Former pop star turned fashion mogul, mother of 4 and wife to one of the world’s most desirable men, it’s no wonder that her bags are just as perfect as she is. From her shoulder slings to shopper totes and even clutches and SLGs, most everything she creates embodies the same consistent vision of style and timelessness that’s crafted to the highest standards in Italy.
Take her namesake bag, the Victoria, for example. Her take on the bulbous handbag that’s topped with short top handles, it’s stiff and structured (much like her cheekbones) that won’t look out of place in the boardroom. And then there’s today’s bag of the day, the Soft Victoria (GBP1500 and now available via Net-A-Porter), which is everything like the Victoria except for the fact that it’s made more slouchy and relaxed.
Crafted in beige-coloured leather (she named it Powder, by the way) in both buffalo and lambskin leathers, the 33 cm by 28 cm bag sports both patch and zip pockets, is fully lined in canvas and features leather extensions on both sides with clasps to ‘hide’ its contents, as well as an additional clasp on the top for added security.
Finished with pale gold hardware that is as minimalist as it gets, this is one bag for the woman who’s poised, polished and confident in her own skin. Much like Victoria herself.
And if you’re a #fanboy like me, do note that Victoria Beckham will be in Singapore next Monday (12 May 2014) on the invite of multi-label powerhouse On Pedder to launch her exclusive line of bags and sunglasses. I see a lot of pink, and I see a lot of pretty, so stay tuned for more updates.
