Is Alexander Wang's New Bag Inspired By QVC?

We’ve always thought the idea, and I’m stressing the word idea here, behind interchangeable bags, the QVC handbags that come with different covers to change the look and style of the bag, was essentially a good one. Who doesn’t want two bags for the price of one? Unfortunately when it comes to execution and style, it’s clear interchangeable and cool are two words destined to never meet in the world of handbags.

Redefining The Shape of Jewelry

Jewelry doesn’t get any bolder, stronger and in-your-face than the avant-garde pieces by Giuliana Mancinelli Bonafaccia. The young Italian jewelry designer who studied architecture and home design incorporates her sculptural point of view to her edgy hand-crafted collection. The Rome-based designer works with uncoventional materials like the chemical compound ruthenium black to play with texture and add a stricking lift to her pieces.

Hat Du Jour: The Baseball Cap

If you’ve recently spent anytime on street-style blogs, chances are you’ve noticed that baseball caps are popping up on style-setters’ heads from NY to Paris, and everywhere in between. The baseball cap is the new sought-after headgear in fashion circles. The off-duty hat has been getting the high-fashion treatment since designers like Kenzo and Karen Walker featured it in their Spring 2012 collections.

COVET: Gucci Lace-Up Tall Boot

The knee high-boot is fall’s comeback kid. Once a star player in every woman’s wardrobe, the knee-high boot was swiftly demoted to the back of the closet when the ankle bootie came around. We’d pull them out on occasion, but let’s face it: while it may be a classic shoe, our attention has been focused on shorter styles.

It Takes A Village To Design A JADEtribe Bag

JADEtribe’s accessory designer Kimberly Hartman spends a lot of her time traveling. This summer alone the New York based and Texas-born Hartman was in Marrakesh working on her first ready-to-wear collection, attended market meetings in L.A., spent weekends in Montauk, Long Island, stayed in Thailand for a month working with her weavers and sewers to fabricate her signature boho handbags, and she also managed to squeeze in a trip to visit friends in Spain and Ibiza.
