My gorgeous girl, Caroline Issa, is positively unstoppable. The executive fashion director of Tank magazine and editor-in-chief ofBecause magazine (and constant street-style muse and sometime J.Crew model!) can add another hot item to her resume: designer.
Her latest endeavor, an L.K. Bennett bag collaboration, is a saucy fusion of traditional Thai embroidery and London cheekiness. The collection is much like energetic Caroline herself (she’s a Eurasian beauty whose mother is Chinese- I’m her other Chinese mom, determined to lead her down the path of marriage and homemade dumplings!). Leave it to her to inspire me to wear pompoms long after fourth grade. But how can any snob resist these bright and cheerful, romantic and worldly designs? Bursting with vibrant hues for the summer season, the folksy vibe is right out of a glammed-out fairy tale – and we could all use some escape every now and again. If you think the bags are great, just wait ‘til you see the shoes! Bags range from $425-$475 at L.K. Bennett.com.
