What is it that Chrissy Teigen gets so right that other celebs get so wrong? She’s everywhere, but not in an annoying way. She seems generally more upbeat and happy than many dour-faced celebs that cross paths with the paparazzi.
Even if you weren’t aware of her in the past, you’ve probably heard a lot about Zendaya in the past year. The teenage singer/actor/model/all-around famous person has a quickly rising star in both entertainment and fashion; so much so, in fact, that Beyoncé tapped her to appear with a handful of other up-and-coming black women in the arts in her Lemonade film.
Even for brands that have huge accessories lines dating back decades, there’s usually one bag that stands out above the others in shoppers’ minds. Hermès has the Birkin, Chanel has the Classic Flap, Louis Vuitton has the Speedy; for Proenza Schouler, it’s the PS1 that inspires the most consumer devotion.
Fashion, as an industry, takes itself very seriously. When designers try to have fun, they often lose their footing and go full-on into kitsch that just doesn’t feel very luxurious; designing pieces that feel both playful and expensive is harder than simply going whole-hog into the obvious trappings of high aesthetics.
Prada is hard at work diversifying its handbag selection season after season, proving there’s much more to the brand than Saffiano bags. (Although, if you ask me, those are still some of the best bags out there for long wear and daily use.) We got our hands on the Prada Woven Madras-Pattern Shoulder Bag last week, and I fell for it immediately.
The number of ways to follow any given person or website seemingly always increasing, and while we aren’t the biggest Snapchat fiends, we love to share a look into our world (and, of course, a look at great bags)! This morning, we headed to the Coach Pre Spring 2017 Women’s Preview, and while we’ll share pictures from the event on the site tomorrow, we have your first glimpse on our Snapchat right now. Be sure to follow us on Snapchat at username PurseBlog to check it out!
Chanel is one of the biggest and most sought-after accessories brands in the world, and although its best known for its iconic handbags, those are only part of the story. Each season, Chanel also releases an impressive array of wallets, pouches, almost-handbags and other small leather goods, and Chanel fans go justifiably nuts for them.
