The utopian Victroian era has us romanticizing farmcore and countrycore fashion, with lacy high-waisted corsets, puffed sleeved baby doll dresses, descant jewelry, outrageous hairstyles, velvet outerwear capes, long ball gown gloves and more which give fashion lovers much needed outfit inspirations, aside from the typical work or leisure wear.
Yes, they have the glamor, the extravagance, and the obvious eye candies but one rare gemstone the show is missing are bags - specifically leather bags! These classic, trendy, timeless fashion staples pieces with its neutral earthy tone colors, will fit right in with the High Regency aesthetics. Crafted with multiple layers of thickness and textures to create a natural resistance to water and retain its strength, sturdiness and durability, which make it an important feature especially those characters who happen to casually slip or fall into fountains and/or lakes.
They could opt for faux synthetic bags but why would they want to anyway? It just ends up snapping, or breaking apart into pieces, staining high quality clothing, discoloring after four uses or transforming into a whole different type of bag than originally purchased for. Plus, they’re way too bougie for that. period. All the Bridgerton characters, especially the Featheringtons, would go over the moon for these Bagwerk bags; if they can invest in superb gowns for all their exquisite tea parties, luxurious debutante balls and affluent equestrianism, they’d proudly Invest in well-crafted leather handbags - they were made for this era! So here’s our take on which purses Bridgerton characters would wear this spring 2022 based on their outfits and personality.
Continuing on with our mini series, we’re starting off with Queen Charlotte. She spends most of "Bridgerton" Season 2 scheming and plotting a way to discover Lady Whistledown's true identity, but despite her vast resources and creative methods, she still gets it wrong. As she pursues this cat and mouse game with Lady Whistledown, her style embodies the show’s great wealth more than any other character in “Bridgerton,” as her costumes include heavily designed skirts, heavy embellishments, oversize wigs and other regal elements like zebras and dogs. Favoring purples, blues and yellows tones showcases her royalty, superiority, nobility and power.
She doesn’t need an overly large bag to fit all her needs, because she’s got butlers, servants and maids to fetch her anything she wants. We totally see her stashing away her notes on Lady Whistledown and mini dog treats in the Pascale by Aunts & Uncles. This mini purse features a large main case with zipper attached with magnetic enclosure, adjustable guitar like-straps, concise, clearly half-moon shaped structure, round side wedge, gold metallic patterned lining, and a complementary pouch bag. In solid polished premium semi-vegetable tanned leather and chic dark maroon, this mini tote will boost her elegant Queen-regal vibes.
Lady Danbury, is the true embodiment of regal badass. Yes, she’s responsible for helping Simon pick up the pieces of his past and influencing him to become the Duke he was made to be, which shows off her softness and maternal instincts. But don’t be fooled, her piercing eyes and strong posture shows off assertiveness, fierceness, intelligence and power, despite her disability. She’s definitely a character you don’t want to mess with or the backup you’d like to have in your corner when someones trying to mess with you.
Lady Danbury’s regal style was continued in “Bridgerton” season two, with high collared capes, top hats, intricate lace designs and still favoring satin dresses and hues of burgundy, purple and blue. She definitely needs a purse that would compliment her personality and wardrobe without outshining her demeanor and that’s the Esme by Aunts & Uncles. This bag features a hand carry strap, adjustable shoulder strap, monochrome woven webbing front design, multiple compartments, floral interior lining and chrome-free tanned, biodegradable.soft sheepskin leather.
Lady Violet Bridgerton, The Bridgerton matriarch played a larger role in season two, helping her son, Anthony, on his quest for a wife, healing after his father’s passing and looking for love rather than fulfilling his duties. Like her children, Lady Bridgerton sticks with pastel blues, lavender and rose tones with beautifully subtle floral designs and minimally embellished dresses to showcase her maturity over her young daughters’. We see her rocking the Sugar Quilt by Aunts & Uncles. This mini clutch features main cases with zipper, removable and adjustable shoulder strap, woven quilt pattern on the front and geometrical interior lining and semi-vegetable tanned, washed, premium cowhide leather.
