With the Coach Pre-Fall 2016 collection, we’re not entirely sure that they’ve managed to pull this off. While the clean design lines and crisp shapes that coach is so well-known for are still very much there, they are for the most part hidden beneath a veritable bouquet of leather appliquÃ© cut-out flowers, patchwork, and colorful black background designs on pony hair which are reminiscent of a velvet Elvis painting at a flea market along route 66.
However, it isn’t all literal retro interpretation. There are still the beautiful flap bags with the brass turnlock closures that Coach has been making for as long as we can remember, this time updated with a sexy chain strap and done in texturized pebble leather. There are also some soft-sided pebble leather top handle satchels with detachable leather shoulder straps that will surely stand the test of time and look as good in ten years as they do today.
Iconic American handbag line Coach has given the fashion media an early-look at their pre-fall 2016 handbag collection, and we’re not exactly sure what to think. While there is absolutely no denying that the 60s and 70s trends have been dominating the runways for the past few seasons, most of the successful collections that have drawn heavily from these periods of reference (like Louis Vuitton ad Gucci) have managed to take design elements from these periods and turn them into modern interpretations of a recognizable retro inspiration.
To us, it is a collection festooned with misses, and a few very solid hits where the designers simply missed the canvas with the leather cutouts, rhinestones, and pony hair.
The Hermes Kelly bag is one of the most iconic handbags on the market. Famed for its craftsmanship, immediately recognizable style, and elusiveness in obtaining one, the Hermes Kelly bag is a true icon. Many women associate the Kelly with a formal look, opting for the Birkin if they fancy a more casual appearance or for less formal occasions. However, the Kelly is actually extremely versatile and can be used to complement a range of looks, outfits, and occasions. In this insights guide, we take a look at just how versatile this stunning bag is and how it can accompany you on any occasion.
Traditionally, the Hermes Kelly is seen as a formal bag due to the shape of the handle and the clasp. There are several ways to wear it depending on how formal the occasion. One of the most popular ways is to hold the handle in the palm of the hand with the clasp undone for easy access to files, your purse, or other contents of the bag. However, the Kelly bag also comes equipped with a shoulder strap, allowing you to keep your hands free while still maintaining the professional and chic appearance a Kelly bag affords.
Even though the Kelly boasts a stunning design on its own, it is also possible to make the bag more casual by styling it with your own personal embellishments. Simple additions can transform the Kelly from a smart, formal bag that one would wear to a business luncheon or meeting into a stylish, casual bag that one could wear with jeans and a casual jacket when meeting friends for dinner. Here are some great ways to style your Kelly bag.
Another way to use a scarf is by wrapping it fully around the handle. This is a great idea if the scarf contrasts the colors on the bag and can make the bag look completely different in an instant. You can try different colors, materials, and styles of scarfs to see which one suits you better when using this method. To wrap the scarf around the bag, start by tying it on one end of the handle. Then start to gently wrap the scarf around the remaining area before tying gently on the opposite side. You can wrap one scarf around on handle, one scarf around two handle, two scarfs intertwined around two handles, or two scarfs with one on each handle. The possibilities are endless!
While we refute the idea that leggings shouldn’t be worn beyond the confines of one’s own apartment, the age-old question of what to wear with leggings remains. On the one hand, you could go the athleisure route and pair them with sneakers and a sporty bomber, or on the other, you could dress them up for brunch or even work (yes, really) with some strategic layering.
They may not qualify as pants, perse, but they can sub in for skinny jeans on certain occasions when comfort is key—say, when getting on a five-hour flight, or running out of the house on a chilly Friday morning. For fall, you can’t go wrong layering a cozy, oversized sweater over a pair of black leggings, whether they’re leather, waxed cotton, or basic stretch spandex. Mesh-paneled styles have more of an athletic feel, so you may want to stick to wearing those on weekends with hoodies, bombers, and tees (even crop tops if you want to crib Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner‘s look)
Every new fashion season is important for both men and women alike; designers get to unveil their latest creations and there is always one of them that gets everybody’s attention. When it comes to men, they usually prefer the latest watches but women go for something a bit bigger, handbags. A new fashion season is all about the latest handbags for women and you can expect names like Gucci, Chanel, Prada and more to be under the spotlight.
The problem about buying a new handbag is not the lack of choices but finding that perfect one which makes you fall in love the first time you see it and which you will love at least until the season is over. That is what all the great designers have in common, they make luxury handbags that have something special about them, something that makes you want to own it. Of course, there isn’t much time to get that perfect handbag because if you friend already has one, you can just cut it off the list. As time is precious, you need to know the latest luxury handbags available on the market and you can do this by going to different stores and see what they have or you can just go online and visit fashion sites.
If perfection is priceless, you can’t expect luxury handbags to be cheap. The amount of money you are willing to spend on a new handbag is also very important when looking to have the latest accessories. Some can be quite expensive but as the price grows, the chances of someone else having one decrease, so if you want something a bit more exclusive, be ready to pay a lot of money.
