What are the trends in leather bags this season?
Your are looking for the rignt trends this season : good ! But…
Warning: no faux pas for this season’s trends in leather bags!
So you start looking for the it-bag or business bag which will make the difference, your difference, this season. When you’ve found it, you want it to make you beautiful if you are a woman and boost your self-assurance if you are a man!
You will want it to be noticed, to attract envious glances, in the office, so that it astonishes your colleagues in a meeting and gives you a head start with your customers; you want people to spot it discreetly, but definitely spot it, at your friends, and when you’re out and about…
So you are on the hunt.
Your first step is to get tapping, consult blogs and flick through magazines. Garance Doré and The Sartorialist have become friends, you are at home in the pages of Elle or Lui, and even Vogue, Ideat, GQ, or Numéro set your head spinning: each presents its own it-bag, swears that this is the right one… but it’s not the same one as in the magazine you just finished reading at the hairdresser’s! And hey, what do you know, this one, looks a lot like another one you spotted … 2 years ago! Help!
And how can I tell if it’s Kate Moss or Kim Kardashian who has the most beautiful one? And what about Kennie West while we’re at it? But if George Clooney likes a different one to Brad Pitt, what do I do? But to look young, shouldn’t I go for the same one as Justin Bieber?
This is madness: you are in the eye of the storm, looking for THE trend, THE fashionable bag.
Ah, trends and fashion … a never-ending cycle. A sham that forces us to adopt postures like a diktat with images, sepia filters and soft focuses on Instagram?
No, you have too much personality to be taken for a ride and what if trends and fashion were actually appealing to your creative faculties?
That’s right, chill out and let go. Remember that you have senses too! You have an eye for things which is part of your sensitivity alone and a sense of touch only equalled by that intimate peach-like skin of your partner. And what if you viewed Tumblr or Pinterest simply as great stimulation to make bold choices and assume them?
And what about if you were the editor of Express Style or the fashion editor of Wallpaper? And what if you did like they do?
And what if you were your own best fashion editor?
And what if you were the one who decided which bag is your it-bag?Tags: bag, leather bag, Leather goods, Trends
