Also, New Yorkers love a good pair of flats and the TalkShoes team picked our favorites. The Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals has been one of the most talked-about shoes of the season and we have an exclusive review, complete with photos!

Karlie Kloss Jason Wu Jourdan Tote

Here’s supermodel Karlie Kloss, running errands in NYC and doing a quick pop-in at Taylor Swift’s Tribeca apartment, all while carrying a black Jason Wu Jourdan Tote. Karlie is among Wu’s favorite models, so it’s no surprise to see her toting one of the designer’s most popular bags.

Americas Biggest Closet Robbed

Ralph Lauren Soft Ricky Alligator Blue

Fashion is a complicated topic, for sure. It sits at the intersection of art and commerce, of high and low culture, of aesthetic and functional design.

Handbag Trend Forecasting

Applying algorithmic logic to fashion is tricky at best; Google itself has failed publicly at predicting what stylish shoppers might like to buy, and a recent report from trendcasting duo Credit Suisse and NetBase makes me think they might not have quite figured it out either. According to them, Hermès is the brand with the worst online momentum for its handbags, and Ralph Lauren is the leader of the pack. Huh? Read More…
