When Valentino announced they were holding a fashion show in Shanghai, celebrating the opening of the largest boutique in Asia (8,500 square feet and second only to the flagship in Milano), I expected to view the Spring 2014 collection I saw in Paris.
Have you ever fallen in love with a bag, only to see it slip through your fingers? First you decided that it was too expensive and that you needed time to decide if you really must have it, then the next thing you know, it’s sold out! I pride myself on always finding the bags I love, no matter how high or low I have to search for them, and one of my newest solutions is eBay.
Every year when fall rolls around, pony-hair is a seasonal must, no questions asked. Nothing will get you in the mode to enjoy the rest of October and ease right into winter like natural texture that’s lush yet subdued.
As the line between art and fashion continues to blur (just look at Chanel’s Spring ’14 collection), so does the line that divides jewelry and bags. If Tom Ford has anything to do with it (and what does Tom Ford not have a hand in, really?), it will evaporate entirely.
