Fashion: Ferragamo launches signature Fiamma bag

(Continued)

That, of course, doesn't mean just one. Minton herself has many favorites in her collection, including a Birkin bag and a Gucci bag that her mother bought her in Italy a decade ago and a Goyard tote bag -- which she said now would be out of her price range. "Luckily for me, when I bought my iconic bags, things were not as crazy as they are now."

Accessories have proven themselves recession-resistant, and the economic traction they give fashion houses is making it even more critical for bands to develop an iconic bag, one that "can stand as a brand's flagship item," according to Ginger Reeder of Neiman Marcus.

With sales of leather goods the fastest-growing in the luxury sector, there is enough room for every house to have an iconic bag, "and most do," Reeder said. Global sales of leather goods, excluding footwear, reached 36 billion euros last year, nearly one-third of all luxury sales, according to a study by Bain & Partners.

Ferragamo underlined the intergenerational aspirations for the bag, reflecting the company's three generational family history, with an on-line short film project featuring mother-daughter pairings from iconic families, including Mariel Hemingway and her daughter Langley Hemingway Fox.

Mariel Hemingway says she appreciates how fashion helps boost her confidence when she appears in front of big groups -- something that hit home when she kept receiving compliments from strangers for a pair of Ferragamo two-tone sandals at a decidedly non-fashion event, a Washington, D.C. gathering on mental health issues, something Hemingway has been working on.

"The point of fashion is not for people to walk the red carpet. It is so people can live their lives looking fashionable, stylish and beautiful in any realm they work in, " Hemingway said.

i have the mini. i like mini bags in black simple min slightly round.

i have a men's wallet and i never really want to carry too much i am not the girl with the brief case back. i am the girl who takes chapstick wallet and my phone.

it is silly bec the amount of things you dont actually use in your bag.
