5 Bags Every New Yorker Will Be Carrying in 2016

Categories:Other Brands

We’re serious about our bags, and for the past few years, the bags we’ve seen fashionable New Yorkers carrying have been serious, too: Black, neutral and totally minimalist. Yawn.

While structured basics aren’t going anywhere, 2016 is all about whimsical details and pops of color. Here are the five handbags you’ll see everyone carrying--bring on the tassels.

NY Bags List1
THE CHRONICLES OF HER

THE CHAIN-LINK SHOULDER BAG

This Gucci beauty is all over Manhattan this year, but thankfully, you don’t have to cash out your 401K to rock this style. Keep an eye out for structured, boxy shapes (slouchy bags need not apply) and simple embellishments.

Get the look: Aldo ($55); Tory Burch ($475); Gucci ($1,650)

NY Bags List2b
LOVELYPEPA

THE MICRO BAG

OK, this teeny-tiny purse isn’t going to fit your Kindle, your laptop, your makeup bag and all of the other stuff you lug around on the regular, but we guarantee it’ll be the most fun bag in your collection--especially if you get it in a color like lavender or pink.

Get the look: H&M ($20); Zara ($70); Fendi ($1,550)

NY Bags List3
WITH LOVE FROM KAT

THE TOP-HANDLE LADY BAG

While this bag didn’t technically ever go out of style, this '70s throwback will be super popular this year. Stay neutral, sling it over your forearm (never the shoulder; that’s a fashion no-no) and you can’t go wrong.

Get the look: Asos ($42); MICHAEL Michael Kors ($368);Cartier ($2,030)

NY Bags List4
THIS TIME TOMORROW

THE STRUCTURED BACKPACK

These guys have been around a few years, but they’ve finally gone mainstream (yesss). You’ll have your pick of sophisticated backpacks, and by “backpack” we are not referring to that monogrammed L.L. Bean monstrosity you wore in high school.

Get the look: Silence + Noise ($69); Rag & Bone ($595); Dolce & Gabbana ($2,600)

NY Bags List5
THE BLONDE SALAD

ANYTHING WITH TASSELS

Tassels are all over the place this season (including your new favorite Loeffler Randall slides), but it’s easy to go overboard on this fun trend. Stick with a neutral base color so you can use it as a wardrobe staple.

Get the look: Joseph D’Arezzo ($25); Rebecca Minkoff ($245);Chloe ($2,390)

Marc Quinn’s hyperrealist art can now be found on Lady Dior handbags

Categories:Other Brands

Dior by Marc Quinn (2)


Last week, Dior celebrated two important events, the launch of their home label and the opening of their four story London shop. The store is Dior’s largest in all of the UK, and retails ‘women’s and men’s universes, leather accessories, jewelry, timepieces, the children’s collections and Baby Dior, with the exclusive addition of the first Dior HOME.’ To celebrate this milestone store opening, Dior will unveil a limited-edition selection of iconic Lady Dior bags and small leather accessories that have been reimagined by the artist Marc Quinn.

Quinn has breathed a new life into iconic Dior pieces by transposing his hyper real artwork onto the French brand’s classic handbags. The artist’s well known works make Dior’s bags into dramatic accessories.

The Lady Dior “Fossil Record” bag. The floral motifs represent flowers that are eternally trapped in a state of perfect full bloom. The concept references the desire of man to totally control nature.

Bags with a bright blue iris from Quinn’s series ‘We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars’. Quinn stated that “the word ‘iris’ comes from the Greek word for ‘rainbow’, and the colors celebrate individuality.” He added “In the middle, there’s the black void of the pupil, which recalls the mystery and uncertainty of existence.”

The collection also includes small leather goods. This piece features an orchid from the collection, “In the Night Garden.”

The colors of the flower and background are reversed on the other side of the same card holder.

There’s a lot to love and admire in this collection if you’re a fan of either Quinn or Dior. We don’t know how many pieces each item in the collection is limited to, but we do know that every item is sure to sell out quickly.

Artist collaborations seem to be popular these days. Not long ago, Jeff Koons created some stylish phone cases for Google.

Salvatore Ferragamo Gancio Lock Shoulder Bag: It’s Good to Be Gancio

Categories:Other Brands

Salvatore Ferragamo Gancio Lock Shoulder Bag

When Ferragamo is good, they are really, really good. And the Gancio shoulder bag is about at good as it gets, when it comes to a bag that ticks off certain boxes – criteria that frequently come up when discussing bags. Like timeless. Check. Ladylike yet modern? Check. Fully functional? Check, again. Altogether appealing on the eyes? Final check.

A lot of colorblocked bags have a way of looking like their bold color schemes come before the design, but with the Gancio, it’s the opposite. You notice its decidedly structured shape, decadent gold hardware closure, and clean geometry before the rest registers. That’s the beauty of a gorgeous combination of hues, like a pop of forest green on the otherwise neutral medium-sized version, a punch of pink against subdued taupe and cream, or a switched-up version featuring a burst of sunny yellow (both in a smaller size) – it just feels right. Available for $1,850 (small) and $1,990 (medium) at Salvatore Ferragamo.

We already know Kylie Jenner has a major shoe obsession, but stilettos aren't the only accessory Kylie is splurging on. Kylie took to Instagram to share a picture of her new favorite crossbody carryall, a blush-pink style from family favorite Givenchy.

First drawn to Kylie's new It bag because of its gorgeous, soft color, we quickly fell for its practicality too. Kylie proved it's as functional as it is chic when she carried it on her shoulder at the Paper Towns premiere earlier this week. Read on for a look at Kylie's new bag, along with a few similar styles that caught our eye. That way, you too can feel pretty in pink, no matter what the rest of your outfit may be.

Dior Large Be Dior Bag For Fall Winter 2015 Collection

Categories:Other Brands

Dior-Be-Dior-Large-Fall-Winter-2015-Collection-5

Is it the newest Large Be Dior Flap Bag?

That’s a great question.

We still do not know, but looking at its appearance, it does seem like that Dior is releasing the large version of their Be Dior Flap Bag.

But let’s focus at something else…

Let’s look at the design and the colors…

These bags are one of Dior’s finest, and I can bet that the elements are inherited from the Be Dior Flap Bags. The handles are more flexible, easier to carry and sling (if you like that). It features a leather strap for optional shoulder carry.

It’s designed with a large flap, the bag is also bigger than the original Be Dior Flap Bags, which means there are more space to store your essentials. I think you will love that.

Dior has made this bag in different kind of leathers and colors, including exotic prints like python and bright colors like orange. It’s also made in bicolors like blue and black, red and white or single colors like brown.

Just like any timeless Dior bags, it also features the iconic DIOR charms.

So what do you think? You like or not?
