgy look as the shoe collection.
The handbags blend a Fifties sex-kitten retro flair with a decidedly modern sensibility: small wrist-handle clutches in ruched leather, terrific top-handle snakeskin lady bags, and razor-thin shoulder bags. What’s more, they come in a range of racy metallic colors, and, for a more glamorous effect, some of the evening numbers are accented with semi-precious stones.
The line will be available in January at Sergio Rossi stores in New York, Bal Harbour and Houston.
