EDITORS PICKS: Cult Gaia
09 March, 2018
Todays Editors Picks is my personal love letter to CULT GAIA. It definitely was love at first sight. I knew about this brand for a couple of months and already included it in a Editors Pick back in August last year (read HERE).
When my friend Amelie came to Cape Town in December and introduced me to her Ark Bag in real life, it immediately made it on top of my “material wishlist”. Unfortunately, the LA brand doesn’t ship to South Africa. But lucky me I received it as a Christmas Present and my sister brought it from Germany when she came down here at the beginning of January.
Normally I wear a lot of black, grey & white and barely have anything brown in my wardrobe. But the Ark Bag goes surprisingly well with nearly all of my outfits. I really love the wooden texture as it really is something different and new and an absolute eye-catcher. I really have to stop myself not to wear it to every single outfit every day.
I get a lot of questions about my exact version. Cult Gaia offers the bag in three different sizes: “mini”, “small” & “large”. I have it in the size “small” which is basically medium. For me its the perfect size as I can easily fit my sunglasses, wallet & phone in it and still have space for more stuff. My color is the version is the Chestnut, but keep in mind that the bags are made out of real wood – so the colors can vary a bit from bag to bag. Which – for me – makes it even more unique.
I did not take too long to totally fall in love with this brand and their entire bag collection. And whilst clicking through their online shop I found another version of the ark to obsess about: the ACRYLIC TORTOISE ONE. Which I think is the perfect alternative for winter. Not only because of the color but also the texture of the acryl. Definitely added to my wishlist!
