bracher emden handbag pictures

Being back in the good ol’ U.S. of A. bears a whole lotta advantages. In fact, there is more than I can possibly compile in a short amount of time, but one of them directly relates to our site. You see, it seems to me like the fashion goodies are more widely available here. I am not sure why that is, but all the Saks, Neimans, etc. make it easier for women to indulge themselves in designer goodies than anywhere in Europe. Don’t get me wrong, I know many all the glamorous accessories originate from overseas, but when it comes to availability, you are mostly limited to the few brand boutiques that are spanned across the continent.

Columbus-local Les Wexner’s very own Limited Brands store Henri Bendel represents NY glamour at its finest – we couldn’t resist to stroll into the store at Columbus’ Easton Mall a few days back. We discovered a whole range of exciting bags that I’ll be sharing with you throughout today. It’s Megs’ birthday (Happy Birthday, baby!) and while her mom took her to Bal Harbour (Miami) just half an hour ago, it’s my responsibility to keep the gears running here at the Purse Blog.

Firstly, I want to share an exciting line of handbags with you. Behind the somewhat odd name Bracher Emden lies a company which has got much publicity in the past two years. All of their uniquely shaped handbags are handmade and hence no bag that leaves the experieced crafter’s hands resembles another. Celebrities like Beyonce Knowles and Eva Longoria have been spotted wearing their creations, and more and more ladies are seen appreciating their fun bags. Above, I’ve included a few pictures of their shoulder bags – the shape is curvy and sexy alike. The two bags we spotted at Henri Bendel’s went for roughly $800, I suggest you check out more of Emden’s clutches and evening bags that you can custom order for your wearing pleasures.

    When I saw these bags a few months ago in Harper’s Bazaar (or similar–I subscribe to them all), I thought the bags looked fantastically made. And they certainly are unique. However, I think I’m the only person who detests the look of those bags. They are the most horrendous things I’ve ever seen.

  • amanda

    Thank you so much, I often wondered what the world’s ugliest bags look like. Now I know.

  • Horse Lover

    I’m not a huge fan, no matter how much of a horse lover I am…

  • lovinthebags

    Hmm. Could be horrendous…could be stupendous! Some of them are tre chic, some tre choke! I like the black & white one. Love the fact that no two are alike (unlike going out into the world and seeing the same bag on everybody’s arm!) I’m going to have to look into these a little more…

  • zoesmom

    Nope, just can’t like those. How ’bout something new that an average Jane can actually afford?

  • Prettyhazy

    It looks like a Boomerang!!

  • Lisa

    So if i throw this bag at my boyfriend for being a jerk, it will come right back?!

  • chemlex

    I’ve actually been admiring these bags for sometime – I think they’re gorgeous. The only color scheme I would be interested in is the blue/white. They also make smaller more rectangle shaped bags – I think those are handsome as well.

  • kaitlyn

    Itlooks like a cowboy boot shaped as a boomerang

  • billyjoe

    I love the blue one!

  • e

    I LOOOOOVVVVVVED Lisa’s comment about throwing the boomerang bag at her boyfriend. I laughed out loud!

  • Prettyhazy

    On second look, it look like a croissant!!

  • chemlex

    Okay y’all just cause a bag has an unconventional shape doesn’t mean you should throw it out of the running for your arm candy of the day.

    If you want to keep buying the same bag over and over again, then good for you and your credit card company. For me, I hate owning accessories that are too similiar – and I would never have that problem with these bags.

  • stripedpenguin

    I must be missing the point of these bags because they sure don’t do it for me.

  • Cassandra

    I love these bags. They are gorgeous…simply marvelous. Too bad I can’t afford one.

  • Zippy

    These bags are too too busy, Zippys’ eyes crossed just looking at them! That said The Zipster does appreciate the hours of hand tooling and other special work which went into creating each one. Will I be seen wearing one? Absolutely not.

  • milena

    I actually own 2 of these bags (both were presents). In the beginning I was indeed very unsure what to think about them. Meanwhile I really love them, specially the little red one made uniquely for me. And all those envy looks & comments from other women speak for themselves…

    • Lizette

      Hello I live in New York and I was wondering if you know where to purchase these bags. I read that you received them as gifts, so if you do not know do you know if I can order them from the internet.

