Let’s not mince words about the handbags that went down the Bottega Veneta runway last week in Milan: I cannot recall ever seeing a runway collection that included so many different kinds of bags, all of them utterly beautiful. I’m not even that enormous of a Bottega fan and I was still awed by the details that went into all of them, from oversized crocodile hobos to the tiniest embellished knot clutches.

I was certain we covered the Derek Lam Nadia before. I checked PurseBlog and PurseBlog Savvy, no go. Instead, I must have been certain we covered it because I kept looking at this bag on ShopBop and other sites and thinking, “I should really write about this bag”. I need to teach myself that internal conversation blog posts are not being seen by our readers.
As much as I love the shape of the Notting Hill Westbourne, it is the rich saturation of colors that has me ga-ga for the brand. To be honest, it is both aspects. The structured shape of the Westbourne is typically not one I am drawn to, yet the feminine and streamlined design is perfectly put together. Why I really love this bag is that it is perfect for dressing up but can still be worn dressed down.
It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of writing about a Nancy Gonzalez handbag, and I think I’ve figured out why: I can never tell when they’re new. I don’t mean to say that they all look alike, but…a lot of them look alike. Although I guess if a design isn’t broken, you don’t fix it.
The Nancy Gonzalez Navy Croc Tote surely isn’t broken.
I love Zagliani handbags. This designer knows how to execute exotic handbags perfectly. Each exotic that I’ve seen is gorgeous, well thought-out and completely drool-worthy. The Zagliani Multicolored Puffy Python Bag is no exception.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen this shape and design. I covered the Zagliani Medium Python Puffy Bag a while back. Just as I thought that bag was gorgeous, so is this one.
Great googly moogly, people. I sit here every day and talk about $2500 handbags like they’re the most normal thing in the world, so most sane people would consider me somewhat desensitized to luxury prices. And they’d probably be right – I sort of consider Balenciaga bags to be a steal, since most of their motorcycle styles are still priced under $1500.
Welcome back Anya Hindmarch, it has been a while since we have talked about you. The best way to strike up the conversation again is with a great handbag, and you have delivered.
Anya Hindmarch has always brought us beautiful bags, problem is there are not large amounts of them. When I saw this clutch I had to write about it.
Notting Hill Design is the latest brand we want to formally introduce you to. We already had Amanda gush about their Westbourne after she spotted it being carried by Leighton Meester on Gossip Girl. Then we were teased even more when Blake Lively stepped out with the same design in the most delicious shade of orange. Now it is time we introduce you all officially.
One word for you: GORGEOUS. VBH handbags and clutches have captured my attention since day one and I’ve never looked back. I can’t remember the last time I came across a VBH handbag where I was disappointed. Can you? I didn’t think so. I was perusing Browns today and almost fell off my chair when I saw the VBH Python Clutch with Crystal Detail.
