Something was definitely in the air this week, because we found an abundance of Louis Vuitton bags on our Instagram feed; we’re certainly not complaining! You know what they say: the heart wants what the heart wants, and it’s clear that our Instagram followers’ hearts are smitten over LV.
For this winter, Valentino’s new bag Chain Shoulder Bag gets a new look and comes in black and white stripes. The shape is the same as the popular Rockstud Flap with studs on the side and a few on the front. We love how sophisticated this bag and the studs add a rock and roll edge. The teeny bag is a great for the evening and the stripes make a basic outfit stand out.
I never thought a flat bag would appeal to me. After all, structure and interesting details are both literally and figuratively what give an accessory depth. But after lugging one heavy bag after another dangling with silly nonsense, I found myself seeking a sleek bag that packs well, is easy to store, and won’t cause my shoulders to slump in awkward discomfort for the summer. Conveniently enough, Guillaume Henry had exactly the same idea in mind. His latest design for the House ofNina Ricci, the Irrisor tote, is about as simple and clean as a bag can get. And lightweight to boot. Elongated handles and shape with slightly curved edges, the classic tote gets a modern yet feminine update. In comparison to fur balls, eye balls, and monsters (all of which I still adore), this is a pleasantly sophisticated alternative. But is it practical? Mais, oui! I tested out all three sizes of Nina Ricci’s new shape and discovered endless possibilities for the most versatile tote of the season. Here’s how I’ll be carrying each size…
The lightweight medium size fits my iPhone and MacBook perfectly. It’s like a laptop sleeve with handles. There’s also an interior pocket so that my iPhone won’t get scratched banging on the MacBook (Yes, I think about these things). Dimensions: 12″ w x 15” h. From $850 and up here..
The small size just begs to be taken out on the town on casual summer nights when your crystal-embellished hard case clutch feels awkward. Walking into a party with a brightly colored flat bag swinging on your arm or shoulder shows that you’re cocktail savvy, a quality that gives you the ability to roam around with rosé and hors d’oeuvres in hand all night (both of which are essentials, of course). More about styling this bag in Part Deux this weekend. Dimensions: 10″ w x 13″ h. From $690 and up.
For Weekends or Travel
I love the large size! Thanks to a hidden gusset on the bottom that allows the bag to expand, this weekender holds everything you actually need without any of the bulk. I recently took it to the movies after a day by the pool; I had a change of clothes for my son, my trusty Hermés cashmere shawl (it’s always freezing indoors during the summer months), and multiple snacks – because I am Chinese and in case of emergency, never leave the house without enough food for two. Dimensions: 16” w x 15” h. From $1150 and up.

I have my laptop in the medium size day tote, can you tell? I went to lunch like this, excused myself to the ladies’ room to respond to an urgent issue that the iPhone could not handle, and no one was the wiser. In case you’re wondering, I am wearing Rosie Assoulin top, House of Holland jeans, and the London denim platform sandals from Michael Kors (sorry it’s sold out).

Don’t buy any ‘By The Way’s’ yet before you read this.
You see, we were excited when the newer version of the Fendi By The Way Bag was getting a tale with lots of Swarovski crystal embossed.
READ: Fendi Mini By The Way Leather Bag
Not only because the size was ‘mini’ but the tale was like… a crocodile tale. It was elegant, beautiful and shiny – basically our taste!
The Swarovski stones matches like twins to the color of your bag. The black with black stones and the pink with light pink and white stones. Lovely!
Now Fendi reintroduces the By The Way Bag in Snakeskin, completely embellished with beads, sequins and crystals.
Besides that it is in beautiful yellow – the color of the summer, it has the same crocodile tale that we’ve mentioned earlier. And to make it even cuter than ever, it’s stitched with cute miniature creations of the Fendi classics everywhere on the bag.
It comes with a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap, featuring an internal zipped and slot pockets, measuring 5’ x 8’ x 4’ (H x W x D), priced at €2990 euro via MyTheresa.
