Most urban-chic bags are designed as a variation on a single silhouette in a bland blend of black nylon, which is probably why they all look alike (ie. boring). However, the new "London" bag from Nella Bella caught our eye for all the right reasons. We love the way it kept the best part of the messenger bag - the functionality - but then transformed it into a true multi-tasker that makes hands-free the stylish way to be. Made from two matching but differently sized- rectangular compartments, one a large square messenger and one a smaller clutch - the London can be worn together to make a multi-compartment hobo with the clutch layered to the outside; the strap can be adjusted to make a shoulder bag; each compartment each be carried separately; the clutch can be tucked inside the messenger as a wallet/day bag or even strapped onto your waist as a fanny pack. (Check out the video below to see the bag in action!)
The London is available in an excellent selection of non-boring hues, including a sunny yellow, burgundy'ish red, dark blue, caramel, brown, and of course, black. (The perfect-for-summer cream color is the one we have a serious jones on for. ) Nella Bella bags are all made from vegan, eco-chic materials, and your inner Cali girl will be pleased to know that Katy Perry is a fan of the line!
