Take a peek at the introduction to our new category, reasons why we love bags!
Introducing Bag Designers(Page 5)
Welcome accessories newcomer R&Em, a line that will be exclusively carried at Macy’s department stores and Macys.com starting February 23rd.
Barneys NY has partnered with acclaimed designer Helmut Lang to launch his first ever handbag, the much anticipated Loki Bag.
And this is where Thursday Friday comes in. The company was launched with the idea of bringing fashion to canvas bags. Their Together Bag is available in either a red, camel, or blue print of a Hermes Birkin on the canvas tote.
Welcome Vintage Reign Handbags, a line created by cousins Stacy Studnik and Cory Papunen.
As I said, Juicy Couture is working their way into the contemporary handbag market quite nicely. Their bags remain fun and playful while having a more mature finish. The Holiday collection infuses large bows, ombre sequins, fake fur, and chiffon ruffles. My favorite (and many other bloggers agreed at the soiree) were the oversized bow bags. There were long shoulder straps paired with super-sized bows.
Be&D Creative Director, Steve Dumain, is launching a new handbag brand called Roccatella tonight on QVC (7 PM EST).
If the name Reed Krakoff is familiar to you, there’s a very good reason why: as president of Coach Inc., Krakoff is often credited with turning the company around making it into the handbag behemoth that we know today. Whether you’re a fan of that brand or not, it’s hard not to admit that Krakoff has shown a keen understanding of the types of handbags American women want to buy.
Tiffany & Co. may be synonymous with jewelry but that soon will change once you get to see their new leather collection. When I first learned that Lambertson Truex filed for bankruptcy, it was not only a shock but also left me feeling like a significant part of the handbag world vanished. My hope was restored soon after when I read that Tiffany acquired Lambertson Truex.
After five years of running PurseBlog, it is rare that I run into a brand new designer that I feel absolutely amazed, excited, and captivated by. That is precisely what I feel when I look at Peter Nitz Zurich designs. His designs captured my attention from the very first glance and have yet to let me go. Peter’s dream was to own an atelier where he would shape and stitch the finest available skins entirely by hand and accent them with beautiful jewelry to create unique and precious handbags.
