Hedi Slimane has proven he can make just about anything cool, including sheer tights under shorts, as seen on Saint Laurent’s Spring ’15 runway, and logo-punctuated clutches. But I am not into guns as accessories, and even the guy who had the brashness to drop the “Yves” off the company name can’t convert me.
Who knew I was a sucker for amphibians? We know (and sometimes love) Roberto Cavall for his enduring passion for wildcats and jungle creatures, but apparently his appreciation of animals reaches all over the kingdom. These frog toggles are just too cute to take a pass on.
Other than the fact you’re inevitably going to end up with traces of fuchsia glitter all over yourself, this is the best holiday bag ever. If there was ever a fun party bag made exclusively for the eternal little girl who happens to be all grown up on the outside, Saint Laurent’s Lulu bag is it. Even the name connotes youth and frivolity.
It may not be the ostentatious bait of street style dreams, but there’s nothing more luxe than minimalism. Fashion’s favorite color juxtaposed against decadent, gleaming gold? It’s a simple, yet affecting pairing, and in spite of appearances, not one you need to save up to invest in!
The military bag may be a trend recently set by Marc Jacobs with his Spring ’15 show and his army of women in uniform, but you can get in on the upcoming trend right now. As it turns out, Tod’s is one step ahead with their Military tote, at once chunky sleek, functional and full of whimsy.
Backstage at the runway show for his Spring ’15 collection, Jason told me he wants to make beauty cool again. Crazy trends and the desire to be edgy have been surpassing grace and beauty in the fashion race as of late, and he’s out to change that.
Glistening, abstract stripes of gunmetal, steel blue, and cool gold beadwork on pristine black silk: this gorgeous piece is just what the season calls for. So gorgeous, in fact, that I’m inclined to say it doesn’t even matter which season we’re talking about.
I am completely bipolar when it comes to Fendi bags. Or is Karl the bipolar one? Now that I think about it, the latter is the more likely option. Someone please tell me: How did these two bags come out of the same house?
A good friend of mine, Jane Lerman, quietly started her own line of handbags as a creative side project. She runs her own PR agency and showroom, and her handbags quickly caught the eye of not only friends like me, but editors and bloggers who were coming to her office to pull looks for various shoots.
