Shopbop describes Antik Batik as having a “nomad luxe” style. Looking at the Antik Batik Cassi Cross Body Bag, that description totally rings true. Fringes, after all, were used in the costumes of many Native American nomads. Normally fringes bags have a bohemian look to them, a bit of a careless, unfinished fashion. But this bag is much different.
The smoothness of the black leather is such that it resembles satin, and rather than looking rough, the long braided strap is delicately fragile. The jumble of beads and sequins on the front flap is the best part. It fancies up the bag, bringing it from just a black fringed bag to a black fringed bag suitable for evening. Plus, it adds more than a smidgen of cool to any outfit; especially if you are planning on rocking light wash denim or open-toed booties. Not to mention it would look oh-so-effortless dangling off the shoulder, paired with a 20’s style straight-lined dress. It’s a bag that crosses the times, don’t you think?
