Celebrity-Bags-August-4

This week we have your usual slew of models, heiresses, actresses and people who model but are arguably more famous for friending other famous people. (Here’s looking at you, Gigi Hadid.) It’s late summer, when celebrities tend to scatter to the far reaches of the Earth in search of a beach where the paparazzi won’t bother them.

None of us are picking the bags we love in a vacuum. Instead, they’re often reflective of our more general style preferences, and for many bag lovers, our selections can reveal a lot about our personalities and personal tastes. Because we love to use handbags and accessories as a jumping-off point to talk about all kinds of things, we’ve decided to do just that with our new series, Bags and Beauty.

Chanel-Velvet-Boy-Bag-3700

It seems like Chanel puts out new bags at an almost impossible pace, and now it’s time for another new set to lust after. Chanel’s Fall 2015 Pre-Collection bags have arrived in stores as well as to the brand’s online lookbook, and we’ve got all the images and price information below.

Miranda-Kerr-Mansur-Gavriel-Bucket-Bag

When I first set out to see which bag supermodel Miranda Kerr has been carrying lately, I expected to find plenty of photos with her and her beloved Hermès Birkin; it’s been an omnipresent piece in her impressive collection for years.

Balenciaga-Giant-City-Bag

Happy Blue Moon Friday, Roundup readers! We have reached the end of July, and for many of us that means summer is winding down. We know it is a hot one for most of you, and we thought we would finish off this month with some cool blue reveals from the PurseForum‘s busiest designer subforums.

Brutus Chanel Bag

If you follow @purseblog on Instagram, you may have already seen the newest addition to the PurseBlog family. Vlad and I adopted Brutus, our three-month-old German Shepherd/Boxer/Golden Retriever (we think) mix, from Jamie’s Rescue in Miami Beach last Sunday.

Summer is traditionally kind of a slow news period for the fashion industry, but this summer has been anything but boring. There’s been a lot going on, from Louis Vuitton discontinuing a popular line to Hermès offering boxes with unknown contents to its online customers.

Bally-Sommet-Fold-Small-Satchel

I’m always thrilled when a brand has stepped up its handbag game, and that’s why I’ve been keeping an eye on Bally since I saw the brand’s Fall 2015 lookbook months ago. The Swiss leather goods company has been around since 1851, and the addition of Pablo Coppola as design director in 2014 has made the line’s bags feel incredibly fresh.
