Anyway, this Lhasa Apso Hobo from Tano Handbags is available in a variety of colors. Created from glazed, distressed leather, it’s rich in color and in shape, and embellished with numerous oversized eyelets. I can’t decide whether the adornments complement the ...

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.

Saddle shape, structured leather, unexpected color pairings, and a hefty price tag ($1095) – it’s all in the Able 02 Medium Breast Bag by Bracher Emden.

This week marks a new feature for What’s Haute readers, “Haute or Not”. I decided to start this week’s Haute or Not with a handbag by celebrity glamour gal, Beyonce.

This “Wild Child” shoulder bag is one of three styles on the site. ...

Tit Totes

Ok, someone has too much free time on their hands. While I’m always up for finding interesting and creative uses for regular items, this just takes the cake. Constructed out of a bra, these Tit Totes are the brainchild of Susan Glen.
