Jourdan Dunn, Rihanna and SJP to design custom Fendi 3Baguette

Jourdan Dunn, Rihanna and SJP to design custom Fendi 3Baguette

Several of New York’s most fashionable ladies, Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jourdan Dunn, artist Rachel Feinstein and Man Repeller blogger Leandra Medine, are teaming up with luxury house Fendi to give its iconic baguette a makeover! As Sex and the City fans know, SJP as ‘Carrie Bradshaw‘ helped put the Fendi baguette on the fashion map. Model Jourdan has strutted her stuff down the Fendi runways. And Rihanna has toted and/or owns more Fendi bags than probably all of the ladies combined!
Fendi 3Baguette Bag

Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi have given these fashionistas full access to the design studio so that they can reinvent the new Fendi 3Baguette bag – “a style launched at the end of last year that reinterprets the Fendi accessory with a more structured shape and the FF logo becoming a lock rather than simply a decorative element,” according to WWD. Since each lady has her own unique sense of style, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of customized Fendi each of them comes up with. Will Rihanna create something edgy and trendy? Will SJP design a clutch with a ladylike feel? Will Leandra opt for a look that’s more androgynous? We can’t wait to see the final products!

Each bag will be unveiled at a cocktail party and then displayed at the new flagship Fendi store on Madison Avenue in New York, from February 13 and March 13. Afterwards, the bags will be auctioned off via a dedicated online auction site, launch3baguetteauction.fendi.com, with proceeds going to each woman’s selected charity:

Rihanna: The Clara Lionel Foundation
Sarah Jessica Parker: The Brain Trauma Foundation
Jourdan Dunn: The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America
Rachel Feinstein: The Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital
Leandra Medine: The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund

Over the Rainbow: Valentino Resort 2015

Valentino rainbow Rockstud Resort 2015 handbags
Just when you thought the Valentino Rockstud collection couldn’t get any more fabulous, they go and add rainbow prints (stripes, chevrons and squares), and crystals!

I admit – when the Rockstud collection first made its debut, even though I loved it (especially the shoes), I gave it a season or two before the trend would be over. But oh, how wrong I was! After several years, the Valentino Rockstud is still going strong. The brand keeps innovating on the collections and they get better and better each season. For Valentino Resort 2015, the colors of the rainbow have been painted on the now iconic shoes and tons of handbags as well. They’re so beautiful and bright and on my wish list. There are so many luscious options to choose from, including minaudieres, clutches and totes, double handle bags, shoulder bags and backpacks.

Haute Bag of the Week: Matter Matters Deco Clutch

Haute Bag of the Week: MATTER MATTERS Deco clutch; leather and acrylic; side view
Just as blush/nude pink is the best neutral for Spring, gray is the perfect neutral for Fall. Especially a soft gray with contrasting accents. This Matter Matters Deco clutch immediately caught my eye, with its sleek leather body and mod, Art Deco and Cubist acrylic details.

Made of a gorgeous slate-gray leather lambskin, this triangular shaped clutch features an artistic black acrylic frame topped with an ivory cube, giving it a retro look. It closes at the top with a magnetic clasp fastening and tucks perfectly into a larger tote or under your arm. It would look great against a solid colored dress, like red or pink for a cool colorblock look.

Anya Hindmarch Digestives Clutch Gives us a Chic Way to Carry Cookies

Anya Hindmarch Digestives clutch printed elaphe and leather
Have you ever wanted to carry your snacks in a snakeskin clutch? If so, here’s the perfect bag for you! The Anya Hindmarch Digestives clutch is a barrel shaped clutch made of printed elaphe snake skin and leather. It’s printed to resemble a pack of McVitie’s Digestive Biscuits (cookies) and really looks like a high-end snack! The bag is part of Anya Hindmarch‘s ‘Counter Culture’ collection, which derives inspiration from iconic household motifs.
Anya Hindmarch Digestives printed clutch - elaphe and leatherinside
Featuring a detachable calfskin leather tassel and wristlet strap, the mini bag is lined in suede and has a zip closure at both ends. It’s cute and cheeky but pricey for a little ‘cookie’ bag: $1,450! That’s a lot of money for such a little bag that can carry little more than a pack of cookies.

Haute or Not: Alexander Wang Sneaker Bags (As Seen on Rihanna)

Alexander Wang sneaker bags
Alexander Wang has taken a super sporty direction this year, in both his boxing-inspired collection for H&M, and his sneaker-inspired Spring/Summer 2015 collection, which he debuted last week during New York Fashion Week. Sitting front row at his show was Rihanna, who has been rocking looks from his H&M collab as well as his upcoming SS15 line. At the show she wore Wang, of course, and we spotted one of his new sneaker-inspired bags on her lap.

Alexander Wang’s ‘Sneaker’ Bags ($1,295) are quite the departure from his previous accessories collections, which featured pebbled leather cult favorites like the Rocco Duffel and Diego Bucket Bag. Those bags were edgy, and had a ‘downtown girl’ aesthetic. He then moved on to a sleeker aesthetic with more structured handbags like his Emile Tote and Pelican Sling. These sneaker bags look like they were loosely inspired by several famous kicks, including Adidas Stan Smiths, Nike Air Jordans and Air Force Ones.

