Known for its discreet yet ultra-luxurious pieces, Loro Piana has released two handbags for the autumn. In keeping with the label's classic aesthetic, the understated bags are made with materials such as smooth calfskin and python skin. The sleek Draycott (above; HK$24,600) is crafted out of French calfskin, with a small pocket on the front and a snap fastening. For something more decadent, opt for My Long Bag (top; HK$59,700), which requires the skins of two diamond pythons to make. The long calfskin handles provide a smooth grip. Both bags are available at all Loro Piana stores, including shop 2046, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7398.
