Cuore & Pelle: Falling In Love With Leather Over and Over Again
Selling its initial stock of 5,000 units in just 5 minutes when it debuted on Good Morning America’s “Deals and Steals” segment, Cuore and Pelle has etched its name in the fashion industry and has also become a favourite of celebrities as well. Since it was first launched in a private trunk show in Los Angeles in February 2010, every fashionista has been clamouring to get their hands on a Cuore & Pelle bag.
Italian for “Heart” and “Leather”, Cuore & Pelle brings together love for fashion and the luxury of genuine leather in perfect harmony. All bags are lovingly crafted from high-quality genuine leathers which are selected for their unique textures and colors. As beautifully made each bag is, each one is also functional and durable.
I was fortunate enough to have received my very own Cuore & Pelle bag, the Caterina Purse in Blue/Black. The top flap in a vivid blue color adds drama to the black purse while the gold-toned turn-lock clasp gives it an elegant flair. The top flap opens to reveal a zip closure which ensures that everything is secure inside the bag. There’s an interior wall pocket that conveniently holds my mobile phone and an exterior zip pocket that keeps my car and house keys accessible. This purse also comes with a removable shoulder strap which I can just as easily attach when I need to have both hands free.
What I love most about the Caterina Purse is that it is functional as it is elegant. The stitching has been meticulously done and, dainty as it looks, the bag feels quite sturdy. I can actually put my stuff in the bag without fear of tearing a seam or breaking a handle. Moreover, I also love the distinct smell that comes only from the finest genuine Italian leather.
Retailing at $385, the Caterina Purse is a bag of luxury made more affordable. The quality of leather and the superb craftsmanship makes this Coure & Pelle bag a steal at such a reasonable price. If blue isn’t your color, there are other color schemes available for this line. The Caterina Purse also comes in Snake Print-Gray, Snake Print-Sunset, Black, Ivory/Black and Pink/Black so there’s one for any fashionista.
Cuore & Pelle also has totes, satchels, shoulder bags, wristlets, and wallets all crafted from genuine leather. With prices ranging from $79 – $600, you can have a piece of luxury without breaking the bank. Seeing their fabulous collection of leather bags, I really can’t wait to see their collection of belts, laptop cases, men’s wallet’s and key chains which are supposed to be launched this year.
