Fashion Month, one of the most exciting times of the year (in our humble opinion), is almost upon us! Tomorrow (12th February) the fashion elite will descend on the streets of New York as the first Fashion Week of the season kicks off. So many incredible designers, both new and established, will be showcasing their Autumn/Winter 2015 collections – we can’t wait to see what’s to come from the likes of DKNY, Astrid Andersen, Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung and Marc by Marc Jacobs. But being the accessories lovers that we are, here are a few that we at MyBag are really looking forward to…
Rebecca Minkoff is renowned for her luxury, yet accessible, collections. What started as a five-piece collection in 2001 has now grown to apparel, footwear, handbags, jewellery and accessories. In 2005 her first handbag, the ‘Morning After Bag’ aka the ‘M.A.B’, gained iconic status and was the beginning of Rebecca’s career as a handbag designer.
Known for her colourful and playful designs, Rebecca’s handbags are real statement pieces, complete with studs, leather and hardware.
Calvin Klein began in 1968 as a small coat business and soon grew to the global brand it is today. Renowned for its minimalist, classic everyday styles, Calvin Klein now has collections spanning apparel, underwear, bags and accessories for men and women. Known for its iconic campaigns featuring Marky Mark (Mark Wahlberg) and Kate Moss, and more recently Justin Bieber and Lara Stone, Calvin Klein is recognised the world over.
Founded by designer Michelle Smith, MILLY is bold and feminine. After studying at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, Michelle went to Paris and interned at Hermés, Louis Vuitton, Torrente and Christian Dior Haute Couture. She then returned to New York and founded MILLY in 2001.
Michelle’s designs take on both a contemporary and vintage aesthetic, merging American sportswear influences with classic techniques to produce glamorous, sophisticated and stylish collections. With custom-made prints and luxurious European fabrics, MILLY has become a cult brand across the globe.
Here are just a few of our favourites from the latest MILLY collection – we can’t wait to see what NYFW brings!
