Trapeze Totes – slow trend?

28 Jan

Hello Style Lovers!

If, like me, you are subscribed to the usual fashion suspects (Net a Porter, Savoir Flair, My Wardrobe, Vogue…etc…) then you will surely have been urged to ride the “new” trend for Trapeze Totes…

They are out in force this season, with options from most of the top designers… I smell a fashion rat… why now? Why all at once? Is the fashion industry really so commercially trend-led, even at this level?

It’s just, it seems a little late coming. The YSL Downtown bag, which I wanted so so bad (in ostrich), was touted around town by the likes of Mossy back in 2008 already…

So why did it take so long for the trend to be picked up by other designers?

For me, trapeze totes are gorgeous – the style is so cool it’s hot! But I’m wondering what went on here and why YSL was so far ahead of the curve?

The mysteries of modern living.

Here’s my pick of the new trapeze totes… including my FAVOURITE by Ellie Saab:
