While I was out west in California for the Christmas holidays, I spent a few days in San Deigo, where I visited the historic Hotel Del Coronado, a luxury resort property that’s right on the beach. The Hotel Del, as it is known, has an amazing and colorful history that goes back to the late 1880s and it is arguably San Diego’s most famous landmark building. It was also once known as Hollywood’s Playground, so it is not much og a surprise that their gift shop sells all kinds of fancy stuff like this simply breathtaking Pink Lotus Blossom Handbag by Mary Frances handbags, which I would wish to own.
I stopped into the Aldo accessories boutique yesterday afternoon after scoring a serious shoe bargain next door at Century 21, and just fell in love with this glittery pink handbag shaped like a pair of luscious lips! This beautiful bag is compact, yet roomy enough to hold a decent amount of your crap — besides just a smart phone and wallet — and it also includes a slender shoulder strap for hot cross-body action. OMG so cute. Get yours at Aldo, located at 470 Broadway (and other locations – Google them!) in Manhattan, or buy it online for $45.00 at This Link!
I was at the Architectural Digest Design Show a few weeks ago, cutting through one booth on the way to another booth, when I noticed that someone had left this totally sick Fuchsia Pink Crocodile Hermes Bag totally unattended — which is insane, because regardless of what’s inside it, this bag alone is worth as much as a car. But what caught my attention even more than the bag’s awesome pinkness, was this hilarious caricature of designer-god Karl Lagerfeld, rendered in vinyl and rabbit fur, and hanging from the purse’s strap on a key ring.
Oh Karl, how cute are you?
Casting and plating the objects in unlikely materials — resin, plaster, platinum, silicone and copper — Shelter Serra strips them of their intended functionality. He highlights their underlying cultural symbolism and transforms branded products into objects of aesthetic contemplation, offering a new perspective on materialism in today’s society. Serra states, “refining an aesthetic and making beautiful objects, whether that be a dress, bag or sculpture is a celebration of pure creativity and personal vision.”
Available from the PK (Paul Kasmin) Shop Located at 511 West 27th Street for $3500.
