Last 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.

Lambertson Truex Sienna Clutch

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.

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.

Lambertson Truex Metallic Rivington Clutch

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ;-) ).

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”.
