Karl Lagerfeld wants you to spend $3,400 on this Chanel Bricolage Backpack

Out of all the bags I own and have owned, I have yet to purchase a Chanel. I really want one, but as the prices for new Chanel bags rival a down payment for a house, I’m holding off for now. If I were to drop $3-5K on a Chanel though, it most certainly would not be this Chanel Bricolage Backpack that looks like what I call a ‘lazy Sunday afternoon’ project. As first seen on the ...

I see London, I see France, I see…Jalan Sahba’s Ophelia bag

Our latest ‘Fashion Inspiration Comes From Everywhere‘ find is this interestingly-shaped ‘Ophelia’ clutch by designer Jalan Sahba.

Check out the largest, luxury beach bag EVER: the Chanel Hula Hoop Bag

The real fun of fashion week is seeing some of the craziest, most ridiculous stuff, off the runway and on, particularly at the international shows. Fashion has a short attention span so designers really have to ‘bring it’ and find creative ways to get people’s attention. Karl Lagerfeld is a master at that. Between saying controversial things and designing items that are true conversation ...

The new Céline ‘It’ bag: rolled leather and satin ‘lunch’ bags, as seen on the Céline Spring 2013 ready-to-wear runway

Céline has had its fair share of It bags: the Leather Luggage/Boston Tote, the Trapeze bag the colorblock Clutch Pouch and the new Céline Edge bag. So, that said, does Phoebe Philo and the folks at the brand now think they can create anything and turn it into a haute handbag? As seen on the runway at their 2013 ready-to-wear show during Paris Fashion Week were these rolled top bags, that look like ...

Haute or not: Marc Jacobs Spotted Teddies shearling hobo bag

I’m not much of a pet person but I wouldn’t mind having one of these luxury creatures in the house.

Achilleos fashioned an iguana, a bear, an aardvark ...

Fashion inspiration comes from everywhere: Coach Poppy Oil Slick Boxy Bag

Oil slicks are not the first thing that comes to mind when we think of handbags. And oil and handbags are not the most likely pairs. In fact, we’d advise against getting anything oily near your precious bags, old and new. But it appears that oil was the inspiration for the Coach Poppy Oil Slick Boxy Bag, and surprisingly, somehow it works. This crossbody bag is made of a shiny, slick patent leather ...
