Maybe two years ago, a stylish but practical girlfriend of mine asked: “Do you wear one of those Bandolier things?” “Huh…?” I puzzled. Once she’d mentioned the brand by name, I was astounded at how often I spotted them on the street, in the school pick-up line, etc. The style didn’t particularly stir me, but fast forward two years later, and I find myself seriously in the market for my own. At the top of my lust list? Anya Hindmarch’s cheeky canvas-coated style from her “I Am a Plastic Bag Collection,” a series designed around a sustainable canvas material that took two years to develop and has no carbon footprint. (So cool!)
There is also…
+Dagne Dover’s wildly popular neoprene style for a sportier look (I do love the rich matte colors they offer);
+Cameron Mark’s stylish pebbled leather statement;
+MZ Wallace’s Gramercy style (on sale! — love the navy or white with the sporty webbing strap);
+Even Hermes is in on the action.
P.P.S. I’m having a turtleneck moment.
P.P.P.S. Big girl room inspo.
