This season’s Firenze4Ever theme was Obsessions. As women, we’re overly obsessed with so many things that our lives sometimes end up paralyzed by the ridiculous standards society places upon us; yet even more paralyzing are the unobtainable standards we place upon ourselves…
Here’s a trend I can fully commit to! I love print and while I usually don’t like wallpaper florals, what appeals is all about timing. And right now this look just feels right. Speaking of timing, spring is the annual age of newness, so consider opting for something that’s out of your comfort zone…
From the half-moon cutout handle to the lean, triangular lines, J.W. Anderson’s Moon tote and its audaciously architectural shape is striking and brilliant.
Though 2015 may have just begun, Vogue is already preparing to crown the year’s “it” bag – and they’re letting you make the call!
Thanks to Louis Vuitton’s Neverfull, the original coated-canvas shopper tote released in 2007, we are spoiled. What could be easier for a day out, particularly one when you’re perusing shops and stocking up on new purchases, than a big bag you can toss everything into?
This year marks a full century of fine leather craftsmanship from Fontana. The 100-year-old Italian leather house may not rank at the heights of Fendi or Ferragamo (yet), but this is a name all bag snobs need to know. The proof is in their street cred; in the last few years, Cameron Diaz, Sofia Vergara, and Jessica Chastain have been spotted carrying variations of their Afef tote.
What a way to start the year! We know they can’t all be winners, so it’s only normal that some bags beg the question: Where do we draw the line of bad taste?
Whether in charming mini size or a roomier, classic-tote scale, it’s effortless from work to weekend and whatever happens in between. I’m a sucker for a gorgeous interior, and this one reveals lush suede lining with multiple pockets. Obviously, the outside is just as good. Not only is the look of the design divine, but bless you, Reed, for the slim exterior back pocket that fits the iPhone 6.
Lately, I’ve kind of made a return to more neutral bags, but sometimes you want some boldness to complement the neutrality. This Jil Sander tote allows for both in equal measures, which I really appreciate.
