Coach-Limited-Edition-Bags

Revamping a brand is no small or simple task, but Coach‘s Stuart Vevers has one important thing on his side: history. Coach is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, and to celebrate, the brand recently launched two capsule collections: Coach Vintage, exclusively at Barneys, and Coach 1941 x Opening Ceremony, exclusively at…well, I bet you can figure that one out.

Christies-New-York-Designer-Handbag-Live-Auction

Christie’s expanded its Handbags & Accessories division to North America for the first time in 2014, and now the storied auction house is taking its presence in New York one step further. On December 11, Christie’s will hold its inaugural New York live Handbags & Accessories auction at 20 Rockefeller Plaza; as you might have guessed, the handbags on offer will be as exceptional as the occasion.

Kate-Spade-Magnolia-Bakery-Handbag-Collection

Even if you’ve never been to New York City, you’re probably familiar with Magnolia Bakery, as long as you’re a Sex and the City fan. The show launched what was then a neighborhood bakery into pop culture acclaim, and now the bakery has many locations where you can pick up its signature cupcakes and banana pudding.

Ralph-Lauren-RL-Clutch-10

Just like clothing or shoes, we believe in the power of the handbag wardrobe. In some instances, you’ll want to have a big, statement-making satchel on your arm, but other situations call for something smaller and lighter, although no less impactful.

Coach-x-Peanuts-Collection

At first blush, a luxury accessories brand and a beloved children’s comic make strange bedfellows, but that’s part of the reason the first Coach x Peanuts collaboration sold out so quickly; the unexpected combination was light and fun.

Hermes-Minimalist-Sellier-40-Birkin

There are few sacred things in handbag design, but among them is the Hermès Birkin. When Hermès is feeling creative, the brand generally looks to the Kelly to make tweaks and create new versions–we documented nearly a dozen in our guide to Hermès bag styles, and that doesn’t include limited editions.

Heritage-Auctions-Valentin's-Day-Luxury-Accessories-Sale

We’re always in favor of rewarding yourself or someone you love with a fabulous handbag no matter the occasion, and the first-ever Heritage Auctions Valentine’s Day Luxury Handbag & Accessories Auction is your latest opportunity to pick up something rare, exotic or sold out from the world’s best brands.

Heritage Auctions Holiday Handbags and Accessories Auctions

Heritage Auctions pioneered the resale of rare designer bags in the auction world, and that means that the Dallas-based auction house has the experience and client list to source not just hard-to-find bags, but also the kind of VIP-only, limited edition and special order pieces that are only ever offered to extremely dedicated and loyal customers at luxury brands’ boutiques.

Mansur Gavriel x Opening Ceremony Silver Bags

Mansur Gavriel bags are already incredibly hard to get your hands on. The tales of wait lists and eBay hunts for the accessibly priced line are well known in fashion circles at this point, and now the brand has introduced something even more rare and special: four of its most-loved bags in silver saffiano leather, available only at Opening Ceremony.

Christies Handbag and Accessories Auction September 2014

There are few things I enjoy more than poring over the lots in a new auction. When you’re already well-acquainted with what’s available in stores, a well-curated group of rare bags and accessories, culled from the world’s best-stocked closets, is the best way to get the thrill of the new.
