The Classic Black Bag

By May 11, 2016Fashion

What colour would you say all the handbags in your wardrobe are?

Quick inventory shows that mine are mostly varying shades of pale tan, pastel shades & then some colour thrown in with a pillar box red Mulberry & multi Pucci it’s clear to say there is a definite mix. I only have two black handbag that I treasure for different reasons. The first is a Chanel 2.1 that I received as a Christmas gift when I was 19 & every since I slowly unraveled the crisp Chanel wrapping paper it has been at my side, it goes with everything, it is timeless & thrown with a dress it completes any outfit. My second is a Chanel that I saved up for & bought in the flagship store on Rue de Cambon, in Paris for my 21st birthday. Both bags are great but for day to day & even to add a new evening bag into the mix I have been keeping a look out for anything that caught my eye.

I have been bookmarking a couple different black accessories, notably this Furla bucket bag (one of my faves!), & this gorgeous crossbody saddle bag from Cuyana. When I found myself eyeing this black drawstring bucket bag, I figured it might be high time to  pick up another classic black bag. Below, a selection of gorgeous, classic black bags I’ve rounded up.

What about you? Are you a classic black bag kinda girl? Or is your handbag a way to inject a little color into your everyday ensembles? AA x
