WILL YOU BE HOLDING ON TO THE NEXT ‘FOREVER‘ BAG?
A fashion debate has been raised at VAHQ.
‘Could our next handbag splurge be influenced by the rising handheld trend we’re currently witnessing everywhere?’
Everyone has their perfect style of bag, don’t they?
The one they find themselves approaching each time they hit the stores but could your next spend be the boxy handheld bag. Or will a classic tote, shoulder bag or cross-body eternally be your top choice?
We are in two minds.
Thinking logistically, the structured silhouette trend is what we are familiar with. Hurling everything into a slouchy bag or a tote can often be an issue and forever hunting around for a lipstick or the house keys can be annoying. However, there is a great advantage to being hands-free and knowing our handbag is safely on the shoulder or across the body.
Fashion-wise, the structured handheld bag gives a polished approach to any outfit and works amazingly with understated garment choices. Think roll neck cashmere on the top, a pair of leather leggings and chunky black suede booties – add the bag, and you are put together, ready to go.
Ultimately who are we kidding, we can never have too many styles of handbags. The longer we look at them the more we like them. Besides so many have a strap that converts them to cross-body; problem solved. The decision will be about shape not whether we add one to the wardrobe or not. Yes, we are definitely in.
What are your musings on the matter is the structured, handheld for you?
