It’s that time of the year again when a couple of stores launch their new collections and with this in mind, you know summer is fast approaching – or is it here already? Hmm, the weather still seems indecisive. Which is not what we can say for the confidence and forcefulness of the spanking fresh bags at Coccinelle. As I made my way there I was mostly preoccupied about the parking, but a miracle happened and I found myself an ideal spot amid the frenzied activity. Lady Luck was not on my side however in attempting to take home a bag, as the detail I received in the post did not match the remaining bag. However, I was glad one of the 3 winning bags found a home with my blogger friend Mariel!
Onto the collection. What I like is the loyalty to the design and fine leather materials used. These criteria, combined with block colours this season, make for a flawless bag to go with practically any outfit. As one would say, let the bag make the statement for itself! This goes to show that whilst this utilitarian accessory does not require much thought or cause for discussion usually (some would argue there are far more important things in life!), the art with which these bags are made does underline the fine line between practicality and beauty in all things sartorial. Here are some images of the bags, but if you’re looking for timeless elegance, why not pop over to the store in Sliema?
