The closing of fashion month doesn’t just mean the chance to take a moment to look away from the runway (whether it be front-row or online). It’s time to reflect on the best bags of the Spring ’15 season, courtesy of the grand finale in the City of Lights.
From rock studs to rivets: Valentino is currently easing up on their trademark (to the point of ubiquity) hardware and going for a lighter look with a smattering of delicate rivets. The level of metal might be turned down a few notches, but this bag manages to still pack a punch when it comes to covetability.
From demure blush tones to innocent garden hues to quintessential Barbie pinks to searing fuchsias and bold magentas to the perfect shade of lipstick pink: October is the best month to show off your best pinks, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
Now that October is fast approaching, I am feeling slightly plaid-crazy. And by slightly, I mean all about it. Nothing looks more like the picture of fall to me than some crisp tartan freshness. But why stop at pleated skirts and cozy coats?
Two-for-one special, anyone? This is quite possibly the most functional trend, ever. Jeremy Scott (seriously, who else?!) at Moschino is determined to bring the term “hands-free” to brave new levels.
I don’t care how many you own; you can still never have enough basic shoulder bags that get you through the day without fuss. That being said, there’s nothing standard about the latest Zagliani bag.
This season, Mary Katrantzou has spring-boarded from her collaboration with Longchamp, which reaped a collection of brightly printed bags (think patterns featuring hot air balloons and Southeast Asian temples), to a full-fledged line of her own. The results are as astoundingly good as her trademark elaborate, highly technical prints.
Sometimes a bag is so true to a designer’s trademark details and established aesthetic, you saw it coming a mile away…
I had such a fun time today shopping for jewels and lunching with longtime girlfriends, along with a few new ones. I need these kinds of days; we all need these days, when we keep things light, let out steam about our husbands and kids, and get just plain silly.
