WANT Les Essentiels da la Vie Kastrup Backpack

Christies Handbag and Accessories Auction September 2014

There are few things I enjoy more than poring over the lots in a new auction. When you’re already well-acquainted with what’s available in stores, a well-curated group of rare bags and accessories, culled from the world’s best-stocked closets, is the best way to get the thrill of the new. Thankfully, that’s exactly what I found in the Christie’s Online Luxury Handbags and Accessories Auction, which just launched. Read More…

Fendi Spring 2015 Handbags 9

In journalism school, my favorite professor once told me that reviewing something you love is much more difficult than reviewing something you hate, which means I’ve got my work cut out for me when it comes to Fendi’s Spring 2015 bags. After scoping out the dozens (literally) of bags and small leather goods that models toted down the brand’s runway, I’ve become convinced that Karl Lagerfeld loves me and wants me to be happy. The bags are that beautiful. Read More…

Kim Kardashian Hermes So Black Birkin

Here’s Kim Kardashian, leaving the dermatologist’s office after what was obviously just a quick consultation that did NOT involve Botox injections in low key, all-black gym clothes. Kim is carrying her trusty Hermès So Black Birkin. We’ve seen Kim carry this gorgeous bag numerous times, and I would guess that it’s probably her all-time fave.

bibi2cuori Instagram Celebrity

Instagram has been flooded with both amazing bags from fashion week and new fall purchases, but we couldn’t help but notice one Instagram user in particular, @bibi2cuori.

Maybe it was the pictures from her recent travels that caught our eyes, or maybe it was her extensive collection of colorful Hermès and Chanel bags that caused us to find ourselves endlessly scrolling through her feed.

Best Burgundy Bags for Fall 2014

Fall is upon us, and we love covering the seasonal trends as we see them arise. Amanda already shared 20 burgundy bags to start your fall wardrobe, and today I’m revisiting the subject.

Burgundy bags can be found in almost every designer’s handbag selection for fall, and it doesn’t take much wondering to figure out why.

Chanel Alligator Boy Bag

Chanel’s Fall 2014 show, set in an ultra-luxury supermarket constructed inside the Grand Palais in Paris, was perhaps the biggest spectacle ever for a brand that loves a spectacle. With bags styled like packaged steaks inside of stuff chain grocery baskets, it was easy to get lost in the absurdist tableau and miss the fact that, among the novelty, there were plenty of wearable, covetable bags and accessories to be found.

Now that the bags have arrived in Chanel boutiques and are available for perusal on Chanel’s website, it’s a lot easier to find the signal among the noise. On their own, almost all of the bags feel light and luxurious, and they’re just irreverent enough to both feel current and have staying power. Check out the new bags, complete with pricing info, below.
