THE HARD STUFF
Bags for Cruise/Resort 19 update with all kinds of fresh hardware applications. There are heavy chains in brass or matte black, carabiner hooks, metal zips and pyramid studs. A round link is looped through a heavy silver grommet for the season’s all-important belt bag. Convertible handles are key for all silhouettes, from neat shoulder-bags to sleek backpacks. Jacquarded logo tapes work as zipper pulls, adding an industrial feel. For a more luxurious take, there are ornate brass medallions or a heavy brass bar closure.
