I just love writing about newer designers! There is just something so exciting about seeing fresh, new designs. The designer that I chose to write about today feels really special. Meet laContrie, a Parisian leather goods workshop founded by Edwina de Charette de la Contrie. Each laContrie handbag is hand-made in their workshop-boutique, allowing some customization if ordering directly from the company. If you’re looking for a basic handbag though, ShopBop can also hook you up. All of the styles I have seen so far are absolutely gorgeous, but the one pictured here is my favorite. Take a moment and discover the laContrie Rohan Bag!
Saddle bags have been making a comeback lately and, laContrie does this style very, very well! Inspired by vintage cartridge bags this bag can be worn on the shoulder or as a crossbody. I love the heavy, unlined leather and rich brown color. What really makes this piece stand out though is the contrasting turquoise stitching. I absolutely love the brown and turquoise color combination! This bag would be perfect for casual summer days when you don’t need to carry a lot of stuff with you. I can definitely picture it with a boho-inspired outfit. However, I think this bag would go with a lot of things, including jeans and a simple T-shirt.
The laContrie Rohan Cross Body Bag is available at SHOPBOP
