Sharing some bag photos that caught my attention over the past few months.
Plus a little commentary on the ‘It Bag’…
I love this clear back pack! Looks so fresh no? This picture was taken outside Milk Studios. Amongst a sea of it bags spotted that afternoon, his to me stood out the most for the day.
Vintage never gets old does it? (excuse the pun)
I remember stopping her because of her leather jacket (an eBay find), then as she walked away I caught the bag (Proenza Schouler). This one gets the look for less $$ as does any structured bag with similar hardware placement.
Look at this color….
The cutest little lady like bag in a beautiful claret red. Reminds me of this DVF in a similar colour.
The black furry bag in the first photo was designed by the person carrying it. I remember asking her at the time because it looks so luxe and simple. I’m looking to weed out some bags myself, so this post is good inspiration to see what style people around the city are using and focus on what I should get rid of.
On a separate note:
Do I need get out of New York and see if the whole popularity of carrying the latest ‘It Bag’ is less elsewhere? It’s been so long since I’ve gone to Europe that I can’t draw a personal comparison. I speak in very general terms here, not individuals, but I did notice when moving to New York the high number of people that carry the latest bag of the
month season. It’s not just during fashion week, but I see it daily while walking around shooting street style. I don’t think I noticed it to be as prevalent elsewhere before although I need to book a ticket back to London and see what it’s like currently in say zone 1/possibly zone 2.
Perhaps I am wrong? Is it just a NY thing or is this too general of a statement? When speaking with photographers who travel regularly to the major cities abroad, I’ve heard them whisper that it’s more noticeable to them in New York than elsewhere.
What’s it like in your city? Especially if it’s a major one. Do you tend to see people (mostly women), carrying the same trending label or not?
