I haven’t been that excited about the latest bags from Modalù, and I really thought I wouldn’t want another Pippa bag, but I just got an email announcing the newest color–pink. I never thought I’d want a hot pink handbag, but I actually adore it and it matches a pair of ballet flats I bought in Paris perfectly. It just looks like fun and makes me smile, and that’s always enough.
Since I’ve been back from Paris, I’ve been catching up on American fashion and exploring some new designers, at least new to me. Though he’s been around for years, Yigal Azrouël never appeared on my radar until recently, when I was passing some time in Saks and Neiman Marcus with a little retail therapy. His designs are fabulous. Of course, I’ve already found numerous dresses I love, in particular the sleeveless blue dress with the black leather detail. It’s such a perfect shape for me, but then so are most of the other dresses too. They’re simple and classy but they all have an edge to them, which I like.
You can find the line at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Some styles found at Nordstrom are not on the designer’s site, and some not found at all in runway shows, which is often the case. Things get changed dramatically or other things put in if a runway item didn’t sell but really a lot were not found
I actually liked a lot more stuff from the designer’s lower priced line, cut25 .
