“The Vintage” steals our hearts this week

| November 12, 2010 at 5:30 PM

In our second Friday installment of “Bag of the Week” there seems to be one clear contender. This bag is a new arrival, and it’s probably going to sell out quickly. We’re speaking, of course, of the The Vintage. Even though we already mentioned it as one of the many perfect accessories to use to capture the Schoolgirl Chic Look, it should be noted that this bag is more than just a flash-in-the-pan trend.

Its graceful structure and supple leather qualify it for the category of “Timeless Classic.” Indeed, this bag is reminiscent of vintage Salvatore Ferragamo and leather Lanvin bags from the 60’s. Since the recent vintage revival in the fashion industry, there have been many vintage-inspired bags from top designers, but none beat the simple, gorgeous look of our bag. Coming in two shades, rich oxblood and matte black, this casual handbag looks best with business, casual, and vintage-themed outfits. It’s all too easy to picture this vintage classic shape on the arm of Peggy Olsen in Mad Men, or in the hands of Marianne Faithfull back in her hey-day.

It’s hard not to covet a bag where every detail (luxurious leather, subtle silver hardware, vintage-inspired flap closure, etc.) is so perfect – which is why this is our pick for Bag of the Week!
