At first glance, you may not look at these bags and think that they’re all tribal-inspired, but there are many kinds of tribes; and by the looks of these, I want to join every last one! Which do you belong to? For even more options (think Game of Thrones’ Dothraki), check out my latest column for Vogue China by downloading the Vogue Mini app!
Tribe: Northern Italian
Prada Saffiano Lisa-Print Satchel Bag: When we think of Northern Italy’s history, the Renaissance and its much-lauded artists come to mind. One of today’s great Italian artists, Miuccia Prada, pays homage to her culture with the house’s latest collection of face-printed bags. Similar option at Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,290.
Bottega Veneta Atlantic Madras and Exotic Skin Shoulder Bag: Moroccan aesthetics, Italian craftsmanship…this Mangrove snake-trimmed confection is the perfect example of East meets West. At Bottega Veneta.
Tribe: American Indian
Saint Laurent Emmanuelle Small Suede Cross-body Bag: ’70s-style fringe in a thoroughly modern blue is the most effortless way to wear the tribal trend. At MATCHESFASHION.com for $1,890.
Proenza Schouler Small Courier: Weaving dark green leather into this block print adds a tactile element to an already inviting design. At Proenza Schouler for $1,840.
Chloé Drew Small Python and Leather Shoulder Bag: Contrasting colors and exotic skins elevate a casual bag – albeit a whimsical one – to new levels of desirability. There are more gorgeous iterations of the Drew than I can keep up with! On NET-A-PORTER for $3,700.
