Two seasons ago, my friend Jason Wu gifted me with my very own Daphne Bag in a rich, cherry red color. It’s become one of my favorite and most practical bags. I really love how you can turn this shoulder bag into a really elegant clutch by just tucking in the straps. It’s very roomy and the leather is oh so buttery soft and smooth. Despite its compact size, it fits all my essentials. How chic is this version, in pastel mint?

While my super gorgeous seatmate Jessica Stam was busy fanning herself (I don’t blame her — it was soo hot at the Tuileries) while watching the spring/summer 2013 fashion show, I couldn’t stop ooh-ing and ahh-ing at these MAJOR Valentino bags.
Oh and this amazing pyramid-studded, clear trench coat showed up. I DIED!
The timing could not be anymore perfect because I wore a transparent Sonia Rykiel coat at Chanel earlier that morning.
Ever wonder what goes into making a handbag? Mulberry just released this video that details the birth of their new Del Rey (yes — inspired by Lana) bag.

How can one not fall in love with this gorgeous Givenchy Antigona bag? The emerald green colour is so rich, rich, rich, luxe, luxe, luxe! I think I found my bag of the season. Now if only I could get my sweaty hands on it asap, I’d be a very happy camper.

It’s not easy trying to resist something extremely good. I’m one of the last people to carry a Proenza Schouler bag. Everyone has the PS1 in every imaginable color and material. I don’t blame them; the PS1 is a classic. But after seeing this sporty tri-color Proenza Schouler PS11 baby, with its fabric straps (you can detach them and voila, you have an oversized clutch), pastel blue flap and gorgeous details, I have no choice but to slate it as numero uno on my ‘must-have’ list. It’s been my every day bag for quite awhile now. Whether I’m wearing Prada florals or Acne camoflorage or monochromatic Alexander Wang, I’m honestly surprised how it matches whatever I’m wearing on rotation.

The clutch obsession continues. Corto Moltedo made this gorgeous clutch bag festooned with metal spiderwebs and a bejeweled spider.

I don’t normally consider myself as a clutch person because I like to keep a hand free — free to smoke a cigarette, free to use my gargantuan camera take photos here and there, free to use my phone to text or to read Twitter. However, I’m a getting a bit bored of using bags that hang off the shoulder (or body) so the idea of simplifying and carrying the basics (lighter, gum, small wallet, ciggies and lip gloss) is very appealing. Last week in Paris, the very handsome Gabrielcorto gifted me this cute snakeskin clutch with neon green piping. I love it. It’s the perfect bag to keep the essentials on a relaxed Friday afternoon here in Stockholm.

Spanish luxury house Loewe sent me this paper version of their iconic Amazona bag along with the invitation to their Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show in Paris. It’s a fully-functional bag complete with metal hardware, like the zipper, keys and padlock. How cute!
You know you’ve hit the jackpot and have made it in life when everything you own is white. Why? Only someone with unlimited financial resources can manage to not care about keeping their precious blanc things pristine. I’ve fallen in love with the black python Givenchy Antigona bag (it’s numero uno on my wishlist) but the white leather version, below, takes the cake. I’m not really a white bag person. My sweaty, clammy hands and my clumsiness will get this flawless baby extremely dirty in no time.
