Easy to get confused: they seem true! We are talking about the coolest furs, in the sense of warm and right. Nice to wear with jeans for a casual chic look.
As we all know, there are garments that return and this season we have corduroy making a comeback and, I guess, are officially a trend now.
Now that I think about it, I don't believe I've ever owned anything of corduroy texture. One thing in particular that I truly love bout corduroy is that the fabric itself is not too thick or too thin, making it the most irresistible material for transitional fall clothes.

The founder Yi-Mei Truxes was on her way to work when a woman in a white linen dress holding a straw bag stopped her in her tracks. There was something about that image - a woman and her bag - that encapsulated more effortless style and intelligent beauty than Yi-Mei had witnessed in her 6 years working at Vogue Magazine. She couldn’t quite put her finger on what it was, but it was there. After failed searches within the mainstream fashion markets for a bag that evoked this same feeling, Yi-Mei started seeing glimmers of the “woman in the white dress” in the small, artisanal weaving villages located around the world. Bembien was born. From Bali to Morocco and Vietnam, Bembien aims to promote the cultures of these incredible international weaving communities.
10% of Bembien proceeds go to Nest, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) committed to the social and economic advancement of global artisans and homeworkers through supply chain transparency, sustainable business development, and widespread industry advocacy.
A sweetheart of a basket bag with a rounded top, fastened by a crisscross clasp. We especially love taking the Harper on vacation — its charm almost makes it a decorative item in your hotel room or apartment. Pair it with a floral dress, espadrilles, and an air of blasé.
A classic flap bag, but with a twist — in rattan with a bow clasp that softens its angular shape. The shorter strap makes it perfect for slinging over your shoulder to coffee dates and dinner parties with lipstick-stained glasses.
The kind of bag you take to lunch and leave on the table, because it looks too good not to show it off. A round, woven basket bag in the shape of a vintage film canister, and fastened with a bow or crisscross clasp. This bag looks dreamy on a beach blanket, café table, or, you know, any surface. Its round shape makes it versatile for day to evening.
The beautiful images you see are by the extraordinary talent, Lucy Laucht (@lucylaucht). Check out more of Lucy's work on These Foreign Lands.
