We are huge Chanel lovers around these parts, and if you visit our site you know this fact very well. The Classic Flap is the ultimate timeless bag and Chanel continuously creates different varieties of the design to please its massive fanbase.
For the Spring 2013 pre-collection, Chanel is taking a cue from the 70s with a white and pink Chanel Tie Dye Effect Classic Flap.
Everyone I know has been enjoying watching the Olympic Games. My twitter feed, which is typically filled with fashion world updates, has been non-stop overflowing with tweets about the different countries and their respective Olympians and I’m so happy to see it. Olympic Spirit binds us all in a special way.
Many of our favorite designers have jumped on the bandwagon as well, showing their spirit and support for their home countries.
Over the weekend, model Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she had bought herself a bag that she normally wouldn’t spend money on, but this time she did, because YOLO. (If you’re unfamiliar, the phrase YOLO comes from an annoying Drake song and stands for “you only live once.”) She then posted the above picture of the bag, a bead-and-fur-covered version of the Fendi Daisy Clutch.
Phoebe Philo is a force to be reckoned with in the accessories world. Philo was at Chloe when the brand was driving the world crazy with the omnipresent Paddington and Silverado bags, and now she’s at Celine, making fashion people everywhere lose their minds over Luggage Totes, Classic Box Bags and Trapeze Satchels. She may not design the bags herself, but Philo has a way of bringing out the best in her accessories staff and capturing the attention of bag lovers everywhere.
I’ve talked in the past about some of the things I dislike (and some of the unfortunate patterns I’ve noticed) when shopping in high-end department stores and boutiques, and whenever I share one of those stories, you guys respond in kind – it seems as though we’ve all experienced genuinely rude (and sometimes downright demeaning) treatment while trying to do something as simple as buy a bag or a pair of shoes.
There is such a drastic love-hate relationship when it comes to our readers and Kim Kardashian. In fact, it is more of a love-to-hate relationship. So many people find how she conducts herself appalling, but they are still glued to their TVs watching her shows and picking up the latest gossip mags about the demise of her marriage and her jean size.
I was talking to my friend Tanya the other day about her next handbag purchase, and the subject of patent vs. regular leather came up. Patent’s having a huge moment right now, with everyone from 3.1 Phillip Lim to Chloe remaking some of their most successful designs in the stiff, glossy material, but the look isn’t for everyone or every design, no matter how hard brands try to make us think it is.
I have absolutely positively no qualms in declaring my never-ending love for Proenza Schouler. The schoolgirl bags with their downtown vibe have yet to lose traction in the accessory world. With new materials, patterns and colors constantly being released on the many versions of the beloved PS1, there an option for everyone.
I rounded up four new Proenza Schouler bags that feature different prints and materials to see which one you’d like the best.
