Handbag Spotlight: ALAIA Le Teckel shoulder bag /

Although the world of IT bags is fuzzy right now with so many styles being hot on the street, this shoulder bag, also classified as a satchel, from ALAIA, is starting to turn heads.

The Le Teckel handbag features double straps like a classic satchel, but in this case, they are long enough to wear as a shoulder bag. ALAIA created a style which is short on height, and long on length, creating a hot dog silhouette. They are not the only fashion house to create a handbag this season in this shape, there are others out there. That being said, the ALAIA Le Teckel shoulder bag is the hottest east/west satchel on the streets; making it the IT bag of the trend.

Did I say trend? Yes, yes I did. One could argue the beautiful craftsmanship of this bag is investment worthy, but let’s face it, this style is trendy and will be relevant for a maximum of three years, possibly a little bit less. If you don’t mind a good trend, you can purchase this bag and sell it after two years in order to maximize your return. Unless of course you love it, then keep it in your wardrobe forever.

This version of the east/west satchel is priced under $2500, but you can find versions higher than that, as well as priced much lower. There is a price point for everyone this season to be able to rock the east/west satchel trend. Love that!

If you are on social media, I am sure you have already spotted this beautiful, slouchy tote bag by The Row. The Margaux is a double handle tote, or satchel, which is made from the finest, slouchy leather and offers a soft, high-quality vibe. Love!

The Row Margaux is available in various sizes indicated by a number after the handbag name. 10 being the smallest, 15 is medium, and 17 is a large, travel tote size.

As much as I adore this beautiful investment bag, I cannot personally justify the price. If you can swing the price, invest in this bag! The Row Margaux is a fabulous investment purchase which will last a lifetime. The classic, double handle tote design combined with slouchy leather offers a timeless vibe and craftsmanship which will last through your retirement.

This handbag can be used as a work tote, a travel tote, or a tote for carrying a ton of stuff. haha If you have a lifestyle which requires the use of a spacious bag, this is the bag.

In addition to being a fabulous, timeless handbag, it is currently trending as the hottest IT bag of the moment. But, like the Givenchy Antigona, we hope to see The Row Margaux become a classic long after the hype fizzles out. While these transitions from IT status to timeless status are never for sure, there is a good chance The Row Margaux will make a smooth transition into the forever bag category.

What do you think of The Row Margaux? Is this beautiful handbag on your wish list? It is currently on my dream list. haha
