This unique, one-of-a-kind large shoulder tote was inspired by Mary Poppins’ famous carpet bag.
In P.L. Travers’ original novel, Mary Poppins was a packing wonder! What was in her carpet bag exactly? How about … an apron, a packet of hairpins, a bottle of scent, a small folding armchair, a packet of throat lozenges, a large bottle of dark red medicine, seven flannel nightgowns, one pair of boots, a set of dominoes, two bathing caps, one postcard album, one folding camp bedstead, blankets and an eiderdown.
The Imaginaire is my version of an ideal tote for the iconic, 21st Century girl with superpowers. We’ve all met her—she’s a mother, a grandmother, a student, an executive, an artist. And she needs a roomy bag with a few tricks too.
The Imaginaire comes with several external pockets, plus an extra one with its own magic: a generous, removable zipper pouch that can be used as a clutch to complete a cool summer outfit.
With a whimsical mix of fabrics and colors, the body of the bag features a high-quality upholstery fabric in red velvet on beige canvas and side pockets in a contrasting black and white zebra-striped velour. The interior is fully lined with 100% natural linen.
The eye-catching yellow leather handles are a nod to Spring fashion’s darling color.
Imagine what a modern-day Mary might pull from the Imaginaire!
