Chanel Boy Wallet on Chain Bag

Well, PurseForum Roundup readers, we have passed the mid-September mark and we’re definitely seeing some signs of autumn, both on the PurseForum and out in the wild. This week, we spent some quality time in Handbags and Purses, the Jewelry Box, Chanel and more.

Gucci-Diamante-03

There’s been a big move at PurseBlog that I’m happy to share with you all: After four years full time in New York City, Vlad and I have decided to head back to Florida. South Florida is where we lived before our move to NYC and where I spent most of my years growing up.

Kerry Washington Prada Face Mural Shoulder Bag

Here’s Kerry Washington, attending a private party in LA with a Prada Face Mural Shoulder Bag, which was one of the most eye-catching pieces from the brand’s Spring 2014 collection. The line has long since sold out, but it was so popular that Prada is doing some more girl clutches and things for the upcoming season, like this close-up version: the Napa Zip Girl Clutch, which is currently available at Bergdorf Goodman for $1,195.

Happy 4th of July

Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag

If you’ve been trying to get your hands on a Mansur Gavriel bag, we’ve got a small spot of hope for you: the brand just launched e-commerce on its own site, with a full array of in-stock bags available for immediate purchase.

Megs Christies Sale

Christie’s is a name that stands on its own as the world’s premier luxury auction house. From the black dress Audrey Hepburn wore on Breakfast at Tiffany’s to a $106 million Picasso, Christie’s is known for some of the most notable auction sales ever.

The LXR & Co Shopping Experience (1)

When we met Kei Izawa from LXR & Co. in her Soho store at the end of April, I also took a tour of the store and walked through what the shopping experience is like. With so many online resale sites popping up seemingly everywhere, it’s hard to find one that also has a brick and mortar (two in this case: one in LA, one in NYC) location where you can visit the items you’re eyeing in person.

Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2014 Bags

Proenza Schouler’s Pre-Fall 2014 handbags have arrived in stock on the brand’s site, and the collection is as notable for what is doesn’t include (PS13s, apparently) as what it does (the return of the baja textiles).

Saint Laurent Coated Canvas Holdall Bag

Louis Vuitton has relatively few serious competitors in the logo-splashed, coated-canvas weekend bag category, but by the looks of the Saint Laurent Coated Canvass Holdall Bag, Slimane & Co. might be looking to take a chunk out of the logo giant’s business.
