Miu Miu Matelasse Satchels

The start of the 2012 London Olympic Games is only days away, and for this year’s games, more designer brands than ever are pitching their hats into the ring to wish the athletes well and get a few of those sweet Olympic revenue dollars.

For a handbag collector, having a one-of-a-kind bag from your favorite brand is something you always hope to be able to do. Getting the opportunity, though, can be costly. Most major firms will make certain bespoke items for their VIP clients, but attaining that status requires a long history of major purchases before the privilege of buying such a bag is even granted, not to mention that the bags themselves usually cost well above the brand’s other pieces because of the costly process of producing a one-off design.

Well, this is strange. Or at least I think it is; you guys can be the final judge. To celebrate the global Fashion Weeks (which kick off today – everyone say a little prayer for me and my sanity) this season, Miu Miu is launching a grand total of 46 one-of-a-kind bags starting with 16 at the brand’s Prince Street boutique in New York.

I would love to bring more Loewe designs to our readers, but the brand remains hard to gather information from online. Never fear, PurseBlog always finds a way and today I am presenting the perfect spring collection. Meant to coincide with the Cherry Blossom blooms, Loewe introduces their limited-edition Cherry Blossom Collection which symbolizes the arrival of spring, good luck, and eternal love.

It’s not every day that I wake up and find photos of bags like the Lulu Guinness Fan Clutches waiting to greet me in my inbox, but every now and then, I get lucky and beautiful bags just appear. Yesterday was one of those days, and to make the whole thing even better, these clutches are here for a good cause.

Can you believe that it’s already been 10 years since Balenciaga started making their iconic motorcycle bags? It seems like it was just yesterday, but these bags have been a fashion must-have for a full decade.

To celebrate the design’s anniversary, Balenciaga and Neiman Marcus have teamed up to carry a limited edition collection of six exclusive motorcycle bags.

We have been lamenting over attempting to find the perfect beach bag. Do you spend $50 or $500, do you get a designer bag or kick-around-bag? It comes down to personal preference and what kind of use the handbag in question will get.

Everyone can go into a store and buy a handbag off of the shelf. Many of those bags we buy are very meaningful to us for different reasons. I now have a handbag in my collection that is so meaningful, so special, and so rare, it has a slight golden glow coming from behind it whenever I look at it.

The Mulberry Alexa has taken the handbag loving fashion world by storm. The shape of this bag, similar to the PS1, is the new cool. Laid-back, school-bag look is all the rage and we are loving it. You know why?

Well, we have seen it all. I have never quite understood the allure of a design house venturing into the foray of athletic equipment or other random accessories, but at least it gives us a talking point. We have seen a $17,000 Chanel Bicycle and a Chanel Segway and now we have Chanel temporary tattoos.
