Yves Saint Laurent Classic Duffle 24

Yves Saint Laurent Classic Duffle 24: YSL Without Y
Price: $2,150 S, $2,650 M, $3,150 L
Where to Buy: Saint Laurent Stores,
Who Carries It: Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss,
Bagopedia's Comment: Hedi Slimane's first move after taking over the YSL- removed the Yves. It made the fashion industry talk for a few days. Then people realized it was just to create a controversy.

The first bag that Hedi Slimane made is this Classic Duffle originally designed for Gwyneth Paltrow. 

Now Kate Moss is carrying it.

The bag won't be available until January 2013. However, you can order it. It comes with 3 sizes and many colors. 

If you are famous, they might let you have now.

Charlotte Olympia Holiday 2012 Clutches

 Christmas Pudding Clutch, $695.00

 Toucan Clutch, $595.00

Frostie Embroidered Clutch, $595.00

Charlotte Olympia Holiday 2012 Clutches: The Winner the Holidays
Where to Buy: All Net-A-Porter
Bagopedia's Comment: There are more parties and family functions to attend in December. Bagopedia loved these small clutches and had no clue how to carry them.

Now I learn that it is easy to carry them. What I do is I still carry my tote bags soI can still carry everything I need and want or gifts. When I arrive the place, I check my tote with coat check or ask the host if there is a place for me to put my totes. Then I take the tiny clutches out. There will be a phone, a tiny mirror,  and a lipstick. I guess that is all I need. If I need more, I will go back to my totes digging them.

And these tiny clutches gain more attention than my Birkin bags. Men who adore you can start the conversations from here.

GUCCI Zoo Handbag

GUCCI Zoo Handbag: Not Just For Kids

Price: $515.00
Where to Buy: Gucci Stores,
Who Carries It: Victoria Beckham,
Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia loved the GUCCI Zoo series when it was launched. Finally I get this chance to write about it.

The series is so adorable that even adults like me can't help loving the items. The tote bag can be used as an organizer inside your tote bag. It is small but not too bad. The width is 30 CM. If you are a tiny person and cute type, you might be able to make it.

The tote is too small for me. Bagopedia purchased the Porcupine coin purse. It makes me laugh when I took my coin purse out. Sometimes it makes the store clerk laugh too.

Wheel Your Luggage?

 Alaia Animal-Print Calf Hair Travel bag, $6,785.00, Net-A-Porter
Givenchy Nightingale Trolley, $4,660.00

Wheel Your Luggage?

Bagopedia is afraid, I mean really afraid of seeing people rolling luggage in the airports. When Louis Vuitton started to make these wheel things, I was like: OK, at least they looked like Louis Vuitton luggage. Then I found more and more companies are making luggage on wheel. I am like, I am sorry. I can't stand it any more! Now Even Givenchy and Alaia is making them!

I know there is a huge market for this. Call me old fashion. I still think air travel is very elegant (Maybe I watch too many episodes of the TV show Pan Am). It freaks me out when I see people wearing shorts, torn sweats, tank tops, and flippers wheeling their luggage. I understand maybe in Miami International, but not JFK. There are many things to afraid of when you fly- the baby crying, the kicking, the latitude, and now the wheel.

Sometimes I have to give Kim Kardashian credits for wearing a fur coat and leather pants at the Miami International in September. At least she wears something for other people's pleasure.

Bagopedia had a discussion with my collies about this issue. They told me the wheel things are much more convenient and won't ruin your shoulders. Unless you have babies. You don't need so many things to fly. I get really annoyed that when I am boarded late, there was no room on cabin to locate my bag. Bagopedia's carry-on is always a 40 CM Birkin. All I need is a sleeping pill when I fly.

Celine Trapeze Bag: Developing Love

Where to Buy: Celine Boutiques, Barney's,
Who Carries It: Celine Dion
Baggopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia is surprised that how I develop my love with Celine bags. The only bag I liked was the totes. Then I wrote an article about that I wasn't crazy about the Luggage totes. I also found the Phantom bags really ugly.

Then guess what? I have them all! They don't give great impression at first sight, but look better later. I still haven't loved this Trapeze bag yet. However, as my pattern, I might end up getting it.

