TAKE SHAPE

What’s one trick for stylish but effortless everyday dressing? Mixing casual with dressy pieces. A fur coat with stilettos, a silk dress, and an alligator bag? No. A fur coat with a bandana, dirty Dr. Martens, and an alligator bag? YES.

As you may know, I’m all about contrast. It’s the best way to approach minimalist dressing. And having a versatile bag is a major key.

This Kalamarie bag has the alligator skin to compliment dressy, the clean leather to compliment casual, and the satchel shape to complement business formal. With a little removable clutch and shoulder strap, this Kalamarie bag can take shape to work with whatever look you’re going for. Talk about a chameleon!

    I love mixing luxury items with more casual pieces. It is such an easy way to transform the look of daily wear. The photos are quite impressive too — I love that they’re unconventional in that they’re taken in the setting of a fire escape :)
