Pick your St. Patrick's Day Green Bag!

March 13, 2009

What we're attracted to this March for St. Patty holiday bags are purses that bring us back to the nature side of green. Whether it's the four-sided shape reminiscent of the leafed clover in the Tory Burch; a woven natural look meets a woodsy brown by Bottega Veneta; droplets like leaves for Coccinelle; or even a near-floral like droplet shape in the McQueen to a croc-reminiscent by Nine & Co. Other standout bags is our favorite in Prada's gemmed-up (emerald?) Tessuto Pietre clutch---the perfect size for the bling, to the largest clutch we've just plain seen by Lost, and then a big budding (no pun intended, or is it?) trend of the cross-body, this time meets the one-sided-strapped wristlet; so interesting and adorable by Fendi. We personally couldn't decide what to carry. So little St. Patrick's Day, so many bags!

Bag This Trend: Fishnet CrossOver Fashion

March 09, 2009


Linen Shopper
$265.00 at DKNY

Large linen shopper with fishnet pockets, buckle detail
and leather trim. Dual carrying handles. Logo lined interior
with center zip compartment. Gold hardware.
Dimensions: 15" wide x 11" high x 6.5" deep. Handle drop: 8".

Not usually beyond stocking, and still not on many bags being sold, but a trend crossing over is fishnet material.

We're not sure if we'll see this in many more bags, but a purchase in this category could make a gal "fit in" with the other ladies with different accessories, yet stand out at the same time.

We like this trend, and it reminds us of that Marc Jacobs clutch with the netting-material bow. So cute.

What's cutest about this tote by DKNY? Above the fishnet pocket is a belt---kind of like garter and stocking?

The Mulberry 'Shimmy' Collection

March 09, 2009

The "Shimmy" Collection by Mulberry boasts a dog-like-tag in different shapes of neutral colors. The best is by far the quilted leather version. We've never seen such divinely patterned leather!

Trend: Long-Shoulder bags with Chain Strap twist

March 07, 2009
Long chain shoulder straps are in. (Moi has even considered crafting one when I'm finished moving house and have my sewing machine set up again [I hope next week!] And when I'm feeling a trend early on, it's always huge. ;-) ) I know they can be uncomfortable (note to my designing self, improve upon!) but they are classy and classic. Take it from one of the most iconic and famous (and carried, despite its expense) bags of all time; the Chanel Flap. This season even the flap's strap doubled-up is extra long!

This is going to be a huge trend, don't especially if Karl Lagerfeld has any say.
