After our first part of the Big Bag Dictionary (over here if you missed it), it is time for the second and last part. Don’t forget the cheat sheet if you have forgotten the first part or if you want to look back once in a while. You can find it at the bottom of this page or on my Pinterest page. Enjoy and stay tuned for much more leather and style posts this Thursday and the rest of 2017!
Laptop Bag: A bag often to protect and carry your laptop and the laptop accessories.
Lady Dior Bag: When visiting Paris Princes Diana fell in love with the ChouChou (favourite in French) bag of Dior. As a tribute to the Princess of Whales two years later Dior named it the ‘Lady Dior bag’, a true it-bag.
Messenger bag: a typical type of bag used to carry the luggage of bike messengers. The bag has often a rectangular shape and is worn with a shoulder strap across the body.
Minaudiere: a small firm handbag without any straps or handles. The bag is often closed with a kiss-lock and decorated with (precious) stones.
Paper bag: a bag trend that doesn’t exist that long, but includes leather bags with the look of an old-fashioned paper (shopping or lunch)bag.
Pocketbook bag: a bag which was used as a bag, as small as your ‘pocket’, to carry a small pocketbook for little notes (and inspiration of course), overall with a strap over the shoulders.
Quilted bag: especially famous since Chancel designed the first quilted bag the 2.55 Though the definition is as the name says a bag made of quilted leather.
Round bag: gosh, these names are all really straight forward, so is this one. A round bag is a real round bag, wich can be worn with a long strap over the shoulder, as a clutch or as a handbag.
Shopper: and we just keep going… a shopper is a bag especially for doing groceries and to carry all your purchases during your shopping streak. So in most of our cases, it should be very sturdy and has overall two long straps to carry it over your shoulder.
Satchel: most people with think with this bag of their old school bags, carried over their shoulders, with a flap closed with two buckles.
Sling bag: you can have two definitions of a sling bag, when you are a photographer you will know these as a bag with one end of the strap attached to the top and the other to the bottom of the bag, though in other terms it could also be a bag with no structure, you can just sling on your shoulders and put anything in it.
Tote: a medium to a large simple bag. It has overall two straps and the top is open.
Wristlet: shorts strap worn across the wrist attached to a small handbag, resembling a bracelet.
Weekender: a bag as big as you need to carry all your belonging for a weekend away. For example to spend Christmas with your family.
Concluding, this brings me to, how was your Christmas? I hope you have all enjoyed all the company, food and maybe even some Christmas presents! Though if you are also luckily enough to have at least one hole week left of holiday. So I say it is time for some DIY (like my Christmas bag, which can also function as a New Year Party Bag here and on my Instagram for the final product), the preparations of our new year resolutions and of course a flashback of the year 2016.
