Burberry’s ‘Choppy’ Check Bucket Bag

I don’t blame Burberry for wanting to try something new, I really don’t. I mean, Louis Vuitton continues to come up with millions of new ways to re-design its logo and re-brand itself, so why not Burberry? But mixing up a plaid pattern is not quite the same as re-doing a logo in denim or grafitti, and this bag is looking less ‘luxury’, and more ‘Dooney‘. The Burberry ...

Weekly WTF??!! Michael Kors Beverly Gator Watch Clutch

I know this bag isn’t new but it was so tacky I didn’t feel compelled to write about it before. But now that I’ve introduced the Weekly WTF category on What’s Haute, I think it’s worhy to discuss. Michael Kors must be out of his mind. He’s charging $3,000 for a Seiko watch band strapped to some gator skin? The Beverly Gator Watch Clutch is one of the worst bags ...

Weekly WTF: Chloe Multicolor Saskia Clutch

I’m seriously thinking about starting a Weekly ‘WTF’ category on What’s Haute because for every six gorgeous bags, there’s one that makes you scratch your head, turn up your nose and say, “What the f–k?” This Chloe Saskia clutch (€ 995) fits into that category perfectly. I give Chloe credit for originality but this bag is comical at best. It looks ...

Chloe Transitions Color Block Bag

Chloe couldn’t have given this bag a better name because obviously the brand is going through some transitions themselves. What is this acid-trip, rainbow connection excuse for a bag? There is nothing cute about the pleating, the confetti colors and post-it-note strip fabric pieces on the bag. Even the brown leather trim looks cheap. If I had to find something nice to say, I guess it would be ...

Zac Posen’s ‘Hot Dog’ Handbag

Zac Posen Ariel Shoulder Bag Why oh why did a brilliant designer like Zac Posen create this hideous bag? He’s the king of brilliantly draped dresses and one of the few designers whose entire debut handbag line impressed me, and now he has ruined it all with this! Is it a hot dog or a handbag? The bag might actually be cute if it were a wristlet or even a handheld clutch, but the oversized handles ...

Barney’s Blanket Bucket Satchel

+ = When you shop at a high-end store like Barney’s, you tend to have high-end expectations, right? I would think that if Barney’s chose to create private label handbags, they’d be so fabulous you’d think they were handmade creations designed by some premier Italian designer. So when I saw this Barney’s branded creation that looks ‘inspired’ by Bert from ...

Chloe’s Craft Project

I learned how to crochet in 5th grade in my home economics class and thought it was the coolest thing to make granny squares (yes that once was cool). But that was then, and this is 2007. Are granny squares really what’s haute right now? The Chloe Katie embroidered bag looks like a craft project you find in some old bin in your grandmother’s attic, except that this craft project costs ...

Moncler’s Haute Couture Soccer Ball

What is this? Is it a soccer ball or a handbag? Or is it a handbag dressed as a soccer ball? It is Halloween, after all. This is definitely one of the most hideous bags I’ve ever seen. The top handles and frame have a classic appeal, but then you go lower and see the rest of this atrocity. This bag is stuffed with 100% duvet which makes it way too bulky even without anything inside it; imagine ...

What A Joke!

Source The luxury houses seem to be on a downward spiral. Fendi is producing nothing buy fugly bags, and Louis Vuitton seems to be competing with them for the title. LV collaborated with controversial painter Richard Prince to create the ‘Joke’ Bag for it’s Spring ’08 runway show. This hideous python-trimmed bag, along with others from the show, feature a combination of Prince’s ...

And The Fendi Fug Goes On…

One thing I can always count on is my love hate affair with Fendi. Fendi always gets me up, and then always lets me down. I so long for the days when ‘Fendi’ wasn’t synonymous with ‘fugly’; the days of the classic double F’s, the simple striped shoulder bags, and high quality leather. Now it seems Fendi is on a quest to outdo itself with ugly bags, season after ...

Three’s a Crowd

Coco Chanel once said something like “put everything on and then take one thing off.” Luxury jewelry designer Kara Ross creates elegantly beautiful pieces full of precious gems, wood, gold and diamonds. I think her jewels are the perfect pieces to accompany you on an haute night out, that is, if you can afford them. Her recently launched line of handbags however, needs to heed Coco’s ...

Haute or Not – Juicy Couture Georgia Patchwork Hobo

Juicy Couture bags have come a long way since terry cloth companions to the once ubiquitous sweatsuits. Lately, they’ve been much more toned down – simple leather satchels, hobos and totes, with a few Juicy details, like chains or charms. In my opinion, Juicy bags may never reach ‘It’ status, but the designs have been good enough to justify a purchase. However, this atrocity, ...

Pop Goes the Dooney

Sigh… What has become of the legacy of Dooney & Bourke? What ever happened to the classic bags, high quality leather and brass hardware, and simplicity of design? This is one of those bags that left me utterly speechless when I first saw it. The only clue that this is a Dooney & Bourke bag are the D’s, B’s and the Dooney & Bourke name scrawled across the popsicles. Popsicles? Yes, ...

Jumping the Shark

For those of you who don’t know, that term is used for the point where a good TV show goes bad. For example, once the producers kill off an important character or change a critical storyline, the show usually goes down the tubes. I think the same can be said in fashion, or at least it should be. I have been very satisfied with Gustto’s trademark slouchy bags with large studs. And they ...
