Bottega-Veneta-Resort-2016-Bags-14

Bottega Veneta is impressive in a lot of ways–materials, construction, longevity–but perhaps most impressive is the brand’s refusal to float along with the trends of the moment. At Bottega, creative director Tomas Maier instead uses brand signatures, woven intrecciato leather and beyond, to construct a wardrobe of bags that real, grown women would be proud to wear.

Tory-Burch-Toggle-Messenger-Crossbody-Bag

College graduations have started happening around the country (southerners: we do this stuff early), and that means that many of you might have someone in your life who’s about to venture into the world of work on wobbly deer legs for the first time, and that person might even be you.

Givenchy-Nightingale-Bag-Small-Red

The Givenchy Nightingale was the first Givenchy bag I ever became aware of; before the brand became a handbag juggernaut with multiple super-popular designs, the Nightingale was the first one to catch the eyes of celebs and fashion people. For Pre-Fall 2015, the bag is getting a minimalist new makeover.

The-Handbag-Raincoat-Large

A lot of you responded with your own tales of woe when Megs wrote about getting caught in the rain with her pale pink Givenchy Antigona, so I suppose it shouldn’t surprise anyone that The Handbag Raincoat exist and is available to purchase at Shopbop in three sizes.

It’s hard to be unimpressed with anything that happens at golden hour in Palm Springs, which is exactly when the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2016 show took place last week.

Scandal-S4E21-Recap

Foxtail. Do you remember “Foxtail” being mentioned on any previous episode of Scandal? I do not, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. The shady B-613 project was eventually revealed, but we’ll have to wait until next week to see if it comes to fruition.

Bag-Deals-May-8

It’s set to be a balmy 80 degrees in NYC today, and hopefully the sun is also shining where you are. Even if it’s not, though, we have a little treat for you: our customary Friday morning roundup of the best bag deals and sales to be found on the Internet right now.

Moschino-Denim-Overall-Backpack

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Moschino has made yet another weird accessory that looks like something other than what it is. (It is a bag.)

This time, the weirdness is brought to us by way of the Moschino Denim Overall Backpack, which is such a bluntly descriptive name that it almost feels brilliant, in sort of a droll way.

Fendi Peekaboo Guide

The Fendi Peekaboo Bag has had a somewhat unusual trajectory. After its debut in 2009, it experienced the normal rise and fall of popularity that almost all bags have. Afterward, though, it did something that few bags every do–it came back on a couple years after its initial peak.
