Best of European Resort 2013 Collections: Euro Trip

The European Resort collections: I could liken them to a surprise dessert, brought out on the house at a five-star restaurant. A little unexpected and thoroughly delectable (even though, after numerous courses of seasonal collections, you know you probably don’t need more treats!). This year, I’ve narrowed it down the crème de la crème. Here’s […]

The Celine Luggage Tote: What Makes A Legend

Unstoppable. Ubiquitous, without feeling tired. Soon-to-be iconic. These are the most accurate ways to describe the Celine Luggage tote. Released too long ago (back in 2010) to still be in the “trend” zone, this bag, as determined as it is covetable, knows no bounds. If you ask me – and pretty much any celebrity in the Western […]

The New Look: The Sleeker Shape of Things to Come

After many seasons of floppy-schloppy chic, I’m excited to see the commitment to sleek structure from the Parisian houses. The French understand the power of subtlety (perhaps more so than any other breed), and Fall 2012 is going to be one of refinement if they have any say in it! Céline toys with the triangle […]

Seen on the Street Roundup: Paris Fashion Week, Fall 2012

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: a bag can make or break your outfit. Few occasions make that more apparent than Fashion Week, when It-bags are seen on It-girls all over the sidewalk and in most cases they are “making” it. Here, the most noteworthy clutches, totes, and satchels of Paris, where […]

Pre-Fall 2012 Trend: Into the Nude

Sometimes the best and boldest way to make a statement is to not to try to make one at all. Such is the pattern that has taken shape with Pre-Fall 2012 footwear. Nude is the new color! When it’s done right, there is absolutely no shoe chicer, no pump more sophisticated, no ballet flat more […]

The New Platforms: Easy Does It

What comes around goes around – and the platform sandal clearly isn’t going anywhere. Something that has changed for Spring (and it’s not just the fact that you’ll be seeing more and more slim, pointy toed, and lean-heeled pumps): the mood of the platform. It’s no longer harsh and severe, a look we’ve gotten used […]

Top 5 New Bags of the Year: 2011 Really Took Shape

2011 may be old news, but the fresh bag silhouettes to come out of it are anything but. Out of some of the most prominent fashion houses, new shapes came to the forefront, proving that what makes an “It” bag is not flash and logo-driven panache but innovation of shape and mood. Here, the top […]
