Maggie Copeland founded Brooklyn-based Palethorp with a focus on high-quality leathers and snakeskins (even the signature lining is snake-printed), or more often than not, a juxtaposition of the two. The results are perfect summer fun, and as if the prices weren’t reasonable enough to begin with, the label is offering Snobs an exclusive 40% discount!
I absolutely love this! Never one to complacently go with the ordinary designer grain, mix-master designer (and husband to Isabel Marant) Jérôme Dreyfuss always has a distinct, unmistakable way of shaking up textures and colors. But this three-way combo of denim, suede, and snake is flat-out genius.
When a glamour-obsessed fine jewelry line takes the plunge into clutches, you hope the results are going to be awe-inspiring. When New York-based Bochic (founded in 2004) takes the plunge into minaudierès, the result is a passionate collection worthy of old Hollywood.
There is nothing worse than pulling out your most treasured exotic-skin bag to find it dry, cracked, or peeling – or worse yet, all three. A very wise woman once told me that our designer bags are like fine cars: they need tuning regularly.
There are moments when the right color selection is all it takes to take a collection from cool enough to outright covetable…
