BAG CHARMS

Tags: , , ,

The trickling in of all the Cruise collections in my inbox and on the world wide web made me go through ‘old’ street style snaps of Milan Fashion Week in February. The one thing that immediately caught my eye was that all the girls used a lot (and when I say a lot, I mean a LOT) of bag charms to pimp their designer bags. It’s not something that I would instantly do to my bags, but I am thinking that adding just one every now and then could be super nice – even though that’s probably not the point of this whole concept. What do you think? Picture by Sandra Semburg.

SYLVIA VAN DER KLOOSTER BAGS

Tags: , ,

Dutch beauty Sylvia van der Klooster – the unofficial muse of Dries van Noten – has been modeling for 18(!) years and walked her very first show amongst Kate and Naomi (yes, THE Kate and Naomi). After living out of a suitcase for a long time she decided to settle down in Amsterdam 10 years ago. Her obsession with bags made her decide to become a traditional bag maker 4,5 years ago and even though she had no intention to start her own business in bags at all, she knew she had to do something when somebody asked her if he could sell her bags. And here she is with her very own, very authentic bag label. Time for a little chat…

THE BACKPACK

Tags: , ,

The backpack has been back for a little while now and it seems like it is not going anywhere anytime soon. Back in high school I used to hate mine so much and was always on the lookout for a ‘cooler’ bag to be toting around my textbooks in. Now, I love it. Would you wear it? Backpack, KARA.

HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT EVERYDAY BAG

Tags: , ,

I already mentioned it a couple of times and I will say it again, I am not a bag person. It’s the most complicated thing for me, to make the right decisions when picking a new one. Very slowly I feel like I am getting better at it and I thought it would be fun to share my personal step by step guide on finding that perfect bag.

RODTNES RONA BAG

Tags: ,

The search is over! After what seems like a never ending search for the perfect cross body bag (it seriously felt like I was looking for a needle in a hay stack!), I must say I am pretty pleased with what I found. All bags I came across were either too small, big, colorful, detailed, ‘out there’, expensive, popular, ‘sold out’, obvious, delicate…oh, how I could go on and on for forever with this list. Anyway, I thought I would never find it, that is until I bumped into this one. It is the perfect size that fits my wallet and some other daily necessities like a glove. Its leather is not too delicate (like my Céline), so I don’t have to worry about scratching it too much. It is black (duh) and has just the right amount of details to it. Plus, it is not your particular it-bag, I haven’t seen it on anyone before. Bag, c/o Rodtnes.
