SNAPSHOT: Gucci RE(BELLE) Crossbody Bag Reversible: can be worn with the Gucci GG logo front facing, or Gucci’s iconic lion head facing forwards Crossbody Strap is Adjustable: can also be worn as a shoulder bag or removed completely to be carried as a clutch Two interior pockets to hold cash, credit cards, train tickets etc. Interior is tiny and an odd shape Zippers get stuck easily A few months back, we introduced you to the Gucci RE(BELLE) Tote , which immediately became a favorite bag of mine due to its seemingly never-ending interior capacity and the beautifully soft and supple leather. Though the RE(BELLE) was offered in a medium size tote as well as the large one we took a look at, many of you wondered why Gucci didn’t make the bag in smaller versions
Our usual crop of bag lovers seems a bit more adverse to having their photos taken this week than usual. Fortunately, we have ample pics of Meghan Markle , who is all grace and diplomacy.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a very special time of year. Nordstrom structures its sale seasons a little differently than other high-end retailers, which means that it’s got a whole host of markdowns happening on in-season merchandise right now, just as most other sites have only full price options to offer. (And when the sale ends, the prices go back up because the stuff is so new, so time is of the essence.) Beyond that, though, there’s something else the Anniversary Sale is known for: tons of beauty deals and discounts, which virtually no other sale offers.
Every established luxury brand in the world has in front of it, at this moment, both a problem and an opportunity: the next generation of high-end shoppers is becoming secure enough in their finances to be a force to be reckoned with in the industry, and like any generation, they want slightly different things and have slightly different expectations than those who came before them. Millennials are shaping up into a group that prizes simplicity, usability and irreverence in their luxury goods, and they want distinctive bags and accessories that telegraph plenty of personality. Every brand will have to find its own way to incorporate the challenge of this new market into its designs, but it’s clear from the Prada Fall 2018 runway bags that they’ve chosen to meet the opportunity head-on.
As we’ve written about several times in the past few months, we’re in something of a golden age for emerging handbag designers .
When you run a website about luxury goods, you hear a lot of the same question: how do people afford these things? Sometimes it’s asked in genuine curiosity, and other times, it’s a rhetorical declaration of awe and confusion at other people’s very different lives. Either way, this curiosity persists at least in part because the question of money is one that’s forbidden in traditional fashion media, which generally considers it rude to acknowledge that participating in fashion costs a lot .
It’s finally here: the much-anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access Sale is open to all Nordstrom cardholders starting today. If you have a Nordstrom card, you can access and shop the sale . (If not, you have to wait until it opens to the public on the 20th, but you’ll be able to view everything now to plan your cart.) After the sale ends, prices will return to normal, so you don’t want to miss out
Over the years, more and more reseller sites have popped up catering to the designer bag market, but none are as much of a household name as eBay. eBay has been the place to go for the majority of pre-owned bag shoppers and sellers alike over the years, so much so that we have an entire section of our forum dedicated to talking about eBay shopping.
In general, I believe that most things in the world of accessories are matters of personal taste, which means I’m slow to become evangelical about my belief in the goodness of any particular trend, brand, structure or look.
Celebrity kids are already heading back from summer camp—have we turned the corner on summer already? It’s extremely possible, given the amount of linen that celebs are wearing this week. Once we’ve hit peak linen, summer is basically over.
