HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!
This canvas-and-leather Lancel shoulder bag may not immediately look like the most romantic satchel for miles – the bag is basic with a classic shape – but looks can be deceiving. What’s really making me swoon is the lovely message behind it.
This is a new interpretation of a model designed in the seventies, with a stitched design created by Salvador Dali. But this is no straightforward decorative pattern: it’s a hieroglyphic code Dali devised in order to share lovers’ secrets to his muse, Gala. I cannot imagine anything more romantic than having a secret language with your lover. On a bag, it’s the best kind of love letter I can imagine. It’s so much more eternal, not to mention more functional, than paper! Even if you don’t know what it says, let your imagination run wild and take part in their passionate story. Happy Valentine’s Day! On Luisa Via Roma for $715.
