A good print always catches the eye, but that’s not the real eye-grabber here. The initial shocker is that this is a Sophie Hulme bag, sans her signature exaggerated hardware. While there may not be a studded or screwed-on metal plaque to be found, it’s still not without her personal touch. The simple, seemingly unburdened flap is accompanied by a slim metal bar across the top, complete with little screws, so this satchel is still in keeping with the branding message.
The brand is also revealing their wisdom: a bold print like this doesn’t need much else going on. When it comes to this tiny crossbody, everything is in the right place, with the right proportions. It functions like a wallet with card slots and a center zipper, and it’s a slim size but still big enough for the iPhone 6 Plus – which is starting to irritate me because it doesn’t fit in many of my clutches! I suppose Sophie has the same phone. Whether you have the jumbo 6 or not, this is just the pop of fun you need for spring…if it ever arrives. On Farfetch for $524.43.
Pair with: Toss in a second very discreet print and you have an instant bona fide “look.” Diane von Furstenberg strikes the right note of subtlety with her Heather pumps. On MATCHESFASHION.com for $375.
