TalkShoes Notice 10_2 On TalkShoes this week, we rounded up the 34 best shoes from the Spring 2016 runways of Milan Fashion Week. Trust us, you’ll be marking your calendars for the arrival of these designs in stores. (We’re looking at you Charlotte Olympia, Fendi, and Prada.) Celebs must have been in a Christian Louboutin state of mind, because we spotted two of them rocking the infamous red bottoms this week. First, Kate Mara wore a gorgeous pair of So Kate ombré pumps to the premiere of her new movie The Martian. We also spotted Priyanka Chopra wearing an ultra-luxe pair of exotic red bottoms that you won’t be able to take your eyes off of!


If you’ve followed along with Chloé over the past few seasons (and who hasn’t?), the bags from the brand’s Spring 2016 runway won’t be of particular surprise to you. They were all small and attached to long straps, and many were finished with a few tassels.


If you’ve ever watched The Mindy Project, you know that main character Mindy Lahiri loves her a good Chanel bag and frequently carries them on the show, and as it turns out, the same is true of her creator, actress and writer Mindy Kaling.


We’ve got some super exciting things coming up for you guys next week (spoiler alert: National Handbag Day is October 10!), but first, we have to make it through one more Friday before the weekend. As is customary, we’re starting this one off with the 15 best marked-down designer bags on the Internet, and all are available for your shopping pleasure below.

The temperature in NYC is going to dip into the 50s this weekend, and as a friend reminded me yesterday, that means it’s time to yank all the fancy scented candles out of the closet. I’ve got one more left in my hoard of my favorite now-discontinued Jo Malone scent, but once it’s gone, it’ll be time to move on to another fragrance.


Jeremy Scott may not be your favorite designer (or maybe he is), but the man is a shrewd marketer. Since arriving at the helm of Moschino, he’s turned the brand into an attention vacuum with seemingly random design inspiration and clothes clearly meant to be discussed on social media.


Paris Fashion Week has already started, but thankfully, all of the shows with the best bags come later in the schedule, which gives us a little bit of much-needed time to catch our breath before the last week of the seasonal shows.


Dueling Fashion Weeks should always make for some fantastic celeb handbag voyeurism, and Milan and Paris are definitely delivering. (BTW, have you seen the latest runway offerings from Bottega Veneta, Prada, Fendi and Gucci?

Dior Stripe Tote Bag

I was talking with a friend last night about when she used to be a personal shopper and bought a bunch of bags for people in the “it bag” heyday. Those days have left us now, and the most recent bag or designer that could be considered anything close to an “it bag” is Mansur Gavriel.

Gucci-Spring-2016_2 Milan Fashion Week has come to a close (a post on the best shoes from MFW is forthcoming) and some of the most noteworthy shoes were from Gucci! These weren’t your average Gucci shoes; get ready to see a lot of bold, playful styles; a new direction the brand seems to be moving toward. Press appearances are so much easier when wearing great shoes, or at least these celebs think so: First, we spotted Selena Gomez wearing a pair of Casadeis to promote her film Transylvania 2, and then Kerry Washington wore a pair of show-stopping Paul Andrew pumps for her appearance on Good Morning America.
