From ordinary to extraordinary: your average tote, the one featuring an oversized pocket on the front, has just become a covetable, eye-popping bag that’s just as great for work as it is for play.
Here’s a fun, easy tote that’s equally great for travel and the gym. I just wish it was priced for such casual activities. Coming in at just over a grand, the price of Balenciaga’s new Cabas tote still isn’t bad for what it is, but obviously I’m not going to toss sweaty gym shoes in here.
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.
The closing of fashion month doesn’t just mean the chance to take a moment to look away from the runway (whether it be front-row or online). It’s time to reflect on the best bags of the Spring ’15 season, courtesy of the grand finale in the City of Lights.
Each season, I try to prioritize essentials for the upcoming months (so as not to go wild and get five of each!). For fall, it’s all about flash and function – a burst of metallic via party-ready sandals, as well as flats and galoshes for those cold, rainy days when a black and white calf hair pump wouldn’t be able to hack it.
