Beautiful box bag from Zara
Zara always seems to get the balance right between picking up on seasonal trends and creating pieces that will last more than just a few months - in both quality and style. Their bags are created in muted colours and classic blacks to work with your capsule wardrobe, but incorporate the textures, shapes and embellished elements of the latest catwalk shows.
This Shiny Mini Box bag from Zara is a great example of how they've embraced a hot shape for SS12 (the box bag) and give it their classic twist. It's covered in black sparkly sequins, making it a primarily evening bag, but not so much that they've overdone it.
My only bugbear with Zara is the lack of information on their product pages, but I can get over that if they continue to produce bags like this. The Shiny Mini Box bag from Zara is £39.99.
