Basso & Brooke X Cambridge Satchel Company

Who didn’t want a Cambridge satchel when they first started popping up all over blogs and on celebrity shoulders? I think the neon collection was probably the biggest hit; but no, I still didn’t grab any of those despite the low price points.  And now I’m so glad I waited.

The UK based masters of digital prints Basso & Brooke have teamed up with the Cambridge Satchel Company to produce 3 limited edition leather satchels.  Only 100 units of each bag were made, and all are covered in the duo’s amazing power prints from their A/W 2012 collection.  I think the combination of classic structured leather and modern digital imagery is what makes these so perfect.

Lagoon Special 11″  approx. $230

Geo 126 13″ approx. $315

Lagoon 14″ approx. $347

How amazing are their prints?  If you’re lucky enough to get one, be sure to expect a plethora of envious stares and inquiries.

Giving Never Looked So Good

Here’s your chance to give the gift that literally keeps on giving, and all the while doing it in style.  One Kings Lane and a selection of 7 designers; including Rachel Zoe, Simon Doonan, Alice+Olivia, Rachel Roy, and Lela Rose;  have collaborated to create a limited collection of designer gift wrap with proceeds benefitting the charities of their choice.

For $15 you get a set of 3 designer gift-wrap rolls consisting of 8 sheets per roll.  Plus while you’re bringing the most stylishly wrapped gifts to the party, you’re also helping those in need this holiday season.

Sales start November 14 with Rachel Zoe.  Check a few sneak peaks from the collection below…

Rachel Zoe for Save the Children November 14

Simon Doonan for Lower East Side Girl’s Club November 28

Lela Rose for The Edible Schoolyard Project November 28


Rachel Roy for OrphanAid Africa December 3


I’m really loving Lela Rose and Rachel Zoe’s collections, and looking forward to seeing what the other designers have to offer.  Also, since the designs are not necessarily holiday themed, the wraps can be used year round for any occasion or even framed as artwork for your walls!

Be A Good Model Like Naomi

Just because she threw her cell phone at her housekeeper a few years back, doesn’t mean Naomi Campbell can’t make up for it somehow.  Fashion For Relief, her non-profit charity, utilizes the popularity of fashion, designers, and runway shows to help raise money for those in need.

This time around, she has teamed up with online retailer Yoox.com along with designers 3.1 Phillip Lim, Dolce & Gabbana, Masha Ma, Moschino and Qiu Hao to create exclusive T-shirts celebrating the launch of Yoox.com in China.

At $35 each, here’s your chance to own some exclusive designer gear while doing good at the same time.

3.1 Phillip Lim – my personal favorite!

Not Your Everyday Jean

I have been a long time fan of artist James Jean, and even spent all my savings one day to purchase his limited edition Prada Fairy Bag.  So I was both horrified and elated when I happened upon his line of jewelry, objects, textiles, and prints with OVM. Horrified that it had taken me this long to find it despite my endless hours on the internet, and elated that from now on I would never miss his upcoming works.

Speaking of upcoming, James Jean/OVM for BLITZ Lane Crawford just released today! I cannot emphasize enough how much I am obsessed with everything on the site.  Sadly, I would have to file for bankruptcy if I fulfilled my dreams this time around.

See slideshow for pics of some sold out limited editions AND some still available. Get it if you can!

Barely Fall, But Ready to Spring Forward

As if we weren’t already excited enough about Target X Neiman Marcus coming holiday season 2012; Target has announced Prabal Gurung as their next designer collaboration scheduled for Spring 2013 (February 10 – March 23).  The 80-piece collection will range between $12.99 – $199.99 and will of course be limited edition.

There’s only one teaser pic for the collaboration thus far, but if the rest looks anything like his Spring 2012, Spring 2013, or Resort 2013 collections my wallet will be doomed!

what a tease!
