This New Wandler Bag Falls Right In Line With The '90s Baguette Trend
Each season a new crop of bags are released, which can leave you wondering what styles to invest in for the months ahead. Do you go for a fashion-forward design and skip practicality? Or, opt for a functional purse that's less photo-worthy? Well, luckily you don't have to make any sacrifices when it comes to the new Wandler Georgia bag. The latest creation from the Dutch accessories label will let you have it all with its sleek, compact style that's both picture-perfect and versatile. Given how popular Wandler's previous bag styles have been among the fashion-crowd, there's no doubt this shape is going to gain just as much attention.
Founded in 2017 by Amsterdam-based Elza Wandler, her eponymous label has quickly gone from emerging brand to a household name with its highly-Instagrammed collection of bags and now shoes. It's easy to see why the style-set has gravitated toward the brand's bags, considering it continues to churn out clean, geometric silhouettes that often bring a dose of color.
As part of its Fall/Winter 2019 collection, Wandler has expanded its lineup of luxe handbags with the Georgia Bag — a new structured, boxy shape that feels like a modern take on the '90s baguette trend. However, this classic, rectangular silhouette can be worn a multitude of ways for day or night. Hold the bag by its detachable top-handle (you can also slip it on your shoulder, too), or wear it as a cross-body with its removable longer strap. Not to mention, you can go completely hands-free by removing the strap and transforming the style into a clutch for more formal occasions.
Fortunately, the bag comes in a range of colors and even a print, so you shouldn't have a problem finding one that works with your aesthetic. You can keep it simple with this wear-with-everything black bag with contrast stitching, $850, or this stylishly understated two-tone version, $910. Meanwhile, this fall-ready tan iteration and brown croc-effect style, also for $850, will pair up well with all your other rich neutral hues and bold jewel-tones.
Looking for something a little more eye-catching? Wandler is also serving up the Georgia Bag in a neutral zebra print for $945. The head-turning animal stripes combined with the bag's refined shape and minimal hardware make it a real statement piece. So, it should come as no surprise that it was already spotted being carried by the always-stylish Chloé Harrouche as well as Moda Operandi's Fashion and Buying Director, Lisa Aiken, during New York Fashion Week.
