Glad It’s Still Here: Gucci Signature Duffle

Other Brands

We love prints of course. But embossed monogram is like forever.gucci-signature-leather-duffle


I’m enjoying Gucci’s printed bags. But it’s a bit overwhelming if you spend too much time looking at their line. And while season after season we continue seeing printed GG Supreme coated canvas pieces, I was worried at the back of my mind for the classics. And I’m  happy to find, as of January 2017, there is a resurgence of the embossed monogram in the Gucci house.gucci-signature-leather-duffle-side

Unlike the rounder counter parts, this is a more rectangular duffle bag, and definitely more structured. It has a nice wide zipper so you can fill it up with more things as you fly off to some well deserved vacation, with all of the bag’s Gucci goodness.gucci-signature-leather-duffle-top

I’m so happy to see monograms embossed on leather, and that they are not going away any time soon. Lovely, aren’t they?

BOY CHANEL CUBA PINK GREEN BAG

Other Brands

Boy-Chanel-Cuba-Pink-Green-Bag

We didn’t know that pink and green would make such a lovely combination until recently when Chanel released its Boy Chanel Cuba Pink Green Bag.

With such a unique take on the classic Chanel Boy Flap Bag, it’s as if this Cuba Pink Green Bag is such a breath of fresh air. Chanel definitely got out of the box and took unconventional ideas to heart with its Cruise 2017 Collection, which features the Cuban culture.

Feminine yet tough, this is one thing that best describes this newest darling. As you can see, it is still sporting the usual thick diamond quilting but this time around, it has an almost alternating splash of pink and green colors. The style mostly looks like military or jungle inspired in our eyes. The CC clasp logo and the golden-chained strap are still there.

Prices and sizes aren’t yet available but we’ll keep you posted. So what do you think? Is it a glam?

Hermès Verrou Chaine Bag

Other Brands

I’m not an Hermès girl. I understand why people like Hermès, and I fully acknowledge that its bags are, on average, objectively the best in the world when it comes to major brands. They’re beautiful, luxurious and impeccably crafted, but my personal style tends to be more casual and streetwear-based, which doesn’t jibe with most of the Hermès aesthetic. I’m more of a Balenciaga or Proenza Schouler type, and lately some of Gucci‘s bags really hit home with me, too. The new Hermès Verrou Chaine Bag, though, has managed to bridge my mental gap.

This bag has existed as a strap-free clutch since circa 2010, but as far as I can tell, the chain-strap Verrou is a new addition for Spring 2017. (All the mentions of it on the Internet start with the brand’s spring preview, anyway, but you can never quite be sure with Hermès, mostly because they don’t want you to be.) Earlier this week, the design popped up for sale on the brand’s website for the first time, and it had me at hello.

If someone said the words “super luxe bathroom stall slide lock” to me, I wouldn’t have necessarily be able to picture a handbag situation in which that design would work, or even when someone might have tried it, but here we are. 2017 is only 19 days old and it’s already wild as hell.

The bag’s asymmetrical front flap helps showcase the refined industrial lock, and along with the bag’s delicate chain, it’s the only real design feature. The lock is large and peculiar enough to carry the bag on its own, though, and it fits well with the bag’s right angles and minimal finishes. Pink wouldn’t be my first choice, but the bag also comes in grey suede (and likely several other colors that simple aren’t listed on the Hermès website for sale). I’m in.

DIOR LOGO BAGS

Other Brands

A-Closer-Look-Dior-Logo-Bags

Dior bags are one of the next best things in life and if you are on a hunt for the latest ‘it’ bag to own, then take a look at these Dior precious bags. Introducing the Dior Logo Bags, which are set to launch anytime this year.

Simple, monochromatic, yet with an elegant touch, these Dior Logo Bags are predicted to be the trendiest bag to date in the history of Dior. What is apparent upon taking a look at it is the DIOR logo in golden metallic color.

The size is also just right, a perfect companion for days when you feel like strolling at the park or running errands on a Saturday morning. This bag can easily hold all your daily essentials such as your phone, coin purse, mirror, and your go-to lipstick. The strap also add a touch of functionality to it since you can wear it over the shoulder or cross body.

It’s the first-time ever that the fashion house designed such style – bags with medium-sized or large ‘vivid’ DIOR logo on the front, it’s almost like flaunting. Usually Dior bags features a gorgeous ‘charm with letters of the brand’s logo, which looks completely different.

