Vlad and I sat down with Richard Lambertson and John Truex again this month to see what has been going on with Lambertson Truex since our last interview in May. Richard joined us for the last part of the interview, as he was out of the office for the beginning. New at Lambertson Truex is their Spring 2009 line, which is showcased around their open and airy showroom in NYC. The exotic skins remain big and splashes of divine color are seen on crocodile skins.

The bags will speak for themselves and the duo behind the brand will show you once again that they are as unpretentious as they come. Lambertson Truex has become a Purse Blog favorite. The signature LT closure gives the perfect touch of the brand to each bag, and the inside lining and set up shows a true understanding of what a handbag is supposed to accomplish. The exotic skins and refined style of Lambertson and Truex exudes in their pieces, luring in shoppers who are confident with a bag that compliments rather than steals the show.

Vlad and I spent time in the showroom trying on different bags (I am the bag model in these pictures) and giving ourselves time to see the bags up close and personal. The travel gear is a must from the brand, which comes as no surprise after their team up with Samsonite. And in my dream world, I will be driving in an old-timer to our summer beach house with a large crocodile bag thrown in the back seat. While I did not leave with a crocodile weekend-getaway bag, Vlad and I did pop into the Lambertson Truex store on Madison Avenue to buy some goodies! We will post pictures later of our new LT purchases. And if you want anything from LT make sure to call the Madison Avenue store and ask for Carmine, he is awesome (212-750-4895).

    The best Lambertson Truex bag is the “Kansas”. I wish they would make this bag with a pebbled leather that does not scratch as easily as the box leather
