Del Duca, the Argentinian accessories label responsible for fashion's accessory du jour

We've waxed lyrical on the to-the-minute fashion digest Instagram has become and henceforth, we'll be dispensing the long story short. Want to know which up-and-coming designers are on the cusp of mainstream success? Go on, follow these buyers for the first word. Feel like you might've bypassed some key fashion 'grams throughout the week? Hit up our 'ICYMI' series.

And if like us, a case of serious bag envy plagues you today born of Irene Kim's morning OOTD on IG, then meet Del Duca, the antidote. 


While the Argentinian accessories label may not necessarily be the purveyor of Kim's exact arm candy, it specialises in beaded bags of the same aesthetic family, and commands a following of other fashion insiders the likes of Natalie Joos and Georgiana Boboc. It's not hard to see why; these colourful creations handmade in Buenos Aires are of a craft technique that's over half a century old, and requires up to 20 hours for the completion of a single piece. 


Founded by Mariana Diaz in 2006, Del Duca has been known to serve up a myriad of flat and boxy clutches in the past, but a more modern and directional move has given rise to a range of top handles, bucket bags and adorable totes in its signature, kitschy beading.
