The Best Bag Deals for the Weekend of December 19

The holidays will be here before we know it, and now is the perfect time to grab a last minute gift or two, like a great clutch or pouch (Olympia Le-Tan and 3.1 Phillip Lim, we are looking at you). It’s also a great time to congratulate yourself on another successful holiday shopping season and treat yourself to something new.

Don’t miss out on some of the awesome handbag discounts happening below, and after you’re done browsing these deals, head over to our Deals Page for more sales happening all across the Internet.

THP Holiday Lyst

thehautepursuitholidaylystIt’s been a while since I did a collage, so couldn’t have been happier to do one with Lyst to showcase some of the things I’d love to get this holiday season. In case you haven’t stumbled upon this genius of a site already, Lyst allows you to  collect all your fave items across the net in one simple, easy to use spot. This holiday, I want stay-true closet staples like a great nylon bomber jacket and yes, something a little more special, like a limited edition piece from the art-fashion collaboration between Sterling Ruby and Raf Simons.

In clockwise order:

Alexander Wang Bomber Jacket, Sterling Ruby x Raf Simons tee, Balenciaga Neck Choker, Philip Lim Long-Hair Clutch, Kiki De Montparnasse Voyeur Frame Bra, Woman By Common Projects Black Slip On,  Proenza Schouler Beige The Ps11 Leather Tote, Chanel Black Surpique Quilted Stitched Clutch, Saint Laurent Black Leather Mini SkirtBalenciaga Gray Wool and Angora Knit SweaterProenza Schouler Black High Heel Leather Sandal, Maison Martin Margiela Silver Defile Sculpted Twofinger Ring

Because he’s not busy enough between Balenciaga, his namesake label and its diffusion line, Alexander Wang is unveiling his latest venture today in its entirety: Denim x Alexander Wang.

“I wear jeans every day,” says the designer, and his collection is currently made up of three styles, all inspired by what he dubs the “genuine, men’s article” and his friends who wear them: Wang 001, Wang 002, and Wang 003, which run from a slim leg with minimal stretch to a relaxed cut and looser “boy” fit that, due to a tapered ankle, stays pegged when rolled. All have matte black rivets intended to disappear into the denim, and all possess that innate brand of Alexander Wang model-off-duty slouch.

You’re not the only one out there shopping all the just-launched seasonal sales; we are, too. Below, check out our picks for what we’d love to be bringing home–at a discount–this week.

We shot these right before flying to Marrakech, one of those days where I completely forgot it was Autumn and we were still enjoying from an extremely appreciated Indian Summer. There’s something about suits that has got me all crazy about them lately. This one seems very “corporate” and I have already worn it before while filming with Canon during London Fashion Week, but pinstripes are such a classic and you can always style it up up make it less formal.

The Best Bag Deals for the Weekend of November 7

The Best Bag Deals for the Weekend of November 7

Another Friday has come to pass, and that means it’s time for a new crop of fresh bag deals. This is a big weekend for discounts, so we’ll have more information about all the different sale opportunities later in the day. For now, check out the bags below and make sure to shop our Deals Page, which is continually updated with the best sales and discounts.

Want It Wednesday: Fuzziness of All Kinds

Want It Wednesday: Fuzziness of All Kinds

Fall and winter are a time for rich textures, and it doesn’t get much richer than fur, whether it’s real or faux. For this Want It Wednesday, we’ve picked our favorite fuzzy pieces on the market right now, all of which we wish we had in our own closets for the months ahead.

Alex Wins, Again

Maybe you’ve already heard way too much about it, but it’s been a long time since I’ve gotten this excited about an H&M collaboration with a designer (except for the fact that I did buy the entire Isabel Marant collection for H&M, ok, ok OK).


So, it’s super smart. I think the fact that they went for a very sporty collection instead of another version of his hits was a super idea. I was at the show, and the clothes are incredible – they’re real investments, there are lots of beautiful pieces, and a few parkas that will make the New York winter much nicer (can you tell how nervous I am about the polar vortex?)

And also, this super video, which couldn’t be more perfect for the science-fiction and martial arts fan in me (the next big big date in my calendar is the release of Interstellar, of course). This video is great and very well-produced. I saw it premiere at the launch party and I couldn’t wait to show it to you all. Besides, this is the music we were dancing to in the studio that day.

In short. Bravo Alex and H&M. Seriously. And you know I don’t say that often.