      Thanks Alot
      Lizette

      • sandy

        Hi just read your post. Were you able to purchase this bag? This is a glamorous bag, I purcased one last year and simply love it. I’ve worn it twice and on both occasions and received soooo many positive comments, this bag might look ugly but if you purchase the right colour you will not be dissappointed. The sparkling crystals are amazing.

  • Monique

    Where did you get your two from b/c I really would love to have one?

  • Diva

    I love the bag. I seen this bag on people.com and Beyonce was wearing it and from that I really was feeling it. If anyone know were to find one let me know.

  • JENNY

    I NEED TO KNOW WHERE I CAN GET THIS BAG, PLEASE!

  • cathy

    i have a rectangular black one. It is soooo hot and i luv it. full of compliments!…but they are extremely expensive. Henri Bendels in New York is auctioning off several signature bags the week of October 19 through ebay with donations going to Breast Cancer research. I might get another one-who knows.

  • Angela

    I think the bags are so beautiful and unique. Who wants a bag that everyone else has? I just ordered a lovely pink colored one and can’t wait to get it!

  • someone who knows

    Don’t be dazzeled by the crystals and nice leather! The bags are badly made if you look closely, no bags exactly a like because it’s such a bodge job and they will eventually fall apart.

    • dragondrums

      And you know this how ? These are actually very well made and will last forever. Just because you may not like how they look does not mean they are trash.

  • OsoSexy

    For someone to say that they cant appriciate this handbag you have to have a complex about yourself. This bag is a work of art each style is different because every woman is different. Each day you get dressed to go out that is a work of art your style expresses you as an individual, so if you want to keep carrying the same tired Coach or Dooney that everyone has go ahead but a real woman isn’t afriad to carry a uniqe handbag no matter what people think or the cost. Toodles u boring Noodels……

  • Handbagaholic

    These bags are absolutely georgeous, or as my teenager says “Banging”!!!

  • the girl who knows

    all of you need to go and look at the bag ..it’s a perfect fit ..the most comfortable purse to carry – which is why Henry Bendeljust sponsored the designers for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

  • ashley radford

    these bags are absolutely stunning. i think they are gr8 and im lucky enough to have 4 them. they have class and are the most unique bag you’ll ever see……. as far as i’m concrned they are the best designer bag going…..!!!!!!!!! :0)

  • someone else who knows

    Take it from someone who knows, the bags are a definate bodge job, and get send back all the time because they have broken. The designers cut corners and havent got a clue how to make handbags properly! This company will not be around for long!!!

  • zahra

    OMG i absolutely love these bags. I love being different and standing out from the crowd.I really like the way that the shape is different and the style is different the only thing is that the price is a bit much but with a bit of saving personally I think that they are definately worth it. I LOVE BRECHER EMDEN BAGS.

  • maureen

    David–
    i just love these handbags. They are special and different and make a definate statement. The price is not daunting considering the market for designer handbags. Please advise as to how I can obtain my own special bag.

  • david

  • Trendi Cari

    I love all 3 of my bags, I even have David Bracher’s signature on my recent purchase. My sister loves all 2 of her bags and all the ladies and gentlemen in my town are loving the look of my Bracher & Emden handbags.

    Thank you David

  • Lucy Lu

    I love all the looks I get from carrying my Bracher Emden bag. My handbag was signed as well.

    Thanks

  • wendy

    i think bracher and emden bags are absolutely beautiful the colours are gorgeous i think these bags will be around for many years to come

  • Angela

    I ordered my bag off of bracheremden.com and just received it yesterday. It is absolutely beautiful. The pictures online don’t do them justice. They are so meticulously crafted down to the last jewel. It was well worth the wait and the money. I love unique things and I know no one else will have this bag. I have already received tons of compliments on it and I plan on buying another one.

  • Charese

    Hello:

    I received my Bracher Emden two weeks ago and I love it. I have a turquoise, tan, brown, blue and green version of the one Beyonce has featured on the BE website. This bag beats any LV or Coach currently on the market. Truly a piece of art and designed just for you to enjoy. Thank you BE and best.

