Jérôme Dreyfuss Carlos Expandable Leather-Trimmed Canvas Tote: Week In, Week Out

It looks like wife Isabel Marant’s sense of unfussy Paris cool is rubbing off on Jérôme Dreyfuss. Not that he didn’t have it to begin with – this bag is just a much more laid-back take than many of his colorful leopard and python shake-ups. But Jérôme is a designer who always keeps us on […]

V73 Canvas Printed Tote: It’s Like Déjà vu All Over Again

I’ll look for any excuse to quote “Clueless,” so to paraphrase Cher: V73, this tote is just a lawsuit waiting to happen! I’m all for cheeky pop art when it’s in the right context.

Top 5 Canvas Totes: Tote Up and Downsize

This weekend, the New York Times published an article deeming inexpensive – and often giveaway – canvas totes as the price-efficient and eco-conscious replacement for our luxury “It” bags. Quite an interesting article, but do you think it’s accurate? I love my Alexander McQueen canvas bag, courtesy of the Met’s exhibit; Lauren Bush’s FEED bag; […]
