Hermès Leathers: A Healthy Addiction

I have often joked that there is something about Hermès leathers, much like the world’s most addictive drugs, that get women (well, me at least) high. The scent of Hermès leather is like no other, and once you catch a whiff, you only want more.

The Row Drum Bag 12: The Beat Goes On

With higher volume and nearly instantaneous exposure, luxury fashion is accessible to everyone now – and that’s a positive development. Luxury fashion shouldn’t be a clique of “mean girls” (and boys) but an alluring force in which everyone who’s interested can potentially take part.

Top 5 Squared-Off Bags: The Box is Tops

Miu Miu Leopard-Print Calf Hair & Python Satchel: Combo Platter

Show me a bag that’s quintessentially Miu Miu and I’ll show you a bag that exudes quirk and glamour in equal measure, thanks to an unfailing way with wacky combinations that somehow work.
