Leave it to Alexander Wang to rethink and revamp the way a frame bag should look. I love the level of ingenuity and original design at play. The silver bar looks crazy-modern, while Balenciaga’s bicycle-inspired theme continues, with a polished roller chain…
There’s a lot going on here. Actually, this bag sports almost every trend of the season, from blocked stripes to combined neutrals to mixed textures to bold piping. Yet Proenza Schouler somehow makes it all work.
Flower crown? Check. Fringed and embellished suede vest? Check. Something crocheted, cropped, or both? Check. So what’s missing?
This season, Marni is wisely offering the look of woven rattan for summer, without any of the prickly maintenance that comes with it.
Raffia weaves and nautical stripes, look out!
Some bags manage to strike their own version of perfection, one that simply can’t be denied. Like Valextra’s Manzoni shoulder bag: it’s simple and chic, countered with an unpretentious dose of intrigue we all want in everything we wear.
