Gerard Darel 24 Hours Bag, $399 via Bloomingdales.

So far, the only thing we don’t like about Gerard Darel is that it can be very difficult to find in the United States. The reasonably priced French line with an ardent cult following counts stars like Eva Longoria and Halle Berry among its stable of dedicated fans, but looking to buy the company’s bags online when you live in the US can be an exercise in futility.

Since the handbag fame of the Mulberry Alexa, there have been a few other bags that have made a name for the brand but none of them have ever come close to the Alexa craze. I am sure Mulberry aims to change that with their new Taylor collection.

For being such an enormous, world-renowned brand, Ralph Lauren Collection handbags can be mighty hard to come by. Even though I often see full-page ads for the Ralph Lauren Ricky Bag in glossy magazines, the only place I’ve ever seen one actually for sale was in a Ralph Lauren boutique, which seemed like an oddly narrow retail scheme for a bag that could potentially garner lots of sales at department stores and high-end online retailers if customers were able to become more familiar with the brand’s accessories.

I would love to bring more Loewe designs to our readers, but the brand remains hard to gather information from online.
