The new Celine collection includes lots of Celine’s hits in new color combinations and leathers, including new Luggage Totes, Trapeze Bags and Cabas Totes of both the bicolored and zipper-gusseted varieties. Also available are new versions of
what Celine is calling the Celine Tie Tote, which was new for Winter 2013 and plays on the wide-gusseted structure of the Luggage Tote, but with a knotted handle attachment. For winter, the bags where shown with their top flap closures exposed, but in these
product images, they’re tucked in.

Hermès Petit h
"Waste not, want not". Hermès takes the old saying literally with its métier Petit h, a magical laboratory of sorts, where precious Hermès scraps become objects of wonder. A tiny flaw in a crocodile skin may stop it
from becoming a bag, but in the hands of the craftspeople at Petit h, it becomes something else entirely - a pair of intriguing book-ends, perhaps? Or a custom bag for a single apple? Catch a showcase of especially created items when Petit h descends on the
New Bond Street store (November 20-December 7, 2013).
For anyone in London for those dates, check it out.

Laurent Bags are currently in Brown Thomas, Dublin, a very fine collection actually.

New Louis Vuitton Autumn Winter bags - structured muted tones and less monogramming - looking forward to these!
COCO CHANEL is the subject of a new exhibition at the London College of Fashion (LCF). The display featured portraits of the designer taken by her friend, Californian artist Marion Pike.
The showcase looked at the friendship between the two, exploring their life stories and their creative influences. Pike first met Chanel in 1967, when she was asked to create the designer's portrait - a large-scale painting that pays homage to her skills as a colourist.
The exhibition featured five portraits of Chanel, alongside couture pieces worn by Pike and her daughter, Jeffie Pike Durham, who loaned each of the displayed pieces. Curated by LCF professor Amy de la Haye, the display was on show between September 4 and November 16 at the college's Fashion Space Gallery on John Princes Street, London W1.
see my review after my visit in my blog "Coco & Marion".
Adore this great actress, Cate Blanchett, she looks amazing carrying her fabulous Roger Vivier Prismick Zig Zag shoulder bag.
This is a new Diane Von Furstenberg 440 mini shoulder bag (but I think more like a med size myself), it's between winter white and beige in colour and the top flap a little lighter in colour with a little lizard embossing on it, I think a great bag because its versatile and well designed. It is not rigid but it's structured enough but still gives a casual feel. Go onto Net-A-Porter and get yourself one! Please take a look at my other blog post called "my latest purchase" to see my new crimson red delight!

Iconic New Fendi Be Baguette -
The New Fendi Be Baguette crossbody wear - Taupe colour.
This bag has a long shoulder strap, made out of chain instead of leather, I always love chain straps for a change, and it has a great front pocket added also for a smartphone, to be honest I don't think it is really like the old Baguette but it is named Be Baguette after the original one. I like them and they come in amazing colours. I think this bag is to rival the very expensive Chanel & Hermes.
I saw this in Seville yesterday, the great Carolina Herrera, a selection of fine bags there on display, she is such class. I really like this red one to match my lipstick! June '13
