Book Shaped

“Box Bags” are one of those revived and re-interpreted items that kind of sneak up on you. I can’t remember when they first came into fashion, when exactly they came back, or when I started wanting one . . .all I know is that I want one. Officially the designer most credited with bringing the shape back is Phoebe Philo of Céline, who resurrected the piece from the Céline archives. Of course Phoebe Philo, minimalist queen and girl-crush extraordinaire would make something so simple and so in-demand. Brands like Proenza Schouler  have created their own versions but I am especially partial to this vintage Gucci version from our Veteran store. This pebbled burgundy beauty is the ultimate blast from the past.
