For Spring 2011, we see Diane von Furstenberg emphasizing much more on her bags and accessories line, which we welcome very much. We see many new bags, as well as some old ones with new features. The popular Stephanie relies now on much lighter leather, making it much more wearable than the previous interation (which was a bit of a weighty pig, if I may say so). While the Harper gets the suede treatment, DvF brings back old print patterns from the mid-70s for fun vintage accessories.

Enjoy a look at the current DvF offerings for Spring, soon we will be looking at some of our favorites in greater detail. Click to view the gallery!

Earlier this week we popped into the Diane von Furstenberg showroom to see all of the amazing accessories arriving soon (we have a huge spring look for you all coming tomorrow). DvF continues to nudge her way into the competitive handbag market effortlessly, bringing fresh designs that are grabbing attention. (more…)

Today Vlad and I had a business lunch at Fred’s which is on the top floor of Barneys NY (their chicken soup is absolutely amazing, New York Mag was right in voting it the best in the City).

Anyhow, we wandered down to the bottom floor to check out Le Labo, a store that specializes in freshly handmade fragrances composed by some of the world’s best perfumers. I opted to buy a candle and decided my Chanel Classic Flap needed a photo op while our candle was getting customized.

You can never go wrong with a Chanel bag, isn’t that the truth?

Guess the popular French street style blogger! I spotted her during Fashion Week NYC with her vibrantly red Hermes Kelly over her shoulder and her camera strapped around her neck.

Edit: It is indeed Ms. Garance Dore.
