We first told you about The Row’s crazy patchwork fur backpack way back in December, but now we have a price to put to the bag: $16,900. Rachel Zoe’s email newsletter The Zoe Report recently sent out an endorsement of this bag, revealing the exorbitant price, and frankly I’m surprised it’s not a little bit higher.
Whenever a bag becomes as big of a hit as the Celine Luggage Tote, other brands are bound to take notice of what made it so successful. And that’s not just true of smaller brands looking to get a piece of the pie or department store or discount labels looking to capitalize on a trend at a bargain-basement price point; other major designers would be silly not to co-opt design elements that consumers respond to so favorably.
After two weeks of exploring the handbag collections of celebrities whose tastes run close to those in the fashion industry – really, does it get more on-the-nose chic than Miranda Kerr and the Olsen Twins? – we thought we’d take things in a different direction entirely and explore the accessories whims of someone who marches firmly to the beat of her own drummer.
There’s no official measure to test whether or not something has officially become a trend, but the unofficial standard that I use goes something like this: When three different pieces from three different brands repeat the same element, and those pieces are all available at roughly the same time, it’s a pretty good bet that more of the same is on the way from other brands and at other price points.
