Secure The Bag: A Guide to Must-Have Black-Owned Bags for Summer 2021
Brandon Blackwood's "End Systemic Racism" Bag
2021 is the year of the bag, in more ways than one. This summer we're in our bag, both literally and figurately, with these cute black-owned bags around our shoulders. Here are a few of my favorite black-owned bag brands:
We love a statement piece that makes a statement, and Brandon Blackwood's "End Systemic Racism" totes do just that. Not only are they effortlessly chic, but they have a message that we can stand by - what's not to love? Even though Brandon Blackwood's "ESR" totes are gone forever (sad face), we can look forward to a plethora of new styles (see above) on May 10th! Save the date.
Patchwork is back in, and the comeback it's made is of Britney Spears levels. These cute sustainable patchwork bags have by Asata Maisé have sent fire waves through Instagram, and it's easy to see why. The brand is currently gearing up to release its Spring/Summer 2021 collection. You can join the waitlist here.
No, we're not tired of Telfar yet, and you shouldn't be either. That is all :)
