As warmer months continue to draw near, I cannot help but think about all of the pretty things I will be pulling out of winter storage. Let’s face it, spring and summer are a time for bright colors and bold prints. So why not make the most of it? When you have designers like House of Holland famed for their in-your-face prints, jumping on the bright and bold bandwagon is simple. And with styles such as the House of Holland Hot Dog Flower Bag, why wouldn’t you want to?
When I first saw the House of Holland Hot Dog Flower Bag, I couldn’t get over how surreal it appears. What I mean is, the flowers practically jump out at you. Their 3-D sculpted look, combined with intricately embroidered details, make this flowered bag like nothing I have ever seen before. Each flower features a faceted gold-tone center. Well, except for the PVC flowers you see here and there. Those have jeweled centers! The flowers continue all the way up the strap too! This piece is definitely testing the boundary between fun and over-the-top. But, in a way, I think that is the point. The colors are definitely an unusual combination though, so perhaps this piece should be paired with a solid complimenting or neutral color.
