Sometimes you need a large bag, thanks to daily life’s demands, but you never want a big carryall to read as a monstrosity (as in, a big blob of leather that engulfs your whole body). Marni’s Pod bag perfectly addresses that issue.
This simple envelope-style bag by Marni piqued my interest when it was plain and unadorned, and now it’s been turned up to another level. With the addition of gorgeous floral python appliqués, it’s beyond and I can’t get enough.
This season, Marni is wisely offering the look of woven rattan for summer, without any of the prickly maintenance that comes with it.
Nautical by nature, stripes are always a sign of warm weather, but those that feature the colors of the rainbow are the ones that turn up the heat. Casual days are instantly uplifted with colorful stripes, while black and white are too stark to bring high energy.
Here’s a prime example of the Marni conundrum: this oversized leather clutch that hangs over the shoulder is very directional – and that’s part of the appeal – but it’s almost too much so.
Those with weak ankles, rejoice! And pretty much all of us can enjoy a break from sky-high stilettos. Because it’s all about the chunky heel right now. When working a heel with some heft, it’s important the shoe have some feminine details. Otherwise, the look gets trashy way too quickly.
