Introducing the Chanel 19 Bag  

Back in March Chanel presented its Fall 2019 collection, which was the last under the creative direction of Karl Lagerfeld. Chanel’s newest bag was designed along with Virginie Viard, and it made its debut on the runway of Paris Fashion Week earlier this year. The bag, called the Chanel 19 Bag, is aptly named after its birth year, and it is said to be inspired by the classic 2.55 bag. Like the new 19 Bag, the 2.55 was also named after the year it was created, as the bag was designed by Coc

Tuesday Shoesday: 10 Perfect Fall Finds  

October is in full swing and now it seems that the fall weather is finally here to stay. Last week the week started with an 80 degree day here in NYC and ended with a gloomy, chilly Friday. The heat has finally left us which makes me much more inclined to start to shop for fall and winter. I snagged a couple of new coats earlier this month—a cozy sherpa pullover and a long two-toned trench, and now it’s time for me to add a few new pairs of shoes into my fall rotation. Now more than ever...

I’ve Been Favoring My Leather Bags Lately  

I've been a dedicated Louis Vuitton lover for the last decade. I've owned roughly 10 LVs since I became a serious purse collector and have always regarded my Louis bags as my favorites. I currently have seven Louis Vuitton bags in my collection, and it is important to note that all of them are made of coated canvas. Coated canvas is made of fabric, typically cotton, which is then coated with wax or resin and blasted with heat to seal it. For years, it has been my longtime favorite material f...

Rihanna Carries Dior and Bottega Veneta on the Same Day  

We love to feature Rihanna as frequently as possible in our celebrity posts, but it’s been a while since anyone snapped a truly premium pic of her carrying a good bag. But today, we are doubly blessed! Other celeb pickings aren’t too shabby either, but Bella Hadid’s new bag has us stumped. It’s rare that Bella carries anything that’s not easy to ID from 50 paces away, so we’re particularly intrigued. If you have the intel, be sure to let us know in the comment

Refresh Your Office Wardrobe with Our Business Attire Approved Picks  

When it comes to business attire, I will be the first to admit that I'm not riveted by the wardrobe options that fall into the workwear category. I’ve been working in an office environment for ten years, and I can't remember a time that I was enthused to shop for blazers, basic blouses, or dress pants, but is anyone? Business attire is traditionally conservative and often comes across as stale, but it doesn't have to be that way! There is nothing worse than feeling bland or uncomfort...

My Bags are More Than ‘Just a Bag’  

When we selected October 10th as National Handbag Day 7 years ago, we weren’t aware that today is also World Mental Health Day. Last year, I read some comments on social media of people thinking we were trying to take away from a far more worthy cause, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. There is a place for both of these to be celebrated, and in some ways I find they intersect, hear me out. World Mental Health Day is an incredibly important day, and hopefully with more pe

Hearing there’s a price increase on a bag you already pined for, saved for, and planned for. 4. Life’s too short. I’m buying the bag. 5. Proudly carrying your designer bag and someo

From Saint Laurent and Staud, to Chloe and Mansur Gavriel, these shapely picks offer new angles to your favorite (and more traditional) handbags. While you may not use one as an everyday bag, many of the below work as fun accent pieces for an evening out or a posh daytime event.

This year’s Los Angeles event was this past Saturday, and it was shockingly well attended. Even Julia Roberts was there, and it was a big deal, because she went to a polo match in a movie once.

Louis Vuitton Introduces a Brand New Belt Bag In Monogram Vernis  

It’s been a few seasons since belt bags burst back onto the fashion scene and though many thought they were a trend that would come and go like the wind, they remain relevant, with designers releasing new versions every season. Belt bags appear to remain a go-to shape even through 2020, as the popular waist bag shape was seen worn by models throughout the spring 2020 runway shows. Of course, Louis Vuitton jumped on the belt bag bandwagon early on, releasing an updated version of a vintage

Purseonals: Chanel’s Clutch with a Chain  

There’s something to be said about a very small and practical bag. At least, that’s what I thought before purchasing the Chanel Clutch with a Chain. To be honest, I’m not even sure if I should classify it as a bag. Maybe “small leather good” (SLG) is a more accurate description? I’ll let you decide.

A treasure trove of new designs to covet, there’s nothing better or more exhilarating for a purse lover that discovering a fresh new brand. I recently found a British brand that gave me that feeling, DeMellier. The bags are sleek, sophisticated, and have a city vibe aesthetic that I adore.

