#ItsInTheBag: Celebrating Our Exclusive Cambridge Satchel Mini Collection

Gilt + Cambridge Satchel Company Mini Capsule Collection BreakfastThe Cambridge Satchel Company‘s candy-colored bags are the go-to sidekicks of the street style set, so naturally we feted the launch of our new exclusive capsule collection of the brand’s Minis with help from a snap-worthy pack of bloggers, editors, and celebs over breakfast at The Pavilion in NYC’s Union Square. We treated guests to dozens of picture-perfect mini essentials (think Essie nail polishes and pint-sized Diet Cokes) to play up their brand new bags in covetable Insta-ready shots, no filter required. Get inspired by reality-star-turned-designer Whitney Port’s well-styled stash — featuring The Mini in pastel pink, one of 10 colors available exclusively on Gilt — and score your own from our sale, starting tonight at 9pm ET.

10 Things That Won’t Last (Including Gilt’s 90% Off Final Sale!)

orig

All things ultra-trendy are just that — piping-hot one minute, then gone the next. Which is exactly why you’ll need your trigger finger ready for our Final Sale event, starting today with Shoshanna, Zac Posen, Marni, and more in-demand labels up to 90% off. Add those must-have steals to our blink-and-you’ll-miss-them list — they won’t be around for long!

1. Selfies (You’re not Beyoncé, and you didn’t wake up like that.)

2. Cronuts (Croissants and donuts — standards for a reason.)

3. Juicing (Have all the juice you want, but don’t forget to eat.)

4. Culottes (Much like “fetch”, stop trying to make these happen.)

5. Flatforms (If height’s what you’re after, opt for a ladylike heel.)

6. Over-the-top nail art (Leave the 3-D embellishments behind and go super-sleek.)

7. Side boob (Let’s dial it back to the days of classic décolletage, shall we?)

8. Candy Crush (Lift. Head. From. Phone.)

9. Watching TV…on television (Frank Underwood and Piper Chapman have made binge-watching the new norm.)

Behind the Shoot: Rebecca Minkoff

Rebecca_Minkoff_outtake1For the city that never sleeps, there’s no denying New York City’s signature nonstop vibe. And luckily for Gilt’s creative team, the buzzy urban landscape is also our backyard — a perfect setting to capture one of our favorite labels, Rebecca Minkoff, in its element. We got the inside scoop from Art Director Jennifer Gonzales: “We chose to shoot around Flatiron because it has such great New York energy.  Almost too much, we discovered! Between Madison Square Park (Shake Shack!) and Broadway, there’s a ton of that typical Manhattan hustle and bustle — taxis, buses, pedestrians, tourists, food carts.”

Inside Glimpse: Eddie Borgo Shares Sketches & Inspiration

eddieborgo_moodboard_rs

Consider the pieces designed by Eddie Borgo—CFDA winner, fashion world darling, and re-definer of what “luxury” means in the jewelry space—the markers of a modern It girl. Diane Kruger, Sienna Miller, and Rihanna are all fans, and obviously, so are we—the line returns to Gilt today, and to celebrate, we asked the designer to share some of his inspiration in the mood board above (vintage Linda Evangelista? We’re sold!) and in the interview that follows:

StyleFile: Where do you generally turn for inspiration? 
Eddie Borgo: Art, architecture, geometry and form—paired with clever engineering.

SF: What’s the most unexpected source you’ve been inspired by?
EB:  I recently re-visited the jewelry collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London—they hold over 3,000 jewels from ancient times to present day. I was surprisingly not drawn to the contemporary jewelry, I was really fascinated by the 19th century pieces. At that time in jewelry design, the focus turned to the past and goldsmiths attempted to revive ancient techniques that imitated archaeological jewelry. The pieces were elaborate, and the compositions were complex.
