Coming soon: BLACKSEA Spring 2014 Bag Collection

Over the years I’ve been noticing a return to simplicity in handbag design, with more of a focus on the use of color, and colorblocking, to make bags pop. A new handbag line that’s set to launch in Spring 2014 called BLACKSEA does just that. Described as “an experiment in geometry, texture and color,” BLACKSEA’s debut capsule collection features timeless staple pieces ...

See by Chloé April snake-stamped leather trapeze tote

Since the crazy popularity of Celine’s Leather Luggage Tote, everyone’s been doing similar boxy-shaped, trapeze-style totes. See by Chloé is the latest to try the trend and although nothing can match the Celine (at least in MY eyes), this bag comes pretty close. The See by Chloé April snake-stamped leather trapeze tote is pretty much everything I love in a Spring bag. It comes in a pretty-meets-neutral ...

Haute bag of the week: Chloé Madeleine Tote in Green Tea

Pantone may have named Tangerine Tango the 2012 color of the year but I’ve been seeing an explosion of mint green that makes me think differently. While last year was all about colorblock, this year is all about neon brights and pastels. And the ruling pastel right now is mint green. I love the simplicity of the color, and how it seems to pair so well with neutrals and brights. The key to wearing ...

The new ‘It’ bag you should have: Givenchy Tricolor Medium Antigona Duffel

It’s safe to say the Antigona is Givenchy‘s new ‘It’ bag of the moment, as it’s been seen on pretty much every celebrity under the sun, including Rachel Zoe, Beyonce, Rihanna, Khloe Kardashian, Kyle Richards, Zoe Saldana, Nicole Richie and Ciara. And the list goes on and on. And it’s the latest ‘it’ bag for good reason – it’s sturdy and classic ...

MARNI Foulard Spring/Summer 2012 collection

If we had to choose one designer’s clothes to live in for the rest of our life, it’d be Marni. The retro colors and prints make us swoon time and time again and we’d be happy to be swathed in Marni garments and accessories forever! Added to our ‘want’ list is practically every item in the Marni Foulard Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Marni first debuted Foulard last year. ...

This Marni Leather Tote is understated and oh-so-chic

Marni accessories are typically on the quirkier side, and that’s just why we love the brand. The usual Marni look consists of playful printed clothes, interestingly sculpted bangles, funky bib necklaces and chunky wood platform heels. Oh, and we can’t forget about the infamous Marni Balloon bag. But Marni apparently can do understated very well too. Case in point: this Marni Leather Tote. The ...

On our Spring bag wish list: Emily Cho Oversized Folded Clutch (in Matise Floral Lilac & Blue)

We couldn’t get enough of Emily Cho’s smokin’ hot folded clutches when we first came across them last year, and after viewing the spring collection, we still can’t get enough of them! Especially these new Emily Cho Oversized Folded Clutches in Matise Floral. How gorgeous are these bags, how perfect for spring? Made of printed floral calf leather, the clutch features Emily Cho’s ...

Splurge du Jour: Proenza Schouler Python PS11 Tote

After first seeing it in ads all over the ‘net, I quickly became obsessed with finding this green, tan and black Proenza Schouler PS11 Tote. For the longest time it was sold out but recently restocked at Barneys. After buying it, I have to say this is one of the best bags I’ve ever owned. The leather is amazingly supple yet sturdy and the shape is a unique boxy silhouette that’s different ...

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012 handbags on the runway at London Fashion Week

For Spring 2012, Burberry bags went the way of tribal-meets-DIY. Not to say that the bags looked any less luxurious than usual, but on the contrary. Using materials like raffia and techniques like crocheting, beading, weaving, and braiding, Burberry’s Spring 2012 handbags did look handcrafted, but in the most high-end way and using only the finest materials. Top handle totes were done in an ...

Eco-friendly Spring bag: Collina Strada ‘A Cared for World’ Bag

Usually, by the time May rolls around, we’re in the thick of warm weather which for fashionistas translates into spring fashion. Unfortunately it still feels like Fall on the East coast, and we’re not feeling very Spring-inspired as of late. But then we spied this ‘A Cared for World Bag‘ and it put us back in a Spring-y mood! Made by eco-friendly designer Collina Strada, the ...

Splurge du Jour: Valentino Plisse Leather Clutch

After years of toting big bags, I am really beginning to appreciate large clutches. As someone who carries more than just the bare essentials in their bag, a small clutch just won’t do. But I’m finding that a medium to large-sized clutch works and frees my shoulders and back from unnecessary pain. And clutches look awfully cute too. On my clutch hunt I found a great Spring contender – ...

Vince Camuto designs cute bags too: check out the Vince Camuto Fiona Satchel

Many designers try to design both handbags and shoes and usually excel at one and fail at the other, but in 2009, footwear master Vince Camuto dipped his design feet into the world of handbags and the results are pretty cute. We love this Vince Camuto Fiona Satchel. It’s a standard barrel satchel shape made of reddish perforated lattice leather, which we love in Spring bags. The leather looks ...

Haute bag of the week: Fendi rainbow Zucca laminated canvas ‘Roll’ tote

There’s nothing nicer than some cheery accessories to get you in the mood for Spring! The Fendi rainbow zucca laminated canvas ‘Roll’ tote does multiple duty. Use it as a day bag to store all your work/after work essentials, a weekend shopper, a travel tote to hold magazines and snacks, or even a beach tote. However you carry this Fendi bag, you’ll appreciate the multicolored ...

You can wear stripes in a flattering way – featuring the Prada Striped Tote

Fashion experts (like myself), will ALWAYS advise that you stay away from wearing horizontal stripes. It’s not flattering, at any size. But we never said anything about ‘carrying‘ them! The Prada Spring 2011 collection is full of horizontally-striped pieces, and while you may want to steer clear of the skirts, you can tote one of their colorful, nautical-inspired striped bags. The ...

Haute bag of the week: Alexander Wang Marion Mini Flap Bag

It’s good to see Alexander Wang move away from his black phase, yet retain his downtown edge. Only a designer as cool as him could make a mint green bag look slightly edgy. Even though he told Style.com that his direction for Spring 2011 was “pure” and “more optimistic”, he maintained his cool with this Alexander Wang Marion Mini Flap Bag, right off the Spring 2011 runway. ...
