In my previous post I blogged about rubber becoming the IT material for this season’s bags. Yet after coming across these canvas creations I am ready to give up both leather and rubber! Thursday Friday is a cool new brand creating canvas bags and pouches with prints of It bags: Chanel, Miu Miu and Balenciaga. The best thing – your gym, picnic or second overspill bag will never have to be boring and style-less again. I just love that these bags are both a fashion and anti-fashion items: tribute and opposition to the It bags they display. And unlike the originals they won’t cost a fortune. Large canvas bag called Super Together is $90 (approximately £57), original Together is $65 (approximately £41) and pouches called Here Pochettes are $35 each (£22).
I am planning to purchase Together and use it as a bag in it’s own right – the size is perfect as it will fit all the daily essentials plus a few magazines, laptop, change of shoes and of course a Here pouch filled with must-have beauty items. For example I absolutely can not leave the house without hand cream, lip balm, eyeliner and red lipstick. Have a look at the entire range and purchase them online at www.thufri.com.

The first time I have ever heard about the concept of IT bags it was associated with Balenciaga. Different sizes and colours of the bag were popular among stars and fashionistas alike season after season. But as expected after a (very long) while the interest died down and new colour schemes and shapes that were brought out could not reignite it.
This season Balenciaga got ready for the cold months by changing leather to suede on this beautiful Velo Bag – and here I am again, desiring Balenciaga bag like I was about 5-6 years ago.
The studs, the tassels and the pocket mirror are still there – so despite the material change its Balenciaga through and through, just cooler and very ‘now’.
