A woman’s handbag isn’t just part of her wardrobe; the right bag is a daily companion and partner in crime, accompanying a woman nearly everywhere and acting as a chic vessel for necessities and indulgences alike.
We mentioned earlier this week that structured, long-strap flap bags are the hottest thing going in handbags right now, and Givenchy may have our favorite of the new crop. The first version of it to hit the Internet was immediately crowned our Bag of the Week, and now several more materials, colors and sizes have arrived.
When designer Emma Hill left Mulberry a couple years ago amid changes made by since-ousted CEO Bruno Guillon, the brand’s fans were not happy; Hill had developed quite a following and had introduced some of Mulberry’s most popular bags, and many of them credited her for the brand’s growing good name.
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.
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.
