The title of this bag alone is quite the mouthful, and it’s only fitting that the design is, too. Dolce & Gabbana’s collection focused on family this season, and it played into everything, from the designs themselves to the runway show and ad campaign.

It’s been de rigueur for young, edgy, look-at-me designers to make handbags out of stuffed animals for several years now. Some veer toward the cute (Mandy Coon and her bunny rabbit), some veer toward the strange (Giles Deacon and his triceratops), and now the Christopher Raeburn Quilted Water Rat Shoulder Bag takes a turn for the decidedly, purposefully grotesque.
I love it when jewelry brands get into the handbag business. They bring with them a sense of embellishment and attention to detail (especially hardware) that often makes it immediately apparent that the brand started out in a more blinged-out section of the fashion business, and that’s definitely true of the Shourouk Crystal-Embellished PVC Clutch.
With anticipation for the film version of The Great Gatsby reaching a fever pitch, fashion people are talking about the movies even more than usual. Miuccia Prada personally oversaw the gorgeous 1920s-era wardrobing for the film, and based on the trailers, it’s indeed full of deco gorgeousness the likes of which hasn’t been seen since…well, since the Gatsby era.
