Last week, Chavie Lieber of Racked interviewed me for an in-depth look at the cult of Goyard. It’s a brand unlike any other we cover; even Hermès, in all of its tradition and conservatism, still debuts seasonal collections at Paris Fashion Week, sells a portion of its product line on its website and has boutiques in all the world’s major luxury markets.
From the moment we entered the Coach Spring 2015 show, it was clear that creative director Stuart Vevers has yet to end his love affair with the idea of traditional Americana. From the engine sounds on the soundtrack to the flat, dusty West Texas vistas on the walls, the theme was much subtler in the bags, outwear and clothes than it was in the collection’s surroundings.
Yesterday marked the first day of New York Fashion Week Spring 2015, and that means it was also our first day of street-style bag-spotting outside of Lincoln Center. Check out the spoils of Vlad’s photographic efforts below, and be sure to check back every day or for of the notable accessories that we spotted on the stylish sidewalks of Fashion Week.
By now, you know the drill: Mansur Gavriel bags are cult favorites, they’re permanently sold out and it’s virtually impossible to get your hands on one without a months-in-advance pre-order. The good news, however, is that an opportunity for one such pre-order just arose at Moda Operandi, and it includes canvas and soft leather bags that are brand new for Spring 2015.
September isn’t exactly a notable sale season, but that doesn’t mean that intrepid shoppers won’t have their searches rewarded. Over at farfetch.com, one of our favorite international shopping sites, you’ll find over 500 designer bags still on sale, including pieces from in-demand brands like Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Fendi.
Even though it’s not Friday, it’s always Bag Deals Day in our hearts, so we’re bringing you a weekly helping of the Internet’s best handbag markdowns a day early. (Also, Fashion Week has all of us thoroughly disoriented.) Sales are getting scarce, so we looked extra hard for the most desirable bags, and we think you’ll be pleased with the results.
She’s already been photographed carrying (“carrying”) Chanel in CR Fashion Book, and with parents like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it was clearly only a matter of time until little North West started carrying bags of her own, even if she still lacks the manual dexterity necessary to actually grasp them in her adorably chubby little toddler hands.
There is only one acceptable way to celebrate an occasion in corporate America: cake in the conference room. Because Yahoo! Style is both fancier and flush with appreciably more dollars than the average American company, not only did employees probably get their requisite celebration, but the new vertical put cake front-and-center on its homepage, in the form of handbags.
If you’re like me, you don’t buy a new wardrobe every season; not only does that require a limitless budget, but it’s kind of a waste when you have things from last year that you’ve been dying to return to your regular rotation.
