The other double C brand, Part II
I'm definitely a handbag person - shoulder bags just slip off my shoulders and generally drive me crazy so I have not made shoulder bags a big part of my personal collection. That said, there are many fine examples of shoulder bags with all the delightful details of the handbags. Of the two bags I'm showing above, the caramel coloured shoulder bag is the classic style and there are many fine examples to be found. The burgundy bag, however, is much more rare. It skirts the line between hand and shoulder bag due to its shortish shoulder strap. This beautifully designed strap is neither too long to trail on the ground when held as a handbag, nor too short to function with ease as a shoulder bag. A perfect solution.
What makes the burgundy bag even more delicious is this handy double zip external flap which reveals a number of slots and sleeves for receipts, cards, this or that. It's like a built-in writing case. So clever.
And there's even more tomorrow. Stay tuned.
