The Royal Treatment

You spent a semester abroad in Italy. But instead of the intricacies of the language, you learned the, ahem, ins and outs of a ragazzo named Fabrizio.

During her own stints in Milan, Florence, and Tuscany, Miami-based designer Celeste Miller picked up more than love lessons. She studied the country’s time-tested, traditional techniques for making fine leather accessories.

Her new line of vintage-inspired handbags, Royal & Rolande, puts all that knowledge to good use. Crafted from exotic materials like eel and lizard, the rich-hued clutches, satchels, and hobos have a classic European elegance (and classic European prices).

You can customize the bags with a monogrammed plate at the clasp, for an added old-world touch.

Sure to make you feel nostalgic.
