The handbag has been the ultimate sidekick for stylish women since the late 18th century when women’s dresses were so slim fitting, it was no longer fashionable to carry one’s belongings in pockets. Instead, the women carried reticules and drawstring purses to hold coins and personal accoutrements. Today, Tory Burch‘s beautifully elegant yet practical handbags are set to take you exploring around the world.
How did the handbag become our sidekick?
Early feminists actually fought against the use of the handbag as they saw it as a symbol of inequality – women should have pockets, just like men. Luckily, the need for being practical emerged the winner. Today, the handbag is an essential part of our outfit. It’s a necessity that merges fashion with function and is part of a woman’s everyday life. While some women prefer to have different handbags for day and night, many women prefer a handbag that’s so versatile, it can be used for different occasions and activities.
The SIDEKICK series featuring Marie Claire and Tory Burch brings out the jet setter in you and takes you everywhere in style. Whether you are off to the beach or exploring a new city, it’s important to choose your sidekick wisely. With Tory Burch’s SS19 collection, you’ll be able to incorporate bohemian ease as well as choose a variety of styles that balance volume with casual glamour.
These handbags will grab attention because of their playful colours and creativity of the designs. From Robinson and Perry to Lee Radziwill and Miller, each bag is designed with a unique sense of style and available in various sizes to fit different lifestyles and preferences. The lightweight structure of each Tory Burch bag makes it a dream to carry with you on your travels. You can marvel at all the wonderful designs in our video below!
