The-Many-Bags-of-Jennifer-Lopez-Part-2
Celebrity Style

Do you ever sit back and think how lucky we are to have Jennifer Lopez? She sings, she dances, she acts, she shows up on near-constant red carpets looking incredible–what a bounty. Jennifer always has a bunch of projects in the works, which keeps a steady stream of paparazzi images coming, and lately, we’ve noticed even more than normal.

Givenchy-Summer-2016-Bags-35

If you’re sick of prints, pricy exotics and weird embellishments and instead just want a nice leather bag you can carry in a lot of situations and seasons, let me point your attention toward Givenchy‘s Summer 2016 bags.

All four global fashion weeks have distinct strengths and weaknesses, and high-end bags is always one of New York’s. We’re a city that churns out some of the finest contemporary options in the world, from Mansur Gavriel to Coach, but once you start climbing the price ladder, things get a little bit tricker in the good ol’ US of A.

If you’re not done mourning Raf Simson’ decision to leave Dior (I’m not, still, and I might never be), take heart: there’s still a little opportunity to nab one of the handbags created during the designer’s reign.

Big-Bags

Many of you have bemoaned the rise of micro bags since they emerged several seasons ago, and for you, we finally have some good news: the pendulum is starting to swing back toward big bags. During the Fall 2016 shows (and especially in the ultra-influential Paris collections), runway bags kept getting bigger and bigger; usually designers choose petite versions of their accessories for the runway so they don’t overwhelm or obscure the clothes, so the size shift is important.

Bag Battles

Not every piece of fashion gets an official name, but handbags almost always do. Because bags are more consumer-centric than, say, ball gowns, naming a bag helps a design’s fans latch onto it, discuss it amongst themselves (often on our PurseForum) and more easily reference it when shopping in stores or searching online.

Saint-Laurent-Fall-2016-Bag-1

Paris Fashion Week is, arguably, the most important of every season for bag lovers. A huge proportion of the world’s biggest luxury accessories brands hail from France, and the week is filled with bag-heavy shows that help guide the industry forward, one lust-worthy piece of leather at a time.

If you live in Asia or follow Korean skincare, this will be old news to you, so bear with us: sheet masks are great. Even if your beauty routine is decidedly western, you’ve probably come across a silly Facebook photo of a friend wearing one or a brightly colored display of all the new sheet masks suddenly available at Sephora.

Do you ever get worried for the health of people who have to go to all four fashion weeks every season? I do. It’s tiring enough to cover the whole circus from the comfort of my own home; I can’t imagine trying to join it and traipse around the globe for a month.

Winter is starting to ease up in New York City, and it has me looking at everything in my apartment (and especially in my closet) with a critical eye, as it usually does–“spring cleaning” is a real thing.