Micro Bags and Clutches Took Over the Spring 2020 Runways  

Whether you love them or you hate them, there’s no denying that Bottega Veneta‘s the Pouch and Jacquemus’ Le Chiquito bag were two of the most talked about items in the handbag world this year. Both are currently considered ‘it bags’, and though the popularity of them cannot be ignored, both are impractical in their own way. Despite this lack of wearability, designers for spring 2020 seem to have taken a cue from these of-the-moment bags as micro bags and hand carri

As I get older, I find that, little by little, I get preppier.

Take belt bags, for example. They used to be called fanny packs, and are basically the opposite of timeless. It took them quite a while to bubble back up into mainstream fashion, but here they are at last! We’re sudden

When a new designer takes the reigns at a design house, it takes a few seasons for them to get into a groove. At Chloe, that’s exactly what happened when Natacha Ramsay-Levi took over for beloved designer Clare Waight Keller. Waight Keller was known for producing big bag hits such as the Drew and the Faye. And while Ramsay-Levi has introduced new designs for the brand, her collections have often played off of old favorites. However, for Spring 2020, Ramsay-Levi presented an accessories co...

I've been a longtime admirer of exotic handbags but have never even dreamed of purchasing the real deal due to budget constraints. I love finding looks for less and after admiring several snakeskin-inspired handbags this season I became hooked on looking for exotic styles at a less expensive price point. Commonly used exotic materials are crocodile, alligator, ostrich, lizard, stingray, and snakeskin and I don’t discriminate, I covet them all. I have always found exotic bags to be aspir...

However, a year ago Valentino chose to shy away from its beloved Rockstuds and introduced a Rockstud-free handbag for Spring 2019.The VRing bag put a focus on Valentino’s brand new V logo, and though this season the Rockstud is indeed back, the focus remains largely on Valentino’s bold logo.

Set in the Grand Palais with another ornate set design, a staple for Lagerfeld and the house, this set showcased rooftops of Paris which allowed for models to stroll on linked walkways. Not the most memorable set design (Lagerfeld was a mastermind when it came to themes) but a classic one paying homage to Coco Chanel who said "I've always lived in attics or palaces." ...

The Latest Statement Piece from Gucci Is the Sylvie 1969 Plexiglas Mini Bag  

One of the reasons many of us are purse-obsessed revolves around the ability a handbag has to transform an outfit. Sure, plenty of our bags are meant to be our daily, functional bags, but we wouldn’t call ourselves handbag aficionados without an appreciation for the artsy pieces designers offer. Many of us own those special pieces, knowing they are meant for specific and special occasions while also knowing that the bold statement they make is worth the lesser wear. This is the case with t

Introducing the New Louis Vuitton Pochette Bag That is Everywhere  

I can’t remember the last time I felt the urge to drop everything and run to the store to buy something, but that’s the exact feeling that I got when I discovered the Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette. First spotted on Valentina Ferragni a mere ten days ago, we weren’t even sure of the exact name of this bag (bags?) at first. In the days prior you guys helped to identify it, and I soon spotted this interesting combination of Pochette accessories worn by both musical superstars (thin

So here are a bunch of celebs at their casual best: celebs with no pants, celebs in bra tops, celebs in overalls! It’s all here. Toni Colette and Jennifer Garner are also here to remind us what adults are actually supposed to look like. Take note, “IT” girls under 25! One day you’ll all be over 30, and I won’t

Riccardo Tisci’s Influence Shines Bright In Burberry’s Spring 2020 Bags  

Last September, former Givenchy powerhouse designer Riccardo Tisci made his runway debut at Burberry. Immediately it was apparent that big changes were afoot at the iconic British brand. As Burberry aimed to modernize and reach a larger consumer base, Tisci looked to his work at Givenchy and implemented elements that worked into his designs for Burberry. To start, Tisci designed and debuted a brand new logo, which pays homage to Burberry’s founder Thomas Burberry. In addition to introduc

JW Anderson Plays With Textures and Shapes for Its Spring 2020 Bags  

JW Anderson first rose to popularity in the fashion world for his menswear designs. Eventually he expanded into RTW, and then LVMH purchased a stake in the company back in 2013. The brand was eventually able to expand into accessories as well, likely due to the backing of LVMH. As his profile expanded, so did his popularity, and eventually JW Anderson bags became a favorite of indie fashion lovers around the globe. Known for his modern, often sporty, and so very British aesthetic, JWA logo bags
