BAO BAO by Issey Miyake

Have you seen one of these eclectic bags on the streets? You're looking at none other than Issey Miyake's newest creation--or piece of art, I'd say. Touted as "a bag you can feel", the BAOBAO handbag and accessories collection is not only stylish but also a conversation starter.

Bao Bao by Issey Miyake

Sold at speciality locations like the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and at Issey Miyake boutiques, BAO BAO bags are hotter than ever. I received a pochette for a holiday gift, and it's super stylish and versatile, especially for day or evening events. What's really cool about all BAO BAO bags is that they can fold differently and therefore create different shapes due to what is inside of them. Miyake's outlook on the BAO BAO collection is that they become "shapes made by chance". It is the ideal bag for contemporary, busy lifestyles. They are available in a multitude of colors and in different shapes and sizes.

I can definitely attest to its light and flexible nature. The pochette is small but still large enough to fit your phone, wallet and other small essentials. There's also a shoulder strap, so the bag can be worn cross-body. The BAO BAO pieces are truly a dynamic addition to any collection.

What do you think of Issey Miyake's newest line?

"Haute" Color of the Spring: Lilac

It's no secret that pastels are in this spring. Just check out Louis Vuitton's Spring 2012 ice cream parlor ad campaign--full of pastels!

A color I've noticed is making its rounds among the fashion houses is lilac.  Most notably, Balenciaga's introduction of Glycine has turned heads. Glycine is available on a number of bags and small accessories--one of them being the Giant 12 Silver Velo. Gucci also has a bag in lilac--the Soho medium shoulder bag--so major with the tassel and brand insignia. Last but not least, Marc Jacobs has a Little Stam Bag in purple, which is particularly eye-catching.

What do you plan on wearing this spring?
