When Stella McCartney first introduced her Falabella chain-trimmed bag, it became an iconic staple of the tough-girl meets minimalistic trend. The juxtaposition of the hard chain against the soft leather was unique to its kind, causing Fashionista’s everywhere to swoon over this coveted bag.
This Fashionista works her jean shorts (aka “jorts”), with an oversized red sweater and combat boots. The combination of the three alternative meets grunge pieces emulates a carefree style that makes the perfect spring day ensemble.
However, what truly stands out and completes her rocker-chic appeal is the chain-trimmed bag. The oversized black leather purse is an ideal day and night bag, as it coordinates with a wide range of outfits, is appropriate for day and night and can hold more than the normal amount of items. By accessorizing with this bag, this Fashionista establishes herself as a style maven, with a keen sense to what’s in, what’s out, and more importantly, what works for you.
Spotted: Although chained handbags revert our fashion-oriented minds to quilted Chanel bags (and for us modern Fashionistas, even McCartney's Falabella), designers from Proenza Schouler to Givenchy to Moschino all decided to link up their purses. Adding a chain embellishment to neon leathers, sultry snakeskins and even quilted tweed, this simple yet serious splash of metallic adds that punk meets prep infusion.
