Back to School: History Lesson - Stories Behind the Most Famous Handbags

Back to School: History Lesson - Stories Behind the Most Famous Handbags

Posted by DARINA GRANIK

Last month on Instagram we asked if our followers were interested in knowing the history of Hermès Kelly bag and over 60% pressed “YES”. So September turned out to be a perfect time to share some stories and to take you through histories of the most famous, beloved and cult handbags of our time. These handbags are conversation starters, and not only status symbols but cultural symbols as they carry a plethora of cultural references and stories behind them. They don't only belong to our wardrobes and private collections, but also films, museums and art exhibitions.

Chanel Ditches Their Authenticity Cards for Custom NFC Microchips

Chanel Ditches Their Authenticity Cards for Custom NFC Microchips

Posted by TESSA HALL

This spring, while loyal Chanel customers were still processing the recent price hikes on their favourite Chanel bags, they had another development coming their way; no more authenticity cards. What was once a staple for verified assurance that what you purchased was the real deal, is now no more. Of course, avid high-end fashionistas may be aware of this change, as they keep up on the latest news pertaining to the luxury market, but others may be caught off guard by its absence.

Chanel Ups Their Prices, Again--and They’re Not Alone

Chanel Ups Their Prices, Again--and They’re Not Alone

If you’re a loyal Chanel fan, then you’re already aware that the iconic brand has once again increased their prices of styles, like the Chanel 19 Small Bag, up by 10% as of July 1, 2021. This most recent price increase from Chanel marks it’s third increase in the span of 14 months; during a pandemic no less. Yes, Chanel’s increase was noteworthy among many fashion bibles and publications, but it is not unique from the current trend happening within luxury brands at present.

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Is investing in the cards for your future? Does that sound totally dry and really not something you’ve thought about in-depth? Once upon a time (when our parents were young adults and thinking about their first investments) you’d have to go into a bank, talk in great lengths to some generic-looking man and try and remember all the jargon words being tossed around like diversification, bonds, dividends, and volatility. Well, times have changed, in a big way! 

Love fashion? Great at scouting out a deal? Then maybe your type of smart investment lies in the resale luxury market.

So clearly 2020 has been nothing like we anticipated. As an extension of that, our new wardrobe looks and choices have kind of been the same way. Have you been opting for CK sports bras over your favourite sultry lace bras? Are you finding new ways to incorporate athleisure wear into going out outfits? Has that tube of mascara you bought in March lasted you into the fall? It’s okay! That’s where we’re at too!

Let’s take the shame out of low-maintenance looks and let’s embrace this new normal for what it has to offer: functional and fashionable alternatives!

THIS OR THAT: BATTLE OF THE ULTIMATE CROSSBODY BAGS

THIS OR THAT: BATTLE OF THE ULTIMATE CROSSBODY BAGS

Posted by DIANA NGUYEN

This month on the blog we tackle a “this or that” debate that I’m sure everyone has an opinion on! What is the ultimate crossbody bag? How do you define it? What makes it unique, but practical? We dive into the specifics of our top four based on reviews and research of these luxury finds.

More common than ever, designers are including a longer crossbody strap to many handbags in order to add more versatility and ways to wear (which we love, of course!). As a result, the distinct criterion for this list is that these bags can only be worn crossbody; otherwise the options on what to include would be limitless! Let’s get started!

It seems like “fast-fashion” has become the new dirty word. Most commonly, you see it used as an insult directed towards specific companies in the name of the new sustainability craze. As sustainable fashion becomes a necessity as well as a trend, shoppers are looking for new ways to fill their wardrobes. Bring on the ever-growing rise of the resale—or second-hand—market.
