A Lesson In Colour-Blocking With CHARLES & KEITH’s Gabine Saddlebag
Meet the carryall that does it all.
February 17, 2021|
In this part of the world, things are gradually easing back into normalcy or at least a faint semblance of it. Scheduled returns back to the office, drinks till 10:30pm with the girlies after, dinners in groups of no more than 8. All reasons to finally shed the sweatpants and pyjamas that at some point have become second skin.
As we get reacquainted with real clothes again, getting dressed takes on a whole new post- quarantine sensibility. There’s a greater sense of ease, flair for colour, and a knack for versatility – girls just want to have fun again. The same rules apply in the handbag department. To plain ‘ol characterless carryalls, we say thank you, next!
Get acquainted with CHARLES & KEITH’s “Gabine” saddlebag – the epitome of a classic carryall redefined. Gentle curvature that speaks of distinct modernity; a bold buckle that makes a statement; and a refreshing colourway that pack on the visual appeal. Although one that stands out in a sea of nondescript everyday bags, the “Gabine” is still very much a carryall you can take everywhere from the office to dinner on the weekdays through to brunch on the weekends. And its roomy interior will fit your phone, keys, lipsticks, hand sanitiser…and the kitchen sink included.
At first glance, the “Gabine” in khaki might be an unusual choice for an everyday bag but trust us, it pairs just as well as monochrome and nudes do. And it works even better when you’re in the mood for colour. The corduroy pink suit, above, is a case in point. A great piece for subtle colour blocking, you alternatively match the bag with a brown tailored suit or a yellow co-ord if you’re feeling adventurous. If you’re all about rocking bold colours, a red and khaki combination is a sure head-turner.
Now, which will it be for you? We say let the colours take the wheel!
