In the Market Report by Marilyn Kirschner

Fashion is Going in ‘Circles"!

Thom Browne circular shoulder bag in red, white, black leather $1245

There’s no question that the old adage “what goes around comes around” applies to fashion, which is nothing, if not cyclical. Yes, it all comes back but contrary to what many think or say, new is not always improved; sometimes, the original was far better! But regardless, that’s not the only area of fashion where the word ‘round’ applies. It’s been hard not to notice a plethora of round, circular shaped bags in the market, and I’ve become somewhat obsessed because of the sheer variety. Here’s a 'round' up (wink wink) of some of my favorites (a few are even on sale).



Rare vintage Chanel black and white circular chain bag, $3989 (reduced from $4999). More info/purchase



Diane Von Furstenberg describes her two-tone leather “Circle” shoulder bag as “sharp, clean, and endlessly versatile”. I agree. The strap is not only adjustable, but removable, and it’s well priced, to boot! $300. More info/purchase



Jerome Dreyfuss leopard print goat skin, lamb fur and hair calf round bag, $658 More info/purchase



Mansur Gavriel “Circle” tote in red drum-dyed leather which has a protective coat to keep the color from fading, $1095 More info/purchase



Vintage Chanel quilted red and black patent leather round vanity tote, $5959 More info/purchase



Sophie Anderson Lella Circle Bag $255 More info/purchase



Sophie Anderson pompom-embellished handwoven lightweight raffia Adorada tote, $200 More info/purchase



Marni color block leather tambourine bag, $1390 More info/purchase



Mugler circular pink leather shoulder bag, $435 (reduced from $1086) More info/purchase

While I have focused on bags, there are also several notable circle printed items worth a mention:



Stella McCartney circle printed silk skirt with asymmetrical hem, $370 (reduced from $925) More info/purchase



MSGM black and white wool blend circle intarsia sweater, $323 (reduced from $461) More info/purchase



1970’s Marimekko purple and brown large circle windowpane cotton maxi dress, $924 More info/purchase



Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Ringstead printed crepe shirt, $150 (reduced from $500) More info/purchase

From the way I see it, it’s hip to be round!
