Fringe With Benefits

by The Zoe Report

Last week, we showcased a roundup of our most-wanted bright bags for spring, but we understand that big color isn’t for everyone. If you’re more of a neutral girl, the new season will not find you empty-handed. Straightforward in shade while still packed with personality, Bottega Veneta’s Intrecciato Nappa Vulcana Bag acts as the ultimate inspiration for your next mainstay carryall.

Fringe is having a major renaissance for spring (not that the fetching detail ever really went away) and this prepossessing purse is just one strong testament to the trend. Constructed in the Italian label’s signature intrecciato woven leather with a bundle of tassels trimming the top, it will lend plenty of character to one’s warm-weather wardrobe. Carried on the runway in both nero black and shadow grey, the bag’s beauty was lost by no one. Smitten with Bottega Veneta’s style, but not prepared to part with a chunk of your savings? Check out Steve Madden’sFringe Tote to capture a luxury-like look for less.
