Couture Snob Heidi and I are obsessed with Pierre Hardy shoes and bags (he also designs shoes and jewelry for Hermes in addition to shoes for Balenciaga). When we first saw his now iconic bag two years ago we called all over the world to get our hands on one– Heidi successfully got one direct from the Paris boutique but I had to pass, it was just too big for me. Like Goldilocks, I tried the satchel but found that too small. But fast forward to 2008 and Pierre has finally answered my prayers! A fabulous new version for Fall that is just right for everyone! Named the “New Square Bag”– it is 13″x13″ (which will hold my laptop!!!) with straps that fit flat on the shoulders so you can tuck the bag squarely beneath your arm- perfect, right? The contrasting leather trim is also wider on this bag, which lends a 60′s mod vibe. But what color? I love them all! The blue suede with navy trim is divine but the purple is jumping out at me. I will have to think about this some more, which do you prefer? $1,485 at Barneys New York. Call Pam or Cory at 469-221-4807 to order!
