Wheel Your Luggage?

 Alaia Animal-Print Calf Hair Travel bag, $6,785.00, Net-A-Porter
Givenchy Nightingale Trolley, $4,660.00

Wheel Your Luggage?

Bagopedia is afraid, I mean really afraid of seeing people rolling luggage in the airports. When Louis Vuitton started to make these wheel things, I was like: OK, at least they looked like Louis Vuitton luggage. Then I found more and more companies are making luggage on wheel. I am like, I am sorry. I can't stand it any more! Now Even Givenchy and Alaia is making them!

I know there is a huge market for this. Call me old fashion. I still think air travel is very elegant (Maybe I watch too many episodes of the TV show Pan Am). It freaks me out when I see people wearing shorts, torn sweats, tank tops, and flippers wheeling their luggage. I understand maybe in Miami International, but not JFK. There are many things to afraid of when you fly- the baby crying, the kicking, the latitude, and now the wheel.

Sometimes I have to give Kim Kardashian credits for wearing a fur coat and leather pants at the Miami International in September. At least she wears something for other people's pleasure.

Bagopedia had a discussion with my collies about this issue. They told me the wheel things are much more convenient and won't ruin your shoulders. Unless you have babies. You don't need so many things to fly. I get really annoyed that when I am boarded late, there was no room on cabin to locate my bag. Bagopedia's carry-on is always a 40 CM Birkin. All I need is a sleeping pill when I fly.

Celine Trapeze Bag: Developing Love

Where to Buy: Celine Boutiques, Barney's,
Who Carries It: Celine Dion
Baggopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia is surprised that how I develop my love with Celine bags. The only bag I liked was the totes. Then I wrote an article about that I wasn't crazy about the Luggage totes. I also found the Phantom bags really ugly.

Then guess what? I have them all! They don't give great impression at first sight, but look better later. I still haven't loved this Trapeze bag yet. However, as my pattern, I might end up getting it.

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Candy Wrap Clutch

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Candy Wrap Clutch: An Arm Candy

Price: $60.00
Where to Buy: Selected H&M Stores,
Who Carries It: Rita Ora,
Bagopedia's Rating: 5 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia has never been a fan of the luxury brand cooperates with H&M. I has never lined up for the Versace, Marni, or CDG collection. However, I did line up for the MMM collection.

I got this clutch as well as the mirror leggings. I love something is just fun and not so serious. It adds glitter to my winter clothes which are all totally dark.

I think it is a great deal to have this all leather clutch for just $60.00. The collection is totally sold-out. If you missed the bag, you can pay more on ebay.

Miu Miu Madra Bi-Color Double Handle Box Bag

Miu Miu Madra Bi-Color Double Handle Box Bag: A Bright Winter

Who Carries It: Sienna Miller, Emma Roberts,
Where to Buy: Saks Fifth Avenue,
Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Color-blocking is still popular this fall/winter. You can see style icon Sienna Miller (Yes) and Emma Roberts (Maybe later) are carrying this beautiful Miu Miu bag. I love the color in the front- between red and orange. 

The bag has a open top but a middle zipper compartment. Even though the bag has 3 compartments- middle zipper and open front and back, it doesn't look too chubby. 

The bag also come with light and dark blue combination. Bagopedia likes the red better. It really depends on you are a red person or a blue person.
