I love a good bag collection, and the young Jenner sisters both have quite the extensive closet. I fell hard for Kylie Jenner’s Chanel Iridescent Boy Bag, and since the Kardashian-Jenners star in so many photos from the photo agency we work with, I’m constantly seeing what they’re carrying.

Van Dutch X Prive Porter Birkin Boat

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was a couple weekends ago, and since Fort Lauderdale calls itself the “Yachting Capital of the World,” the best yachts lined the area’s many local waterways for the occasion. Vlad and I love the water, but I am not a huge boat lover; I get easily seasick and end up trying to find my way off the boat.


Model and Beautiful Rich Young Person Gigi Hadid walked in her very first Victoria’s Secret runway show last week, and the week before that, the video of her freaking out upon being offered a spot in her first VS runway show went viral, but this week, we’ve noticed another first for Ms.


Although sales are slowing in the long-booming Asian luxury market, it probably won’t surprise bag lovers to hear that Hermès continues to increase its sales and meet the expectations of industry-watching analysts. It also probably won’t surprise you to hear why; Bloomberg credits the brand’s strength with the Birkin’s perpetual scarcity.


The Hermès Birkin is the most iconic and sought-after handbag in the world (even if you don’t like it, it’d be hard to argue otherwise), and that means most fashion lovers have already absorbed a lot of information about how it was conceived, how it’s made and how hard it is to get one.


Even if you don’t live in one of the few global fashion capitals where going to sample sales is a viable thing to do with your free time, you’ve likely heard plenty of urban legends about wait times, long lines and the aggressions of fellow shoppers.


At the end of July, actress Jane Birkin announced that she wanted the iconic Hermès bag she inspired renamed until the brand improved its treatment of crocodiles. Hermès was quick to address her concerns, and now the brand has announced that she’s withdrawn her request.


Comparing an Hermès bag to that of almost any other brand isn’t fair under normal circumstances; when you do it with a contemporary design that costs less than $500, it’s the sartorial equivalent of bringing a gun to a knife fight.


When I think of fashion brands that embrace technology, Hermès isn’t the first name to come to mind, but the company seems to be looking to change that, at least in a small way. Yesterday, Apple announced that Hermès will make three special leather bands for a new series of its Apple Watch that will also have a unique, Hermès-branded interface.


Hermès is known for, among other things, its use of fine leathers, and it offers more varieties than any other major bag brand on the planet. Figuring out what all the names mean, how those leathers differ and which one might be the best for you can be a daunting task for even those moderately well-versed in the ways of Hermès.
