I recently attended handbags designer Corto Moltedo's trunk show hosted by Zainab Alabdulrazzaq and Expose Communications at Sadu House. I was kind of excited about the event because it reminded me of the day when I bought my first Corto Moltedo clutch 5 or maybe 6 years ago from Net-a-porter (not stocked there anymore), I still have it stored somewhere in my handbags storage boxes. It was made out of mother of pearl and had 3 huge golden studs in the middle. I wish I could easily access my stored stuff so I could take a photo of it for you to see, they're currently in a warehouse waiting for my big move. Anyhow, the designer had his brand new selection of clutches and handbags on display for one day in Kuwait. Made in Florence, the selection included various shapes and sizes from everyday handbags to intricately embroidered clutches for special occasions. And by the way, only recently I found out that Corto Moltedo is actually the son of Laura and Vittorio Moltedo, the Founders of mega fashion house Bottega Veneta. I sensed some of Corto's new designs were kind of inspired by Bottega's iconic clutches like the "Knot", luxurious handbags like the messenger bag, and the technique used in its colored exotic leathers. Just scroll down and you'll see what I mean.
