    Default Perforated Handbags

    While browsing the web looking at handbags (what else, right?) today, I started to notice something odd. There are a lot of perforated handbags floating around right now. Is this a new trend or something? If so, I don't think I received the memo. I guess when I think about perforated bags, I flash back to Louis Vuitton's perforated collection from a few years ago. There weren't too many perforated bags to speak of after that. Now they are suddenly popping up everywhere. What gives? Oh well, I suppose I can give this trend a chance. After all, some of the styles might actually be cute. Just be careful though. I think this is a very tricky trend to pull off. Bright colors or bright white keep this look fresh. I picked out a couple pieces that I like, just so you can see what I'm talking about. Enjoy!


    Furla Perforated Brooklyn Bag
    You don't see Furla too much anymore, but this designer really seems to be making a comeback. This shoulder bag is nice. I like how it is slouchy at the top, but it still has a somewhat structured bottom. The tiny perforations are perfect for someone wishing to try this trend without getting their feet too wet. The crisp white is great too, pairing nicely with just about anything.
    retails for $498


    Rebecca Minkoff May May Crossbody
    This little bag is so cute, but I probably wouldn't expect less from Rebecca Minkoff! All her bags are cute! What I like about this particular piece is the wider perforated pattern, which was arranged as diamonds rather than squares. The bold hardware is a nice touch too. Plus I love the pretty seafoam green!
    retails for $350

    It's back! The perforation trend. Some bags it works for me, but for most it doesn't. ie. Balenciaga City - I prefer the hole-less.

    I agree with Jennifer, the whole perforated look only works for certain bags. I really love that Furla bag, but I'm not too crazy about that Rebecca Minkoff one. I think the holes just make that bag a little too busy.

    I like the RM. It's really cute. I also like the wallet (for him) I pictured in the blog post.
