Everyone falls into their own patterns with their bags. Some people are constant bag-switchers, with options to match their ever-changing moods, color palettes or social occasions, while others pick one or two steadfast options and use them almost constantly until they’re worn out or a better bag presents itself.
Not only is next week Christmas, but it’s also my 30th birthday. (Yes, unfortunately, my birthday is Christmas Eve.) I’ve been non-stop shopping both for my loved ones and for PurseBlog’s gift guides for the past month, and in that time, I’ve noticed a couple things that I wouldn’t mind receiving for either of next week’s gift-giving occasions.
We’re still in the thick of sale season, thankfully, and that means there are still scores of lust-worthy bags available at our favorite retailers on steep discount. This week, we’ve carefully selected well over a dozen from some of the most popular brands we cover on PurseBlog, including Givenchy, Valentino, Saint Laurent and Fendi.
When we talk about a brand’s handbags, we usually talk about how a creative director influences their creation, but that’s not nearly the full story. Brands that make products in multiple categories have layers upon layers of creative management, and although a creative director guides the people below him, it’s often an accessories or leather goods director and the people he or she oversees that are principally responsible for a design house’s big handbag hits and misses.
