Christian-Dior-Dune-Bag-Small-Graded-Alligator-Front

Back when we first got a glimpse at Christian Dior’s Fall 2015 runway bags, many of you noticed a new flap bag in the hands of a few models. The new design is the Christian Dior Dune Bag, and now that the collection has started trickling into stores, we have the pleasure of formally introducing the Dune.

Altuzarra Bags 5

Joseph Altuzarra has made his ready-to-wear a fashion dream since he started his line in 2008. For Fall/Winter 2015, Altuzarra has launched his first line of handbags, available exclusively at Barneys. His clothing aesthetic has always been geared toward the woman who is strong, powerful and not afraid of a thigh-high slit, and with his introduction of bags, he has translated that feeling to accessories.

Brutus Chanel Bag

If you follow @purseblog on Instagram, you may have already seen the newest addition to the PurseBlog family. Vlad and I adopted Brutus, our three-month-old German Shepherd/Boxer/Golden Retriever (we think) mix, from Jamie’s Rescue in Miami Beach last Sunday.

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.

@pepperpaprikash

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.
