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.
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.
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.
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. The price you see also includes duty, so shopping from a boutique in Italy is just as simple as ordering from a US department store.
