If you are a lover of handbags, you know that the market is huge. And while there is a wide selection in terms of brands and prices, the handbag kingdom is dominated by about a dozen luxury players. Many of these brands have been around for years and they have a rich history. Most of these brands (think Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Louis Vuitton) started out as a small family business that eventually developed into a huge company that we know today.
Although The Row was founded by twin sisters who are well known in the fashion world for their boho-chic style, the brand started out similarly to the brands mentioned above; as a venture between two sisters – Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. We've been talking about The Row a little more often than usual lately, and to be honest, I've been paying a lot more attention to the deals since I fell in love with the Half Moon bag.
I won't sit here and pretend I don't love a good logo. I've always loved logos and that hasn't changed. As I get older, however, I also appreciate a well-made bag that is luxurious, but subtle and reserved. The series fits this bill incredibly well, and although my search list is longer than I can list here (old habits die hard), I'm seriously considering buying a quality bag that appeals to the minimalist who started it brew in me
The Row launched handbags in 2011, and while most brands have changed direction and aesthetics a few times since then, The Row has remained true to its core DNA over the past 9 years. In the meantime, they've built a loyal fan base and I'm slowly starting to count myself as one. My youngest crush is the simple but sleek Row Nu Twin mini bag which at first glance gives me a serious # oldceline mood. The twin is for the series like the trio for Celine, and I'm here for it.
As can be seen on the SS 20 runway, the The Row Nu Twin bag was updated for spring and is an essential everyday bag due to its minimalist design. There is not much to say about this bag, as the design is simple yet seductive. It can be worn as a crossbody with an adjustable belt or as a clutch by hand. Although there is a tiny embossed logo directly underneath the zipper, this bag flies under the radar as a whole, something that many people have come to know and love about The Row bags.
The Nu Twin Mini is made of smooth calf leather with a beautiful grain. I'm excited to get my hands on this bag and really see and feel the leather. It's incredibly compact, but the two compartments of the bag allow for a decent amount of your most important things with maximum organization. The Nu Twin mini is the perfect everyday bag for those who don't carry a bin every day or for someone who only carries this bag as a go-out bag. It costs $ 1,290 and its overall dimensions are 6.4 "L x 7.6" W x 1.6 "D. There is also a larger version of the bag for those who prefer a larger bag.
