Our EIC on Her Go-To Spring Handbag (and Paris's Best Croissants)



Catching up with our editor in chief can be a tricky task. Kat Collings and I technically work out of the same office in West Hollywood, but she’s rarely in her seat, as she’s visiting our offices in London, scoping out new designers in NYC, and scooting off to appointments here in L.A.—when she’s not scoping out really, really good vintage finds in her free time.

So when I Slack her to ask some top-of-mind questions about the must-know spring handbag trends, I’m not surprised to hear that I’ve caught her in between runway shows and press appointments and croissant sampling at Paris Fashion Week. (On the Very Important topic of croissants, she says it’s a tie between Du Pain et Des Idées and La Maison D’Isabelle, ICYWW like I was.)

Still, she was kind enough to answer my questions, walk me through one of her favorite spring looks, and give me a peek inside her go-to spring handbag—the perfectly Parisian, perfectly iconic Guirlande de Cartier. Keep reading to see what she’s got stashed inside, and get her take on other must-know accessory trends for the coming season.
