Monogram Makes a Major Comeback at Louis Vuitton is Fall 2015 Menswear Show

While we all sit under a blizzard in New York, a lot has been happening in Paris. Couture shows just started, and immediately before them,
christian louboutin pigalle pump, the world’s biggest menswear brands opened the Fall 2015 show season. One of the last shows on the schedule was Louis Vuitton, and under the guidance of men’s creative director Kim Jones, the brand’s iconic monogram canvas has made a comeback.

Jones has overseen the design on several impressive men’s accessories collections over the past few seasons, but in the past,
real christian louboutin shoes on sale, the emphasis has generally been on leather or Damier, Vuitton’s less flashy signature print. This collection does feature a new take on Damier Graphite,
christian louboutin online stockists, one with graphic rope detailing that pays tribute to late designer and artist Christopher Nemeth.

The unexpected star of the handbag show is monogram, though, and it makes its appearance in fairly straightforward ways: simply shaped bags and accessories that, on first glance, appear quite similar to bags Vuitton has made for decades. Many have contrasting trim or edge paint, though, and some come with collection-specific zipper pulls. Check out all the accessory photos below; you can expect these bags to hit stores in about six months.

Isabel Marant wants you to dress like a Native American Parisian (What?)

Isabel Marant Melly Embroidered Bag, $1235. Isabel Marant Malou Emebellished Suede Clutch,
christian louboutin rain boots, $1080. Both via Net-a-Porter.

Watch out, I’m about to commit fashion blasphemy: I find Isabel Marant a bit tedious. I like her clothing on an aesthetic level, of course. There’s a reason that every supermodel and editor this side of Berlin is photographed wearing Marant almost constantly; her work is impeccable. But between her revulsion over women with breasts and her tone-deaf appropriation of the prints of native cultures that the Western world has almost entirely obliterated, she seems hell-bent on inhabiting every negative French stereotype that comes to mind.

That being said, I would wear the beads off of that burgundy bag up there. The Isabel Marant Malou Embellished Suede Clutch. Yep, and I’d hate myself a little bit for it. Why do people who annoy me have to make such pretty things sometimes?

It still strikes me as odd that a designer known for her enduring French-ness decided to take her Fall 2011 work in a direction that’s clearly based on Native America, but hey, maybe she watched Dances with Wolves and got all inspired or something. From my tone by itself, I think you guys can pretty clearly read my internal confusion on these bags. On the one hand,
christian louboutin for cheap, I’ve grown tired of fashion fawning over someone who comes across as at least a little bit vapid. On the other hand, I really dig these bags and they’re not terribly priced, another thing for which Marant is known.

I’m so conflicted,
christian louboutin sneakers women, you guys. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1235 and $1080,
christian louboutin wedding shoes uk, respectively.

Balenciaga Giant City

Balenciaga Giant City in Charcoal Grey

Over the weekend Vlad and I made the journey up the state of Florida to Tallahassee,
christian louboutin simple, home of Florida State University, where my brother goes to school. It was family weekend, and we went up to visit him and go to a Florida State game. If you know me, Vlad, or my family, you will know that we are rather obsessed with college football. This was my first FSU game and we had a great time, who wouldn’t? Even better is FSU won. I did not own a FSU tee-shirt and had to head to the school store to FSU myself, Vlad, and my mom out. We got shirts and finally fit in with the rest of the school population. What worked out perfectly is that I took my Rebecca Minkoff Wine Nikki and my mom had her Linea Pelle Dylan Croco Shoulder bag in yellow. Perfect bags that showed off garnet and gold and we didn’t even plan it.

