Whenever I hear of an actress designing a line of clothes, bags, shoes, etc. I'm a bit sceptical. Designing is not for everyone. You need a strong sense of aesthetics, creativity, passion, time, patience, and love for fashion to transcend your vision. Victoria Beckham seems to have them all (OK, maybe except for patience)!
- VB owns 100+ Hermés Birkin bags
- She's impeccably dressed
- She has strong aesthetics
- She lives, breathes, and eats fashion
- She's funny (you also need humor in fashion)
- She has a dream (for her name to be as popular as a soap brand in Britain)
- She is married to one of the hottest man alive, David (not fashion related but a fact none the less)
I'm not a VB fan but girl can design, or at least she got Katie Hillier (Marc by Marc Jacobs design consultant and bag designer) to collaborate with her and the two have created a beautiful collection.
Watch out spice girls, a new bag designer has joined the fashion arena! Let the games begin...
The Victoria Beckham handbags:
|According to Beckham, her brand is about looking “beautiful from all angles.” Personally, I love structured bags. My favorite is the fossil buffalo travel bag with pale gold hardware (right-most side).|
|According to fashionista.com, "the two of the styles–the leather and nubuck shoulder bag and the hexagonal chain bag in crocodile–went on sale yesterday at Net-a-Porter. The leather and nubuck sold out within the hour, Elle UK is reporting. The nearly $14,000 crocodile bag (pictured right) sold out by the afternoon."|
I've unearthed my structured handbags while I was cleaning out my closet. After seeing VB's collection, it has inspired me to start using them again. Like what I wrote before, let's reuse, reduce, recycle fashion this year! The problem is, I don't own a denim stretch pencil skirt to go with my handbags. Where can I buy? Oh well...
Shoppingera, what treasures have you discovered lately in your closet while decluttering?
