Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

A closer look at Avon's Manzzini bags

Avon makes interesting bags, but the Manzzini Collection is way past interesting. It's gorgeous! So wait, why is the collection called Manzzini? "The name Manzzini was derived from Via Mazzini, a fashion street in Italy reflecting the designs of the collection. This bag line takes inspiration from a Manzzini woman who travels around the world - as she eats, shops and loves," says Avon.

They're more expensive since they're a special collection, but I do believe the price is worth it. I like that the bags have a sort of detachable organizer inside for your stuff (at least, the black one does, I haven't used the cream yet) and that they're very of-the-moment. The material used doesn't feel cheap at all too!

Here are a few photos of the bags in actual.

Manzzini Tote with Mini Purse

Size: 33L X 12.5GW X 25H CM

Available Colors: Black

Price:  P1,650

This is my favorite out of the two. It's sexy and mysterious, perfect for darker outfits and high heels. This is my current bag and I love it! Just two things: the inside is black so it's hard to look for my stuff and the zipper can be tough to close sometimes, but otherwise it's a great bag.

Manzzini Expandable Tote

Size:  43L x 30H x 15GW CM

Available Colors:Beige

Price: P1,650

And this is the crowd favorite. :D I put up a little survey over at my Facebook page and people voted this as their top pick between the two. I can see the appeal - it's charming and girly, perfect for everyday use with casual outfits. It's also conveniently big when needed since it's expandable. A laptop can fit inside comfortably.

And that's it! What do you think of the bags? They will be available through Avon Ladies nationwide starting December 2011. Don’t have an Avon Lady yet? Log on to www.avon.com.ph to find out how to contact an Avon Representative.
