Our Purse Picks
Posted in Trend Alert
If there is one thing any outfit can’t be complete without it’s a good purse. While we are aware that current trends will mean that new collections will be on the shelves as well. Here we’ve managed to pick some brands that truly deliver great products for the season.
Danse Lente is a London-based brand that has caught our eye with their high-quality bags and unique aesthetic. Right now, their current collection has offered a variety of purses that arrived just in time for the spring. Take their accordion bag, Mia— it’s made with a simple and modern appearance that comes in handy for just about any setting. They also have, the Lilou bag, which is made with a distinct shape that is ideal for a night out or even to the office to impress at your client meeting..
And for some US brands to check out, we’re into this New York based line, MZ Wallace. Founded in the year 2000 by native New Yorkers, Monica Zwirner and Lucy Wallace Eustice, the brand took inspiration from New York City lifestyles. And the brand truly delivers with its current collection. Take for instance this Small Sutton purse that comes in elegant metallic colors and lively polka dot patterns, can go with anyone’s personal tastes. Also, the small yet functional Micro Crosby can hold a smartphone and some credit cards, which makes it great for traveling light.
Another New York-based brand that has our attention is the luxury label, Tusk. This line of accessories was made possible thanks to founder, Hiten Manseta. Manseta himself grew up in Bombay surrounded by a family of people in the textile business. However, rather than continue in Bombay, Manseta moved to New York and launched Tusk in 1993, and it’s still thriving with a diverse line of purses! One of our favorites include the Ascot Billie Small Bucket Bag that was crafted with high-quality materials, and pairs very well with casual outfits. Tusk also has this Gothman Gloss Top Zip Cross Body Bag that has a sleek yet sturdy design, which is great for avid travelers.
Now we head the West coast in Los Angeles, where Hammitt is truly making an impression on us with its most recent line of bags. One of our favorites is their Nash Clutch that comes in a variety of different colors to go with any outfit, from the office to a nightclub. Meanwhile, this Dillon Limited Edition Cross body bag provides a modern touch to conventional purse design.
Back in New York luxury label, Steven Alan is also on our radar. This fashion line itself does offer a diverse set of clothing and accessories that are great for the spring, however, it still presents us with their wonderful purse collection. One of our favorites include this Bissett Bag Noir that is made with a simple yet classy appearance. In addition, we love this Small Circle Tote bag that is great for a day at the beach or a sunny afternoon walk.
We go back to London for a line of bags that is great for any Vegan fashionistas, Labante London. The brand of bags was launched in 2009 built on their philosophy, “Fashion with respect.” All of their accessories and bags are made with high quality faux leather that is ethically sourced and made from recycled materials, making them eco-friendly. One of our picks for the season is the Vanessa Across the Body Bag. Not only is the sleek design fit for areas such as the office, but the black color makes it wearable for just about any place. Meanwhile, their Kelly Across the Body Bag is a wonderful and sophisticated bag that is a great for daily wear.
