[poll id=”60″] Here are four versions (though there are lots of more, including exotic skin) of the Chanel 2.55 bag. only 2 are made of the same material, which happens to be jersey, while one other is leather and the last is patent leather. Yes, jersey material, you read that right. If I am getting a 2.55 from Chanel it will be in leather or an exotic skin, but not everyone feels the same way. This Chanel bag is one of the most recognizable from the house. Are any of these four versions working for you? vote now and let’s see what you think.

There are a lot of things that I love. I love Alexander McQueen. I love black and white patterns. I love challenging design. I love it when function and art collide and something interesting results. But I don’t love the Alexander McQueen Houndstooth Tote. I understand the intent behind this bag, and it’s brave of designers to try and play with pattern and proportion in avant garde ways. just because it’s brave doesn’t imply it works, though, and this particular creation just doesn’t. The houndstooth pattern appears in different sizes and runs in different directions in the uneven patchwork sections that make up the body of this bag, and the entire thing is capped and dotted with high-shine black leather at the edges and in flaps strewn about the bag’s body. In the all-leather version, the continuity of the black material allows the asymmetry of the stitching and paneling to…

However, this season brands have taken it one step further as well as moved beyond the wicker basket bags as well as hard-sided bags that have been trending the last couple of summers.

We very first covered this emerging pattern with Fendi’s spring 2020 collection, which featured woven iterations of its ever prominent Peekaboo bag. Now, we’re seeing tons more of these bags from brands at every level. We discovered 11 choices ranging from $30 to over $3,000, so whether you want to snag…

It remains cool in many parts of the country, and even some warm-weather southern climates have a bit of a cold front going on at the moment. Yet even still, we’ve got our eyes set on spring! one of the first trends to become apparent as spring’s lineups hit our favorite e-tailers is color, color, color, and chartreuse seems to be making its rise to the top. designers as varied and powerful as Bottega Veneta and Balenciaga saw fit to include chartreuse in their lineups, and some of our favorite silhouettes like the coach pillow Tabby and Bottega Veneta’s mini Jodie appear dressed in chartreuse for the new season. once is enough to take notice; twice makes us ponder, but three times makes a trend.

Sorry, Marc Jacobs, you’re going to have to do something more fascinating to get me to sit up as well as pay interest than what you did with the Marc Jacobs Studded Satin Bag. Yes, yes. Quilting, tonal studs, chain handle, we get it. as well as it’s on-trend, however for some reason it’s just not exciting. Or perhaps it would be more interesting if this bag, which is made from absolutely zero leather, were priced in a more appropriate method for a non-leather bag. So precisely exactly how much is it? It’s $1695, which blows my mind – Jacobs is usually much more reasonable on pricing when it comes to his satin or nylon bags, however not here. as well as that’s not to state that this bag doesn’t look well made – it does. The quilting is incredibly precise as well as the satin is just plush sufficient…

Recently, I was taking inventory of my wardrobe when I realized I’ve added about a dozen bags to my collection because last spring, which is a lot (even for me). I don’t want to say I regret purchasing so numerous because I certainly love all of them. They each play an integral role in my wardrobe, but there are three star players that stand out.

Stalvey specializes in American-made exotics, and its five-figure handbags have been popular with celebs for about a year now. but I’m sure they’ll enjoy a significant bump from a little extra celeb love at the VMAs. Jennifer Lopez (recently declared an MTV legend) and Kylie Jenner (lip kit legend) both carried one of the brand’s top handle 2.0 Bags on Monday night. The VMAs were, of course, our primary source of celeb bag pics this time around, and the picks do not disappoint. and yet, my favorite bag by far is still the Judith Leiber that Kim Kardashian carried to a very special anniversary party earlier this week.
