I read at Bryan Boy (he says he’s so gay he sweats glitter– it’s true, I hugged him at Marc Jacobs and had glitter all over me for DAYS!) that Esteban Cortazar will be parting ways with the house of Ungaro due to disagreements of marketing strategies (I’d take a leap if Lindsay Lohan was offered up as my muse, too). Such a shame as his Fall 09 bags are really kick ass. Whereas he showed a tough girl edge for Fall, Summer at Ungaro is all about feminine style. I am drooling over these bags with soft bow and studded detail. Who knew bows and studs could look so good together!?!? I’m leaning towards black (after years of rainbow colored bags I’m back to black) but there is a delicious violet, a classic camel and a soft baby blue– seriously something for everyone. At $1,450 it’s also a helluva a deal. At Ungaro.com
Hopefully the talented Cortazar will start his own brand. I’ll be first in line to buy!
