Marc-Jacobs-Python-and-Sequin-Trouble-Bag

Bag: Marc Jacobs Python and Sequin Trouble Bag

Price: $5,500 via Net-a-Porter

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Marc Jacobs left Louis Vuitton to focus on reviving and expanding his eponymous label, and this bag is a step in the right direction.

Paris-Couture-Week-Spring-2015-Celebrity-Handbags

Paris Couture Week is such a nice way to start a fashion season. Before the month-long slog of shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris, the industry’s best and brightest gather at a handful of shows to see the world’s most exquisite garments.

Thom-Browne-Fall-2015-Bags-8

If you, like me, went to a particularly preppy college, or you grew up in a part of the country that counts boat shoes as a closet essential, then you’ve probably seen plenty of clothes with little whales and turtles embroidered on them.

Scandal-Season-4-Episode-10-Recap

If you’re a longtime reader of PurseBlog, you know that we’ve recapped lots of different shows over the past five years. Starting today, I’m trying my hand at one of my personal favorites–Scandal. We originally picked it because Olivia Pope has such a stellar handbag collection, but unfortunately, our girl Liv spent most of last night’s mid-season premiere in a cell without proper access to Prada.

Bag-Deals-January-30

As you may have noticed, online sales are shutting down left and right. Net-a-Porter’s semi-annual sale ended earlier this week, SSENSE’s ended not long ago and the Barney’s sale is in its last days. That means it’s more important than ever to search hard when looking for the best bag deals for our weekly roundup, but, as we do every Friday, we rose to the occasion.

Heritage-Auctions-Valentin's-Day-Luxury-Accessories-Sale

We’re always in favor of rewarding yourself or someone you love with a fabulous handbag no matter the occasion, and the first-ever Heritage Auctions Valentine’s Day Luxury Handbag & Accessories Auction is your latest opportunity to pick up something rare, exotic or sold out from the world’s best brands.

Want-It-Wednesday-Snow-Day

As you might imagine, the New York-based section of the PurseBlog team spent the day at home with our laptops yesterday, despite the fact that the snow storm wasn’t quite as apocalyptic as we had anticipated (and for that, we are thankful).

Coach-x-Baseman-Buster-Le-Fauve-Tatum-Tall-Tote

I’ve been excited for Coach’s Spring 2015 handbags to arrive ever since I saw them at the brand’s runway show back in September; the collection felt modern and light-hearted, like it could bridge the gap between the brand’s longtime fans and the fashion-forward audience that Coach hopes to attract.

Louis-Vuitton-Fall-2015-Menswear-Bags-5

While we all sit under a blizzard in New York, a lot has been happening in Paris. Couture shows just started, and immediately before them, the world’s biggest menswear brands opened the Fall 2015 show season. One of the last shows on the schedule was Louis Vuitton, and under the guidance of men’s creative director Kim Jones, the brand’s iconic monogram canvas has made a comeback.

Bag: Gap Python-Embossed Leather Tote

Price: $120 via Gap

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Sometimes we come across great bags in unexpected places, and in this case, it’s also at a great price. Gap has been slowing expanding its leather offerings, and this versatile shape in greyscaled python is hard to pass up, especially for well under $200.
