For a girl that carries a lot of junk in her everyday bags, I’m obsessed with evening bags and clutches. Perhaps maybe because they keep me a little more organized and prevent me from carrying my whole makeup collection in them. In all seriousness, if someone gave me the choice to carry a large satchel or a small evening bag that’s 1/10 of the size of the satchel I’d still pick the evening bag. I love that they are so small, compact and they usually have amazing detail on them. Speaking of bags with amazing detail, I’m currently obsessed with the Kotur “Margo” Lace Minaudiere. It’s pink, it has lace and it’s small so it’s safe to say that I really want it!
KOTUR was a hit on the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards. Below are a couple of our favorites that appeared on the red carpet.
The stunning Anastasia Griffith, who stars on Damages (co-star Rose Byrne is nominated) showed up carrying the Creel Basketweave Minaudiere in Gold.

Interview: Fiona Kotur Marin
Native New Yorker, now Hong Kong based designer Fiona Kotur Marin founded Kotur, the retro-glamour luxury accessory brand, in 2004, after discovering a vast treasure trove of decorative vintage fabric woven by European Couture Houses during the 60’s and 70′s.
Her background experience comes from designing accessories for Polo Ralph Lauren, Gap, and collaborating with long time friend, Tory Burch when launching her line.
She may have started out in the beginning by creating truely one-of-a-kind limited edition vintage brocade clutches, but since then she has added incredible exotics, metals, shells, lucite and rattan and has expanded her collection to include gorgeous minaudieres, everyday bags, work totes and evening clutches.
I was lucky enough to conducted a Q+A with this star designer and also take a sneak peak at some of her new pieces.
