CHANGE IS IN THE AIR

Change is in the air. Women are demanding to be heard. We no longer want to march to the same old tune. Whether we are breadwinners, moms, students, or all of the above – we are each unique.

goldno.8 was created for YOU. Strong, smart and individual. We are no longer satisfied with buying a look straight off the pages of a fashion magazine. We no longer want to be told how style ourselves. We want to create our own look. goldno.8 allows you to do just that. We give you the tools to create a bag that is as cool and individual as you are. Trick it out, clean it up — your bag will transform with your mood, outfit and tastes.

At goldno.8 we are all about change, self-expression and disrupting the status quo. We are doing business the new way by selling direct to you. We all benefit – you get amazing quality at direct-to consumer prices – and we get to know you.

The Bag You Need Right Now

You know those days that feel like a sprint from the minute you drop your kids off in the AM ‘til you rush to meet your friends for dinner, 25 minutes late… only to realize you forgot your credit card during the day-to-night purse swap?

Here’s the deal: you’re busy, and important, and aren’t going to let your to-do list compromise your style standards. Designer Ariane Gold, of Ralph Lauren and Isaac Mizrahi (and a Manhattan mother of two), has been there, and created the ultimate accessory for girls trying to GSD.

goldno.8 was created to offer women a luxury designer bag that didn’t look exactly like every other woman’s designer bag, and transformed with them throughout their demanding days.

Her newest drop, the Bag in Bag, has been an instant hit, selling out of the Black colorway immediately (it’s now back in stock!). With a classic silhouette and sumptuous leather offered in 3 colors, fashion girls have been grabbing up this perfect daily purse.

But the secret to the Bag in Bag obsession is its versatility: the chic quilted lining that peaks out the top of the leather shell is actually an entirely separate pouch that can be removed and used as a fashionable evening accent.

Trust, you’ll want to get your hands on this bag before it sells out again.

The biggest bag trend coming fresh off the runways is giving us double vision — literally.

The double bag trend lets you skip over the unpleasantness of choosing just one favorite bag. Why not have both? The best part is that there’s an option for everyone, no matter your allocated bag budget.

Best Fashion Collabs You Haven’t Seen Yet

Fashion was once an exclusive arena — the trends were dictated by the style elite. Outside of the designers themselves and maybe an influential editor or celebrity, the customer didn’t have much of a voice in their clothes, shoes and bags.

That’s been changing over the past few years, thanks to the revolutionary growth of social media. Suddenly, you, the shopper, are the most important influencer. Your “like” and “follow” are vital social currency, deeming one brand cool and another irrelevant.

Fashion houses have started looking to their audience for guidance, creating a culture of collaborations between fresh, new brands and even bloggers.


While those exclusive collaborations definitely release some lust-worthy pieces, are they really speaking to you? Taste is so incredibly personal. You could be loving the Off-White x Jimmy Choo Elisabeth boot but also thinking — did they really have to wrap that entire shoe in tulle? Or who knows, maybe you’d make the splurge for a Kith x Louis Vuitton keepall if there was a white shoulder strap option.

But here’s the thing: when it comes to your wardrobe, YOU are the only influencer who matters.

Enter goldno.8: the first luxury designer brand to collaborate directly with you. A goldno.8 bag is an entirely customizable experience — your color, textile, pattern and decorative decisions come together to create a one-of-a-kind piece that’s tailored to your personal style.

Once upon a time,

there was a single It Bag each season that every fashion girl had to have. The tiny Fendi Baguette of the late 90s made popular by SATC, the Chloé Paddington that set the early 2000’s into a boho bag frenzy and, more recently, that black Celine tote.

In the past few years, we’ve been seeing a lot more diversity on the It Bag scene. Now that Fashion Month is behind us and the Instagram girls have started discovering their fresh favorites, we can clearly predict the bags that need to hold your lipstick in 2018.

THE THROW-BACK DIOR

Fashion is having a field day with nostalgia, and Dior is the latest brand to bring back an archived favorite: their classic saddle bag. Just big enough to fit your cell, lipstick and wallet, and available in a slew of fresh fabrics and patterns, the bag you coveted back in the day is here again — with a little facelift, of course.

THE GOLDNO.8 BAG IN BAG

The double bag is big this year, and nobody does it better than goldno.8. With a variety of chic, on-trend colors (that you can mix & match yourself!) and the luxurious combination of leather and silk charmeuse, it’s a win from a style standpoint. But goldno.8 takes it up a notch — the inner drawstring pouch is actually removable, so you are getting two entirely different looks in one.

CULT GAIA

If a basket was good enough for Jane Birkin, it’s good enough for all of us. Cult Gaia has given the wicker basket a serious update, adding a modern silhouette and ample storage room, but the sweet femininity of it lingers. It’s sure to be a go-to bag for Spring.

MARYAM NASSIR ZADEH TRANSPARENT TOTES

Maryam Nassir Zadeh has created an ingenious way to make luxury bags even more luxe: use them to display all the rest of your expensive tastes. Her see-through bags are about to be everywhere, so we’d advise also investing in a Byredo hand cream, a Moleskin planner and an equally beautiful wallet.

It’s a good day to be a fashion lover

Thanks mostly to Instagram, the options for covetable pieces are boundless (and won’t blow your rent money / child’s college tuition).

The naysayer might even go so far as to claim there are “too many” choices. It can seem like a new brand it popping up on your feed on the daily! But there are a few undeniable leaders of the pack who’ve already garnered a cult following and are set to flood your
#ootd search in 2018.

These are the It brands you need to know to look
in-the-know head-to-toe in 2018.

The Clothes: C/MEO Collective

When did Australia become such a fashion capital? C/MEO Collective is just one of the seemingly dozens of on-point brands coming out of the sunny Down Under. Their designs are truly standout — they’re not afraid to play with color and pattern, and their silhouettes strike that precise
balance between sophisticated and sexy.

The Bag: goldno.8

goldno.8 is only a year old and already been featured publications like in Cosmo and Bustle, to name just a few. Their bags check all the boxes: top quality, versatile but chic designs and a founder story you can feel great about supporting (a woman entrepreneur and immigrant success story). Every aspect of their bags is custom and made in the USA, and they are guaranteed to be the most customizable purse / gym bag / clutch you’ve ever owned.

The Shoes: Dear Frances

Dear Frances is serious about quality, but has a lot of fun with style. Their designs run the gamut from classic leather boots to color-blocked heeled loafers. Made by artisans in Italy, you can expect shoes that handle your day-to-day without showing too much wear-and-tear.

The Accents: Mounser

Designer Amanda Mounser focuses on a sculptural approach to jewelry design. Asymmetric, exaggerated silhouettes experiment with the ideas of balance, proportion and movement. Minimal elements are thoughtfully joined offering an artful yet wearable composition.

The Marc Jacobs Belt Bag

The fanny pack is back under a new disguise: the Belt Bag. If we’re being honest, it’s really the height of convenience. A hands-free way to carry your ID and phone? Yes, please. It seems every designer has their version this year, but we predict the classic black leather and black studs option from Marc Jacobs will be the most popular pick.
