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 out with our favorite character plot twist of season one, Miss Penelope Featherington. As she continues to grow her gossip empire, her style remains relatively the same with fanciful costumes of a-line tulle dresses designed with intricate floral embroidery and favoring bright yellow and orange hues to exude her cheerfulness, optimism, boldness and mysteriousness. Oddly enough, her color choices fit accurately well with her wallflower personality and alter ego, Lady Whistledown.
She definitely needs a purse that’s spacious, eye-catching but yet subtle to hold all her little secrets, gossip and new column ideas. We totally see stashing away her notepad and escaping the parties to write her next scandalous piece with the Fleur by Aunts & Uncles. This mini purse features a large main case with zipper attached with magnetic enclosure, adjustable straps, concise, clearly defined bag body with nostalgic shaped, round side wedge, gold metallic patterned lining, detachable straps, complementary pouch bag, multiple pocket compartments, small metal “feets” to protect the bottom against wetness and dirt, and a premium waxed structured canvas.
Anthony, the eldest Bridgerton and in charge of business affairs and responsibilities for the after his father’s death. Now this season, he’s ready to find the perfect woman – on paper – to become his Viscountess, not necessarily for love but as an honorary duty as heir. His brooding personality is often reflected in his simple black velvet structured suits paired with white collared long sleeves and little embellishments as opposed to the rest of his family who stuck with their traditional colorful pastel palette. He needs a bag that’ll help him carry out his tasks as Viscount; spacious enough to collect taxes and revenues and to exude his masculinity and power.
The Buddy features a main case with two snap-buckles, sturdy carrying handle, adjustable shoulder straps, vintage fittings, and multi-colored plaid interior. Made of semi vegetable tanned premium buffalo leather, which is three times thicker than cowhide makeing it more resistant to tearing and reshaping. Its natural aging-process develops its own patina over time to give the bag a heritage appearance and unique feel.
Edwina, younger half-sister of Kate Sharma and this year’s “diamond of the season” has a more playful, girly, youthful aesthetic with her fashion, regularly wearing babydoll-style dresses in pastel colors of baby blues, pinks and yellows. Nothing fits better for the next stage of her life than the Zoe by Aunts & Uncles. This purse features a main case with a delicate-elegant silver lock that harmonizes with the lustrousness of the leather. Its light-weight concise square structured bag will easily carry all her needs. It has a long-enough chain strap to wear as a shoulder bag at two different lengths. In solid polished premium semi-vegetable tanned leather and sophisticated sapphire blue, will definitely help her shine bright like a diamond.
