What’s In Your Bag?

Some say the eyes are the window to the soul, but when it comes to women, I’d argue that it’s what’s in her purse that offers the real clues as to who she really is. Every so often, we’d like to delve into the depths of one woman’s bag and look at what she can’t…

Skull Purses: Love It Or Hate It?

Sure, you’ve got a lot floating around inside your head: the boyfriend, the job, the what-the-hell-am-I-going-to-wear-tomorrow. Now, you can stuff everything into your skull — literally. Belgian designer Natalia Brilli, who toiled under Oliver Theyskens making accessories at Rochas, created this unique line of handbags that are in the shape of human noggins. Like Theyskens,…

Haute Germs: Are Handbags Making Us Sick?

With all the recent swine flu hoopla, even the most hygienically-lax of us have begun giving second thoughts to our cleanliness—soaping up for at least fifteen seconds, coughing into our elbows, and using antibacterial gel every time we enter a new room. There are endless opportunities to sterilize and re-sterilize, and it seems that we… / June 21, 2009

Crave: Clare Vivier Bags (Win One!)

Aretha may have crooned about a chain of fools, but she probably didn’t consider what a love fool one would become after seeing Vivier’s chain-print tote bags. Made from French linen and hemp handles, each purse features a printed navy chainlink design, a thoughtful detail that transforms the concept of totes from casual to chic.

Lulu Guinness Creates The First Moving Handbag

Lulu Guinness wanted to make sure her 20th anniversary as a designer was special, so she established the Lulu Guinness Scholarship to help young designers explore a career of accessory design at the London College of Fashion.

Is It A Shoe? A Bag? Both?

This bag was made for walking. Voilà the heel-bag by Azumi & David. The question is, what shoes do you wear? How are they supposed to compete with that? [High Snobette]…

Rolls-Royce Adds Girly Feature To New Concept Car

We’re not sure whether to be insulted or overjoyed by Rolls-Royce’s new concept car. The 200EX features a backseat pop-out purse holder that senses when you put down a bag and holds it in place. We hate that the car company thinks women are all about handbags, but, you know what, we are.

The Keybag

Writing an email, text, or memoir aren’t the only things you can do with a keyboard. You can let one hold all your junk and accessorize your outfit. That is, if you have a Keybag designed by João Sabino. Each Keybag is made from 393 keys or key fragments arranged in a random, unique order…

Style On The Street: Across Marks The Spot

Now that it’s getting a wee bit warmer, you can stop piling on layers of sweaters and coats and finally show the world the cute clothes you’ve got on underneath. We think spring is an excellent time to change purses, as well. While you probably wouldn’t want to wear a cross-body handbag over a puffy…

Crave: Sabina Whipstitch Leather Satchel

We don’t carry less in the spring just because we’re wearing less, so we need a stylish bag to hold the whole kit and caboodle this season. The handy compartments and pockets in this satchel will keep us organized day into night. And the not-too-bright yellow will surprisingly go with quite a bit in our…

Quickies!: Natasha Richardson’s Cause Of Death Revealed

The New York City medical examiner has ruled Natasha Richardson’s death an accident. The report said she died from blunt impact trauma to the head, which caused internal brain bleeding. It’s so scary that something like this can happen and you don’t realize you’re seriously injured until it’s too late. [People]
Russell Brand definitely know…

Crave: Liz Claiborne Broadway North/South Shopper

We’re trying to be good about bringing our lunch to work (to save money) and carry a reusable bag with us to the grocery store (to save the environment), but our current handbag just can’t keep up with us. The sign that we needed to upgrade came last Tuesday, when our strawberry yogurt tumbled out…

Crave: Ivana Helsinki Scarves & Purses

For some, “handmade” conjures up images of poorly constructed crafts. For Ivana Helsinki, it means avant-garde prints from Finland. An oversized coin purse is adorned with a flock of birds. A silk scarf features hearts and daggers. [$84-$160,]…

Crave: Klein Canvas Tool Bag

OK, so call us crazy, but this tool bag would make the chicest handbag because it has the same classic shape as some high-end purses, it’s just more unexpected. Made of rugged, durable canvas and moisture-resistant vinyl, this tool bag would make the perfect everyday purse because its natural and cognac colors go with pretty…

Our Bags Are Time Suckers

The average woman spends about four and a half minutes every day rummaging through her bag, according to a research by a company called Bagatidy. This comes out to about one full day a year spent searching through pens, loose papers, extra clothes, and whatever other crap you’re lugging around. We think this is entirely…
