A new Wishlist Wedednesday , a new bag (that could be the title to my autobiography – ” So many bags, so little money”). And instead of steering away from the danger zone and guard my wallet with all I have, what do I do. I add more fuel to my obsession and fall in love with this German stunner (a contractio in terminis, I know!).
Inspired by one of the hottest cities of the decade, the name says it all. The BOSS Berlin Bag is a sleek, minimalist, elegant masterpiece, just the way I like them. When it comes to bags, I’m not one for fringes, tassles, prints, outer decorations or crazy shapes, and the German prediliction for function over form seems to have met it’s match in this stunner. The German capital is known as the top destination for art and culture, where fashion meets passion, creativity and style, all whilst trying to streamline it to fit that well known German no frills aesthetic. Prime example: the envy-inducing Hugo Boss Instagram account.
The first BOSS bag designed by the BOSS Womensear new creative director, Jason Wu, is the perfect marriage of his New York refinement and elegance and the brand’s German minimalism and functionality, all the whilst staying true to European high end workmanship. Available in three shades of the finest calf leather (dark red, brown and black) and three sizes (small, medium and large), the sleek outside is not representative for what you suppose to be an equally slick inside. Instead of one big, bowling bag-like single pocket, it is perfectly in tune with the moder day woman’s multitude of needs, with several pockets, big and small. Add a detachable shoulder strap to the 2 handles and you have another proof of it’s versatility!
Now, is it too soon to start working on that birthday-wishlist?
