Bags & Fashion

Pleased to meet Dionysus. Not the god of wine, but the new It bag of this season. Alessandro Michele, the designer of Gucci, presented this bag during the fashion show for Fall/Winter 2015. It is the perfect blend of seventies glamour and relaxed luxury, somewhat posh as well as eccentric. It comes it two sizes and each bag has either the suede or python trim on the flap...

Many high-end fashion designers presented this trend on the catwalk. We go all white in the summer of 2016. Balenciaga loves the casual shopper model with many fringes while Dior carries the perfect duffle bag that looks very elegant and smooth. Ralph Lauren and Miu Miu combine the top handle trend with this one. The bags en blanc will be the taking over the streets the coming season, just like...

Like the beautiful bloggers Rebecca of Raspberry & Rouge and Negin Mirsalehi prove, round is the way to handle things during Spring/Summer 2016. It is the new trend to follow and the bags by respectively Florian London and 3.1 Phillip Lim have the perfect circle on top that both clarify what I'm talking about. The big names in the fashion industry, like the fashion designers Miu Miu, Tods and Gucci also demonstrated on the catwalk...

On Monday I was invited to celebrate the 10th edition of MINT on the Modefabriek in Amsterdam, the b2b platform for sustainable fashion & lifestyle at the biannual fair during which different labels present their new collections to retailers, press, stylists and other professionals. Besides the celebrations I was very anxious to check out the new collection of the eco-friendly fashion brands. And when I started my round, my eyes were immediately drawn...

Be careful now; you might get hungry after seeing these food shaped bags. We continue the quirky trend on a whole new level. We all love food, especially when it looks good. And this season you can actually carry some real #foodporn. Kate Spade teamed up with the famous Magnolia Bakery and created a very good looking cupcake clutch and a delicious slice of a big cake. And Betsey Johnson...

Now that the 24rd edition of Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam has come to an end, it is time to share the best bags of MBFWA 2016. Not the ones that I have spotted on the catwalk, but those of the fashionista's that I met last weekend. I can tell you, it was a hard choice as most of the women have an incredible taste for fashion. You will note that there...

After you have been to FashionWeek three days in a row, you'll have seen a lot of beautiful pieces and you'll have many reasons to be excited. For me, it all started with the amazing show of the Moroccan designer Said Mahrouf who was inspired by nature. Afterwards Claes Iversen presented his couture and ready to wear collection with the sixties in mind. The last show on Friday...

The box bag is the season's new handbag. Louis Vuitton made clear that it was the trend to go with in Fall/Winter 2016 and by looking at the catwalk of Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana we know that this style will continue in Spring/Summer 2016. It is a rectangular shaped bag with a hard case design. It might remind you of your lunch box, a little treasure chest or a trunk bag that...

Yes!! MercedesBenz FashionWeek Amsterdam kicked off! Well, it already did last Friday, but I went to my first event on Monday. A very special one that forms part of the OFF SCHEDULE-program. It was called Fashion & Music, during which Anne van den Boogaard presented her collection, Love is the answer, at the Volkshotel together with the music artist Jett Rebel. She was inspired by David Bowie with his destructive love songs...

So, now that I have found my perfect wedding dress, it is time to complete the wedding look with the perfect accessories like the jewellery, shoes and the bag of course! However, not everyone agrees on whether the bride should carry a bag. Because - on one hand - she doesn't necessarily need a bag on her wedding day as she doesn't have to bring a wallet (she already paid for everything), her keys (as...
