Luxe Life

Malini Murjani lives a luxurious life, and her handbags evoke feelings of luxury as well. Her collection includes a wide array of precious stones, embossed leathers, and exotic skins. I live this petite python clutch. The sculpted, hump–shaped top is impeccably detailed with whip stitching, and the subtle ruching adds a classy appeal.

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Which bag is the shiniest of them all? The Metallic Mirror Leather Tote by Alessandro Dell’Acqua. I have never seen a bag quite like this. The leather shines as if it were a mirror made of gold. As if it weren’t shiny enough, the bags is ornamented with gold metal tags, and gold leather trim. With all this gold, it just may be worth the $1400 price tag. Perfect for the narcissistic fashionista.  Read More →

Haute or Not: Valentino Embellished Diva Bag

Valentino is a legend in luxury design, with his international fame, haute couture house, and distinctive brand recognition. That’s why I was confused when I saw this bag. Unlike anything Valentino, the Embellished Diva Bag is an explosion of sequins and satin, oversized jewels, and an outrageous Galliano style print. The only thing reminiscent of Valentino is the price ($2,450). So is the bag ...

I’m a "Fan"

Monica Botkier has done it again. She’s designed another large and luxurious leather bag–the “Fan Hobo”, which has the same fabulous styling of the original “Trigger,” but this time, in the form of a hobo. The bag brings to mind thoughts of horseback riding, with the cool riding boots and jodhpurs, (and without the uncomfortable saddle and stable stench). Own it for $695 at  Read More →

Rock on

Why didn’t anyone think of this before? Instructions: take an alligator skin, wrap it around itself a few times, let the tail hang over the front, and voila! You’ve got yourself a clutch! This bag is amazing-so simple yet so chic. The price is a bit steep, but there has been a shortage of alligators. $1695-$2495, B. Romanek.  Read More →
