Glazed City and Fold

Alice F. who is the photographer for Alduca D'aosta shared with us some amazing pictures of another new variation of the City and a new clutch called the "Fold" for F/W 2011. These particular styles will be available for purchase on their site within a couple of days.

She says its called the "Glazed" City and the Fold is a new clutch style.   It looks like it is made from patent leather and lined with gold piping.  Another interesting thing on this City is that the whip-stitching on the handles are facing outwards which gives it a nice touch.  Also, instead of the aged brass hardware on the classic bags, these styles have black coated hardware.  Like a great black patent pump, this could make a lovely addition to your wardrobe.  It is ideal for those who prefer a more structured bag with a sleek and classic shape.  The structured look of this City reminds me of the Givenchy Antigona which is a hit bag for this season among the celebrities.  The clutch reminds me of an envelope which the flap closure folds securely into the tab which would make the perfect evening bag.

Johanna Preiss was spotted carrying a glazed bag (looks like a First) to the Balenciaga Paris runway S/S 2012 runway show. 
Thank you Alice for letting us preview these photos!
