This little structured bag harkens back to another time and looks forward all at once. Imagine flowing rayon dresses with bright prints, high heeled platform sandals with open toes, smooth, wavy hair. Walking by the river on a balmy Spring day. Sitting down for coffee, a good book, and a tasty sweet at an outdoor cafe, your bag on the white marble table. Decorated with Shirley Poppies or perfectly sleek and plain, the Retro will make you want to swing your arms when you carry it. The perfect bag for this Spring and Summer.
