Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I am thrilled! Not only am I a sucker for a day devoted to telling those close to you that you love them, but also my anniversary is a week later. February really is a month filled with love. One of our favorite designers, Tory Burch, teamed up with renowned artist Leanne Shapton to design an exclusive collection of items for Valentine’s Day.

Since I’ve been looking at the Fall/Winter handbag landing page at Net-a-Porter every day for months, I thought it was kind of a big deal when they suddenly changed all of the bags in it in the past few days. Perhaps this is only interesting to me since I’m constantly staring at it, but I thought you guys might like to see what’s ahead for the new season at NAP as well.
It’s here, it’s here! YAAAAY! The Fendi Peekaboo Bicolor Top Handle is here!
We first saw this bag as a highlight of Fendi’s Spring 2010 runway show in Milan, and now it’s finally available for purchase. The gears of fashion grind slowly at times, but it’s always exciting to see things land at retail that you first noticed during their initial public appearance.
We had a fairly lively debate a few months ago when the Jimmy Choo for H&M collaboration was announced, and now we’ve finally got a comprehensive look at what the partnership will yield when it hits store shelves November 14.
The collection includes shoes, boots, handbags, jewelry, and a few items of clothing, all done in the slightly 80s glam-punk look that Jimmy Choo has been fond of lately.
In the past few days the internet is a buzz about the latest must have nail polish, Chanel Jade Nail Polish. This polish was seen on the runway months ago and the speculation began if that color would be produced. It has been and is being sold online at Chanel now (better get it while you can).
The color Jade falls into the jewel hued family, but when we see jewel toned bags it is typically reds and purples and deep greens.
If only all of our parents owned awesome, exotic bag lines for us to work at when we graduate college; we should all be so lucky. But we’re not Kate Falchi, daughter of PurseBlog friend Carlos Falchi, who has just joined her father’s eponymous bag line and has begun collaborating with him full-time. A good gig if you can get it, right?
Marchesa has realized what most fashion watchers already know: handbags are one of the most profitable categories of products that a brand can make. They don’t take the sizing and fit of a dress, they’re seen as useful and more worthy of expenditure by consumers, and they can be sold in a larger variety of stores than a ball gown. They provide an introduction to the brand for new customers and increase awareness and familiarity among potential clients.
The next big bag for the fall is the YSL Roady. A chic hobo shape, this YSL bag has already been spotted on the likes of Mary Kate Olsen, Rachel Bilson, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Kylie Minogue. Will you be one of the next sporting this trendy yet timeless hobo?
Can we talk about the Givenchy Maxi Nightingale Tote for a second? We get the chance to look through dozens of pictures of celebrities every day in order to create BagThatStyle, and in the last two weeks, this lovely bag has shown up more with more celebs than any other bag that I can recall since we started the site.
