Tina Craig for Gianfranco Lotti Mini OTTO bag 

I am most definitely biased but how adorable is the mini Otto bag from the Tina Craig for Gianfranco Lotti collection? It is inspired by happy childhood memories and now evokes dreams of upcoming summer holidays (am I wrong to favor June-July-August?!). Handcrafted in Scandicci Italy, right outside of my beloved Florence– it is the epitome of Italian craftsmanship. The colorful side-panel is made of hand rendered seagulls and sunsets on hand cut calfskin. The quality is meticulous yet the design is whimsical and lighthearted. Everything you wanted in a bag you say? Yes, I agree! It comes with a wristlet strap and a long crossbody but I also love it with our fun bag straps! You simply can not go wrong.

So many of you have asked why I named it OTTO. Otto is Italian for the number eight– the bag has eight sides, eight is my birth month as well as the luckiest number in the Chinese culture. So you see, this bag will bring you luck every time you carry it! Not to mention it will make you smile 🙂

The Mini Otto is available in two colors for Spring/Summer 2017 and is exclusively at Net-a-porter.

Wear it with: Seagull leather paneled strap
