Valentino Spring 2015 Handbags 24

Any brand would be thrilled to have a line with as much success and longevity as the Valentino Rockstud bags and shoes; the styles have been remade in endless variations since they debuted nearly four years ago, and consumer desire for Rockstuds seems to be going nowhere. They’re something of a new classic; traditionally luxurious shapes reimagined with a combination of femininity and grit. What does a brand do to follow up that kind of smash success? Valentino Spring 2015 offers a few clues. Read More…

Anja Rubik Gucci Soho Disco Bag

Polish supermodel Anja Rubik was recently spotted carrying a cute little Gucci Soho Disco Bag while spending some time with her family in Warsaw. If only we could all look this nice (and unharried) after a casual family lunch in the city.

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. As we mentioned earlier today, the fashion community’s thirst for novelty pieces seems almost insatiable right now. Read More…

Amal Alamuddin Stella McCartney Beckett Envelope Clutch

Here’s internationally renowned human rights lawyer (and accidental style maven) Amal Alamuddin, hand in hand with new husband George Clooney (some guy who’s acted in/produced/directed a few movies) in Venice, heading to their civil ceremony. Amal is carrying a tasteful Stella McCartney Beckett Envelope Clutch that perfectly matches her chic wedding pants suit (not something I thought I’d ever hear myself say).

Celine Spring 2015 Handbags 11

Last December, it was reported in the fashion press that Anouck Duranteau-Loeper, Céline’s accessories director for the entirety of Phoebe Philo’s handbag-happy tenure at the brand, would be leaving to take a position at the newly revitalized Paco Rabanne. Based on the publicly available information and Duranteau-Loeper’s LinkedIn profile, it looks as though she has stayed on at Céline in some capacity, but the new gig means that her involvement in the day-to-day creation of the brand’s accessories is likely now significantly limited, or at least significantly different. That might not be such a good thing for the brand’s handbags. Read More…

Chloe Spring 2015 Handbags

That Chloé Spring 2015 has almost convinced me to try out the luxe-bohemian look is as ardent an endorsement of a collection as you’ll ever hear. I’m a black-wearing, combat-boot-loving former punk, but when transformed through Clare Waight Keller’s lens, the haute hippie look seems like the most casually luxurious thing in the world. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the collection also included one very notable new handbag. Read More…

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. The Barbies went for $200 a pop, and they were gone before I got to work in the morning. Read More…

Furla Cortina L Top Handle Bag

Bag: Furla Cortina L Top Handle Bag

Price: $698 via Neiman Marcus

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: As fall descends upon us, it’s important to remember to keep lighter neutrals around among our navys and greys. They’re just as versatile in cold weather as they are any other time of year and add much-needed visual contrast to a darker wardrobe. For three figures, this Furla bag looks like a million bucks.

TS Notice 9_26 Over on TalkShoes, we are making room for animal printed shoes in our closet, because this fall, they just feel perfect. With last week’s Scandal season premiere, it seemed fitting to check out the Many Shoes of Kerry Washington! Another major topic of discussion in our office was our love for pumps; check out which pumps we were dreaming about this week! With the end of Milan Fashion Week, we went back and picked out the 19 most incredible shoes from these Milan collections, and whether we like it or not, it looks like flatforms are here to stay.
