If you’re looking for a deal today, we’ve got some news for you. Our friends at YOOX recently marked down a bunch of stock up to an extra 80% off, resulting in some of the biggest designer discounts you’ll find anywhere on the Internet.

There are few sacred things in handbag design, but among them is the Hermès Birkin. When Hermès is feeling creative, the brand generally looks to the Kelly to make tweaks and create new versions–we documented nearly a dozen in our guide to Hermès bag styles, and that doesn’t include limited editions.
The Academy Awards, because of their extremely formal and buttoned-up nature, often make for boring bag-spotting. Thankfully, though, this year’s red carpet provided more handbag eye candy than we’re used to. From vintage Van Cleef & Arpels to crocodile and rhinestone Louis Vuitton, there’s plenty to look at in the photos below.
As you might have noticed, we didn’t exactly flood the site the New York Fashion Week coverage last week. That wasn’t an oversight; we’ve found that, over the years, you guys really only care about seeing the great bag collections that go down the global runways, as well as the great bags that pop up outside.
Before we start, I have a very sincere question: Why doesn’t Olivia live in a doorman building? Those are certainly not a unique-to-New York phenomena, and Liv can clearly afford the kind of accommodations that would include a staff that looks the other way; lord knows there must be plenty of buildings in DC that specialize in that.
We’ve made it to yet another Friday, and if it’s as cold where you are as it is where we are, we’re hoping that you don’t have to leave your house or office for the foreseeable future. If you’re looking for indoor activities to occupy you until approximately late March, we’d like to suggest you shop our latest crop of bag deals.
If you’ve been following Alexander Wang for more than a season or two, odds are that many of the bags he sent down his Fall 2015 runway this week will look familiar to you. That’s not just because they were mostly re-proportioned takes on two of his most popular shapes, the Rocco and Emile, but because they were black, as all of Wang’s most popular bags have started out being.
It’s hard to think of another brand that’s had as meteoric of a rise as Mansur Gavriel; the design duo’s bucket bags still inspire months-long waiting lists seasons after their debut, and the rest of the bags in the brand’s lineup sell pretty quickly, too.
