Best Burgundy Bags for Fall 2014

Fall is upon us, and we love covering the seasonal trends as we see them arise. Amanda already shared 20 burgundy bags to start your fall wardrobe, and today I’m revisiting the subject.

Burgundy bags can be found in almost every designer’s handbag selection for fall, and it doesn’t take much wondering to figure out why.

Chanel Alligator Boy Bag

Chanel’s Fall 2014 show, set in an ultra-luxury supermarket constructed inside the Grand Palais in Paris, was perhaps the biggest spectacle ever for a brand that loves a spectacle. With bags styled like packaged steaks inside of stuff chain grocery baskets, it was easy to get lost in the absurdist tableau and miss the fact that, among the novelty, there were plenty of wearable, covetable bags and accessories to be found.

Now that the bags have arrived in Chanel boutiques and are available for perusal on Chanel’s website, it’s a lot easier to find the signal among the noise. On their own, almost all of the bags feel light and luxurious, and they’re just irreverent enough to both feel current and have staying power. Check out the new bags, complete with pricing info, below.

Marc Jacobs Surplus Plus Alligator Bags

Runway shows are only half the story; you don’t get the full picture of what a designer has planned for a season until the lookbooks and price lists come out, and thanks to Moda Operandi, a lot more of that information is now made public in a timely manner than ever before. As our friends over at Racked noted earlier this week, Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2015 trunk show includes three very notable bags that all ring in at a cool 40 grand. Read More…

Kacey Musgraves Chanel Boy Bag

Here’s country music starlet Kacey Musgraves, signing autographs outside BBC Radio in London. Kacey is wearing a Chanel Boy Bag from the Dallas-inspired 2014 Metiers d’Art collection, which is pretty much a perfect choice for a young, successful country star; hand-tooled leather is particularly popular with the country-western set.

TS Notice 9_17New York Fashion Week may be over, but at TalkShoes, we’re still thinking back to all of the best shoes we saw on the runway! As for our celebrity shoe spotting at Fashion Week, it’s only fitting that Sarah Jessica Parker wore a pair of her SJP Fawn pumps to her only NYFW appearance. Also, we started our week on a comfortable foot, and nothing says comfort like these Givenchy Slip-On Sneakers. Lastly, we finally got our hands on a pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps and we’re filling you in on everything you need to know before you buy a pair of your own!

Want It Wednesday Calf Hair

After a sabbatical to allow for vacation and New York Fashion Week, Want It Wednesday makes its triumphant return to Wednesday afternoon with tons of my favorite fall texture: calf hair. Bags, shoes, even clothes–calf hair lends itself to both vibrancy and richness, which gives the colors and prints that are used with it a depth that few other materials can attain. Check out the team’s slightly furry picks below. Read More…

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.

Mulberry Spring 2015 Bags 3

Mulberry’s various and sundry corporate challenges are well-documented and yet to be resolved, but London Fashion Week waits for no brand. For Spring 2015, the brand soldiered forth in a more subtle way than it has in recent years. Instead of a big production with global It Girl and brand ambassador Cara Delevingne, Mulberry put on a subtle presentation full of the kinds of pieces that made people Mulberry fans in the first place.
