IF WE WERE A BAG THIS SEASON, WE’D BE…
Hey there Pretty Birds,
We are so excited about all the gorgeous bags that are coming out for Spring Summer 2014. Biker inspired handbags, embellished clutches, pop hued messenger bags… The selection is just too good to be true. The other day at the ATPB headquarters we started to think about which little beauty we’d go for, when all of a sudden Tamu exclaimed “If I were a bag this season, I’d be Kotur’s flower embellished clutch because it makes me happy and I’m ready to plan my Spring garden!” This brilliant exclamation got us all thinking about which bag we’d like to be too. Be it the new bold and rock n’ roll Saint Laurent bucket bag, or Fendi’s super cute owl baguette bag in mink and fox fur, here is a gallery with all our favorite picks and why we’d go for them. What about you beautiful people? Which bag would you be this new season, and why? Let us know!
3.1 Phillip Lim small drawstring cross body bag– because I love the splashes of black paint and anything that resembles the artist Jackson Pollock’s drippings.
Kotur floral appliqué elaphe clutch – because it makes me happy and I’m ready to plan my Spring garden!
Sara Battaglia Theresa ponyskin and leather shoulder bag – I’m a sucker for anything multi-media, I thrive on multi sensorial experiences and over stimulation. Color, texture, fringes, more is more… and I’ll take it all!
Pierre Hardy tri-color leather shoulder bag – I’m loooouving the color block plus contrast piping situation here. It’s like I’m on a groovy psychedelic trip but safely contained within sleek black borders.
Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane bucket leather tote with zippers – because I’m in love with Hedi Slimane and everything he does is so rock n’ roll.
Alexander Wang Rockie studded leather tote – I love this bag’s name and its shiny finish.
Anya Hindmarch printed fabric bag – because I’ve always wanted to be a space-cowboy.
Miu Miu matelassé leather bag – because I’m an apparent good girl, but I have a biker girl leather-clad soul.
Charlotte Olympia Cherry on Top perspex clutch – because I’m your ch ch ch ch cherry bomb!
Valentino Va Va Voom crystal embellished shoulder bag – because I’m a tough-skin but soft-heart kind of girl.
Olympia Le-Tan Manners for Men embroidered clutch – because it’s never too late to learn.
Fendi owl baguette shoulder bag with mink and fox fur – if owls brings bad luck, Fendi’s fur ones surely don’t!
Proenza Schouler PS11 leather clutch – because I love its fierce buckle closure… who said that purple brings bad luck?
Victoria Beckham orange leather bag – I’m totally obsessed with Posh Spice, and this bag’s pop-orange tone just makes me go “WOW”.
Givenchy Antigona confetti print clutch – because it puts me in a party mood, even if I’m in the office.
Kenzo Kalifornia medium leather shoulder bag – because it’s the only thing I’d bring with me, on a motor-cycle road trip.
