Thinking about investing in a new bag? Well it may seem a little premature, but have a long hard think about winter, I mean it’s not that far really, is it. And this bag, the new investment, you’re going to want to wear it for longer than the last two summer months we have. You want this to be a forever bag, a seasonless bag, one you can grab no matter what the occasion. Well until you decide to sell it on Vestiaire that is.
While I haven’t really been out much this year like most people, I’ve still made a conscious effort to stick to routine and get dressed everyday, even packing a bag to take me from the bedroom to the living room/studio/office. I’ve noticed that I’ve been leaning towards my AW bags, the soft leathers in dark browns and greens. While I still love my basket bags, there’s nothing quite like a chic leather bag, one that’s so simple and effortless. And the mix of light linen dresses teamed with dense rich leathers has given my spring/summer wardrobe a new edge. The once fierce divide of AW/SS is now beginning to seem a little pointless almost, especially when we’ve spent so long at home not being able to show off our new purchases. The new mixing of all seasons seems fresh and more fashion conscious. Maybe we’re all moving into a new seasonless way of thinking, and I’m here for it!
So to those of you looking to invest in a new bag, think soft buttery leathers in rich colours. Make it a bag that can toughen up a linen dress but also work with your big boots and oversized coat when the big freeze comes back. This is clever shopping, when you find a piece that will work all year round, for years to comes.
Below is an edit of a few styles I think really work as seasonless pieces, all in leather so ready to last.
