I was recently introduced to the TEMI by Braccialini line of fantasy themed bags. Loving interestingly designed accessories, I really wanted to blog about these. A collection of fun and aesthetically elaborate bags with a hint of quirk, the line just reminded me of something you’d find in Carrie Bradshaw’s closet. Debuting this season are PettiRosso (robin), Violino (violin) and Fisarmonica (accordian). I especially love the Fisarmonica!
As much as they aren’t for the faint-hearted, there is something special about these bags that’s makes them really interesting. Each piece is handcrafted using the highest standard of Italian craftsmanship with only 1 piece of each design available in Singapore. Each piece feels like carrying a piece of art. Even just displaying them in a glass case would be exquisite.
PettiRossais a robin shaped bag with feathers and suede and kidskin polychrome leathers. The handbag features a fine ‘piping construction’; the beak is made of golden hammered metal. [RRP: $2,530]
Violinois a precious hand-dabbed and hand-smoothed calfskin creates a real violin. The golden enameled brass accessory plays a leather role for this sophisticated handbag. The ‘molded form’ construction is the result of experience artisanship. [RRP: $2,530]
Fisarmonica might be a handbag, but this accordian seems real enough to play. It is made of brushed calfskin and kidskin. Maniacal attention to detail makes it richly unique: the golden metal plaque with musical notes, the mother-of-pearl look keys, the black leather bellows and the colourful enameled flowers. [RRP: $2,720]
