Did you all hear that 49 of the states in the USA have snow right now? All but Florida. Unfortunately and fortunately, Vlad and I are leaving Florida to head back to NYC and I am beginning to remember why I am a Florida girl. Snow looks great in pictures and is great in theory – but I freeze easily. I prefer sun, sand, and palm trees. While I will be trudging through the snow and bundling up in the cold, I will remember that Spring is around the corner. Bright colors and beach days.

Spring handbags are taking over my inbox and mind. Spring will bring hues of color we all crave in compact bags. It will be about getting the most out of your small handbag that still packs a stylish punch. I appreciate innovative designs and that is what the Jil Sander Pyramid Wristlets showcase. Innovation.

I have always shared my love of a good wristlet, and this one really has me intrigued. I love the idea of this accessory. Thank you Jil Sander for giving us something interesting to look at and think about. I’m guessing that the true pyramid shape will make this a bit roomier than other wristlets, having the base of the wristlet be wider. I would love to see this bag in person and see how much will comfortably fit inside. And Spring, if you are listening, don’t be afraid to make an early appearance this year.

    I like the fact that its very different but it doesn’t seem very comfortable (ipad)

  • annabelle

    cute wristlets, but i’ve never tried one.
    my personality doesn’t allow me to dangle anything on my wrists. (ipad)

    • ErikaT

      I agree with AnnabeLle, cute wristlets but I’ve never tried one either. Maybe its time I give a wristlet a try.

  • Laurie

    Cute idea, but I agree maybe isn’t the most functional -carrier friendly wristlet.
    ps: it’s snowing in Hawaii? (ipad)

    • Teknerd122

      It frequently snows in Hawaii. Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea both approach 14,000 feet. At that elevation, it doesn’t matter if you’re at or near the equator – it’s COLD.

  • ninjaninja

    If they were smaller, they would make great coin purses (ipad)

  • Pam

    They are — different.(ipad)

  • Chris Jones

    Presumably, Hawaii has no snow either. (ipad)

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      Hawaii does have snow right now in the mountains :)

  • Vitta

    Fun! I don’t think it is intended to be very functional, you know. Just have fun with it! Lovely post, too, Megs. Have a nice trip!

  • Dominic

    FABULOUS! I adore those. Gimme me each one in every color! (ipad)

  • Marion

    It looks a little impractical because you can’t fit a wallet or a phone that’s too large but I ADORE the colors it comes in! (ipad)

  • Oxana

    I would wear one if only I get it as a present. I would not spend my money on it as it is too obvious which year this collection is.

  • 19yearslater

    I would totally rock one of these. It would look wonderfully unexpected with a normal spring outfit like sundress, flats, and maybe a light cardy. (ipad)

  • Leah

    These are so cute and cheerful! (ipad)

  • Marianna

    I rarely use a wristlet as a wristlet. I need too much of my stuff to leave the house without a true handbag. That said, I do like these and I think the colors are great.

  • Marianna

    Oh and one other thing…(ipad)

  • Rachel

    Cute! Didn’t Alexander Wang do a similar pyramid bag? I saw that every state except FL had snow! That is CRAZY. I’m in Boston where we got hit with a big bulk of it! (ipad)

  • Tina

    this is so adorable! i love wristlets but i do question if its really functional (ipad)

  • Sue E

    Very interesting design and the colors are hot (ipad)

  • amanda

    Ugh, I am a Florida girl too, but 48 degrees is still too cold for Florida! I’m in college in North Florida right now and it’s completely different than the South Florida I am used to. (ipad)

  • Alicia

    I like it – it reminds me of the pyramid tea bags. I can see this becoming a big trend. (ipad)

  • Alicia

    Also, re: functionality – I don’t think wristlets in general are very functional, but I think these will have a higher functionality than most because of their volume. So cute! (ipad)

  • Tiffany

    I love the colors! I would totally rock one (ipad)

  • Michelle

    what a waste of leather

  • Shana

    Reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw’s Eiffel Tower bag (ipad)

  • GorgeouslyAwesome

    i personally think its hideous, but whatever floats your boat =] (ipad)

  • quimerula

    They look like those weird tea bags (ipad).

  • Miriam

    You can get one of those Rubik’s Cube purses for much less (ipad)

  • Ellen

    It is not very functional, but I like the vintage feel of the wristlet and the bright colors. (ipad)

  • Sbelle

    I wouldn’t carry one. (ipad)

  • honeycem

    Seems like it would get in the way, constantly hitting my knee.

  • Joyce

    I like these, definitely cute and original! (ipad)

  • Barb

    Love the colors but hate, HATE the design so NO!(Ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    I wonder how much you can fit in it (ipad)

  • Jen

    I love these – very Jil Sander! I don’t see a price though?

  • ninjaninja

    When I think of wristlets, I think of club goers. (ipad)

  • Kelly

    ummm it looks okay…. Color is cute but the style is a little funny? (iPad)

  • atrophia

    I like this, but I wish there was a red one.

  • Stephanie

    Now this is something you don’t see everyday. :) I like the concept, but I’d really like to see someone wear it first to get a good idea just how stylish this accessory can be.

