This is a prime example of everything a Frugal Snob bag should be: flirty, fun, noncommittal, and lighthearted (no pun intended). If something like this cheekily romantic bag happened to veer off into the quadruple-digit price range, you would surely hear me exclaim that such a novelty purchase isn’t worth a big investment. But that’s not the case!
Finally, the long-awaited Moschino jacket bags are here. Yep, now you can wear your leather motorcycle jacket and carry it, too!
Last night, we celebrated the launch of Snob Essentials at an intimate dinner for a group of our dearest friends. The event was generously hosted by HSN, where we will introduce our first collection on May 15th. As the date rapidly approaches, I can happily say we are so proud of this collection.
Here is a perfect example of a bag that illustrates the pillars of Bottega Veneta: impeccable craftsmanship, contemporary functionality, and timeless design topped with quality materials. And like every Bottega piece, it effectively grabs attention without resorting to the vulgarity of in-your-face logos or cheap tricks like tacky dangling fur balls.
We’re taking April showers pretty seriously around here, with not one, not two, not even three, but four prizes to give away this month! Each week, we’ll reveal a different bag from pre-owned accessories purveyor LUXE DH, offering four chances to win (though you can only take home one).
Jeremy Scott’s first collection for Moschino made a big splash at Milan Fashion Week thanks to designs inspired by American brands like Budweiser, Hershey’s, and yes, McDonald’s. I was intrigued by his jacket bags, but I can’t say I would wear any of these overcooked looks.
Nobody understands the importance of showmanship as well as Karl Lagerfeld. For Fall 2014, he took us to market, and the once-in-a-lifetime Chanel Shopping Center experience was one that left all attendees reeling. Strolling into the Costco-sized big-box market made for a surreal moment, one that made me wonder to myself (and I was not alone!), “Where am I?”
Of all the kitschy bags I have seen in my life, this collection is the most wearable (pun fully intended). If you can get away with carrying a Bible, milk carton, or Frosty the Snowman around as a bag (extra points for maintaining a straight face in the process), why not your favorite jacket?
