Giuseppe Zanotti Zipped Nappa Leather Shoulder Bag

Giuseppe Zanotti Zipped Nappa Leather Shoulder Bag: Beat It

I love Giuseppe Zanotti. I really do. His shoes are exquisite and fabulous, and I can only wish I had the stamina to wear his stilettos daily. So as much as it pains me to do so, I’ve got to call it like I see it…

Emanuel Ungaro Triangle Clutch

Emanuel Ungaro Triangle Clutch: Tri Something New

Emanuel Ungaro, is that you? I barely recognized you! Granted, it has been a while since I’ve seen a bag of theirs worthy of paying some real attention. But the cool, exciting shape of their three-dimensional Triangle clutch is enough to get me to notice the brand once again.

The now signature double zipper pull for Chloé that we’ve seen accenting everything from totes to new favorite, the Drew, is at it again on this crisp, classic shoulder bag.

Roberto Cavalli Bag

Roberto Cavalli Orb Gold Metallic Leather Clutch: Party Animal

Who knew I was a sucker for amphibians? We know (and sometimes love) Roberto Cavall for his enduring passion for wildcats and jungle creatures, but apparently his appreciation of animals reaches all over the kingdom. These frog toggles are just too cute to take a pass on.

Christopher Kane Bag

Christopher Kane Safety Buckle Leather Tote: Playing It Safe

I will always love the use of cool hardware, especially on a super-functional tote. The “safety buckle” motif is now almost as famous as the designer himself, Christopher Kane, or at least intrinsically linked to his designs, from his wild, belted dresses from Spring ’07 to this season’s smaller, sleeker bags.

The New Hoop

The New Hoop: Cure for the Common Earring

The hoop earring is as generic as it comes – almost as common as the stud. It first appeared roughly four centuries ago in Asia, so I’d say it’s about time we give the style a new look! From prim and proper mini hoops to the shoulder-scraping, there’s been no dearth of sizes, but what about shapes and materials?

IIIBeCa by Joy Gryson Church Street Cross Body Bag: Nice and Easy

It may seem like summer just ended, but the truth is that the holidays are already creeping up on us. Soon you’ll be even busier than you are now, and for times like those, you want to streamline everything, including your bag!

Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter-on-Leather Bag

Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter-on-Leather Bag: Party of Fun

Other than the fact you’re inevitably going to end up with traces of fuchsia glitter all over yourself, this is the best holiday bag ever. If there was ever a fun party bag made exclusively for the eternal little girl who happens to be all grown up on the outside, Saint Laurent’s Lulu bag is it. Even the name connotes youth and frivolity.

Valentino Bird Embroidered Suede Shoulder Bag: What’s Good for the Goose is Good to Gander

We’ve become so accustomed to the spectacular embroidery and detailing showcased on Maria Grazia’s and Pierpaolo’s epic dresses for Valentino, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see similar work on one of their bags. But that doesn’t make taking a gander at this bag any less special…
