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.

Top 5 Summertime Crossbody Bags

Top 5 Summertime Crossbody Bags: Stop, Strap, and Roll

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.

Gucci Fringe Bags

Gucci Fringe Bags: Fringe Benefits

I like fringe; I really do. Actually, back in high school, I had a rather serious habit of dousing myself in fringe. A black fringe leather jacket, circa 1990? Check. White fringe leather boots, circa 1991? Double check!

Black and White

Black and White: The Dynamic Duo

Graphic black and white was last year’s biggest spring trend. Actually, it was probably the biggest trend of the year, one that has stuck around and likely won’t go anywhere too soon. Because really, when is the classic duo not in style?

Pierre Hardy Denim and Leather Shoulder Bag

Pierre Hardy Denim and Leather Shoulder Bag: The Jean Genie

To all you distressed cotton, acid-wash, and frayed-to-a-fringe bags out there, this is how you do denim. Make like Pierre Hardy and don’t take the idea literally. Go figurative, and stick to keen structure and polished leather piping, so the effect is anything but trashy.

Christian Louboutin Leopard Bags

Christian Louboutin Fall 2014 Collection: Season of Change

Bon voyage, studs, grommets, glitter, and heavy-metal hardware, and bonjour, clean lines, smooth metal, and pristine cutouts! From spikes to structure, I like the direction Christian Louboutin bags are headed for Fall 2014.

Elizabeth and James Cynnie Micro Shoulder Bag

Elizabeth and James Cynnie Micro Shoulder Bag: Quality Control

Why do bags cost so much? It’s a question I ask myself all the time, especially as I’m handing over my Amex with eyes shut tight in denial. 10 years ago, we were up in arms anytime a Prada bag topped $750, and yet now that’s considered a steal!

Smythson Quentin Jones Collaboration

Smythson x Quentin Jones Panama Collection: Artistic License

Some collaborations are nothing but a natural fit. Smythson’s latest Panama Collection marks the second capsule partnership between the leather company and artist Quentin Jones. Best of all, I love Smythson and their clean, simple shapes readily lend themselves to artistic embellishment.
