Sang A Python River Square Tote Sang A handbags have captivated me. The shapes are very different from many bags that you find in the market, which is hard to say for other designers. One of my favorite Sang A bags is the River Square Tote. And the yellow python version was top on my list after seeing one of Sang A’s friends carrying it to an event in NYC. The perfect shape to hold the bright burst of color. But I held off buying the bag and now I would desperately like to take back my shopping ban (which I somehow continue to break) and go for this amazing deal.

Vivre has marked down the version of the River Tote that caught my attention, a whopping 50% off. I am still going to hold off, not by choice but really because this next month I need to spend money on all my wedding week attire. Someone else buy this and let me live vicariously though you. Available via Vivre for $1,225. (more…)

Sang A has made her designs known in the fashion world. Whether it be through word of mouth, celebrity sightings, TV sightings, or just being in the know, Sang A Bags have cultivated a strong following. Sang A bags are known for their exotic skins and stand-out designs. While in NYC last month, Vlad and I missed meeting with Sang A but were able to follow up with an interview last week.

The Koren born Sang A was making waves in the Korean entertainment and music scene and is now making waves in the US handbag design scene. Her designs are more well-known by the day. Some of my favorite designs by Sang A come in shapes that are not polluting the handbag market. Her River Tote is very well known and well liked, offering a square tote shape with hardware that stands out. Her pouch clutches are favorites of mine as well, easy to wear out and dress up for an event or pair with jeans. We shot a variety of Sang A bags in our studio to give you all a better look at the amazing work that goes into each bag and showcase the essence of the bags.

Today I got an email with a complaint about us covering Gossip Girl on Purse Blog. Ok, I see your point. This is a handbag website and covering a TV show that is not about handbags may seem a bit off topic. But you must give it to Gossip Girl for having some of the most bold, fun, young, hip, and daring styles! And one of the things that Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman does best is accessorize the characters.

This week we found Blair Waldorf, Leighton Meester, carrying around a classic yet hip crocodile tote. This tote is one of my favorites, as it is a Sang A Bag. We have covered Sang A on Purse Blog before and I have loved her different uses of materials, modern lines, and sleek styles. The River Tote has been the bag on my lust after list (in YELLOW PYTHON!). Blair Waldorf carried a different version of the River Tote, and I must admit that I am in love!

The Sang A River Tote in African Crocodile was the bag of choice for character Blair Waldorf as she made her way onto Yale’s campus. The bag signifies tradition, elegance, and class while being able to be worn by a young 20 year old and not look old. The bag worked perfectly for all of her outfits and I am officially in love with Sang A bags all over again! The River Tote is a staple for Sang A and is available in a wide variety of colors and materials. The specific bag Blair was seen carrying retails for $9,440 at Sang A online. (more…)

Earlier this week I brought you the Sang A River Square Tote, which has become a staple for this flourishing young designer. Sang A is worth talking about and worth the slow growing hype. The Korean-born Sang A did not start out as a designer, though her track in life has been anything but ordinary. Sang A was a popular stage/television actress and singer and release three pop music albums on a major label by age 26. Talk about accomplished. But one of her true loves and passions came from costumes, colors, and styling of her stage outfits, which ultimately lead her to take on design and move to New York City. Her accessories were launched in the Spring of 2006 and since the launch her popularity has shifted from being known as a singer to being known as a designer. Sang A focuses on the art of luxury; using exotic skins that are meticulously treated. The style lines are clean and leave an impression. When speaking about her designs Sang A states, “My design exudes the essence of modern classic with a dose of avant garde”. Below are four of my favorite handbags from the Fall/Winter 08 line from Sang A. The colors stand alone, the skins are extravagant, and the designs are the perfect touch of modern. Find more information on the designer at Sang A online. To order call 212-564-4433 or email store@sanga.com . Also, Vivre sells Sang A and has a great selection!

When Vlad and I attended a Hermes event a few months ago a different designer was on my mind. Sang A. The reason being I saw a girl carrying the stunning Sang A River Square Tote in the perfect python honey-hue and I could not get it off my mind. The other reason Sang A was on my mind is because she was at the event. I had seen photos of Sang A online before so her face looked so familiar but I did not go and say hi. We emailed later and turns out it was her! So at the Hermes event, where my mind started off focusing on Hermes handbags, I found myself drifting off into the world of Sang A. This former actress and singer from Korea has created quite the buzz around her line handbags. The colors are rich and the skins are high-quality. The Sang A River Square Tote has always been a favorite of mine; it is a mixture of perfection and simplicity all rolled together. Python skin tends to be lighter and looks stunning for an everyday bag. Sang A has the River Square Tote available in a variety of skins and colors, but the sunshiny appeal of the honey python has captured my attention and kept it. The gold hardware adds a slight shine next to the matte python. The inside continues to show luxury with satin lining and two pockets. Measurements are 12″ x 11″ x 3″. Since I first laid eyes on this exact bag in this exact color my heart melted, and my heart continues to yearn for this exact bag. Buy through Vivre for $2,450.

Stay tuned for much more from this designer!
