THE CITY COLLECTION FW18
The 2018 Fall Winter collection is dedicated to the modern metropolitan woman. Marina Raphael handbags are created to accompany her as she traverses the globe. They are designed to meet her every need, by being spacious and versatile yet refined enough to be paired with her evening looks.
The City Collection features three sizes, each with a specific function in mind. For the international business woman starting her day enjoying a coffee at Café De Flore, we introduce the "Bureau" bag. The medium size bag, known as “l’Avenue,” is the perfect city companion for running errands while always looking her best. As the night falls the “Midnight” bag is an elegant petite number that adds an extra je ne sais quoi to her outfit, while the Lara shoulder strap lets her dance the night away.
This collection features delicate handmade velvet studs of differing sizes and colours composed in strong horizontal lines. Interlaid between the studs, Swarovski cut crystals create a sparkling dichotomy of textures. The result is a geometric lattice that is pleasing to the touch and unique to the eye. The seamless handles are made of solid brass, and coloured in a galvanic bath of gold, palladium or ruthenium. A small mirror of the same metal finish can be found in a discrete pocket inside each bag. Every item is hand made in Florence, Italy, in the heart of the famed luxury leather goods district, using 100% Italian calf leather and only the finest skins from our tannery in Santa Croce.
Made for women of today who dare to be bold, we strive to create a transformative power through one unique accessory that will make women feel confident. While respecting the benchmarks of classic design, we have explored modern materials and ambitious techniques. In the City Collection we present to the world of fashion wearable objects d’art that will elevate every woman’s style. They are luxury accessories that will compliment any look; statement pieces that reinvent any wardrobe.
