We cover Chanel often on PurseBlog and there are many reasons why, but two of the main ones are that you love the brand and so do we. When we covered the Chanel Fall 2014 show, which took place in a Chanel-made supermarket, you had a lot to say.
For everyone still experiencing the cold weather that this winter has offered, I feel you. Spring has officially landed, but the temperatures have apparently yet to get the memo. Vlad and I are down in Florida for a few weeks to thaw out, and I hope to send the warm weather to my friends still experiencing what feels like a brutally long winter.
I never thought I’d be saying these words, but I’m really loving fringe bags right now. It’s not like me to want an aggressively fringed bag (actually, it’s really not like me), but some of them on the market right now have truly nailed the design.
Christian Louboutin continues to work his way into the handbag market, though the famed designer is still most well-known for his red-soled shoes. Sometimes one of his bags really makes an impression, while others don’t translate the designer’s quirky-sexy footwear aesthetic quite as well.

Paris is the last stop during the long fashion month stretch, and I always think fashion people save their best for last. The streets of Paris are lined with the most fashionable men and women from around the world, looking to take in the shows and show off their goods.
Most people think that when we go to Fashion Week, we’re mainly looking at the clothes going down the runway. In reality, Fashion Week has become just as much about what people outside of the shows wear and carry as what’s going on inside, and I love seeing all the bags on display.
Bag: M2Malletier Fabricca Leather Clutch
Price: $1,290 via Net-A-Porter
Why it’s the Bag of the Week: I’m always looking for new designers, and when I first saw the M2Malletier Clutch I was hooked. A modern take on a classic black leather clutch, this bag features a gold needle top handle that was modeled after medieval armor and took two years to perfect.
