Back with the Backpack

We know it’s not middle school any more, and mom is not making ziplock lunches (sadly), but hey, have you ever though you might just be more comfortable with a hands-free, carry all you can fit, and still look super cool with it?

The backpack is back, and there’s no way to deny it. You can find a sleek leather one for work, a tiny cool one for nigh-time necessities, or a classic Jansport for biking to school or lunch with the girls. Either way,  don’t feel scared, these are the new It bag to buy (or repurpose and get out from your mother’s attic).



Patricia Nash Italian Folklore Savona Backpack $229

Lesportsac x Liberty $95


Henri Bendel $229

Alexander Wang $1090

Best Sweatpants for Off-the-Couch

Sundays were always a day for the sweats. A pass from the restrains of office, casual, or whatever other good looking outfit permitted on the streets. Some guys take advantage of it and pairing them wrong, have created a big misconception for the item.  But now, designers like Alexander Wang, Band of Outsiders, Burberry Brit. , Thom Browne, and others are taking the matter into their hands and tailoring the perfect sweatpants for in and out of the house. You can wear them too, just be sure to make a good statement and a cool attitude: no-one likes a slouch.

Denim On Denim

This spring has really made a splash on the denim on denim trend.The winning combination this spring, as designers and premium denim brands dared women not only to double up on denim, but to do it in one piece or a matching two piece ensemble.The major denim moment this season  was when anything goes from shreaded dark wash, low slung or high-waisted, and even patched or bedazzzed all different types of styles have been presented this season.The designers have been finding ways to fit denim into any ocassion, whether it is super clean, luxe skinny jean or a laid-back cropped wide-leg jean.The leading charge was denim dresses,ranging  from embellished  and evening worth at Bottega Veneta to office-ready at Victoria Beckhsm to weekend playful at AG Adriano Goldschmied in its collaboration with Alexa Chung.The best idea to me was at the Stella McCartney with two piece denim pantsuits and jumpsuits.Enjoy and have fun with this new trend!
