After reviewing Pre-Fall 2016’s perfect bag and shoe pairs, it was clear that heavily detailed accessories are having a major moment for Fall 2016. We already took a close look at Christian Louboutin’s embellished Fall 2016 accessories, and now we are turning our attention to the latest crop of ornate footwear.
Every season (and usually at least once between each season), Chanel releases a brand new array of products, the scope of which is matched by very few other luxury brands. Not only are there handbags (and you should definitely check out Chanel’s brand new Pre-Collection Fall 2016 handbags), but there are wallets and pouches and coin purses, as well as pieces that fall somewhere in the murky middle between bags and wallets.
Even though we are, of course, big proponents of buying a brand new bag, sometimes you don’t need a brand new bag. Maybe the budget doesn’t allow for one, maybe you just got a great deal at the recent seasonal sales and you’re set for a while, maybe you just don’t have the itch right now–whatever the reason, it happens to all of us sometimes.
Last week celebs partied down with politics, and Gigi Hadid managed to stay one step ahead of us with her handbag choices. Also, Margot Robbie has finally begun her super stylish press tour for Suicide Squad, and we expect our photo service to be pretty generous with her pictures for the foreseeable future.
Somehow it’s going to be August by the time we see you again on Monday, which seems impossible until you remember that summer always flies by as New Yorkers hurtle straight back to the inevitable winter that it feels like just ended.
We’ve come once again to Friday morning, and that means it’s time once again for an installment of our weekly roundup of bag deals. Retailers have mostly moved on from sale season (except Nordstrom, whose beloved Anniversary Sale is still going strong), but that just means the prices we’ll see in sale sections are as low as they’ll be all season.
This is one of those posts that’s hard to know where to begin. What I’m about to delve into is long and personal, with details that may make some of you wonder why I chose to share so much, but people close to me know how open I am.
