Emmy Rossum x Gerard Darel Plum Bag Riviera: Cut-Out & Run

I’ve been an admirer of Gerard Darel since I bought my first 24 Hour bag in Paris five years ago. The designer’s pieces have slowly but surely been making their way over to US stores, so I always love to see celebs carrying them. My girl Emmy Rossum has been jetting around LA with the […]

Gerard Darel Spring 2013: Chunk of Change

Gerard Darel has streamlined its Spring 2013 collection, replacing the popular bohemian-flavored bags with elegantly structured pieces defined by clean lines.

The scoop on Gerard Darel

Are you so pissed that you can’t walk into a store and buy as many Gerard Darel bags as you’d like? The French would like to keep it that way, for a while longer anyway (because this summer you’ll be able to find GD bags and clothes at Bloomingdales!). You’ve been asking me the scoop […]

Gerard Darel Redux: Gold Python

Read it and weep my darlings. Carrie Underwood strikes gold with the glittering gold version of my python bag. Carrie dined at Il Fornaio with her nephews and strolled the streets of Beverly Hills – toting this rare and ultra-glamorous handbag. Although unavailable for purchase in the United States, Gerard Darel python bags are quickly […]

$895 at Check out the latest Gerard Darel creation featured in its Fall 2008 Ads starring Mamie Gummer, the Midday Midnight Bag! For noon or midnight, I just love the casual vibe of this bag. It’s actually more Kelly’s style than mine but I am ready to loosen up and have some fun as […]
