    Default Lauren Merkin Margot Shoulder Bag

    Lauren Merkin Margot Bag.jpg

    Wow, Lauren Merkin, where have you been? Yep, I remember this designer from way back when. I remember loving her simple clutches that were easy on the eyes and on the bank account. But then the novelty wore off. As much as I love a good envelope clutch, it just sort of got old after awhile. So I moved on to other things and haven't paid much attention since. Then I saw this Lauren Merkin Margot Shoulder Bag and my interest in this designer was suddenly rekindled.

    Lauren Merkin is no stranger to embossed leather and this bag has a combination of lizard embossed and smooth calfskin. But that isn't what caught my attention. The bright kelly green is what drew me in first. I mean, who doesn't love a fun color like kelly green? It looks gorgeous next to the contrasting cream too. The color isn't the only thing I like about this bag though. The cutout pattern on the flap really calls to me. This is going to sound silly, but the green triangles remind me of cute little trees. And, oddly, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You know, that feeling of "nature" without it actually being a woodsy looking piece. The fact that this is a shoulder bag and not a clutch is special too. Lauren Merkin is known for clutches, but this designer does produce some shoulder bags as well. This bag isn't big, but I think it would be cute for those casual days when you don't need to carry a lot.

    Cute but not really my style.

    This bag was made in collaboration with Lauren Moffatt. Some info via Anthropologie:
    Lauren Merkin creates sturdy, do-it-all handbags for city girls on-the-go; Lauren Moffatt is celebrated for her whimsical prints, edgy tailoring and vintage-inspired pieces. Put these two talented NYC-based designers together in a studio, and what do you get? A new collection of handbags, as durable as they are stylish, to be carried frequently and admired constantly. This preppy, reptilian satchel swings from office to evening on a pop of color.
