the main flaw with searching for the "perfect bag" seems to be its singularity. one bag to suit all of your needs: day to night, workweek to weekend and back again? this seems highly improbable, so when I asked some members of team scarpa to choose their ideal bag from the current selection in store, I allowed three categories: one for tote/work/weekender, one for daytime (perhaps a day when you don't have to schlep as much around), and one for evening. behold the results below!
for some time now, we've been fans of mih jeans. with the arrival of their latest fit, we're more in love than we've ever been. behold the "bodycon" jean, available now in faded black. from the mih website:
"Using new fabric technology and unique jean engineering, our Bodycon jeans are the most flattering pair you will ever wear. Power-stretch denim holds you in and smooths you out, while a contoured waistband, back darts and the removal of front pockets gives a sleek, streamlined shape. Drop a jean size instantly."
what's not to love? to celebrate the arrival of this miracle denim, we put together a few looks with the latest goods in store to demonstrate just how truly versatile these jeans can be.
if you ever feel as though some fashion trends are lost on you, you are likely not alone. exhibit a: as birkenstocks have appeared again in full force this summer, we've questioned how some have taken to wearing this favorite sandal; namely, the sisters olsen. in the spring, the duo were spotted sporting matching 'stocks with socks. certainly a questionable decision, i think one could acknowledge this as a contained incident in which mary-kate and ashley are simply exercising their "because we can" muscles. (maybe you could, too, but should you? probably not).
in any event, to counter the uneasiness brought about by absurd celebrity trends, i look toward the ethos behind some of our summer goods. thoughtfully crafted products will never go out of style. new bags from specialty dry goods embody this quality. the mom-and-pop operation from santa monica uses vegetable tanned hides. learn more about the unique results of this process from the hand written note below. we honestly cannot think of a more personal touch.
this tan market bag from specialty dry goods : a perfect summer companion.
another bag from speciality dry goods with a unique denim insert.
in the same vein (hide?) we have bags from johnny farah, also crafted using vegetable tanned leather. as they note, the process preserves the leather's natural grain and wrinkle. the final result : beautiful cross body bags, perfect for outings around town and beyond all summer long.
