The offering is made to be one for the books by unprecedented collaborations with designers and brands like Marc Jacobs, Kim Jones, Tiffany & Co., Porter, and Sarah Jessica Parker who famously wore the bag as Carrie Bradshaw in the hit show Sex And The City. Ranging from clothing to accessories, the collection features unique interpretations of the coveted piece first designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi in 1997, and the spirit and geography of New York—where the bag gained its cult favorite status. Marc Jacobs’ take on the collection saw ready-to-wear inspired by the “gritty New York cityscape” with pieces emblazoned with the brand’s monogram, ‘The Tote Bag’, and ‘Fendiroma’. Tiffany & Co. transformed the bag into glittering arm candies with precious white gold fastenings, sterling silver, diamonds, as well as the unmistakable Tiffany Blue.

For Parker, it only made sense that her rendition of the Baguette is inscribed by her famed quip from the series: “It’s not a bag, it’s a Baguette.” The exterior of the bag comes covered entirely in degradé sequins, and in a palette of purple, wasabi, baby pink, or soft blue, with four interchangeable buckles. As for Porter, the luggage brand has put a utilitarian spin on the bag with the Bum Baguette, which combines Japanese craftsmanship and functionality with its hard-wearing bonded nylon.  Fendi’s own offering for the Baguette, designed by the artistic director of womenswear and couture Kim Jones, brings together mini and micro dimensions of the bag across the collection in the form of pockets on parkers, gloves, hats, and skirts.

Lindberg pushes the boundaries of luxury eyewear through its meticulous craftsmanship, which reflects in each of the brand’s designs. With tireless attention to detail and diligent engineering, the accessories label uses long-lasting and refined materials such as titanium, gold, buffalo horn, fine wood, and diamonds to create its must-haves.
Inclusivity and design go hand-in-hand with Lindberg’s identity, and through an extensive modular system, one has the chance to customize every aspect of the eyewear to their taste. Encouraging an exploration of personal style, Lindberg caters to all with researched eyewear specialists who offer handcrafted and dynamic customizations, and endless unique combinations. And now, the Danish eyewear brand proudly presents its collection of Precious frames, which are best known for their precise design, which takes inspiration from astronomy.
True to the brand’s heritage, the limited-edition Precious frames boast a lightweight feel, spotlighting the beauty of minimalism and simplicity. They also come with individually set diamonds that add the perfect amount of sparkle to eyewear, which promise to instantly uplift every look in the book, from a sharp work-appropriate shirt to a romantic black date night dress.

The Precious frame Capella is exceptionally noteworthy, and gets its name from one of the brightest yellow stars in the galaxy, which is represented by the marquise cut yellow diamond. Fun fact: naturally occurring fancy intense yellow diamonds are extremely rare – only one exists among every 10,000 yellow diamonds—and Lindberg’s Precious frames have been crafted to highlight these gems with their hollow temple designs, which work well for both genders.
For the eyewear connoisseur, these frames, crafted from 18 Karat gold, platinum, buffalo horn and diamonds, stretch the limits of accessorizing by blurring the lines between style and comfort. Achieved with the help of the latest and most innovative technology, these pieces are the new gold standard for the future of eyewear. While minimalism reigns in the world of Lindberg, the brand’s expertise is anything but. Lindberg’s ethos is rooted in an uncompromising dedication to quality and attention to detail, offering a daring display of delicacy and lightness.

With a number of high-profile collaborations in her career, there’s no doubt that Amina Muaddi‘s passion is palpable in every launch. For her latest, the Jordanian-Romanian accessories designer is taking things a step further by honoring her Arab roots through a full-fledged campaign.
The imagery accompanies Drop 2/22 of Muaddi’s namesake label beloved for its edgy heels, which are modeled by Imaan Hammam of Moroccan-Egyptian heritage in this campaign. The former Vogue Arabia cover star forms part of a Middle East and North African team enlisted by Muaddi to honor the collective Arab culture and the DNA of her brand. While the looks were styled by Jahleel Weaver, who is Muaddi’s longtime collaborator, friend, and stylist to Rihanna, the photos were shot in Cairo by Egyptian-British visual artist Dexter Navy.

“I had been trying to make this project happen with Dexter for quite a long time,” shares Muaddi with Vogue Arabia. “I really wanted to do something meaningful, an ode to my Arab heritage and a celebration of our culture.” Although born in Romania to a Jordanian father and Romanian mother, Muaddi and her family moved to Amman shortly after her birth, where she spent part of her childhood. “I had a big family and a lot of cousins who I would play all the time with,” the designer had recollected in a previous conversation with editor-in-chief Manuel Arnaut. “I had this garden where my family had figs and olive trees, and to this day when I taste figs, I remember Jordan so it was definitely an important moment of my life.”
In the campaign, Hammam wears the brand’s new embellished heels, which would fit right in on a red carpet walked by one of Muaddi’s many A-list clients just as much as they blend in with Cairo’s vibrant scenes in the campaign. “This project is important because it is close to our hearts,” says the designer. “There isn’t nearly enough representation and spotlight on people with our background. It was crucial for me to work with an almost entirely Arab crew.”

This Is the Sparkling It Bag Balqees Fathi, Salma Abu Deif, and More Are Crushing on Right Now

Quickly achieving It bag status, the Valentino Garavani Locò bag is a celebrity-loved creation to set your sights on. Spotted on the arms of stars including Balqees Fathi and Salma Abu Deif, the hero piece may be just what you need to complete your summer party look. Out of its many playful colorways, silver, orange, green, lilac, and pink come entirely covered in Swarovski crystals, making for ideal conversation starters. The story behind the bag’s name? Synonymous with locomotive, ‘locò’ is a romantic nod to the bag’s retro design and the idea of urban movement. As a reference to the fashion house’s universal territory, ‘locò’ is also “Latin madness pronounced in the French style and celebrated by Italian hedonism.”

