IT BAG ALERT, THE SADDLE BAG
The saddle bags of the past were originally designed for military dispatch riders. They have that unmistakable crescent shape, which is actually quite feminine in my opinion. Along with today’s messenger bags, the newest saddle bags are a perfect example of a designer mixing form, function, tradition, and ingenuity
The cross-body bag has reigned supreme for the past few years, but they might need to move over a spot or two to make room for their lovely sisters!
The Chloe Drew bag has surpassed all other saddle bag designs in my mind. There are two different sizes, and neither are too small. This small version is quite literally the perfect size for a small bag. There are so many different variations and colours. Chloe nailed it!
The Drew in a lovely wine shade for Fall/Winter.
Metal embellishments make this Drew a statement piece that is trendy, yet will stay a classic.
Multi coloured python print is right on league with the past seasons lingering boho prints.
A little more minimalist than the Drew, this grey Marcie is a great everyday neutral.
Overlapping pieces of leather on the flap give this one a modern and classy look.
This is such a great deal right now, I believe this colour is from the Spring collection.
Classic black with the trendy new black hardware.
I have been seeing a ton of laser cuts in bags lately. Tory Burch did some lovely ones this past Spring and Summer. The laser cutting does tend to have a warmer weather vibe to it, but this bag proves the trend can go either way.
Tom Ford, need more words be spoken?
There is certainly still a western vibe to some of the latest Fall and Winter collections. Tons of suede, fringe, and crops of riding boots. This Tory bag would go nicely with suede.
This is a slightly pebbled leather, and I love Tory’s pebbled leathers. They are soft and well made. The tassel gives this one just enough flair!
Have you jumped in the saddle bag yet?
