For Fall 2013, Animal Print Bags are More Muted

When I spoke to Net-a-Porter fashion director Holli Rodgers a few weeks ago regarding Pre-Fall and Fall 2013′s big accessories trends, she expressed a bit of a reticence toward animal prints, and leopard in particular. In fact, Rodgers reported that she had tried to make it through the whole buying season without adding any leopard-print bags to the Net-a-Porter fall roster, although that didn’t quite come to pass. She may not be the only person who’s experiencing a bit of animal print fatigue; pre-fall and fall collections still feature plenty of animal bags,

With the notable exception of Gucci Fall 2013, animal prints, including leopard,
christian louboutin flats sale, zebra, giraffe and snake, feel more subtle in a variety of ways. On some bags,
clearance christian louboutin, the materials are now implemented as trim instead of as the main attraction; on others,
christian louboutin tennis shoes, the contrast had been dialed down to make the print look paler than it might have been in past seasons. The most extreme example, of course, is tonal leopard, where only a difference in texture makes the print apparent. Check out the best examples of the trend below, and let us know – do you still love animal prints or are you ready for something new?

Fendi Vanity

I simply cannot make myself write about it. I hate Fendi!! That was Megs’ reaction when I suggested the Fendi Vanity for today. What a bold statement. According to the Lady, they look hideous and are overpriced. To me,
christian louboutin designer, Fendi is among the most recognized iconic fashion labels with decades of tradition in creating must-have items for the fashion elite. And the brown zucca and red leather Vanity handbag belongs to one of their master pieces. The brown zucca canvas with burgundy, red and metallic pink leather accents features a flap over top with a magnetic clasp and a hinged leather ornament on its front with geometric etched mirrored plate. The convertible handbag comes with a 29 removable metallic pink leather shoulder strap and standard top handle. Its insides reveal brown logo nylon lining with an interior patch pocket. Even better is that you can get this icon bag for over 30% off… it still clocks in at $1,132 though. Via BlueFly.

RHBH: "Arriba, abajo, al centro, al dentro."

For a long time, I held out hope that maybe, if we waited long enough, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would give us some sort of juicy B-plot to fill out the season, beyond just the Adrienne-Brandi fight. At this point, it seems as though that was all a pipe dream, and producers will be content to let us listen to people argue about whether or not a letter was sent for the duration. That’s too bad Taylor’s destructive behavior would have been a good addition,
Valentino Shoes for Women, had the notion been pursued earlier in the season when she was threatening to throw bows on Brandi. Or, you know, I’d settle for spending 15 minutes per episode touring a new part of Lisa’s house. Somehow, no one at Bravo has thought of that yet.

1. Are plastic surgery-unveiling parties a thing? Or did Kim make that up? My initial impulse is that it would work better for something like a nose job than breast implants or, god forbid, a labiaplasty, but I guess you never know when it comes to reality TV. Taylor would probably sign up to unveil her very soul if it got her some additional camera time. Kim, to her credit,
Valentino Red Women Shoes, is probably the owner of the most subtle and tasteful nose job on all of reality TV. Of course, when your chief competition is the cast of Shahs of Sunset, that’s kind of damning her with faint praise. But still, nice work. Despite Adrienne’s constant protestations, I doubt Paul would have done any better.

2. Speaking of Taylor. She abandoned her kid with Kyle (once she found out that her kid was with Kyle to begin with, which she did not know at the outset of the phone call) in order to hop on a plane and go to Beaver Creek with some guy she’s known for 48 hours. While calling to beg out of Kim’s pool party, she sounded drunk, high or both. Even Kim seemed pretty sure that Taylor was on something, and addicts in recovery sniff that type of stuff out pretty quickly. Taylor was already in the car headed to the airport before she had bothered to figure out who was going to watch Kennedy while she banged some random dude all weekend, and she only did that by accident while calling Kyle to brag about her spontaneous vacation, which brings to mind all sorts of questions: Where did Taylor think Kennedy was? Why wasn’t Taylor’s first call to the person she thought was taking care of Kennedy?

3. Lisa’s old house burned down. Adrienne evacuated her house, which is across the street,
Valentino Sneakers Womens Sale, and then got mad at Paul for staying behind in their house, which was in absolutely no danger. BAD CHOICE, SAYS ADRIENNE.

4. These people still think white parties are A Thing. I’m pretty sure P.Diddy doesn’t even throw his white party anymore.

