Now that fashion month is over, we have to say it was pretty amazing. From New York to Paris and parts in between, designers presented some of the freshest, cleanest, and most creative looks in years. It was as if they had fire lit under their seat and they created like nothing before. We were wowed and surprised show after show. Editors from many publications were happily surprised as well. Instagram snaps were uploaded at a higher rate than every before from the shows. Even designers were updating their Instagram followers with behind the scenes pictures. It was truly a fantastic fashion month and we are still brimming with excitement.
There was a lot of color in abundance this season on the runways. You would have thought a flower shop exploded in many of these design studios and it was absolutely glorious. Who doesn't love intricate details from the petals of flowers? And indeed many of these beautiful petals were inspiration for several new designs shown on various runways this season. The colors popped on the fabrics and the craftsmanship was out of this world; everything collided in the best possible way. Sort of like life, when everything comes together in the best way possible, it's simply amazing. There are many editors that cannot wait to wear what they saw at fashion month.
Accessories also proved to be a huge success this fashion month. In New York, London, Milan, and Paris, accessories exploded in the best way possible. We say new beautiful leather clutches in bold colors; leather satchels that harkened back to a previous era, and totes that will take you from season to season. I know everyone is often focused on clothes during fashion month, but this time I was totally transfixed by all of the amazing handbags. These aren't simply normal bags, but they are glorious and luxurious designer handbags. The sort of handbags that will take you through all parts of your life for years to come. We all want a handbag that will take us from work to drinks and dinner afterwards. We also want luxurious handbags that will last us for decades. Simply because a bag costs several thousand dollars does not necessarily it will last a while. A high price tag does not alway denote high quality craftsmanship. And let's face it, if we are paying thousands of dollars for an amazing handbag, it should definitely be well crafted.
I’ve already pre-ordered several handbags that caught my eye. And because I placed my order before manufacturing, one handbag will be made of a very special grey leather just for me. I love custom pieces that fit easily into my wardrobe. When you own a custom piece, it’s also nice knowing that no one else will be carrying the exact same handbag. Fashion month may be over, but we are still talking about it. No doubt the handbags were a major focal point in each city. Keep your eyes on this space. You will be seeing a lot of major designer handbags right here and I promise they will not disappoint. Fashion changes and so do accessories, but the handbags we recently saw are timeless and you will no doubt want to own at least one of them.
