A prime candidate for this season's "it" bag is the new Fiamma, from Salvatore Ferragamo designer Massimiliano Giornetti. Named after Ferragamo’s late daughter and inspired by the different generations of the famed Italian fashion house, the bag has distinctive semi-circular top-stitched handles, a pocket fastened with a lock that recalls the Gancio (the eternal symbol of Ferragamo’s history) and silk print linings from the 1970s.

It comes in three different sizes, a mix of leathers and exotic skins, and fall shades like cocoa and moss (brown and olive) in addition to black and plum. The handbags have just arrived in Ferragamo boutiques in Houston and Dallas, and the styles show in photos above range from $2,250 to $5,390.

The design house has also created a special collection of miniature styles in such materials as fringe embroidered nappa, two-tone fox fur hand stitched onto aged snakeskin and tweed with degrade Swarovski crystals held by lizard skin handles.
