Splurge du Jour: 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 Chanel 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 ...

Splurge du Jour: Burberry The Big Crush in Heart Print Calfskin

For Fall 2013, Burberry‘s Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey played around with latex and heart prints and the latter made its way onto this chic bag for Fall. Today I’m crushing on Burberry‘s adorable The Big Crush in Heart Print Calfskin. It’s a nice departure from Burberry’s recent heavily structured bags with heavy hardware. The ‘Big Crush‘ is ...

Haute for Fall 2011: Diesel Divina Bags

UPDATE: Purchase current and prior Diesel bags here and here. Most of the handbags in our personal collection are either made of leather or exotic materials but every now and then we spot a non-leather, non-exotic bag that meets our ‘haute handbag for Fall‘ criteria. The Diesel Divina bag is one of those bags – and Keri Hilson’s a fan of them too! Made of premium denim, they’re ...

Haute or Not: Balenciaga Edition Ottoman Dupionne Tote

By now we’ve seen enough Balenciaga bags to spot that signature hardware a mile away. So if we had seen this one out on the street and someone would have told us it was a Balenciaga, we wouldn’t have believed them! Unlike many of their other styles, this bag is completely hardware free, and the design is much more basic than those leather moto-style satchels we love. The Balenciaga Edition ...

Haute or not: Marni Medium leather bag

We’ll whip out our credit cards for Marni, virtually anytime. The shoes, the clothes, the accessories – they mostly make us swoon. We have to literally stop ourselves from clicking the ‘Buy’ button on all the Marni goodies we see. But then we saw this Marni bag which stopped us in our virtual tracks. We’re used to the vintage vibe of Marni – think chunky platform heels; ...

Haute or Not: the Kate Spade Sherwood Ida

All of us bag addicts look forward to the changing of the seasons which means a whole slew of brand new bags. So when spring and summer are coming, we start to check out the options – same goes for fall and winter. But when I’m on the hunt for fall bags, I’m looking for some nice designs with earth tone colors, possibly some metallics, and an evening bag or two – I’m not actually ...

Haute or Not: the Foley + Corinna Bar Clutch

I would think that the brand behind the iconic “City Tote” would come up with something better than this. The Foley + Corinna Bar Clutch looks like a flat black lunch bag with a gold majorette baton as a handle. Really, Foley + Corinna? Is this the best you could come up with? There’s no real design here; the bag looks cheap and highly impractical. I mean really, what can you put ...

Gustto Umbria Bag

Chic carryalls are hard to find since they usually come in the form of a shapeless tote or bulky bag. But the Gustto Umbria Bag , despite its odd shape is the cutest carryall you can find. The super soft leather bag features puckered pockets on the sides, quilted, layered, angled front pockets secured with a large buckle, and a roomy top opening that zips closed. Two double handles allow you to carry ...

Turn on the Woodworks

I love to see ordinary materials transformed to give the illusion of unlikely pieces. Like the materials on this Isabella Fiore “Woodworks” Handheld Bag. Complementary leathers have been treated to resemble wood, and with the washed brass hardware, the result is a crisp, simple fall bag. It’s nice to see Isabella Fiore tone down their usual embellishments to do a simple purse.  Read More →

In Fashion, You Don’t Always Have to ‘Conphorm’

Though I rock the double G’s (Gucci), appreciate the bourgeois browns (Louis Vuitton), and even fawn over the double F’s (Fendi), I can’t help but long for something simple and logo-free. Enter Conphorm. Designer Josh Jakus, a former architect, combined sensibility with a minimal design aesthetic and created a chic, unadorned collection of pressed wool felt carry-alls. Not only are their shapes ...

Geometry Rules

I hated geometry but I love fashionable geometric shapes. That’s why I’m a fan of the Tria ($199) from Poesis and the Risk Taker ($100) from The House of Muses. Created by a former research scientist, and former model, respectively, the triangular shapes of these bags are symbols of high–fashion. The clean, sharp lines give the bags an edge while maintaining that haute couture look, but on a ...