The Best Bag Deals for the Weekend of October 31

Happy Halloween, everyone! In preparation for all the candy you’ll pass out this weekend, you are in for a major treat with this round of bag deals. Not even the scariest masks or costumes could scare us away from the markdowns that await you below. And while you’re snacking on leftover fun-size candy, don’t forget to also check out our Deals Page.

Olive + Black

alexanderwanglysslingpradaolivebackpackthpshopcuffsEvery season, we are literally inundated with hundreds of ‘It’ Accessories that we must buy buy buy! For me, this season in terms of footwear it’s this Lys Slingback from Alexander Wang. I don’t know why but I immediately associated it with a bird. Anyways, it’s sexy as shit and with most AW shoes, it’s taken a very basic silhouette and exaggerated it. Being a fan of AW shoes, I can say that you definitely get what you pay for. The Freja boots that I’ve been wearing for the last 3 years are still as relevant and wearable after all this time. Expect a real outfit of this oh-so-soon!

Edit No. 1 / Part 6 …. The Midi Skirt

No but I love this outfit.

I’ve really had a thing for midi skirts lately but I have to warn you : they’re not easy.


I have three of them. Two whites and one blue. I wear them with little sweaters and high heels. It’s beautiful, very feminine. For winter, with high heeled boots it’s awesome, sexy, 70’s.

But of course you know me – the idea I love the most is to wear it with flats, like on the photo. It’s so elegant and gives a cool attitude, plus it’s comfortable, so you can really wear it in your everyday life.

BUT after trying a few times, once with ballet flats (too granny goes to the market) with sneakers (too Dover Street Market intellectual for me) and with brogues like on Alana in the photo (okay, so beautiful, but for me? Not so sure), I’m not 100% sure it works.

Still, I think a midi skirt is a great staple to have in our winter wardrobe. In white, so cool. And with a huge cardi like in the photo, love.

Do you like midi skirts? Have you tried wearing them? How do you do it?

Never say never because I said I would never be wearing cropped tops and I was clearly wrong. This jumper is one of my favourite pieces from the WANGxH&M collection and I reckon its gonna be one of the items that will fly of the clothing racks in no time….Its Wednesday again and I can’t believe its been a week since I played at the opening of H&M’s biggest European store. I am missing my months of practicing on my mixing, trying to find the perfect tracks for this party and figuring out ways to keep my neighbours happy despite the music, but hey, they did have a private DJ in the building though, my dinning room still looks like this and yes, Im still playing.

Bring the Heat

And bring on a new color!

We’ve seen it before. Heat sensitive color changing t-shirts from the 80s. Such a strange and somehow HUGE trend for any teen hoping to literally wear a conversation starter.

Every cool kid on the block had one, and I’m kind of thinking that these pouches from Alexander Wang might be the grown up version you didn’t know you were looking for.

Either way, you can at least have a BOGO mentality, without actually having to buy two.

More often than not I’m wearing black, white, or something along the creamy-camel spectrum. But lately I’ve been feeling like I need some color in my life. Whether it be in the form of this beautiful purple Whistles fur coat or today’s outfit shot during PFW. Being a long-time fan of the brand Kaelen, I jumped at the opportunity to work with them. This was one of my fave FW 14 looks.  The proportions. The orange-y high-lighter color. The fluted (zipped) hem. On paper: the antithesis of my usual style ‘code’. On me: exactly what the doctor prescribed! Not gonna lie, I was swishing, dancing and moving with a lot more bounce in this outfit! And the Chanel! More pics after the jump

The Best Bag Deals for the Weekend of October 17

I usually don’t pick a color theme for our weekly roundup of the Internet’s best bag deals, but sometimes, a color theme just happens. This week, all the most attractive bags were in muted neutrals and pastels, with a couple of black bags thrown in for balance. Luckily, these shades come in a variety of sizes and price points, so there’s likely a little something for everyone below.

If you don’t see something that tickles your fancy or you’d rather do a more extensive sale-shopping excursion, check out our Deals Page for a continuously updated stream of the best sales and deal from around the web.

I remember saying a few years ago; “If H&M ever did a Designer Collaboration with Alexander Wang, I would DIE”. Luckily I didn’t and I was obviously meaning I would be extremely freaking excited. You know me, you know that Alexander is my favourite designer, and he is one of the few ones I actually invest on -bags and shoes wise-. I have been so freaking excited about this collaboration with H&M, Sports luxe, EXACTLY my thing and here is a head to toe look to prove it.

