Beth Goodman who designs under the label Marie Turnor who is known for her handbags has come out with the latest and I personally think coolest idea for a bag yet. She was inspired to create this bag after travelling through Europe and seeing chic Parisian women carrying a folded paper bag . To her this was such a simple , classic design . The' picnic clutch' is a prettier version of the folded paper bag. She also has a series that stems from that called ' The Picnic Group' which is roll top clutches in various sizes and leathers. She launched a jewel toned suede version this season. Such a great classic design, I'm surprised no one has thought of this before.


This is a sad day in the fashion world . Dolce & Gabbana designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been sentenced to 1 year and 8 months in prison and fined 500,000 euros. This all stems from them failing to pay  40.4 million euros in taxes. Their lawyer Massimo Dinoia is quoted saying
"Dolce and Gabbana will not go to jail now or ever,"
Fingers crossed that something can be worked out. If not it will be interesting to see who will take over the label while they are in prison.
