This timeless briefcase was Dave Munson’s very first design for Saddleback Leather Co. He originally designed the bag for himself and after receiving tons of compliments, his business was born. Not only are all the products made of the most luscious and perfectly broken in leather, they come with a 100 year warranty and the signature briefcase turns into a backpack too! As he says, “This will be the last briefcase you will ever buy, and your grandkids will fight over it when you are gone.”

Diane von Furstenberg: Subtle yet vibrant, DVF’s Greek goddess inspired collection was spot on. I loved the solid pieces just as much as her signature bold patterns and I need to know when I can get my hands on that fanny pack.
Cynthia Steffe: Fun, colorful and casual, I love the effortlessness of Shaun Kearney’s collection and confident mixing of colors.
DKNY: Sweet ruffles and bold, classic colors—Donna Karen’s Spring collection is wearable, feminine and simply pretty.
Marchesa: Stunning, breathtaking and masterful works of art is an absolute understatement. All I can say is: WOW. BEYOND amazing.
Milly: The eternal Peggy Guggenheim was Michelle Smith’s muse for this collection of floral and geometric prints, turbans and cat eye sunglasses. And now, vivid tomato red could very well be new favorite color…

Leave it to Vivienne Tam to brilliantly incorporate colorful tribal tassels into her Spring 2011 collection. These similar tassels from Silk Road Tribal were salvaged from vintage Turkoman & Baluchi garments and thanks to Vivienne, I’ve been inspired to add them to a belt or bag. Obsessed!
