Azzedine Alaïa Patent Crocodile Structured Tote Bag

Azzedine Alaïa Patent Crocodile Structured Tote Bag: Emerald City

Behold: the decadent of the decadent. What could be more luxurious than a tote deeply understated in shape, set in polished crocodile? One that’s deep emerald green crocodile. While everyone knows that Azzedine Alaïa knows his way around a mean laser-cut perforation, I believe sumptuous skin combined with a subtle silhouette is where he really shines.

Dior Mini Bar and Addict Bags: The New Statement Size

Never have I wished more for a daughter than I have this season. If only, so she and I could wear matching mama-and-baby bags. With all the delightful minis out there, from Tod’s to Saint Laurent, I’m so happy to report Dior’s iconic Bar and Addict bags have joined the miniature revolution.

Tina Craig on the Art of Packing

Tina Craig on the Art of Packing

I have been an active member of Overpackers Anonymous for as long as I can remember. It started at eight years old when I moved to the United States from Taiwan. The transition definitely affected my tendency to stock up—being uprooted from the only home you’ve ever known to a foreign country and not speaking a word of the local language is beyond traumatizing. Therefore, wherever I went, I packed everything with me.

The Five Essentials Featuring Micaela Erlanger

Remember when we all gasped at Lupita N’yongo’s stunning Golden Globes’ gown (and pretty much every other time she appeared anywhere)? The woman behind that look – as well as those of Michelle Dockery – is Micaela Erlanger. She’s the stylist to the stars – and the best-dressed ones at that!

Top 5 Squared-Off Clutches

Top 5 Squared-Off Clutches: Shape Up or Ship Out

Haven’t you heard? It’s hip to be square. It all started with two young women who have an innate knack for knowing what’s cool; I have to give props to The Row for spearheading this trend. When the Olsen duo launched their bags with their new now-iconic shape, I was instantly smitten.

Zagliani Deva and Gatsby Totes

Zagliani Deva and Gatsby Totes: Two’s Company

It’s been a little while since we’ve covered a Zagliani bag, and I can confidently say their new Fall 2014 collection is most definitely making me sit up and take notice once again. Recently appointed Creative Director Giorgia Scarpa (formerly of Prada and Dior), now on her third collection for the Italian luxury house, is hitting her stride. As they say, third time’s a charm.
