Tiffany Lambertson Truex

We have been following the news of Lambertson Truex filing for bankruptcy since it was announced early March. And on Friday it was announced that Tiffany & Co. bought bankrupt Lambertson Truex and hired the designers, Richard Lambertson and John Truex. Tiffany plans to expand their leather goods department and feels Lambertson Truex and the design duo will be a good fit.

Lambertson Truex Sample Sale

Lambertson Truex would like to extend an invite to all of you Purse Bloggers! Their Private Sample Sale will begin Monday, April 20th through Tuesday, April 21st. If you are in the NYC area, make sure to check it out to get up to 70% off men’s and women’s bags, shoes, belts, gloves and small leather goods. Vlad and I are huge LT fans, so we are extremely jealous of any and all of you who will be able to attend.

For most of you, winter is in full force. Our friends in Ohio rubbed in our face that they had a snow day at Ohio State yesterday, which is literally unheard of at The Ohio State University. Vlad is flying up to Ohio tomorrow for his bachelor party and will have to embrace the frigid temperatures, but I am perfectly content laying on our roof top deck for the weekend and soaking up the Florida winter weather, which is hovering around 80 degrees and sunny.

One of our favorite designers, Lambertson Truex, has finally opened up an online boutique! We knew this was in the making and patiently waited for them to open their online doors to shoppers. Even though LT bags are sold at Saks online and other retailers, the selection was never quite as large as I would like. And although the selection at their online boutique does not cover all of their bags, it is a substantial number of many of their classics.

We have another treat for you right before the Thanksgiving holiday. Only thing about this treat is that it will not hurt your waistline. We introduced you all to the dynamic duo behind Lambertson Truex last spring. Vlad and I took time to follow up with Richard Lambertson and John Truex earlier this month. The bags they design continue to ignite our handbag loving hearts and Vlad and I left NYC with a bag a piece and a pair of shoes from LT.

I am a huge Lambertson Truex fan. Not only because I love the designers behind the bags, but their bags are absolutely stunning. True story. And now I will begin my bag envy of those who can attend the Lambertson Truex Sample Sale in NYC this week. Their sample sale will be November 18-20, 9am-6:30pm. Make sure to stop by and get great bags at even better prices.

Lambertson Truex bags are a favorite here at Purse Blog. Sometimes it feels like the designs are a hidden gem, a designer that is known but not known as the logofied design house that we all recognize. That is one of the aspects that I most love about what Richard and John have done with their brand.

Richard Lambertson and John Truex have quickly become one of our favorite design teams. Their designs are flawless, meticulous, pay close attention to each detail, and are ultimately wearable. The only downfall they ever fall on is being too safe, too far away from monogramming their bags. I am not asking for a tacky monogram all over, but they should show off a bit more, let us all know that this is theirs!

Lambertson Truex released their Resort collection earlier this month, which has caught many editors attention. Although the bags will not be in stores until October or early November, we had the pleasure of reviewing them now for all of you. Known for their meticulous attention to detail, clean lines, and overall simple yet elegant feel, Lambertson Truex has continued to forge their way in the handbag world.

So this post was supposed to come last week, but this little thing called life happened and poof!, Father’s Day is right around the corner. Luckily my father along with most others still loves and accepts gifts a few days late. I have been meaning to post about the Lambertson Truex man bags. After we met Richard and John, we began to obsess over their bags.
