Accessories

Tory-Burch-Monkey-Bag-Charm

The market for handbag accessories has been exploding every since Fendi debuted its immediately sold-out Bag Bugs, and this holiday season finds us with more options than every to make our everyday bags look a little newer, a little more personal and a lot more fun.

Chanel-WOCs-Wallets-and-Card-Cases

We brought you an in-depth look at Chanel’s Cruise 2016 handbag lookbook last week, but when we got to poking around the brand’s website, we realized that wasn’t the full story. The number of small leather goods, including the popular Wallet on Chain (WOC) bags, the brand includes in the seasonal spotlight fluctuates with each collection, and this time, there were quite a few pieces well worth some attention.

New-Designer-iPhone-6S-Cases

Even though I spend the vast majority of my time writing and thinking about handbags, the accessory I actually interact with the most is my iPhone case. I have a 6 Plus, and the size and beauty of the thing only encourages me to interact with it even more.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Sleep Mask Pink

Typically when we talk about luxury accessories, it involves wallets, bag charms, and fobs. Some brands know how to expand their luxury accessory offerings even further and Bottega Veneta does just that. Bottega Veneta offer a full home line that includes some of the most decadent items, like a buttery soft and purely luxurious leather bed frame along with intrecciato tissue boxes to name a couple.

LeSportsac-Purse-Organizer

I’ve been aware of the existence of handbag organizers basically as long as I’ve been aware of handbags. These in-bag accessories are often the province of upstart businesses looking to tap into an existing need with a product that doesn’t need to be branded and marketed in the same lush (read: expensive) ways that handbags themselves are.

Prada-Robot-Trick-Nancy-Bag-Charm

In a certain way, the rise and continued popularity of bag charms makes a lot of sense. Handbag are incredibly expensive, and although most bag charms aren’t exactly cheap, buying one to put on a more classic bag in your arsenal is a lot more cost-effective than buying a whole novelty bag that you may only use sporadically or for a single season.

Best-Wallet-on-Chain-Bags

Tiny bags may be a huge (and persistent) trend, but not all little purses are created equally. While some are simply a small receptacle for whatever you can wedge into them, others provide a level of organization that makes it easier to leave the house without one of the biggest, most important things in any woman’s purse: a wallet.

Fendi-Karlito-Fur-Bag-Charm

The first run of the Fendi Karlito Bag Charm was so successful that I never actually saw one for sale anywhere, either online or in stores. The wait lists were long, and although Megs was able to get on one and get a Karlito of her own, plenty of people who wanted to carry the tiny, furry visage of Karl Lagerfeld were out of luck.

Comme des Garcons Neon Continental Wallet, $280 via Net-a-Porter

Despite our obvious fondness for leather accessories, we don’t talk much about wallets. We never have. It’s not because we lack appreciation for a good wallet, but more that they’re hidden and utilitarian, when compared to pretty much everything else we spend our time obsessing about over here.

Hermes-Hermy-Cravache-Plush-Horse

When I really sit down and think about it, it seems like being very wealthy would be, among other things, super weird. It would be great in a lot of ways, of course–for instance, I could command someone to grill me a medium-rare steak for lunch, and I would surely enjoy that.
