They don’t have to make sense (Butterflies! Feathers! Fruit stickers! Rocket ships!). Actually, the more irreverent the embellishment, the better. Here are my favorite of-the-moment bags that just want to have a good time and aren’t afraid to say so.
Obsessed with Jane Birkin? I’m talking the person, not the bag. I am, and there’s no shame in it. You can have your Kardashians and Jenners, but I will forever revere the style of the one and only Jane Birkin. For over half a century, she’s dressed to please herself…
Could simple, streamlined totes be having a moment? Sure, elegant Célines and Victoria Beckhams have been Snob favorites for years, but you don’t necessarily expect Bad Gal RiRi to carry such a classic style. Maybe it’s in response to all of the clown couture we see paraded on the streets.
I am going to a resort in Bali next week, and I cannot wait! I am looking forward to a week of pure relaxation with plenty of lounging and yoga. Packing is easy: I am going ensure I’m comfortable in kaftans, shorts, and maxi skirts, but the bags are what will set the mood.
Bottega Veneta has done it again. This is such a special and truly unique bag that represents everything the house has to offer, from authoritative detailing to expert workmanship to obvious beauty.
Every summer, I go through the same obsession: wicker everything! If I could successfully wear a wicker dress without scratching or cutting myself, I would (note to designers). Until then, I’ll get my fix with one of my favorite woven bags.
After launching her eponymous line in 2014 – and making a fast splash in the ready-to-wear world – Rosie Assoulin tries her hand at bags, and we are grabbing on with both hands.
I spy something awesome! If you love Mark Cross’ lunch box bags (aka the Grace box), which I do, of course, then you will go crazy over the Benchley Binocular bag.
