Kotur Globe Neon Perspex Box Clutch: Oozing Style

Clear bags, be they PVC or perspex, will be part of a trend to contend with in the upcoming warm weather months. And while the transparent look has been modernized and streamlined just in time for spring/summer, Kotur is actually drawing from the past with their perspex clutch – from the groovy ‘70s to be … Continue reading Kotur Globe Neon Perspex Box Clutch: Oozing Style

New Year, New Bag: The Year of the Snakeskin

The Year of the Snake begins on Feb 10th this year! It’s all about focus, progress, and attention to detail.  I’m a Rooster, so Snakes are my best friends according to the Chinese Zodiac (…and Cows, too!). So it’s no wonder I love snake and python bags. I think a new snakeskin bag will bring … Continue reading New Year, New Bag: The Year of the Snakeskin

Kotur Spring 2013 Collection: Happy Hour

J’adore Kotur! From the psychedelic (the clear-and-gold Glitter Globe is sure to be a sparkly distraction!) to the quintessential (deceptively real snake-embossed leather looks fabulous with an ombré makeover), Kotur is in a particularly upbeat mood for Spring ’13! Which puts me in a similarly optimistic frame of mind. How can you not feel good … Continue reading Kotur Spring 2013 Collection: Happy Hour

Kotur Levin Large Perspex Minaudiere: Beauty Before Youth

Brown lacquer and mother-of-pearl resin with black enamel is dreadfully old-lady-ish, but this little box clutch exudes a young, upbeat quality. Kotur has ingeniously invited neon yellow and powder blue to crash the stodgy tea party, and these two bright tones change everything! Two flashes of peppy color are sure to spike the punch, so … Continue reading Kotur Levin Large Perspex Minaudiere: Beauty Before Youth

Top 5 Surfer-Girl Bags: Aloha Spirit

Summertime and the living’s easy. Especially when you get to spend it catching waves and hanging on the beach. Not so much if you’re more of a sand bunny like me and can’t catch a wave to save her life (they call girls who’ve taken boards to the face “blah-malahs,” by the way!). But we … Continue reading Top 5 Surfer-Girl Bags: Aloha Spirit

Kotur Fall 2012 Collections: Kotur Unleashes Killer Kollaborations

For Fall 2012, minaudiere master Fiona Kotur is set to introduce us to a harder-edged line, one that reveals a stronger, perhaps tougher side of the clutch designer’s vision. Jolting lines and razor-sharp meldings of metal and snakeskin are sure to be a refreshing change after summer’s softer clutches. Even more exciting: the new season … Continue reading Kotur Fall 2012 Collections: Kotur Unleashes Killer Kollaborations
