H&M Store Opening on 42nd and 5th, NYC: BAGTRENDS

Dear Bagistas,

I'm sure by now everyone in NY knows that HandM "has 5th avenue covered!" thanks to it's newest location on 42nd and 5th - which is such a great spot right next to the library and my bus stop to get home!!

Any who, before the doors officially opened yesterday at 12pm a private breakfast was held. I thought there was going to be some kind of presentation, but actually it was just drinks and breakfast that you could carry around while you shop. I loved it! It was total VIP which is so fabulous. It was nice bumping into editors I have worked with in the past and finally meeting the pr people from HandM. But, I have to say the best part was shopping in peace and quite with a drink in my hand. Oh ya, and getting to shop at 25% off! Very bag-a-licious.

Speaking of bags, HandM is really working the faux leather. I was very impressed with the selection of work bags. For $30-60 you get a decent bag that may not last past the season but if you really want to catch a trend this is the way to do it.

Have a bag-a-licious day!

YSL Uptown Bag in Grey Crocodile: BAGTRENDS

Dear Bagistas,

While I'm always on the hunt for the next rising star in the bag world, sometimes I can't help but marvel at the glory of the great. Case in point - YSL's latest version of the Uptown Bag in patent grey crocodile. Proving yet again that Stefano Pilato and Valerie Herman (YSL's CEO) are a match made in fashion heaven.

Pre-Order at Saks Fifth Avenue

The gradual color change from whites blue to grey is fabulous.
The structured, boxy shape is divine and a perfect pairing the must-have dress coat for fall.
The damage? $26,995 Oh, and there's a wait list which, if my sources at SAKS are correct will be filled before the bags ever get to shelves. Meaning? The bags will never hit the shelves.
Oh, to be a bagistas with endless cash supply. But, fear not my bag-a-licious friends. There are lots of grey and/or structured options out there for all our wallets, regardless of size.

Dear Bagistas,

IMG Fashion, the producer of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, announced today that it has reached an agreement with the city of New York and the Parks Department for the twice yearly event to remain in Bryant Park through February 2010. It is the longest term contract ever signed by IMG with Bryant Park.

“We couldn’t be happier,” said IMG Fashion svp Fern Mallis, “the event is synonymous with Bryant Park and, though the search for a new location continues with the Mayor’s office and Parks Department, we are happy that all parties will be able to continue to plan for upcoming events while new locations are explored by IMG in concert with the City.”
