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.

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!“

Diane von Furstenberg has solidified herself as a designer, becoming widely popular for her wrap dresses and clothing line. But DvF continues to excite us with her success in the handbag world. This past Spring the handbag world was a buzz with the unique DvF Stephanie Hobo, which I am still head over heels for.


Rebecca Minkoff will be launching a new collection, perfectly named “I Do”, for a custom wedding line. Prices will vary from $195 through $215.
