During my three-plus years at PurseBlog, I feel like my personal aesthetic has changed drastically. When I started, I gravitated towards mostly whimsical or opulent handbags. Since then, my handbag taste has been fine-tuned to practical pieces, as you can recall from my recent Céline purchase. But every now and then, I come across a brand that is truly unique, and I can't help but swoon over its innovative designs. Which brand captured my heart in my most recently? None other than Les Petits Joueurs.
I love when my wardrobe is a balance of useful accessories and pieces that make me smile--or even laugh--and that's exactly what Les Petits Joueurs bags do for me. Designer Maria Sole Cecchi is best know for her popular Lego-type handbags that feature the words or designs rendered in the popular childhood blocks. Quirky Lego cartoon eyes are also a brand staple--the whole aesthetic is playful.
The juxtaposition of the brand's structured handbags, like the top handle bag and minaudiere clutch, with designs that don't take themselves too seriously is one of the main reasons why I would actually want to purchase one of these bags. When writing about handbags and shoes for a living, there's a lot of accessories we come across that we genuinely like, but would never actually purchase; that's not the case with Les Petits Joueurs bags. I can easily see myself incorporating one of these luxe-yet-whimsical handbags into my everyday wardrobe.
As much as I'm an advocate of useful luxury items, fashion, in many instances, is meant to be fun. Shop all of my favorite Les Petits Joueurs bags below and see how some of my favorite celebs and street-style stars carry these fun pieces!
