Blembal

Friday, February 4, 2011


Ok, so I wanted to show you these interesting purses by Blembal. I first saw these during Fashion Days Zurich - they had a table set up in the VIP lounge where the owner was there with a few different pieces from his line. I thought they were really odd. But THEN I saw a cool girl carrying one and all of a sudden I could see myself with one! (I wanted to be cool too!) They are different...and I like that. I think you'd have to see them in person. But the thing is - they are heavy! And I'm not sure in what way I would store things in them. But my final ruling is that I would gladly take one. You? (Are you thinking I am totally off my rocker?)

Girl about Oslo said...

No you are not totally of the rocker...
But they seem unpractical????

Coco makes a great point, give me some Jacobs Creek white vine,and we are rolling:)

Have a great day gorgeous...

They are definitely unique - go for it (although it doesn't look like you'd be able to put much in them!) Have a great weekend.

Alina A. said...

they look unique but I guess not too useful when having to carry many things.xx

I like the look of these - maybe for one of those evenings when I'm just carrying a clutch purse, but want to swing something over my arm and look stylish at the same time? Like the champagne idea though ;-)

I thought that it was a thurmos cover or something! I think it looks really cool though! I wonder what makes it heavy. I put a lot of stuff in my purse, so I am inclined to go for a purse that is light.

Jess said...

Oh I like it! But if its heavy, I'm not sure I could carry it for all that long....

Hollie said...

I kinda like it! They look like a little thermos sleeve.

very married said...

i can't tell! i thought it was a thermos at first!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

those are super interestng - i love! happy friday, friend!

Staley Mc said...

How neat! I really like the shape!

Teenage Bride said...

Although these are incredibly interesting, I don't hink they are my style. Daring indeed!

Cara said...

very cool!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I totally think it's cool. I'd like to rock the black one :)

Have a great weekend, honey! xoxo

styleforlife said...

Nooooo you are not, you got style girl!
hehehe...
PS what's happening Monday, inquiring minds
MUST know. :)

Anabel Fournier said...

Very cool!

Buckeroomama said...

I can see how it might look cool, but I will have to pass on this one. Not big enough for all that I'd want to put in a purse. :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Those could be really great, very interesting shape. Kind of like the one item in your closet that isn't exactly your style, but adds some pop? Hmm...

Coco Coterie said...

Teaching tonight, weather permitting, as we're getting freezing drizzle. But, the temperature is around 35 degrees. Tomorrow, a soiree. Where? Here. :) You? xxx Alexandra

design traveller said...

Sara Szatmary said...

Totally unexpected. You could def pull it off!

Alleen said...

These are so cool...but like you, not sure about the weight with everything else I have to carry around! Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

ps Love the new title!

E said...

Those bags make me think of a picnic or hiking through the woods.

Anonymous said...

When I first saw these, I thought 'water bottle'! But I could totally see myself wearing this. It's different and fun! But it might be hard to get your stuff out of it... I can imagine my keys falling right to the bottom and never coming out. Maybe it would be a good way to carry rolled up newspapers and stationary and papers for school...

Thanks so much for your swimming tips! Much appreciated! :)

It's funny how these things work. There are times when I hate a certain item with a passion.. until I see someone really inspiring (or as you more sincerely put it, cool) rocking it.

Nikki said...

I'm with Coco. A bottle of wine would be perfect ;)

Marissa said...

It's definitely interesting, and I don't think you're totally off your rocker, but it reminds me a bit of a canteen or water bottle...

Kellie Collis said...

It looks interesting! Have a beautiful weekend, Kellie xx

Diana said...

I sorta like them too, and I bet you could totally pull them off.

I agree that I think they're meant to carry bottles of alcohol. But it would look sort of strange if you have like three of them at once. So it's not really practical in that sense, if you only drink one bottle at a time, and really who does that?

Or you could store your thermos or rolled up papers?

Nanne said...

I like them! It's the kind of bag that really adds something extra to an outfit. And I was thinking like Alexandra - champagne!

Valerie said...

You are not off your rocker at all, I think they're so cool! I'd totally take one too. ;)

getting Fit said...

Hmm cant see myself ever using it unless going to tennis? ; )

I Am sure my husband would ? me still though!

modanista junkie said...

I wasn't quite sure what these were, but they are definitely interested. That's for sure. I like them.

Audrey Allure said...

At first I thought they were thermoses! Definitely an interesting look :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Once I see a cool girl with something I immediately need it!

Pop Champagne said...

lol if they were bigger they could carry golf clubs? yeah totally makes a difference when you see someone cool wearing something huh, like the other day I saw his chick at american apparel wore these high rise pants that I would never have thought of getting, but then I got them bcause of her!

ellie said...

Very interesting. Just what would I carry in them. Someone gave me a tin of cookies in this shape once.

Dressing Up For Me said...

Perfect for your water bottle or for the coffee thermos perhaps? ;)

Josie said...

I don't know how I feel about these... They do look super heavy!

Angelica Ng said...

Purses? Haha! I thought they were some kind of water bottle holder thing. Super unique! But not really my style.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

It probably says a lot about my tea-addicted state that my first thought was, "I was looking for a cute thermos holder!" Ooops. ; p

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Interesting! I like things that are a new take on something we use every day.

*Simply Colette* said...

Very chic! You're already so cool ;) Have a great weekend!

Amélia Delessi said...

Adorable, I love the bag. I would definately wear it, maybe you can put some of your simple objects, that way it won't be heavier.

ryan said...

They are very perfect for carrying a beverage! Love them! Have a great weekend

Helen said...

You know, they look pretty cool, but what could you fit in it? A water bottle? Some beer? That's about it! ;)

SMASH said...

Ooh girl, I'm not gonna lie I thought that was a thermos at first! An incredibly chic one at that ;)

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

i hear you total! when i 1st looked i thought "weird" too, but then after reading about you seeing a cool looking girl with one my mind went into visionary view and hello! rad is what.

i get it and perhaps maybz gwen stefani or an olsen twin could be sporting this fash very soon too!!! xo ♥

Tee, Passports and Postcards said...

It's really unique. I have a bag or two that's really heavy by itself (leather+studs, chains, etc)and I end up not using it too often.

Joanne Faith said...

Those look crazy! I would have to see them on someone to see it I think.

Oh I would love to have this as a thermos on future picknicks, but I guess it's a bag, no?

Renée said...

Yes they look great, but I don't think they are very useful.. I don't see how my camera can fit in that small tube ;)

Jenni Austria Germany said...

haha, i change my mind on things like this all the time, once i've actually seen them 'in action.' (plus, i want to be cool too. one day...)

i'd totally sport one! but i do love me a whackadoodle bag.

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

so i've just come back cos i saw this and thought of you immediately! have you seen her designs before? i love them. xo ♥

Bad Taste Toast said...

Funny little purse! I first thought it was a kind of portable telescope :D
I think I couldn't pull it off but it definitely can look uber cool with the right outfit!

kalie brynn. said...

Woah, those are interesting! I like that they are different too...But I don't know if I could pull them off! I am so used to my Mary Poppins carry-all bags. I do think it would be fun to carry one of these around! Girl, you're cool with or without one, though!

cathy. said...

These look really unusual, but pretty cool.

The Many Colours of Happiness said...

I like it for some weird reason! they're really different!
