The Resale Market for Luxury Bags Just Got A Makeover  

If you don’t have a sneaker obsession to go along with your handbags, you might not be familiar with StockX yet. The company started as a spot for sneakerheads and streetwear fanatics to buy and sell the best rare, new-condition Jordans, Supreme releases, and beyond, but as the lines between high fashion and streetwear start to blur (and as the same shoppers find themselves with intense interests in both), StockX has similarly expanded to facilitate the easy, trustworthy buying and selling

5 of the Best Bags On Sale Now at Luisa Via Roma  

Here we are again, another week has come and gone, but don’t get me wrong I’m not mad about it, I am so ready for the weekend! The temps have been soaring well into the high 80s and low 90s this week, so there’s not much I want to be doing outside other then the necessary walking from place to place. When cooped up inside my little NYC apartment I constantly find myself mindlessly scrolling through my favorite shopping sites, and with sale season (still!) going strong there is

Introducing the Hermès 2002 Bag, Available to Buy Online for the First Time  

For a brand with as wide a selection as Hermès, the brand debuts totally new designs somewhat infrequently, compared to its aspiring competitors. For much of the luxury bag market, novelty is a must—shoppers want something new, and especially from brands not lucky enough to have one of the all-time classics in their lineups. For Hermès, novelty is merely an added bonus, at least in the form of new bags—the brand is stacked so deep in high-demand classics that new day bags are a smaller par...

A Closer Look at the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag  

I’m not sure when super tiny—borderline impractical, really—bags became a thing, but these days it seems like Louis Vuitton‘s most popular bags start with word “petite.” And from a price standpoint, these bags also happen to be among the most extravagant bags of Louis Vuitton’s current lineup. While I certainly have a lust for almost all of these adorable designs, speaking from a budget perspective, I can’t even truly consider adding them to my collection....

As we reported when it was announced, Off-White designer Virgil Abloh is the new creative director of Louis Vuitton‘s men’s division, and his first collection will debut tomorrow, June 21, at Paris Men’s Fashion Week Spring 2019. Abloh was a buzzy name in fashion long before he was appointed to the position at Vuitton because of his trend-perfect blend of streetwear ideas with designer fashion, and many in the industry are curious to see exactly how those tendencies will meld w

There’s only one thing we love more than a sale on designer bags, shoes, accessories and ready-to-wear, and that’s when an opportunity springs up for an extra discount on an already great sale. That’s exactly what Moda Operandi has for you right now: you can take an extra 15% off existing markdowns, resulting in total discounts of over 70% in many cases.

This Week in Celebrity Bags: Milan Fashion Week Men’s Keeps Fashion Bloggers Busy  

All of the most storied Italian fashion houses invited Europe’s most notorious fashion bloggers to sit runway-side during Milan Fashion Week Men’s. Suffice it to say, they did not squander the opportunity. As you might expect, American celebs are a bit more scarce at Men’s. Watching male models walk the runway in pants and bucket hats requires a commitment to fashion that a lot of them just can’t fake, I suspect. But fashion bloggers are always game! We’ll see what

I’m Totally Obsessed With This Tiny Suitcase Bag  

I’m a sucker for a good floral. My usual wardrobe tends to be dark, solid-colored and not particularly feminine, but a well-executed floral in just the right color combination always catches my attention. Maybe it’s because of my upbringing in Georgia—the South loves a bright print, after all. Just ask Lilly Pulitzer! And when I saw the SteamLine Starlet Vanity Case, I was immediately in love, too. The fact that it’s not really a handbag seems negotiable, at least in my imagi...

The 14 Best Totes to Look More Like a Beach Babe Than a Beach Bum  

Beach bags, especially in the era of social media (and especially Instagram), present a certain problem. It’s fun to look cute at the beach, especially if you’re going to take a few photos, and it’s fun to shop for beach stuff because much of it is so adorable and colorful. Going to the beach is an often-intense outdoor activity, though, and sun, wind and water can make it feel unwise to spend too much money on anything that’s making a trip out to the sand with you.

There’s no denying they are here to stay, at least for a little while, as not only have belt bags been a big part of designers’ Spring 2018 collections, but they’ve continued to pop up among many of our favorite bag brands’ lineups for Pre-Fall 2018 as well.

Thomas Maier, who has led Bottega Veneta for the better part of two decades, has designed his last collection for the house.

The World Cup is Here, and So is Louis Vuitton’s World Cup Capsule Collection  

Luxury goods and team sports usually only interact in one way: star athletes using their considerable wealth to buy cool stuff and flex it on Instagram. With sports that double as leisure activities of the wealthy—golf, tennis and yachting, mostly—luxury brands often dabble in direct sponsorships, but globally popular team sports tend to be reserved for sports-centric, mass-market companies like Nike or Adidas. The World Cup is a tournament unlike any other, though, which means everyone want...

