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.
I found the Miu Miu store that I not only want to visit but also feel like I would live a perfectly happy life if I could move into it. Miu Miu opened up their Forte dei Marmi Store which is in a sea town that is part of northern Tuscany. Famous residents of the town include Andrea Bocelli and Giorgio Armani along with Paola Ruffo di Calabria, Queen of the Belgians who was born there.
Our new addition to our growing family of websites, www.TalkShoes.com, has been up and running for a little over a week now. Since we introduced it to you, TalkShoes is steadily growing each day with more content and more visitors.
One of the categories we find the readers loving is Whose Shoes. Each post has a photo of a celebrity’s shoes and you have to guess who it is wearing them.
We all know that many who love designer handbags also love designer shoes. With our growing community of shoe lovers on PurseForum, we decided to add a website dedicated to designer shoes.
Welcome our newest website, www.TalkShoes.com to the family. Make sure to go check it out to find out how to win a $500 gift card to the online store of your choice.
When we first met Jason Salstein (formerly of Hunting Season), we immediately sensed his ambition and readiness to stand out above the rest of the pack. A few days ago, Jason reached out to introduce his latest venture, namely his new line “Our Lord & Saviour“. This was just too good to pass up.
My recent blog debate stirred up quite the discussion. The photo that I posted from Style.com was said to be of an editor of Nylon Magazine and also, despite our assumptions, not a counterfeit Birkin. In fact, it was pointed out to be a design by a company named Leah and Bliss.
So I did a little research and reached out to the contact info on their website.
With Twitter taking off, it is only plausible that some new social media offshoots will pop up. We have seen some that we are not blown away by, but recently I was introduced to TweetMyBag, which is right up my alley. TweetMyBag was launched in collaboration with Rebecca Minkoff this month. Through February 14th, you can upload a photo of your handbag and receive 25% off on Rebecca Minkoff bags as well as be entered into a RM bag giveaway.
