With the Spring/Summer ’18 runways seeing the likes of Helmut Lang, Céline and Emporio Armani feature see-through handbags and Karl Lagerfeld even sending his models down the Chanel catwalk in transparent raincoats – it’s quite clear that sheer is having a full on moment in 2018 [and yes, we deliberately opted for the word ‘clear’ here – just in case you were wondering…]
One brand that’s proving to have a serious case of the perspex persuasion is STAUD. As the brand’s social media revolution of odd-shaped bucket bags and enticing arty pieces such as the Moreau and Grace continue to attract a slew of influencer fans, it’s latest drop – The Shirley – is closely following suit.
Internationally, we’ve seen the likes of Eva Chen, Priyanka Chopra, and Song Of Style stepping out with their Shirley – while more locally, Australian influencers including Holly Titheridge, Molly Smyth, Svetlana Sinilova, Belinda Liana, The Ruby Report, and BiancaMelb have all been spotted toting this “it” bag on their arm.