  • shar

    i love these bags they are soo nice,
    my favs are the blue one, and the pink one, i would say worth the money

  • ARVELLA

    IM ORDERING A BAG AND NOT ONLY IS THE BAG HOT, BUT THE CUSTOMER SERVICE SEEMS TO BE EXCELLENT TOO (VERY IMPORTANT). I RECEIVE QUICK RESPONSES TO ANY QUESTION I HAVE WITHIN 24HRS OR LESS. THAT’S IMPORTANT. THEY WILL WALK YOU THROUGH THE DESIGN PROCESS WITH PRICES AND DESIGN OPTIONS AND SIZING. I PAID $1100. FOR A GUCCI BORCHIE BAG AND IT’S ONLY “TRIMED” IN LEATHER THIS IS A BETTER BAG-ALL LEATHER (HANDMADE AND CUSTOMIZED).

  • Gazza

    Alas, I love Bracher Emden too. As a handbag designer, I have to say that for sure they are the most original, and totally unique designs around today. Brings a shiver to my spine, and a tear to my eye. Bravo.

  • ARVELLA

    LADIES…I JUST PLACED MY ORDER AND IM WAITING FOR MY BAG. I WILL MOS DEF, UPDATE YOU ON THE BAG WHEN I GET IT. STAY TUNED…..

  • kytheria

    i just bought a bracheremden bag and its very pretty in real, very trendy too. The weird thing is that i found it cheaper in my country than the one online! What i like about bracheremden bags is its not that well spread between gurls, most of them didnt hear about this name but the bag is fabulous, i must be lucky to have one :D
    check its pic http://www.kytheria.net/archives/DSCF2214.jpg

  • Alethea

    Just bought my bracheremden bag last week and have had continuous complements…it’s unique, beautifully crafted and sits comfortably on my shoulder and am definately buying another very soon!

  • Mary

    I fell in love with the Bracher Emden handbags at the beginning of last summer. I live a few blocks away from Bergdorf’s and randomly came across them on the second fl… a must have in my opinion. They are oddly shaped and all of my girlfriends think they are horrific -but the reason I love them is because you do not see them coming and going on the streets of NYC. They are unique and you will not look like a copy cat wearing them. The Chloe Paddington knock-offs are so good on Canal Street these days – you can barely tell the difference, unless you know the bag. I will not find the BE bag on Canal Street and that makes me happy.

  • ARVELLA

    OK LADIES, I JUST GOT MY BAG. LET ME TELL YOU GUYS THIS…IF YOU GET ONE GO FOR THE LARGER ONE. THE BAG IS BEAUTIFUL. I JUST SAT IT ON THE TABLE AND CHECKED IT OUT FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES. THE CRYSTALS ARE VERY BLING, BLING. I LOVE IT. I GOT THE MEDIUM AND WISH I ORDERED THE LARGE. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE TOO BIG FOR ME (5’2″) BUT I WAS WRONG. FOR A BAG THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS, YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH THE LARGE.

  • Lucciee

    i lrvve bracher emden baggs .. there reamm x

  • hadia

    can u sent catalog 2 me

  • lucille

    I am trying to decide whether or not to carry these bags in my store. Do you see them as becoming popular?

  • Jocelyn

    I own one large bag and it is pretty similar to beyonce’s bag. I love it! I get complements all the time! For those girls who owns one, do you guys find it too small on the inside? It seems to me that the padding is a little too thick.

  • peculiar clarke

    Each to their own, but the bags are vulgar…

  • LYNN SCHNEIDER

    DO YOU HAVE ANY MORE PICTURES AND PRICE ON THIS BAG.CAN YOU BUY THEM ONLINE.I HAVE TRIED TO FIND OTHER SITES I CANT, I DONT HINK YOU EVEN HAVE A AUCTION SIE HELP THANKS LYNN

  • LYNN SCHNEIDER

    WHERE CAN I GO TO PURCHASE THESE PURSES AND FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THEM AND ALL YOUR COLOR COMBINATION

  • SHE’LON L.

    PLEASE!!! Someone help me get this bag… Where can you purchase these from and what are the starting prices of the bags. I really like the one that Beyonce has.

