With just about everyone launching their own bag collection these days, a true accessories designer is a real diamond in the rough. Enter Hillary Taymour, owner and designer of L.A. handbag line Collina Strada.
Collina Strada was launched in Fall 2008, with a focus on making interesting yet functional bags for women on the go. Fast-forward two years later, and the line has crafted out it a small following for its architectural, intelligent and sustainable bags. Collina Strada bags combine vintage and modern style while using high-end fabrics and tailoring. Each bag is constructed of eco-conscious materials in New York City.
The Victorian bag stands out from the rest of the bucket-style bags out there, thanks to its unique contrasts: light vs. dark, hard vs. ethereal, vintage vs. distinctively modern. Set against a taupe canvas body, adorned with a faded floral pattern, the Victorian features leather layered trim in a diamond shapes. The same black leather is used on the drawstring and handle.
This bag is perfect for all occasions, from throwing all of your items in during the day to dressing up at night. Additionally, the combination of light and dark colors help it seamlessly transition between seasons.
The bag retails for $350 at Need Supply Co.
