Braccialini: where beauty and fashion meet

Have you heard of the luxury handbag brand Braccialini? If you are a Lord & Taylor shopper you’ve probably seen some of their beautiful creations in store or online. I was lucky enough to be sent a Braccialini Tua 3D Cosmetic bag that thrills me when I open my handbag and see it inside.

What makes Braccialini so unique is that they have a sense of fun and fantasy combined with the practical. This 9.5″ x 6″ cosmetic bag has 3D accents that are beautifully designed and add a touch of delight to their design.

Iconic Braccialini, now available in 50 countries, was founded by highly-awarded, edgy Florence-based designer Carla Braccialini over 60 years ago.  Braccialini is especially known for innovative leather textures and styles, remarkable craftsmanship, and proprietary processing technologies – with new leather treatments and effects discovered every season. The TUA Division of Braccialini offers original artful handbags, both classic and seasonal.

Braccialini and TUA handbags and accessories are an editorial favorite in Europe, especially Italy. They are frequently found on the international pages of Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, Madame Figaro, Amica, Grazia and among others.

Two bags were recently designed that have 3D elements. Beauty Break shares beauty products in a cosmetic case while Business Trip has everything you need for travel time: a neck pillow, tablet, agenda, calendar, clock, tote all delightfully embroided on. The bag itself is leather while the accessories are a variety of fun materials – a cushy silky neckpillow, patent leather pouch on the agenda, as well as material for some of the great designs.

Even the patent leather strap and zipper are quality driven.

It even comes with a dust bag and card of authenticity. How many cosmetic cases can say that?

I’ve had dozens of cosmetic bags over the years but I’ve never experienced one that has the beauty and durability of this Tua Braccialini pouch. It also doubles as a clutch so it makes it even more valuable, one less item to pack! It retails for $105 but Lord & Taylor is known for its sales. This would make a gift to be remembered.

If 3D isn’t your style, how about a Braccialini New Lady B Iconic Clock Pouch? This $98 cosmetic pouch is on sale for $73.50 but looks like a million.

Now that this brand has been introduced to me I can’t get enough of their innovative bags, wallets, and pouches. I can picture the smiles these will get if received as a gift, I know my smile is gleaming.  —  Marcia
