Instagram Eye Candy To Brighten Up Self-Isolation

With a global pandemic throwing the world into unchartered territory, handbags likely aren’t (and shouldn’t be, frankly) top priority.  This is true no matter how exquisite the materials may be, whatever quirky designs are on show and regardless of the striking color combos that catch your eye. On the other hand, it doesn’t hurt to look, does it?

If (like us) you’ve been using your time in self-isolation to rewatch some cinematic masterpieces, you may have stumbled across the film Love Actually which opens with Hugh Grant proclaiming that whenever he feels gloomy about the state of the world he turns to the loving exchanges at the arrivals gate of Heathrow Airport to cheer him up. Well, for us in the purse-loving community, scrolling through Instagram to glimpse some of the most beautiful bags is our equivalent of that. Here at PurseBop we’ve selected all the best Instagram eye candy we could find to brighten up your life during this very difficult time. Enjoy!

Who’s Up for a Spring Fling?

You may be torn up about not being able to start your spring off outside with picnics and daisies and all the glorious things that the end of winter brings. But why not bring the spring aesthetic inside your home by goggling over this assortment of charming spring colors? From classic pretty pink and lemon yellow to baby blue and delightfully light green – there’s something to brighten even the gloomiest of moods. Our favorite has to be the selection of Hermès pinks.

Classic Beauties

Beloved classics are sure to make you reminisce about happier days. In these turbulent times taking a look back at iconic designs that put luxury brands on the map doesn’t seem like such a bad idea…

The Weird, the Wacky and the Wonderful!

Days indoors can get boring and dampen your creativity but we’re looking to all bags weird and wacky for some shock, amusement and a much needed burst of imagination.

Louis Vuitton’s new Twist and Twisty are the hottest duo in the multi-bagging game right now. Quirky – yes, but also super adorable! Photo courtesy of @bohegirl

If there’s ever a time to admire your collection of limited edition pieces and arrange them in concentric circles on your bedroom floor, we can assure you it’s now! These Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette Accessoires are gems that should be treasured. Photo courtesy of @bags.and.fashion
