Louis-Vuitton-Nano-Bags-July-2015

Micro bags are one of the most polarizing trends to home along in years, and I’ve got some unfortunate news for those who wish they’d go away (We read the comments! We hear your size frustrations!): Louis Vuitton has stepped into the ring with seven brand new versions of some of its favorite bags, shrink-rayed to tiny proportions.

PurseForum Instagram

Social media has taken over our lives; everyone is connected at all times on multiple platforms. I am still an Instagram girl at heart, though–I love updating our accounts @purseblog and @pursesandpaws. Our community on PurseForum has grown drastically over the last 10 years, and while everyone is sharing their latest and greatest purchases on tPF, they are also sharing on social media.

Elena Ghisellini Bag 1

To kick off the 4th of July weekend we’re sharing a trio of bags from Italian designer Elena Ghisellini. Before she began her own line, Ghisellini was the accessories designer for Givenchy and was in charge of the creation of the widely popular Nightingale and Pandora bags.

A.L.C. Handbags Fall 2015 10

Last year we introduced you to A.L.C. Handbags, and since its inception, the brand’s handbag line has continued to find its way. Celebrities have been spotted carrying A.L.C. bags, including Miranda Kerr. (Who, incidentally, has one of the best handbag collections we’ve ever seen.)

Ghurka ROVER No 66 Mink Suede

We recently had a member of the PurseBlog team visit Ghurka to check out the brand’s bags, and while it’s still a brand I don’t know well, I realized we haven’t covered them since the early PurseBlog days. Ghurka is not a newcomer, but it deserves a reintroduction to PurseBlog.

Like many of you, I am Instagram obsessed. Once I launched the PurseBlog Instagram account a few years ago, I was hooked and it started to become a huge part of my day. While Vlad and I don’t have our own pet yet (we are planning to get a puppy sometime soonish!), I am still entirely enthralled with other people’s pets – like @pepperpaprikash above!

Louis-Vuitton-Volta-Bag-Michelle-Williams

Yesterday, we brought you news of some new Monogram Canvas prints that Louis Vuitton is trying out for summer, and now we have some news on the leather front. On Twitter yesterday, the brand unveiled its newest leather design, the Louis Vuitton Volta Bag, alongside its new ad campaign with returning star Michelle Williams.

Delvaux bags

We cover so many bags and so many brands on PurseBlog, but we’ve haven’t delved deeply into Delvaux, and that’s a disservice to bag lovers. Delvaux is the oldest fine luxury leather goods house in the world, established in 1829 in Brussels, Belgium.

Valentino-Jacquard-Logo-Bags

If you’re not on board for the looming resurgence of logo bags, sit this one out. For spring, Valentino has launched Viva Valentino, a collection of the brand’s super-popular Rockstud bags with panels of tonal jacquard textile that feature a diamond-V pattern.

Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Monogram Infrarouge

Monogram bags may wax and wane with customers, but they’ll always be a huge part of many brands’ sales. Monograms easily identify brands to onlookers, and many customers first find their way to love designers by recognizing the monogram; it’s an easy association.