When I went to Ohio State I had a hard time finding the perfect red bag to wear to the games. Red bags are not always my cup of tea as far as the color goes, too bright, too dark,
christian louboutin bridal shoes blue sole, not enough oomph. So why not skip over the red and carry a grey bag to an Ohio State game (colors are indeed Scarlett and grey). I figured out the perfect college football game day bag, the Balenciaga Giant City in charcoal grey. This is the precise bag I would buy from Balenciaga, and next week while in NYC, we will most likely raid the Balenciaga NYC store. This Balenciaga bag is designed with soft vintage lambskin and accented with large palladium plated metal hardware. I have been a fan of the oversized hardware from its inception, so here it is, the ideal college football game bag. It is young, hip, funky, stylish, and comes in a plethora of colors that can suit your college team needs. Of course it would work for NFL,
christian louboutin louis sneakers, MBA, NHL,
christian louboutin cheap, NBA, etc. And even if your school looses, a la Ohio State vs Penn State this past weekend,
christian louboutin pointed toe pump, at least you will be cheering and feeling lousy over the loss in style. Buy through Balenciaga online for $1595.

Want It Wednesday: The Row, Bindya and Saint Laurent

After 10 days of vacation, including this past Monday to celebrate Labor Day, I’m completely disoriented. It’s Wednesday, you say? I’ll take your word for it. You could tell me I was on Mars and I’d probably consider it fact for at least a split second. I’m inclined to believe it’s Wednesday, though,
christian louboutin wedges on sale, because that means it’s time for our first post-summer Want It Wednesday, and the PurseBlog team is craving some great fall essentials.

Bea

It’s officially fall, and after binging on buying all things summery and colorful, I’m in serious need of some black. For starters, a great black bag. With the weather getting colder, I want a bag that will be able to fit my winter accessories while not giving me that killer sore arm we’re all too familiar with. That’s why this week, I’m seriously lusting over the The Row Convertible Hobo Backpack. It’s practical,
christian louboutin lace, it’s beautiful, it’s sleek and ultimately everything you’ve ever wanted in a grown up backpack the only problem is it will cost you a pretty penny. I’ll be forced to save up for this beauty, but if you’re willing to splurge you can purchase it for $3,400 via Saks Fifth Avenue.

Shannon

I simply cannot believe it’s already September. While I’m reluctant to say goodbye to Summer, I have to admit, I am ready for crisp, cool, fall temperatures. There is one item that is a staple in my fall (and of course winter) wardrobe scarves. These little additions can really take any outfit to another level. So, as I begin to embrace Fall, that means I need to start adding to my current scarf collection. There’s no better way to kick the season off than with this gorgeous Bindya Pursuit of Happiness Scarf. I love the warm tones and feminine pattern. I happen to already own a few Bindya scarves and I think this one would fit oh-so-nicely with my collection. Buy through Saks for $150.

Amanda

You guys are probably all well aware that I’m no Saint Laurent fangirl,
christian louboutin lady lynch, but if there’s one thing Hedi Slimane knows how to do, it’s how to dress a rock star. When you’re looking for a bad-ass leather motorcycle jacket, as I happen to be, there’s nowhere else to look the Saint Laurent Leather Biker Jacket is all a girl could ever need. Leather jackets are everywhere this fall, but I have very specific ideas about what mine should be like,
christian louboutin look alike shoes, and they run counter to a lot of the trends. Many designers are choosing to go loose and oversized, like you borrowed your boyfriend’s jacket when he wasn’t looking, but I want mine to be extremely fitted and fall no lower than my natural waste. That’s the most flattering shape for a moto jacket unless you’re rail thin and fairly flat chested,
christian louboutin flats, and I’m decidedly not an oversized leather jacket makes me look like a linebacker. This one, on the other hand, would be totally perfect. It’s the classic, archetypal rock star moto with a rock star price to match. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $5,645.

Santa Baby, here is my Christmas Wish List

Truth be told, my wish list grows every single day; when I open my computer or walk around NYC, it’s super easy to find something I would absolutely love to have. What can I say, I really love gifts! But I wanted to put together a sweet and condensed list for you all to see what I am hoping I’ll find under the tree this year. Santa knows I’ve been a very good girl,
christian louboutin very prive patent pump, but I understand that Santa can’t dish out every designer piece I have on my list, so many of these items may remain on my wish list well into 2013.

