today’s closetcast: trend report

The rucksack is a fun silhouette for fall when executed properly. I love these two designs above as they are a far cry from tacky mini backpacks and hold on to sophisticated elements I can appreciate. Specifically, the black leather and minimalist hardware which together create an understated handbag that is unique in its silhouette but functional in its design.

When it comes to handbags, are you the type to splurge on trendy pieces like this or on more iconic and timeless pieces like (in my opinion) the Givenchy Antigona or Gucci Soho? So when it comes to a handbag that is admittedly a “seasonal” piece, is it best to splurge or save? The Row bag on the left is absolutely stunning. But the $3900 price-tag can be a tough pill to swallow. On the right, Zara at a mere $179. Which is best?

Really feeling a black and white palette this morning. Don’t you just love how crisp and clean it looks? Even on a pair of sneakers, there is a certain formality to it that creates such a polished look. I am naturally drawn to these colors in silks, leathers, and mixed like that beautiful Haider Ackermann coat and those Veronika Maine pants. What do you guys think of this palette?

1. Topshop leather top; 2. Veronika Maine Dandelion pants; 3. Stephen Webster necklace; 4. Mango drop waist dress; 5. Haider Ackermann wool blend coat; 6. Saint Laurent two-tone penny loafers; 7. Givenchy Antigona bag; 8. Ganni Lavish blouse via Need Supply; 9. Nike Thea sneakers
