Afer the fall of the It Bag, the Anti-It-bag is welcomed like a breath of fresh air. Individuality and personal styling is honored above the cult status symbol that is copied from the catwalk to the celebs. For me, it is partly because owning 10 It Bag is just not economically feasible, and having a bag that so many other girls have just does not appeal to me.
Recently, I came across some gorgeous chain bags from Net-a-Porter and wanted to share them with you. Please tell me which one is your favourite.
Anya Hindmarch 3 pocket clutch. Great colours! I love the layered look and the soft luxurious leather. Chain bags are so good because you can hold it as a clutch or fling it across your shoulder. Where’s the bow logo Anya?
Chloe calfskin bucket bag. This is rock chick meets gallerina. Edgy enough for day and sparkly enough for night. You can toy with the tassels or admire the floral embellishments. This bag is a gem.
I adore this Celine lambskin bag. Not only it is made from the highest quality leather, it is in pink! I love the corrugated look with the big chain. I saw it at the shops recently, it is pretty heavy.
I had to add another Chloe chain bag- this one is simply stunning. I love the snake-skin trimming and the gold hardware. it’s named the ‘Irina’ bag, read here for a post about the cute model. I like the symmetry of this bag and it goes with everything.
How can I express my adoration for this black Emanuel Ungaro chain bag? Designers are embracing studs and the 80s grunge look is back with a vengeance! How cute is the lock buckle and the silver chains running circumferentially along the bag and the pockets?
I don’t think I have ever seen a non-psychedelic patterned garment or accessory from Emilio Pucci. But this denim and gold chain bag is so simple and chic. Anyone can sling it over their shoulders and epitomise Parisian style. Maybe the material lining the bag consists of multi-coloured swirls and shapes.
I can see Coco Chanel wearing this bag. I mean, Karl Lagerfeld designs fro both Fendi and Chanel and don’t you think that he may have crossed styles with this bag? So if you are a fan of both design houses, then invest in this bag, it is like 2 labels in one! I love nude and black, it is the most feminine combination and the chains lends an edge to this beautiful baguette.
Guess who is bag is by? I know what you are thinking, I was thinking it too. It’s by Alber Elbaz, this gold beauty is Lanvin! I love the colour and the black bow intertwined in the gold chain. What a beauty.
These bags are just divine, pick one for your lust-list today. Thanks for reading.
