Top 5 New Blues

Top 5 New Blues: Blue is the New Black

Don’t think of blue as a hue so different from black. Just think of the shade as jet-black’s more mellow, yet equally mysterious and often just as neutral sister. I am!

Emanuel Ungaro Triangle Clutch

Emanuel Ungaro Triangle Clutch: Tri Something New

Emanuel Ungaro, is that you? I barely recognized you! Granted, it has been a while since I’ve seen a bag of theirs worthy of paying some real attention. But the cool, exciting shape of their three-dimensional Triangle clutch is enough to get me to notice the brand once again.

The now signature double zipper pull for Chloé that we’ve seen accenting everything from totes to new favorite, the Drew, is at it again on this crisp, classic shoulder bag.

Roberto Cavalli Bag

Roberto Cavalli Orb Gold Metallic Leather Clutch: Party Animal

Who knew I was a sucker for amphibians? We know (and sometimes love) Roberto Cavall for his enduring passion for wildcats and jungle creatures, but apparently his appreciation of animals reaches all over the kingdom. These frog toggles are just too cute to take a pass on.

Alice + Olivia Bag

Alice + Olivia Present Box Leather Shoulder Bag: Good Things Come in Wrapped Packages

What’s better than a present that is actually a present? Forget the bows, ribbons, and wrapping paper…and Scotch tape, scissors, and fumbling hands. When your bag is designed to look like a glamorous little gift box, every day will feel like Christmas or your birthday.

Christopher Kane Bag

Christopher Kane Safety Buckle Leather Tote: Playing It Safe

I will always love the use of cool hardware, especially on a super-functional tote.

Trompe L’oeil Bags

Trompe-L’oeil Bags: Tricks Up Your Sleeve

While the adage, “things aren’t always as they seem,” may be old, it applies to some of the freshest designs out there. In English, trompe l’oeil translates to “deceives the eye,” and these designers make that deception one that you’ll welcome with a smile.

Kotur Clutch

Kotur Spring 2015 Collection: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

What’s at the end of the rainbow? It’s not a pot of gold. It’s something better: Kotur! Inspired by the art and design attitudes of the 1950s, Fiona Kotur looked to the Robert Indiana’s sign paintings and Memphis’ Lansky Brothers, the famed tailors who fashioned Elvis’ signature look.

IIIBeCa by Joy Gryson Church Street Cross Body Bag: Nice and Easy

It may seem like summer just ended, but the truth is that the holidays are already creeping up on us. Soon you’ll be even busier than you are now, and for times like those, you want to streamline everything, including your bag!
