Sienna Rose New Leather Handbags Autumn/Winter 2009…

With the approach of Autumn, my thoughts always turn to images of sunlight through canopies of woodland trees, crisp morning air, ripe juicy blackberries peeking out through the hedgerows just begging to be picked, the vivid blaze of colour created by nature changing the dappled leaves on dark brown branches from lush green to rich gold, fiery orange to russet red. I also start to think of a new handbag to match the mood of the coming season!

Sienna Rose has positively embraced the colours of Autumn with some truly inspirational designs for their new Autumn/Winter 2009 Leather Handbag Collection. Each style comes in a stunning two colour combination made from the most fabulous high quality leather. Prices start from just £44.95 for the fashionably slouchy Sienna Rose Cross-Body Bag which comes in Wine Red with Dark Chocolate Brown, Brown with Dark Chocolate Brown and Black with Dark Chocolate Brown.

Also highly recommended is the Sienna Rose Ziptop Bag made from soft, sensuous leather which comes in Arjile Tan Brown with Dark Chocolate Brown, Wine Red with Dark Chocolate Brown or Black with Dark Chocolate Brown at £64.95.

However, by far the most popular style so far has been the gorgeously soft and supple Sienna Rose Two-Tone Tote Bag in Red Wine with Dark Chocolate Brown at £74.95.

The Sienna Rose Hobo Bag & Matching Purse reminds me of the Radley range with its silky-smooth refined elegant leather and decorative leather stitch, every bit as good quality only much more affordable at £49.95. Choose from Green with Dark Chocolate Brown or Black with Dark Chocolate Brown.

Let's hope we have an 'Indian Summer' this Autumn!

Which Leather Messenger Bags for University & College Students?

Firstly, a big CONGRATULATIONS to all of you who passed your A’Levels in August 2009 and were accepted into university or college, especially those students who achieved all ‘A’ grades. WELL DONE!

If you’re one of the aforementioned, then you’ll already know that the coolest bags to take to Uni or College when you start the new term are Visconti Messenger Bags in Hunter leathers. If you’re the proud parents of aspiring undergraduates and wish to reward good A’Level results with more than a pat on the back, then I should tell you all about the coolest bags to be seen with on campus.

Visconti leather has that dark and sultry look about it. Visconti products are made from the finest leather and have that wonderful new leather aroma. Leather items may have wrinkles, scars, scratches that are inherent characteristics and natural beauty of the hide. The leather is designed to scratch easily but these marks will blend in time adding to the character of the bag. This is strong, high quality leather and with a choice of finishes, there's no doubt that these Visconti Messenger Bags have plenty of attitude. All Visconti bags are designed to be unisex (think Toni & Guy hairdressing) so it’s just a question of colour preference, really.

MUD BROWN: distressed leather which has a smooth matt surface and superb oiled finish with antique brass fittings.
BLACK: newly designed leather for 2009, distressed leather which has a smooth matt surface and superb oiled finish with silver fittings.
MOCHA: smooth, highly polished dark brown leather which has that refined professional look about it and antique brass fittings.

Visconti messenger bags come in a variety of sizes for laptop, folders, files, textbooks, pencil cases and lunch boxes! Prices start from just £49.95. Visit The Real Handbag Shop to see the full range. And don't be surprised if your Professor turns up with one of these, he's just one cool dude!

The exciting new Gianni Conti leather bags online...

Superb Gianni Conti leather handbags, work bags and purses/wallets are coming soon to The Real Handbag Shop

Already sold in many high street outlets such as London department stores and independent shops throughout the U.K. Gianni Conti are now available for you to buy online.

The new Gianni Conti Maremma Collection will be the first to arrive. Maremma leathers have beautiful deep, rich overtones. This is exquisite sturdy, solid leather reminiscent of saddles and harnesses with a squeaky newness and subtle satin sheen, yet retaining a gentle, soft quality to the surface. Every Gianni Conti product is made from the finest leather and has that gorgeous new leather aroma. Each product is made with a hide tanned using extracts of vegetable origin. This process helps to protect the environment as both production waste and the final product are biodegradable. Slight differences in colour are characteristic of such hides and enhance their appearance. With their attractive shapes, neat stitching and finely tailored cut there’s no doubt that Maremma leather products have plenty of kudos.
