Alexander Wang Sneaker Bags

Today in Things I Didn’t Expect: Alexander Wang offered a very limited pre-order of his very literal, sneaker-inspired Spring 2015 runway bags on his website yesterday, and the three bags, all priced in the mid-$1,000 range, were sold out and completely gone from the site within a matter of hours.

Karl Lagerfeld Barbie

In case you were wondering how deep fashion people’s capacity for purchasing branded novelties is, yesterday morning’s quick sell-through of a thousand Karl Lagerfeld-designed and -branded Barbies at Net-a-Porter should tell you all you need to know, thanks to a little digging by Tyler McCall at Fashionista.

Karl Lagerfeld Choupette Bags 2

If you’re not a cat lover, these are hard times for you. First Charlotte Olympia sold a pair of cat-embroidered flats to basically everyone in the fashion industry, then Taylor Swift started toting around her cat, Olivia Benson, on her arm.

Moschino Medium Biker Shoulder Bag

As any of us could have easily predicted, Jeremy Scott did not follow up his McDonald’s-inspired debut collection at Moschino with Jil Sander-style minimalism. Instead, Scott doubled down on his love of crass consumerism, churning out a collection of Barbie-inspired clothes and accessories in shades of bubblegum that Katy Perry is probably trying to wriggle into as we speak, and you can shop some of the bags right now.

Anya Hindmarch Fixation Leather Stickers

Many of you loved Anya Hindmarch’s fun, ultra-embellished Spring 2015 bags, but opinions were mixed over whether you could justify the expense for something with such a specific look. If you’re on the fence, Hindmarch has found a way to extend the look to you, too–leather stickers of some of the motifs are now available at Net-a-Porter, which means you can add them to any of your bags or small accessories.

Anya Hindmarch Spring 2015 Handbags 16

It’s early in the season and none of the handbag heavyweights from Milan and Paris have shown us what they’ve got quiet yet, but I’m here to make a bold prediction: Nothing that we see on the coming runways will be as fun as Anya Hindmarch’s Spring 2015 bags, and I’d be surprised if any of them manage to be more compelling.

Salvatore Ferragamo Handbag Cake

There is only one acceptable way to celebrate an occasion in corporate America: cake in the conference room. Because Yahoo! Style is both fancier and flush with appreciably more dollars than the average American company, not only did employees probably get their requisite celebration, but the new vertical put cake front-and-center on its homepage, in the form of handbags.

Kate Spade Hello Tokyo Bags

It seems as though, with every passing season, extremely literal accessories become more and more popular among luxury customers. If you’ve got Charlotte Olympia tastes on a contemporary budget (or if you just don’t want to shell out huge bucks for a piece that’s more novelty than wardrobe-staple), you’ll want to check out the Kate Spade Hello Tokyo line, new for Fall 2014, which finds its inspiration exactly where you’d expect.

Moschino Handbag Hoodie

In the world of Jeremy Scott’s Moschino, nothing is ever what it actually is. That motorcycle jacket? It’s a handbag, or maybe a backpack. Those red and yellow arches are not actually a McDonald’s advertisement. That bag that looks like a Chanel suit and has the handles of a Chanel handbag?

Alice and Olivia Stuffed Animal Bear Bag

“Weird” is having a big month so far. Fall deliveries have given us such a bumper crop of oddball bags that we went ahead and picked our favorite dozen last week, and then Coach put some giant animal heads in its latest in-store campaign.
