Exclusive

When our friends at Net-A-Porter reached out to see if we loved Loewe bags as much as they do, I nearly jumped on my chair, Tom Cruise-style, to yell out “YES!” Loewe is a brand …

While some stores are offering discounts today for Cyber Monday, others are revamping their look and releasing new products online. Our friends at Salvatore Ferragamo took the kickoff of holiday shopping season to completely redesign …

I don’t know if you’ve tried to buy a Chanel bag recently, but it can be downright difficult to find even something as basic as a black Chanel Classic Flap. Demand for the brand’s bags seems to be nearly endless, and seasonal styles and collection staples alike are here today, gone tomorrow. Not to mention the prices, which are perpetually rising. Don’t even get me started.

If you’re a Chanel lover and a RueLaLa member (or if you’d like to become one – we have a link for that), you’re in luck. In exactly three hours, at 11 a.m. EST, Madison Avenue Couture’s pre-owned and vintage Chanel wares will be available for purchase. In addition to a healthy selection of classic Chanel bags in neutrals and vibrant colors alike, RueLaLa and Madison Avenue Couture also have clothing and accessories from the French luxury giant for your perusal. We have your exclusive first look at some of our favorite bags from the sale after the jump, or you can sign up for RueLaLa and shop the sale starting at 11 a.m. (more…)

This is one of those exclusives that I both curse and welcome at the same time: We have the first look at the Hermes bags that will be available on Moda Operandi later tonight! The …

Fashion’s most coveted site, Moda Operandi, will launch an exclusive trunk show tomorrow of the limited edition Roger Vivier Fall 2011 Couture Collection, dubbed Rendez-Vous. The first place you can see what will be offered is right here, thanks to our friends at Moda Operandi. The trunk show is made up of a small but entirely gorgeous collection of five shoe designs and seven bags. If you see anything you like, keep in mind that the collection has been produced in limited quantities and tomorrow will be the first time it is available for purchase online.

I’m going gaga for this collection, finding the pieces both demure and totally alluring. I would love both shoes shown here and the chain clutch would easily be the perfect addition to an evening outfit.

This is my favorite phase of our exclusive bag design collaboration with Rebecca Minkoff thus far, because in Phase III we get to see the brand new bag designs Rebecca and her team have developed! …

Phase I of of PurseForum + Rebecca Minkoff Exclusive Bag Design Collaboration took the PurseForum readers and voters by storm. The overwhelming number of votes went to the coveted Satchel, which we all know Rebecca Minkoff designs amazingly. Phase II is well underway and this is the phase I have been most excited about.

Have you ever wanted to tell a designer EXACTLY what you want to see in a handbag? How you prefer adjustable straps or tech-friendly pockets or a zipper top? Now is your chance, and I am not sure anyone has been able to say this before. With the help of every reader, customer, and Rebecca Minkoff fan girl, the final bag design will take into account your direct feedback.

Time is running out for an unprecedented opportunity, one in which you can speak to a designer and tell her what you want to see. With your votes and direct input, the finished product may be exactly what you are looking for. How amazing is that?

Take part in Phase II of our exclusive collaboration now!

You have no idea how excited I have been while sitting down with the Rebecca Minkoff team to come up with an opportunity that has never been seen before in the handbag world! We knew we wanted to collaborate on a bag design, but it was super important for us to include Rebecca’s very first fan base, the PurseForum Minkettes, in the process. We took it a step further from simply allowing the fans to be part of designing an existing bag, because the finished product will be a brand new shape and style. And since we are taking it back to the original fan base, we are also taking production back to a domestic factory. That means this bag will be made in the USA!!

There will be many phases of voting and you do not want to miss any of them. Your vote is going to help create a bag that will walk the Rebecca Minkoff runway show in February. What are you waiting for?! Vote in Phase I now!

Vote now to be a part of this unprecedented opportunity!!

Shop Proenza Schouler via Net-A-Porter

Today Vlad and I traveled down to South Florida for a much-needed vacation. We plan to spend this time flopping from the pool to the beach with drinks in our hands, but I couldn’t go to bed without sharing a sneak peek I received in my email today. Our friends at Net-A-Porter know how much we love Proenza Schouler bags and decided to give our readers an exclusive look at two new PS1 bags hitting their virtual store today.

From a gorgeous wine hued suede to a luxurious brushed python, I find myself yearning for each of these bags. (more…)

Shop the Coach Classic Collection at NET-A-PORTER.com

As the Coach brand expands rapidly, offering everything from the youthful Poppy line to the more refined Kristen collection, many fans of the brand still yearn for the Coach Classics. To many, a “classic Coach bag” might mean the small signature Demi Pouch, but the brand became known for their simple and refined leather Heritage collection in the 1970s, long before its logo fabric became a signature touch.

With the current 70s trend in full swing, NET-A-PORTER Buying Director Holli Rogers felt it was the perfect moment to bring back some of the original Coach designs and introduce them to a new generation of women. The five bags of the Coach Classics Collection will be exclusively carried at NET-A-PORTER.com and are sure to sell out quickly. Click for more on the Coach Classic Collection!

Right now the Rebecca Minkoff website is hosting a major sale of some of its most coveted bags. If you were not able to attend a sample sale, think of this as a virtual one …

Note: We have extended this through April 25, 2011!