5. Add people talking in limos on the way to parties to the list of Housewives tropes I’m over. I’m over it like white parties are over. I don’t need to hear Adrienne and Paul reassure each other that no lawyer ever sent any letter. I already know that’s their story and they’re sticking to it, and they’re not particularly convincing liars.

6. Adrienne leaves spray tan skidmarks everywhere she goes. Also,
Discount Valentino Handbags, she seems unconcerned that she’s ruined like eight different pieces of pristine white upholstery in Lisa’s house. If you had asked me to guess what Adrienne smells like in real life, though, spray tan would have been my first choice, so this revelation, while indicative of her sloppiness, was not necessarily an enormous surprise. I hope Lisa gives her a towel to sit on in the future.

7. Lisa and Kyle have the same shoes, but Kyle bought hers on sale. This whole conversation was a perfect illustration of the way that a British accent allows you to passive-aggressively make fun of people in ways that would be far more crass and obvious if, say, Kyle tried the same thing. In my personal experience, a southern accent works in much the same way.

8. So maybe there was a letter. During the sitdown with Brandi, Adrienne and Paul during the white party, it seemed as though Paul admitted at one point that a letter had been sent, before then claiming once again that there had been no letter. Brandi came with her file folded up inside her tiny Chanel bag, though, and she was able to produce evidence that she had paid her lawyer to respond to Adrienne’s lawyer, in addition to evidence from Radar Online that Adrienne’s personal chef had been the one selling stories about her. I love it when people follow my after-the-fact Internet instructions.

9. Suing someone for saying something that’s true is indeed a jerk move. Just in case we haven’t covered this explicitly in the past: By all accounts, what Brandi said about Adrienne and Paul seems to have been true, even if it wasn’t something they wanted to come to light. Telling someone’s secrets is not actionable grounds for a lawsuit, and threatening to sue over something like that is a clear case of rich people trying to use their money to bully others into doing what they want them to do. JERK MOVE.

10. Ken’s a BAMF. Adrienne and Paul really started to sputter and act like school children when Ken came up and joined the conversation. He wasn’t necessarily needed in the convo, and the gathering that he brought with him probably didn’t help the civility of the interaction, but I do enjoy that his own wealth allows him to stand up to bullies in a way that’s much riskier for someone like Brandi. To me, that has to be one of the greatest things money can buy you a certain level of fearlessness.

11. Yolanda was too busy making lemonade and reorganizing her glass-doored cupboard to come to Kyle’s party. Not that I, or any of us, can blame her.

In which I share my love of Loewe Bags

Tracking down and buying Loewe bags in the US is hard and because of this, I rarely think of the Spanish brand that makes such covetable bags. But the other day I was thinking of what brands we can feature that are different from the usual designers we’ve come to associate with designer handbags, and Loewe popped into my mind.

The Madrid-based brand is known by much of Europe for its beautiful leather goods,
Ferragamo Shoes Discount, but most people in the US are not as familiar with Loewe. Though there are a handful of American stores that carry a few Loewe bags,
Stone island Jackets Sale, it simply is not enough and this brand deserves so much more attention from us and the rest of the accessory loving world.

Each collection focuses on the beauty of the leather and craftsmanship, pairing sensuality with geometry and richness with classical. Like much of the Spanish culture,
Stone Island Clothing Sale, bright colors are added along with touches flare which is very reminiscent of Spanish culture. I love how the bags are refined but not boring. Amanda and I continue to share our love of the brand and while she hasn’t found the perfect Loewe bag that she needs to add to her personal collection, I’ve decided this may be one of my next additions. It is just that good. Today, I want all of you to consider Loewe a serious contender for your next handbag purchase; I know I will. Shop Loewe online.

Mulberry opens its New York flagship with bags that are red, white and blue all over NYC

Photos via Stylelist

Although Mulberry already has a very nice boutiques in the West Village and on the cusp of the Upper East Side, it’s no surprise that the brand that named its most famous bag after Alexa Chung would want to have a serious downtown presence as well. This week,
Stone Island Clothing for Men, Mulberry will be opening its first stateside flagship in Soho, and to commemorate the occasion, the brand has released the Mulberry New York Clipper Satchel in the shared colors of America and Britain red, white and blue.

