Retro style polka dots made their debut in the high fashion scene some time during the fall of 2011, and the trend has now made its way onto handbags. Reminiscent of something right out of Minnie Mouse’s wardrobe, polka dot prints can bring out the playfulness in anyone’s overall look. The magic in polka dots lies in its variety—the print can come in the style of small grain-like dots, or larger dots mashed together, or slightly contorted ones that give a three-dimensional feel. And the best part of it all, the dots themselves don’t really have to be, well, dots. We’ve seen Marc Jacobs outfits and attires from Natalia Vodianova and Olivia Palermo “dotted” with fine squares and even small hearts. Whatever the pattern, the versatility of polka dots can work for a variety of occasions and yet leave the same chic, playful impression to the eyes of any beholder.
On handbags, we prefer to keep the dots themselves simple to preserve its delicate effect on a small surface area. White is an easy choice for the dots to set against darker backgrounds, and provide just the right contrast. We’ve picked out several new arrivals of the Dasein brand (below) sporting these styles, whether you’re in the hunt for a new satchel, hobo bag, or just a small checkbook.

A Standout Blazer: A versatile layer is key, so you could go with a classic black blazer or mix it up with prints.
A Fun Spring Sweater: Skip the wintry woolly knits for a lighter weave and choose a lovly bag to match it. It’ll be perfect to throw on for those cooler beachy nights or insanely air-conditioned offices in the summer.
In general, you should avoid taking out your bag in extreme weather condition. Fog, rain, snow and sleet can lead to water marks or stain on the bag.
To clean your silk bag, make a solution of mild detergent and lukewarm water. Before dipping the bag into the solution, you may want to first apply the solution to a small patch on the bag.
It is better not to rub a silk bag as this can spread out the stain and wear out its fiber.
Just like leather bags, you still need to follow the instructions given by the manufacturer.
Compared with leather bag, cleaning a nylon bag is really easy. Make a solution of lukewarm water and mild detergent or cleaner in a bucket. Dip your bag in the solution for sometime.
To remove any stains, gently circle a soft bristle on its surface. Leave it for sometime before washing it again, this time, in only lukewarm water.
Finally air dry your nylon bag in a location free of direct sunlight.
Generally speaking, a genuine leather bag costs a lot and it is expected to be used for a long time. But if you can’t maintain it well, it will turn to be short-lived. Here are some tips for you to maintain your leather bags. Hope they could be helpful for you.
- Firstly, what you can do is carefully follow the manufacturer instructions that come with your leather bag.
- Secondly, when cleaning your leather bag, you should empty all your contents and remove loose dirt by gently shaking your bag.
- Thirdly, clean it with a dry cloth, wipe out the interior of your bag.
- Fourthly, Dip a damp (definitely not wet) cloth piece in a very mild detergent solution and wipe the surface of your leather bag. To make sure that the cloth piece is not wet, you can wring it out properly after dipping it in the solution.
- Fifthly, Dry your bag thoroughly in a dry, dark shaded location. You may want to avoid drying your bag under direct sunlight as this will make it dry and fade its color.
- Finally, Store properly. When storing unused bags, clean the surface of the leather first and then stuff the bags with cotton wool or cotton fabric to keep the shape of the bags. Put the bag into soft cotton bags and put it in the wardrobe. This can help to avoid distortion from indentation or pressure from other objects in the wardrobe. Ensure that the wardrobe is kept well ventilated, such as a cupboard with louvres, and do not to put too many things in the closet.
