I have a friend who brings her Prada bag to the beach. She’s a sensible girl at heart, and her attitude about her bag is that it’s hers, it’s saffiano and it should be able to put up with a little sand every now and then.
Here’s Anne Hathaway filming The Intern in Manhattan, and that is indeed Robert DeNiro in a couple of these shots. Anne, or her character, in this case, is carrying a natural leather Céline Classic Box Bag. In a shocking twist, the intern in question is actually Robert DeNiro, and not Anne Hathaway.
It’s not that men have more functional needs that women (not by a long shot); often, it’s that they prioritize them far above aesthetics, because that’s what they’ve been socialized to do, and that’s why their bags are designed differently. The Rag & Bone Canvas Herringbone Messenger Bag is all substance, with just enough style to finish it off.
It’s Friday again, PurseForum Roundup readers! We hope you are having a wonderful summer, because folks over at the PurseForum sure are, and we found plenty of evidence this week of fun, shopping and so much more. Our members have been re-decorating, buying hot new colorful bags from Kate Spade, talking Television and Cinema, and so much more.
Over on TalkShoes, we are firm believers that behind every shoe (or most shoes), there’s a story to tell, and we want to hear about your worst shoe experience. Also check out our editors’ fall shoe wish lists, and who knows, maybe these shoes will be on your wish list as well! We also ventured into the Many Shoes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and we’re ready to swap shoe closets with her whenever she likes. Can you imagine enduring a shopping day in a pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps? Well, that seems to be the way Khloe Kardashian rolls, and she looks totally fab! (The best part: this exact pair of So Kates aren’t sold out!)
In handbags, just like in soccer, there are certain superpowers who rarely face defeat. Just like Germany has steamrolled its way into Sunday’s final of the actual World Cup (our sincere condolences to Brazil), the Chanel Boy Bag, whose allegiance we had attributed to Germany because of Karl Lagerfeld’s birthplace, has risen to the top of the 2014 PurseBlog Handbag World Cup. If you recall, Chanel was also claimed victory in our 2014 March Madness bracket. Both were voted on only by you, our readers, so it’s quickly become apparent that there’s an ardent army of Chanel-lovers in our midst.
Here’s a blue-haired Nicole Richie, making the press rounds in NYC for her new reality show Candidly Nicole. (Yes, Nicole Richie is returning to reality television, for reasons I don’t completely understand.) She’s carrying the largest size of the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote, which is definitely its most Birkin-esque variation.
