It’s safe to say that, at one point or another, almost all of us have found ourselves lusting over something we saw on Instagram and spent endless hours on shopping sites trying to find the exact match, only to come up empty-handed.
Introducing Bag Designers(Page 3)
J. Mendel is already a name that many fashion lovers know, but when you think J. Mendel, you probably think of the brand’s stunning gowns and impeccable furs.
I’ve been a longtime lover of J. Mendel, and when I heard that Giles Mendel decided a focus on bags to be integral to his brand’s future, I was thrilled.
Finding a new designer is always exciting, especially when you consider the tight hold some big brands have on the handbag market. Earlier this month, I was introduced to Dillon Des Pres. When I saw his line, I felt a freshness that I always yearn for; the designs are simple and natural, with a beautifully finished aesthetic.
When it came time to design Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad Bag, my idea was to make a bag that is ideal for the lady on the move, which I constantly am. When I’m home in NYC, I change my bags out often, but Vlad and I travel a ton and I’m not someone who takes along a bunch of bags when I’m on the road; they’re cumbersome to pack, they could get lost, there’s just too much hassle.
I’ve been super excited to share the bag I designed with Mackage, and the time is finally here! We’re pleased to introduce the Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad Bag, which I helped design with the hectic lives of modern women in mind.
I just love it when a European retailer comes stateside. Not only does it make shopping more convenient for me and my fellow Americans, but it brings a more diverse point of view into the marketplace – European luxury retail buys tend to include quirkier, riskier items than those from US companies, so the selections often offer a little bit of attitude that’s harder to put your hands on in American department stores.
