poisepolish.: The Lady Bag

November 09, 2010

The Lady Bag

As much as I am a shoe girl, I have also been noticing the 'Lady Bag' trend for quite some time now. Well, maybe it's time to get myself a new bag for my birthday next month. If I don't end up with more shoes, of course I will get my hands on one of these.

The Proenza Schouler PS11, which is known as the sophisticated sister to the famous PS1. What I like about this bag is the additional studs and slightly edgier structure which can be worn from day to night. The saddle itself is a beautiful color, truly matches the platinum hardware. But then some argues that it looks like a heavy copy of Hermès Medor clutch here.

A possible option that I will never regret if I end up buying. The iconic Céline box bag that is seen on the arms of too many fashionable people photographed by Tommy Ton from Jak & Jil. But again, I don't feel the energy of this. The more I see it, the more I feel that it is boring and too simplistic. Half of my heart says this is a very timeless, subtle and elegant bag, but another half says it is too plain and flat.

Then I stumble upon this Fendi Classico No. 1. I am in love. I can't resist the textured leather, just enough hardware for the turnlock. Even the Zucca version is beautiful. Last time I promised to myself that I will avoid logos, but then I think I have made a mistake.

Abbey Lee. Enough said.

Frida Gustavsson dressed down the bag and it still looks pretty amazing.

Fendi Zucca Classico No. 1 Satchel can easily be mine for US$1520.

Guess what. Victoria Beckham has created a similar version too, with less hardware. But still, too similar I would say.

  7. I like the PS11 a lot better than the PS1. I was disappointed with the PS1 in person and like the additional hardware on the PS11. The Fendi classico no. 1 is really fun in leather!

  23. nothing like an accordion bag, if you ask me. so it's the fendi. and you could have the option of slinging it or holding it by the top handle.

  24. I'd go with ps11. I've seen n touched all these bags n u'll be surprised by the sturdy construction of ps11. I love fendi but I hate to say that it's one of the big fashion houses that is getting "dusty". In terms of value, the Sophia coppola is good choice since lv bags have great resell value n the sc bag value has already gone up on ebay. Just sth to think about;)

  25. It has gotta be celine box. Less is more.

  26. Hi Sylvia, I don't know about calling it the "Lady Bag" because I think men should be given a chance to carry such bags too. Or even a clutch. Just for the essentials, a point & shoot digicam, money clip, keys…

  27. Oh no! I spelled your name wrong… *Silvia*
