We may be in the midst of Fall and Winter right now, but all I can think about are spring bags. We are finishing up our week in NYC and have been previewing some of the most amazing spring collections I have seen in a long long time. Two trends we are seeing that I am loving are a tye-dye-like effect (Bottega Veneta and Rebecca Minkoff) and perforation (YSL and Rebecca Minkoff again).
Perforated leather. We saw Louis Vuitton do this a few seasons back and there seem to be a resurgence. I have to admit I was unsure of perforated leather, but then I saw it in person. When perforated leather is added to a handbag it gives a subtly athletic vibe, adding a slight dimension and effect that helps the leather stand out.
The Yves Saint Laurent Perforated Leather Zipped Tote is a flat design that zips all around the top. The feel is casual yet chic. The logo tag detail also gives that laid back feel. If you know me, you know I want to be able to match most everything with jeans but also have the option of dressing it up a bit. This bag may be more of a jean and tee shirt look, but I have a feeling it could be dressed up as well. Only thing missing that I would love to see is a long cross-body messenger strap. Because that would gives this handbag the exact vibe I adore. Pre-order through Saks for $1,495.
