We have been singing SANG A‘s praises for years, but her recent feature in WWD solidifies our opinion of the designer as a major player in the bag business. Faithful to sexy exotics for the past five years (since she launched her line in Spring 2006), Sang A Im-Propp’s skin-centric designs have spell-bounded us, thanks to her unique point of view. She is, hands down, one of the most interesting and creative designers out there. And now SANG A just got even more enthralling.
Hefty prices may have deterred bag snobs in the past, but that’s about to change. As of this spring, 60% of her line will consist of arresting leather bags, priced at an approachable $495-$995. Best of all, she’s offering up some of her most sought-after signature styles in the form of easy, no-fuss leather. Like the Pop, a slouchy, oversized day bag you will use to death made over in laser cut leather; or the sharply geometric and slightly rock ‘n’ roll Flash clutch and the most unusual clutch for the bunch– A Deux in Chambray sand blasted leather. Expect the palette to be an equally democratic mix of neutral and electrifying: red, black, taupe, lavender, and light blue.
Major expansion by the one of the top style innovators to watch (have you seen her Geo shoulder bag?! It’s smarter than some people I know! http://www.bagsnob.com/2011/10/sang-a-geo-shoulder-bag-its-cool-to-be-brainy.html) – I know I can’t wait to get my hands on these spring bags.
Look out for the collection, set to hit trend-hubs like Kirna Zabête, Scoop, and Kisan, as well as the SANG A website.
