Halloween is so last month. And yet, you've still got candy on the brain.

Twix. Almond Joy. M&Ms. Emporio Armani...

Yeah, we should probably explain that last one.

Introducing Emporio Armani's new Hawaii-exclusive handbags - eye-popping, candy-colored confections available now at Ala Moana Center.

First, a little backstory. Emporio Armani debuted its first round of Hawaii-exclusive men's accessories last year. It was so well-received, the luxury line decided to add a women's collection, working closely with its Hawaii-based team to perfect every detail.

Every handbag features an engraved logo bow detail and Hawaii-exclusive plaque.

The initial delivery, a clutch and handbag in burnt orange or bubblegum pink, is quite a treat. You'll melt for its buttery soft lamb leather, pintucked and hand-stitched into delicately puffed pleats. Swoon over the feminine bow detail with engraved logo and exclusive Hawaii 2012 plaque showcasing the Hawaiian island chain. Delight in its detachable shoulder strap for extra versatility.

Naturally, you'll be left craving more. It's a good thing additional styles, including a cosmetics pouch and wallet, are on the way.

Consider this a sweet addition to your closet.

And an indulgence you won't get sick of.

$495 clutch, $1,145 handbag, available at Emporio Armani, Ala Moana Center. For more information, call (808) 951-8475.
