There has been a flood of new handbag designers hitting the market lately. I stumbled across another one today. It caught my eye not because it’s by a new designer, but because the bag happened to really catch my eye. The company was launched last year by former Kate Spade and Calvin Klein designer Sydney Suh-Lee. According to handbag designers bio, OAD is all about combining minimalist form with functional details. Looking at the OAD Mini Kit Cross Body Bag, I can definitely see that.
The powder blue is such an awesome seasonless color- yes even for Fall. This lovely, yet simple, pastel was paired with super clean lines and minimalist design. I love the tent-like shape this bag has. If you look at it from the side, you’ll see the bottom is wider than the top. The simple rectangular sides are almost completely void of details, except two hidden slip pockets, a zippered pocket and (interestingly) two pen loops. In other words, you can keep all your tiny essentials within reach. Perfect for those who like to keep all within their fingertips.
The OAD Mini Kit Bag by Sydney Suh-Lee is available in Dark Wine and Black. Retails for $315.
