Trompe L’oeil Bags

Trompe-L’oeil Bags: Tricks Up Your Sleeve

While the adage, “things aren’t always as they seem,” may be old, it applies to some of the freshest designs out there. In English, trompe l’oeil translates to “deceives the eye,” and these designers make that deception one that you’ll welcome with a smile.

The New Hoop

The New Hoop: Cure for the Common Earring

The hoop earring is as generic as it comes – almost as common as the stud. It first appeared roughly four centuries ago in Asia, so I’d say it’s about time we give the style a new look! From prim and proper mini hoops to the shoulder-scraping, there’s been no dearth of sizes, but what about shapes and materials?

Alexander Wang x H&M: Active Imagination

Between Target and H&M collaborations, designer fashion is more accessible than ever, and those collections are just getting better all the time. If you thought Isabel Marant’s H&M tour de force was highly anticipated, then there’s not even a word to describe the mania that’s about to ensue for Alex Wang.

Kotur Clutch

Kotur Spring 2015 Collection: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

What’s at the end of the rainbow? It’s not a pot of gold. It’s something better: Kotur! Inspired by the art and design attitudes of the 1950s, Fiona Kotur looked to the Robert Indiana’s sign paintings and Memphis’ Lansky Brothers, the famed tailors who fashioned Elvis’ signature look.

Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter-on-Leather Bag

Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter-on-Leather Bag: Party of Fun

Other than the fact you’re inevitably going to end up with traces of fuchsia glitter all over yourself, this is the best holiday bag ever. If there was ever a fun party bag made exclusively for the eternal little girl who happens to be all grown up on the outside, Saint Laurent’s Lulu bag is it. Even the name connotes youth and frivolity.

Kate Spade New York Charlotte Olympia Bag

Charlotte Olympia Take Me Away Box-Clutch Bag and Kate Spade New York Hello Shanghai Cruz Mini-Bag: Snob or Slob?

In high school, I discovered that fortune cookies are actually American (it appears the Chinese invented almost everything except these cookies). Growing up, I awaited the close of each meal at my family’s favorite Chinese restaurants for those damn cookies, believing they held the keys to my future.

Sarah Jessica Parker x Snob Essentials Croco-Embossed Jewel Box Handbag: Carrie On

Had you told me 15 years ago that one day Ms. Bradshaw would be carrying a bag that Kelly and I designed, I would have fainted, which is almost what I did this morning when I saw the lovely SJP with our green Jewel Box!
