Celebrity-Designer-Bags-February-19

Celebrity fashion continues to drive home the fact that LA and NYC are polar (vortex) opposites, but the bag picks of half-frozen supermodels and bare-armed actresses on both coasts are always choice, even when the weather is less than idyllic. In related news, the Givenchy Mini Pandora has emerged as this week’s “bag for all seasons.”

A few weeks ago, I started to notice bags with hearts on them popping up here and there. At first, I assumed it was something of a timely gimmick; after all, Valentine’s Day is Saturday and some designers just can’t resist a theme, especially if it’s based on a holiday in which gifts are often given.

Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour has quietly-yet-deliberately infiltrated the hearts and minds of celebrities over the past year. It’s not that the bag itself is remarkable; it’s really not, which may be part of the appeal. It’s sort of an anti-“it” bag–classically styled and fairly inconspicuous, with minimal branding.

Christian Louboutin Passage Shopping_1

Red soles may be Christian Louboutin‘s signature, but he’s also making quite the impression in the world of handbags. We are already familiar with the brand’s spiked clutches and the Sweet Charity Shoulder Bag, and the newest addition to the Louboutin handbag family is the line of Passage bags.

It’s been a grey, cold, wet, icy, treacherous few days in New York City. The sun has finally come out today, though, and temperatures have risen enough to melt much of the ice, so we’re feeling a little bit bright and cheery today.

Apparently, all of the LA celebrities who opted not to make the trek to the Sundance Film Festival or Paris Couture last week decided to go shopping. I suspect there are far fewer crowds (of celebs) to wade through in Beverly Hills when these two events overlap.

Louboutin Pigalle TS Testimonial_9

When I think of Christian Louboutin‘s sexy aesthetic, the iconic Pigalle pump comes immediately to mind. This pump is arguably the brand’s most recognizable design, and Fall 2014 marked the Pigalle’s ten year anniversary. For a shoe to enjoy a decade of popularity in the wild world of footwear is no small feat.

Bag-Deals-January-30

As you may have noticed, online sales are shutting down left and right. Net-a-Porter’s semi-annual sale ended earlier this week, SSENSE’s ended not long ago and the Barney’s sale is in its last days. That means it’s more important than ever to search hard when looking for the best bag deals for our weekly roundup, but, as we do every Friday, we rose to the occasion.
