Miu Miu Madras Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag: Fly Off the Handlehttp://www.snobessentials.com/2015/06/miu-miu-madras-textured-leather-shoulder-bag-fly-off-the-handle.html http://www.snobessentials.com/2015/06/miu-miu-madras-textured-leather-shoulder-bag-fly-off-the-handle.html#comments Tue, 30 Jun 2015 18:00:49 +0000 http://www.snobessentials.com/?p=75220

Especially as we look ahead to the fall season, which always calls for more polish and structure. But back to that handle! Attached with delicate yet geometric metal hardware, it sets an otherwise (somewhat) classical bag off with just enough quirkiness. An accordion-style shape gives way to three spacious compartments, and you can attach an optional shoulder strap when you feel the need.

Prada Saffiano Print Lips Satchel and Lipstick Shoulder Bags: Loud Mouthshttp://www.snobessentials.com/2015/06/prada-saffiano-print-lips-satchel-and-lipstick-shoulder-bags-loud-mouths.html http://www.snobessentials.com/2015/06/prada-saffiano-print-lips-satchel-and-lipstick-shoulder-bags-loud-mouths.html#comments Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:00:14 +0000 http://www.snobessentials.com/?p=75176

Irreverent? Absolutely. Exciting? Yes, indeed. Unexpected? Well, that’s almost always to be expected from Miuccia. With a respective abstract print and floral motif, the Lips satchel and Lipstick shoulder bag, equally colorful and frisky, might bring to mind pieces of modern American Pop art from the mid-1950s. They’re already as instantly recognizable as some of those icon-inspired works of art; actually, they might rapidly reach some small-scale “icon” status of their own.

A brightly-hued bag, especially one that breaks the rules of what supposedly clashes and matches, is like an instant shot of energy. And we all need a little bit of extra energy, don’t we? Take a dose, and the rest of your wardrobe will thank you – these bright bags make all the statement you need.

We may not all have the jet-set lifestyle of supermodels, but we can have their bags! In fact, our Drew tote was inspired by the women who rule the catwalks. The one catch? We didn’t design it based on the inaccessibly-priced, for-show-only runway pieces these women carry at work.
