Oh, fashion. This industry is so mercurial. One day you can fully consumed by one piece or trend or idea, and then mere hours later, something else pops up and all your energy makes a shift so sharp and sudden that you’re surprised it doesn’t hurt its metaphorical knees. (Yes, my energy has knees. It’s a fully formed, if imaginary, person.) That’s exactly what happened to me at the sight of these Sang A python bags – two days ago, I was obsessed with Rag & Bone. Now, it’s all Sang A. If you’re going to do the whole Fall 2011 python thing, these bags are the way to do it.
The golden finish on the Sang A Pop Tote really has to be seen to be believed. No matter how many times I go into Kirna Zabete, I always, always pick it up to examine it more closely. It’s deep and multi-faceted and so incredibly expensive-looking that words don’t really do it any justice. Most metallic gold bags are terrible and tacky, but this one definitively proves that it’s possible to do shiny gold in an incredibly chic way. Buy through Kirna Zabete for $3400.
Even though the Sang A Geo Shoulder Bag looks exceptionally petite, the bag of this matte leather confection opens up in a way that you wouldn’t expect to give you increased storage space and easy access to your stuff. Buy through Kirna Zabete for $1250.
Multicolored python is perhaps the biggest of the zillions of variations on the python trend for fall, and the timeless shades of green and blue in the Sang A Plush Clutch mean that even after the trend fades, this clutch will be chic. And those are the trend pieces you should be buying – things that create an of-the-moment look right now but will have a home in our wardrobes forever. Buy through Kirna Zabete for $1740.
