Whether or not I’ve experienced a mild or harsh winter, I am always, always, always (get the point?) so ready to see some vibrant, fresh and even soft colors for Spring. Just give me color!
Botkier’s 2012 product line gives us everything we need to start and finish the season with fresh styles and colors in addition to tried and true black and brown. A more restrained use of hardware like zippers, tassels and and metal trims compliment beautifully shaped bags in so many styles, it will make your head spin. Colorblocking is used in ways that compliment the shape and style of the bags too. Clutches, hobos, satchels reign supreme. If you need a satchel, it’s going to be very hard to choose. I already have my eye on several favorites!
The Leon small satchel in Garden green with a tiny pop of cobalt blue is a great choice for Spring & Summer. It’s lady like shape isn’t redundant with everything else on the market. A top handle and shoulder strap make it convenient. This bag may end up being your go to daytime bag. It’s lady like with a little bit of a pop! Also available in a hobo and satchel version with shades of persimmon, noir and tobacco.
The Eden hobo in nude with dove gray handles is soft and understated. I can see myself carrying it everyday. I love a great hobo and it’s soft colorway put me in a peaceful frame of mind. On the other hand, the Medley version in Ocean blue with Plum handles is everything but calm. Bold and bright, this bag has an outgoing personality!
The Phoenix satchel in nude cowhide is another beautiful bag that’s soft shade is easy on the eye. I love the soft structure of this satchel and would love to carry it daily….Do you get the theme here? For evening (or day!) though I’d have to grab the Phoenix clutch, but can’t decide between the noir with a pop of ocean blue or the lavendar lizard calfskin with a pop or red!
The Valentina shoulder, hobo and satchel bags in mint, dove, blush and noir bags are divine! Soft structure. Beautiful rolled handles, shoulder straps with touches of gold hardware are the perfect touch of sophistication.
The Misha is a more structured and modern line with mixed materials including cowhide, rubberized cowhide, snake lambskin and metals provide touch of colorblocking and clean geometrics that will complement any modern girl! Bold colors of ocean, cinnamon, and noir will definitely pop against your wardrobe.
The Nicola tote, satchel and clutch in vibrant shades of cardinal, cognac and noir are bold colors that will take you year round. Lightly glazed cowhide with a tiny touch of silver metal offer a more polished personality.
I’m dying for the Turner I-Pad case with it’s touch of red against a dove and cream goatskin with edgy zippers is fashion forward and says you’re at the leading edge of technology. The satchel and weekenders utilize color blocking and Botkier’s iconic zippers that is modern soft and sophisticated in the dove, mint and desert. While the black is edgy and sharp!
STELLA!!! I am loving the modern styling of the Stella tote and clutch with zipper details as edging, just the right pops of color. The solid ocean blue tote is striking while the white bag with ocean blue or black with white details gives me a thrill. And for the girly girl in all of us, the pretty coral tote is just what we need to express it!