The collection as a whole is really trendy and definitely a step in a different direction for Alexander Wang. The bags seem to be skewed towards a younger, sportier woman – sneakerheads who love high fashion? They’d make fun conversation pieces and cool collectors items, but unless you’re a die-hard sports lover, I couldn’t see anyone wearing these on a daily basis.

Christian Louboutin Multicolor Stud Bags: Haute or Not

Haute or Not: Christian Louboutin Multicolor Stud Bags - Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Multicolor Stud Flap Bag, Multicolor Studded Bowler Bag and Panettone Chevron Studded Leather Zip-Around Wallet
Listen – I’m a sucker for pretty much anything studded. But in my opinion, metal or monochrome studding looks a bit more sleek than multicolor. And if you’re going to do colors, just keep it simple! Christian Louboutin‘s Sweet Charity Multicolor Stud Flap Bag, Multicolor Studded Bowler Bag and Panettone Chevron Studded Leather Zip-Around Wallet each feature an explosion of rainbow-colored studs that looks more like offerings at a candy store than luxury details.

Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Multicolor Stud Flap BagThe Sweet Charity Bag has a smattering of colorful pointy studs ALL OVER THE BAG with a black leather bow on the flap with even more studs – this time in gunmetal. Can you say “Too much”?

Christian Louboutin Multicolor Studded Bowler Bag

The Multicolor Studded Bowler Bag and Panettone Chevron Studded Leather Zip-Around Wallet feature a earthier array of colored, pointy studs in lines of varying thickness and geometric patterns (chevrons). The colors and designs look the part of the Fall season but again, the studding in six different colors might just be a little too much.

5 Bags You Can Expect to See at New York Fashion Week (#NYFW)

5 Bags You Can Expect to See at New York Fashion Week
Over the years, New York Fashion Week has become less about what’s happening on the runways and more about what’s happening on the streets outside of the shows. Fashionistas and everyone else line up outside of Lincoln Center and other fashion show venues for a glimpse of what everyone’s wearing, or to be snapped by a street style photog to show off what you’re wearing. So wearing eye-catching, statement-making accessories is important! Especially when it comes to shoes and handbags.

As an It bag lover and self-proclaimed handbag addict, I am all too familiar with the important role of handbags at Fashion Week. Numerous people have approached me, asking “Ooh, where’d you get that bag?” or something along those lines. And during fashion week, I’ve personally had many people snap pics of just my bags (particularly my hot pink Celine).

You’re always bound to see your standard array of classics, like Hermes Birkin and Kelly bags, Chanel Flap bags and of course, a selection of Celine Luggage, Phantoms and Trapeze totes. But aside from those givens, there are a few more statement-making, attention-getting bags that are bound to be snapped by the likes of Phil Oh.

Check out the 5 bags you can expect to see at New York Fashion Week:

1. Givenchy Antigona Box Calf Satchel Bag, $1,965
Givenchy Antigona Box Calf Satchel Bag - Red
This bag is a favorite of models, street style stars and the Kardashians, so it’s bound to make an appearance on the arms of the fashion set during NYFW.

2. 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Second OMG Pouch, $275
3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Second OMG Pouch
3.1 Phillip Lim bags always are staples among the fashion set. This zip pouch and is made of holographic, metallic lambskin and features “OMG” debossing on the face, so it’s bound to turn heads.

3. Valentino ‘Rockstud Camo – Medium Lock’ Canvas & Leather Shoulder Bag
Valentino 'Rockstud Camo - Medium Lock' Canvas & Leather Shoulder Bag
Pretty much every piece of Valentino’s Rockstud collection makes an appearance at every fashion week. The Rockstud pumps have been a fashion favorite for years but the bags are making their way up the popular list, too.

4. Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Nano Baby mini leather tote, $2,150
Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Nano Baby mini leather tote - Orange
This bag is another favorite of actresses and models and is quickly reaching ‘It’ bag status. So naturally, it will be making its way around NYFW!

5. Chanel Large graffiti printed canvas backpack embellished with multicolored ropes, $3,800
Chanel Large graffiti printed canvas backpack embellished with multicolored ropes
As seen in the Spring/Summer 2014 show, this backpack got not-so-rave reviews, but that hasn’t stopped fashionistas and fashionistos from carrying it anyway!

Which bags do you hope to see or plan on toting to NYFW?

Victoria Justice carries Edie Parker’s Flavia #Hashtag clutch to the VMAs

Victoria Justice with Edie Parker's Flavia #Hashtag clutch at the VMAs
It’s hard to wear an outfit like this and still have your handbag be the center of attention, but Victoria Justice managed to pull that off. The singer/actress hit the 2014 MTV VMAs red carpet wearing a white Alice + Olivia tube top paired with a black (leather?) fringed and feathered Lublu Kira Plastinina high-low skirt. That alone was a lot of look, but her accessories stole the show too. She wore a pair of Jimmy Choo Maya Studded Black Suede Pointy Toe Pumps and carried Edie Parker’s Flavia #Hashtag clutch ($1,595).

The clutch was the highlight of Victoria’s look. The sparkly yellow/green bag is handmade of custom-poured acrylic and is part of the Emoji Accessories M’Oticons collection, Edie Parker’s collaboration with Del Toro and Moda Operandi. That exact clutch is unavailable but Edie Parker has a ton of other clutch options available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. In case you don’t see an Edie Parker bag you like, you can create a Bespoke clutch on the brand’s website. Just select the shape, font and colors from their palette. Each Bespoke clutch is unique, and handcrafted in the USA!
