Leather bag models the female soul
Take a woman sporting a soft calfskin leather shoulder bag in Prussian with a tan strap and I’ll show you a girl with a sense of fun, stylish yet practical as she hitches the bag under her elbow and hops onto a tram car in Vienna. She can hug the bag on her lap as she takes in the ambience of the locals and tourists around her. A bowling bag on the other hand, with a long adjustable strap, is worn by a ‘need to have it all with me’ friend who always has the tissues handy, the lip balm and other needful things that you love her for. Her bag is in pink with a decorative padlock to keep her circle of friends safe.
Can a leather bag be the holder of a woman’s soul?
Leather bag models are a visceral message of good taste for the owner; her branding signal, her texture, sense of touch, smell and the right feel: the bag is her extension into the world. Okay, some bags don’t shout out the qualities of the soul to you but they can whisper it. Take a genuine calf leather handbag in Tan with a single handle. It is plain, come on, it is so plain! Okay, but it does murmur of her soul. This woman is clear, practical and acetic; don’t mess with her, yes have fun but, be genuine, the bag intimates.
Like OK, I’m a man, what do I know?
We men can delight in bags too now. I have been browsing the Florence Leather Market website and the bags are irresistibly female. Even so, ‘man bags’ are becoming more cross gender and less obviously boring now; by that I mean that styling is more important to us chaps, with colour, shape and texture allowing softer and gentler themes. I guess I could get away with a backpack “Cinzia” in smooth calfskin, maybe because I am living in France now. It’s a pleasant bag! I can feel its texture by looking at the website. Hey, no one is chained to their bag; we can grow with our bags, the style, colours, stitching and straps are a mirror for our soul as we develop through our lives. But yeah, I guess if you tell me what bag you wear, I could tell you who you are, even though it may be a little too trite a description for a sophisticated woman like you.
