WE'RE CALLING IT. MASKS MAY BE DONNED + SOCIAL DISTANCING STILL IN PLACE - BUT WITH COVID19 BEING RELATIVELY UNDER CONTROL IN AUSTRALIA (BETTER LATE THAN NEVER MELBOURNE), IT'S TIME FOR A PARTY. DUST OFF THE CHAMPAGNE FLUTES, TURN THE TUNES UP, SLIP ON SOMETHING SPECIAL + LET'S CELEBRATE, IN CRUELTY FREE STYLE, GETTING THROUGH 2020.
Whilst we can’t be there to nurse your post event sore head, or put bandaids on your blistered feet, we can suggest cruelty free handbag options that will help you feel better about the impact you're having on animals + the planet. Here are some of our favourite treasures, to consider as your 'plus one' at your festive soiree.
Crossbody bags are our style of choice this event season. Why worry about having to juggle your cocktail, canapé + your clutch? A crossbody bag says you're a carefree creature who doesn't have to clutch a fashionable receptacle + limit your hands-on activities.
Here are Studio SB's top crossbody bag styles for events season, or even if you just feel like taking your outfit to the next level because you're excited at the prospect of seeing friends + family again:
New to Series 6, The Lobby Crossbody Bag has become a firm favourite amongst our community + it’s not hard to see why. With modern + sleek design, it’s an easy to wear piece, and the shiny hardware on the Ox turnlock + strap details give an edge of 'relaxed glamour'; a welcome addition to any party. If bling is your thing, up the ante with an Illuminated Chain Strap.
The Lobby is also a clever choice for your daytime engagement. It’s a little bigger than our other crossbody styles which means it will easily fit extra essentials such as sunglasses + case, SPF moisturiser (or hand sanitiser perhaps?) + a power bank to keep you going from day to night.
The Salon Crossbody Bag comprises the same design features as The Lobby but in a more petite size. Given that it’s light, The Salon is perfect for after 5 events where you just want to dance the night away. Pop in your phone, lipstick, cards, keys + voila! - you’re party ready.
Like The Lobby, The Salon is trimmed with a metal turnlock, double pin buckle + eyelets for strap adjustability, custom moulded dogclips for strap swap overs + metal bag feet, protecting the base of the bag. However, as per correct social etiquette we don’t suggest leaving your companion to fend for itself at an event for too long.
We couldn’t overlook our signature crossbody style in the party wrap up - The Reader Satchel. With its vintage inspired luggage handle + boxy shape it’s got a 'modern meets nostalgic' mood + still brings the beasts to the yard. It has multiple gussets + compartments so it's a great piece when you need all your treasures, but also want to keep other bits safe, such as your keys + cards.
The Reader always makes a statement + is a fun addition to any event. It now comes in more colourways + fabrications than ever, so it suits any style. If you're a Sans Beast aficionado + already familiar with our signature collection, check out the new tones of Vanilla Croco + Tutu Python.
For those seeking a bolder, more opinionated look, all our crossbody bags can be customised with our range of bag straps. There's the added benefit of buying a (full priced) bag + a strap, and saving 10% on your total purchase.
A final note from us: There are so many events we’re excited about this party season. 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us + we can’t wait to toast to being amongst our friends + family again, however there is one event we won’t be participating in + that’s the Spring Racing Carnival.
We know race days look glamorous (been there, done that), but we can’t deny horse racing exists to use animals for human profit, and when profit is the main driver, exploitation exists. Horses deserve better from us. We stand with the horses, past + present, who are pushed to triumph for humans + if they’re deemed surplus are sent to a grim + terrifying death.
This year more than ever we believe we can find another reason to get together + celebrate. So we’ll be saying Nup To The Cup!
A toast, to being around the ones we love + celebrating this events season - be well + stay safe beautiful beasts, we so appreciate you being here.