  • louch

    My 6 year old gave a great description “they look like little tents”! I think the square shape would be very awkward on your wrist (iPad)

  • Bettye

    I don’t like the shape. Looks like a pyramid and would probably be uncomfortable to wear. (ipad)

  • Lianne

    I’ve seen leather pyramid bags like this at one of the local craft shows (a high end craft show) for years now, although rarely in colours like this. I really don’t see much use for a bag shaped like this. It’s just not a practical shape. But it is cute. (ipad)

  • Maggie

    It’s definitely different, but I do really love the bright colors! (ipad)

  • lovelavie

    don’t like it. (ipad)

  • Tonya

    I love the colors but not so much the desing (ipad)

  • Tonya

    *design

  • Mousse

    I really like this cute little bag. The shape reminds of the fun shaped bags / pouches you can find in Tokyo. (ipad)

  • lilobubbletea

    I really like the colors but not so much the material? Or maybe the shape…because I feel like most the time, wristlets are supposed to be convenient – and with the shape of this one, I don’t think it serves its purpose. (ipad)

  • Cara

    I am loving the look of this. I have become a total wristlet girl on the weekend. I am curious what the price will be? (ipad)

  • Kim

    Just say no. (ipad)

  • Simply Me

    Love it!!

  • Sasha

    Very cute unique design in fun colors, but do you mean Spring 2011 not 2010?(ipad)

  • Cathy Fitz

    Unique – yes. Cute – sort of. Practical – nope! IMHO, they look like something a liitle girl might carry. (ipad)

  • Raventress

    It is definitely an innovative design but it doesn’t seem too practical in terms of space. (ipad)

  • swati

    its cute and innovative. looks wonderful in photos but i’m not sure how it will look dangling from one’s wrist ….. not all that great, i suspect (ipad)

  • Sosti

    I like it. Its different, bright fun funky piece. I’d like to see it in person to see how big it actually is but def is a possible new accessory for spring!

  • cl

    i can’t ever imagine holding this and having it dangle from my wrist (ipad)

  • DTKC

    Reminds me of Hersey chocolate kisses, which I would rather have as a dessert instead of wristlets….I think I’ll pass. (iPad)

  • LDJ

    I like…I would tote it with a cute summer outfit. Like if Im running a few errands. Just something to have to keep my $ and ID in for the time being. (ipad)

  • superbaghag

    Strange but interesting. (ipad)

  • Elizabeth

    I don’t like the handle placement. I would prefer if the strap was on one of the other 4 corners, so it would hand sideways. Then it wouldn’t band my legs as i walked :) (ipad)

    • Jelita78

      great minds think alike Elizabeth!
      i would imagine the square based would be banging on my legs too..

      love to see the size of this and is it as roomy as it looks like.. (ipad)

  • Jenn

    I love it (ipad)

  • Jenn

    It is so unique (ipad)

  • Chells

    Fun colors, but the shape may be a bit awkward to dangle from the wrist and get in and out of. (ipad)

  • Jenn

    i want the pink one (ipad)

  • spanish moss

    this made me giggle. love the greenish-yellow one. (ipad)

  • Jen

    I think it looks kind of weird to be honest, haha. (ipad)

  • MizzJ

    haha it reminds me of a little tent! I would definitely not wear this.

  • PurseAdict

    I normally tend to like classic bags but I actually like this, I like its shape it has a defined geometric shape…. (ipad)

  • nick

    How much can this hold? (ipad)

  • Justine

    I like the gray and the yellow! (ipad)

  • Tracey G

    interesting design to say the least (ipad)

  • edoardo

    When Raf Simons put all himself to think about design the results are so beautiful, cretaive and cool that it’s impossible not to appreciat ethem. Here the color (fluoa s all the menswear and womenswear collection fo Sander…), the shape nad the use of zips is so cool :)

  • RedHead

    Crud! Now I want a pink one. (ipad)

  • Beth

    Sure, not exactly practical but I could see carrying it for a wedding or event. Love the yellow one. (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    Interesting (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    By the way, I wished it snowed in SF. (ipad)

  • XXAL

    its a unique design but maybe she could’ve used some swarovskis. right now its at 50% uniqueness & 50% awkwardness.. so to make it 100% unique & crazy, i’d say bling it out. (ipad)

  • Penny

    It might be a little uncomfy to hold but it looks so new & exciting! plus, neon colours are all over the S/S 2011 collections…I know I want one!

    Super cute. Bravo to Jil Sander for producing an innovative refreshing shape in fun juicy spring colors. And ditto on the snow- I am a creature of the sun and loving my desert sunshine right now. This bags totally compliment my mood and climate. (ipad)

    Hmmm… I don’t know, I’m indifferent for some reason. (ipad)

  • Kathy

    Absolutely adorable….I will buy several (ipad)

  • Isabelle

    A great option is the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini!!
    It’s got a similar satchel-like shape with the rocker attitude and is more affordable but still good quality.

    You can find it on eBay:

    Interesting! I wonder how big this is? Don’t really use wristlets by themselves, but if this could fit in my bag it would be functional and cute. (ipad)

  • Bijou

    the style reminds me of these popsicle things i used to have (ipad)

  • Bijou

  • Joshua

    these look so fun! these would be such a wonderful product to display at their boutiques, hanging them from the ceiling with a thin string to make it look like they’re floating. i would love the grey one, i would use it to hold coins, if they would only make a smaller one. (ipad)

  • Linda

    Not a fan. (ipad)

    I think it would be better in other colors (ipad)
