We have a really impressive line-up of handbag selections this week from a much broader variety of labels (and celebrities) than usual. I’m always excited when these roundups aren’t totally dominated by the same three brands as always: Givenchy, Hermès and Chanel.
Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and as we prepare for the Fall 2014 collections cross the Atlantic to roll through Europe for the next three weeks, it’s important to take stock of what happened in Manhattan and what it tells us about where our accessories dollars are headed in the second half of the year.
Diane Kruger was recently spotted doing a little shopping in West Hollywood with the Jason Wu Daphne 2 Snakeskin Satchel. From a distance, that snakeskin pattern looks like a fine tweed, but it is in fact a most unusual spotted, black and white “watersnake” skin, which is a much less expensive alternative to python, and the pricepoint of this bag would certainly indicate as much.
As January draws to a close, so does the traditional luxury sale season, but that won’t stop us from scouring the Internet each Friday for our weekly dose of bag deals. This week, we searched the best sales that are still ongoing and found some treasures, from calf hair, to exotics, to the perfect Marchesa spring wedding clutch for 60% off.
