10 Must-Have Bags to Own...Which is your favourite?Hi everyone. Another busy week and finally having a few mins downtime before my schedule catches up with me again.
Doing fashion posts has been fun and I know I have a few more tips up my sleeve to present to you however I decided to highlight in this post the top IT bags of 2012 which are my personal favourites and to help you decide on making that all important buy.
|Kate Spade Satchel|
|1. Cambridge Satchel |
The Cambridge satchel has won us over with its simplicity in design and functionality.
Throughout summer it added that pop of colour and jazz to our outfits which we love
so much. Several versions of this style of bag made it to the SS 2012 collections of
major designers e.g Prada, Kate Spade etc.
|2. The Celine Mini Luggage|
My personal favourite - The Celine Mini Luggage which is of a reasonable size to use
for several occasions and also in its myriad of colours to choose from makes it a popular
bag for most of us. Classy and cute with it's " Smiley" face, the fact that there is many
inspired versions out there in the stores says it all.
|3. Celine Trapeze Bag|
This year has been a good year for Celine, releasing 2 popular IT bags this
Spring/ Summer 2012 season. Besides the Mini Luggage, the other much
coveted bag is the Trapeze for its cute design and yet spacious enough for
daily use. Again the play of mix and match colours make this an interesting bag to own.
|4. Zara Plaited Shopper Bag|
The ZARA plaited shopper bag is our next best bet for those especially on a slightly
tighter budget and yet need a functional, classy but pocket friendly designer bag.
The plaited detailing on the carry strap adds that twist of chic-ness to an otherwise plain
looking bag. The beautiful colours it comes in has made it a sought after bag this season.
|5. Louis Vuitton Jelly Basket|
Louis Vuitton did something different this season with the patent leather version
of a plastic shopping basket. This bag has both the fabulous AND fun factor.
|6. Versace Stud Bag|
This VERSACE bag has a hint of Balenciaga with the stud embellishments and
perhaps overdoing it a tad, but alluring in its own way. Rebel Chic!
|7. Alexander Wang Rocco Duffle Bag|
I first came across this Alexander Wang bag on a celebrity blog site and fell
in love with it immediately. It's simple and classic design was up an edge with
the studs at the base. Celebrities all over Hollywood are digging this bag ( as
seen above on Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Tisdale). This bag wins 2 thumbs
up from me.
|8. Gucci 1970 Bag|
The Gucci 1970 is another must-have bag for 2012. With metallic caps coming to
the forefront in fashion e.g metal capped collars, toe capped heels... now this graphic
gold plaques add a sense of art decor to this vintage piece whilst the gold tassel gives
it a hint of 1920s flavour to the bag. Gucci has also launched a python print version
which combines Spring / Summer 2012 animal print trend with this classic design.
|9. YSL Cabas Chyc|
Although this was a 2011 favourite but for it's elegant and practical design, I
decided to add this to the list. Hollywood celebrities have certainly fallen in love with
this bag and hence a highly recommended option.
|10. Longchamp Le Pliage Bag in Leather|
10. Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir Bag in Leather
Ah... and the final runner up to the Top 10 bags to own for SS 2012 is the
Longchamp Le Pliage Bag in Leather. This style of bag known for its versatility
and functionality has been seen on almost every other lady walking down the street
but in its widely popular nylon version. Thus I was up in arms to welcome the
introduction of the leather version to up the ente for this hot favourite, sealing it
with a classy edge.
So which is your favourite?
