It’s not often that I’m confused by handbags. Not only have I been writing about them (and obsessing over them) for a living for a few years now, but I have all the powers of Google at my fingertips, which means that I can generally clear up any questions I have without any problems. With that in mind, the fact that I can find literally no information about Time’s Arrow Handbags only makes me more intrigued.
Here’s Rihanna, leaving a club in London whilst carrying a Stella McCartney Holographic Clutch. This bag was from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2013 collection, so it’s no longer available online, tragically. As with all Stella McCartney bags, the leather here is faux, but in this case, works to the bag’s advantage, as the holographic effect is much stronger than what you’d usually see on a leather bag.
With last night’s episode of Real Housewives came a reminder that next week’s episode is the series’ 100th, and it’s kind of hilarious to look back on the very first season of Real Housewives. Does anyone even remember that it all started as a reality-TV response to Desperate Housewives? Or that it used to be centered exclusively around women living in the Coto de Caza gated community?
The grace with which the Olsen Twins walk the fashion-celebrity tightrope never ceases to amaze me. Not only is The Row one of perhaps only two celebrity-owned fashion lines to generate any true industry respect at all (the other, arguably, is Victoria Beckham’s), but Elizabeth and James, the sisters’ long-running contemporary label, churns out wearable, stylish, reasonably accessible clothes for chic young women, season after season.
Now that summer is well underway, the next long weekend that we’re looking forward to is the Fourth of July. Whether it’s a picnic in the park or a full-on beach party that you’ll be attending, celebrating in style is always on our minds. In that spirit, we’ve teamed up with Michael Kors to show you what would be in the ideal July 4th weekend bag.
I’ve always been a bit of a magpie. I’ve probably owned more pairs of silver shoes than black in my adult life, I’m prone to buying costume jewelry that doesn’t fit my personal style just because it’s so fun and crystal-covered that I need to have it in my possession, I own a shameful tube of glitter eye-liner. We all have our crosses to bear.
You know it’s a seriously dramatic episode when Kim’s divorce and baby drama alone can almost fill the full 40-45 minutes. All of the plotlines on this week’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians made me extremely tense – but these were highly emotional, nerve-hitting issues, weren’t they? I mean, gun control and Kim Kardashian’s divorce? Have you seen more headlines about anything else this year?
Here’s Sandra Bullock, being ushered out of a restaurant in London by a large entourage acting as human buffer zone between Sandra and her overzealous English fans/paparazzi. Sandra is currently in the UK promoting her new movie with Melissa McCarthy, The Heat. Her bag is the super luxe, hand-painted Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Python Bag, available for $3,595 at Net-a-Porter.
If you’ve ever walked along Canal Street, you probably have a good idea of just how big of a business fake handbags are on the black market in New York City. Even when you’re walking quickly, by yourself, with your sunglasses and headphones on (which are basically all the quick visual cues for “not a tourist, don’t bother me” in NYC), it’s hard to make it more than a few steps down that famous street without hawkers shoving price lists and stock cards in your face. Take your headphones off, and even above the roar of traffic and casual conversation, you can hear people murmuring “handbags, handbags” at every passing body. Those salespeople are out there for a reason – tourists flock to Canal to buy fake designer handbags and watches, which are illegal to sell, but not to purchase. If one New York City councilwoman gets her way, that’s about it change. Read More…
Considering the beloved menswear collections that Hedi Slimane created as the head of Dior Homme, it’s perhaps no surprise that his men’s clothes at Saint Laurent feel like they’ve found their groove more quickly than his womenswear. That’s where his experience lies, after all, and Slimane’s rock star aesthetic lends itself well to dressing cooler-than-thou dudes with narrow hips, who make up much of the premiere designer menswear audience in the first place.
