Louis Vuitton Alma v Arcadia Onion Handbag

When The Real Handbag Team went to the Milan trade fair in Italy, we discovered some outrageously gorgeous handbags under the brand name Arcadia. With an authentic Italian pedigree, they’re the kind of bags you might expect to see on the arm of a very stylish lady who steps effortlessly out of a Ferrari with an air of nonchalance. Sporty, fashionable and classic in one breath!

The Arcadia Large Shoulder Tote in grey Italian leather at £179.95 is an exquisite piece made from high quality cow hide and expertly crafted to emulate crocodile skin, much prized amongst the most admired celebrities and famously talented actresses of our day. The polished leather has a magnificent colour combination of light grey tones and dark grey shades which accentuate the designer effect beautifully. Although a large bag, the leather is elegantly light so you’re getting all the designer quality without being weighed down. As with all Italian products, the price you pay ensures fine tailoring and a smart, professional executive finish.

Louis Vuitton Alma £1,180.00 v Arcadia Onion Handbag £139.95

If you like the idea of patterned leather but don’t fancy the mock-croc look, the Arcadia Onion Handbag in smouldering dark red patent leather at £139.95 is expertly embossed with a modern, contemporary pattern. This is crisp, silky-smooth, patent leather with a glossy finish. The deep red colour has a highly reflective shine which gives the bag a vibrant, luxurious appeal. Bearing more than a passing resemblance to Louis Vuitton’s Alma bag at £1,180.00, you’re getting all the designer quality without the designer price tag!
