You don’t get much of the trendy variety from Monsieur Alaïa. Known for his meticulous craftsmanship and acute attention to detail, a single new dress shape can take weeks of work before he’s satisfied. But when that rare occasion happens, jump on it!
I have been in love with Jill Haber’s evening bags since day one (literally!). She’s come a long way since then, and I can’t say I’m surprised. A single look at one of her first designs, and it’s clear she was a star on the rise. Well, that love continues to grow to this day, as this star only shines brighter.
In case you hadn’t noticed, what with the sudden inundation of embellished and patchwork denim, soft and accessible suede, and fringe everything, the ’70s are back in full swing…
Who’s the Snobbiest Bag Snob of all?! Victoria Beckham, that’s who. Her personal style and hair (from cropped to long, frosty blonde to rich brunette) have changed greatly throughout the years, but one thing has remained constant: her bags. More specifically, her great taste in bags.
While Madonna’s recent performance at the Grammys was controversial as ever (well, at least her cheeky red carpet look was!), she’s got me inspired to channel a modern matador myself. And so does Nancy Gonzalez’s dramatic crocodile clutch.
Mary Katrantzou strikes us once again with the immediate visual impact of her work. In the case of her latest clutches, it’s all about symbols. Don’t expect such a visionary designer to toy with initials and logos in a run-of-the-mill way…
Peekaboo, I see you! The Vogue “It” Bag competition hasn’t concluded yet, but I’m calling it now. Fendi’s Peekaboo satchel in mini or micro size is it! While the micro is no doubt the trendier of the two, the mini will be more functional in the long run.
