Bags-and-Beauty-Givenchy-Antigona

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.

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.

Bag-Deals-July-31

We’ve come to the conclusion of another week, and, this time, another month. August is right around the corner, but there’s still time to shop summer sales if you know where to look. Luckily, we do, and we’ve packed the best bag deals the Internet has to offer for your easy shopping pleasure.

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.

Jane-Birkin-Hermes-Crocodile-Birkins

Hermès‘ marquee handbag design has been named after French actress Jane Birkin since its creation in 1984, but as of this week, Birkin would like that to change for at least some of the iconic Birkin Bags. The actress is unhappy with Hermès’ slaughter practices for crocodiles after being alerted by PETA, according to Agence France-Presse.

Bag-Battles-Givenchy-Antigona-Fendi-3Jours-Alligator

It seems like every season, more and more exotics are available, many of them at the extreme end of the price continuum. For Fall 2015, two of our favorite bags are going to be available in very similar shades of blue alligator: the Givenchy Antigona Bag and Fendi Petite 3Jours Tote.

Manolo-Blahnik-Handbags-14

Manolo Blahnik has always been a man who does things at his own pace. While almost all designers hopped on the platform bandwagon in the mid-2000s, Blahnik was steadfast, sticking with the single-sole shoes he’s made for decades. Now that the shoe trend pendulum has firmly swung in his direction, the designer has set his sights on a bag line for the first time.

The Many Bags of Sofia Vergara (36)

If you’re thinking to yourself, “Wait, didn’t PurseBlog already do a deep dive into Sofia Vergara‘s handbag wardrobe,” you’re not wrong. We did just that about two years ago, but because of a software glitch, it was gone forever. Today, though, we’ve pieced it back together, plus all the beautiful bags that Vergara has worn since.
