I went into the Marchesa showroom today to do some fashion-spying for Resort 2015, and I’m pleased to report that Georgina and Keren are – surprise! – not skimping on the glamour, not even close. These styles aren’t set to ship until November 30th (which seems a seriously long way off), but for a sneak peek to get you excited early, here are three new styles for the new season.
It’s the age-old question: does the bag make the woman or the woman make the bag? Personally, I think it’s a bit of both, but two disparate looks from two different women pose the query all over again.
Remember when it seemed like can’t-miss sales rolled around twice a year, max? Times have changed, and with designers releasing more throughout the year (hello, Resort and Pre-Fall!), that means more amazing steals to tide us over. This season, use the latest markdowns as an opportunity to invest in a longstanding staple. Without further fuss, here are the best sale picks, my top bag from each major shopping destination:
Happy Memorial Day, Snobs! Before you light up the barbecue with family and friends, take a moment to yourself for some retail therapy. MATCHESFASHION.COM is kicking off their end-of-season sale with a selection of items up to half off…
From appearing on magazine covers and in ad campaigns to sitting front row at the most exclusive Fashion Week shows and collaborating with the hottest designers, fashion bloggers are finally receiving their rightful places among the industry elite.
Tina and I have always said that you could wear a paper sack and still look chic with the right bag. What about carrying a paper bag, though? Well, the fact that it’s Lanvin certainly doesn’t hurt. Crinkled leather – especially of the metallic variety – has a deconstructed feel, yet this brushed chain strap ensures a sense of polished luxury.
Modern art and architecture come together seamlessly with the fluid designs of Lee Savage’s bags. Guided by aesthetic influences of the 1960s Minimalism movement, Savage (who unsurprisingly has past experience in interior design) debuts three clutch styles under her namesake label for Spring 2014. And they are nothing short of enticingly original.
When it comes to the summer, I need two kinds of bags: I either require a really giant tote for travel, the beach, pool, and so on, or I just want a small, easy crossbody bag for strolling, sightseeing, and perusing museums.
