Bags A Style Statement For The Ladies
Style is something that is really important to women. To look dazzling is something that they always wish to possess. The collections of reputed designer hand-bags from the house of such renowned names like Louis Vuitton, Coach, Gucci, Fendi, Prada, etc are very expensive and much loved by the fashionistas! So the high price only adds to their desirability as it symbolizes excellence. The choice is unlimited- sensuous totes, shoulder bags, clutches that can be grasped in the palm and frills of a handy purse. Each can hold the most important secret and keep the mystery intact. The chain bags are bold and savvy, the fringed handbags are hippie and chic and the leather handbags are the all time favorite and the most versatile in the bag circuit. Potli Bag, another fast-rising fashionable bag which traces its roots to India has become a rage. Potlis has lived through the ages of Vedas, Mahabharat, Ramayana and continues to live today as part of Indian culture. In old days Potli was used as a very simple utility bag to carry either coins, personal belongings, etc. Now they have become more fashionable, hip and cool, more colourful and even a party accessory. Technically Potli bag is a very simple bag. Just a piece of cloth with a drawstring attached so that it can be closed by just pulling the strings. They can be in plain fabric or have beautiful embroidery and sequin work to give it more dazzle. Potli bags come in silk, jute, cotton and many other fabrics. They are unique and definitely very fashionable. Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, there is a handbag for every role a woman could wish to play, every image she ever dreamed of projecting. Whether it's a bag, a tote, a satchel, purse, a clutch or a hobo, they are all part of a fashion statement. They are available in different shapes, size, color and designs by different designers in current and vintage fashionable trends. There is no doubt about it that the concept of handbags was preliminarily utilitarian. With passing years fashion has slowly taken precedence over this established concept. In reality, a number of them have actually proved that both these concepts can actually be merged. The bags can be overtly fashionable and yet serve important function. The bag is an integral part of today's fashionista and it will remain so with all the top designers making a foray into the manufacturing of this accessory and making fashion less of a fad and more of an art!
