The Gucci Handbag Is Still Popular

The Gucci handbag is one of the most coveted purses on the market today. Of course, the designs of Guccio Gucci are desired but what one may not understand is how he came to be. The history of the Gucci handbags is an interesting one and has set the tone in the couture world of today’s fashion cosmos. Becoming an educated person about the history of the Gucci house is as easy using the computer keyboard.

Before 1906, designing handbags was just a dream of Guccio Gucci’s. In 1906, however, he opened a saddle shop in Florence. He was a whiz with leather items, and he quickly became well known for his horse tack. It was not until 1938 that he opened his first retail store on the Via Condotti in Rome.

This store was devoted to his fine crafted leather goods. However, in 1947, the famous Gucci designer bag with a bamboo handle was created. This new area of leather items initiated a firestorm of purchases that would shoot his name into fashion history.

With the design of the handbag came fame that Guccio Gucci could have only dreamed of in 1906. Everyone around the world began to see famous starlets such as Audrey Hepburn and Princess Grace Kelly carrying a Gucci handbag.

This type of fame would follow the Gucci house for years to come. The company saw hard times in the 1990’s, but with a new management and design team, he has returned to the forefront of the designer handbag niche.

When looking for the perfect accompaniment to that little black dress, one would be smart to find that perfect Gucci handbag. Guccio Gucci created a huge empire that still stands tall in the fashion world today. The house of Gucci has come a long way from 1906 when the small saddlery was created by Guccio. With the internet, anyone can own a piece of Gucci if they are willing to pay the price.

Follow The Foxcrow Philosophy

If you are looking for a very different and diverse new handbag line, look no further than Foxcrow Philosophy. This luxury brand, designed by graphic designer Joe Charles, popped onto the scene last year just in time to debut their Spring 2009 collection. This collection focused mainly on premium leathers presented in funky styles, all embossed with the symbolic Foxcrow logo (a crow on top of a fox). From the success of this first collection, the brand moved on to presentt one of the most glamorous Fall/Winter handbag collections I have seen so far. It is full of those same premium leathers but also expands to incorporate exotic feathers, furs and skins.

Choose from classic styles such as their Bowler Bag (pictured above) or smaller funkier bags like their Lipstick bags in feather or fur (pictured below). I am absolutely obsessed with the Lipstick bag from the Spring 2009 collection that features red patent leather, a long chain strap and a large silver Foxcrow emblem. This is the perfect party bag.

Prices on these bags range from $150- $650 depending on the type of materials used, but no matter what bag you choose, quality is what you?ll get? in addition to a bag that never goes out of style. Look for these pieces at Tulips in New York?s Lower East Side and soon online.

P.S.- The fur and feather bags run for under $300!!
