Moody Photos Of CFDA Award Nominees (+ Handbags!!)

Because handbags make the world go round. Just like fur boxing gloves!

Posted on

The program for the CFDA Awards — the Oscars of fashion — is called the CFDA Journal. Each year the Journal hires a top photographer to capture the nominees and their work, and publishes the material on extremely luxurious cardboard-like paper stock which is then bound into something like a cross between a book and a magazine that puts Broadway Playbills and all your friends' wedding stationary combined to astounding shame. Here, BuzzFeed Fashion has an exclusive first look at the photographs of the nominees for best accessory design, all shot by Peter Lindbergh in the typically serious and seemingly emotionless mood that defines fashion warriors of this caliber. Enjoy!

Known for: the P.S. handbag, the granddaddy of all American-born "It" bags, putting monograms to shame since its heart-stopping (to fashion people) birth about four years ago; shoes that attract street style photographers at fashion week like a swarm of locusts over Africa.
