Refined Edges

New Year

New start

Same Fetish.

As we are now in 2015, it seem appropriate to start the year with a post about handbag (not that an excuse is truly needed). Not exactly ‘IT’ bags or used by whoever the big showbiz names are currently, these unsung marvels deserve a microscopic light from yours truly.

The Zip Box Bag

Debuted during Dolce and Gabbana’s 2008 S/S. For some strange reason this bag appears to have sank to the bottom of the sartorial sea. To me, this bag as a pleasant retro feel. As far as I have seen, this bag has only ever been available in red (not a problem here). Basically a bigger, more practical version of the Louis Vuitton Epi Cannes bag. Definitely a decent day bag, but you would need to be strategical with what you carry and how you pack said bag. Unsurprisingly the rub comes from the lofty price tag, £1000 would be a rough starting price.

Anna Circular Bag

Another D&G rarity, Anna Circular does resemble a vanity case (which is why I am drawn to it). Sizes do vary so you can have a more traditional vanity size of a smaller, or more petite. If you do not want to hold this bag solely by the top handle, there is a cross body strap option if you prefer a shoulder bag. Storage is clearly not an issue though you do need to be pack carefully to optimise space. Price, well I think we can guess that you will have to fork out an epic amount of money to be able to tote one of these babies.