To further prove Mulberry’s commitment to America, the company teamed up with StyleList to shoot some photos of the patriotic trio around town. You guys know that we love a good bags-as-art photo as much as anyone else, so we’ve got our favorites after the jump. You can see the rest of them at StyleList and buy the bag,
Salvatore Ferragamo Belts, which comes with a special Peace, Love and New York luggage tag,
Cheap Stone Island Jacket, at the new Spring Street spot once it opens. I haven’t been able to find a price for the New York Clipper, but I’d bet it’s around a grand.

Man Bag Monday: The Givenchy L.C,
Stone Island Clothing Sale. 24H Bag

Although menswear’s reach is expanding rapidly, I rarely find myself wishing I could hop to the other side of the gender aisle to experiment; women’s fashion is just a lot more fun. The Givenchy L.C. 24H Bag is the rare piece that makes its women’s equivalent, the Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, look bad by comparison.

I like the Lucrezia, but it’s never felt quite right to me. So many companies make bags of exactly that same shape,
Salvatore Ferragamo Shoes Sale, and Givenchy’s only tweak was the front trim extending down from the handle attachments. This bag isn’t much different, but the folded top corners and slightly domed top make it feel slightly different than bags like the Gucci Boston or the Louis Vuitton SC. It’s just enough of a change from the expected shape to make the bag feel distinct.

Those changes are likely the result of the Lucrezia being refashioned as men’s overnight bag,
Cheap Stone Island Jacket, and the domed top gives the interior some extra roominess. Ladies like a little extra room too, though, and I can’t help but wish that the Lucrezia more closely resembled the L.C. Buy thorugh Mr. Porter for $2,
Ferragamo Shoes Discount,625. (Also worth noting: this bag is far larger than the medium Lucrezia and $30 less expensive. Dudes be gettin’ all the good fashion deals.)

Mulberry Ostrich Bayswater Bag

The beauty behind certain handbags is undeniable. Sassy and sultry, the Mulberry Ostrich Bayswater Bag brings together the beauty of exotic ostrich in a stunning purple hue. This specific combination is exclusive to Net A Porter,
Stone Island Clothing for Men, offering any customer with a radiating and stunning piece. The gold hardware gleams on the purple ostrich. The Bayswater design is not new, and has received its share of naysayers, claiming that this design is remarkably close to a Hermes Birkin. Yet,
Salvatore Ferragamo Men’s Belts, comparing the leather version to the new and re-vamped ostrich version is like comparing the night to day or the East to the West. The shape is the same, but the bag as a whole is entirely different. Some exotic handbags seem totally fragile and need to be cared for like an infant, but this handbag is meant to be used. On the sides there are hidden buckles to expand the bag, and there is a zippered and open pouch on the inside for storage. The color, the exotic skin, and the usability factor make this handbag utterly hot. Exclusively at Net A Porter for $3995.

I ive got a big ol i bag crush on the Salar Juni Shoulder Bag

Salar Juni Woven Leather Shoulder Bag,
Stone Island Outlet Store, $810 via Luisa Via Roma

By the very nature of this job, I end up writing about a lot of bags that couldn’t be further from my personal style. And that’s ok, because it’s part of being successful in the fashion industry: The ability to see the value in things beyond your own narrow point of view. But sometimes, a bag like the Salar Juni Woven Shoulder Bag pops up and presents itself as exactly the type of bag that I’d love to carry, and those are always exciting days for me. You have to take pleasure in the little things,
Salvatore Ferragamo Shoes Sale, people.

Although I’m generally drawn to brightly colored bags, my love for black is deep and abiding. Particularly black leather, which appeals to the teenage punk who lives inside of my head and the Rick Owens lover that I’ve turned into as an adult. And despite the fact that it’s difficult to do things that are new and exciting with a black hobo,
Cheap Stone Island Jacket, this design seems fresh and edgy. It’s the kind of bag that I wish Alexander Wang made more often. The soft leather gives the bag a ton of texture when it’s woven into a loose crosshatch, but the shape and color ensure that it stays functional and neutral. If the leather’s as nice in person as it looks in photos, the bag is well worth the price. Buy through Luisa Via Roma for $810

