Tag Archives: color blocking
The 3 colors in this look makes me think of color blocking. The red pants really grab my attention…especially the length. This shorter length seems to be growing in popularity with fashion conscious men. The question is: will this look translate to the rest of the male population or simply stay in major metropolitan areas? And what do we think of this length?
CONGRATS TO TONI T WHO WAS THE WINNER OF THE BRAHMIN BAG
If you’re a regular reader of StyleDefined NYC you may remember when I was asked by Brahmin to be part of a design team made up of style bloggers to create a new spring bag. Well the result was this Jolie clutch! It combines fully functional style with some of the hottest Spring trends. This over-sized clutch is not only a wardrobe necessity this season, but mixes blocks of color with stripes for a chic, modern piece.
- large clutch with magnetic closure and removable strap
- back slide in pocket big enough for your ipad
- large interior compartment
- interior zipper pocket and keyclip
- strap to 23″ drop
This functions great both as a clutch and with the strap as a cross body bag. And I’m giving away the one pictured above! The contest will start today and run 2 weeks.
How can you win it?
and tell me why you need this @Brahmin bag.

Winner will be announced March 9th!
Last summer BRAHMIN invited several prominent style bloggers in New York to a special event: we were going to design bags for Brahmin. We were put into teams of 2 or 3 bloggers with one of their designers and given two different styles to design. One of my team’s styles was the clutch. We brainstormed what would be our perfect clutch. For us it needed to be oversized, with an open back pocket to slip our phone or ipad into, have an optional strap and be color blocked. We also decided that it should be an asymmetrical front flap that had a magnetic closure.
Tonight the unveiling of our design happened. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it was to actually hold a bag that I helped design. And I have to say it was a pretty funny coincidence that one of the two color choices completely matched what I was wearing! –sooo not planned! I know that it’s not a typical “street style” photo but decided to post it anyways…and if you want your own bag you can vote for your favorite design (Jolie, hint hint!) and be entered in a contest to win it in the Blogger Dream Bag Collection on Vogue.com, or wait for my giveaway here!
