Whether you call it the statement bag or the embellished bag, just don’t call it boring! The spring 2016 season’s new “it” bag consists of a broad swept personality that is anything but mundane. With a range of everything from Dolce and Gabanna’s flower embroidered theme to the Lego inspired motif that is the subject of Le Petits Joueurs’ Alex Mini Geometry Crossbody Bag, vibrancy and imaginative intention are the key in this instance. Although black will always remain a pure staple, allowing for some color and a whimsical treat with these intricately sculpted bags are a playful and delightful deterrent from the norm.
As a virtually conceived wearable form of art, these bags and their small leather counterparts compose an idea that form and function need not exist without beauty and charm.
Their message conveys a nod to nature and fanciful ladylike gestures with Gucci’s ribbon detail on the Sylvie Grosgrain Striped shoulder bag and artful floral and butterfly applique’s donned by the Dionysus Butterfly GG Supreme Canvas Shoulder bag. And I was pleasantly surprised when I found myself attracted to a muted orange Karl Lagerfeld day shopper with a mini Karl Robot tag charm attached. I’m usually enticed by the more neutral color scheme of black, cream, putty or slate grey. But there was actually an instant gravity pull towards the likes of this bag. I was beside myself for all of thirty seconds before deciding it would be my spring/summer bag. My clothing mostly consists of the neutral palette so this will be that extra pop of color needed to feel refreshed and alive. Here are a few of the new digs on the block. With a varietal aspect of shapes, themes and price points there’s bound to be one that tugs at your heartstrings. Snatch one up if you dare.Wishing you Love and Luxury!
