Testing 'Vivace' On The Streets of Venice
What is about handbags that women love so much? Is it the design or fashion statement of them? Is it the functionality or the ability to bring more with you? Or is simply a calling to accessorize your life and add some creativity to your daily routine? May we suggest that it is all of these things and potentially even more?
As a handbag company, we take all of these criteria into account when designing a product that will serve the most function and also the most fashion... So we decided to take one of our best sellers, the Vivace crossbody bag, out on the streets of Venice for an entire day. What would we encounter? What would we need? How functional was the Vivace when we needed to "use it" during the course of our journey?
Comfortable To Carry
You should try on the handbag and take notice to whether it pushes on your arm in an uncomfortable way. How does it fit your body? Does it slide off your shoulder too easily or do you feel forced to carry it by the handles? You can fall in love with the look of a particular handbag or even spend quite a bit on a major luxury brand, but if it doesn't have the right kind of comfort for carrying around then you may start to regret your purchase.
Not Too Heavy
You can tell when someone is carrying a high quality leather product because it wears beautifully over time. Your handbag will also get scratched, nicked, even torn in some cases depending how heavily you use it. Most fine leather handbags can be touched up, repaired, and cleaned really well.
Pockets & Storage
In our case, we took our Vivace crossbody bag into the streets of Venice. Vivace offers a pocket on the rear of the bag that stays closed with a magnetic lock, making it easily accessible for cards, receipts, a container of breath mints, etc. Inside, you'll find a zippered pocket where you might carry change, cash, trinkets, perhaps earrings, a necklace or a ring that you had to take off for the day. In the front of the bag, there's a nice pouch that can fit the largest iPhones but also be a great spots for car keys and other items that need to be quickly accessed.
You can tackle of these essentials for the day with the Endrizzi Vivace, including lipstick, sunglasses and more in a neatly designed space that all weighs about 1 pound.
- Casual glamour to go with your daily work attire
- A soft enough look to also pair well with your casual dress or comfy looks.
- Neutral or classic in color so that it blends with the color palette of your various choices.
- Versatile in its design to change the way it can be worn.
The Vivace is a unique handbag that can change its style to adapt to many different looks. It can be worn as a crossbody bag one day, and then you can shorten the chain straps and wear it as a hobo bag the next day. Or in the case of our day-trip through Venice, it was a nice switch-up after 6 hours of walking.
If you're like us, then you want form AND function vs having one over the other. There are just too many options out there to not create a handbag that looks great but also gets the job done when put to the test of being a daily workhorse.
Color can be your superstar when considering handbag options that have storage and security as top-of-mind features. If you've got all the enclosures, zippers and magnetic flaps that you need, then make the bag color the superstar. Purchase the bag that rocks 70% of your outfits.
Design details can also help you stand out from the crowd. Our Vivace is also a head-turner in its silver color option. High quality vegetable tanned leather in sparkling silver make this handbag the highlight of any entrance - especially during the holidays.
