We’ve talked about Tom Ford bags a bit on PurseBlog, and it seems that our team has mixed feelings. I tend to like the direction of the line, while Amanda thinks that the designs are lacking.
Fill In The Blank
Ladies and gents, I’ve got a major crush on a Prada bag that seems like it makes little sense to add to my collection but I feel like I may dream about it… often. Over the weekend, the annual Governor’s Island Jazz Age Lawn Party took place in NYC, and while I missed out on stopping by, I closely followed images of friends that partook in this 1920s-themed weekend.
No matter the trends of the particular year, spring and summer are always about color. It’s present everywhere in the world around us – flowers, grass, blue skies, creatively colored adult beverages – when the weather turns warm, and for the past year or two, it’s been especially preponderant in the form of python handbags.
First of all, an apology: I’m sorry that I’m assaulting your eyes with this much look so early in the morning, but sometimes them’s the breaks, eh? Consider it like your second alarm of the day – the first one woke up your body, but the Dolce & Gabbana Patchwork Shoulder Bag is here to wake up your senses, for better or for worse. Naturally, the bag makes a perfect candidate for the latest edition of Fill in the Blank. (more…)
Designers took us on a safari with many of their spring 2012 collections. From Donna Karan to Michael Kors, we saw wooden accents, animal prints, and tons of browns and greens. Alexander McQueen took a stab at this trend as well with the Savana Satchel.
Pairing ocelot-print calf hair, brown leather, gold spikes, and earthy hues, the Alexander McQueen Savana Satchel is sure to be an attention-grabber. Whether or not that’s a good thing depends on your own style, of course. Some safari prints are just too much while others are just right. Buy through Net-A-Porter for $2,525. What do you think?

Lions and tigers and stripes, oh my! I can’t help but think of the circus when I look at the Fendi Studded One + One Drawstring-Top Satchel. The pairing of a lot of color and additional texture makes this bag an attention grabber.
Fendi handbags have lost a bit of traction over the years since the heyday of the Fendi Spy, but the brand continues to make a real go at it, and I’m sure that they’ll find that perfect, magic bag again. (The Peekaboo was almost there, but not quite.) This tote in particular is playful in so many ways and practical in very few. With all the multicolor pyramid studs and rainbow stripes on the drawstring-closure canvas top, it is easy to miss the double top handles, thin shoulder stap, and removable crossbody strap. But what works for some doesn’t for others, which is precisely why I am leaving the judgement of this bag in your hands.
