Tod’s Passante Patta Media Bag: A Safe Bet

Rochas Miki Soft Shiny Top Handle: Ladies Don’t Slouch

Or do they? A prim, ladylike yet light, slouchy bag may sound like somewhat of an oxymoron, but Rochas proves that proper and casual can work in harmony. The house designed their Fall 2011 collection with one word in mind, a word that often comes out of bag snobs mouths: chic. It turns out Rochas’ […]
