Bagslag is an independent handbag design brand created in 2003 by Lee Sylvester.
Lee has worked as a clothing and accessories designer for Sergio Tacchini, Puma and Umbro, clothing sports stars such as David Beckham and the England Football Team â€“ but she wanted to focus on her passion for bags.
I was recently contacted by this company as I often am, but what stood out first was their name. Bagslag is one of the most clever names I’ve heard in a while for a company, especially a bag company. I haven’t actually seen a bagslag bag but aside from the name being so clever, their designs are pretty clever as well.
My personal favorite is the Tracey designer bag and – considering it is designer..technically.. the price is definitely not the kind you shy away from. This has become a signature piece for the label. Itâ€™s made from a spiral cut piece of leather fastened together with a long zip wrapping around the bag. It’s made from leather clutch sized, nickel metal zip fastening with leather strap and rivets. Fully lined in Hot Pink Taffeta. Featuring a long continuous zip which fully opens out the bag. Who’s thought of that, I ask you?! Wont be losing anything inside this bag.
The tracey is a little bit punk, a little bit rock & roll and a whole lot of pink. Things I like very much. If they ever felt like sending me a sample *hint* this would be the one.
It also comes in black, silver and white, also great colors for any time of day.
