Latest Obsession: The Céline Sangle Shoulder Bag

Other Brands

While helping my best friend look for the perfect non-traditional wedding look last weekend, I found myself in the handbag section of Barneys, as one does. She and I have similar taste in bags (for example, on this particular day, we were both carrying medium-size burgundy top handle bags with crossbody straps), and our attention turned to the Céline Sangle Shoulder Bag. She had considered getting one when she bought her last bag, and although I’ve always liked the bag in photos, this was my first experience with it in person. I was impressed.

The new version of the Sangle is particularly good because of its versatility: the bag comes with both the wide, short webbed wool strap the bag has always had, which is perfect for one-shoulder carry and distributes weight well–ideal for a sizable work bag. Starting this season, some versions also come with a thinner, longer crossbody strap in leather, which amplifies the already super-functional bag’s versatility and opens it up to consumers interested in a slightly more casual option on the weekends.

In all, the Sangle is a perfectly discreet work bag that looks expensive and luxurious but doesn’t scream a particular designer’s name at the top of its lungs, and the ample size, multiple interior and exterior pockets and interchangeable straps make it a solid choice for anyone looking for a good bag to take to the office. I didn’t have one on hand to try it, but I bet it would even fit a small laptop.

Buy through Céline or your favorite department store for $2,900.

Love It or Leave It: The Loewe Elephant Shoulder Bag

Other Brands

Loewe‘s animal-shaped coin purses and pouches have long been popular with shoppers, and it’s not rocket science to figure out why: not only are Loewe’s leather goods uniformly well-made, but the pouches take something that’s normally pretty boring and make it a lot more fun without impacting its practicality at all. On top of that, committing to a panda-shaped pouch, for example, feels less bold than carrying a larger one as a handbag. But if the bag version were exactly right, would you be up for it?

In the handful of seasons he’s spent at Loewe, Jonathan Anderson has continued to expand the brand’s existing profile as a favorite among fashion insiders. Much of Anderson’s work is inventive and fresh-feeling in a fashion landscape full of retro rehashes, but he does it in a way that doesn’t make Loewe’s pieces difficult to wear or use. The Loewe Elephant Bag is a prime example of that: it’s weird, but in a good and well-considered way, and it’ll do just as good a job carrying your stuff as any other small crossbody.

A multicolored-stripe elephant shouldn’t feel as restrained or as tailored as this one does, but somehow, it totally works for me. It’s be an adorable little weekend option, especially during warm weather. If you feel the same, you can pick it up for $1,290 via Net-a-Porter.

Either way, tell us what you think: do you love this bag, or would you leave it?
