The one thing I love about trends (and fashion as a whole) is that they can be interpreted a million different ways depending on the person. An individual’s personal style can say a lot about who they are or even their mood on any given day. My style changes day to day, but it definitely gives off a mix of casual downtown vibes with a twist. One thing I’m always cognizant of is looking put together no matter what it is that I’m wearing. Even if I’m in sneakers or athleisure I never want to look sloppy. Though what’s on the inside is incredibly important, what a person is wearing says a lot about them. So what does it mean when someone wants to wear Dumbo on their purse? Forgive me if I’m wrong, and maybe I’m reading too far into this, but to me I would feel a little too juvenile wearing a character from a children’s movie on my purse. I know Disney is well loved by many women, but I’ve just never been drawn to it so much so that I’d want to wear it on my body.
I get it — life can be incredibly challenging and tough at times, and maybe, just maybe wearing Dumbo on your purse brings you a little bit of joy, but what at what price? I guess maybe for some people a Dumbo purse is all in good fun, and like I mentioned above, maybe I’m looking too far into the meaning of a Dumbo bag, but what I do know is that it is definitely not for me. First Coach released their newest Disney x Coach collection featuring Dumbo and I was not surprised, being they have done collaborations with Disney in the past. Then, Loewe released images of their collaboration with Disney and my jaw hit the floor. Loewe is a luxury brand known for their unique approach to minimalism, and to me, seeing Dumbo on Loewe’s usually clean and classic designs was a bit shocking. Whether on a luxury brand’s bag or a contemporary brand’s bag I just don’t want to wear Dumbo on my purse. What about you? Does a Dumbo purse speak to your personal style?
