Fashion Spotlight: Pop Bag USA
Make Your Style Pop
The best accessories are those that really stand – or ‘pop’ – out from a crowd. That’s why this season, we’re obsessing over Pop Bag USA. The Tuscany-born brand brings us fall’s most popular trends of hand-drawn illustrations, studded details, color-blocking, and embroidered prints. If you’re more into a simpler, subdued look to complement your style, this Italian fashion house also offers a selection of single-color essentials to rock on any occasion. Happen to be dreaming of a half-navy leather, half-iridescent pearl, medium-sized studded tote with a metallic champagne handle? You’re in luck! Pop Bag has an entire “Design Your Own” section, where you can choose from a long list of colors and fabrics for customizable tote panels and handles for your very own creation.
No matter the style, shape, personality, or origin story, there’s one thing consistent with all Pop Bag USA products –the small-batch, luxurious quality of Italian leather. Despite its name, Pop Bag USA was founded in Tuscany, a region famous for its production of wine, art, and quality leather goods – basically all of life’s finest things. Produced in the beautiful city of Florence, every Pop Bag product begins with Tuscany’s centuries-old method of designing highest-quality leather goods and are crafted with the unparalleled workmanship that is woven into the DNA of local craftsmen.
Thankfully, you don’t have to travel far to get your hands on one of Pop Bag’s cool-girl bags and accessories. With locations all around the world from France, Germany, Hong Kong, and many more, Pop Bag USA has now opened its first U.S. location on the 4th floor of Time Warner Center’s Shops of Columbus Circle, where you can get a feel for the quality Italian pebbled or saffiano leather for yourself. At the trendy storefront, check out exclusive in-store only select designs and their limited-edition artist collections with legendary artists Hektad and Jonny Detiger.
Pop Bag also has Pop Wallets; a wallet base that comes with interchangeable wallet covers made of the same leather and textures as the Pop Bag panels. Along with wallets, Pop Bag has other quality leather accessories such as Mini Bags, Pop Backpacks, Phone Bags, Envelopes, and Key Chains.
By giving customers ultimate design power and by launching exciting artist collaborations, this growing brand allows you to carry a staple piece that is reflective of your unique style and personality while maintaining top quality, storage convenience, and comfort.
As the movement toward sustainable fashion continues, Pop Bag is the ideal purse for sustainable quality. After all, the bag itself is buildable, with different components allowing you to mix, match and exchange each panel.