The Tod’s Sella Bag has made its way into the arms of many an A-lister recently, even though it’s not a terribly new design. Many of these women are die-hard Tod’s enthusiasts.

Why Do Instagram Influencers Get Designer Freebies, and Where Do the Free Bags Go When They’re Done?  

In luxury fashion, there are pockets of time when seemingly every influencer suddenly becomes enamored with a specific "it" item. In late 2017 and early 2018, it was the Bulgari Serpenti Bag. Popular influencers like Victoria Magrath (@inthefrow), Tamara Kalinic (@tamara) and Lydia Elise Millen (@lydiaemillen) all sang its praises in posts that popped up within a few months of one another.

Real Talk with Amanda: Can Designers Chill Out with the $3,000 Handbags, Please?  

With bags that have been around for a while, like classic Chanel or Louis Vuitton pieces, it’s easy to notice prices going up because we have previous numbers for comparison. That’s why prices on those bags go up relatively rarely—raising them is an easy way to irritate existing customers. Those increases aren’t the only way that general price levels in the luxury bag market creep up, though — new designs help pave the way for overall increased price levels, and it seems li...

No one expected Raf to split after three critically acclaimed years, and because of that, there was no wind down in consumer interest and no expectation that a change would be coming.

Which makes perfect sense; while runway clothes might come and go seasonally, handbags usually last over an arc of at least several seasons, which means that when a designer knows that she and her deputies will be departing, it doesn’t make much sense from either a creative or logistical perspective to launch something new and then immediately hand the reins t...

If you’re suddenly seeing Oliva Munn‘s face everywhere (the Met Ball, late-night TV, Bravo, PurseBlog), it’s not just you. She has a new film coming out (Ocean’s 8) and her PR people are really turning it up to eleven. We’ve been admiring Olivia’s bags for years—in fact, we gave her her own edition of The Many Bags of… five years ago. But it’s high time to reassess the state of Olivia’s bag collection.

Are you excited about Ocean’s 8? Are you confused as to why they couldn’t populate the film with 11 female stars, so it would at least be parallel with the original? Are you perplexed as to why it needs to be an Ocean’s reboot at all, when it could just be its own awesome all-female jewel heist movie? Me too, but let’s just push those questions aside for now and focus on the amazing event carpet fashion moments that this press tour will undoubtedly generate over the cours

The PurseBlog Guide to Choosing Your First Designer Bag  

No matter your age or budget, buying something fancy for the first time can be a daunting experience, especially if that thing is for nothing other than your own enjoyment. There are a lot of emotions wrapped up in money and how it’s used, and even for seasoned shoppers, breaking a certain spending threshold for the first time can be a roller coaster of anxiety—just ask Megs, whose own experience with her first Birkin made her feel physically ill!

We saw the Petite Boîte Chapeau in the hands of celebs and Instagram style stars for months, but the public wasn’t privy to any of its details until the bag appeared on Louis Vuitton’s website. You guys certainly had a lot to say about this little bag, from the functionality of it to the price; many of you thought this ...

A Look at My New Saint Laurent Loulou Bag  

Years ago, I wanted to get a Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag. I always liked the bag and was intrigued when the brand introduced a slouchier version of the popular classic. But as much as I liked it, I never fell in love with it enough to purchase one. The shape was a little too similar to other structured bags I own, and even though I found versions I adored, it never sent me into buying mode. Then came the Saint Laurent Loulou Bag, and that bag I fell in love with. There’s something abou

That’s not to say that the brand hasn’t long made plenty of casual options, of course, but Bottega’s target customer has always been a woman with a place to be, whether it’s the office or a swanky event.

Before all that happened, I would have said that petite shoulder bags with short shoulder straps, a la the Fendi Baguette, wouldn’t be returning, either. Now, and with Prada‘s Resort 2019 bag colle

I don’t exactly know why, but until this year, I never considered the idea of using or purchasing a wicker or straw bag. While I can’t pinpoint the exact reason behind my anti-wicker attitude, what I can tell you is that my style isn’t overly girly or super feminine, and in the past, most bags in this category turned me off for that reason alone. I just never found a wicker bag that fit my style. Until now—enter The Prada Midollino Tote. I first saw this canvas and wicker tot...

One of the brands leading the logo nostalgia is Fendi, with its iconic double F print in brown and black.

Which is great, because Fendi just dropped a brand new capsule collection that’s all about taking its logo print to extremes...

Proportionally, bags usually come in two types: north-south or east-west.

Longtime bag fans are well familiar with these terms, but if you’re fairly new to the game, that’s what people mean when they talk about a design that way. In general, I’d say that east-west bags are a little more common than their north-south counterpa