    • gilly

      I know that the best of these bags is carried by http://www.mememeaccessories.com the one Beyonce has is called the breast bag, this is because of the way it fits tucked under the arm! Hope this helps

  • SHE’LON L.

    Lucille I see that you said you have the bag similiar to Beyonce’s that’s the one I wanted as well, could you tell me where you purchased yours from?

  • DARNETRA

    I love love love the Bracher Emden bags. They are awesome.

  • Ty

    I purchased my bag on bracheremden.com… the medium style was about $1167 before shipping. They take about 4 weeks to be delivered.

  • Nannette

    HI, I am about to purchase mine but i hope it will be worth it, cuz here in amsterdam they dont know about Bracher Emden

  • ARVELLA

    OK LADIES, I ORDERED A LARGE BREAST BAG AFTER ORDERING THE MEDIUM I WAS HOOKED. I LOVE THIS BAG. THIS HAS BECOME MY FAVORITE BAG. ITS WORTH THE MONEY…TRUST ME. YOU WILL GET LOADS OF COMPLIMENTS AND LOOKS. EVERYONE HAS GUCCI, LV AND COACH. YOU WILL NOT SEE THIS BAG ANYWHERE AND IF YOU DO, IT WON’T BE EXACTLY LIKE YOURS. P.S MAKE SURE YOU ORDER XTRA CYSTALS.

  • AAA

    Arvella, Can you post a picture of it? How much is the large breast bag?

  • AAA

    Select Nordstrom stores also has them.

  • DARNETRA

    I would strongly recommend this bag to any one who can afford it. It is really more beautiful in person that the pictures you see. I have had one for about 6 months now and I get at least 5 to 10 compliments on it everyday that I wear it. I am hoping to get another one very soon. It is definitely a “show stopper”. Men compliment me on the bag as well as women. You’ll love the attention you are sure to get with the Bracher Emden.

  • nathalie

    it’s BEYONE’ S BAG!!!!!!

  • Toni

    Hello Everyone, I’m going to purchase a large bracher emden as a Christmas Gift for my daughter she really love these bags and I think it would be the best suprise can anyone tell me where I can purchase the bag without having to order is I need it in time for christmas and i’m afraid if I don’t get it from a store she won’t have it under the tree.

    Thanks in advance

  • AAA

    Toni, you can get them at Henri Bendel in NY or various Nordstroms. You can also order from Blue Bee online. Good luck, your daughter will love it. You should get one for yourself as well.

  • laura

    ive just recieved the medum breast bag as a surprise xma gift and wow its amazing iv always looked but bever thought i would own one of my own, i keep getting stared at because of the bag. im just hooked and would love a clutch for valentines day

  • ELL

    Electricladyland also carries the bags online. They have stores in Arizona as well if you want to see them in person.

  • Ayesha

    Bracher emden is one of the best designers. Although the price tag on the is expensive it is worth every penny. I own quite a few of there bags, and i can understnd the tru beauty of them. They are so unique and the swarovski touch finishes it off. AMAZING thats all i can say

  • Lizette

    Hi Arella,

    I live in New York and if you do not mind can I ask you the total you paid for the bag and if you are in the U.S how much was the charge for shipping? Because I really want to order this bag from their website this month.
    Thanks for all your information.

    Lizette

    • ARVELLA

      I PAID $65. FOR SHIPPING AND HANDLING. REQUEST A UPS FOR YOUR CARRIER. IF THEY SHIP IT THROUGH TNT, THE COMPANY WILL TRY TO CHARGE YOU A DUTY TAX.

  • Kay

    You can get these bags at Henri Bendel in the City or you can go to Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City Long Island and get them in Nordstrom. Hope this helps……….. :smile:

  • sunita

    i saw them in Selfidges London and just fell in love. Have bought a couple – they are superb

  • kongpop

    If you ladies are interested in buying one of our bags please feel free to contact me kongpop@bracheremden.com I’m looking forward to hear from you.

  • kongpop

    It’s me again but here is the other person that you can contact if you are interested

    Gina : gina@bracheremden.com

    Hope that might helps the one who wants to purchase our bags online.

