Review: Diana (by Anne)
Updated: Sep 20, 2020
I would love to tell you all about my fourth Massaccesi handbag: the Diane. First of all some information about Marco and his Massaccesi brand.
I really adore Massaccesi handbags. Marco is the owner and designer at the workshop in Italy. He offers his customers a unique bespoke experience, creating a personal relationship with us to ensure that we receive a beautiful handbag that works for our lifestyle at a sensible price level.
It works like this: we are invited to choose from a large range of practical, versatile and gorgeous handbags. They vary from large totes and hobos, to elegant top handle handbags, to classy clutches and practical pouches - there is a design for every lifestyle! We then select the type of leather and have a wonderful choice of colours from neutrals to pastels to brights. High quality hardware selections are available in silver, light gold, light gunmetal and dark gunmetal - these are also aesthetically pleasing. Marco also offers a choice of linings: fabric in a range of gorgeous colours, or lambskin. Finally, we are also able to add or adjust features such as slip pockets or handles, for a small extra cost.
The handbag arrives in a dust bag with a personalised label. From the moment the bag is revealed, you can see the high quality workmanship: beautifully chosen and matched leathers, exquisite stitching and attention to detail, leather edged slip pockets, practical touches and smoothly moving zips. Also, having owned and worn Massaccesi handbags for a number of years, I can honestly say that these bags last.
Customer service is excellent all the way through the process and beyond. Marco and his staff work hard to ensure that we, his clients, are happy and satisfied with his products and any issues are sorted out as quickly as possible, in my experience.
Well, I hope that has given you some useful background information. Now to the Diane...
