Our spring summer 2012 line sheets are now available for preview. We will add all the new styles to our website over the coming ays so you can order your favourite colour in advance and have it delivered early next year. The Cannes shoulder bag is the first to go up, here.
Disclaimer: this is not the BE official model shoot, it is just me on my blog showing how the bags hang on a real person.
Here is the link to the full SS12 line sheet: http://www.youblisher.com/p/209746-BELEN-ECHANDIA-SS2012/
Every day for the next 6 days we will upload informal pictures of each new style, discuss each one in detail and show how it hangs and can be worn. I took some pictures whilst previewing the new collection, so you can see how each one looks on a person of average height (5ft 5″ to be precise). Today’s first entry is the Cannes Shoulder Bag (full size) in whiskey chevre.
My first thought when I tried on the first prototype of this bag empty was that the rolled handles , which I designed for comfort, might fall off my shoulder. But as soon as I put in my wallet and cell-phone, they stayed put very comfortably. My second thought was – This bag is amazing! The Cannes is a lightweight bag. We made the handle drop long enough to fit very comfortably on the shoulder. You can open and close the side pockets whilst the bag is still on your shoulder, which is useful if you need your phone or something else close to hand. The front pockets are more for decoration, but they are also useful and deep enough to fit a phone or a couple of small items.
You can cinch in the sides of this bag with the drawstring, but this time from the inside of the bag instead of the outside. The bag also has two magnets, making it a very secure style. The Cannes is also really comfortable when worn crossbody. The handles fold down very easily and they don’t look at all awkward. As you can see, the bag is quite deep but moulds softly against the body.
The Cannes is available for SS12 pre-order in chocolate matte and whiskey matte calfskin as well as sand and whiskey chevre. If you would like to pre-order it in a different colour, please ask about the specific colour you want and we may be able to help.
