I say this with confidence: When it comes to mastery of the craft and virtuosity of divine execution, Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo are unparalleled. In a most emotional Fall 2014 show, the pair made their inspiration felt by each and every onlooker: unconventional women deeply rooted in a moment of change.
My favorite dressmaker may just become my favorite bag maker yet. Watch this video I made backstage of the Classico bag. The man is pushing envelopes, literally. These envelope-style bags constructed of origami folds (fastened by a single magnet) allow you to play with and change up the flap of the bag at your whim.
