Pretty P.O.V.: Sonia Kashuk Fall 2013 Cosmetic Bag Collection Thursday 10 October, 2013
The holidays are right around the corner, which means you’re most likely traveling somewhere…even if it’s near. Use Sonia Kashuk’s new cosmetic bags to take part of the edge off of traveling.
The first Sonia Kashuk cosmetic bag I ever owned was a large black Travel Duffle. It’s the perfect size to take for a weekend away; it easily holds three outfits, pjs and even a pair or two of wedge heels. It’s sleek-looking: satiny black with gold hardware. The most amazing thing about this Travel Duffle, though? That I had not one, but two men compliment me on it. Like…what? “I like your bag,” they said. I know what you’re thinking: Maybe it was a lame attempt at a pick-up line? But, no. It wasn’t. They thought it was a slick bag…because it is.
So the introduction of a full-fledged cosmetic bag collection from Sonia Kashuk is music to my ears. Not only has she re-introduced the much-admired Travel Duffle in two gorgeous patterns, Geo and Floral, but also a whole host of different sized and functional bags that meet just about any need a traveler could dream of. Oh, and: The Travel Duffle now includes two removable clear plastic pouches that velcro to the interior walls of the bag. They’re perfect for storing toiletries and cosmetics! She really did think of everything, which she admitted to me, being a globetrotter herself. She told me that everything in the collection is about smart packing and functionality. And, naturally, because Sonia’s in the business of beauty (she’s a world-famous makeup artist, you know), she wanted to make the bags beautiful as well.
Here are some of my favorites from the collection. And with prices that top out at $39.99 (for the Duffle, which is the creme de la creme), you could feasibly own a few without breaking the bank!
Travel Duffle in Floral I’ve already gushed about this one. I should also add: It’s pretty darn durable. I’ve carried some heavy stuff in it before, and it is able to withstand the weight.
Valet in Fur This smart organizer unfolds to unveil a hook to allow you to hang it anywhere. It’s perfect for when counter space is scarce.
Beauty Organizer in Prism I actually use this as my day-to-day beauty organizer. It contains two clear pouches that can be detached via velcro; I put my powders in one and my liquids in the other. It also has a sleeve divider that holds brushes, as well as a clear zipper pocket. It is impossible to not be organized when you use this.
Roll Up Valet in Geo This little cutie rolls up into a tiny bag, perfect for small areas. But it carries a ton! It contains four little clear pouches that detach (via velcro), as well as another non-clear compartment for stowing things you may not want the world to see.
