I got an email last week of a PurseBlog reader looking for a sneak peek at an upcoming Louis Vuitton bag. Lea asked and we can deliver! Welcome the Louis Vuitton Damier Rivington which is said to be available starting August 1st.

The Proenza Schouler PS1 bag has made a strong name for itself. With a large following, the design continues to entice fashionistas worldwide. When you have a design that does not need to be edited, the only way to spruce it up is by changing the colors and materials.

Now that Saks officially has announced their participation, we can break the silence and share the extremely exciting news that we’ve had to keep secret for a few weeks.

The Botkier + PurseBlog Limited Edition Handbag, which was democratically created by our readers in a two phase process, will be exclusively carried and sold both at the Saks 5th Avenue flagship in New York City and Saks.com, starting in July!

It has been a little while since we have updated you on the Botkier + PurseBlog Exclusive Sasha Bag. Finally we can preview this exciting collaboration, it was all of you who contributed after all. The exclusive bag is just about ready to be sold and we got to see a first prototype.

Yesterday, Yves Saint Laurent relaunched YSL.com with a fresh assortment of iconic YSL products that are exclusive to their online store. Many of the products are never-before-seen in boutiques, but we have the inside scoop on some of the items hitting the site.

Everyone can go into a store and buy a handbag off of the shelf. Many of those bags we buy are very meaningful to us for different reasons. I now have a handbag in my collection that is so meaningful, so special, and so rare, it has a slight golden glow coming from behind it whenever I look at it.

When we first met Jason Salstein (formerly of Hunting Season), we immediately sensed his ambition and readiness to stand out above the rest of the pack. A few days ago, Jason reached out to introduce his latest venture, namely his new line “Our Lord & Saviour“.

Congrats to Kelly and Joanna Smith!! You are our Tory Burch winners

We brought you news of the Tory Burch and Leanna Shapton Valentine’s Day Collaboration. And after sharing the items with you, we thought it would only be fitting to feature an exclusive interview with famed fashion designer Tory Burch.

When two masters of their domain come together to collaborate, no chin is safe from slobbering, wet drool. In this case, the German manufacturer Leica Camera AG and the Parisian high-fashion house Hermes joined forces to create a very special limited edition camera, namely the new Leica M7 Edition Hermes.

Spring is around the corner and we have a sneak peak at the Botkier Spring 2010 collection! In October we sat down with Monica to see what was in store for us from Botkier. On top of that, we were finalizing our amazing PurseBlog + Botkier Limited Edition Handbag.
