Best Bet: The Cambridge Satchel Poppy Top Handle is the Best Bag Under $200

Categories:Other Brands

It’s exceedingly rare that I peruse a fashion retailer’s new arrivals and think to myself, “Whoa, that’s a good deal.” Even when it comes to contemporary designs, bags usually look more or less as expensive as they are, and when they don’t, we try to document the fashion world’s rare good values in as much detail as possible. Yesterday afternoon, I found one that deserved a shopping alert all its own: the new Cambridge Satchel Poppy Top Handle Bag.

Cambridge Satchel’s bags almost always look more expensive than they are because the brand uses smooth leather and sticks with structured, classic styles, which are relatively uncommon at a price point that often embraces softer, slouchier bags that appeal to younger, more casual shoppers. Those market tendencies can make finding a sophisticated leather bag under $250 a little tricky, but Cambridge Satchel is always a reliable source, and this new top handle is the brand’s best effort yet.

The bag is medium-sized and unlined, which would make it a solid, lightweight work bag as long as you don’t need to carry files or a laptop. In addition to the generously sized top handle, the bag also has a removable shoulder strap, which ups its versatility and also makes it feel a bit more modern. Right now, Shopbop has it in stock in both traditional black and deep burgundy for the immensely reasonable price of $195.

Freja Beha Erichsen Channels Her Effortless Side in Michael Kors Fall 2016 Campaign

Categories:Fashion

Whenever a fashion house releases an ad campaign, it unveils its seasonal aesthetics only through a few pictures. Michael Kors takes the whole ‘ad campaign business’ extremely seriously. The designer just took the conceptual essence that lies behind it to a brand new level with his Michael Kors fall 2016 campaign, exclusively channeled by model Freja Beha Erichsen.

With her characteristic effortless side and a well-assorted model squad, the Danish model helped the pictures to better recall the collection’s carefree and strong, confident vibes the American designer had in mind while designing the ensembles.

“For the seasonal campaigns, we’re always looking to capture the mood of the season while still giving customers a subtle look into the inspiration of the collection. For Fall, it was about attitude, personal style and luxury travel but with a very cool, glamorous edge,” explained Kors.

The campaign’s pictures feature models Emmy Rappe, Romy Schonberger, Sven de Vries and Wouter Peelen too, captured in private jets or in helicopters flying over Manhattan. As for Freja Beha Erichsen, she is seen posing in the backseat of a vintage car, which surely adds an almost cinematographic touch to the already extremely well-balanced array of dreamy pictures. Those who have a keen eye for fashion photography may then have already guessed who the man behind the lens is: Mr. Mario Testino.

Given the fact that jocose vibes and contrasting mannish cuts overwhelm the Michael Kors fall/winter 2016-17 collection, Testino managed to skillfully translate the overall aesthetics into what the designer wants us to perceive. This is particularly clear and visible throughout the campaign, as the pictures exude an urban-chic and cosmopolitan sense of fashion that will instantly catapult us in the fanciest restaurant of New York City.

Erichsen’s unconventional beauty undeniably helps Testino to transfer the line-up’s strength into pictures, helping us feel self-confident whether we are wearing one of Kors’ whimsical feathery trousers or his tres chic furry coats.

“Freja’s combo of beauty, dry wit and great sense of personal style make her one of a kind. She’s a tomboy, a fashion girl and the ultimate cool girl all mixed in one.”

The campaign focuses on the accessory line as well, always letting either the handbags or the shoe line grab all the attention. It’s no secret the American designer is particularly strong when it comes to the accessories, as proven by the label’s increasing sales of MK handbags, as well as by the ever-growing number of people who are channeling a Michael Kors handbag down the streets.

To see the printed versions of the campaign we have to wait for the fall issues of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and France Le Figaro Paris Chic!

Karl Lagerfeld Taps Mica Arganaraz and Baptiste Giabiconi for Fall 2016 Campaign

Categories:Fashion

Karl Lagerfeld’s impeccable fashion taste strikes again. The acclaimed fashion designer and photographer has just unveiled his Karl Lagerfeld fall 2016 ad campaign, for which he tapped iconic models Mica Arganaraz and Baptiste Giabiconi as the best stars to channel the mood of his collection.

Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2016 Campaign

Just back from his biggest success in Rome, where he presented the dreamlike Fendi Couture fall 2016 collection on the Trevi Fountain, Karl Lagerfeld took some time to concentrate on his namesake label, unveiling what could be regarded as the coolest fall campaign ever.

When it comes to tapping the fanciest and coolest brand ambassadors, Karl Lagerfeld is undeniably a pro, with always new secret weapons up his sleeves to enchant us with (he chose Willow Smith as Chanel’s brand ambassador less than a few weeks ago).

To make things even more appealing, he is also often physically involved in the ‘making of’ the campaign, as his passion for photography is little by little taking over his job as a fashion designer and is more and more at the core of his already astounding career. Our beloved and eclectic Karl Lagerfeld is in fact the one ‘to be blamed’ for the Karl Lagerfeld fall 2016 ad campaign too, as he is the one who skillfully captured the iconic models in a dream array of exquisitely balanced black & white photos.

Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2016 Campaign

All sealed with Lagerfeld’s signature firm and a hand-written caption that makes each photo look like a postcard, the campaign combines Mica Arganaraz’s and Baptiste Giabiconi’s stunning personalities with the collection’s edgy and cool ensembles, among which the designer and photographer chose the fanciest and most street-style-inspired looks.

To enhance this contrast, Arganaraz and Giabiconi channel natural looks both for what concerns the hairstyle and makeup, leaving it up to their messy locks and glam rock leather jackets to bring out their confidence and unconventional beauty.

The campaign also manages to translate the Karl Lagerfeld FW 2016-17 collection’s aesthetics into pictures, making overall genderless and strong street-style allure triumph in the photos. Arganaraz is thus seen posing not only in the coolest leather jacket ever (even Fonzie would be jealous!), but also wearing a covetable suit jacket, a pair of polished pants and a cozy sweater.

Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2016 Campaign

The collection’s accessory line, along with the iconic Lagerfeld-inspired slip-ons, sharp-cut handbags, glam-rock watches and sunglasses, is at the focal point of most of the pictures too, and is inevitably accentuated by the black and white contrasting lights.

Arganaraz has even received what could be regarded as the ultimate ‘fashion blessing’, as Lagerfeld described her as “exactly the kind of girl I like. She’s Argentinean. She’s very chic, very natural, very spontaneous. I think she is the girl of the moment.”
