30 Mar Bags by House of Dagmar
When I was a lawyer I always dressed formal and elegant. But now that I have changed my career-path, I tend to dress more casual. However sometimes I long to dress like the older days: high heels, high waisted skirt, a white blouse and – of course – a statement bag!
This bag stole my heart as from the moment I set eyes on him. It has all the features of the perfect shopper! Because of the use of the material, faux-leather with black leather finishing, this bag is super light and because of its size I can take along all my essentials: my laptop, purse, make-up bag, brush, water, camera, etc. The print is playful, chic, timeless, trendy and refined. It does remind me of the typical clean Scandinavian designs. And that makes perfectly sense as this bag is by Dagmar, a Swedish fashion label that has been set up by three sisters driven by their passion for fabrics and design. Their grandmother, named Dagmar, was their mutual role model. After they all had learned the basics of fashion at different fashion houses, they decided to set up their own fashion company in 2005. House of Dagmar, that currently has a pop-up store at De Bijenkorf, was already known to me for their eccentric & sophisticated apparel, craftsmanship, art deco prints and feminine sensuality in their creations.
This white bag forms part of the first accessory collection by the House of Dagmar, named as The White Accessory Collection, which is a limited edition designed and created for Spring 2015. This collection consists of this shopper bag, a weekend bag, a bucket, a make-up bag, a mini bag, a wash bag and a wallet. Some of these bags are also available in a fashionable brown and trendy burgundy color. These accessories will soon be available at Harrods, Harvey Nichols en Net a Porter but you can take a closer look at the collection online. Or just contact Are you Swedish? if your want more information. So tell me, which model would you choose?!
