It has a lot to do with Chanel, yes, but also Gucci

I’m still in shock over how fast this entire year has flown by. When we were walking around town yesterday, I saw holiday decorations going up around the city. While the season may have taken us by surprise, I am still thrilled; this is my favorite time of year. Tory Burch asked me to pick my Holiday Pick from her diverse stable of items, and I have my heart set on the Tory Burch Quilted Cut-Out Mini Bag.
Pairing the right amount of sporty and chic, this bag is both classic and on-trend. When I think of a quilted leather bag and gold chain, Chanel immediately pops into my mind. But Tory found a way to integrate very traditional touches to a bag while making it stand apart from others that we all know and love. (more…)
As an ode to the iconic 2.55 Chanel handbag there are a number of handbags incorporating this the quilting trend. Quilted handbags feature various patterns primarily stitched onto leather. Many of the Marc Jacobs handbags incorporate quilting into the styling of the bag as well.
Quilting can also be seen on accessories like this Stella McCartney Wide Quilted Waist Belt (upper left on model, $525 at Net-a-Porter) and of course winter puffer jackets. Embroidered patterns are laid out in vertical and horizontal patterns overlap to create diamond or other patterns that add dimension and texture. (more…)
