Hmm, I have to say I like the wings. But now that EVERYBODY and their mama is throwing wings on bags, its becoming a little much. Could that mean that wings will eventually be a staple style such as the satchel or the hobo?
Anyway, I like them and wouldn't mind adding some wings to my collection. It just has to be the right bag.
I've always liked the "wings" from a practical standpoint. Having the sides of the bag pushed out a bit makes the top opening bigger and much easier to get in/out of in my opinion. So I think that's a design element that is going to stay.
As for the Celine luggage that inspired it all, I've always thought the iconic feature of that bag was the wavy lines and face, not the wings. I'm so over THAT!
Love my Krakoff mini atlantique and think the Kors Selma looks like a classy functional bag.
