Happy Monday everyone!  Thank you for being with me today.  I’m so excited to introduce… the Rebecca Minkoff X Saks X Wendy’s Lookbook (that was long! =) ‘LA Love’ bag!  I was invited to collaborate with Rebecca Minkoff along side with Saks on her current ‘Love’ bag design by customizing it based on my inspirations from the city of Los Angeles, thus an ‘LA Love‘ bag.

To me, LA is where ambitious visionaries come to take risks and pursue their dreams.  To capture the spirit of LA, I wanted to use the color red.  Passionate and fierce, the crimson hue anchored the overall design.  Since red is such a statement color, I wanted to add elements of casualness by enveloping it with textured leather and pairing it with a guitar strap and gunmetal hardware.  Honestly, my favorite part is the guitar strap (inspired by the casual vibe and music scene of LA).  It makes the overall bag easy to pair with casual outfits like a graphic tee and boyfriend jeans, and dressy outfits such as a midi side-slit dress and tall boots.

I hope you like my take on the ‘Love’ bag as much as I enjoyed working on this project.  It was so fun working through the design details and meaningful to see ideas come to life.  Thank you again for being on this journey with me!  And special thanks to Rebecca Minkoff and Saks for this amazing opportunity and collaboration!
