Remember the humble Rockstud? It hasn’t really gone anywhere, but it’s been a spell since we’ve seen celebs demonstrate the kind of affection for Valentino’s signature stud that we saw them demonstrate last week. The popular Valentino My Rockstud Tote seemed like an indication that the brand was moving in a more minimal direction, possibly towards a less Rockstudded future, but we doubt that’s happening any time soon.
For those not in the know, Chiara Ferragni is an Italian fashion blogger (The Blonde Salad), author, street style darling and fashion designer with her own line of footwear that we happen to love. In typical fashion blogger…fashion, she also models a bit and lends her fashion cred to other brands when the opportunity is right.
Celebs are over the moon for totes, and they’re carrying everything from ye olde favorites (I mean the Céline Luggage Tote, of course), to gargantuan Hermès bags that threaten to engulf their carriers, to svelte Michael Kors totes that are actually a riff on a Michael Kors style that was immensely popular circa 2014.
Celebs didn’t stray far from their favorite brands last week, with the notable exception of Taylor Swift, who carried a bag from an Italian designer who I don’t believe we’ve ever seen her carry before. (Her most recent edition of Many Bags will back me up on that.) In color trend news, ladies love pink.
While there is usually a bit of overlap between NYFW, LFW, MFW and PFW, this year event organizers were careful mostly not to step on anyone’s toes. (With the exception of Paris of course, because Paris.) New York, London, and Milan are happening in quick succession, with no more than a day of space between all three.
It’s late February, so of course that means it’s time for Los Angeles celebrities to bust out the barely-there denim. It’s basically a seasonal rite of passage. I jest, of course–this seems a tad early for short shorts, even by LA standards, but that’s certainly this week’s most notable trend, right behind giant black designer totes.
