Embrace your inner pop artist with these new pooch-painted totes by Gabs, an Italian luxury handbag brand making its Sarasota debut appearance at Italian Idea on Pineapple Avenue. Along with sporting a non-traditional polka-dot print and pup-coated design, these bags convert into three different shapes, making the Gabs G3 a versatile and functional handbag appealing to anyone looking for a bold addition to their closet. Made in Italy from genuine fine leather, the G3 can change from a simple messenger to a stand-alone evening tote with the punch of a few buckle snaps located on the sides and bottom of each purse. Every G3 also comes with a matching shoulder strap and reusable grocery bag for additional practicality and methods of wear. Each purse from the “Gabs Loves Animals” collection features a different polka dot palette and dog breed wrapped around the fine leather, including golden retrievers, dachshunds, pugs and french bulldogs.

Italian Idea is one of only six exclusive merchants to carry Gabs handbags in the US. Prices range from $205–$234.
