We are kicking off fashion week with one of our favorite designers, Derek Lam! We begged him to give away the must have tote of Spring 2010, the Blanche tote in taupe “powder calf” (worth $1,690), and he indulged us! This fabulous tote is not in stores yet but a lucky Bag Snob reader will win it before the rest of the world even sees it on the shelves! I’m obsessed with the yummy calf skin– it has been treated to give a distressed texture and is butter soft yet still incredibly sturdy. I do not need to tell you that this color will go with just about everything in your wardrobe, do I? Top handles and removable body strap makes the elongated tote easy to carry. This is the urban girl’s Range Rover! The Blanche tote will be available at Barneys and Derek Lam boutique in late March– you might want to call Wayne to put your name on the list for one in case you don’t win 212-966-1616 (is it scary that I know the number by heart!?)
We will be running this giveaway through the end of Paris Fashion Week, March 15th. All you have to do to win is SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER. Even if you have signed up before, you must sign up again to qualify. And please, leave Derek a comment on why you love his designs– he’ll be reading them personally!
