Just “bag” one of those saddlebags!
Many of our fashion favourites actually have very practical origins, such as the precursors of today’s saddlebags which were used as bags for horse riders and attached to the saddle. These days, Hugo Boss, Chloé, Liebeskind Berlin and co. have taken inspiration from the original models and developed them further. They became even more popular with the 1970s revival, meaning that there’s hardly a wardrobe that doesn’t have one. Worn casually with a long shoulder belt across the upper body or with a colourful wide belt over the shoulder, saddle bags are available at fashionette in numerous versions. Saddle bags conquer our fashion hearts time and again: The classic leather models in black or brown are joined by pastel-coloured saddle bags by Chloé to create a summery kick of freshness. Consistently manufactured from high-quality leather, the designs are supplemented by gold metal clasps and chain handles. Together they put the icing on the cake of any outfit – and this is what the best looks look like ...
How to mix-and-match classical and fashionable saddle bags
The classic saddle bag is made of 1.5mm thick leather which is tanned and naturally coloured. Leather saddle bags have a lovely secondary effect: The character of the natural material increases as the bag ages. A simple shape with a large inside compartment and adjustable strap makes them into a timeless companion. The flap bag goes well with turn-up mum jeans plus légère shirts and tops perfectly. Designer saddle bags on the other hand, are true trendsetters that can be combined with many fashionable outfits. Liebeskind Berlin or JOOP like to use colour-contrasting shoulder straps and very straight shapes that fit perfectly with white blouses for your business meeting. Rebecca Minkoff, See by Chloé or Marc Jacobs do things differently: with fringes and studs they bring vitality to gorgeous boho looks.
