I saw the Chloé Bronte at Barneys this past weekend, and I instantly fell in love with the straightforward simplicity of its design. I am always drawn to structured shoulder bags, but this one feels even more special than most. The emphatic yet not-chunky hardware doesn’t infringe on the elemental effect of the bag – which is rare.
While it’s not unusual for tots to play dress up, these celeb kids take the game to a whole new level. Suri Cruise leads the pack in a navy bow-embellished dress from Oscar de la Renta (at Oscar de la Renta for $295). She’s the picture of a classic schoolgirl, save for her furry bright pink coat, a touch that ODLR probably wouldn’t have added, but that any little girl would love.
It is so refreshing to witness an utterly gimmick-free collection. As much as I love summer fur and leather in theory, such appropriated materials really have no place on my summer holidays! For those who don’t wish to burn up at the beach, Clare imparted an airy opulence onto the scene for Spring 2014.
Okay, we’re not even halfway through the decade, so there are certainly more trends to come! But we already spotted quite a few, ranging from vampy cutout shoes to simple ballet flats. It seems that we’ve finally learned to mix style and comfort. There’s a little something for everyone, whether you like a bird’s eye view atop skyscraper heels or prefer to stay grounded.
This was the decade of the it bag. I don’t mean to say that there weren’t iconic bags before – the term “it bag” was coined in the ‘90s! And there were many (yes, Dior is on this list twice – no, I won’t apologize). Which of these styles did you carry?
