Bold lattice designs usually make me think of 1970s Palm Springs décor, a little tacky and over-the-top. But my new obsession with interior designer Tom Scheerer has me changing my tune.
So how do we feel about denim bags? I love a great pair of jeans or a tailored denim shirt, but my appreciation for America’s most quintessential item of clothing has never successfully translated to bags.

Did you ever think you would have the chance to imagine your own Nancy Gonzalez bag, and see that concept come to fruition? While I’m sadly not talking about the opportunity to work with crocodile’s legendary mistress one-on-one, the dream of personalizing your own Gonzalez original just became a reality.
I’m so in love! I’m no ballerina, not even close, but this update of Nina Ricci’s delicately impactful Ballet bag is making me want to dance. Or at least do a little twirl with it on my arm. While the original has a wide, east-west silhouette, this newly elongated iteration really speaks to me.
