Splurge du Jour: Chanel Vintage Heart Shaped Tote

CHANEL VINTAGE Heart Shaped Tote
If you’re in the mood for some great Chanel pieces (and who isn’t ever in the mood for some great Chanel pieces?), check out the Vintage Chanelicon shop on Farfetch.com! One particular standout piece is this Chanel Vintage Heart Shaped Tote. his glossy patent leather bag comes in a cutesy heart shape with Chanel’s signature quilting on the body and interlocking CC logo in white across the front. A tiny chain handle at the top adds a touch of elegance to this trendy piece, and there’s a gold zipper around the bag to make it easy to stash your stuff inside. It’s a splurge (as all Chanel bags are but remember – they’re investment pieces!) at £3,299.24 but it’s so cute and chic, it’s totally worth it.

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.

Got a cool $10-$50K to spare? For the price of a brand new car or down payment on a house, you can instead own one of these expensive Fall bags!

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?

Haute or Not: Burberry Bloomsbury Nubuck Hand-Painted Bag

Haute or Not: Burberry Bloomsbury Nubuck Hand-Painted Bag - indigo green and dark honey
Burberry is a high-end British brand that is known for its signature check print and is synonymous with luxury. Burberry bags are typically sleek and polished, and very well made (like one of my all-time favorites, the Burberry Warrior bag), and the price tags reflect that. So it’s baffling how this Burberry Bloomsbury Nubuck Hand-Painted Bag ($3,995) came to be part of the Burberry Fall 2014 collection. (more…)

Dannijo’s Fall handbag line

It’s been just a few months since Dannijo released their first handbag line. It’s not unusual for accessory designers to branch out to other markets, and since sisters Danielle and Jodi Snyder have spent the past five years mastering the jewelry market, why not launch fab handbags too? The result was a line of beautiful jewel-detailed arm candy, naturally.

Dannijo Hunter houndstooth Dannijo Lenox Dannijo Ricci Mini

Dannijo’s Fall handbag line, which just launched, gives us a sneak peek of what’s hot for fall. The collection is full of houndstooth prints in very season-appropriate colors, like emerald green, navy blue, a deep red, burgundy, camel and of course, black and white. In addition to the check prints, there are bags with touches of calf hair, colorblock Italian calf leather and a few particularly fun iridescent bags. And of course, many of the bags are adorned in baubles, including on-trend pearls, brooches, and several ‘bibbed’ bags.

Haute Bag of the Week: Valentino Garavani Camu Butterfly Tote
Obsessed with butterfly and camouflage prints? The new Valentino Camu Butterfly Tote is for you!
Haute Bag of the Week: Valentino Garavani Camu Butterfly Tote

I love a good butterfly print or camo print so I don’t need much convincing to rock either one. But mixed together?! Woo, chile – I REALLY love it! It’s not surprising to see there’s yet another Valentino creation to obsess over. Ever since Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli took the design reigns, the brand has been delivering all the good goods. And this particular tote is damn good! The bag is a basic tote bag which is nothing new, but with the Valentino stamp on it, it immediately becomes a luxury creation that we’re all lusting after. The double handled bag features a camouflage butterflies pattern atop calfskin leather, with two butterflies resting at the bottom of each handle. Also on the outside is a gold, hot stamped logo. Inside, the bag is lined in leather and there’s a detachable, black leather pouch. (more…)
