Such is life: fashion goes through cycles and recycles itself, decade after decade, time after time. So while I might feel super modern in my suede fringe skirt, my bold red lips, my round sunglasses and my leather bucket bag, let's just say that I could also transcend the years. In fact, my mom often comments on my photos something along the lines of "That could've been taken in the 60s!" - which always makes me smile because what's cooler than authentically throwing it back?!
My point is, the classics are classics for a reason, but they're constantly reinvented and therefore constantly trending. The true focus of this post is arguably the piece of the season (no, not the ever so impressive Flatiron Building, although unequivocally quintessential) - the leather bucket bag. The all-time carrier staple of yesteryear (read: classic) has been revived to fit the modern uniform in all kinds of contemporary iterations.
This slick white leather version is from LUANA Italy, a label that is taking coolness, quality and affordability one step further. Their pieces will be available online in July, and if the compliments I keep receiving on this bag are any indication, they will surely be selling like hotcakes.
