Elisabeth Weinstock Anaconda and Whipsnake Backpacks: Snake It to the Streets

From home goods (including jewelry boxes and even tampon cases!) to hardware-light bags, few can work an exotic skin like Elisabeth Weinstock. Since 2002, she’s cemented and maintained her unreal hand with decadent anaconda.

Top 5 Metallic Must-Haves: That’s a Real Shiner

It’s time to up the high-shine factor. Not just because it’s the holiday season; even without the upcoming onslaught of soirees, something about mirrored accessories feels so good right now. In the age of the selfie-obsessed, we could all use some more personal reflection! Even if it’s in the form of seriously glamorous accessories.

Rihanna on Repeat with Reece Hudson: Only Bag in the World

Unlike most celebrities, RiRi isn’t one to follow style rules. She wears bras as tops, doesn’t wear bras with tops, and if she loves a bag, she will carry it over and over again.

Three words: simple, sleek, and thoroughly functional. Okay, so that’s more like four words, but you get the idea. Perrin Paris has delivered one of the best backpack designs I’ve ever seen.

Between Target and H&M collaborations, designer fashion is more accessible than ever, and those collections are just getting better all the time. If you thought Isabel Marant’s H&M tour de force was highly anticipated, then there’s not even a word to describe the mania that’s about to ensue for Alex Wang.

Top 5 Military-Green Bags: In the Army Now

I love green in all its many incarnations, from forest to moss to lime to mint, but it’s military that’s perhaps the most versatile of them all. On the tomboyish side of the spectrum, it eliminates the prissiness from any ensemble, but don’t think the army-inspired shade can’t feel fresh and alluring.

Jil Sander 3-Angle Leather Backpack

Jil Sander 3-Angle Leather Backpack: It’s All in the Angles

This backpack looks so entirely odd at first, it almost resembles more of a small teepee than a leather bag. But Jil Sander’s lean, offbeat, uncommon shape actually makes perfect sense. Think about it: what do you put at the very top of a backpack? Nothing.
