C.NICOL   EVIE BAG HAZELNUT CROCO STAMPED LEATHER   www.cnicol.com   380 pzmagg

The 90s called: they want their bags back (only they don’t). Yes, as the 90s recast their magic in the way that fashion is but an ever-repeating cycle, the baguette bag is visible once again, nestled into the crook of style mavens across the country.

Camel and Yellow

Yes, you read that right. Less styling suggestions for a particular garment this month, more a visual guide to the recent rightness of camel and yellow as a combination.
