Nina Ricci’s brilliant wraparound clutch in smooth black recently stole my heart and found a place in my hands, but, as they say, on to the next one! A touch of snakeskin (genuine or not) changes everything: this is exactly what I look for in a clutch.
From the low to the high, you absolutely must get a backpack if you don’t already have one. But there’s one major rule that comes with the territory: you must steer clear of looking like a schoolgirl (unless, of course, you’re trying to look like a schoolgirl, but that’s a story for a different day).
I’m so completely obsessed with Jill Haber bags. Ever since I saw them last season, I can’t stop buying them and I can’t stop wearing them. Everywhere I go, people stop, stare, inquire, and consequently obsess along with me.
Tamara Mellon’s first collection of namesake bags, shoes, and ready- to-wear is one of the strongest launches I’ve seen in a long time. When it comes to accessories, I did not expect anything less from the formidable former mistress of Jimmy Choo, and I’m willing to bet you didn’t either.
Calf hair is as luxe as any skin out there – and it’s the exotic you don’t have to feel guilty about (unless you’re an animal lover, that is). Tactile and touchable, soft but not too plush: I love the unique texture, especially as winter approaches and smooth leather and suede start to look commonplace.
