Top 11 Bags of Texture: Reach Out and Touch Me

Alexander Wang Alpha Leather Bucket Bag

Alexander Wang Alpha Leather Bucket Bag: Weekend Update

Do you remember when Alexander Wang released the Diego bucket bag back in 2009? Not only did the tightly cinched design make it a hard task to yank anything out of it, hefty hardware, like chunky studs covering the bottom, made the bag insanely heavy with nothing even in it.

Alexander Wang Sneaker Large Shoulder Bag: Kick It!

Top White Bags With a Kick

Top White Bags With a Kick: White On!

There is nothing like a crisp white bag for summer. But I tend to like my bags with some kind of twist, and black trim doesn’t just make for a high sense of contrast. Done right, it adds the right amount of urban edge to classic, polished white.

Top 5 Newsworthy Pieces: What’s Black and White and Red All Over?

This old riddle comes into play when checking out the current trend that takes black and white to whole new heights. The answer to this age-old joke is, of course, the newspaper (as in, read all over), and I definitely consider this trend newsworthy.

Fall 2015 Trend Report

Fall 2015 Trend Report: The Mini Bag is Major

I’ve long lauded the pleasures of the mini bag. Cute, compact, and yes, scaled to my petite size, how could I not? So I couldn’t be much happier that the baby-sized accessory is proving to be the big bag trend of the Fall ’15 season.
