See by Chloe launches a Bag Line
See by Chloe, the less-expensive line targeted to those who crave a more youthful and casual look, than the house’s main line, is getting ready for a new addition – an accessory line.
WWD reports – The line will be distinctive for its graphic plays on the See by Chloé logo and quirky fabric and color combinations, with a strong focus on fabrics rather than only leather.
Styles from the eclectic line include shoulder bags that echo sports bags from the Seventies and glittery, soft clutches, as well as a range of vibrant, logo-splashed cotton canvas shoppers. Certain styles feature detachable straps, and highlights from the small leather goods include a dinky mouse purse and animal key chains.
Prices range from around $300 to $470 at retail for fabric bags to $500 to $700 for leather styles. Small leather goods sell for $40 to $120.

Bag Trend: The canvas shoulder strap
A lot of designers this season are going through a sporty strap phase. Where instead of the usual leather or chain strap, the bags are topped off with a thick detachable cotton canvas shoulder strap. What do you guys think of it?
When it comes to comfort, I’m not complaining. Especially when it comes to a day bag that might be on my shoulder for 4+ hours. Like for instance when you’re out on a shopping trip, you don’t want to carry a bag that’s uncomfortable on your shoulder or that will keep you fidgeting every 5 minutes to keep from sliding down.
Pictured Above: Here we have a range of designer bags, which all come with this new comfy canvas strap accessory.

Lanvin Python Kanvas Bag
Lanvin recently re-introduced the popular Kansas bag with an exotic twist.
Lanvin bags have won over the hearts of many with the functional design mixed in with the classic everyday look. A couple of our favorites Lanvin in action pics are of Courtney Cox Arquette and of socialite fashion heiress Margherita Missoni. And as how they demonstrate in the pictures, this bag looks great for almost any occasion: jeans and t-shirt for a casual day around town or match it with little more sophisticated look in a tailored pencil skirt suit. Whatever you choose this bag is purely superb.
Now add the silver grey metallic finish python to the mix and this bag is gold.
The unstructured body is made up completely from metal feet-to-mouth with python material with a silver finish that really catches ones attention. Also features double brown shoulder straps that work just fine for carrying over the shoulder or on your arm. The mouth of the bag keeps your items secure with a interior zip closure. The interior is lined with the signature Lanvin lining and features one single leather pocket on the back wall.
The metallic python comes with a steeper price tag than the original canvas versions. This beauty can be spotted at mytheresa.com with a $3,497 price tag.
