The satchel is something we can all agree that the modern student needs. The holy grail, that is satchel, has helped generations of uni students carry their daily load of heavy books, laptops and the pencil case to and fro in our daily lives. So how about a last hurrah for them, after you leave them behind for the glamour of the working lifestyle?
The bucket bag climbed the ranks of handbag fame last year, due in part to minimalist accessories designer Mansur Gavriel and in another the growing DIY community, but now it is 2016, going on 2017, and you can’t walk into a retail store and not see a version of it in some form.
The bucket bag has a universally appealing shape: It is structured, but not too much, fashionable but not trendy, and the perfect size to carry around with you – not too large and not too big just perfect!
Whether you need a large bag for home or a small one for on-the-go, there is cute and versatile options available everywhere. Pretty much every brand, retail store, and drug store has one by the make up aisle.
From cute and chic to masculine with primary colours you can find it anywhere and for those of us that likes to travel often this certainly comes in handy.
Now, this bag is gorgeous. The fabric choices, the hand clappers, the minimalistic style – it is simple and elegant. I think this one is actually my favourite type out there. From the clutch style of Alexandre Wang to the floral printed ones by Jil Sander (As seen on the right side pic). Can I say, eye candy?
Match the envelope clutch with some matching heels you will look ready for that interview while looking classy as hell.
Messenger Bag (Courier Bag)
“A type of sack, that is worn over one shoulder with a strap that goes across the chest resting it on the lower back.”
Simple to use and the classier version of a bag pack the sport brands such as Adidas and Nike certainly has taken advantage of the market available here.
