Also, it allowed me to write about the LongchampLe Pliage and why they’re so loved by students, career girls, yummy mummies, and boysalike. Well, boys that attend Central St Martins or Marangoni.
New York is the epitome of style. It's one of the fashion capitals of the world, after all. While running in and out of designer meetings and showroom visits, we spotted amazing handbag style on the streets of NYC. Now, I don't claim to be The Sartorialist, we'll leave that job to the pro.

This spring, Louis Vuitton bags (Neverfulls, Speedies and a whole lot of Vernis Almas) seemto be absolutely everywhere. LV's enduring appeal is no mystery. They were a favourite ofAudrey Hepburn, and really, what other bag's appeal transfers everywhere so seamlessly?From the Tuileries to Tokyo, and Berlin to Brooklyn, they work. Granted, since I’ve decidedto buy one, it could also be selective-attention bias. I own a Monogram Lockit, and am now lusting after Damier Canvas.
