Handbag trends these days tend to point toward the micro-sized, studded, or oddly shaped category. And as much as we’d love to pull out the craziest bag in our closet, many situations call for an understated and elegant option. This shouldn’t mean, however, that we should merely settle for another dull style in leather.

Known for its balance of tradition and modernity, Ferragamo is making the case for the sophisticated and fun bag with its newest design, the Sofia Rainbow. The bag is an updated version of the Sofia which was released in its spring/summer 2009 collection. The latest release combines the iconic design of the Florentine maison’s best-seller bag and mixes it with a modern and feminine flair.

The Sofia Rainbow retains the classic Gancini hardware, flip-lock mechanism, top handle, and detachable shoulder strap. Opening the bag reveals the added design of an internal pocket with rainbow-colored gussets. This gives an unexpected edge to the elegant bag while keeping it suitable for any occasion.

The fun and vivid pop of color references one of the brand’s most iconic designs: the legendary Rainbow sandal, a five-inch platform shoe made for Judy Garland. The bag is available in two sizes, small and medium, in an array of colors such as bonbon, rhododendron, pale blue, opal, lilac, and jasmine. You can choose from calfskin leather or glossy Elaphe snakeskin.

The classic Italian craftsmanship is evident in the construction of the Sofia Rainbow. Framing the bag is an embossed border which runs from the back to the bottom, while the gussets add an internal and external feature that enhances the profile of the bag. The colored lining is also a test of skills as it is glued, stitched, and applied as a single piece.

The Sofia Rainbow is available at Salvatore Ferragamo stores and online at ferragamo.com.

Salvatore Ferragamo is located at Greenbelt 4, Rustan’s Shangri-La, Rustan’s Makati, Newport Mall, and Solaire Resort & Casino.
