Bottega Veneta Glass Bag

Bottega Veneta Glass Bag: Heart of Glass

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.

Moschino Fall 2014

Moschino Fall 2014: I’m Not Loving It

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.

Chanel Fall 2014 Collection

Chanel Fall 2014 Collection: Supermarket Sweep

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?”

Miu Miu Biker Bags

Miu Miu Biker Bags: Snob and Slob Face-Off

The concept of “less is more” has never been more obvious than in Miu Miu’s new biker-inspired collection. When it comes to quilting, padding, and topstitching, just a little is Snob…and a lot is a whole big mess of Slob.

Moschino Jacket Bags

Moschino Jacket Bags: Coat of Arms

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?

Proenza Schouler PS Backpack: PS I Love You

Ladies, we have a winner. This is the most sophisticated backpack I’ve seen yet. Just a few weeks ago, I was captivated by The Row’s pairing of canvas and ostrich skin, but their luxurious creation just got trumped. By a simple concoction of all-black leather, no less.

Adopted Cushion Wrap Case

Adopted Cushion Wrap Case: Get Adopted

Need a last-minute holiday gift idea? These Adopted cushion wrap iPhone 5/5S cases are perfect for all the Bag Snobs in your life! After all, it’s no secret we love quilting (see: Chanel), and with nine color options, they make for easy stocking stuffers. Not only will their cells be protected by bright upholstery, but also by metallized frames hiding beneath the quilting.

The Biker Bag

The Biker Bag: Road Warriors

My love of the biker jacket is no secret, but this season it’s gone full throttle with equally sharp biker bags. Quilting, hardcore hardware, zippers, studs – everything you expect from your favorite leather jacket compacted conveniently onto a tough girl carryall.
