Prada Saffiano Leather Mini Sound Flap Bag

Other Brands

Prada-Saffiano-Flap-Top-Mini-Flap-Bag-2

Okay, the Prada Saffiano Lux Tote, one of the most coveted bags in fashion. It’s leather, structure and fame are the exact formula needed to make any woman melt. We know that.

Prada is known for its simplicity, have you ever spotted one of their latest bags in crazy prints and ‘oversized logo’s’. Nahh, leave that to Miu Miu, the sister company of Prada.

But what if they decide to do something crazy, like… striping the Saffiano Lux Tote and then re-make it into a Flap Bag. Oh yeah, I am talking about a bag that can be worn on your shoulder. Presenting the Prada Mini Sound Flap Bag in Saffiano Leather.

Not too sophisticated and not too simple, just like your cup of tea, not too sweet and not too bitter. And because of its easiness, the Mini Sound Flap Bag can be worn in almost all occasions; you can go from day to night, from work to club. The secret lies in the leather, the saffiano is as strong as a rock and only Prada can manufacture it.

The silver hardware matches to the beautiful color of your choice. It comes with two detachable leather shoulder straps, one is 43 cm long and the other is 105 cm long. The logo is embossed on the clasp and it features a snap-lock closure on the front. There’s even an inside pocket crafted on the flap, just for the convenient.

Measuring 24 x 13.5 x 3.5 (L x H x W) in cm, priced at $1,930 USD or €1350 euro’s, at Prada e-store.

Coach’s First Collection From Stuart Vevers is Now Available Online–What Do You Think?

Other Brands

Coach Dakotah Fringe Bag

Coach is in the middle of a major reinvention, and now the first full collection from creative director Stuart Vevers has arrived for purchase. The line is inspired by the American West and traditional workwear, and the bags have a slightly rough-around-the-edges feel that will be new to many of the brand’s longtime fans. Naturally, the collection includes a bunch of brand new handbags.

The two most notable additions to the Coach handbag lineup are the Rhyder and Dakotah lines. The Rhyder is a pieced-together satchel that comes in a variety of sizes, and although it’s received the lion’s share of Coach’s marketing push, the bag often feels overworked and over-designed. The Dakotah, on the other hand, is the star of the show; it feels natural and uncomplicated, even when decorated with long fringe, and its leather is thick and expensive-feeling in person.

It’s important that these bags feel expensive, because Coach is also making a push to increase its prices and expand its offerings into a full-scale premium-contemporary lifestyle brand. The best argument in favor of that move is the brand’s lush outerwear; although it’s not our main concern, I’ve included a couple of pieces of it alongside a selection of the fall bags below. It’s too good to skip entirely, even if it’s not a bag.

Zimmermann Hits the NYFW Runway

Other Brands

Is it just us, or is Zimmermann one of the highlights of New York Fashion Week? While, yes, we are major fans of Phillip Lim, and Alexander Wang will always get our vote (and credit card details), there's something so feminine about every single piece in the Zimmermann collection. Plus, there's the little fact that this big name was Made In Australia. 

While we admittedly prefer having the homegrown label on the local schedule, Zimmermann's presence in the US is growing by the minute. "We've always had a really great response in the US," designer Nicky Zimmermann told POPSUGAR Australia. And if you need proof that this label is one of our biggest exports, remember this: Zimmermann recently expanded their flagship US store to a bigger, better boutique, located on Mercer Street. The NYC store is Zimmermann's biggest worldwide, and is in pretty impressive company, nestled amongst other big names like A.P.C, Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang.

So what sets Zimmermann apart from the dozens of fledgling fashion brands trying to make it big in New York? "Our aesthetic is very different to what other designers do in the US. We’re obviously influenced a lot by where we come from and people seem to enjoy our approach to colour and print and the optimistic approach to our collections. I think since we've had our own stores in New York and LA over the last few years that it’s really helped paint more of a picture of what we do and what Zimmermann is about," Nicky said.

Front row at this season's show was a cool round-up of Australia's most stylish women, with Lara Bingle, Nicole Trunfio, Emma Lung and Harper's Bazaar US executive editor Laura Brown keen to get close to the action on the runway. But, Nicky would happily do a little switch with the front row: "I just wish I could be front row at one of our shows for once. As a designer you spend all this time and energy working on a collection and you never get to see the show how everyone else sees it," she joked. 

