Resort and pre-fall shows are always harder to pin down than the spring and fall shows that take place during the global fashion week circuses, but as the in-between collections become ever more important to designers’ bottom lines, the hype around them (and the availability of photos of the collections) has increased exponentially.
The only thing better than a sale is when the sale itself goes on sale, and that’s what’s happening right now at Shopbop. The site already has a great selection at a hefty discount, but from now through June 25, shoppers can take an extra 25% off all markdowns with code 25EXTRA. Seriously, though, what are you waiting for? We know you love Shopbop.
While we’ve all been occupied with sale season (and for good reason), the new arrivals sections at our favorite retailers have been quietly filling up with brand new bags to peruse and contemplate. Many of these bags are new colors and embellishments of old favorites, but some of them are even more interesting: new structures of existing bags or brand new designs unto themselves.
Thom Browne is a small American brand that’s highly influential in the worlds of menswear and suiting, which means Browne’s is probably not the first name anyone thinks of when it comes to handbags. The brand has made a small selection of totally gorgeous, impeccably made doctor bags for years, though, and they were a largely under-the-radar pick of people in the know.
As you might have noticed, it’s a Friday afternoon in June and those of you who haven’t yet managed to sneak out of work undetected probably don’t feel like doing much of anything. If that’s the case, then you’ve come to the right spot: we want to know what bag you’re currently carrying and what you think of it.
People think a lot about protecting and nurturing their skin during the summer, but your hair is just as needy when it comes to care and protection from the elements. Not only that, but summer brings along with it a whole set of styling hurdles for hair that is at all prone to frizz (and if yours is not, consider yourself extremely lucky).
It’s only right that a matriarch of a family would have the best collection of Birkins, and Kris Jenner is definitely ahead of her daughters in the Hermès-acquisition column. You might expect Kim to be the heir to that particular handbag throne (and, to her credit, she has some beautiful rarities), but when it comes to Birkins, Khloé Kardashian might really be the sister next in line.
The Givenchy Horizon Bag is the biggest addition to Givenchy’s Fall 2016 (or, in this case, Pre-Fall; the brand uses a Fall and Fall-Winter system to differentiate the collections instead of the standard industry jargon) lineup, but for some reason, it’s conspicuously absent from the brand’s seasonal lookbook, which just arrived on the Givenchy website.
