Top on my list, is the new, Proenza Schouler PS11 handbag, elegant, classic and cool, the designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCoullough, did it again. Two years ago, they launched their first handbag line, PS1, inspired by a classic satchel, which had been modernized into a timeless version and it was an instant hit. This season, the PS11, especially, in black is selling out fast in stores all over the world. Their bags will transient into seasons because they are low key, under the radar, something like a secret language among women who know what is stylish.

 CHLOE Shoulder Handbags Spring-Summer 2012
Chloe handbags CollageCHLOE is the ultimate go-to label for uptown girls. The French label was founded in 1952, by Gaby Aghion, who spotted a void in the market and the notion of Prêt-à-Porter was born. Chloe’s, current creative director is British designer, Hannah MacGibbon. She launched her first collection in 2009. Her designs are refined with easy going glamour that captures the style of our time. The new  must-have, the super lux ladylike leather Darla tote, is a wonderful choice that can lend your look a timelessly sophisticated edge. This elegant style is the perfect complement to fall’s trends and will give every look a luxurious lift. Although, it’s timelessly chic and luxurious in all colors, my favorite is the terracotta red which works well with the understated color palette of this season’s outfits.

Gucci Green Snake

Next in my list Gucci one of the world’s most iconic fashion houses with a long history of ultra glamorous aesthetic. In the past, stylish women, like Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy were often captured by photographers wearing them. According to Business Week magazine, Gucci, has generated revenue over $ 2.5 billion and has climbed to 41st position in the magazine’s annual 2009 “Top Global 100 Brands” chart. Also, it is the biggest-selling Italian brand in the world. Creative director, designer Frida Giannini has managed to maintain and evolve the brand’s signature glossy sophistication. And I have to say, I found, more than one structured handbag, I really liked.

 Have a lovely Day!!!
