Sara Battaglia SS11

You will remember we first introduced Sara Battaglia back in May when I discovered her bag collection and Giulia slapped me in the back of my head for being so late, as she had been a fan for a while. Her SS11 line was full of colourful timeless bags fit for any age and style and appropriate for different occasions. Now she introduces her pre-SS11 collection, where Sara is mixing it up a little more. There are more satchels, clutches and messenger and tote bags for a modern hip woman aiming for effortlessness. Some new elements in a kind of art deco line have been introduce as decoration on the shoulder bags (in yellow at the top) more in line with the style of Sara's logo. Her signature bags are given a twist by playing with different colours in the layers of leather straps, which has an effect of earthiness and depth.
Check out the rest of the stunning look book on Sara's website. Just as she did before, she has modeled the pieces herself and I am loving the styling! You will also find a list of retailers where you can buy her bags, including Luisaviaroma's online shop. In addition, don't forget to check out her blog, where she shares personal pictures, press cut outs, inspiration and some of her new designs.
I'm off.

Such beautiful bags and ever so versatile! I love how the tan leather and satchel style have a vintage feel to them which is complimented by the fringing and gold chains. A bag designer to remember!
