We adore Zac Posen and have been disappointed by the lack of drool worthy bags from him in the past few seasons. Luckily for us and for his bag fans; it seems Zac has found his groove (or a new accessories designer) for 2009! The eye popping- attention getting “Carine Lock” bag in bold magenta (Sasha got me using this word and I can’t stop saying it! Try it and see what I mean– “Ma-gen-ta”. Nice huh?) is a simple flap bag at first glance but look closer. The dangling chain ‘lock’ is a delicate version of his signature “nut” hardware. I know it looks complicated but don’t worry about functionality– the lock is merely decorative. Front flap actually opens with magnetic closure. I adore this color (as you may know by now, I chose the magenta YSL platforms!) and the distressed leather makes it casual and funky. I am starting to scare myself, I’ve been obsessed with color of late and fear I will end up looking like a clown come Spring! Zac Posen Carine Lock bag 15″x11″ $1,450 here.
