Coveted Bag: Louis Vuitton Sac Triangle Bag

Traditionally, Louis Vuitton has not featured strongly on Hangbag-Fetishist. Even their achieve has left me lukewarm. No interesting shapes, styles, finishes, handles. Of course the ubiquitous monogram, which as an opponent of monograms. Means that LV and I must remain apart. However, not wishing to completely turn my back on Louis Vuitton. I discovered a […]

Coveted Bag: Smythson Antonia Bag

Atlast, my handbag version of the White Wale has been captured. For too long; I have pondered and wondered and obsessed. Who was the designer of Dita Von Teese’s mystery black bag (see bottom images). A chic compact bag, living up to my ideals of arm candy. But no one ever gave the name of […]

More to do with the fact that McQueen has been using fur (a big no-no) and when said designer uses Rabbit fur, that is a double negative. With […]

Don’t Leave Me Hanging

As a committed bag lady, I like to think that I am fairly competent with accessories and etiquette. Admittly this I just my own interpretation and not likely to catch the attention of the masses.
