I feel like people buy and drool over the same bag brands & bag designs as they are “IT Bags” or a “Must Have”. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that and I do it too, since most of the time, those bags are well made, beautiful designed and drool-worthy (LV speedy, Celine phantom, Chanel 2.55, the list goes on… and they will forever be on my wish list).
However, there are those understated brands that I come across from time to time that should be brought into the spotlight. This past September, during my trip to NYC, I saw THE bag by Olivia Harris. I was familiar with that brand as it is a contemporary/edgy line by Joy Gryson (I previously wanted a zip pocket messenger bag by her but couldn’t get it anywhere!).
The Olivia Harris line is edgy, practical and UNIQUE, not to mention the fact that it’s of great value ($$). The great thing about understated brands is that you won’t see it on 5 other people on the street, which is why I love her designs even more. You can call it Your Own.
Here’s 6 of my favorites – can you guess which one I ended up getting?