  • Sunita

    I bought a couple directly from Bracher and Emden, the service although well meaning was a bit bumpy. Waited several days to be called back to order and them, stayed in for a further several days waiting for them to arrive – only to call and find out they had not even been sent yet. When they were sent the address was nearly completely wrong with no postcode. And the gold clutch bought from sale stock lost all its gold foil the first time I used it. It was cheap, but also unsaleable in my opinion. Shame really. I will buy from Selfridges next time to be safe. On the upside the sales lady at Selfridges also told me they rarely lose their gems, only very occasionally the larger swarovski, which is great news for heavily bejeweled items. They really are amazing design, so original – I now have 7 and I just love looking at them on a daily basis. Despite a few minor hiccups will be back for many more.

  • INSULTER HA HA HA

    :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: IT LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING U WOULD PUT ON A DONKEY HA HA HA AND YOU SUNITA SURE YOU HAVE GOT A COUPLE PROBABLY HAVENT GOT THE MONEY TO BUY ONE SINGLE CRYSTAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil:

  • Charlene

    :roll: My friend and I went to a soiree at the Doha Sheraton last month. I, with my ever-stylish Prada, which still gets looks and admirers everytime, and she with her new “Cow Udder” from Brecher Emden she bought back home. She relegated it to her niece the next day and even she refuses to carry it now. This bags are terrific in a terror kind of way. Yuck! Stay away from the passe.

  • Leah

    I have a very first Bracher Emden Bag – it is not shaped like those and it is about 6 years old!

    I love it but I hardly use it and would love to sell it so I can get a bigger bag.

  • Crystal

    I have the larger version shaped like a “Beautiful Butterfly”! Paid $2400 for the bag in Feb. 2007. If anyone is looking for a wonderful deal at $700, please let me know! I have pics available if interested.

    Thank you!

  • RBauer

    I got one of these frome a London Fashion Weekend this sunday….well a new one….lam beather, fully golden with crystals…. which will be seen in the shops soon or before christmas. I am so proud of myself….its supposed to retail at 730 pounds and since I was at the place about an hour before the whole event wound down…got it for 150!!!! :-P YUM!

  • Stephie

    I am a student at London college of fashion, as part of my dissertation i am studying the subject of high street copycat fashion,

    i was wonder if anyone has ever seem copycat versions of these or any bracher emden bags/products on the high street?

    If anyone has seem any if you could please let me know where and when you saw the copycat products, it would really help with my research!

    Thank you! x

  • Susan

    These are on sale at TK MAXX Lakeside at the moment. I picked up 2 covered in Swarovski for £149.99 each ! Much better than £800 +.

  • Sylvia

    I am just waiting delivery of my 5th Bracher Emden bag, these bags are exquisite, I was totally hooked after I bought my first one about 3 years ago, who could fail to appreciate the workmanship that goes into these bags, they are worth every penny.

  • Aly

    I have 2!, Both are beautifully made, and much admired! dress up a “quiet” outfit and you look a million dollars!
    These bags are jewellery.
    My small bag is cream, it fits my mobile phones in, and lippy, and a tissue, and that’s it, but it is an evening bag, and is an accessory, I adore it! Though maybe not too practical for carrying much stuff.
    My black bag is a butter soft leather squashy shoulder bag, fit loads in, and is perfect with a LBD and killer heels.
    – Looks wow!

  • Sandy

    I purchased a Bracher Emden bag last year and have only worn it twice. On both occasions I received numerous compliments and to my surprise one was from a man!!! Ladies if you are considering purchasing a BE bag you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, the detail is amazing, but if you do not like drawing attention to yourself this is not the bag for you. The bling of the swaroski crystals is absolutely beautiful, this bag is a work of art!!! Well done David.

  • Sonia

    I was wondering if anyone know where to buy these online anywhere and if the company still exists? I have only seen Richard Emdens website but not Bracher Emden. Dying for a new one!

    • Martina

      Hello Sonia, I have one handbag Bracher Emden at home. It was gift from my business partner. Its totally new and I would like to sell it because its not my fashionstyle. In case you are interested, please respond to my e-mail. I will send you photos of its. Its serious offer.
      Thank you.

      Martina, Slovakia

      • kimberly
