I can safely say I have never been in love with a Longchamp bag before. Of course, we all have at least one foldup Le Pliage for travel (and the shopping sprees that come with your trip), but we don’t carry it because we love it. It’s all function and no fun.
Trust the young ladies of The Row to offer a true twist on the time-tested weave theme. The way this shopper’s tiles are stitched and woven is more similar to the way metal plates are attached, rather than plain, old interlocked bands of leather.
Bags are beginning to blur together. Perhaps that’s why I’m currently so attracted to bags like the insect Damien Hirst for Prada Entomology bag. These days, it takes a lot to stand out, even for designers with a wealth of creativity. Take Stella McCartney, for example.
Givenchy’s Lucrezia bag is a current classic for modern snobs who aren’t afraid of a little edge or to take a risk. While we’re used to seeing it in color or alligator-stamped texture, the latest edition just reinforces the fact that Givenchy isn’t afraid of a lot of edge.
There are days when it’s all about the bag. You take out your wardrobe’s best and enjoy putting forth the energy to baby it with precious treatment. And then there are those days when life gets in the way and you’re too busy to worry about taking care of an investment piece while you go about your business.
