Did you note the disturbance in the atmosphere at the end of last week? If so, I’m pretty sure what you sensed were Pre-Fall 2015 pre-orders slowly opening up across the Internet, including Valentino Pre-Fall 2015 handbags at Neiman Marcus.

Yesterday, we brought you news of some new Monogram Canvas prints that Louis Vuitton is trying out for summer, and now we have some news on the leather front. On Twitter yesterday, the brand unveiled its newest leather design, the Louis Vuitton Volta Bag, alongside its new ad campaign with returning star Michelle Williams.
Bag: Rafe Andromeda Clutch
Price: $498 via Anthropologie
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Wedding season is upon us, and if you want a special little bag to carry to events all summer long, this is easily the most gorgeous one you’ll find for $500 or less.
In designing the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour, it seems like the brand was betting on the fact that there would be an enthusiastic market for a modernized, anonymized take on the classic Hermès Birkin. Although there was much gnashing of teeth in handbag circles when the design debuted, the bet has paid off in spades for the brand, and famous, fashionable women have been some of the bag’s biggest proponents.
In order to keep its huge fan base satisfied, Louis Vuitton has reinvented its iconic monogram prints in dozens of ways, starting during the tenure of Marc Jacobs as creative director. That tradition has continued under Nicolas Ghesquiere, and for Summer 2015, the brand has released a series of bags in two new prints.
You guys, I’m ready to make a somewhat surprising declaration: Last night’s episode of Scandal was good. Not “good for this season,” or “good relative to all the bad episodes lately,” but legitimately, objectively good. The stuff going on felt exciting and like we were continuing to move through the plot, and even though last week’s episode had a pretty significant red herring, this week didn’t slow down when it reversed course.
There ain’t no party like a Chanel party because a Chanel party is full of beautiful people with even more beautiful handbags. As they do every year, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld descended on the Tribeca Film Festival to host the Chanel Artists Dinner, which celebrates Lagerfeld’s favorite people: actresses and other creatives, mostly (but not always) of the indie variety.
It’s time to celebrate another work week completed with another round of bag deals, and this week, we’re clearly ready for spring. We found a bunch of bags both bright and pale to suit whatever your warm-weather style might be, but if your preference (or your office dress code) runs more toward neutrals, we have several of those as well.
As the weather has steadily warmed in New York City, I’ve heard a familiar refrain from my friends: Ugh, my feet are so gross from winter. Ugh, I need to get a pedicure. New York is especially difficult on feet because of all the walking involved in living here, and the task of undoing all the winter’s snow-booted damage can seem daunting.
