It’s not that men have more functional needs that women (not by a long shot); often, it’s that they prioritize them far above aesthetics, because that’s what they’ve been socialized to do, and that’s why their bags are designed differently. The Rag & Bone Canvas Herringbone Messenger Bag is all substance, with just enough style to finish it off.

It’s Friday again, and even though sale season is creeping ever closer to its end, we’re still diligently stalking markdowns across the Internet to ensure that the bargain shoppers among us get the best bag deals available. Below, check out what we found this week.

In handbags, just like in soccer, there are certain superpowers who rarely face defeat. Just like Germany has steamrolled its way into Sunday’s final of the actual World Cup (our sincere condolences to Brazil), the Chanel Boy Bag, whose allegiance we had attributed to Germany because of Karl Lagerfeld’s birthplace, has risen to the top of the 2014 PurseBlog Handbag World Cup.

Paris Couture Week brings out not only the best of the best in clothing on the runways, but its attendees are also a very particular sort. Because couture stands separate from the roving circus of the four big ready-to-wear fashion weeks, it tends to attract a more well-edited set of attendees, industry insiders and celebrities alike.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most talked-about events in retail, and now it’s begun. If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, that is – guess that’s one of the perks! Now through July 17, cardholders get early access to the sale, which includes a ton of brand new fall merchandise, as well as things like cosmetics and fragrance, which almost never go on sale.

Bergdorf SaleSomehow, despite the fact that we thought everything had already been marked down that possibly could be, we’ve found another set of fresh markdowns for your shopping pleasure. Starting today, our friends at Bergdorf Goodman have both decreased their existing sale prices and added new pieces to the sale selection, which means that some great things are now up to 75% off.

Even though we’re only halfway through summer, stores everywhere are starting to fill up with the first vestiges of fall – knits, leather, suede, dark colors. We’ve tried to put these pieces as far from our minds as possible, but it’s just not possible any longer.

We already know what Louis Vuitton’s quest for fancier customers means on the high end of the brand’s price spectrum, but changes in LV’s mid-range bags, like those made of Epi or Vernis leather, have been a little slower to materialize.

As we continue to inch our way through summer, the advancing date means just one thing in the fashion world: fall collections are starting to pop up all over the Internet. Céline’s Winter 2014 Handbag Lookbook just popped up online, and we’ve got all the bags below.
