Everybody is doing their own avant garde interpretation of the classic spiral notebook clutch. First it was Alexander Wang with the leather bound Amber, then Moschino with the My Secret Diary inscribed notebook, then most recently Barneys New York came out with their own interpretation.
All the bags have that one feature in common, the spiral detail. But what’s so different about each design? There are a few difference which makes each bag their own…
My favorite of the bunch is the Alexander Wang Amber. It actually just came out in the gray and cream leather python-print (above). To me, between all the other versions this one most closely resembles a spiral notebook, and it’s pure fabulous. Available at nap for $625
Next up is the Moschino inscribed My Secret Diary. Not my favorite of the bunch, it just looks too plasticy for my taste. Also I’m not a big fan of the trompe l’oeil book design.
Unlike the other two versions, the Barneys Spiral Bound features double kisslock closures and opens like a coin purse. Also it’s much teenier than the other two. Measures 3.5″ x 5″ x 1.5″. Find it on the sale rack for $299 (reg $795)
Any others bags out there that fall under the Spiral Trend?
