With “The Pirates of the Caribbean” now in theaters, it’s inevitable that designers pick up on the trend. Tylie Malibu offers a remarkable leather bag in the spirit of pirates, the Handstitched Benatar. The Handstitched Benatar is detailed with studs depicting a skull and an anchor, but is also available in solid colors (Black, White, Teal, and Bronze). Check it out at  Read More →

Wood Paneling Gets a Makeover

Wood paneling generally conjures up memories of tacky 70’s home décor and Chrysler minivans. Tivi puts wood paneling to better use, in this attractive and sleek clutch.

Hop on the Hudson

I love this trend of equestrian inspired bags. Kenneth Cole has this gorgeous, roomy, Hudson Hobo available in leather, linen, lace and washed croc. This one, in brown washed metallic leather is detailed with just enough studs so that it’s not too overwhelming or busy. The shape is dynamic and it fits just perfectly beneath your arm. At $239.99, the price isn’t too shabby either.  Read More →

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 →

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 ...

Unleash your inner artist

What’s not to love about World According to Jess? Especially her bags from the Arthack collection. Jessica Alpert-Goldman consistently designs wonderfully wacky bags, and these two in my opinion are the chicest. The Arthack bags are a throwback to the paint–by–number books from childhood, except a lot more fashionable. And they’re affordable: $120 for the Clutch, $190 for the Everyday.  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 →

Fashion Ransom

Dooney & Bourke is regressing in maturity. In an attempt to reach a younger audience, they have alienated long-time fans of the pebbled leather, duck-embossed handbags. This bag looks like a ransom note made up of letters cut-out of magazines. Should we alert the fashion police?  Read More →

The Nathan Tote, comes in whimsical summer stripes, accented by turquoise leather. At $338, it’s a bit pricey, but it’s so cute that you’ll soon forget.  Read More →