The bags hold plenty of styling potential owing to their combination of ’90s allure and a contemporary feel, which Fathi and Abu Deif recently tapped into in unique ways. Emirati-Yemeni singer Balqees opted for a coordinated look with a glittering silver piece to match her heels with an aqua blue jumpsuit, while Egyptian actor Abu Deif favored contrasting colors by picking the orange bag with a black asymmetrical dress for a wedding.

Although the highlight of the bag is undoubtedly the VLogo Signature clip closure—which particularly satisfies logomania when covered in white crystals—the bag is not just a piece of arm candy. Keeping functionality in mind for the Valentino woman-on-the-go, the bags allow the handle to be detached, transforming them into a clutch. They can also be worn on the shoulder or crossbody with the addition of a chain strap. For those who love a minimalistic and timeless appeal, the Valentino Garavani Locò bag’s calfskin leather variations with metallic details are bound to be forever favorites.

Kuwaiti brand Marzook‘s It bag—the Pill—is having a playful transformation for its latest collection. Loved by stars including Beyoncé, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Ariana Grande, Amal Clooney, and Kylie Jenner, the label’s pieces have long been the ultimate accessory to dial up the glam factor of an outfit, and the new capsule aims to do that and much more this season.

“The capsule collection is inspired by Endless Summer,” shares Shouq Marzook who, with Fahad Marzook, makes up the sibling and designer duo who is injecting a dose of joy-sparking colors into the Pill bags for the new launch. “It is a time of the year when days turn into nights, outdoor living becomes the norm, and that feeling of being carefree makes us feel magical,” she adds. “Now that we are returning to a semi-Covid-free world, the idea of an incredible summer is on everyone’s minds.”

Aiming to capture and encourage this very mood, the Pill bag comes in five saturated colorways of Ivory Smoke, Blue Sky, Lime Green, Watermelon High, and Lemon Chiffon. “The flushed tonal effect is fresh and different from the previous Pill styles,” says Shouq of the pieces which feature one color all over—from the clasp to the strap—as a departure from the bag’s usual gold and silver accents. Whether accessorizing an already bold outfit, or a neutral one, the Marzook siblings want the new Pill bag to be the ideal “pop of excitement and an exuberant energy” to their customers’ looks. “We can see the Marzook woman, effortlessly stylish as she is, carrying one of the tonal bags to the beach with her coordinated swimsuit and cover-up,” they say. “She might be heading to a beach lunch with her friends ready for it to be a fun day-to-night kind of thing. This bag complements the Marzook woman’s sun-kissed skin and her summery outfits perfectly.”

The new Pill bag capsule collection launches exclusively online on Marzook.co on July 26, 2022, with Shouq adding that summer vacation hotspots like Mykonos, Capri, Sardinia, and Marbella are looking forward to stocking the launch for their fashion-savvy clients.

Messika’s new jewelry collection, ‘Beyond the light’ is a love letter to ancient Egypt, spotlighting authentic details and majestic diamonds to pay tribute to one of history’s most celebrated eras. While the whole collection, which was unveiled in Paris during Couture Fashion Week, is mesmerizing, it may be safe to say that the most alluring set from the line is the Akh-Ba-Ka, a milestone creation for Messika.

Bringing together a constellation of 15 radiant diamonds—all of which originate from one 110 carat diamond—the Akh-Ba-Ka set doesn’t just stand out for its immeasurable beauty, it also makes its mark as a modern must-have via its transformable pieces and technical innovations. Valerie Messika, founder of the Messika brand, it comes as no surprise, is especially proud of the Akh-Ba-Ka set, which also sublimates the mythical theme of the Egyptian winged scarab, a motif that’s hard to miss.
Crafted over 1,000 hours by experts, the set relies solely on diamonds and a base of white gold, and may be the star of the collection, but that’s not to say that the rest of Messika’s ‘Beyond the light’ collection is plain in comparison. Among the jewelry house’s newest creations is the Golden Shield, another noteworthy investment piece for those who love making a statement with their baubles. This daring set brings back the allure of yellow gold with its brilliant gold choker and geometric carved earrings.

Below, take a closer look at the beautiful creations that bring together Messika’s latest jewelry line.

Alicia Keys Thanks the Saudi Craftswomen Who Gifted Her a Personalized Bag Strap

Alicia Keys Thanks the Saudi Craftswomen Who Gifted Her a Personalized Bag Strap

A known advocate for women’s rights, Alicia Keys‘ humanitarian work was recently recognized by a Saudi-based non-profit enterprise during her trip to the Kingdom. After her performance at AlUla, the organization named Namat gifted the musician with a beautiful bag strap created with the aim of encapsulating everything she stands for.

Inspired by her hit song ‘This Girl is on Fire’, the bag strap was presented to Keys at the Women to Women event at AlUla’s Town Hall. The women that work with embroidery and design at Namat interpreted the song in their own words and chose the paragraphs and sentences that resonated most with them. The words of the song reflect and represent the aim of the company’s project through the employment of women and focus on their empowerment, which Keys was very appreciative of.

Soon after, the singer took to Instagram to personally thank the women who created her bag strap. “To the ladies who designed this beautiful piece for me from Namat, I just wanted you to know I got it and it is so stunning,” she said. “And literally the translation, the words, the energy, you captured it. You captured the meaning. You are the meaning which is why you captured it. You mean so much to me and I just wanted to tell you that I adore this and this is a very special gift to me and thank you for blessing the world.”