LAI Hani Clutch

LAI Python Hani Clutch and LAI Crocodile Hani Clutch

The only problem I have with this clutch is deciding which one I like more. Do I go with option A, the python clutch, or option B, the crocodile clutch? Then again, there is always the option to throw all frugality out the window and get both. Lux Couture carries the LAI line, whose acronym name means luxury accessory international,
Salvatore Ferragamo Shoes Sale, which is precisely what their handbags exude. The LAI Hani Clutch has my heart, in both gray metallic python and blue crocodile. I am totally stuck on the fence, wondering which way I should sway. The Hani clutch is a sleek accordion style and both versions are easy to dress down or dress up. There is a handy angled band across the front of both for you to slip your fingers through for ease of carrying. Both are hardware free, which means the exotic materials speak for themselves. Both measure 10″ x 5.5″ and are lined in plush suede and both cost $1,125 [crocodile here and python here]. If you are interested,
Cheap Stone Island Jacket, go to Lux Couture now and tell Sari we sent you,
Salvatore Ferragamo Men’s Belts, she will take care of you!

Louis Vuitton Core Values: Annie Leibovitz with Mikhail Baryshnikov

I have a hard time putting into words the excitement I felt when I received the press release on the latest Louis Vuitton Core Values campaign. As with the previous campaigns featuring outstanding personalities like Sean Connery, Michail Gorbachev, Keith Richards and the famous astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Jim Lovell and Sally Ride, the latest campaign could not have chosen better Core Values icons.

There is no other photographer whose work I have adored and studied as much as Annie Leibowitz’s beautiful portraits for Rolling Stone, Vogue and Vanity Fair. Hence, I was delighted to find out that she would be featured in the latest Core Values campaign, alongside her close friend and legendary dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov. The self-portrait captures a delightfully intimate moment between the two friends in Annie’s NYC studio, with subtle lighting accenting key elements of the scene.

Absolutely marvelous! Fantastic of the fashion house to honor the exceptional photographer and artist who has been going through rough times financially in the past year.

Press release below!

LOUIS VUITTON

ANNIE LEIBOVITZ WITH MIKHAIL BARYSHNIKOV:

A UNIQUE SELF-PORTRAIT FOR LOUIS VUITTON

As Louis Vuitton’s Core Values advertising campaign enters 2010,
Cheap Stone Island Jacket, Annie Leibovitz, the photographer whose remarkable portraits have greatly contributed to its success, turns her lens upon herself in the company of her long-time friend, the legendary dancer and choreographer Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Never before has an Annie Leibovitz self-portrait appeared in the context of an advertising campaign, and the story behind it is almost as fascinating as the image itself. Over the course of their three-year collaboration on the Core Values campaign, Louis Vuitton and Annie Leibovitz have forged a relationship of mutual trust and respect. Given the photographer’s recent personal and financial troubles, Louis Vuitton wished to offer support in the most positive way possible, and suggested that she become the next exceptional personality to feature in the Core Values campaign. Annie Leibovitz was touched and flattered, and accepted on the condition that the self-portrait should show her alongside one of the stars she has spent her life photographing her close friend Mikhail Baryshnikov.

One of the foremost dancers of the 20th century, Mikhail Baryshnikov defected from the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War and went on, in the course of an exceptionally long career, to grace the world’s greatest stages, before breaking new ground as an artistic director and choreographer. For Louis Vuitton,
Cheap Stone Island Clothing Sale for Men, he is photographed in Annie Leibovitz’s New York studio, standing on a box in his dancer’s uniform of black T-shirt and trousers,
Salvatore Ferragamo Men’s Belts, with a subtle spotlight falling on his uniquely gifted feet. Annie Leibovitz sits on the floor nearby. Next to her is her camera, from which she is rarely parted, and a Louis Vuitton Neverfull holdall in Monogram canvas packed with books on dance. The tagline reads: The journey of a star captured in a flash.

Antoine Arnault, Head of Communications at Louis Vuitton, comments: We have the greatest respect and admiration for Annie Leibovitz, both as a person and as a professional. We were delighted to be able to offer her our support in troubled times, and she has responded like the consummate artist she is, with a truly exceptional image which with its association of photography and dance once again broadens the scope of our Core Values campaign.

The new Core Values visual will appear in the February 2010 issues of international titles. A film evoking the encounter between Annie Leibovitz and Mikhail Baryshnikov will go on line from 11th February at louisvuittonjourneys.com, preceded by an exclusive press preview from 1st February (louisvuittonjourneyspress.com). The film can also be accessed via the Louis Vuitton corporate website louisvuitton.com.
