Last week, we had quite a discussion over the lack of great American luxury handbag designers right now. I’ve heard many of you say you want to see more diversity in the brands we feature, so I’ve been spending time looking for bags and brands that I love that are a bit different from our usual suspects.
Price increases for the big brands all seem to be hitting around the same time this year, and that is not good for anyone in the market for a new bag.

Over the weekend, there was quite the rainstorm as I headed out for a pedicure.

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.
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.
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.
