Retail Therapy June 2014


Tech Class
Technological advancements give women on the go the opportunity to decorate the devices they hold dear. Whether reworking a jam-packed calendar or emailing tonight’s dinner plans, there’s a case for the occasion. Verdant green leather cradles an iPad in a sleeve that resembles the everyday clutch, French Connection Envelope Party, $58. Inside Handbag Butler’s Mighty Purse is a battery pack that allows textaholics to charge on the go, $100 for this sleek eye-catching metallic cache. Marc by Marc Jacobs targets convenience with Mildred, $148, a shiny smartphone wallet in spring’s favorite raspberry tone.


Great Heights
After the sun sets on a laid-back afternoon spent with sandy toes on the shoreline, it’s time to transition to footwear better suited for summertime revelry. Fendi’s Gea coral leather ankle strap sandal lends an elegant but playful mood with bright color and honeycomb metal detail in the least expected spot, $1,100.


Plays Well With Angles
Geometric influence breathes new life into the floral, whimsical pattern trends of the past. This summer is all about razor sharp lines and blocks of fresh color coming together in syncopated harmony. Yves Saint Laurent Medium Betty boasts deep ocean blue and teal hues and a gold chain strap that begs to be draped over the shoulder every dewy night, $1,890.
