When veritable trend-machine Fendi announced it would be rolling out a la carte embellished shoulder straps with prices exceeding $1,000, the writing was already on the wall; Valentino joined in with its own straps a few months later, and then it was off to the races.

Prada is a brand built on thoroughly modern ideas of femininity and it always has been; Miuccia Prada was thinking about “the modern woman” and her functional needs long before the phrase was the descriptor of choice for every designer under the sun.

Leonardo DiCaprio may have finally gotten a little gold man to take home last night, but we, of course, found our eyes drifting toward what the female nominees, presenters and attendees had in their hands instead.

In Case You Missed It

Even though we spend all day searching out, discussing and dissecting handbags, we realize that most of you have lives and jobs that require you to do other stuff with most of your time. Because we want to make sure you’re aware of the latest in handbag happenings before we sally forth into March, though, we’ve set up a little primer for you on the most important things that happened in February.


As someone who both loves Fendi bags and dislikes ruffles, Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi have me in a bit of a bind for Fall 2016. Ruffles and waves were the entire basis of the collection, from the furs down to the sold-separately bag straps, almost as if a scientist had tipped Karl off a little early on the gravitational waves discovery of a couple weeks ago.

Bag Deals

Just because we’re in the throes of fashion month doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten our beloved Friday bag deals. In fact, just the opposite: fashion shows always put us in the mood to shop. Even though we’re not currently in sale season, we still managed to find over a dozen gorgeous designer bags that would be worth the money at full price, let alone at the steep discounts you’ll see below.

Celebrity Style

I spent much of yesterday looking through archival photos of Gigi Hadid, and I came away with several conclusions, of which this is the most important: it’s not fair that anyone gets to look like Gigi Hadid.
