How good are these bags? We already know master of whimsy Charlotte Olympia can execute evening kitsch to perfection, but finding out she can do bigger bags equally well makes her my new hero.
When it comes to shoppers, it’s time for canvas to move on over and make room for wool! At least that’s how I feel when I look at this Marni. While chilly weather doesn’t necessarily require a wool bag, there’s no denying that this has the right look for the season. Broad stripes give it an energized feel that I love.
How much do I love Jil Sander? My love for the ultimate minimalist brand is seemingly exponential, as whenever I think they can’t get much better, they go and take the basic hobo and reinvent it. The change isn’t just in the coy “string sack” name. It’s crazy that all it takes is two little details to change virtually everything about a standard style.
With MICHAEL Michael Kors becoming so ubiquitous (look around the mall or TSA line, and see how many you can spot), it has definitely chipped away at the luxury of the Michael Kors Collection. So be it, thinks Michael, as he checks the balance of his bank account. But I call it like I see it, and this is a great bag.
It’s all about extremes. When it comes to Balenciaga’s most recent totes, I wasn’t into their chunky, giant chain straps, so instead I’m slowly falling for the flipside: this leaner, meaner shopper tote with razor-thin straps.
When it comes to fringe, there’s a fine line. Everyone is doing it now, and you can always bet designs run the gamut from good taste to bad form to just plain ugly looks…
