While browsing the web looking at handbags (what else, right?) today, I started to notice something odd. There are a lot of perforated handbags floating around right now. Is this a new trend or something? If so, I don’t think I received the memo. I guess when I think about perforated bags, I flash back to Louis Vuitton’s perforated collection from a few years ago. There weren’t too many perforated bags to speak of after that. Now they are suddenly popping up everywhere. What gives? Oh well, I suppose I can give this trend a chance. After all, some of the styles might actually be cute. Just be careful though. I think this is a very tricky trend to pull off. Bright colors or bright white keep this look fresh. I picked out a couple pieces that I like, just so you can see what I’m talking about. Enjoy!
Furla Perforated Brooklyn – $498
You don’t see Furla too much anymore, but this designer really seems to be making a comeback. This shoulder bag is nice. I like how it is slouchy at the top, but it still has a somewhat structured bottom. The tiny perforations are perfect for someone wishing to try this trend without getting their feet too wet. The crisp white is great too, pairing nicely with just about anything.
Rebecca Minkoff May May – $350
This little bag is so cute, but I probably wouldn’t expect less from Rebecca Minkoff! All her bags are cute! What I like about this particular piece is the wider perforated pattern, which was arranged as diamonds rather than squares. The bold hardware is a nice touch too. Plus I love the pretty seafoam green!
Juicy Couture Light & Airy Daydreamer – $348
Never did I think I would see a perforated Daydreamer, but Juicy has done it! This bag doesn’t look too bad. I especially like the crisp white paired with the gold tone hardware. This is a great satchel style, perfect for summer! Plus it has the traditional grosgrain ribbon detail. But what Daydreamer would be complete without?
Jack Spade Monza Bill Holder Wallet – $125
Let’s not forget the boys! Even Jack Spade has some perforated pieces to offer. I especially like this wallet. The bright color and pinhole perforations make this wallet a step away from the ordinary. Perfect for the guy who wants something different.
