Introducing the 2005 Spring Collection from Susan Fitch

Design by Susan Fitch


We've all heard the rules: When it comes to shopping for fashion, invest in good shoes and handbags and the rest of the wardrobe will fall in line. However, once chic shoppers get a glimpse of the 2005 Spring Collection from handbag designer Susan Fitch, the shoes will become secondary. With a first-class flock of loyal fans, this meticulous designer has been catering to the au courant crowds across the country for years, and was recently featured in Bill Blass' Spring 2004 runway show. Susan's dedication to seeking out the finest materials, precise attention to detail and a hint of edginess, is her recipe for success. The 2005 Spring Collection introduces six new styles, all named for refined fashion heroines, while three timeless styles get a fresh facelift. Susan's latest additions to her ravishing repertoire cover all areas of dress – from chic clutches for evening to sumptuous shoulder bags for daytime.

The Spring 2005 collection is a modish mixture of shimmering satins, sexy snakeskin, creamy calfskin and lush leather. With colors ranging from bold orange and attention-grabbing gold, to creamy camel and pearlized ivory - nothing is humdrum about these handbags. Color is a driving force behind Susan's designs. Each stylish sac-á-main is not only brilliant on the exterior but is just as plush on the interior. Every bag has a contrasting colored suede lining that cuddles wallets and embraces cellphones. Whether paired with jeans or formal attire, these handbags get noticed against any canvas. Susan taps the trends just enough to keep patrons happy, while managing to leave her own impression on a piece. Each bag is stamped with Susan's celebrated SF logo so clients know they are buying the best. Plush linings, nickel hardware and Italian frames add to the already stunning cuts, designs and luxurious fabrics. The craftsmanship on these bags is impeccable, the fabric opulent and the details unique, while the bags remain feminine and wearably chic.
