New Season's Perforated Totes from Designer to High Street

If you want to own the bag of the season, then now’s the time to invest in a bag with holes in it.  From Alaia’s exquisite laser-cut totes and Dolce & Gabbana’s polka dot perforated bags in red or blue these are completely lust-worthy bags, at least in my opinion.  Although at true designer prices of course.

The fact that there are just so many of these laser cut, perforated bags sitting on Net-a-Porter’s website says just one thing; if you’re a fashion lover, you really need – note that word – one of these bags to show the world you know what’s new and covetable.  Not to mention on trend.

Having instantaneously fallen in love with the dove grey Alaia version, which I’m sure my bank manager will be thrilled to know I will not buying anytime soon, I have found other perforated, laser cut or cut out bags which are worth snapping up right now, as there aren’t that many of them around and they’re bound to be walking off a website near you quite soon.

And if you do go for one of Alaia’s versions, treasure it, it’s a piece of art as well as a bag.  And yes I would love to own one, but not right now I think.

Note:  The larger totes and those that are more see-through usually come with a zipped detachable clutch inside – making them double-duty perfect as well.
