THE LITTLE BAG GUIDE - Episode 1: making the right choice

This time we are launching “The Little Bag Guide”, a new series of tips & tricks for finding that rare gem. Today we're getting the ball rolling with some tips for choosing the right bag. So grab your best pen: it’s time to take notes!

Choose according to your body shape and age

We often think that only clothes should be chosen according to one's body shape. Think again ! The choice of bag is also essential to flatter the silhouette. For example, if you are petite, choose a shoulder bag (like a baguette bag ) rather than a large model that accentuates your small waist. If you are curvy, choose a handbag or shoulder bag and avoid the backpack which adds volume.

The choice of your bag can also be made according to your age. Although there are no rules when it comes to fashion, it is rather rare for teenagers and mature women to have the same wardrobe. In terms of bags, the former will, for example, favor canvas shopping bags to carry their school belongings, while the latter will opt instead for durable leather bags.

In any case, whatever your final selection, your ideal bag will remain the one you choose while listening to your style... and your heart

Choose according to the scope

Crossbody bag, worn on the shoulder, carried in the hand or backpack... Each model has its own way of being worn! This determines the style you want to give to your outfit, while meeting practical criteria.

For adventure lovers and for those who like to take their entire house (or almost) with them, the backpack will be the perfect ally. For those who prefer to keep the essentials without clutter, this is the shoulder bag you should adopt!

And if you're undecided because you want to find a model that follows the hectic pace of your day... Don't panic, we have the solution: opt for the convertible bag ! Its modularity offers you several ways to carry it (on the back, by hand, on the shoulder, etc.) and thus adapts to all situations.

Choose according to the activity practiced

The way you carry your bag may be inherent to the activity you are doing. We agree, you are not going to carry your professional equipment in your travel bag... and vice versa!

Today there are ranges of leather goods specific to each activity of the day. For work, several business models can protect your professional belongings: A4-sized briefcases, tablets, 13, 15 or 17-inch computers... all you have to do is choose.

The same goes for leisure. Lovers of small or large discoveries will love multi-functional travel bags ; while sportswomen will rob the sportswear section with its fanny packs, backpacks and game bags.

Choose based on color

A practical bag is good, a practical and beautiful bag is even better! If you attach particular care to the aesthetics of your favorite accessory, the choice of color is essential. We agree, the total black look is a timeless, easy to wear, everyday or evening. However, colorful models are not left out: worn with sober outfits, they bring a touch of light and brighten up your look. Particularly popular in summer, they enhance, for example, little light dresses thanks to their peppy tones. Dare to use yellow, orange, sky blue, purple… And see life in pink!

Little tips for the road: lilac, lime green and beige will be the colors to wear this Spring-Summer 2023. We go for it with our eyes closed!

Choose according to the season

Last but not least : choose your bag according to the season in which you want to wear it – of course, the classics in your wardrobe (brown crossbody bag, black shoulder bag, etc.) can be worn continuously.

Autumn/Winter marks the drop in temperatures, but also the return of oversized sweaters. To warm the hearts and the body, nothing better than a handy shoulder bag that's easy to wear over your down jacket. In terms of material, choose durable leathers full of character for maximum effect.

Spring/Summer brings with it long evenings and fan-shaped toes: for walks along the beach, bring out the most original models (baskets, bucket bags, baguettes, etc.) in festive colors. Yes, in summer it's time to party and relax !
