Patrizia Pepe Capsule Collections The countdown to Christmas, or should we say to our Christmas shopping, has started! This is not just the time of year when we’re all nicer, kinder and more caring, it’s also (maybe even more importantly) a time of presents. There’s nothing to beat the excitement of opening a parcel, the rush to rip the paper off and the sheer glee that is directly proportional to what we find inside the colour paper and ribbons. … Getting presents makes us happy and gives a real ego boost when we think about all the thought that must have gone into picking it. The Store has put accessories in the spotlight this season, along with the Patrizia Pepe Capsule Collections:�Patty Office,�T-Bag and Patty Vintage. And there’s a surprise in store for you if you buy something from the last two ranges: The Store will send it for free until 21 November. It’s fun looking for that special something to bring a smile to the face of a special friend. Could there be anything nicer than receiving an accessory or funky, stylish t-shirt? Patrizia Pepe‘s Patty Vintage clutches are a fusion of distinctive 1940’s classy dressing and statement packaging. Nothing is overlooked in terms of details, from the colour palette to the Patrizia Pepe logo lining, and they can be worn in two ways: over the shoulder or as a strapless purse (the strap can be removed). There are three options in the Capsule Collection: the first clutch combines the preppy look of the clasp with some flirty lace. The second clutch is the emblem of everything vintage in the collection, the antique rose eco-leather sits adorably with the mother-of-pearl clasp detail. The third option is the mother-of-pearl effect PVC purse that has a distinctly retro feel, embellished with a Swarovski diamante clasp. Another original gift idea is the T-Bag: a t-shirt starring all the latest it-bags in the Women’s Collection. The chain with Patrizia Pepe logo medals across this stretch viscose jersey maxi t-shirt represents the strap of the handbag printed on the front. The quirky, fun-loving t-bag is perfect with a pair of leggings or jeggings. The stand-out feature is the shopping bag that the t-shirt comes in. A truly timeless object is the Patty Office 2011 diary featuring the celebrity Patty Ballerina printed on a black background with a magenta stripe and Patrizia Pepe logo pages. This crisp, stylish diary makes a very useful gift to make a note of work commitments, drinks with friends or a wild day out at the shops.
