Aquazzura first foray into the handbag market at PFW F/W 23/24 by Leticia Dare

Dear Shaded Viewers,


Aquazzura has made its first foray into the handbag market with a Pre-Fall 2023 collection that stays true to the brand’s signature craftsmanship and unmistakable stylistic codes. Creative Director Edgardo Osorio’s vision for the handbag collection translates into a high-end range that embodies modernity and timeless refinement.

From day-to-night, the collection boasts an array of shapes that are sure to turn heads. The “Downtown 24/7” shoulder bag stands out with its shimmering gold chain triangle-shape accessory, while the “Twist” maxi-clutch in soft nappa showcases a sculptural metal clasp that harks back to the brand’s eponymous sandals with a shiny gold-finish twisted heel.

The evening collection is equally impressive, with the “Galactic Crystal” and “Love Link” bags adding a precious touch to any outfit with their jewel-embellished handles or straps. The “Kiss Me” minaudiere is a playful take on classic evening styles, while the Tequila clutch, the brand’s first-ever handbag, is crafted in transparent plexi with crystals and contrasting interiors for a dazzling optical effect.

Premium materials such as buttery nappa, raffia, laminated leathers, luxurious exotic croco prints, and satin have been carefully selected for their quality, flexibility, and elegance. The color palette is equally impressive, with bright, glossy hues of emerald green, Ibiza blue, and sunflower yellow jewel alongside timeless black, camel, and white.

The designs of the collection are crafted in selected workshops in Tuscany, Italy, with statement hardware and graceful tassels that add movement and texture. Aquazzura’s pineapple symbol and logo add the finishing touch to the aquamarine-hued interiors.

In summary, Aquazzura’s handbag collection is a natural extension of the brand’s longstanding reputation for excellence in footwear design. Edgardo Osorio’s vision and expertise have created a collection that embodies the brand’s joyful, eclectic aesthetic, Italian workmanship, and universal beauty. The collection is available in all flagship boutiques, selected high-end department stores, and on
