The handbags created by Astore tell a story of passion and of Italian handicraft knowledge.
Made in natural leather tanned with traditional craftsmanship and hand-painted with an exclusive lively pattern, the original Watercolor bag can be coordinated with footwear, wallets, belts and other accessories. Venetian artisans hand paint each item and subtle variations will occur from piece to piece together with possible brush drippings that con rm that the item is handmade.


A dreamy watercolour. That’s Astore’s “Made in Italy”.

Fashion trends from this issue
A bucket for every season: the most popular model of the last seasons makes an appearance and enchants, also in a “mini” version.
Fabulous, playful, and fascinating, clutches are the prima donna of bags, often unique pieces that attract the attention due to the quality of the materials and the distinctive details. Also sporting a touch of irony, models with pop-art prints and studded decorations.
The watchword is flowers, flowers and more flowers, Among the realistic and abstract patterns just mentioned, the romanticism of the floral print dominates. There is no shortage of applications and 3D decorations.
A journey through the different hues of passion, a brand-new entry in the colours for next summer, able to make even the most classic models unique.
