Moschino Handbag Hoodie

In the world of Jeremy Scott’s Moschino, nothing is ever what it actually is. That motorcycle jacket? It’s a handbag, or maybe a backpack. Those red and yellow arches are not actually a McDonald’s advertisement. That bag that looks like a Chanel suit and has the handles of a Chanel handbag? Chanel didn’t produce any part of it. Now, Moschino has taken a handbag and draped it around the neck of a basic black hoodie, because why not. Read More…

Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag

Pricing data from the mid-2000s can be hard to come by for any handbag; it’s not the kind of information that brands or stores keep in public archives, and PurseBlog itself was only just getting its start cataloging those sorts of things back in the mid-aughts. When the bags in question have never been sold online at all, the search for data only becomes more difficult, and that makes it all the harder to track the at-times-exorbitant price increases that those bags have received over the past decade. Racked did the dirty work of finding out how much Chanel’s prices have changed, and the result was surprising even to me. Read More…

Parabellum Full Grain Bison Day Bag

When you ride the New York subway every day at regular commuting hours, you see a lot of different kinds of bags; after all, New Yorkers can stow things in their cars during the day, and whatever we want to have from the time we leave in the morning until we get home at night has to be carried somewhere on our person. Invariably, men’s gym bags are the ugliest of these bags, and with the Parabellum Full Grain Bison Day Bag, I’d like to remind them that they can do better. Read More…

Chanel Fall 2014 Handbags 38

[Editor's Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We'll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we'll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]

More than any show this season, and perhaps in the history of time, Chanel Fall 2014 doesn’t require much of an explanation. Because I’m not sure exactly where that leaves me, though, I’d appreciate it if you’d allow me to be self-indulgent and give you one anyway. We can let Karl Lagerfeld host a fashion show in a faux supermarket, but I, personally, will not let him obviate my place in the universe. It’s my way holding on to some semblance of normalcy in a world where a fake Chanel supermarket is a thing that happens. Read More…

Models and great handbags go together like peanut butter and jelly. Some of our all-time favorite collection profiles have come at the hands of supers like Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss and Alessandra Ambrosio, and if there were a photo agency dedicated purely to documenting their daily outfits, we’d gladly delve into the handbag closets of even more models. Because there isn’t, though, we’ve decided to put together all that we could find from five of our favorite supers whose collections we’ve yet to dissect: Karlie Kloss, Chrissy Teigen, Kate Upton, Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel.

We’ve been waiting a long time to do this one, and finally, The Many Bags of Kim Kardashian has arrived. The controversial reality star’s bag collection is easily the biggest one we’ve ever dug through, and you might be a little bit surprised by what we found: a lot of fairly conservative choices among the seventy-plus bags we found, many of them used repeatedly over the span of years.

10 Best Celebrity Handbags Summer 2014

Celebs kept it surprisingly covered up and professional this summer (marvel at how many of these celebs are wearing blazers or leather jackets), so much so that I sort of longed for the rampant daisy dukes that came to define summer 2013.
