Roger Vivier Spring 2015 Collection

Roger Vivier Spring 2015 Collection: Turning Up the Heat

Next spring, Roger Vivier is taking us on a “stroll through the heat of summer,” and I couldn’t be happier to oblige early. Inspiration from the hot sun and cool evening breeze translates to pop art-heavy pieces that snap, crackle, and yes, pop.

This is my favorite shape in Salvatore Ferragamo’s curvy Fiamma collection. It’s out of a reissue of the original Fiamma bags from 1992, named in honor of one of Salvatore’s six children.

Top Nude Bags

Top Nude Bags: Neutral Nation

My nude obsession continues. Actually, it’s only gaining steam. After a streak of blindingly bright neon trends, all things washed out have never looked chicer.

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. The “safety buckle” motif is now almost as famous as the designer himself, Christopher Kane, or at least intrinsically linked to his designs, from his wild, belted dresses from Spring ’07 to this season’s smaller, sleeker bags.

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.

Top 5 Military-Green Bags

Top 5 Military-Green Bags: In the Army Now

I love green in all its many incarnations, from forest to moss to lime to mint, but it’s military that’s perhaps the most versatile of them all. On the tomboyish side of the spectrum, it eliminates the prissiness from any ensemble, but don’t think the army-inspired shade can’t feel fresh and alluring.

Tod’s Military Metallic Tote

Tod’s Military Metallic Tote: Metallica Fan

The military bag may be a trend recently set by Marc Jacobs with his Spring ’15 show and his army of women in uniform, but you can get in on the upcoming trend right now. As it turns out, Tod’s is one step ahead with their Military tote, at once chunky sleek, functional and full of whimsy.
