Can’t get your hands on a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag for summer? Don’t sweat it. Literally translated to “beautiful flower” in Italian, Isabella Fiore’s bohemian vibes will make you want to book a ticket somewhere, anywhere – and fast. These handbags don’t need a preface as an accessory inspiring enough to take you on a wild adventure. They’re bright, bold and fun, yet remain practical and extremely affordable.
Although seemingly revolutionary, Fiore was one of the first brands to create a contemporary designer handbag that won’t break the bank. In 2006, after Katie Holmes wore an IF bag on her first date with Tom Cruise in Italy (ugh miss you guys), the bag immediately sold out. The design team has also been nominated for the CDFA Perry Ellis Award for Excellence as well as the Designer of the Year Award from the Accessories Council in the early 2000s. I smell a comeback.
From the wide-set stitching to the perforated patterns on genuine leather, I’m ready to throw my online shopping resistance to the wind. Buy me this bag, get me to the coast of Italy, and arrivederci people!
