Foley + Corinna Fur Square Bag
This season, you’ll see the return of the Mongolian fur accessory, and we’re not talking about that iconic 70’s jacket you can find at your local thrift shop. Instead, you’ll find the puff-haired texture on one of Foley + Corinna’s latest, the Mongolian Lamb Small Square Bag.
If it weren’t for the brief description within the name, I would have never guessed the shape of this single strapped bag to be squared. When I think of a squared handbag, I think of a structured classy looking piece… not ‘Cousin It’. Peeking out from the massive layers of lamb wool is a representation of F+C’s soft-pebbled leather hobo bag, complete with a tassel pull, as if an extra dangling feature was really necessary on this one. Antiqued brass hardware compliments the vintage-full look of this bag, and don’t be fooled by the word ‘small’ on this piece, as you’re looking at a 12” x 14” puff bag, hanging off your shoulder.
What a daring move on Foley + Corinna’s part! With fur being the hottest accessory trend right now, I’m not sure if this look was suitably complete. Perhaps a trim would mend this hobo’s wild look. This F+C is a bit too hippie for my taste, but if you’re digging the untamable wool hair array, you can find it in Cream or Black through the online shop of Shopbop
