Fashion accessories…
Americans consider Italian women’s fashion style iconic and glamourous.

Seems like they think Italian girls are all fashionistas with a native sense of style: the Internet is populated by tutorials on “how to get dressed like Italians” or “how to wear Italian style”.

Those tutorials give advice to wear skinny jeans and high heels to look like an Italian. It’s curious how they think in Italy we all wear like this!

American women are willing to emulate our Italian tradition of “la bella figura”, that means getting dressed neat and elegant. That’s why fashion products “made in Italy” are so popular in the USA: they guarantee to the wearer a timeless elegance, quality and an unique style.

People often say, American haute couture maisons are less clever at creating fashionable accessories than European and especially Italian ones.

Is it true that an American lady who wants to invest her money in a fabulous it-bag should only buy Prada or Bulgari? So, here are our favorite bags from American couture brands for the season fall\winter 2015-2016:

MICHAEL-KORSMichael Kors played with dark fall colors on his ready-to-go handbags.

We love his marsala nuance, charming but easy to wear. A clever maxibag to wear on the shoulder (damn it’s big!), totes, mini cross-body models and the “little black backpack”, as we like to call it, with precious golden details.

Michael Kors also uses pale pink for autumn bags, despite it being usually used in spring collections.

We also love Chanel-inspired minibags from DKNY.

jimmy-chooJimmy Choo drove us crazy with animalier ultra-feminine prints and some black maxibags with metal details that we would wear day and night.

There’s also a clutch covered in glitter, a cross-body pochette in black with a golden strap you can use to wear it on your shoulder for added comfort, and a minimal pochette.

Jimmy Choo too uses pale pink and other typical spring colors for his autumn handbags.
