Lace is making a comeback. Lately, I have been hearing a lot about lace and how it has been experiencing a renaissance of sorts. The lost art of lace-making has been given new life over the last 5 years or so, with more and more companies discovering just how gorgeous lace can be. When it comes to lace though, I have mostly been seeing it on clothing. It is also starting to become more popular in the bridal scene. But not so much when it comes to handbags.
Sure the occasional formal clutch with a lace overlay pops up here and there, but lace has never been a really popular material for handbags. This doesn’t mean that lace-lovers cannot enjoy a lace like piece. I came across the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Baby Embellished Leather Tote the other day and thought it was a great example of this. This iconic piece was given a makeover, complete with off-white leather and grommet stud embellishments. But it isn’t the embellishments alone. It is the lace-like pattern they create that gives this piece that lacy look and feel. The overall look is very light and airy and would be perfect for this coming spring season.
The Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Baby Embellished Leather Lace Tote is available here at SAKS FIFTH AVENUE.
