Top 5 Statement Coats

Top 5 Statement Coats: Bundle Up!

Covering up for fall and winter tends to annoy the fashion crowd. Who wants to conceal a great outfit? The secret is to make your coat the main event, and with outerwear printed and paneled like this, you should have no trouble doing just that. Each coat strikes the balance between sophistication and daily wearability. Which one will you be cozying up in this season?

Trend Alert: Graphic Black and White

Sensing some déjà vu? You’re not wrong! If the runways at New York Fashion Week are any indication, last spring’s graphic black and white trend will be continuing on through next year, meaning that you can indulge in monochrome madness all fall and winter long. The combo proves that you need no color at all to make a bold statement – just contrast.

Top Warm and Fuzzy Bags: Sheared Genius

Just because I don’t like long and fuzzy fur on my bag, that doesn’t mean I’m opposed to the whole concept. I’ve warmed up slightly after seeing the latest crop of shearling bags.

Top 5 Ombré Accessories

Top 5 Ombré Accessories: Fading Into Fall

Sad news – summer’s coming to a close (although you wouldn’t know it from the sweltering heat I’m in). Now is the time to fill your closet with a new season’s worth of accessories, and what better way to transition into fall than with ombré? Choose a subtle barely-there illusion or go dramatic à la the neon degrade on Proenza’s dot clutch.

Going Back in Time: Iconic Bags of the ‘70s

The ‘70s were coined as the “Me Decade,” and this emphasis on individuality brought about a wide range of styles from that of groovy hippies to DVF’s iconic wrap dress to glam rock David Bowie. One movement defined bag design more than any other, though – feminism.

Candy-Inspired Fashion: An Affection for Confections

Some people love candy, others fashion, and frankly, most love both! Satisfy your sweet tooth and your Bag/Jewel Snobbery all at the same time with Rauwolf’s gemstone bag (at Barneys New York for $1,470). It’s like an Astro pop, only it will never melt!

Animalia Accessories: Into the Wild

Fall 2013 is the season for big game. Whether it’s leopard, tiger, or zebra, you have to get in on the animalia action. Obviously, my adventure into the wild begins with bags. Kelly loves Givenchy’s cow-printed Antigona, but I’m all about the leopard ($3,440). For cow, I would have to go with Tom Ford’s Jennifer ($4,350) – the addition of solid color relaxes the print.

Proenza Schouler Courier Bag

Proenza Schouler PS Courier: At Your Service

Proenza Schouler’s latest and greatest, the PS Courier, is going to a steal a lot of bag-snob hearts. Mine included. The Proenza trademarks remain in tact, so there’s no mistaking who created your bag, but streamlined and mostly unadorned leather combined with a laidback attitude makes for a fresh delivery.

Proenza Schouler PS11 Mini Oil Slick Lea Bag

Proenza Schouler PS11 Mini Oil Slick Lea Bag: Black Gold

Proenza Schouler has struck oil yet again! I was just lamenting how Jack and Lazaro have a keen approach to keeping things fresh, and here we are with yet another covetable PS11 (and it’s a mini – my favorite!!). Patent leather gets an extra dose of shine thanks to this oil slick sheen. It’s reminiscent […]
