I think now it’s the time to show you one of my last great investments – bag from Victoria Beckham. Do you remember my post with ‘5 main criteria of choosing ‘the right bag’? To be honest, I forgot about them when I was purchasing my leather zip pouch, because it was ‘love at first sight’, and as they say ‘there are no rules when it comes to love’. But I can’t but admit that this bag is perfect at all points!
I always plan big purchases that require great investments in advance, however, this one was something outstanding and at the same time something special. It was one of the last days of my staying in London, when I’ve decided to drop in the Dover street to take a look at the first Victoria Beckham flagship store in London. I’ve never been in her boutiques before and couldn’t miss an opportunity to do this for two simple reasons: she is my favorite designer, whose work I don’t cease to admire, and the store was opened in London, the city which stole my heart.
6,000 square feet of the store, designed by architect Farshid Moussavi, really impress. Imagine an array of colourful handbags line the wall like an art installation, four-meter wide polished concrete staircase that is reflected in the mirrored ceiling, large screen plays her latest show, capacious changing rooms – all polished concrete, bottle green glass, mirrored stainless steel and American walnut. Every detail is brought to perfect, even scent – Diptyque’s Feu de Bois candles!
I was under the impression, but believe me it was not the most beautiful thing that happened! I’d already decided that’s it’s time to go as I saw her – Victoria Beckham. It was one of those meetings, which will be definitely in the top of the brightest acquaintances in my life! However, we had just a little talk, I was so impressed and charmed by Victoria! She is the most stunning woman that I’ve ever met!
Next day, still overflowed with emotions from this meeting, I’ve decided to make a little present for me as a reminder about that day and my staying in London – zip pouch from Victoria Beckham. Now you know, that’s it’s not just a bag, it’s the bag with its own story.
