The Foundation Of A Good Bag Collection


A query I get requested usually, is just this: ‘I’m pondering of beginning a correct bag assortment, however apart from all of the runway/seasonal choices on the market, what are the fundamentals/classics I ought to contemplate? Bags which are slightly bit quirky/particular, bags that I can use again and again and most significantly bags that received’t look misplaced in my wardrobe over time.’ Well, right here’s your reply.


For starters, you’ll need items which are classic-looking, however with a twist. Take for instance Victoria Beckham’s Vanity Mini Leather Tote (USD2118). Inspired by the salaryman’s suitcase, think about it shrunken right into a 21 cm by 15.5 cm structured physique that’s completed with a prime deal with. Detailed with a gold-tone clasp and a mirror on the within (you understand, for emergency touch-ups), you should utilize it as it’s (clear and minimal) or go loopy and jazz it up. Wrap a skinny silk twill across the deal with, add a bag attraction, you understand what I imply.

Colour is one thing else you might contemplate, and whereas your whites/black/greys are good, they will get a tad boring over time. My recommendation? Go for vivid colors however nothing hideous like fluorescent lime inexperienced. Think wealthy browns, soothing greens, even brights like crimson. And if you happen to’re in search of one in that color, listed here are two to select from. First up, the Cube from The Volon (USD860). As the identify suggests, the cute boxy bag with a prime deal with is nearly cube-like. Also comes with its personal shoulder sling, which is an added bonus.

Then there’s Roksanda Illincic’s Besa (USD1032), one other uniquely formed bag that additionally has a single prime deal with. Measuring some 18 cm by 15 cm, not solely is the leather-based sling’s wavy sample visually fascinating, that is one other bag that’s destined to be a traditional in years to come back.

Last, however not at all least, right here’s one thing for the diehard hipster in you. Yes, I’m speaking about Cult Gaia, but when the all-bamboo model has change into too ‘influencer’ for you, how concerning the one in acrylic? Yes, there’s a full jet-black one and it’s nonetheless fairly inexpensive as properly, priced at simply over USD207.

So, there you will have it. Classic attractiveness, impressed shapes, vivid colors and even that one thing quirky for the hipster in you, all of that are classics-in-the-making that can kind an important basis on your bag assortment.
