It’s pretty amazing to see how far an up-and-coming brand like Staud has grown, from its humble beginnings just 4 years ago, when it was created by Sarah Staudinger and George Augusto who co-founded the LA-based company back in 2015. Not only are they easy on the eyes (the bags, not the founders), but also come at rather affordable price points that won’t break the bank. Their popular silhouettes include the Moreau Bucket Bag, as well as the Shirley PVC Tote, but the smart duo is not just banking on their current successes, but pushing the boundaries further by creating even more lust-worthy pieces.
An all-new piece from their Spring-Summer 2019 collection includes the Lincoln Bag, which does look like everyone’s retro-inspired toolbox. Interestingly, it comes furnished with a compartmentalised tray that looks like what you’ll actually find in a toolbox and it’s perfect for keeping vanity essentials neat and organised, complete with a mirror on the inside of the lid.
Measuring 28.4 cm by 12.7 cm, you can also take the Lincoln Bag out with you on your daily adventures, considering it comes in a leather exterior and metallic hardware that’s a guaranteed head-turner. Or it could just sit pretty on your dresser and be your go-to whenever you’re looking for the day’s accessories.
Available in croc-embossed leather versions in Black, Brown or Tomato over at Staud’s e-store, they are priced at USD475 apiece, which is pretty reasonable. If, however, you prefer something in full leather, there’s the dual colour one over on MATCHESFASHION that’s priced at USD460.
