Who Needs Shoulder Straps?-------
The new It bag you’ll be seeing in the front rows next month is a super-slim, stretched-out version of the Celine clutch you’ve been coveting for a couple of seasons now. Ms. Minimalism herself, Phoebe Philo, showed them at her pre-fall collection, as did other designers like Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci and Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci. But the trend isn’t just for the ladies. At the recent menswear shows, dapper dudes both on and off runways (Burberry, Jil Sander, and Valentino, to name a few) have been spotted with portfoliolike pouches ideal for toting around iPads.
