Look at the Celine Triomphe Bag

It’s been over a year since the Celine Triomphe Bag popped up on Celine’s website along with the rest of Hedi Slimane’s debut collection for the brand. In that time the bag has slowly, but steadily found its way into the hands of some of our favorite style stars. Selena Gomez, Angelina Jolie, Brie Larson, Emilia Clarke and Karlie Kloss have all been spotted with the Triomphe bag in tow. When these VIP ladies take notice, so do we, and while this isn’t the first Celine by Hedi Slimane bag we’ve lusted after, it also likely won’t be the last. The mainline Triomphe comes in three sizes, though we photographed the medium in white, which retails for $3,550, and the red in the teen size, which you can buy for $3,100, both...

The Ultimate Bag Guide: Bottega Veneta The Pouch

No one quite knew what to expect from Daniel Lee when Kering announced he would take over as creative director at Bottega Veneta. The 32-year-old Brit’s last post was director of ready-to-wear at Celine, but he wasn’t a choice many expected to take over Tomas Maier’s role. His lack of social media presence is unexpected from a millennial and the brand had such a strong DNA of what to expect from Maier’s vision, that any change would be quite different. But in his short time at the house, he’s turned the brand from what was perceived as older, safe classics to multiple major hits and covetable shoe options that continue to be hard to track down. This is Daniel Lee’s Bottega...

A Very Different Chanel for Spring 2020

This collection was far more demure than what we’ve come to expect from runway shows and the over-the-top settings and themes Lagerfeld seamlessly presented season after season. Every item may not have been ideal for everyday wear, but there was a strong cohesion and playfulness that helped create some of the most memorable bags that quickly turned into collectors items. Viard has big shoes to fill as she discovers her own essence at Chanel, but if this collection is a look at what to expect, it will be far different from Lagerfeld. A few classics were spotted with tonal metal hardware matching the bright blue and green leather. As for new designs, there was a cylindrical wristlet with a cursive Chanel...

Celebs Make the Rounds with Nice Bags

Every other single bag in here was a breeze to ID, but Reese has thrown quite an enigma wrapped in a riddle at us this week. Also, it's a great week for juicy celeb news items. Meghan Markle is visibly pregnant, Rihanna is still wearing baggy, oversized everything, and Kate Beckinsale is dating a younger man, to boot! But I know you're really just here for the bags, so let's dive in. Meghan Markle Meghan and Harry recently paid a visit to the town of Birkenhead, and the Duchess of Sussex brought this Gabriela Hearst Nina Bag along for the trip. Meghan is six months along now. Khloe Kardashian I feel like Khloe Kardashian has kept a (comparatively) much lower profile since the birth...

It Bag: Gucci’s Spring 2019 Runway Show

Fashion month has been over for almost a week, but Gucci did things a little differently this year. Not only did the Italian brand do a one-time-only show in Paris instead of Milan, but for days after the show, images of the collection's details were scant in all the usual spots we can usually find such things. Because Gucci is such a big, influential player in the accessories business, though, we've kept checking, and finally, our efforts were rewarded: we have just over a dozen photos of Gucci's Spring 2019 handbags to share with you. Hard to say how Mickey Mouse figures into all of this, except that his head got made into a handbag, which you will be able to buy for...

Valentino Velvet Bag

This fall, Valentino gave us a treat with its new Rockstud bag: The Valentino No Limit Bag. Like the Rockstud bags of the past, I loved this bag immediately when I saw it, and when Valentino sent us options to shoot, I was super intrigued by the velvet version. Not surprisingly, I loved it in black, and when I saw it in person, I thought it was the perfect velvet bag for fall. Like the Rockstud bags of the past and present, this bag is eye-catching and elegant. Valentino does details so incredibly well, and this brand new addition to the Rockstud line is no different. The studs are not too big, nor are they too small—they’re just right! The studs lining the bag...
