Bag Thursday: Simple Pleasures

yslroadySleek and simple silhouettes the Roady bags are. Designed by former creative director of YSL, Stefano Pilati, it instantly became a celeb hit. Katy Petty, Blake Lively, the Olsen sisters and Leighton Meester are just some of tinsel towns residents that have been spotted with the bag. Its hobo design makes for a seriously functional addition to your arm; easy access and roomy storage spaces are a few of the practicality credentials it boasts.

AW09 was the hobo’s inaugural show. “I have to reflect the times, and this reallyis my mood,” said Stefano Pilati of the collection. The impact of the resized economy, which had scattered much of Paris Fashion Week to grungy suburban venues, is definitely reflected in the bags design; a perplexing range of leathers in saturated colours and exotic skins (like our Roady, which is designed in brown leather exterior and stingray top handle), plus the hollow body, which gives an black-hole-type-feel to the inside of the bag. The bag has also been realised with a boho-chic luxe twist: beautifully braided details dress up the sides of the bag.

Whilst the Roady may range in its colours and textures, its shape is that of an unmistakable one. It’s not easy for a bag to boast A-lister status with such simplicity, a but that just happens to be what’s achieved its success!
