Mike & Chris’ Hoodie-Inspired Handbags

Husband and wife design team Mike and Christine Gonzalez reinvented the hoodie with their eponymous line, Mike & Chris. They succeeded at creating the perfect stylish hoody for women, and now they’ve ventured into handbag design and the result is equally fabulous, hoodie-inspired purses. The styles consist of easy pieces that look as comfortable as their hoodies; that is, if you could ‘wear’ ...

The Timeless Beauty of Burberry

Burberry is one brand that, in my opinion, hasn’t been completely tainted by Canal Street knockoffs. The Burberry check pattern seems to be difficult to duplicate, and I’m glad that at least one luxury brand can maintain its uniqueness. The Buckled Leather Hobo is a classy and versatile hobo. The color scheme is neutral but not boring, and the plaid print is surprisingly anti-trendy so ...

A Turtle on Your Shoulder

Turtles and fashion? I never thought I’d see the day that one influenced the other. But A. Testoni did. The Turtle Hobo is allegedly “the Italian leather shoulder bag that everyone is talking about.” I wouldn’t go that far, but I do really like this bag. It’s a totally different approach to the hobo – a removable inner gusset pouch is surrounded by S&M style leather ...

Haute or Not: Michael by Michael Kors Bags

Damn Blogger! Their ‘spam-prevention robots’ locked my blog because they detected that characteristics of my blog resembled a spam blog! I’ve been doing this for a year and now I’m considered a spammer??? What’s up with that Blogger??? Since I’m already in a bad mood… Just a few months ago, I lauded the praises of Michael Kors. Now I’m considering taking ...

Gucci Sucks!

Gucci, to me, has always been the Mercedes-Benz of handbag brands – iconic, luxurious, and highly coveted. I had a few vintage Gucci bags given to me throughout my life, but on a trip to Italy in 2005, my mother bought me my first, brand spanking new Gucci hobo. I fell in love instantly, clutching my new bag tight, (receiving many strange looks from my boyfriend I might add), and promised to ...

Who Did It Better?

Is there true originality in fashion? It seems as though whenever a designer comes out with a new style, several other designers happen to have the same idea. It’s tough to say who did it first, but who do you think did it better? Anna Corinna, Crosshatch Satchel, $398 OR Isabella Fiore, Tula Tote, $695 AND Poesis Slouchy Tria, $175 OR Bottega Veneta Lichti Fume, $10, 100(!!!)  Read More →

Is Brooklyn in the House?

Designers are often inspired by past trends, historical periods and even other designers. While that is all well and good, I prefer designers who buck tradition and search for interesting and unique things from which to design their lines. Take this bag from Bliss Lau. Inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge, the Suspension Chain Tote from her Spring 2007 collection has crisscrossed brass chains draped down ...

New York, New York

Aleya NY is a newcomer on the handbag scene but her designs suggest she’s a seasoned pro. The Wyoming Collection has two great Fall styles: The Wendy Hobo, $412, and the Sienna Satchel, $415 Both bags, made of sturdy Italian leather, are accented with braided rope straps, angled zip pockets, and a braided zipper pull attached to both ends. I love the look and functionality of the front pockets, ...

Haute or Not: Candela NYC Handbag

I adore handbags, I love Latin-flavor, and I like ponchos. But all in one? I’m not sure. The square shape of this hobo is refreshingly unique, and the chocolate brown leather against the Southwest-inspired color scheme is rich. However, the overall look is slightly dated, and the oversized belt closure is distracting. So what do you think: haute or not? ($363,  Read More →

Get Beyonce’s Bag

Beyonce Knowles is a celebrity fashionista. She’s got her own clothing line, fabulously styled looks, and tons of haute handbags. She was recently spotted at the Nice Airport toting this House of Dereon bag, which she also gifted to Tyra Banks on her show. Now you too can get a haute handbag like Beyonce’s. Sondra Roberts “Leather & Canvas Caged Hobo” is very simliar to ...

All Chained Up

Well, Spring 2007 Fashion Week has come and gone, but the memories of it live on throughout the world wide web, with countless recaps, footage and photos. I found this interesting handbag from Heatherette. It’s a simple white hobo with Chanel-like chain straps. I’m only drawn to it because of the chain print, which I think jazzes up the simplicity of the bag. I have to admit it’s ...

Like a caramel latte, this bag is rich, creamy and smooth. The Small Studded Belt Hobo is a hand crafted creation by Brazilian designer, Elisa Atheniense. With its strategically placed straps and studs, the simple shape in soft leather, and bright caramel color, this bag displays subtle opulence. Just another beauty from Brazil.  Read More →
