Celebrity-Designer-Handbags-February-26

London Fashion Week is upon us, and this week it happened to overlap with the Oscars, which meant that LFW was an A-list actor-free zone during the first few days. London’s best “it” girls, pop singers, and modeling legends still turned out in force, of course.

Want-It-Wednesday-Novelty-Bags

The current handbag market has two dominant extremes: minimalist day bags and maximalist novelty clutches and mini bags. Today, we’ve decided to explore the latter end in this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday, and it’s more familiar territory for some of us than others.

Saint-Laurent-Monogramma-Suede-Mini-Shoulder-Bag

When I was first getting into designer bags in the early 2000s, designer bags were all the rage. All the most successful brands had monogram prints, and more often than not, their most popular bags were made out of those logo textiles.

I try not to be overly negative about any fashion piece; I know that my taste is not for everyone, and the same can be said for anyone else’s. I appreciate the chances that designers take, and when I’m being more critical, it’s typically over the price and quality.

Moschino-Pre-Fall-2015-Handbags-6

If you thought that perhaps Jeremy Scott and Moschino had found some chill in the time since we last checked in, I have some bad news for you. Moschino recently released its Pre-Fall 2015 lookbook, and the bags (and clothes) are as fiercely literal as ever.

Along with holiday parties comes an opportunity to quirk up our outfits with holiday clutches and festive statement pieces. That’s why we took to Instagram this week to find some seriously good bag inspiration. So while these tiny bags may not be able to hold your everyday essentials, it may be worth it to leave your giant wallet at home to carry one of these statement-making bags.

The fashion industry has hosted a logo renaissance over the past few season, with brands like Alexander Wang and DKNY plastering their logos all over clothes, much to the pleasure of streetwear-obsessed fashion customers. When it comes to accessories, though, the trend has been a bit different.

Bag Deals November 7

Another Friday has come to pass, and that means it’s time for a new crop of fresh bag deals. This is a big weekend for discounts, so we’ll have more information about all the different sale opportunities later in the day.

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2014 Celebrity Handbags

This year, London Fashion Week got compressed down to nearly nothing and we found ourselves looking down the barrel of the Milan Fashion Week collections before we even knew what hit us. Ultimately, though, that’s okay–MFW brought out tons of fashion industry insiders, basically all of whom were carrying pretty bags at which to gawk.

Moschino Medium Biker Shoulder Bag

As any of us could have easily predicted, Jeremy Scott did not follow up his McDonald’s-inspired debut collection at Moschino with Jil Sander-style minimalism. Instead, Scott doubled down on his love of crass consumerism, churning out a collection of Barbie-inspired clothes and accessories in shades of bubblegum that Katy Perry is probably trying to wriggle into as we speak, and you can shop some of the bags right now.
