Reed Krakoff - Classic, Gorgeous and Nothing Like Coach

Originally I was planning to do a review on the best Satchel bags this season as I have been searching for one myself, and dreaming of a Proenza Schouler PS1 Crocodile Satchel. That was until I found Reed Krakoff's Spring 2011 collection, I was amazed that the Creative Director behind such an average company as Coach was capable of designing exceptionally luxurious items. As I inspected each one of the bags in his signature collection I realized that it was going to be very hard to narrow down the best of the best. So here we are, these are my favorites. I will be selling my kidney for one of them, just not sure which one yet.

Love Affair With Lingerie

The approaching Valentines Day was the reason I started this epic search for the perfect lingerie,
Im sick of seeing the same frilly neon pink matching bra and panties in the window of every underwear store. I can't think of anything good to come out of Valentines Day whether your attached or not. There is so much tasteless and boring corsets, bras and stockings so I set out to find something Romantic, Charming, Sexy and not slutty.
Etam's Spring / Summer Collection manages to capture these qualities and portray a virginal innocence, which is very difficult when half naked. The colours and details in this collection are perfect not to mention a lamb was carried by a model  during their popular runway show. Here are my favorites in this stunning ad campaign with Natalia Vodianova
