In July, Goyard announced one of its new bags would be a reversible bag named the Goyard Anjou Tote. One of the most popular Goyard bags is its St. Louis Tote, which is a staple for the brand and the accessory world.
Goyard is one of few brands that has both a long, storied history and a sense of mystery about it. Until recently, the only place to purchase Goyard in New York City was at small boutiques in Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman, but the brand has a long history with NYC.
Last week, Chavie Lieber of Racked interviewed me for an in-depth look at the cult of Goyard. It’s a brand unlike any other we cover; even Hermès, in all of its tradition and conservatism, still debuts seasonal collections at Paris Fashion Week, sells a portion of its product line on its website and has boutiques in all the world’s major luxury markets.
Chelsea Handler was recently spotted carrying a Goyard St. Louis Tote through LAX after returning from a trip to New York. The versatile St. Louis Tote is becoming an increasingly popular choice for celeb travel. It seems to make an ideal carry-on, but we’ve also seen other, more sizable Goyard bags used as beach bags, baby bags and shopping totes.
This is the second time we’ve spotted Tamara Ecclestone with this well-dressed, well-bagged man friend – here they are arriving together at LAX. According to The Daily Mail, this is Scott Harvey-Nicholls, Tamara’s close personal chum and “brand manager”.
I know, I know. From the title of this post, I know what you must be thinking. Oh joy, another Kardashian-inspired post! (Apply either a sarcastic or gleeful tone, whichever you feel is correct.) The Kardashian sisters are in Miami filming yet another season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, and earlier in this week, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian spent a glamorous day at the beach. Well, maybe “glamorous” isn’t the correct word – their presence brought out both a huge paparazzi mob and lots of rubber-neckers. So maybe for them, it was just another typical day at the beach.
Kim was spotted wearing a white one-piece Michael Kors swimsuit, a somewhat out-of-the-ordinary wardrobe choice for her killer curves, while sister Kourtney was dressed, oddly, like a totally normal person. Wearing rainbow-stripped shorts and a plain V-neck tee, her most glamourous accessory was her yellow Goyard St. Louis bag. (more…)
I’ve always been a fan of Mary Kate and Ashley. As a child, when I wasn’t reading you could find me plopped in front of The Adventures of Mary Kate & Ashley or You’re Invited to Mary Kate & Ashley’s; (my favorite was the Mall Party). Now, I respect them more for their uniquely personal style and impact on the fashion world. Combine that with the fact that my favorite handbag and luggage design house is Goyard, and I literally jumped for joy. Well, not really, but I was exceedingly pleased.
Here, Ashley Olsen is carrying the Goyard Boeing Travel Satchel. I’m sure many of you readers have been curious about the world of Goyard, as the brand doesn’t advertise and is sold in few places around the globe. To those people and those to whom I’m introducing this brand: Goyard is very special. I’m conjecturing that Ashley, with her strong involvement in fashion, knows why these bags are such a hidden secret. (more…)
