Editor’s Pick: Pack it Up in the Dagne Dover Mini Tote

By  October 24, 2014

Discover your next obsession with our Editor’s Pick series, must-have products for your home, wardrobe, makeup bag, and office curated by Glam editors.

Dagne Dover

The one thing I don’t want to be called in New York City is a bag lady; but the one thing I’m not going to do is leave an essential at home.

When I head out every morning, I know there’s no coming back—if my agenda calls for work, #gymflow, happy hour, or covering a star-studded event, I’m going to need the tablet, athletic gear, lipstick, and heels to carry me beyond the 9-to-5. But hauling a hefty purse/tote/gym bag combo is not conducive to flexing on the ‘Gram. So, when it comes to balancing it all, Dagne Dover is my go-to.

The Dagne Dover Mini Tote keeps my must-haves on deck and preserves order in an otherwise messy place. Let’s face it—digging into the bottomless pit of your bag to find a business card or pen isn’t fun, especially at the expense of keeping your cool. With it’s no-fuss structure and compartments for every pretty girl vice, the Dagne Dover Mini Tote makes sure I keep it together at all times.

That Dagne Dover mantra is personified with large canvas totes, mini totes, and clutch wallets that, miraculously, have space—and a place!—for everything. Its aesthetic rivals luxury, high fashion bags and represents the intersection of where fashion and functionality meet. Best of all, each design is priced between $165 and $345, so you’ll never fall victim to splurging on that seasonal It-bag. That is something this Glam girl can be glad about.

Dagne Dover Mini Tote in Linen, $245

I like a very sophisticated woman, I like elegance. I think it’s still about taking the house forward. I think that’s what Oscar would have thought as well.” [The Cut]

Style Scoop: Nike Pushes For Women, How Vince Is Prepping for Growth, H&M Commemorates “The First Ten Years”

By  October 23, 2014

StyleScoopOct23Nike is turning its focus to women. With a recent surge in interest in fitness from females, the athletics brand is issuing a response. At Nike’s global women’s summit in New York, the brand unveiled its new spring/summer 2015 collections and took the opportunity to share its plans for growth in years to come—which, yes, involves targeting women. Models Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Damaris Lewis and Jeneil WIlliams were on hand to present the clothing, which included Pedro Lourenço’s collaboration with the brand. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Contemporary label Vince achieved fashion’s biggest IPO on the New York Stock Exchange since Michael Kors—and since it did, it’s only continuing to grow. To do this, Vince’s chief executive officer, Jill Granoff, plans to make more people aware of the brand. According to Granoff, the label has fairly low “brand awareness,” meaning, they’re not reaching that many consumers. But, “those that know us, love us, wear us and want to buy us.” With pushes in footwear and accessories, Vince is setting itself up to expand in more ways than one. [Business of Fashion]

In conjunction with the release of its Alexander Wang collection, H&M is launching a commemorative book inspired by the history of designer collaborations. Since Karl Lagerfeld did a one-off collection for the retailer, the industry has changed: “Inexpensive is not ‘cheap’ anymore, that’s why the luxury industry has to make an even bigger effort,” Lagerfeld muses in The First Ten Years. “I think all that is very healthy.” Starting November 6, the book will sell for $11.50 at 250 stores. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Burberry is touching down on Rodeo Drive in November—but in more ways than one. The three-story flagship store will open on November 7, and on November 19, the store will receive the 22nd Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award. The award has been presented to Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford, Gianni and Donatella Versace, Mario Testino, the houses of Missoni and Ferragamo, Edith Head and Diana Vreeland, among others, since its inception in 2003. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Finnair and Marimekko take a new step in their design collaboration with Finnair Airbus 330. The aircraft will feature a previously unseen blue colorway of Marimekko’s classic Unikko (poppy) print. The plane will fly from Finnair’s Helsinki hub to the airline’s long-haul destinations starting at the end of this year. [Glam Inbox]

Every day, we bring you celebrity sightings and stylings as seen everywhere from the streets to the red carpet. Whether they’re dolled up or dressed down, we can’t resist the need to know who wore what.

There’s no denying it: this season’s hottest accessory is a simple choker necklace. Based on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s chic look, we’re happily trading in our bibs and oversized baubles in exchange for pieces like hers. A metal choker is understated enough to merely complement a cool outfit, but doesn’t fade into the background. So, you’ve been alerted: get one, now.
