There’s an old saying about the only sure things in life being death and taxes, but if you’re a handbag buyer, there’s another inevitability: price increases. With brands like Chanel, Hermès and Louis Vuitton, they’re fairly easy to track; because the bags are only available from the company’s boutiques, all the new product arrives at once and sales associates warn their loyal customers in advance.


It’s like we blinked and fashion month is almost over. Milan Fashion Week has come to an end, and that means it’s time to do a post-mortem on what happened on the runways. From what I saw, there were few overarching trends in Milan’s handbags; each brand sort of did its own thing.

TS Notice 3_4 Kim Kardashian attended the Brit Awards to support hubby Kanye West, and over on TalkShoes, we have all the deets on the shoes she wore for the event. We also spotted Karlie Kloss at LAX, wearing supermodel-fave Stuart Weitzman boots. While Fashion Week has moved on to Paris, Gucci’s Fall 2015 shoes in Milan were very furry. We’re not looking ahead to fall entirely, though–Christian Louboutin is focused on Spring 2015 with this vivid Tribalou Collection.


Even as an American customer, British stores are some of my favorite online shopping destinations, both for inspiration and acquisition, and the MATCHESFASHION.COM Shoe and Bag Guide is here to do both. British style has such a sense of boldness and fun to it, which leads to different stock choices, even when it comes to the sites’ buyers making selections from US brands.

Sophie Hulme Holmes Cutout Leather Bag

Last week, we had quite a discussion over the lack of great American luxury handbag designers right now.

Chanel Price Increase 2015

Price increases for the big brands all seem to be hitting around the same time this year, and that is not good for anyone in the market for a new bag. First we told you Hermès was upping its already steep prices in the beginning of the year, next came the rumors of the Louis Vuitton price increase, and now it’s Chanel.
