Fashion Editor's Picks: The Little Black Bags – Or LBBs – To Have And To Hold
Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello Solferino Monogram Saint Laurent canvas and leather shoulder bag, Saint Laurent
Named after Rue de Solferino, the street on Paris’ Left Bank which is near to Saint Laurent’s studio, this casual-chic canvas design features a new monogram lock that easily separates itself.
Ghost Sling Bag embossed leather shoulder bag, Balenciaga
An addition to Spring/Summer 2020’s stripped-back Ghost Bag, this pochette-style design – it measures 24.5 cm by 14.5 cm by 4.5 cm – features a slightly curved base than the original to give it a more feminine allure.
Calfskin shoulder bag with semi- precious stone, $9,280, Chanel
The hardware on the flap design looks as though you’ve fixed a vintage Byzantine-style brooch from the brand onto your purse. Tres chic.
The Casette bag (noted for its padded take on the Intrecciato weave) now comes with creative director Daniel Lee’s trademark thick gold chains for its strap – making it the ultimate It bag for fans of ‘New Bottega’.
Lambskin shoulder bag, $2,630, Gucci
This slim vintage-looking shoulder bag boasts the house’s GG motif on a silver-toned plaque and features leather that uses an alternative chrome-free tanning process to lessen the product’s environmental footprint. Additionally, the shoulder strap is detachable so you can carry the bag as a clutch. All sorts of win.
The Story Shoulder calfskin handbag, $3,280, Alexander McQueen
The Story top handle bag welcomes a new shoulder bag design for Pre-Fall which comes with a slightly larger metal handle and a new woven chain.
Maragent Pierre leather shoulder bag, US$$380 ($529), www.modaoperandi.com
