The 1950’s Through The 1970s – World War II’s Influence, Women’s Independence, Wild Child Culture

What’s old is new again. 

A follower of fashion history and trends recognizes cycles of clothing and accessories.  Just observe the wardrobe choices of television shows of the 50s, 60s, and 70s impacted by world social and cultural events of those particular decades.

Prior to the Second War World, handbags were made for a few daily essentials – makeup, a coin purse, and a cigarette case. Leather small handheld bags and clutches were the standard-bearer.

WWII saw Americans and their allies asking their citizens to sacrifice material to help in the war effort.  At the end of the war, women who had to work outside the home in male-dominated jobs, desired a return to beautiful things and designers stepped up to the plate with larger framed handbags (envelope clutches) and shoulder bags.  To carry more necessary items to get through the day, of course!   

However, fashion’s about-face was also due to women having no desire to give up their freedom from working in factories earning a living and wanted to show their newfound attitudes and independence in the wardrobe.   

The 60s and 70s saw the rise of designer bags named after style icons such as the Gucci Jackie Bag (named after Jackie Kennedy Onassis) or the famed Kelly Hermes Bag (Grace Kelly’s namesake).   The youth and hippie culture grew prevalent and it showed in the varying fashion styles of mini-skirts and bell-bottoms with the matching cross-body shoulder bags for easier world traveling.

Students of handbag history recognized today’s borrowed structures of vintage bags – framed, structural, or straight lines, yet functional in carrying essentials.  Beau Satchelle is committed to the re-creation of these familiar historical designs along with showcasing sustainably handcrafted workmanship.

As many people around the world are fond of the top designer handbags, there are individuals who prefer a touch of modern design with a blend of traditional style.   Beau Satchelle would like to share their love by showcasing what they find to be a delicate balance of these precious attributes.

Classic and Upgraded Messenger Bags

The Messenger Bag originated as a bag for couriers to transport mail and goods.  This particular bag, made from an array of durable materials, is typically equipped with a strap, long and strong enough to wear across the chest with the bag resting on the back or hip to providing easy access to its contents.

Historically, the design is much wider (as opposed to taller) than other bags for carrying heavier or bulkier items (in today’s terms, usually means your tech office in a bag).  

Beau Satchelle’s exceptional luxury bespoke messenger bags satisfy our clients’ travel needs while aging beautifully.    

The Michelle Original and Upgraded

Beau Satchelle’s first collection series, the Michelle Bag, is known for its simplistic lines, paying homage to the short top handle made popular in the 1940s.  The difference… wrapped pure sexiness, this medium sized handbag celebrates color by selecting contrasting interior and exterior shades for any Michelle owner to love opening her bag for that “Wow” factor!

Hats became an important fashion accessory for women as well throughout the centuries.  The storage and carrying of vintage boxes were an integral element to protect headwear.  Hatbox handbags became quite popular in transporting more than just hats  in the late 20th and 21st centuries.  Moreso, women of fashion select these handbags as over-the-top statement pieces. 

To honor the true hat boxes of an earlier time when women did carry hats in boxes for protection, hat boxes are now a divine way to showcase your high fashion sense in a unique manner.               

Beau Satchelle offers a wide range of“one-off” unimaginable luxury leather goods including the introduction of a beautiful hat box style handbag which was elegantly envisioned and crafted by our master artisan, T. Michael, who provides our customers with classic luxury and quality craftsmanship of traditional handcrafted artisans and ateliers. 

The beautiful Beau Satchelle hatbox style handbag is an example of authentic handcraftsmanship and was showcased in the Summer of 2017.  It even toured Paris, France, with our then Brand Ambassador, Grace Liang.  There are many variations and shapes of the hatbox, but it remained traditional with the rounded design, made with premium leather throughout.  This particular design was a tribute to the classic English hatbox designs in the late 19th century.
