The go-to bag
Who: The Spanish luxury-leather house is a favorite of power players Kate Moss and Alexa Chung.
Why now: Celebrating his fifth anniversary as creative director, Stuart Vevers has turned heritage handbags into future classics.
The hot pieces: The butter-soft and slouchy ‘Flamenco’ is a chic off-duty bag, while the structured ‘Amazona’ means business.
The designer's take: "It's important that our bag designs are creative and innovative, but also with an understated quality."
a chic escape:
Champagne, cake and Choos – an irresistible combination. For one month only, the embossed leathers and swinging tassels of Jimmy Choo's SS13 collection are transformed into delicate treats at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental hotel, Hong Kong. Feast on smoked-salmon sandwiches with cream-cheese studs (an edible version of the Cayla clutch), plus miniature chocolate heels, based on the leopard-print pump.
