With all the attention that Celine’s immaculate Classic Box Bags have received, one would think that more designers at every price level would be jumping on the bandwagon to give the look a shot. Some have, to be sure, there are a few companies who I expected to see make the effort sooner.
Jil Sander is one such brand, and I feel as though I’ve been waiting to see the Jil Sander Lady Crossbody for at least two seasons. It’s here! It’s finally here! And it’s very good.
Like Celine, Jil Sander has been one of the leaders in the revival of minimalism in fashion, so it only makes sense that the company would have a box bag in its accessories line up. This one is just as sleek and modern as you’d expect from Sander, and the lime green color is well within the palette that Raf Simmons has established during his tenure at Jil Sander’s helm. Count me as a fan. Buy through Saks for $1280.