When buying a luxury handbag you also have to think about what you will wear it with, what outfits will show it off. Of course, you can just buy the handbag you like and then just build your outfit around it; but this is never a sure thing because you might like how the handbag looks in the store but you don’t like how it goes with any outfits that you like. It is something to consider before spending money on something you may never use.
Finding the perfect luxury handbag is never easy and it requires a lot of window shopping but once you get it right, it makes it all worth; anyway, women like shopping and they like the search as much as the result.
What makes Hermes stand out compared to other brands? I’m gonna have to say it is the emphasis on the leather quality and the overall simplicity of the bag which oozes elegance. At least that’s what stands out to me. As you all know I have been a handbag lover for many years (since my teens) but I have never thought about owning a Hermes bag until very recently. Another reason why I’ve always hesitated to buy a replica Hermes is because it requires a pretty big investment (the really accurate replica Hermes bags are always over $1000). But I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase a 25cm Birkin (I love the smaller Hermes pieces) from replica hangbag which came recommended in an email from a blog reader.
Ok guys I’m gonna have to preface this post with one word: O.M.G. I have found possibly the best source for Hermes replicas ever. Now before we get to discussing the actual bag I want to say that Hermes is probably one of the most popular knockoffs people go after. Why? Because it is extremely expensive, and puts a dent into most people’s budgets. I mean if you think about it, you can get about 10-15 Louis Vuitton bags for the sticker price of 1 Hermes – that’s pretty crazy considering Louis Vuitton is already a fairly pricey luxury brand itself.
I purchased my bag in a natural tan color with gold hardware, and contrasting white stitching. The bag’s leather is amazing – apparently the import it in from Europe. The hardware is also very precise – it’s not real gold hardware (they state no replica company produces it with real gold hardware), but it’s anodized which is good enough. I’ve compared the bag to my friend Merry’s real Birkin (she has a big authentic Hermes collection – lucky gal), and the differences can’t be spotted by the naked eye.
Presenting the Hermes Herbag Zip Bag. Hermes Herbag Zip is a new version of the Herbag which has been discontinued. The newer version was released on 2009. It has gained popularity already as it looks like the iconic Kelly Bag. The Herbag Zip is made of canvas and hunter leather. It has a Kelly lock closure, and includes a removable zipped flat pouch inside. The bag has a zipped pocket outside. Available in three sizes, 31, 39 and the largest Cabine at 52cm.
This military blue Herbag is majestic – the kind that’s definitely minimalist, but commands attention. The piece has a zipped pocket on the back and removable zipped flat inside pocket, so you could store all your stuff with ease. Now that’s functionality and style combined!
This Storm Blue Officer canvas and H red Hunter cowhide piece is all sorts of wonderful, and is adorned with only the finest palladium-plated hardware. It also has a zipped rear pocket and a removable zipped flat inside pocket that’s sure to give organized divas more than their pretty penny’s worth.
The Hermes stamp is embossed in the leather, under the leather tab. It’s usually silver (see the above picture) and it should have a clean look, not too thin, not too thick. There is another stamp on the end of the strap, on one side.
The handles have to be broad and sturdy and they should be made from canvas. The hardware on the authentic Evelynes is silver colored and so should be the one on a good replica. The bag has no zippers. On the top, you can close it by clipping the leather tab from one site to the other.
All of these details I wrote about have to be checked before buying. My best advice for you would be to buy a bag from a website that has pictures of their own products. In this case, you could check the details in the photos and make sure they are right. Knowing how to spot a fake Hermes Evelyne bag will help you get a replica that’s difficult to spot. If your knock off has all the details in the right places, no one will know it’s not an authentic. I hope my posts are useful to you. If you have suggestions for what should I write next, let me know about it in the comments section.
Talking about casual, there’s another gorgeous Hermes replica bag. This Picotin is an older design, but still very trendy. Just like I mentioned before, the Hermes designs are timeless. The Picotin was inspired by the shape of a horse’s feeder. So, it’s a celebration of this brand’s origins. As many of you know, it has started as a fine equestrian leather goods supplier. This green Picotin bag is spacious, practical and very chic. You can use it to carry plenty of items in it.

Prada is synonymous with elegance. The family-owned, Italian label started out selling leather goods. But once granddaughter Miuccia took the helm, the brand transformed into the haute fashion house it is today. In 1985, they released their much-loved, classic Prada handbag. It was an instant favorite with its sleek lines, minimalistic aesthetic and top-notch materials. Since then, they’ve continued to deliver simple yet modern bags, like theSaffiano Tote, that up the sophistication of any look. Explore this timeless collection below.
If there’s one thing every girl knows is that a Prada bag will complete her outfit, look, and wardrobe. Leather workers, Mario and Martino Prada opened a shop in 1913; however the company was revolutionized by their granddaughter Muiccia in 1970. What began with the success of the classic nylon tote, revolved into a shoe line to a ready to wear line. Today, the Prada insignia is recognized as the go to brand for style, class and Italian sensibility.
