Fendi By The Way Light Blue

New York Fashion Week commenced today, and that means a bit of mayhem for most fashion websites and writers. The PurseBlog team tackles NYFW in a bit of a different way; our focus is on the bags and accessories going down the runway, as well as the bag trends on display among the show-goers themselves.

Balenciaga Metallic Edge City

Balenciaga released its metal-edged bags a couple of seasons ago, and yesterday, I found myself taking a look at all of the versions on Balenciaga’s website. When I came back to PurseBlog to see if we’ve shared these bags with you, and realized we haven’t.

PurseBlog Rue La La Boutique

As most of us do, I have a slew of sites that I check regularly. Many revolve around shopping, and one of my favorite, daily go-to sites is Rue La La. I use Rue regularly to grow my collection of bags (like my latest Givenchy Antigona), but also for shoes, clothing and home decor, all at a healthy discount.

Reed Krakoff Felt RK40

A couple weeks ago, I introduced the Reed Krakoff RK40 to you, and now there’s a new iteration of this bag which, coincided with the brand’s new Soho boutique opening. It may be a material you wouldn’t associate with a bag, but this limited edition version is made from Reed Krakoff’s signature grey felt.

Bottega Veneta Spring Summer 2015 Collection

The understated elegance Tomas Maier creates for Bottega Veneta translates across all platforms, from his collections to his campaigns. The latest video showcasing The Art of Collaboration from the house was directed by Tomas, along with famed Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki.

Celine Trio What Fits (5)

When it comes to buying a bag, one of the most important things to consider is what will fit inside. Of course we care about the aesthetics and the quality, but the main purpose of a handbag is to carry things.

PurseBlog Picks Feb2015 We are always hunting for the perfect pieces, from handbags to beauty products to clothing. We created PurseBlog Picks to showcase our favorite items we find on the Internet, because there is so much that we adore and we know you will, too.

Ralph Lauren Ricky with Light and USB

There is only so much you can do with a handbag, which is why finding a great design when it comes to aesthetic, quality and price is so important. The vast majority of the time, designers are not looking to reinvent the handbag or what it means to consumers.

Louis Vuiton Pallas

I was thinking about brands that are popular but that I don’t cover that much anymore, and Louis Vuitton came to mind. Like many others, my first high-end designer bag was from the brand, and it was the tiny Wapity Clutch (which I still own and still adore).

itbag2015 We’ve already told you some of the bags to watch for 2015, and Vogue wants to ask you which bag you are lusting after. For the new year, Vogue put together a list of bags they believe will be it bags, and the mag wants you to vote to decide which bag is the next big thing.
