Violette Nozieres Banana Adele

It’s time for Viewer’s Choice Mundays! While Megs is a little inhibited (taken that her wireless internet connection went down the drain last night), I’ll be plugging the VCM delight in a trimmed down version (I am not sure about the submissions she got via email). Time to go B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

Behind the odd name Violette Nozieres Banana Adele hides a bag that does not need to hide. Our reader chemlex recently found herself indulged in Violette Nozieres handbags and decided to share the love with us. While I don’t know a thing about Violette Nozieres, fact remains that they make “day into evening” bags that allow one to carry enough neccessities during the day, but still look glamorous during the night time. How much I love flexibility and versatility. This particular bag is an east/west satchel handbag made of vacchetta leather with Italian crackle metallic lambskin trim. It sports dual shoulder straps and an antique brass chain and hardware, whose bead and stone decor consists of natural amethysts, citrines, new jade, agate, riverstones, amazonites and dyed shells. Fancy! The bag measures 17 1/2″ wide x 4 1/2″ deep x 7 3/4″ high and is now on sale (60% down!) for just under two hundred bucks. More information over at Zappos!
