There was a lot of debate when I named the Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour as the bag of the week back in March.
In handbags, just like in soccer, there are certain superpowers who rarely face defeat. Just like Germany has steamrolled its way into Sunday’s final of the actual World Cup (our sincere condolences to Brazil), the Chanel Boy Bag, whose allegiance we had attributed to Germany because of Karl Lagerfeld’s birthplace, has risen to the top of the 2014 PurseBlog Handbag World Cup.
The US may have been eliminated from both our PurseBlog Handbag World Cup and the real one, but still we press on, undeterred. After all, a champion must be named. Today, you’ve shrunk our field to four remaining contestants, and now only you can choose which two will duke it out in the championship round.
Although the weather is a little damp and gloomy in NYC today, there’s one surefire thing that always manages to brighten up our Fridays: a fresh round of bag deals from our favorite shopping spots around the Internet. This week, we have some picks from deal-roundup favorites like Kate Spade and Rebecca Minkoff, mixed with a few harder-to-find pieces from the likes of Alexander McQueen and Oscar de la Renta.
Over the past couple of years, colorblocked neutrals have become a season-change staple. Because black, tan and grey leather, along with neutral exotics, don’t require a certain temperature or sunlight level in order to look appropriate, it only makes sense that they’re used to make pieces that consumers love, especially during the times of year when it might be 40 degrees one day and 70 the next.
