Derek Lam’s new bag, the Lindsay Grande in nude grain calf leather is simple and elegant for the girls who want a bag to last beyond this season. The side straps will extend to make more room for days when you feel the need to expand the bag capacity but I imagine it will just look sloppy. I like the way it looks gathered up, it gives this almost too plain bag some interest. Padded shoulder straps will expand from 7 – 10 inch drop with multiple interior pockets and single outer pocket. This is a huge departure from the heavy Ram hardware his bags are known for, being named the Creative Director of Tod’s certainly has been a positive influence! After a rocky first few seasons, I think Derek Lam has finally found his true vision as a bag designer. Derek Lam Lindsay Grande Bauletto Bag, Nude- $1,750 at eLuxury. What do you think?
