The “VBH” in VBH Luxury stands for Vernon Bruce Hoeksema — the stylish businessman, Valentino alumnus, and designer who founded this exclusive Italian accessories brand in 1999. Hand-sewn in Florence, Italy by highly skilled artisans, VBH Luxury handbags represent quality and craftsmanship at its finest. The label creates its mustard-yellow alligator skin totes, double-zip satchel bags, Art Deco-inspired crocodile clutches, and other stunning styles from ultra-luxurious leathers and exotic skins, and includes an engraved, limited-edition plaque inside each bag. Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow, and First Lady Michelle Obama are just some of the many boldface names seen sporting VBH, whose other creations include jewelry and home décor accessories.
Judith Leiber’s evening bags add an elegant (and utterly festive) dose of sparkle to your look this season. Shop clutches embellished with colorful gems, metallic alligator skin, and ruffled satin rosettes, and charming novelty minaudières — shaped like wrapped presents, retro rotary phones, and even pineapples and parrots — designed to add a pop of playfulness to your chicest LBD.
Luxe, outfit-making accents from Marchesa, Jason Wu, and more.
From party-ready frocks to winter-ready jackets, these must-have picks are sure to go fast.
