2015-Golden-Globe-Red-Carpet-Handbags

The 2015 Golden Globes took place last night, and that means that awards season has officially begun. As we do every year, we’ll be scoping out all the best handbags from the industry’s fanciest red carpets. Although our photo service was inexplicably light on pictures from last night’s main red carpet, we scoured both those photos and those from the after-parties to bring you over a dozen celebrity bag choices from Sunday’s festivities.

Prada-Saffiano-Cuir-Double-Bag

Last week, I spoke with Chavie Lieber of Racked about Prada’s current profit woes, much of which are tied to the recent underperformance of the leather goods that make up roughly 40% of Prada’s business. Lieber also talked to PB contributor Pattie Rechtman, luxury shoppers and industry analysts, and we all more or less agreed: Prada needs to do something about its handbag offerings.

Bottega-Veneta-Nappa-Leather-and-Intrecciato-Tote

Bag: Bottega Veneta Nappa and Leather Intrecciato Tote

Price: $4,400 via LUISAVIAROMA

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Bottega Veneta usually sticks with the classics, but the irregular stripes and gentle shading at the edges of the flat blush panels give this functional tote a ton of texture and visual depth.

Designer-Handbag-Deals-January-9

Sale season is winding to a close, but that simply means we’re redoubling our efforts to bring you the Internet’s best bag deals on a weekly basis. Today, we’ve found great pieces from brands like Valentino, Givenchy and Fendi, which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that there are still great deals to be had for those willing to put in the work.

New-Classic-Handbags

The number of handbags that I’d call true classics is relatively limited. The Hermès Birkin and Kelly fit the bill, of course, as do the Chanel Classic Flap and Gucci Bamboo Bags and staples like the Louis Vuitton Speedy and Noé.

Want-It-Wednesday-Best-New-Bags-Spring-2015

We came back from our winter vacation to websites full of new bags after which to lust. Now that we’ve had a few days to look them over, here are our picks for the newly arrived bags that we’d each love to own.

Hermes-2015-Price-Increase

If your new year’s resolution included buying more Hermès handbags or accessories, then you might want to move some money between your accounts and make some power moves, because time is of the essence. Both users on our Forum and shopping site Mizhattan have confirmed that Hermès will make a significant price increase in US boutiques before the end of the mont, affecting almost all of the brand’s product categories.

Valentino-Mixed-Floral-Tote-Green

Valentino’s heavily printed Spring 2015 were among the best of the entire runway season, and now the bags, in addition to some of their solid leather runway counterparts, are available for purchase for the first time. At Neiman Marcus, a selection of the bags (plus some new, off-the-runway colors of Valentino Rockstud favorites) are now available for pre-order, with actual delivery coming before May 7.

Vegan-Designer-Bags

If you love accessories and fashion but don’t love buying or wearing animal products, you have my sympathies. Several of you have asked me to do a leather-free bag roundup over the past couple of months, and when I set out to do just that, the irritation and frustration of trying to find a designer bag that fits that description became clear.

Vince-Handbag-Collection

We’re always excited to hear about a new handbag line, but especially when it’s coming from one of our very favorite apparel brands. When Vince launched a pitch-perfect selection of shoes a couple of seasons ago, we were hopeful that bags were the next thing on the agenda.
