BAG OF THE WEEK - THE LUCIA DOCTORS BAG
The Doctor’s bag is often touted as one of the most successful shapes as to appear in handbag history, proven by its persistent appearances throughout the decades. It was even dubbed by many as the shape of the season when it popped up upon several of the A/W 12 catwalks in a plethora of variations, which toyed with both its traditional shape and classic design characteristics. Nica certainly acquired a style tip or two, and realised that it’s an investment piece that we can continue to use for many more seasons to come.
The Doctor’s bag is generally associated with being a fuss-free way of injecting your outfit with a boyish edge yet Jill Sander’s runway proved otherwise, and showcased a variation of the trend with clearly feminine aesthetics. Its form was stretched, which made for a 1950’s feel, with the addition of an uncharacteristically placed shoulder strap, and even a pastel pink handle.
Of course, you don’t have to make like the runways and completely restructure your Doctor’s bag as to incorporate it into your own personal style, as the traditional design has a classic enough of a feel as to sit alongside many different looks.
Nica have released the Lucia Doctors Bag - The ultimate Bohemian doctor style grab bag brought bang up to date with intricate laser- cut work in lovely antiqued colours. Inspired by vintage pieces from the 1950’s, the lock & key detailing are a gorgeous addition to complete the look.
It's £59 and available now.
