We’ve long been fans of British designer Matthew Williamson’s highly detailed haute-boho clutches and evening bags, so we couldn’t be happier to hear Vogue UK’s report that Williamson plans to expand into a full-fledged handbag line. That Williamson is ready and rarin’ to go with ten promo shots of the line’s five different designs only makes the whole proposition sweeter.
Introducing Bag Designers(Page 4)
Each season, we become part of the New York Fashion Week scene and have the opportunity to attend shows and pop backstage for some of our favorite designers. We love to share our Fashion Week coverage, and this season we are bringing you an even more intimate look with PurseBlog Video.
I’ve been a longtime Valentino fan, and since the brand hit handbag paydirt with its Rockstud collection, it’s been fun to watch how the accessories continue to evolve. When I first heard the news that the brand would release a camouflage collection, I immediately felt excitement.
It seems so hard to pop into the handbag world out of nowhere and grab hold of enough attention to get things going, but sometimes designers manage to make that happen; at the moment, Belstaff is on a roll. Don’t be confused, Belstaff has been making men’s and women’s bags and shoes since 1924, but in the past few months the revival has been amazing.
Now that the first of the year has come and gone, almost all the Fall 2012 stock has gone on sale and Resort 2013 is firmly ensconced as the in-store season of the moment. You know what that means, right? Time to start the Spring 2013 lookout, especially for new bag shapes and styles from our favorite brands.
I’ve been eyeing the Celine All Soft Shoulder Bag ever since Celine Spring 2013 popped up on the Internet (for Celine newbies, the brand calls its resort collection “spring” and its spring collection “summer”), and now that the line is set to launch in Celine boutiques on Thursday (along with the rest of spring), it seemed only fitting to take a closer look at what makes the bag so appealing.
When the reviews for the Proenza Schouler Resort 2013 collection started rolling in this past summer, I became agitated. Not because of what I saw, but because of what I didn’t – the reviews mentioned a bag known as the Proenza Schouler PS13 that had been shown at the brand’s press previews, but not a single outlet published a picture of it.
