For many women, the handbag is a conscious, pragmatic and intensely personal choice. Meant to carry a day’s worth (or maybe more) of essentials, the quintessential handbags of today need to be versatile and still equally arresting.
Enter ‘The Essentials Collection’. A joint collaboration between two homegrown fashion giants, Tocco Toscano and ARISSA X, the capsule collection melds together both functionality and form in the classic carryall for the modern woman.
Bolstering the design elements featured from the Aimee Tote Series from Tocco Toscano, ‘The Essentials Collection’ features the unique BiB (Bag-in-Bag) concept and arrives in four statement pieces. Running the gamut from the classic tote, evening clutch bag, mini satchel and a bifold wallet — all of which can be placed one inside the other — with the smaller pieces fitting well inside the progressively bigger pieces. The adaptable and multi-faceted collection allows for the Toscano woman to easily transition between work and play.
Available in six colour variants — namely black, green, burgundy, grey, navy and dusty pink — and comprising of luxurious cowhide leather and sleek metal accents, the collection is imbued with a subtle sense of femininity and is meant to empower the women on-the-go.
“Providing both form and function is the reason why this collaboration came about,” says fashion entrepreneur, Arissa Cheo. “This collection is meant to celebrate the modern professional woman who appreciates versatility in the products she buys.”
