Have you ever noticed that Valentino bags can get a little scarce sometimes? And not just the special, seasonal designs either – the regular Rockstud bags in standard colors, which have been available in basically the same iterations for what seems like an eternity, often take a bit of maneuvering to locate in a particular color or size. That just got a little easier, thanks to New York-based retailer Intermix, who now carries the brand on its website.

Here’s AnnaSophia Robb, in full Carrie Bradshaw costume on the set of The Carrie Diaries in New York, carrying a colorful Fendi 3D Enamel Studded Baguette. If you’re a stickler for historical accuracy, you’ll quickly realize the fallacy here. (More on that in a sec.) You can get the black version of this brand new Fendi Baguette (which is from Fendi’s Spring 2013 runway collection, by the way) for $2,690 at Neiman Marcus.
YOLO was absolutely the theme of this week’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kite surfing, snorkeling, cannon balls off of yachts, copious alcoholic beverage – there was a little something for everyone. “Yolo” was said at least 50 times, despite the fact that this phrase peaked from a cultural standpoint in 2012 and should really never be spoken aloud by people over the age of 18.
There are few people in the fashion industry hotter right now than Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci. He was the first designer at a truly exclusive brand to figure out that there would be a goldmine at the nexus of high fashion and streetwear, and just as many socialites as rap stars can’t wait to get their hands on Givenchy’s wares. And then there’s the fashion people, who absolutely salivate over pretty much whatever Tisci does – Net-a-Porter even carries a T-shirt that allows one to proclaim her allegiance to Team Tisci.
At first, the phrase Raf Simons x Eastpak Satin Backpacks sounds ridiculous. Raf Simons, creative director at Christian Effing Dior, not only made some backpacks for back-to-school staple brand Eastpak, but they’re satin? Despite the fact that I’m staring at the photos of said bags, and that I know Simons and Eastpak have collaborated three times before, it’s still not quite clicking for me, and that just makes me like the whole thing more.
The last PurseForum Roundup of July is here. [Editor's note: How'd that happen so fast?] Fall collections are on the horizon, but that doesn’t mean that PurseForum members have stopped shopping for summer. We visited Valentino, Coach, the Kitchen, plus we took in some beautiful Bag Showcases. Come join us!
Is it madness to invest $10K in a single handbag, or is it madness to invest $10K in a single handbag, and then get it in white? Reese Witherspoon seems like exactly the type of person who would tempt fate with a brilliant white Hermes Birkin. Here she is leaving a hair salon in LA with her perfectly unblemished Birkin in tow.
We have some good news and some bad news. First, the bad news: farfetch.com’s seasonal sale is almost over. The good news: it’s not over quite yet. You can still shop up to 60% off a whole slew of bags, shoes, clothes and accessories from the world’s best boutiques, and because products are sourced worldwide, sometimes that means 60% off a price that was already noticeably lower than what you’d pay in the US.