What do you think about this collection? Do you already have favourite pieces?

This dress was an instant hit the moment I saw it. I wore it in New York Fashion Week  but of all days, this was the day when I was the busiest and I couldn’t shoot, which truthfully made me very angry, I freaking love this dress and I really wanted to shoot it with a New York setting.

A month later, I still haven’t given up on it and just in time to still bare the Autumn chill. The weather in A’dam has been pretty mild for this time of the year which I am HAPPY as hell about, but I wont get too ahead of myself…I don’t know whats with me and neoprene in the past few years, I don’t seem to get over it and a friend who doesn’t work in Fashion asked me the other day; Andy, is that the same fabric that makes the Mickey Mouse costumes in Disney? I was laughing so hard, I had to say yes and not crush his dreams hahaha.

The Best Bag Deals We’ve Ever Scored

Every week, I scour the web to find the best bag deals so that one of you might snag something great at significantly below retail, and the amount of time that I (and my coworkers) spend shopping, online and elsewhere, means that we’ve also got some pretty great deals tucked away in our closets.

MashaMaCropJacketAlexanderwangbootiesVanessaHong6

If it’s not already apparent on my instagram from this last PFW, I am a huge fan and admirer of Chinese, Paris-based designer Masha Ma. Her vision for her brand and the MA girl is centered on strength, edge, and aversion to anything status quo. The clothes: strong, modern, sleek. On the body: like a glove. So what is the face of New China and who is she?–a question often asked around these circles–Masha’s answer: she’s edgy, a little bad ass, and above all international. Sounds like my kinda girl!

How many times will I post an all grey outfit? Too many, but it works! I’m in love with anything heather grey and for all you tanned honeys like me, this is really the perfect color for our skin tone. It’s also very casual but luxurious at the same time–my EXACT MO! Here again is a bit of a high-low mix, of very affordable essentials from THPSHOP.CO and my other standstill Alexander Wang.

Alexander Wang’s Sneaker Bags Seem to Have Found Their Audience

Alexander Wang’s Sneaker Bags Seem to Have Found Their Audience

Today in Things I Didn’t Expect: Alexander Wang offered a very limited pre-order of his very literal, sneaker-inspired Spring 2015 runway bags on his website yesterday, and the three bags, all priced in the mid-$1,000 range, were sold out and completely gone from the site within a matter of hours. As we mentioned earlier today, the fashion community’s thirst for novelty pieces seems almost insatiable right now.

The bags, which appeared on Wang’s Spring 2015 runway two weeks ago in New York, were a limited edition sneak peek of the full collection. When we first wrote about the bags, you guys didn’t seem too impressed, and I’d wager a guess that your views are unchanged now that you know they’re at the top end of the brand’s normal price range.

I’d give you more information on exact prices and model names, but save for this one photo I managed to capture, the bags have been scrubbed from the site after their apparent sell-through. The rest of the sneaker-bag-hungry masses will have to wait until the collection because available early next year.

The Fashion Watch

This will make you really want an Apple Watch.

I’m not the kind of person that has to have the latest and greatest tech accessory (I have an iPhone 5C, which I call my “Fisher-Price phone” and I have no plans of ditching it any time soon) but if these imagined Apple Watch designs were to ever become a reality, I would be the first person waiting in line (which means, I would need to get in line now, right?).

I’m torn between the Chanel and the Vuitton. Come on Apple, make these happen!

First official outfit post from Paris Fashion Week. Something a little romantic but still keeping to true THP form. As I intimated on instagram, this is the first time THPSHOP will be launching its own in-house designed tee. 4 graphics which will be sold in unisex sizing printed on super luxe cotton/sweat shirt blends. I’ll be heading back home after Paris to shoot the look book….but I digress. Here’s a first look!

BALENCIAGA SS15

Balenciaga backstage

Alexander Wang sat the tone right before the show with Moody Good singing “It made your heart just skip a beat”, hoping that the audience would feel the same after the presentation. And if you’re a fan of cycling, you might really like this collection, which is made for speed. Leading the mood were sunglasses teamed up with bicycle chains worn as bracelets. To match the sporty vibe with the heritage of Balenciaga, Wang re-created the fishnet dresses that we’ve seen earlier from Nicolas Ghesquière  (AW11). Still, It’s not an easy task always being compared with Ghesquière (well, he’s my favourite designer so I’m definitely partial)..But Wang definitely has something going on!

