Yesterday, Coach celebrated 75 years of craftsmanship with its first-ever runway show in NYC. It felt only right that Coach, a brand that has a close relationship with NYC’s High Line, built a custom venue on top of the elevated park.
Last night we had the pleasure of attending Mansur Gavriel‘s first-ever New York Fashion Week presentation, and the expansion that the brand unveiled was befitting of the venue. Not only were four new bags shapes to accompany the brand’s beloved bucket bags and totes, but there were new colors, materials and a whole bunch of shoes.
We’re still in the thick of New York Fashion Week, which, as you well know by now, is often more interesting outside the shows than inside them. Vlad is documenting the best handbag looks he sees on show attendees every day, but handbags find themselves front-and-center in lots of general street style photos, too.
During New York Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to attend accessory designer Khirma Eliazov‘s Fall 2015 presentation. Eliazov’s handbag line, Khirma New York, specializes in exotic skins, including python, crocodile and water snake. Walking into the showroom, I was overwhelmed (in the best way possible, of course) by this alluring collection.
Paris Fashion Week is always such a pleasure. The clothes, shoes, accessories and beauty looks on display always eclipse nearly everything that came before them during the first three weeks of fashion month; there’s just something about Paris and what it brings out in the creative minds that inhabit it.
