Spotlight On: Patent Bags!

'Tis the season to be Patent!

Patent, Patent, and MORE patent. Patent handbags seems to be everywhere! Patent leather, due to its high lustre, was a material that was reserved for Special Occasions' bags, Festive Season bags and Evening Bags. This trend has drastically, and is now used on day bags and casual bags like totes, shoulder bags and satchels. All the designers seem to be obsessed with Patent Leather at the moment, an abundance of which are being sent down the runway, whether it was last season or this season -- from the YSL 'Muse', Chloe's 'Betty' and Fendi's Filagree/Plexi 'B' Buckle Bag... to Jimmy Choo and even the Burberry Novacheck!! Patents are here to stay!

However, for our local Malaysian weather, Patent bags might not be a little tricky. Due to the heat, Patent bags may be caused to 'crease' and crack... and the turn-off is that you gotta keep them squeaky clean, otherwise your bag'll be covered in fingerprints!!

But they're so pretty and shiny that most of us Bag obsessed creatures are willing to be a little bit of a slave to the handbag, right? I admit that this applies to me. hehe. I don't really care about the disadvantages, especially when living in a country like Malaysia. I still LOVE patent bags! It's so glossy, how can anyone resist?

Yes, i love the patent bags, they are shining and so fabulous. The Jimmy Choo Patent bag is my favorite one. The blue color is perfect, it's luxury but not so much sharp.
