Must-Splurge: Paco Rabanne’s Chain Link Bags
I featured Paco Rabanne’s Spring 2012 collection back in October and it truly was one of my favorites of the whole season. Manish Arora is really taking the brand to the next level and I am so excited to see the next collection.
In the meantime, I am coveting the brand’s handbags. Recreating the iconic and signature chain link bags that Paco Rabanne created in 1969, the styles are true arm candy and do not look like anything else on the market today.
The bags come in a variety of amazing textures from black mink to clear acrylic. The black mink version is my favorite, especially since winter has finally touched down in New York City. It is smaller than the totes I wear everyday to work (6.5″ height x 10″ width x 1.25″ depth), but it is such a statement piece that I would consider carrying less just to be able to rock it. You can wear it flat as shown above or you can adjust it, as shown in the feature image.
