For Spring 2018, bags are truly coming in all shapes and sizes. Most prevalent of these on the most recent Spring 2018 runways is the circle bag, as many designers opted for unique silhouettes rather than classic styles. Featured in shows like Anya Hindmarch, Balmain, Christian Siriano, and Dolce & Gabbana, this style came complete in bold colors with fun embellishments, perfect for any occasion, day or night.
Most come in a convenient cross body style, making this piece easy to carry around for everyday use. For a version that’s slightly edgier, look for the circle silhouette in a clutch style, like this 3.1 Phillip Lim Alix Circle Clutch. To get the look yourself, make sure to also check out pieces like Brahmin’s Lane Melbourne bag, Anthropologie’s Carolina Circular Crossbody Bag, or Bembien’s Rose Bag, all of which are available online.

What a complete turnaround for Christian Siriano this season; there was a certain palpable shift toward a more sophisticated, grown, and overall sombre collection for fall — and we loved it! One could almost see the showgoers mouthing the words “love it” over and over again throughout the course of the runway collection, as Siriano pushed himself to experiment with a variety of textures and fabrications that all met with outstanding results.
There were of course, some superfluous, show-stopping gowns, with the majority of the pieces a perfect amalgam of glam and rocker edge. Of course, we can’t wait to see how the shoes on the runway are developed into the ‘real way’ via Siriano’s contract with Payless.

Bravo‘s hit TV Program “Project Runway”‘s Season 4 winner, Christian Siriano, has teamed up with the household name brand, The O-Cel-O™ (part of company 3M) to create his first-ever No-Scratch Scrub Sponge designs. Spinning off of the major Asian influences seen on the F/W 2011 runways, Siriano also derived inspiration for this new line of chic dishware cleaners from India, Africa, and Asian inspirations, “both patterns, Leopard and Muse, are meant to captivate the eye through the use of color and the latest trends,” explains Siriano. Available in packs of 2 for $2.59 and packs of 3 for $3.60, these funky yet fashionable cleaning devices can be brought home to your kitchen sink via mass merchants or find out where to buy online here .

As one of our most popular designers to come out of Project Runway, Christian Siriano presented his Fall 2011 Collection, a black orchids-inspired line which also features the new Christian Siriano for Payless Gold shoe line, in which the hoofed-toe and petal-adorned dress pumps served to accentuate his nature-inspired collection. The dark, earthy tones ranged from black (often stylishly layered in light, iridescent layers to create texture and volume) to a mauve pink and moss green. Siriano’s attention to detail and glamour were punctuated by the pairing of dress pumps, which complimented the sleek lines featured in his full, bouncing skirts and dresses textured to resemble a garden.