So do you think these bags will become as famous as the Lady Dior Bag?

Introducing My Lady Dior: the New Customizable Dior Bag

Other Brands

While some people want to add trendy pieces to their accessory collection, the majority of handbag enthusiasts I talk to want to add key pieces that will stand the test of time. Few bags manage to become fashion icons without also feeling overexposed, but the Lady Dior has done exactly that: it has the understated beauty of a timeless bag without the ubiquity that makes some designs tiresome. It is, in a word, elegant.

Lady Dior Bag in Gold-Tone Grained Leather - $3,450

LADY DIOR BAG IN GOLD-TONE GRAINED LEATHER – $3,450

For Cruise 2017, Dior added a new size to its Lady Dior lineup: the My Lady Dior. Not only is this bag precisely what was missing, size-wise, but also, the My Lady Dior can be personalized by adding your favorite Lucky Badges to the strap of your bag. The customizable strap allows for three badges and there are plenty of options to choose from to adorn the long adjustable leather strap.

Dior Lucky Badges

DIOR LUCKY BADGES. CUSTOMER CHOOSES THREE BADGES UPON PURCHASING THE MY LADY DIOR BAG.
ADDITIONAL LUCKY BADGES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT $40 EACH.

There are so many reasons why this is the perfect size Lady Dior Bag. Dior already offers a Micro, Mini, Medium and Large, all which have dimensions that don’t change drastically as you step up from size to size. But sometimes, even the slightest change makes a bag just right, and that’s the case with the new My Lady Dior. With dimensions of 20 x 17 x 9 cm (7.9 x 6.7 x 3.5 in), this bag fills a gap in the lineup. I’m always looking for a bag that is compact but not too petite, and that is precisely what this one offers. On top of it, the smaller size calls for a long shoulder strap, and Dior offers just that with this bag. As the strap is adjustable, you can either carry the bag cross-body on your hip for hands-free use, over one shoulder or by hand with the strap outside. Because of the size and the long shoulder strap, this bag transitions ideally from day to night and will easily become a wardrobe staple.

Dior Black Lady Dior

MY LADY DIOR BAG IN BLACK LAMBSKIN – $3,450.
STRAP CUSTOMIZED WITH DIOR LUCKY BADGE, SUNNY BEE LUCKY BADGE AND HASHTAG LUCKY BADGE.

The customizable shoulder strap is an integral part of this bag, and it’s also the aspect which immediately lured me in. The ability to add three Lucky Badges to the strap matches with the Dior aesthetic perfectly. This bag stands out and adds a fun touch to the Lady Dior look while still remaining perfectly in line with Dior’s feminine, classic appeal. Mr. Dior was known to be very superstitious and believed strongly in luck and signs, so each Lucky Badge coincides with the connection between luck and Dior.

I love finding out deeper meaning behind fashion pieces. Here are a few of my favorite badges and the significance behind them:

Bee: Symbol of collective work, connected to flowers. The bee was an historic French symbol under Napoleon’s reign and a nod to Christian Dior’s love of the garden.

Dior Blue Badge

BLUE CANNAGE LUCKY BADGE ON MY LADY DIOR BAG IN SILVER-TONE GRAINED LEATHER – $3,450

Badge: Cannage code featured on the Napoleon III chairs in Dior Haute Couture salons. First seen in the Summer 2014 collection, the badge represents the codes and stories of the house. It is a symbol of belonging, of being a Dior woman and a member of the Dior Tribe.

DIOR LUCKY BADGES ON MY LADY DIOR BAG IN BLACK LAMBSKIN

In addition to those, there are many more fun symbols and every letter of the alphabet to create a truly unique and personalized bag. Along with over 40 Lucky Badges, the bag comes in a variety of colors to choose from.

Another aspect I haven’t discussed is the ease of use for this bag. While some of the Lady Dior bags have a zipper closure at the top, the My Lady Dior has an easy-to-access flap top. The flap holds all of your things inside but also allows you to easily enter the bag without the hassle of a stubborn zipper. The interior is lined in leather, often in a different but complementary hue.

If you’re like me, the Lady Dior has always been a bag that you’ve loved and admired. But now I feel like Dior has created the perfect addition to make the bag’s feel a bit more youthful and casual. I love the idea of customizing this bag to be mine and speak to me without it losing any of its timeless appeal. The perfect, slight changes to the Lady Dior Bag have made all the difference, and if you’ve been looking for the right size and version to speak to you, it has now arrived.