This mix is eclectic, from a pair of red-soled Christian Louboutins to anti-aging cream to funky and classic jewelry – here’s my Christmas wishlist!

9

Tibi Skirt and Top

$525 and $275 via ShopBop

I adore Tibi, and this red full skirt and black-and-white check top will turn me immediately into the bell of the ball.

9

Jennifer Fisher Avery Charms and Necklace

Price depended upon on customization

My latest jewelry obsession is all things Jennifer Fisher. Seriously, go to her site and browse – if you have a little spunk, her jewels will be right up your alley. This array of charms is my jam.

9

Chanel Boy Bag

Prices starting at $2,750 via Chanel

Someone better buy me a Chanel Boy Bag so I can stop obsessing over it already. That is reason enough.

9

Christian Louboutin Chelita

$1,795 via Net-A-Porter

Red bottomed shoes make all of my wishlists and I think the Chelita is both sexy and wearable with the thicker heel.

9

La Prairie Anti-Aging Stress Cream

$215 via Neiman Marcus

None of us are getting any younger (and if you are, tell me your secret). I love La Prairie products, and I want my face to stay as wrinkle free as possible for as long as possible, so I’d like Santa to put this at the bottom of my stocking.

9

Hermes Kelly 2 Watch

$2,
christian louboutin black suede boots,000 via Hermes

This Swiss-made watch with a double leather strap has everything I am looking for in a timepiece,
christian louboutin classic pump. An orange box under the tree always puts a smile on any girl’s face.

9

Isabel Marant Ginkle Brocade Jacket

$1,095 via Net-A-Porter

I’m an Isabel Marant fangirl,
christian louboutin red bottom shoes, and truth be told, I’d love anything from her for Christmas. But right now this chic silver bomber jacket is calling my name, and it can be dressed up and dressed down easily.

9

Valentino Rockstud Leather Headband

$245 via Net-A-Porter

You know the girls who are awesome at doing their own hair? Well, I’m not one of them. And for this reason, I love a good hat or headband. I love Valentino’s Rockstud collection too, and this leather headband makes a statement while helping my hair stay in place.

9

Vita Fede Titan Crystal Stud Earring

$290 via ShopBop

Another jewelry want on my list – can you see a theme here?! I love these studs and the crystal detail takes it to the next level.

Tod is Spring 2013 Bags and Accessories

I’ve been feeling a growing excitement towards Tod’s recently and it all started with their Tod’s Tote Bag. The brand is known for their beautiful products,
christian louboutin spiked flats, but I felt a bit lackluster about the designs they were putting out – it all seemed too restrained,
discount christian louboutin pumps, maybe even too refined. But it looks like Tod’s is finding the happy medium between being a brand that is known for elegance and being a brand that stays on trend.

For Tod’s Spring 2013, my beloved Tote Bag returns in a creamy nude hue and along with it are beautiful python skins in some of the most familiar shapes from the brand. The classic Ballerina shoe is revamped with an overall lift which I adore. There is much of the same,
mary jane christian louboutin, it is just more beautiful than usual,
christian louboutin prive slingback, and I would also like to add that I think I should move into their Italian showroom.

Miu Miu Patent Square Tote

What was your first Miu Miu purchase? Actually, come to think of it,
christian louboutin 42, I don’t own a Miu Miu handbag… yet. As much as I love handbags, I tend to error on the side of purchasing once I am totally sure I want it. I consider almost all of my handbags investment pieces and I love that most of them have a unique story behind them. When I came across the Miu Miu Patent Square Tote I couldn’t decide if this would be in the running for my first Miu Miu purchase or not. For those of you who know me,
christian louboutin sample sale nyc, you know that I am a tad skeptical when it comes to white handbags. But, I truly love something about this goldtone hardware on white patent combination. At the same time, there is a sense of freshness about this bag. It’s chic,
christian louboutin ankle boot, fun, and versatile. Yet, is it enough to be my first Miu Miu? Any other suggestions? Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1995.

