Mulberry Willow Leather Tote And Iconic Bags

Going Back in Time

I may not have been around for the Swinging ‘60s (I’m not that old!), but there’s a lot to love about the generation – Twiggy, white go-go boots, Balenciaga, the Beatles, Catherine Deneuve in Belle du Jour, and of course, bags! This was the decade when women finally broke out of the tweed jacket/chain bag combo and embraced their personal style. See which iconic pieces they did it with…Mulberry Willow Leather Tote

Mulberry’s Willow is the ultimate office to evening accessory – namely because it’s two in one (a work tote and an envelope clutch)! Sometimes a bag needs more flash for me to fall in love, yet here the function is what has me oohing and ahhing. Bring the tote to work, then at the end of the day, remove the front pouch with a couple of quick zips and you’re ready to play. It’s not one of those tiny, useless pouches, either – the generous size makes it a great choice even for daytime. Zipper edges give the clutch a unique look on its own, but keep in mind that you can’t carry the tote without it reattached (it would look like something’s missing). Since Kate Moss debuted the first Willow last year, it’s become available in a number of delicious hues, and I’m going with mushroom. The neutral will look great year-round, making an already versatile bag even more wearable! Going Back in Time

Psychedelic Pucci Bag
You didn’t need to take LSD in the ‘60s to have a psychedelic experience – you just needed to buy a Pucci ! Rainbow velvet bags are hard to come by these days, so for a Frugal find, try Moyna’s colorful sequined clutch.

Courrèges Mod Bag

André Courrèges helped propel the Mod trend to full-on mania with his 1964 “Space Age” collection – think bright colors, geometric shapes, and PVC mini skirts (he and Mary Quant both claim to have invented the mini!). This orange tote is an update on one of his best-selling bags from the time. For a modern take on the style, check out Furla’s rubber satchel.

Mary Quant Flower Bag

This was the flower power generation – blossoms flourished all throughout fashion. The daisy was Mary Quant’s logo, but Betsey Johnson (herself a member of Andy Warhol’s Factory scene) is also no stranger to florals. Satisfy your inner flower child with her Having a Field Daisy bag.

Paco Rabanne Chainmail Bag
Chainmail may not be the most sensible thing to design a bag out of, but the success of Paco Rabanne’s Le 69 – named for the year it was released – was undeniable. If it’s a little too hefty for you (in price and weight), Laura B has a Disco bag alternative with some added python for good measure.
