Greetings friends and bag lovers! Unbelievably, this is our last visit in July, and we hope your summer is going well. Our members have been shopping up a storm, and we are happy once again to bring you some of the best bags and conversations from the PurseForum.
We’ve come once again to Friday morning, and that means it’s time once again for an installment of our weekly roundup of bag deals. Retailers have mostly moved on from sale season (except Nordstrom, whose beloved Anniversary Sale is still going strong), but that just means the prices we’ll see in sale sections are as low as they’ll be all season.
One of the aspects I miss most about living in NYC full-time is the constant access to sample sales. I lived down the street from one of the main sample sale hubs, and sometimes walking home from work or a meeting meant popping into whatever sample sale was currently happening and snagging crazy deals.
When the Chanel Cruise 2017 Cuba collection debuted, I immediately started to hunt for images of the bags. The usual sites we check for photos didn’t have closeups of the accessories, and I wanted to see what Chanel did for this monumental show–the first of its kind for an international brand in Cuba.
Ornate, unique embellishments are one of the many reasons that Christian Louboutin‘s loyal clientele keeps coming back for more, and in the designer’s Fall 2016 collection, there’s no shortage of detail in sight. We’ve already showed you some shoes from Louboutin’s Pre-Fall collection, and now that the Fall 2016 bags and shoes are making their way to online retailers, it’s time to check out the highlights from Louboutin’s latest collection.
The Dior Runway Bag was the first big accessory debut of the post-Raf Simons era at Dior (on the runway, as the name would suggest), and I was, admittedly, a little suspicious of it. That was at least partly because of my immense affection for the bags created during Simons’s tenure at the legendary French design house and sadness over his voluntary departure, but it was also motivated by the bag’s proportions and how out of place it seemed with current trends.
