First spotted on social media shared by fashionistas and street style captured in Paris and London, Fall 2016’s must have bag has emerged: The Pierce Bag by J.W. Anderson.
Running anywhere from $1145 to $3005, this cute cross-body is the ideal companion for those who like to make a statement. The striking and memorable component to this wardrobe staple is the stand-out oversized gold hoop in the center of the bull-nose shaped bag. This design is J.W. Anderson’s only new addition to their purse line for Fall/Winter 2016.
Fashion bloggers and magazines have taken notice of the rising trend in fall fashion. Allure branded the bag as the “new street style essential”, commenting on the clean and elegant lines with a rebellious twist with the gold ring addition, while Barney’s “The Window” blog named the Pierce bag as their must have bag in July.
With a variety of choices in size, shape, color, and pattern this 100% calf leather purse is sure to fit in with any gal’s wardrobe. Instagrammer @fashionlandscape paired hers with a classic black and white look while @ belmodotiany added her Pierce bag to her look to edge out her feminine outfit.
For those of us who feel faint just thinking about dropping over $1000 on a purse, look-alike bags with similar metal rings as the central detail to the cross-body can be found for the girl on a budget. Chloé’s Faye bag is an adorable and affordable alternative at $60 and it still showcases the eye catching ring.
