I indulge in hight street fun, but it’s luxury fashion with a personal touch that really excites me. For the record, this is not your grandma’s macramé. Just check out Bottega Veneta’s appliquéd box clutch (on NET-A-PORTER for $2,450). It may have been delicately assembled, but there’s nothing delicate about the look.
Just when you think you have the aesthetic of Bottega Veneta all nailed down, they take their bags in a completely different direction. The visionary Tomas Maier gets crafty for Resort this time, employing Moroccan techniques to raffia-accented loafers and adding bits of macramé to fringe-embroidered dresses.
It seems like NET-A-PORTER’s sale will never end, and I never want it to! One of the best additions today? Jason Wu’s star-embellished Karlie clutch ($1,077).

Let’s face it: guys have stuff they need to carry around, too! So why not seize Father’s Day as an opportunity to make his life a little easier? Here, a […]

Instead, he takes lush leather and fashions it to resemble the laidback material as a haphazard trim. He doesn’t stop there: we get a further upgrade, courtesy of […]
I love so many things about leather, naturally, but best thing about it may be its far-reaching versatility. Thanks to stamping, molding, and big imaginations, leather can take on any mood, anywhere. Whether it’s in the form of animal prints, quintessential intrecciato, Baroque opulence, or polka dots, the embossing of leather doesn’t just provide intriguing […]
Yes, we have the sophisticated saddle bag, but the equine trend goes much deeper than that, as in the feed bag. These aren’t drawstring bucket totes. Those are just ugly and gross.
