An exotic bag is one of the most luxurious accessories you can collect, but that kind of luxury comes at a steep cost. With feathers, you get the exotic look without the accompanying price tag! They also add instant glitz and glam to even the most mundane of outfits…
Remember that line from “Under the Sea,” the most famous song in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, that goes something like, “Life is much better, down where it’s wetter”? Jokes aside, Sebastian the crab may know a thing or two about philosophy, but his mantra doesn’t apply to this piece by Shrimps.
Nancy’s foray in to new exotics is as exciting as the bags themselves. When the queen of crocodile takes on a new (and arguably equally decadent) material, you take notice…
Ferragamo is ready for Mother’s Day! Today, the house launched a bag collection and campaign to celebrate women, most notably Salvatore’s late daughter Fiamma. She not only designed the iconic Vara pump, but was also responsible for Ferragamo’s first bag collection, making her a pretty important lady over here on Snob Essentials.
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.
Metallics? Hello, liquid luster! Black patent leather? Think shinier than your lip gloss. Astrakhan lamb fur? So sumptuous! And crocodile? This is as divine as exotic skin gets. Jason Wu is keeping his girls classy for Fall ’14 with an insanely gorgeous bag collection set strictly in neutral tones.
I’m so in love! Navy pony hair layered over blocks of gray and white isn’t just unexpected, it’s striking and deeply chic. We see more than our fair share of pony on a regular basis, so I’ve got to hand it to Milli Millu for coming up with such a unique incarnation. Navy blue looks as glossy as satin and exotic as anything I’ve seen.
