As Fashion Month draws to a close, we must pick up the pieces and filter out the relevant information. So far, we know the Spring 2014 collections were all very Spring-y, the front rows were all very famous, and the models were all very white.
But! There were still surprises to be found in New York, London, Paris and Milan, as the accessories stole the show time and time again. Here’s 25 gorgeous, striking and occasionally very wacky bags from Fashion Month, featuring Oscar de la Renta, Victoria Beckham, rag & bone, Christian Dior, Viktor + Rolf, Lanvin and more!

While the Spring 2014 collections have been a little same-y, they’ve brought a lot of fun, eye-catching, wearable accessories. See, for example, our roundup of the many delightful shoes.
Now, of course, it’s time for handbags. Graphic black and white was the reason for the season at NYFW–a huge portion of the bags we saw played with contrasting stripes, geometric details and houndstooth. Let’s take a closer look… More

Coach may not be a hardened veteran of the collaboration game but they’re making inroads: recently, they let bloggers take a crack at it and now they’ve asked Anna Sui to interpret the brand’s Duffle Sac, an evergreen style that dates back to 1972. More
Jessica Biel has the starring role in Elle‘s December issue and chats with the glossy about all kinds of stuff, by which we mean she answers the obligatory “How do you stay fit?” question (“I feel very lucky that I grew up using my body, playing soccer, doing gymnastics. I’m just not one of those people who are super-duper skinny”), dodges the obligatory Justin Timberlake question (“A girl doesn’t kiss and tell”) and then poses for a few photos in her underwear. She was shot by Carter Smith wearing Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Reed Krakoff and American Apparel. More
Today’s our last day of rounding up the trends of Spring 2012 from NYFW, so we figure we’d cap with something that everyone can wear regardless of skintone, body type, height etc: monochrome.
