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. The website desribes it as “an iconic silhouette that exudes a sense of restrained luxury.” Hmm…ok. I will restrain myself and refrain from commenting on what it reminded me of at first glance, because maybe I’ve got a different ...

Get your hands on this limited-edition ‘Gucci’ clutch – made completely of Legos!

Lego bags apparently are the new ‘thing’ in fashion. During Paris Fashion Week last Fall, Chanel debuted its ‘Lego’ clutch on the runway. Then a few months ago we spotted this ‘Birkin bag’ completely made of Legos. Now Etsy seller agabag is selling a limited-run of ‘a tribute to Gucci clutch bags‘ made almost entirely of red, dark green and khaki colored ...

Good grief, it’s a Charlie Brown-inspired Chloe bag

As we’ve seen over the years, any and EVERYTHING inspires handbag design. Don’t believe us? Check out this, this, this, this, this and this. Those were pretty bad. This Chloe Ivory Charlie Zigzag Tote isn’t as crazy, but was obviously inspired by Charlie Brown. And I love a good Charlie Brown Halloween and Christmas special as much as the next person but The Peanuts in my luxury ...

Damien Hirst and the Olsen twins are selling $55,000 prescription pill-covered The Row backpacks. Will you be buying?

The price of the Olsen twins‘ new handbag may be a ‘tough pill to swallow’. Their new bags, designed in collaboration with artist Damien Hirst, are made of black patent leather Nile crocodile skin and, get this – they’re covered in ‘prescription pills’. Not the real thing, of course, but still – it’s pretty crazy and controversial given Mary Kate Olsen‘s ...

Way to waste $100K – Francesca Eastwood destroys her croc Birkin bag

Today is a sad day for luxury bag lovers (cue violin music). While so many women are waiting patiently on the LONG waiting list to get a Birkin, others are busy destroying theirs. Clint Eastwood‘s daughter Francesca, known for her role on the new reality show, Mrs. Eastwood & Company (which stars his wife Dina and his two daughters), set fire to her $100,000 crocodile Birkin bag on the latest ...

Haute or not: Louis Vuitton Pulsion Lockit in sheepskin

There are some luxury brands whose bags we have a love/hate relationship with, but Louis Vuitton never has been one of them. Their designs are typically classic and reliable. When they release new handbags, you can pretty much count on them to create some fabulous leather or exotic iteration of their iconic monogram. So when we saw this Louis Vuitton Pulsion Lockit in sheepskin with a matte calfskin ...

Bai Ling travels through LAX with the Sonia Rykiel Studded Domino bag

There are so many things we could say about Bai Ling‘s outfit that she wore traveling through Los Angeles International Airport, but that would take more time than we have. Or care to waste. So we’ll just focus on the one, non-kooky piece in her look – her Sonia Rykiel Studded Domino bag. It’s a great bag that would look better on the arms of a less crazy, more important celebrity. ...

Haute or Not: Bottega Veneta Cushion Tote

I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of Bottega Veneta bags but I’ve never seen a bag of theirs that I didn’t like. Until now. Bottega decided to take an ottoman, add handles to it and call it a handbag. This fugly pillow with rolled leather straps is called the Bottega Veneta Cushion Tote certainly lives up to its name. It is exactly what it says it is – a cushion with ...
