Speaking of Luxury Lust, I am completely lusting after MCM’s Ivana Patent Bowler Bag in fuchsia from the SS13 Sunshine Nomad collection. If this isn’t luxury, then I don’t know what is. The bag is gorgeous! I mean look at the straps and the gold detailing. If you read the blog, you have to know how much I love patent leather. Patent leather cleans easily and is perfect for those drab rainy days. Well you won’t be drab while carrying the Ivana Patent from MCM. Photo from MCM.
Have you heard of or seen MCM bags and their other fine leather goods? I will admit. When I first started seeing the brand on the arms of fashion industry insiders and celebrities last year, I wondered who, what, when, where, and why? I wasn’t very familiar with the brand at all so I did a little snooping around. Soon I saw the brand in magazines, the internet, and vintage photos of rappers from the 80s. Then I vaguely remembered seeing the brand as a child.
Cynthia Rowley’s new Spring 2011 handbags are to die for. I am really feeling the Charlotte Frame Shoulder bag in Coral. I think coral is going to be color of spring and summer again just like last year because it is a great color that works on all skin tones. Which purse is your favorite? They are available now on the Cynthia Rowley website.
For Fall 2010, Tinsley designed a selection of modern silhouettes imbued with stylistic influences from the 1980s, all reminiscent of early rock glitz. The collection is crafted from soft leathers with silver metallic hardware, and includes five glam silhouettes infused with lingerie, lace and corsets. All products will be available at the Samantha Thavasa boutique on Madison Avenue and samathathavasausa.com.
All the bags are named after 80s rock bands like Metallica and Def Leopard. All the bags are over $200. The Chanel inspired White Snake and Poison bags are $350 and $295. I think my favorite is the Poison bag because it comes in tan, blue, and black. You can also wear it with a number of things.
Kate Spade has one of the most fun and cuteable fall lines out. Everything is so colorful and 50s chic. One of their new bags is really amazing. It is a great bag with lots of space inside and looks great with jeans or a dress! The Five Points Camille comes in Tangerine,Antquebrnz, and Graphite. The bag is $475. I won’t lie, that is expensive but it is a good quality bag.
