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!

Rochas Cardinale Leather Tote: Ahead of the Curve

Working pastels into your repertoire is an obvious necessity come spring, but that doesn’t mean you necessarily feel like you need a round bag right about now. If you’re unsure, I’ll make it easy for you to decide: the answer is YES.

Céline Tie Bag

Céline Tie Bag: Tie the Knot

The latest generation of Céline’s “it” bag is none other than the plainly titled “Tie.” Don’t expect to see a total revamp of their sought-after (and now somewhat ubiquitous) Trapeze and Luggage totes; it’s something of a hybrid of the two, thanks to its flamboyantly flared gusset and emphasized handle fasteners.

Athletic Stripes

Athletic Stripes: The Pick-Up Lines

With the weather finally warming up just the tiniest bit, some us of may be getting back in touch with our sporty sides. Why not show that off in our wardrobes, too? Athletic stripes add a sense of sports club chic to bags from every price point, whether it be an already sleek clutch or an oversized tote.

Lady Gaga x Versace Athena Bag

Lady Gaga x Versace Athena Bag: Versace, Versace, Versace

Another day, another eye-popping ensemble from Gaga! This white queen look is so bizarre, and yet, I love everything about it. It’s as if she’s a ghostly vision from a Japanese manga. And true to her devotion to Donatella, Gaga’s carrying a Versace Athena bag.

Smythson Quentin Jones Collaboration

Smythson x Quentin Jones Panama Collection: Artistic License

Some collaborations are nothing but a natural fit. Smythson’s latest Panama Collection marks the second capsule partnership between the leather company and artist Quentin Jones. Best of all, I love Smythson and their clean, simple shapes readily lend themselves to artistic embellishment.

Jil Sander Leather Tote

Jil Sander Mirrored-Leather Tote: Through the Looking Glass

Look who’s back! Mirrored leather, high-shine and unapologetic, has returned to the scene, and I definitely need to get in on the glossy action. Especially when it’s done this right: reflective silver can easily go the way of a disco inferno – be wary of construction when it comes to this fickle leather; one wrong move and you’ve gotten something cheap and tacky that should be left on the retro dance floor.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Nappa Ayers Bags

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Nappa Ayers Bags: The Venetian Way

The age-old expression, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” has never rang truer than when it comes to the iconic and famed Bottega Veneta weave. The beauty lies in the brand’s unique magic: their signature intrecciato technique is instantly recognizable, no second guessing required, without a logo or nameplate to be found. Who needs it?

Tory Burch Laser-Cut Garden Tote

Tory Burch Laser-Cut Garden Tote: Garden of Delights

Spring has officially sprung and with it, a whole new crop of bags! I’ve recently discovered a love of gardening (okay, more like planting herbs, not actual flowers – I’ll leave that to the professionals), placing Tory Burch’s white laser-cut tote at the top of my list.