Nicky says the collection, titled 'Cloud Stompers', is brighter than your ordinary Fall line: "It's very textural, colour and prints are very rich and there is a lot of intricate detailing combining metals and fabric." Scroll on to see what this iconic Aussie export delivered for Fall 2014 (that's Spring for us Down Under).

NYFW – CHLOE GIRL

When the temperatures are rising during fashion week, the last thing you want to be dressed in is all black so I opted for pastel tones in this Chloé ensemble. First came this romantic ruffle blouse that I paired with a high waisted Chloé leather shorts, then I needed some color so I threw on a pretty blue blazer also from Chloé. song-of-style-chloe-blazer-christian-louboutin-charity-bag-ruffle-blousesong_of_style_chloe_leather_shorts_christian_louboutin_charity_bag

I finished the look off with this mini spiked Christian Louboutin bag and my Gianvito Rossi PVC pumps. song_of_style_chloe_leather_shorts_louboutin_charity_bagsong-of-style-chloe-top-lace-skirt

Chloé does feminine pieces really well without making you feel too girly. This blush tone eyelet top is another piece from Chloé that I love so I paired it with a Keepsake lace skirt. The cute Minnie sandals are from Oscar Tiye. song-of-style-chloe-top-lace-skirt-oscar-tiyeProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

NYFW DAY TWO IN ZIMMERMANN

Other Brands

song-of-style-nyfw-zimmermann-off-the-shoulder-dress

Zimmermann is one of those labels that I keep falling in love with season after season. I first saw this dress in a beautiful sea foam color come down the runway early this year and immediately fell in love with the neckline (there is a top version too.) Initially I was going to style this dress with lace up heels but I needed to spare my feet since I knew I was going to wear heels for the rest of the fashion week. I really like the gold metal bow detail on theseZimmermann loafers which make them quite fancy! I’m definitely going to be styling this dress in different ways so I can wear it more often because it’s so good!song-of-style-zimmermann-off-the-shoulder-dress-2aimee-song-dani-song-new-york-fashion-week

My sister is wearing a cool bomber jacket from Cameo and Alejandra G. sandals. song-of-style-zimmermann-off-the-shoulder-dressMy stylist friend Sarah Toshiko knows how much I love gold so she found this clutch for me and I’m so, so in love! It’s from an Italian designer called Benedetta Bruzziches and it’s been the perfect accessory for any outfit!song-of-style-zimmermann-off-the-shoulder-dress-gold-sunglasses

Heritage Auctions’ Next Sale Includes What May Be the World’s Rarest Hermès Bag

Other Brands

Hermes 30cm Matte Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Birkin with Diamond Hardware

Heritage Auctions already holds the record for selling the most expensive handbag of all time, a diamond-encrusted Birkin that sold for more than $200,000 in 2011. With the house’s upcoming Luxury Accessories Signature Auction, it may well break its own record with an ultra-rare, incredibly covetable Hermès Himalayan Crocodile Birkin, finished with diamond-encrusted hardware.

The Himalayan Birkin isn’t the only extremely rare bag that Heritage is offering to collectors; the auction will also include a very limited edition Louis Vuitton Sac Fusion, which includes an ultrathin LCD screen that plays a video by artist Fabrizio Plessi behind the bag’s logo cutout. It’s one of only 88 ever made, and it was originally only available to VIP customers at the brand’s Hong Kong flagship, where Plessi’s work adorns the store.

The auction, which will take place in Beverly Hills on September 23, features the much-sought-after Himalayan Birkin as well as a host of other covetable handbags from the best handbag brands in the world, including Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Hermès. Among the 480 pieces available are numerous exotic and limited-edition bags and accessories; for most shoppers and collectors, an auction like this one represents the best (and maybe only) chance to add one of these rare handbags to their closets.

On the other hand, if you’re looking to add a leather or everyday bag to your wardrobe, the auction will also offer a large selection of them from top brands at prices that present an excellent value to buyers when compared to retail.

Below, we’ve included a selection of our favorite pieces from the auction. You can also head over to Heritage auctions to view the full assortment and find out how to bid.
