Jérôme Dreyfuss Edouard Denim, Suede, and Snake Shoulder Bag

Jérôme Dreyfuss Edouard Denim, Suede, and Snake Shoulder Bag: Ménage à Trois

I absolutely love this! Never one to complacently go with the ordinary designer grain, mix-master designer (and husband to Isabel Marant) Jérôme Dreyfuss always has a distinct, unmistakable way of shaking up textures and colors. But this three-way combo of denim, suede, and snake is flat-out genius.

Spring Cleaning: Rotating Your Handbags for the Season

I’ve started writing a monthly column for HarpersBazaar.com that I hope you’ll all be tuning in for! My first subject was spring cleaning, or rather, spring organizing (it’s a lot easier to organize than to give away beloved bags!). At the start of a new season, I store the pieces I won’t be wearing in boxes, and bring out all the others I’ve been waiting to carry.

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!

Milli Millu Helsinki Bag

Milli Millu Helsinki Bag: Pony Up

I’m so in love! Navy pony hair layered over blocks of gray and white isn’t just unexpected, it’s striking and deeply chic. We see more than our fair share of pony on a regular basis, so I’ve got to hand it to Milli Millu for coming up with such a unique incarnation. Navy blue looks as glossy as satin and exotic as anything I’ve seen.

Army-Inspired Bags

Top 5 Army-Inspired Bags: Armed Forces

Who says you need to be decked out in camouflage to inject a little bit of boot camp chic into your look? Sometimes subtle is the way to go, and sticking with a neutral palette of lush olive, earthy brown, rich hunter green, and all-grown-up mahogany will leave you anything but fatigued.
