Lambertson's and Truex co-operation was truly doing miracles design-wise and the world loved
the beautifully crafted small pouches and clutch bags from exotic materials made with the utmost attention to every detail. Unfortunately the handbag business founded in 1998 by John Truex and Richard Lambertson was done in 2009, when financial crisis hit hard the luxury fashion retailers. But every cloud has a silver lining. And the faith worked out well for these two talented designers, when Tiffany and Co purchased the brand in 2009.
Before that Lambertson Truex had also shoe line and they were producing small leather items, including wallets, belts or gloves. Lambertson Truex was really one of those few brands that delivered true luxury and elegance. The Lambertson Truex luxury leather items were beautifully designed and had all the required qualities to be among the iconic purses, such as the Birkin or 2.55 by Chanel.
Buying a bankrupted luxury bag brand was also risky for the Tiffany, but all worked out and fell into places after presentation of the first Tiffany bag collection. All the best characteristics of the Lambertson Truex were elegantly transferred in the beautiful Tiffany handbags. Impeccable is the word to describe every piece of their purses. Each of the bags have the traditional Tiffany blue color integrated in the design, for some purses, it is in the lock, for some the interior textile lining is made sky blue, but some bags are made themselves in the Tiffany blue shade.
The clutch bags and smaller size purses are the main highlights for the Tiffany bags collection right
now and the designers have done a great job, so we could expect soon that the Tiffany name is not only the synonym for jewelry but for great purses as well.
Larger purses in the new collection include the Brady tote and the reversible tote. The Brady tote is made in quilted leather. It has small studs in the quilted pattern and the hardware is the traditional palladium coated one.
The inside of the tote has two pockets and one zipped pocket as well. The handles are double chain. The size is 16.25 inches in width, 10.5 inches in height and the depth is 6.75 inches. The purse is available online for a price of 1,595 USD. Very elegant, sophisticated purse for an adequate price.
