The Row Ostrich Backpack: Baby Got Back

The backpack is back! When it comes to the most innately casual of bag styles, no one can dress it up like The Row. With their latest incarnation, they have read my mind. Color-who? I am all about texture-blocking, especially when a stark, striking contrast is involved.

Ever the showman, Karl Lagerfeld didn’t disappoint with the big reveal of Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

MCM Store Opening

MCM Boutique: An Afternoon at the Plaza

I partnered up with MCM for Fashion Week, so after having tea at the Plaza I stopped into the hotel’s MCM boutique for an impromptu photo shoot. The iconic German brand was a favorite of my aunties in the ‘80s and today’s MCM is better than ever. The familiar logo has been toughened up with studs and embellishments.

Kenzo Leather Patterned Backpack: Let’s Back Up…

When I was in college in the ‘90s, I carried two different bags to class: a classic Chanel flap topped with gold chains and a nylon Prada backpack topped with gold chains. Needless to say, I didn’t actually carry any books in either in my bags. I held or made a boy carry them. I loved my Prada backpack so much I carried it everywhere, even once on the Great Wall of China.
