Last April, I wrote about my feeling that Chloé had lost its groove. When it-bags were all the rage, Chloé was leading the pack with its Paddington bag; I bought two of them, which I still own. But over the years, Chloé struggled to keep its handbags in the limelight, and as a handbag lover, I found myself rarely looking to see what the brand released.
As you might have noticed, we didn’t exactly flood the site the New York Fashion Week coverage last week. That wasn’t an oversight; we’ve found that, over the years, you guys really only care about seeing the great bag collections that go down the global runways, as well as the great bags that pop up outside.

Price: $1,550 via Neiman Marcus
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Just when you thought mini bags reached their peak, Fendi decided to micro size already tiny bags and I can’t get enough. Sure the bag doesn’t fit much, but many are using these micro bags as charms or evening bags.

We also checked out Malone Souliers’ Spring 2015 collection, in which you’ll find vivid shoes and lots of modern mules. With the rising popularity of fashion sneakers, we picked our favorite Nikes that you can even wear after the gym.

If you’ve been following the general flow of New York Fashion Week coverage, you’ve probably picked up on the major 70s thread that’s running through the lion’s share of the notable (and not-so-notable) New York collections. That aesthetic definitely held true at Tory Burch, and especially for the bags.
We’ve made it to yet another Friday, and if it’s as cold where you are as it is where we are, we’re hoping that you don’t have to leave your house or office for the foreseeable future. If you’re looking for indoor activities to occupy you until approximately late March, we’d like to suggest you shop our latest crop of bag deals. Read More…
Celebrity fashion continues to drive home the fact that LA and NYC are polar (vortex) opposites, but the bag picks of half-frozen supermodels and bare-armed actresses on both coasts are always choice, even when the weather is less than idyllic. In related news, the Givenchy Mini Pandora has emerged as this week’s “bag for all seasons.”