The Best Bag Deals for the Weekend of September 19

The Best Bag Deals for the Weekend of September 19

Over the past week, something has changed. I’m not sure exactly what happened, but the Internet’s handbag sale pages went from being a barren handbag wasteland to being…well, slightly less barren. Sale season is nowhere near to full swing, but some rather notable handbag options have been added to almost every major retailer’s sale page in the past seven days, and we’ve assembled the best of the best into our weekly roundup of bag deals below.

If you require even more sales, steals and markdowns, head on over to our PurseBlog Deals Page, which is updated daily!

This SPORTMAX top is probably one of the coolest tops I’ve ever been able to wear and I feel like I could have done so much with it, just to show how versatile it can be. I decided to wear it with neoprene because…well, because I have been wearing neoprene for a very long time and the structure of it still wins me over every time, but I’ve could have easily done a black pair of jeans + stilettos and it would have worked as well (probably not leather pants as it was about 35 degrees that day)

Edit No. 1 / Part 2… The Suit

The suit!

As you know I love it, it even used to be my go-to for events. For fall it’s nice to dress it down a bit, make it a little more relaxed. Dianna and I thought a long shirt dress as a top would be the perfect piece. I like that even if you un-do a few buttons, it still looks dressed up and sexy.

How would you wear it?

On Alana: Shirt dress, Adam Lippes; Jacket and pants, Alexander Wang.

Nyfw day 3

Day three of my New York fashionweek: as first look of the day I opted for a total black outfit.
The focus obviously was on the hair that, thanks to the Redken team and Sara Weinstock diamond headpieces, shined even more than usual :)

Giorno tre della mia fashionweek newyorkese: come primo look ho optato per un outfit total black.
Il focus era naturalmente sui capelli che, grazie al team di Redken ed ai diamanti di Sara Weinstock, hanno brillato ancora più del solito :)

WANG FOR H&M

Wang for HM

Above is a preview from the collaboration between Alexander Wang and H&M. For this collaboration Wang wanted to design new pieces from scratch (unlike many of the previous designers who have collaborated with H&M), with only a couple of items inspired from his archive. The collection will hit stores November 6th, will you stand in line?

Alexander Wang’s Spring 2015 Runway Bags are Ready to Hit the Gym

Alexander Wang’s Spring 2015 Runway Bags are Ready to Hit the Gym

If you’ve ever wondered what a pair of retro basketball sneakers would look like if they were flayed and then restructured into a fancy designer bag (and if you have, why?), then I have, somewhat implausibly, some good news for you: that’s basically the gist of Alexander Wang’s Spring 2015 runway bags.

Bags That Are Bags But Also Another Thing has surfaced as an unlikely trend, and the clutches, satchels and backpacks that graced Wang’s runway even had rubberized soles on their bottom corners, accented with the kind of clear air bubbles that shoe designers used to use as a visual signifier of their brand’s superior cushioning. So if you want to chuck these bags on the ground, go right ahead. They’ve got excellent shock-absorption!

While the designs are clever, in a way, they also lack the refinement that would makes this kind of translation a success. The combinations of suede, leather, nylon and rubber are too on-the-nose to feel expensive or as clever as they might be, if only a little bit of editing had been done. Check out all the bags from the runway below.

OH MY GOSH

Look at her…

Butt. But seriously – we watched this on repeat. Maybe 10 times. OKAY, 15. Vogue went backstage at Alexander Wang to give some models a dance lesson with Nicki Minaj.

In defense of the model wearing the Balenciaga boots, Brie says they are really heavy…

Nicki, you can come by the Studio anytime.

ALEXANDER WANG SS15

Wang ss15

So, September is finally here which means that the international Fashion Weeks has just begun and first out is New York! A couple of days ago Alexander Wang showed his collection for spring 2015 and as always, he embraces a sporty vibe. Trainers are the core inspiration, where Wang has borrowed details from classic trainer styles such as Stan Smith’s (Adidas) and Flyknits (Nike) and interpreted them into dresses, skirts and tops in electric colours. The silhouette feels sporty yet super feminine where tight turtlenecks and cropped tops meets high-waisted pants. However, those comfy all grey looks are definitely my favourite ones.
