We love having the opportunity to work with other amazing sites around the interwebs and do it as often as we can. This time, we’re working with an awesome new site called Glossi.com, which mixes …

From the moment it made its debut in Paris six months ago, I’ve been an ardent fan of Chanel Fall 2012. From the raw gemstones and rich velvet to the Boy Chanel bags to the …

Narciso Rodriguez is a man whose clothes are known for their modern angles and respect for the natural contours of the body, so it only makes sense that his first handbags should have that same …

The spectre of Tom Ford still hangs heavily over Gucci, all these years after he left the label and well into the era of Frida Giannini’s success at the Italian house’s helm. Giannini’s brought with …

We all knew these bags were coming, and now they’re here in all their crazypants glory. Prada Fall 2012‘s handbags are just as embellished and detailed as they were on the brand’s Milan runway, as …

I feel fairly confident saying that Chanel releases more distinct accessories collection every year than any other major designer in the world. Not only does Chanel do cruise, spring, pre-fall and fall, but it also …

Sometimes designers’ motivations behind the images they choose to represent their brands can be impenetrably opaque, but other times, the general idea is pretty obvious. Everyone understood immediately where Prada’s 1950s-car-culture-inspired Spring 2012 collection came from, for example, and the motivations behind the runway show and campaign for Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 are equally clear.

Even so, a behind-the-scenes peek is always fun, particularly when it’s narrated by Marc Jacobs and contains lots of close-up looks at the accessories and clothes from a collection that was rife with texture and variation. The one thing I don’t understand about the video, though, is when Jacobs said that the collection had a lightness to it. To me, long wool and leather topcoats, giant hats and two to four bags per model is anything but light, even if that’s not exactly a criticism. Check out the video, straight from Louis Vuitton, above.

It’s that time of year again: time for ad campaigns! Twice a year, brands roll out images meant to sell their ideas of their collections to the public, and because handbags and accessories are so …

Most brands have Pre-Fall, which debuts in stores during the historically fashion-barren summer months, followed by the full Fall collection, which hits at the end of summer and features a more robust and often more …

I know, I know. It’s hard to separate the old image of Victoria Beckham, the Spice Girl and soccer WAG who used to permanently occupy the worst dressed list, from the New, Improved Victoria Beckham …

Season after season, I’m never more curious about what a brand’s runway bags will look like than I am about Chanel. Sometimes Karl Lagerfeld goes wearable and sometimes he goes out-of-control, but usually, the catwalk …

I’m betting that you all remember the agony and the ecstasy that resulted from The Row releasing a $33,000 alligator backpack as part of its Spring 2012 collection. Some people gushed over it and media …
