New York Fashion Week: It Bags with Caroline Issa

Yep, it’s that time again. In almost exactly one month, editors, buyers, models, and more will be disembarking planes and weaving their way through Manhattan as New York Fashion Week—the Spring 2016 edition—comes to life. And whereas Fall market—which takes place in February and March—is a sort of street style show set in the tundra where a killer statement coat is the key piece, this round takes place in an altogether more temperate climate. The key piece this September and October from New York to London, Milan to Paris? The handbag. We asked Caroline Issa to select one for each city over the next three weeks—and a look to go with them all, too. Let’s kick it off with Gotham City.


Tod’s medium fold leather shopper

“An easy dress with a lot of impact is perfect for pounding the streets of New York so I’ve chosen this gorgeous printed dress with pockets (a must!) and an easy Tod’s bag in contrast white to add even more graphic impact!”
