Shearling has been popping up at fashion houses with increasing frequency. Not only is the material relatively lightweight in comparison to full leather, but its fun, furry texture is also perfect for the holiday season. Often seen on collars and lapels of menswear jackets, shearling is gradually becoming a favoured choice for handbags as well.
Jacquemus’ Le Bambidou, for example, is one that comes entirely covered in shearling. Lamb fur fully covers the 34 cm by 20 cm bag, except for the prominent gold-tone logo in the corner. Even the chunky chain-link shoulder strap wears shearling, so you can expect an added layer of comfort.
Another excellent point about Jacquemus bags lies in their simplicity. There’s no need for unnecessary distractions, and bigger designs are also well-compartmentalised for a good day out.
Lift the magnetic flap to find a card slot within the Le Bambidou, saving the need for a separate cardholder. Flip to the back and there’s an extra patch pocket for keeping extra essentials within reach.
Currently available at Jacquemus’ online store and authorised retailers, the Le Bambidou retails at EUR1290 (you might also want to check with CLUB21 locally to see what’s in stock). There’s Black, Brown, Green, Ivory, Light Blue and Pink, all coming in the standard size for the shearling flap bag.
