I can’t remember the last time we featured an Armani Jeans bag on the site. That may very well be because we never have before. But there’s a first time for everything! Just goes to show you should never say never.
How is it already Monday again? I’m not going to opine on why the weekend goes by in the blink of an eye, while a workday can feel like an eternity. Instead, I’m going to distract myself with a bunch of bags that have me all starry-eyed.
From fringe to hobo bags to exaggerated hoop earrings, the boho look is a fashion favorite at the moment, and none are doing it as well as Ukranian brand Vita Kinicon. For one thing, the style – vyshyvanka, the nation’s traditional embroidered clothing – is a different take on boho than we’re used to seeing.
The most common question I get asked when people find out what I do is: “So, what’s the hot bag right now?” Of course I could tell them to just read my blog, but instead of being snarky, I opt to be helpful and rattle off a list of current bags that are the most relevant.
We know Victoria Beckham for one thing, first and foremost. (No, it’s not for her RBF, of which I’m thoroughly simpatico. Nor is it for her hot husband. And of course it’s not for her spicy past.) It’s for her understatedly chic sensibility, which comes through in her own line as much as it does her personal style.
I love Tom Ford’s version of the classic Hermès Kelly top-handle tote. A riff on the quintessential style, the Icon is still infused with his signature details, like an oversized zipper and well-placed, high-impact hardware.
