Happy Fashion Friday, all!
This week, I wanted to bring to your attention some of fashion’s coolest, most unique and perhaps weirdest handbags circulation the fashion world today offers. I happen to think that there’s nothing wrong with going a little crazy with a handbag because after all, you just have to hold it. It’s not like you’re stuck wearing it — even if you later realize it was the wrong fashion choice. But I think handbags (and cell phone cases, just sayin’) are great outlets for self-expression. Nowadays you can probably find a handbag in whatever shape/size/style you want, but just make sure that no matter what crazy bag you decide on, you keep the other accessories to a minimum and the outfit simple and low key.
Here are three new fresh and interesting handbags for spring 2013 to get you brainstorming:
1. Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director, sent his models down the Paris catwalk debuting his Spring/Summer 2013 collection carrying these … objects? Maybe you can show off your hula-hoop skills at your next party!
2. Valentino got in on the transparent trend, which is HUGE this spring. Maybe now, men will stop being nosy about what’s in our handbags!
3. And then there’s my absolute favorite — the Lego Chanel bag! Karl Lagerfeld is definitely one of the designers pioneering this “unusual handbag” movement, as he designed this toy-inspired bag as well
Which one is your favorite? Would you actually buy any of these?
Check back next week for another Fashion Friday!
