Designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, founders of the aspirational couture label Marchesa, know exactly how to bring out a woman's inner goddess: with whispery ruffles, flounces of mermaid tulle, and intricately embroidered bodices. Launched in 2004, Marchesa specializes in high-end eveningwear and bridal gowns that are ultra-feminine yet true to the bold spirit of their muse and namesake, the eccentric European style icon Marchesa Luisa Casati. To make your red-carpet evenings perfect, Marchesa offers a line of evening bags every bit as elaborate and luxurious as its stunning dresses. White crocodile shoulder bags, vintage-inspired Swarovski crystal-beaded clutches, handsome ostrich frame bags, and other styles feature details such as irregularly cut stones and mother-of-pearl accents. Fine craftsmanship and precision detailing make Marchesa handbags more than purses — they're works of art.
