Tod's Marlene Torcigione East/West Bag



When a handbag appeals to women of all ages, it becomes a classic. I know this term is used incessantly throughout the handbag world (I'm guilty!), but there is no doubt this bag has all the qualifications of a classic.

Tod's Marlene Torcigione East/West Bag is made from gathered soft grained leather and finely accentuated with polished silver hardware. A "twist" theme can be seen throughout the bag from twisted piping along the edges, to a twisted shoulder strap, to a large toggle closure. The interior features textile lining, a leather-trimmed zip pocket, and two leather-trimmed patch pockets. This elegant design is finished off with an appropriate vintage frame top. Measuring 16 x 9, the 'Marlene' is generously sized for daily functionality. See, I told you she's a classic.

If you feel it's time to take a break from trendy bags and go back to basics, add this classic (ha, ha) to your collection for $945 via eLUXURY.

    I have this bag in the lighter shade and I love it to bits! I am now also eyeing the Marlene Smock Tracolla in black suede.
