Inspired and triggered by materfamilias recent “Polyvore on the floor” escapades featuring a new pair of spectator “wingtips” (warning: drooling may be a side effect of viewing these) teamed up with a gorgeous red doctor’s bag and some great menswear-inspired ensembles, and Karen’s description of her new red Lancel “L’Adjani” bag from Paris, une femme has been seeing gorgeous red bags everywhere!
As materfamilias mentions, a red bag can be surprisingly neutral itself, and a great way to add some color to more neutral ensembles. My preference: when the color is this strong and bright, keep the rest of the details simple.
kate spade “westbury dani hobo” now on sale $236.90.
(I’ve seen this one up close and it’s really cute and functional!)
Another Marc by Marc Jacobs, Classic Q Groovee Satchel, on sale for $329.90.
(Almost more coral than red, but WOW, what a color!)
(Prada does some outstanding reds, from warm brick reds to cool-but-bright cranberries.)
The Empress of red bags, the Hemès Birkin, $12,783 from Luxury-Shops.com.
Do you have any red bags? Do you find them to be versatile?
