The first time I got my passport, the first question raised on my mind was:” why the cover is burgundy?” But after a second look, I thought:” why not burgundy?
Burgundy is so universally flattering, versatile yet stylish. It’s serious but still has a lively vibe. It’s classical and modern at the same time.
It’s a perfect color for fall and winter, but when paired with light and fresh tones like pink or ivory, it will make your look sophisticated in spring and summer, especially when it is used in bags, like this LV Sofia Coppola SC Miranda Kerr carries:
She was spotted carrying it many times with a variety of style pieces: from the girly polka dot top to the sexy leather knee-high boots.
As its name says, LV Sofia Coppola SC Bag was designed by one my favorite director Sofia Coppola. She said she wanted to design a bag for women who buy LV bag not because it’s a luxury brand, but because of the function and versatility of the bag.
I personally think she applied her own life motto to the design of this LV collection. Born in a prominent family, shown on the screen she was a toddler, Sofia Coppola could just be a good actress. But she wants more, especially inside. Like the symbols she wants the bag represents: not just be luxury, stylish, but also need to be practical. She worked with LV team for one year to design this collection and it pays off: I felt in love with this SC when it first came out in 2009. Now, after nearly 3 year, I still deeply love it and enjoy to see other stylish ladies around the world carry it in their own ways.
Alex Chun also chose the burgundy color:
Since being named Burgundy back in 1881, it has been very active in many areas: men’s wear, women’s wear, outdoor sports (like equestrian), indoor decor… I think that’s why more and more designers went back to it these years, my favorite part is burgundy bags of course. Love these from Proenza Shouler, Mulberry ,Yves Saint Laurent , Prada ,Celine and Chloé:
But on top of all designer bags in burgundy, this one definitely has the most fans:
When you think of burgundy as a dark red, you can easily tame it: for a slightly brighter burgundy, pair it with bright hues, like red, ivory, green…my favorite one is burgundy with hunter green, which reminds me of Gucci’s signature strips.
For a darker burgundy, consider pairing it with soft hues. My favorite is with gray. The combo is so elegant and classic. Victory Beckham is a good example of this combination.
