No surprise there is a new hot bag this season. What will shock you, however, is the sticker price.
Danse Lente is a London-based handbag brand that has become adored by the fashion set for its sleek and minimalist designs that are inspired by architecture and art. The bags are versatile, functional, and timeless.
Did we mention the price? Almost all styles are under $500, which has made Danse Lente even more desirable among Birkin buddies and Chanel cronies. Londoners quickly snatched up all the available adjustable-strap Bucket Bags ($495) and architecturally striking Johnny shoulder bags ($385) early this Spring.
Once the UK-inventory was gone, the Europeans set their eyes on the US stock, which evaporated almost immediately. Once New Yorkers caught on, waiting lists started to grow. After nearly two months of waiting, Danse Lenta bags are finally back in stock but the inventory is going very fast. MyTheresa, Net-A-Porter and, Farfetch are all pretty well stocked online. Some popular color combinations are already sold out.
If you want to see the bag in person, in New York, you can go to Bergdorf Goodman or FiveStory. The big benefit of buying online is that you don’t have to pay New York sales tax and you save on cab fare.
