    Default Bag Trend: The canvas shoulder strap

    January 29, 2008

    Bag Trend: The canvas shoulder strap
    A lot of designers this season are going through a sporty strap phase. Where instead of the usual leather or chain strap, the bags are topped off with a thick detachable cotton canvas shoulder strap. What do you guys think of it?


    When it comes to comfort, I’m not complaining. Especially when it comes to a day bag that might be on my shoulder for 4+ hours. Like for instance when you’re out on a shopping trip, you don’t want to carry a bag that’s uncomfortable on your shoulder or that will keep you fidgeting every 5 minutes to keep from sliding down.


    Pictured Above: Here we have a range of designer bags, which all come with this new comfy canvas strap accessory.
    > Furla Elisabeth Medium Shoulder Bag – Impressive purple beauty by Furla. Comes in croc-embossed leather in a hobo-shape style with a detachable canvas shoulder strap.
    Find it - $550

    > Marc Jacobs Cecilia Bag – Liven up your day look with this vivid papaya colored Cecilia. Dressed in the signature MJ quilting with gold hardware and detachable canvas strap.
    Find it - $1,2750

    > Marni Balloon Tote – No matter what anybody says, the shiny patent leather trend is not dead. Discover Marni’s hit, the inflated-looking balloon day bag. Dressed in crinkle patent and features double handles as well as a removable canvas shoulder strap.
    Find it - $1,260

    > Coach Heritage Stripe Swingpack – Meet the newest collection to the Coach brand, the Heritage Stripe. The swingpack is perfect for the minimalist and ideal for the traveler. The petite purse features the Coach signature fabric with a shoulderstrap that’s long enough to be worn over the shoulder or crossbody.
    Find it - $138

    > Stella McCartney Appaloosa Shoulder Bag – For the animal-loving readers, check out the Appaloosa. It’s a great lightweight option that’s simple yet stylish for everyday wear. Comes in the color soft stone with gold hardware and a removable shoulderstrap.
    Find it - $1,095

    Something about the MJ Cecilia is off to me but I like the Marni Balloon. I love it when bags come with optional shoulder straps. Even if I don't use strap, I like the way they look just hanging off the bag.

    I actually kinda like them... I'm not sure about the black ones with the black bags though, that does look a little weird.

    I totally agree. I think a nice leather or chain strap would make the bags looks so much nicer...

    I like the canvas shoulder strap.. but not all since some of them cut to my skin when they're too hard.

    I do like the canvas strap on some bags. The black strap is ugly though, it reminds me of something on a gym bag or my boyfriend's Xbox bag, lol.
