While the first signs of spring may not be outside, I have been looking to designers for my first signs of spring as many are releasing their S/S 2014 collections. One of my favorite accessories and leather brands, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie released a new collection that is fresh and vibrant with bright colors perfect for the upcoming season.
If you are not familiar with the brand, it is growing in popularity and can be found a major department stores. For me, the brand has a clean, refined, classic aesthetic that can be seen in each bag. The founders implement unique marketing concepts such as their Alpine Lodge at Pitti Uomo and draw their inspiration from interesting places. For the S/S 2014 collection, inspiration was drawn from an artist who spends half of their time in an apartment in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood and the other half in a serene glass house by the Baltic Sea.
Blues are reminiscent of the sea while bright reds, yellows, and greens remind us of an artist's drafting table. Signature styles will be in the collection as always, such as the O'Hare shopper tote but updated with new fabrics such as rubberized leather and woven fibers.
I am hoping to add a new, vibrant bag to my collection for the season. Have you been finding new favorites for spring and summer?
