Louis Vuitton x Bono Charity Bag

Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with Louis Vuitton’s Keepall bag. I have almost every single incarnation of the luggage piece dating back the last decade and, needless to say, they take up quite a bit of space in my closet! But I’m only too happy to add the latest version when […]

Smythson Launches Men’s Collection

One of the best things to happen this year in the world of leathergoods is without a doubt the arrival of a first Smythson men’s collection. I recently previewed the entire collection and it not only left me very impressed, but rethinking my need for that next Louis Vuitton or Hermès leathergoods item–be it a […]

m0851 Folded corners Weekender

I have been a huge huge fan of M0851 for years, my entire family has an array of these in their closets, mainly because they are easy easy easy. OK, they are not the most fashion-y (or at all fashion-y) but for travel and running around, these are fantastic. They are now having a 50% […]

Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring 2011 Runway Bags

With a head trip theme underlying the spring men’s collection, Louis Vuitton’s men’s studio director Paul Helbers, under the auspices of Marc Jacobs, channeled what he described as “a rhapsody of three virtual scenarios for a digital bohemian, a man who travels the world from behind his computer screen.” That translated […]

Emilio Pucci Marquise Bag

Peter Dundas is a seriously underappreciated talent. This former designer at Roberto Cavalli and Ungaro–now creative director of Emilio Pucci–has never let his passion for cutting-edge design be marred by trends or corporate restraint. The same can be said for the Marquise bag, his first bag (not to mention the only one launched with a […]

Vuitton Man Bag

Since I’m almost 30 (don’t remind me), I’ve long learned to focus on craftsmanship over glitz when it comes to any bag I recommend–let alone one that I would carry myself. Admittedly, I am a Bag Snob when it comes to this (I’ve got standards to uphold, right?) so the moment this navy Taiga calf […]
