Francine Ballard's Rantings of the Accessory-Obsessed.
Angel Jackson Fall 2010 Lineup
Designer Handbag Hookup:
I have been LUSTING after the White Lakota Seric Fringe Tote. Unfortunately, the white sold out in 5 seconds flat. Oh well, I guess I’ll settle for the Bamboo, or maybe the Black…wasting no time tho…word is, this bag has been snapped up by some uber hot celebs.
Available (exclusively in the US) at designersocial -$675
THE BRITISH ARE COMING.. ANGEL JACKSON HITS US MARKET
British design team Millie and Katie Smith have waited until the perfect moment to strike, and apparently this is it. Armed with celebs Kate Moss, Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga, Katie Holmes, Alexa Chung and Fergie in their back pocket- it won’t be hard for them to steal the spotlight pretty darn quick, but DesignerSocial has the exclusive for now.
Ethically sourced and crafted in Bali, the bags are made from watersnake and leather with the most intricate detail, hardware and design. With vibrant colors and wild textures, the bags naturally appeal to a chic underground Brit-punk crowd (who will no doubt be so pissed when we all get our hands on them via designersocial.com). But no matter how big they get, you can be proud to say, you saw them here first. Don’t you just love the internet?

FLY AWAY! TREND IN THE MAKING: FEATHERS
We’ve seen them here and there, for awhile now. After all, they’re what put British accessory designer, Angel Jackson on the map. Maybe it’s more of a fashion-fantasy thing- as in it looks better in your bedroom (or in a look book) than on your head or over your shoulder going to grab a cup of coffee. OR, maybe it’s grabbed a hold of the GP in a bigger way, and this trend has wings after all..

PSW rules.
