Ask any bagista: What is the most practical handbag color? Nine times out of ten you will hear the answer: Black. Okay, so I probably just made that up. But it is true that many of you ladies out there see black as a very practical color. It is classic and it compliments just about anything (color-wise). It is no wonder so many bagistas choose black when seeking out a handbag wardrobe staple. Oddly enough, I don’t seem to follow this line of thinking myself when choosing a handbag. Black is fine, I suppose. But I think other colors are equally worthy of being called “practical”. Brown is very versatile, for example. Red is also a wonderful color that compliments many things. There is a new trend brewing though. Dark grey is becoming the new black. It is neutral, yet it is different enough to make everyone you pass walking down the street give your handbag a second glance! Below are some great examples of this new trend!
When it comes to fashion I love classy, simple and sophisticated looking things. I’m the type of girl that always dresses up even if I’m just going to the grocery store. Some say I’m weird but is there anything wrong with wanting to be put together at all times? I love my hair and makeup to always be done and heels are a must. When I think of classy designer brands, Yves Saint Laurent immediately comes to mind. However, the fashion house changed their name so now it’s just Saint Laurent. I currently do now own anything by Saint Laurent but I sure do love the Y Ligne Mini Pochette Crossbody Bag.
Obsessed: Saint Laurent Y iPhone Case
Even though the name has changed to Saint Laurent, the fashion house is still holding on to the classic Y line in tribute to the late Yves. Which is fantastic news if you ask me! I love my “YSL” logo bags and I can’t wait to add another to my collection. One that I have on my wishlist is this phone case – all I need is an iPhone to go with it! Right now I have the HTC inspire which I really like but my phone plan is set for renewal in a couple months and when that happens it’s time for a change, and I’m going back to the iPhone.
According to reports, Yves Saint Laurent‘s creative director Hedi Slimane is changing the name to Saint Laurent Paris. I mean personally I don’t really care for change. ‘SLP’ doesn’t really have quite the ring as ‘YSL’ and what does this mean for that classic YSL logo? Time will tell. WWD reports that the ‘Yves’ name drop will be introduced in the next few months and will be in place by the time Slimane debuts his first collection for Spring Summer 2013.
What do you guys think of this change?
