Add Prints To Your Style With A Python Handbag
Sophisticated and utterly feminine, python hasn’t really ever gone anywhere – so don’t call it a comeback– but it certainly hasn’t enjoyed this level of popularity in years. Whether real or faux, the common thread in the reemergence of this luxe print is that it is mostly sported on pared back bags –especially clutches– with very simple hardware. Sleek and unfussy, the print itself is definitely the star of the show. While the most editorial attention has been paid to high energy, rainbow shades, we have a particular fondness for the nonchalant elegance of a softer natural palette (see Heidi Klum, above).
This Bottega Veneta shoulder satchel is a practical way to sport the trend during the day. Large enough for the essentials and then some, we love that the mustard gold is picked up in the model’s dress.
Heidi Klum knocks it out of the park with her relaxed, easy style, a look that is certain to influence our weekend wardrobe choices. When you’re this easy-breezy we suspect that you don’t need a lot of high maintenance items, making a clutch an appropriate daytime option. We’re working on it.
Prada‘s bright candy colours were a favourite among fashionettes this season and the house’s oversize clutch is really the aspirational marker of the season’s trend.
