Derek Lam’s Hollywood Moment: The Romina Sac


One of the hottest designers of the moment in Hollywood is undoubtedly Derek Lam.  His latest arm candy, the Romina sac and the Catia, have been seen on A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow and young starlet Rachel Bilson and is getting lots of paparazzi attention!  We all need a big tote in our busy lives– the Romina is fabulous and functional with chain detail, side flap pockets (like pants!) and Derek’s signature tassels. It’s also a lot lighter than his previous efforts due to the silk lining instead of heavy suede. Derek Lam Romina Bag is 14″x15.5″ in size and available in beige or grey for $1,695 at here I know it’s time for lighter shade bags but the gray is a fab alternative to black for summer– plus it will take you through fall/winter effortlessly.  If you’re in NYC, head over to the Derek Lam boutique–212.966.1616.  Jump for more photos!

    This is the first Derek lam bag I’ve liked. The chain really adds to the tote and I would do the grey as well. it won’t get as dirty

    You better go to Barneys or the new Derek Lam store (open soon i think) and check it out, more thoughtful details than you ever think of…. Pls do more research before leaving stupid one liner comments….
