You haven’t missed the CR Fashion book’s tumblr right? I love the CR site and pretty much visit it every day since Roitfeld and her team cover everything from editorial fashion to the latest Daft Punk album and the Cannes Film Festival. In her editorial cover Carine puts a twist on wardrobe essentials. With model Xiao Wen, Roitfeld shows one of the most classical pieces of all time, a Chanel bag, in seven different ways. I love the fact that no matter what style you have, you can wear this timeless piece to it – from punk to hippie. The editorial is photographed by Max von Gumppenberg and Patrick Bienert, and styled by Carine herself.
I really like this black canvas tote in woven linen and black calf leather from Little Liffner. It’s the perfect bag for the summer. Canvas is such a beautiful material to combine with leather. The combination up-lifts the most simple summer looks and makes them just perfect. This tote, ‘The Tote all-mighty’ is also available in croco-embossed and calf skin leather and you find them both here.
Oh, I want this one! Perfect carry all for an everyday use. Go get it here! From Balenciaga.
For this spring I have got this huge cravings of getting myself a classic bag. A leather piece that becomes your best investment in your wardrobe for an everyday use. I have been crushing on the model ‘Peek-a-Boo’ from Fendi, I think it is a really cool bag, quite unique, and just the perfect size as well (for me at least). When it comes to bags this year, I have seen a lot of fashionistas hitting a more subtle and classic style. All kinds of models from Valentino, Prada and of course, Hermès. Another famous fashion house that are up and coming among the hottest profiles in business is Dior. These leather pieces has, at least for me, been seen on a more immature crowd. But I kind of been digging them lately. Above from the top left: Fendi ‘Peek-a-boo’ in black, Valentino, Prada and Fendi. Underneath: Dior in orange and navy, Hermès Kelly bag and a classy Prada in black leather.
I picked out some of my favourites bags from the Céline Spring and Summer leather goods collection of 2013. Even though I am a tiny bit tired of some models, I totally dig the new clutches and the beautiful colours. As I mentioned before, light yellow is an huge trend for spring as well as the baby blue colours and hues. The one that really rocks this collection is the black fold-over shoulder bag with gold details.
