Salvatore Ferragamo Apollonia Handbag | Stunning Designer Python Satchel

Posted on: Dec 4

From well-known shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo comes this stunning handbag that is truly red carpet worthy. If you live in LA (or just read the tabloids), you might see Reese Witherspoon sporting one on a date with Jake or just on a quick jaunt to Starbucks.

While Ferragamo's designs are usually a little conservative for my personal taste, the Apollonia strikes a fascinating balance between rock hard edginess and chic elegance. The pared down, clean lines of the bag allow the truly spectacular snakeskin to show through. The nuanced palette of the intricate pattern is something that only nature could create.

The bag is made from a reticulated python that weighs in at over 200 pounds. The size of the snake may seem immaterial to the handbag, but it's the very material of the bag itself that makes it so interesting. The size of the snake means that the relatively small amount taken for the purse is of a more uniform pattern than your usual python. This uniformity definitely adds to the subtly streamlined appearance of the Apollonia.

The 17" x 12.5" x 4.5" size is big enough to accommodate the everyday necessities of even the most heavily-armed fashionista. It also fits the bill for this season's trend of huge bags. The goldtone hardware with wood insets also make the Apollonia striking. The only real problem lies in the bag's affordability, or lack thereof. At about $4,000, the Apollonia makes a very expensive statement. Of course, exotic skins are always pricey, but they are also delicate, so you have to consider the practicality of an expensive bag that you'll want to carry everywhere, but will have to handle with care.