Alexander McQueen Bubble Tote

Alexander McQueen Bubble Tote

Nothing about this bag does it for me, starting with the hardware. Actually,
christian louboutin lace pumps, the hardware is what makes the bag go from whatever to tacky. And the worst part of the hardware on this handbag is where it meets the handles. It all looks and feels so wrong to me on the Alexander McQueen Bubble Tote. And it does not matter to me that this bag waltzed down the runway,
selfridges christian louboutin, the price tag and the look are not meeting my fancy at all. And really, it is hard to make a black bag tacky, but this bag to me is overly ornate and gaudy. Too much going on with the silver charms and front pockets and buckles. All in all,
christian louboutin wedges sale, I give it two thumbs down. Oh,
christian louboutin official, and the price really puts it in a different league, making me wonder if those of you look at it and tolerate it will not be sent into disgust after seeing the tag. Buy through Net A Porter for $$2,
christian louboutin size chart,680.

Mulberry Large Soho Bags

Mulberry Large Soho Bags

Mulberry has a preview of their Spring/Summer 2008 collection online, which has a new bag that I just love. There seems to be a lack of great mid-sized bags. I have the longest list of clutches that I adore and the longest list of large handbags that I yearn for, but the mid-sized bags either look too small,
christian louboutin clothing, oddly shaped,
christian louboutin court shoes, or just wrong. My problem is that most large bags that I carry,
blue christian louboutin shoes, I use to tote around. I would love a great mid-sized bag to put on my shoulder and actually have it fit and stay there,
christian louboutin sale saks, giving me use of both hands. Mulberry has added a twist on their Bayswater to a smaller version that may be just right. The Mulberry Large Soho Bags offer a soft scoop shape on this shoulder bag. The front features a large magnetic buckle closure with a tab. Another plus is the adjustable shoulder strap; so add as much or as little slack as you would like. Just like the Mulberry Basywater is available in plain leather and ostrich (seriously stunning purple ostrich!),
christian louboutin logo, so is the Soho Bag. They offer a chic coral ostrich Soho Bag which costs approximately $2,928. And in leather, there is both a chocolate and antique gold, costing $1,077.

Resort has arrived with the Miu Miu Fringed Linen Tote

To all of my fellow NYC peeps, I am sorry you are literally stuck in feet of snow. I hear a bit of it has kind of melted though. I started to feel guilty when I was complaining of the mid-50-degree and sunny weather we are having in South Florida, while you all are trapped indoors. And then I saw resort bags are on their way out and I started to suffer from seasonal-confusion. But get ready for resort bags, whether you are stuck in your house from the blizzard or not. With resort bags come resort materials, like linen.

Miu Miu is one of the first brands to release a linen bag for the upcoming resort time,
glitter christian louboutin, and I must admit upon first glance I found the Miu Miu Fringed Linen Tote to be sort of juvenile. I expect the heart tag dangling from a gold chain from a brand like Juicy Couture,
christian louboutin wedges on sale, but not Miu Miu.

The design is nothing extraordinary,
christian louboutin wiki, in fact it is a simple oversized tote shape. The edges feature fringed linen. And then there is this heart charm hanging from a chunky gold chain debacle. A heart charm does not always need to appear so young,
cheap christian louboutin heels, but something about this entire design is feeling very elementary to me. It could also be that linen is not one of my favorite materials on a handbag (or any item for that matter).

Honestly, I just am left with a lackluster feeling after seeing this bag. The hue is one of my favorite on linen, but it somehow feels so ‘meh’ to me when I look at it. And I want a fun resort bag; give me color or even a linen/leather combination. But this all over linen design is playing it too safe and it will get dirty, very dirty. However,
sample sale christian louboutin, if you love it, buy via Net-A-Porter for $895.
