Fashion First: The Brigitte Bardot Bag

 

 

Fashion Designer Bag we love

 

Always trying to be “fashion forward”, we must tell you about Lancel creating the Brigitte Bardot Bag.  For those of you who do not know this fashion and beauty icon, you must!  Bardot was a French naturelle beauty and nonconformist that had Hollywood in the palm of her hand during the early 60’s. She was a legend in beauty and fashion, so we just loved discovering the Lancel designer BB Bag they have created in honour of her. 

Lancel describes Bardot as “anti-conventional, archi-natural, too beautiful”  and we agree.  The tousled blonde remains the “absolute symbol of French Legerete”.  All of the fashions she launched are today’s more than ever; skinny, ankle length jeans and ballet “flatties” slippers-the jeans and shoes we all adore today! 

We love that this nonconformist went out “on the edge” with her wedding dress too.  She was the FIRST to dare wear a plunging neckline, wasp waist and cotton  pink gingham, yes gingham, dress on her wedding day.  Needless to say, it made the cover of every fashion magazine. 

Oh, Brigitte, thank you for making fashion daring, fun and timeless.  Thank you for allowing us to have sexy, tousled locks and making a blonde craze that never stopped.  Thank you for inventing the “smoky eye” with eyeliner extended into a defined almond shape and heavy lashes; something we have imitated, but never accomplished like you. Thank you for making St. Tropez a place we could read about, dream about and travel to. But most of all thank you for being yourself plus making your Hollywood era so much fun (47 films and 80 songs) .

The Lancel design team, has made your new bag just as we should expect.  The signature BB monogrammed charms, the satchel style (lined in no other than pink gingham) and the variety of color to make it exactly whatever we dare it to be.  Just like you; unexpected, dazzling and unforgettable!

PS Your handbag is beautiful and we would go out on a limb and pick the pink one.
