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.

After thousands of you voted in Phase I of our PurseBlog and Botkier Exclusive, it is time we move on to Phase II. The shape/color/hardware options voted on the most from the first round were the popular Sasha Duffle (as seen on Angelina Jolie and other celebs), Distressed Grey, and Gunmetal hardware.

Notting Hill Lexi Clutch

One of our goals for 2010 is to bring you more news from designers you may not know much about. Recently we brought you information on Notting Hill Design, a brand whose bags have been spotted on Gossip Girl and whose designs exude an uptown sophistication.

PurseBlog and Botkier

We have been working on this collaboration for months are are happy to finally be bringing you news of it. PurseBlog is teaming up with Botkier to design an exclusive PurseBlog and Botkier handbag. This handbag will be created by all of you, having choices for the silhouette, leather, and hardware.

Danny Roberts Harajuku Lovers Bags

There is no better way to start off the new year than to bring you an exclusive interview and information on a fantastic collaboration. We are talking about the well-known artist Danny Roberts and his partnership with Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lovers.

On the twelfth day of Bottega Veneta we have our best photos and bags yet, a duo of Croc bags, the finest we have ever met!

How can I begin to describe our final day of Bottega Veneta without typing in all caps followed by an absurd number of exclamation points?

We followed up with our Rebecca Minkoff Spring Preview with a short interview with Rebecca Minkoff. We asked some forum members what questions they had for Rebecca Minkoff and here she answers.

Find out what is next for the brand, how the economy has affected her business, and when the next sample sales are!

One of the most amazing aspects of my job is the opportunity to look at handbags in showrooms. It is triple the delight when the bags we are looking at are months away from being available to the general public. If you asked me five years ago what I would be doing today, this would not be on my list.

For our last business trip to New York City, we knew it was time to step up our game. For the purpose of showcasing wonderful new bag candy, images did the job, but video was definitely better. Without further ado, we’re proud to present our first official Purse Blog Video coverage.

Bluefly

A few months back, we’ve partnered with our friends at Bluefly to put together a fabulous Purse Blog Store in their handbag section. We had the chance to pick some of our favorite bags, at any price point and put them all together in one fabulous store!
