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! We have five options to choose from, and we took every single one of your votes into account to create what we think will be the ideal Rebecca Minkoff bag for her PurseForum Minkettes fanbase.
Time is running out to put your vote in before we move to the next and final stage! Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity and give us your vote!
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?
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!
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 that you can attend from the comfort of your home computer.

Price is marked down from
