Dior has an advantage that only a tiny handful of other fashion houses enjoy. Because the brand resides at the very top tier of fashion houses and because it has a history so rich and storied that it’d make a marketer weep, Dior can not only make handbags out of the world’s rarest, finest exotics and expect to sell all of them, but the brand can make interesting, challenging bags that retail for $30,000 and expect to sell those, too.

Today is International Women’s Day, and if you’re not familiar with it, plenty of fashion brands and companies are interested in broadening your awareness.

We’re in a bit of an off period for sales, but sometimes, that’s when the best bag deals can be found.

Even as an American customer, British stores are some of my favorite online shopping destinations, both for inspiration and acquisition, and the MATCHESFASHION.COM Shoe and Bag Guide is here to do both. British style has such a sense of boldness and fun to it, which leads to different stock choices, even when it comes to the sites’ buyers making selections from US brands.
Being able to browse stores near and far is one of the greatest advantages of online shopping, and farfetch.com takes things one step further by letting you order from luxury boutiques worldwide that might not otherwise have e-commerce capabilities. That means huge selections and lots of brands and colors, so if you’re looking for something not carried in your area (or in your country), you’re in luck.
Another fashion week has come and gone (this time, Milan Fashion Week), and all that’s left are the great bags to look forward to and the street style shots of the fashion insiders and celebs who attended. We’ll have more on Milan’s most notable runway bags tomorrow, but right now, we wanted to take a look at the best things we saw outside.