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Candy Wrap Clutch

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Candy Wrap Clutch: An Arm Candy

Price: $60.00
Where to Buy: Selected H&M Stores,
Who Carries It: Rita Ora,
Bagopedia's Rating: 5 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia has never been a fan of the luxury brand cooperates with H&M. I has never lined up for the Versace, Marni, or CDG collection. However, I did line up for the MMM collection.

I got this clutch as well as the mirror leggings. I love something is just fun and not so serious. It adds glitter to my winter clothes which are all totally dark.

I think it is a great deal to have this all leather clutch for just $60.00. The collection is totally sold-out. If you missed the bag, you can pay more on ebay.

Miu Miu Madra Bi-Color Double Handle Box Bag

Miu Miu Madra Bi-Color Double Handle Box Bag: A Bright Winter

Who Carries It: Sienna Miller, Emma Roberts,
Where to Buy: Saks Fifth Avenue,
Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Color-blocking is still popular this fall/winter. You can see style icon Sienna Miller (Yes) and Emma Roberts (Maybe later) are carrying this beautiful Miu Miu bag. I love the color in the front- between red and orange. 

The bag has a open top but a middle zipper compartment. Even though the bag has 3 compartments- middle zipper and open front and back, it doesn't look too chubby. 

The bag also come with light and dark blue combination. Bagopedia likes the red better. It really depends on you are a red person or a blue person.

Prada 2012-13 FW Floral Tote: Eye-Catching Piece

Price: $2,350.00
Where to Buy: Prada Boutique,
Who Carries It: Lily Allen, Jessica Alba,
Bagopedia's Rating: 5 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Prada keeps surprising us with its cutting edge designs. Bagopedia is a huge fan of Prada. I always look forward to seeing the designs for the next season. It never disappoints me. I also find that Prada's designs are so fashion-forwarded that other companies are copying its designs years after.

This 2012-13 FW floral tote is the most significant piece of the whole collection. It is an eye-catching piece. I love how they sew white flowers on a classic Prada bag. It just makes winter feel like spring.

Where to Buy: Saks Fifth Avenue,
Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: This fall/winter's bag are so boring that Bagopedia doesn't even know what to write about. I went through pages and pages of websites and haven't been able to find a bag that I wanted to talk about.

I found this Kate Spade clutch which I think it is adorable. The bags this seasons are so bored even this clutch cheers me up. This bag isn't small. It is perfect for traveling. It can be used as a travel pouch as well as a dinner clutch. For sure it will be a conversational piece.

HERMES Crocodile Birkin

HERMES Crocodile Birkin: JLo's New Boytoy

Who Carries It: Jennifer Lopez,
Bagopedia's Rating: 5 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia spotts that Jennifer Lopez carrying her new toy- HERMES Birkin in hot red crocodile in Paris yesterday. It is hard not to spot this bag. What else do I need to say? 

Last week Bagopedia purchased a crocodile in Amethyst purple. This bag is almost black with a purple shine. It is just so beautiful. The bag is in crocodile Porosus Lisse which is Australian salt water crocodile. That is the highest end crocodile skin that HERMES makes. Only HERMES can make such a gorgeous color.

I already have a croc. Birkin in black and would love to find her a nice home. If you are interested, please visit my online store

HERMES Ghillies Collection

HERMES Ghillies Collection: Detail-Oriented 

Where to Buy:
Who Carries It: Sofia Vergara,
Bagopedia's Rating: 5 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopeida's Comment: Remember me? I am Bagopeida who hasn't updated this blog for months. Thanks for keeping coming back visiting. The reason that I haven't updated this blog is that I was busy opening an online store selling Birkin, Kelly bags and other luxury goods. The store was opened on September 05 and has been doing well. Now I can take a break writing articles again.

It is really exciting to see the HERMES Ghillies collection. This collection goes to both Kelly and Birkin. It comes with green, favue, ruby and two tones. 

I like this collection very much. I think it is better looking than the color-blocking collection or the club collection. 

I have the Kelly Ghillies in Fauve (Tanned Leather Color shown Below) in my online store. If you are interested, please visit my online store

I mainly sell Birkin bags. I also have a Birkin in this color 30 CM, a Birkin in Ruby 30 CM, and a Birkin in Ruby 35 CM. 

