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. We selected five shows to feature, but while you wait for those videos, take a look at our trailer of what’s to come! We hope you enjoy it.

Valentino Camo Event

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.

Belstaff Wimbourne Clutch

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.

BCBG Max Azria Bags-2

BCBG Max Azria is a name we all know, but I’m not sure I’ve ever really looked to the brand for its accessories. That’s all going to change now, though, because after playing with some BCBG bags last week, I’m hooked.

Givenchy Lucrezia Satchel Big

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?

Belstaff Tread Weymouth Shoulder Bag

I don’t envy the position that new handbag lines find themselves in. The accessories market is super competitive, in part because it’s super profitable and a great way to reach a wide range of consumers, but that also means that how a new line is positioned at its launch is critically important.

Sophie Hulme Bags

Not only do I love finding new handbag designers to share with you all, but also I found a designer whose bags are so lovely I am certain many of you will add them to your wishlist.

Diane von Furstenberg Limited Edition Box Clutches

All these years later, my all-time favorite DvF bag is still the Stephanie. I own two of these bags, they’re my go-to when it comes to traveling. I love that for this bag, the shape is crescent-like, which means it’s so roomy that it fits everything I need.

Narciso Rodriguez Medium Bowler Tote

Narciso Rodriguez is a man whose clothes are known for their modern angles and respect for the natural contours of the body, so it only makes sense that his first handbags should have that same sensibility.

Opening Ceremony Handbags

The perennial cool kids of Opening Ceremony have taken one more step into the accessories realm: just this week, they’ve launched their first in-house bag line, which feels like a long time coming. As you might expect, the bags ring up at a contemporary price point and they look like exactly the sort of thing that Opening Ceremony’s hipper-than-thou clientele wants to carry when their It Bags start to feel overexposed.
