Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Monogram Infrarouge

Monogram bags may wax and wane with customers, but they’ll always be a huge part of many brands’ sales. Monograms easily identify brands to onlookers, and many customers first find their way to love designers by recognizing the monogram; it’s an easy association.

Kylie Jenner Givenchy Antigona

I know, I know–so many of you don’t want to hear anything else about the Kardashians. But I’m not here to gossip about them, I’m here to share a bag I spotted on Kylie Jenner’s Instagram page that I fell in love with, and I just now found it available for sale online.

Fendi 3Baguette Project (1)

Last week, when New York City was experiencing one of its coldest days ever, the Fendi Madison store was heating up. The store had its grand opening with a star-studded event, but earlier in the day, Vlad and I had the ultimate pleasure to see the store prior to the official opening.

Dee Ocleppo Fall 2015 Bags (1)

You might not have heard of Dee Ocleppo handbags yet, but expect that to change. Dee Ocleppo launched her handbag line in 2012, and this year, Dee is already making an impact on the accessory market. We featured Dee last year when we looked in her handbag, and this past fashion week we joined Dee, her husband (Tommy Hilfiger) and a group editors in her apartment in The Plaza to preview her Fall 2015 collection.

Louis Vuitton Price Increase

UPDATE 2/24/15: We’re being told by multiple members of the PurseForum that the price increase for Louis Vuitton will be hitting next week, with one person saying March 1st is the date their sales associate told them.

We recently brought you news of an impending Hermès price increase, and now rumor has it Louis Vuitton will be increasing its prices soon as well.

This past New York Fashion Week was a bit of a let down on a variety of levels, from the seriously frigid temperatures to the lack of great bags that went down the runway. There were some magnificent collections when it came to the clothing, but overall, the handbags weren’t amazing.

Chloe Drew Mini Chain Shoulder Bag in Red

Last April, I wrote about my feeling that Chloé had lost its groove. When it-bags were all the rage, Chloé was leading the pack with its Paddington bag; I bought two of them, which I still own. But over the years, Chloé struggled to keep its handbags in the limelight, and as a handbag lover, I found myself rarely looking to see what the brand released.

Fendi Micro Peekaboo Satchel Bag

Bag: Fendi Micro Peekaboo Satchel Bag

Price: $1,550 via Neiman Marcus

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Just when you thought mini bags reached their peak, Fendi decided to micro size already tiny bags and I can’t get enough. Sure the bag doesn’t fit much, but many are using these micro bags as charms or evening bags.

New Dior Diorama Bag (1)

The accessory market is always shifting; slowly, one designer moves up the ranks while another movies down and trends ebb and flow. Céline had a major moment, for quite a few seasons, and then the Chanel Boy Bag followed. Of course there are others, but over the past couple of seasons, it’s been those two who have had the most people talking and shopping.