If you are looking for HERMES bags, please let me know. I only sell authentic bags.

Who Carries It: Blake Lively
Bagopedia's Rating: 1 Bag (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Let me start with the shape- when I carry this bag, I couldn't stop kicking it. It is long and awkward to carry it. Then the color combination is really dark and dull. Not for Bagopedia.

Bagopedia's Rating: 2 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia isn't crazy about the concept of making a smaller duffle bag as a daily bag. It doesn't look attractive even the color is trendy. It is also funny to carry it. It looks like a luggage.

Miu Miu Jewel-Handle Large Clutch


Miu Miu Jewel-Handle Large Clutch: Jekyll And Hyde

Price: $1,495.00
Where to Buy: Bergdorf Goodman,
Who Carries It: Florence Welch, Bag Snob's Tina Craig,
Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopeida's Comment: As Bagopedia looks at my new style muse Florence Welch carries this clutch, I immediately decided to purchase this bag.

I didn't fall in love this this clutch at first sight. Evermore, I never own a Miu Miu Bag even I have more than 20 PRADA bags. I love how simple PRADA's designs are. Miu Miu to me is a fancier version of PRADA. 

The bag didn't catch my eye at first time. Sometimes things look different when you well put them together. The color is the first thing that caught my attention. I love this purple color. I also look at the pink and black. They all look great.

I also find out that this bag comes with a woven nappy strap. You can remove the fancy rhinestone strap and wear it as a necklace. It looks like a good size day bag and can turn into a fancy night clutch. 

The price is $1,495.00. It is fairly reasonable considering it is a nappa bag and comes with a fancy necklace. Bagopeida is amazed how different straps can totally change the look of the bag.

See how style icon Florence Welch carries it: Miu Miu from Head to Toe.

J. Crew Papaya Leather Shoulder Bag: Eat Fruits

Price: $245.00
Where to Buy: Net-A-Porter,
Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopeida's Comment: The colorful shoulder bags are popular recently, especially those in fruit colors.  If the shoulder bags are not your style or the color is too bold, this bag is a great test-drive. For $245.00, you might find a brand new style for yourself.

Alexander Wang Pelican Satchel

Alexander Wang Pelican Satchel: I Like This Wang Bird

Price: $985.00
Where to Buy: Barney's New York (Pre-Order),
Colors: Black and Bandage
Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Alexander Wang's bags are always inspired by birds. This bag is called the "Pelican". Bagopedia doesn't think it looks like a pelican but that doesn't matter. I love to have a Wang's bag but always find them too busy looking. I love the clean line of this bag which isn't very common on Wang's bag design. The price tag is also nice. For a designer's leather bag, you are likely to pay at least 2K for one.

Love Moschino Doggy Satin Clutch

Love Moschino Doggy Satin Clutch: Hello Puppy

Price: $250.00
Where to Buy: Saks Fifth Avenue,
Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia has been a bag lover since I was a kid. I started to collect bags when I graduated from the university. A couple of years ago I started this blog to share my love of handbags with my dear friends and family members. 

Thank you for coming to visit this blog. This blog's readership is getting larger by day so I need to make sure I order the bags I like first. The bag that I ordered before writing this entry is this Moschino clutch.

Bagopeida has a weak spot for cute animals. This Love Moschino doggy bag has two cute doges on top of a beautiful gold-silver color satin. I am not crazy about the logo outside but this clutch is cute enough to purchase. The price tag seems to be a Hello Kitty price.

Alexander McQueen Blackbird Nylon and Leather Package Tote

Alexander McQueen Blackbird Nylon and Leather Package Tote: A Trendy Shopper

Price: $305.00
Where to Buy: Saks Fifth Avenue,
Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)
Bagopedia's Comment: As my local government decided to banned plastic bags, Bagopedia is a huge supporter for the ban. In Europe, plastic bags are not very common like North America. Bagopedia has spotted women carrying bags like this one. They stop by the local stores to pick up things before going home from works.

Bagopedia loves the print. The most similar one I have seen is the HERMES which cost more than a thousand dollars. This bag isn't designed for grocery. It is handy to pick up things on the way home from work. I also love to use it for traveling. Sometimes I love a break carrying a extremely light-wieghted bag from my Birkin.
