The bag to have in summer 2008 was a Zac Posen Leather Zip Satchel (pictured top right). Not alone did he design Gwyneth Paltrow’s Oscar gown that same year, but the accomplished New York designer is equally capable of producing stunning handbags.
Now we are not suggesting that you go out and buy an IT bag every year, but the colour white from Posen’s bag has carried on into summer ‘09. A trend that is also big this year is fringe, and here we see actress Eva Longoria Parker rock the two trends sporting a white Gerard Darel fringe bag.
Anya Hindmarch at Kildare Village (Outlet)
If you opt for a white summer bag to go along with your white cropped jeans, you don’t have to spend a fortune on designer either. We recently discovered that Anya Hindmarch opened at Kildare Village where her amazing handbags are now selling with up to 60% discount. The British designer’s fans include Scarlett Johansson and Claudia Shiffer.
Pictured bottom, this Anya Hindmarch woven leather bag in white and blue makes any daytime outfit rock. An all white version of this woven bag has been reduced from €800 to €300 making Anya Hindmarch in Kildare Village definitely worth the trip.
Shoulder bags continued you can find some great deals on the high street too. Mock crocodile skin in patent is a bag style that is very current at the moment in black as well as white. We’ve scoured the shops to find patent mock croc in Miss Selfridge, New Look and Pennys (Primark) all for around the €25 mark.
Quilted white handbag (a la Chanel)
If you are searching for a smaller, clutch size white bag, a quilted bag with chain straps is a great option. Inspired by the original Chanel quilted chain handbag, the high street now offers superb lookalikes, our favourite being Urban Outfitters (€58) which has a gold chain handle to drape over your shoulder.
