Richard Lambertson, Megs and John TruexLast month we had the unique pleasure to sit down, meet, and interview the two designers behind Lambertson Truex, namely Richard Lambertson and John Truex. The interview felt more like a fun talk with long-lost friends than a meeting over their successful business, history, design and future outlook. Richard and John are as lovable as they come. Very approachable, funny, and not the slightest stint of self-importance that one would almost expect from designers of their caliber.

Vlad and I will have an exciting interview to share with you this week with the designers behind Lambertson Truex, Richard and John. After we visited the Lambertson Truex store, Vlad fell in love with the Florence and while I love this bag dearly, my heart lies with the Sienna. Ranging in a wide variety of bright spring colors, including turquoise, yellow, and purple, the Lambertson Truex Sienna Clutch masters the art of the perfect hand held bag.

Last week, while in NYC, we had the great pleasure of meeting John Truex and Richard Lambertson from Lambertson Truex. We will be posting the interview, along with pictures from the upcoming Fall 08 collection next week. However, I can not pass up sharing Megs’ new loot tonight!

Lambertson Truex bags are known for their clean lines, impeccable quality, and understated elegance. At times these bags fly below the radar, but the Spring 2008 collection jumps out and grabs your attention. From exotic crocodile in metallic gold to orange ostrich, the spring bags for Lambertson Truex have my heart. One of the designs that I am coveting is their fold over Rivington clutch.

Lambertson Truex Bradley Canvas and Leather Tote Lambertson Truex is a designer that hones in on clean lines and elegant products. While canvas is not always easy to keep clean in light colors (like white), it still is a great sturdy material. The Lambertson Truex Bradley Canvas and Leather Tote carries a cute appeal, with a white canvas body and gold metallic leather trim, and an amazingly low price tag.

At first glance, I could not figure out the identity of this short haired beauty. But then the American Beauty princess among other roles revealed her new buzzed head. Honestly, if I could pull of hair like this I would do it in a heart beat. Mena Suvari hit the town looking ultra laid back and fabulous with her Lambertson Truex Nicole Python Bag.

Lambertson Truex Colt Leather Shoulder Bag

Look at the ladies of New York’s Upper East Side, and you will find elegant bags by Lambertson Truex. For an every day work bag, I am loving the Lambertson Truex Colt Leather Shoulder Bag. The shape is exquisite and the soft pebbled leather and silvertone hardware is classy. There is a push lock flap closure, and protective feet.

It has been a while since we have discussed man bags here. I feel a little silly neglecting my man bag duty, especially because that makes me biased and also means I have been neglecting the man, Vlad. Without further ado I must introduce you all to a gorgeous and understated man bag that many of you could most possibly talk your man into wearing.

Lambertson Truex Python Tote

California may have Hollywood, sunshine, Beverly Hills, beaches, shopping, and pretty much every gorgeous guy on the face of the planet, but they can’t have this beautiful tote shipped to them! (Sorry my Cali guys, just giving you a hard time ;-) ). I have always had a soft spot for python bags. And with white being the “it” color this spring, the beautiful Lambertson Truex Python Tote has caught my eye.

Hip Hip Hooray! Viewer’s Choice Monday is back and ready to go!! Unfortunately, many of the bags I was asked to talk about, don’t have much info to go along with them. For starters Wendy asked for the feature of Labertson Truex because “they have some very simple clean styles, unusual these days”. Wendy, you are right- I completely agree. Many of the bags made by LT are simple, sturdy, and sexy.
