There’s nothing more fun than spending the afternoon among the newest range of handbags, more so when they include all the accessory trends you’re currently lusting over. So when I was invited over by POPxo (perks of being part of their blogger network!) to have a look at Caprese’s store to check out the newest Spring Summer 2015 Collection, I agreed in a jiffy! I spent an hour at the Prabhadevi store, going through the pastel, block and printed pieces, picking out my favourites. In between all the faux leather, zipper details and utilitarian cell phone pockets, I realised that this is a brand balances out the ratio between style and practicality – and for that, I gave them a major plus one in my mind. Little gold buckle accents, availability of size options (they have almost everything with choices between S/M/L) and having Alia Bhatt as their brand ambassador are some of the brownie points that they have rightfully earned.
Being an international brand that’s been brought to India by VIP, Caprese has studied the Indian woman’s choices and done a whole lot of research over their presence period in India through the last two years. While I went through the entire collection, I picked out my top five must-have styles without which I think it would be difficult for any woman to get through the sweltering summer; here’s what my list looks like:
On the go
This white and ink blue sling-satchel is the kind you’ve got to have when you know you’re out there running errands, or prefer holding your laptop and/or files in your hand(s). With the nautical feel that this bag brings out, I don’t see any reason on for someone to not love the fun vibe it exudes.
The perfect mint purse to complete your look, this shoulder bag is perfect to carry your brunch essential along with you: a lipstick, compact for touch up, a pair of sunnies and a small packet of tissues along with your wallet and portable cell phone charger.
Desk to dinner
One of the biggest problems that working women face is the lack of balance between work and personal lives. My own way of getting over this dilemma is to always make sure I have everything I’ll need trough the day and night with me – and the simple answer to that is a tote. This metallic tote is everything you’ll need to carry your stuff from that busy work day, to blending in with your night-out look. All you’ll need is a pair of heels, and your transformation will be complete!
Let’s talk business
Indigo blue is one of the go-to colours for all the biggest designers across the globe this season, and with fair reason, you should have your share of the shade, too. This pick of mine is something that will be perfect for a formal meeting, or that big business pitch you’ve been planning for a while. Personally, my favourite thing about it is that the neutrality of the colour will make it go well with every outfit.
I’m one of those girls that will easily pick out a bag for it’s plus size. Not having to lull around with my laptop hanging off my arm is a tempting thought, especially if I can find a bag this stylish that will fit everything right in. Another one that’s brilliant for it’s shade, I personally find these colours to be extremely utilitarian since I won’t have to keep changing my bag every other day.
