Wanted: A Breath of Fresh Heir

One of Vogue’s Top Accessory Trends of Fall 2016, heirloom purses are back, and in a big way. Marc Jacobs recently championed Victorian goth and showed a black micro bag with ballerina-print detail. Louis Vuitton sent a mini monogrammed bag with beaded fringe down the runway and at Ralph Lauren chain strap monogrammed velvet fringed pouches swung from models’ meticulously manicured hands. Roberto Cavalli girls threw embroidered and beaded denim bucket bags with studded leather fringe over their shoulders and ladies of Lanvin wrapped chain straps of shiny sparkling bucket bags around their hands and dangled the vintage-inspired beauties by their strutting sides.
