The Kardashians are at their most aesthetically impressive when they move as a unit, and every year, they attend Easter services together in a haze of whites and pastels that’s often a stark change for the frequently black-clad crew.
If you’re a longtime bag lover or have even a passing interest in Hermès, you’ve probably seen plenty of photos of the brand’s bags with colorful scarves wrapped around the handles. Hermès makes a silk design, the Twilly, specifically for that purpose (although it’s also used for other things), and Birkin aficionados in particular have long used it as a way to customize their bags while protecting the handles from wear, discoloration and oil absorption.
Although it can seem like it at times, not everyone wants an It Bag, or even a bag that’s easily identifiable by brand. Even if you do love a conspicuous bag, you might not want to carry one for every occasion–maybe your boss or sister-in-law is the judgmental type, or maybe you work in an extremely conservative office.

Lupita Nyong’o’s rise to fame is one of the best things that’s happened to celebrity fashion-watchers in years. When she first caught the public’s attention during her Oscar run for 2013’s 12 Years a Slave, she established herself as someone who has a keen sense for color, supports designers both big and small and takes fashion risks that almost always pay off.
At its best, fashion isn’t about fitting in–it’s about standing out. Right now, Coach is offering complimentary monogramming on a wide selection of both men’s and women’s leather goods, either via a removable hangtag on most pieces or, on select bags, directly on the design itself. You choose your color and font size and Coach does all the work; check out both the Coach women’s monogram shop and its men’s counterpart now.
During his 16-year tenure at the helm of Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs tended to experiment with prints in a few specific ways; either he went for straightforward takes on the brand’s iconic monogram and Damier patterns, or he brought in an art world titan to shake up the monogram for a limited edition capsule collection.
We hear the same complaint from you guys a lot: “Ugh, this bag is just trying to be a Birkin.” Sometimes it feels like a fair assessment and other times it feels like the evidence is a little thin, but either way, you guys have picked up on something important–brands really are turning out a lot of (at least vaguely) Birkinesque bags lately.
