Top Whipstitched Bags: Whip It Good

We’ve always appreciated good whipstitching on a bag. It’s instant texture, it’s rustic elegance, it’s a detail that, when done right, doesn’t translate to one that tries too hard. But most importantly, it’s great only when done with restraint – a touch of trim here, a jolt of punctuation there. This season, whipstitching is also a big trend, so jump on it. Here, my pick of the best bags that will have you in stitches…

Balance Your Dueling Personalities: Tough Vs. Dainty

Tod’s Spring 2016 Bags

How Tod’s Got Its Groove Back

Alessandra Facchinetti seems to have hit her stride at Tod’s.

It’s understandable why she would want to get her feet wet first before presenting a collection this different from Tod’s usual fare. After all, she was let go as Creative Director at Valentino in 2008 because she didn’t represent enough from their archives (because eschewing creativity for a ready-made formula is surely what got Valentino the success it enjoys now). But now that Alessandra has proven she can properly pay homage to the Italian fashion house, she’s ready to bring it into a new era.

Golden Globe Trend: Cape Dresses

Can we all just agree that Jennifer Lopez was the best-dressed at the Globes? That dazzlingly bright marigold Giambattista Valli gown with the cape was everything. The caped-crusader trend definitely didn’t start with the always-flawless star (remember Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford at the 2012 Academy Awards?), but there’s no doubt she’ll be the one to mainstream it. Be prepared to see cape everything, starting now.
