We may have questioned the originality of Stella McCartney’s Beckett bag, but the Beckett hobo? It’s in a league all its own! This comes down to the Brit designer’s incomparable use of faux leather. A great hobo is hard to find. A vegan one? Even harder.
Emphasis on the word “off.” Simply put, Tod’s has gone off the rails for me. What was once a classic brand that offered me timeless investments (take this python beauty back from 2011, for example) appears to have run off and joined the circus. Or the horse show.
Paula Cademartori is a name you need to know. Since debuting her brand in September 2010, the up-and-coming designer has won accolades among the fashion elite, dazzling us with distinctive, personality-driven styles. Now her Faye handbag gives even more reason you should keep an eye out for her.
I recently invested in a shearling camel coat from Burberry and as a result, I am now consumed with all things camel. Think buttery and luscious camel: is anything more luxurious-looking? It’s also very high-maintenance, but so are all great things in life!
Studs on bags are nothing new, and neither are prints and patterns. While the combination of the two may not be brand-new, per se, there’s something about a bag that sports a deliberate arrangement of studs that feels deeply cool and refreshing right now.
While black and white may be on trend, it’s their middle ground that I’m finding even more versatile. Just look to Saint Laurent’s suede Lulu bag (on Farfetch for $2,141.48) for proof. You could wear this to work with fall burgundies and cobalts, then break it out come springtime with a green party dress.
