The ‘It Bag’ For Your Ethnic Outfits


Girls can pull out magic tricks with the amount of stuff they carry in the tiniest of bags. Girls love their bags and know how to have fun with it when bags play a pivotal role in their outfits. While teeny ‘micro-bags’ are capturing the market globally, Indians have shifted their interests towards dainty potli bags as a perfect complement to their ethnic outfits. Some time back, girls would grab their regular international brands’ sling bags when stepping out in their ethnic outfits. Times have changed and women now resort to delicate potli bags in their wardrobes that complete the ethnic look. Made out of silky, velvety fabrics with gota, mirror-work or zardosi, these are tiny, delicate and colourful things that not only complement but elevate the ethnic look. The trend of little potlis is here to stay as indicated in the latest Sabyasachi collection Kashgaar Bazaar, where he collaborated with Christian Louboutin to give a desi twist to Louboutin’s iconic ‘Marie Jane’ bucket bag by converting it into a zardosi potli with latkan.
