Fur and faux furs bags were all the rage at Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Dries van Noten, and Michael Kors, and while the perspex bags at 3.1 Phillip Lim and the cute minauderies from Diane von Furstenberg may not be totally useful, they sure are cute.
Or course if you need a bag that will actually fit your things inside it, the giant leather carryalls at Alexander Wang might just do the trick.
We’ve scoured the Fall 2012 collections for the most amazing shoes, and it was easy, because there were plenty. The best part? Footwear options for Fall 2012 are a lot more reasonable than their Spring 2012 counterparts. (Remember those 6 inch Versace lucite wedges?)
Fall 2012 saw lots of wide heels and mary-janes on the runway, and sometimes both simultaneously–like at Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Marni. Knee-high black boots ruled at Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Givenchy, and Rick Owens, and ladylike pumps could be found at Lanvin, Nina Ricci, and Jil Sander. Of course, if you’re looking for something crazy, look no further than Alexander McQueen’s heel-less fur shoes. Impractical, but so lovely.
Take a look at all the amazing shoes from Fall 2012 and just try to pick a favorite. It’s near impossible.

She wore blue velvet. And black velvet. And purple velvet. And… well, you get the idea. Prints aren’t the only thing getting the all-over treatment this season. London was chock full of George Constanza-approved velvets in an array of dark, sombre colors at shows like Burberry Prorsum, Paul Smith and Topshop Unique. Is it now Read more →
MILAN–Here in Milan, the question on everyone’s lips is, without a doubt, what is Raf Simons going to do next?
While some are staying mum on the subject (Hamish Bowles told us he couldn’t comment yet), Anna Dello Russo shared her insight on the matter with us.
“It’s really a shame for me [that Raf is leaving Jil Sander],” she told us. “He did an incredible job.” It’s true–ADR is not the only person who’ll be mourning the loss of Raf at Jil. But what about Dior? Perhaps we’ll get to see Simons’ expert design skills put to good use at the storied French house?
