There’s been a lot of talk about designers raising the prices of their handbags, from Chanel to Louis Vuitton to Hermès. It’s become the norm for me to tell people looking for a premier designer bag that the price averages around the $2,000 mark.

A couple weeks ago, Vlad and I were in Texas for SXSW and attended the conference’s panel on Global Digital Trends for the Luxury Consumer. It wasn’t a fashion-specific panel, but during the talk, one of the presenters mentioned a recent Business Insider article about consumer perceptions of Louis Vuitton in China.
I am constantly updating PurseBlog Picks with my favorite items and the latest submissions have been filled with pretty pastels for spring. From light pinks, yellows, blues and more, I’ve added the best items to the PB Picks page that I’m currently coveting and I’m sure you will be too once you see them!
Instagram is a major part of so many of our online lives. Almost everywhere I go, I see people scrolling through their Instagram feeds, and I must admit I’m slightly addicted as well. @PurseBlog has an Instagram account, of course, and we love sharing our love of handbags with you, but recently, I decided to add something that’s super fun to the PB family.
I’m constantly checking new arrivals on my favorite shopping sites and recently noticed a big influx of fringe fashion pieces, handbags and beyond. Fringe is making a big statement for Spring 2015, but something about it feels so familiar. After a bit of checking, I figured out why: almost exactly a year ago, I wrote a very similar piece on the best fringe bags for Spring 2014, and now, here we are, in a sort of handbag déjà vu.
We’ve previously discussed my love for the teeny tiny Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag, and I’m not the only one experiencing micro bag obsession. Vogue.com named the micro bag the It Bag of 2015, and countless stars have been spotted carrying these tiny bags by themselves or as bag charms.
I’m totally obsessed with our new series of texture studies, in which we give you a detailed look at the characteristics and components that make up some of our favorite brands and pieces. We first looked at Chanel Spring 2015 bags, and now we have exclusive photos Vlad shot of the Chanel Haute Couture Collection for Spring-Summer 2015.
