Jimmy Choo’s Tamara Mellon teamed up with Richard Phillips to create two Limited Edition art bags for the Spring/Summer 08 handbag line. The first bag, the Jimmy Choo Face Canvas Bag, was not accepted widely by all of you. On the face bag, the four faces are taken from Phillips portrait Riot (1998). For the 70′s style Jimmy Choo Face Clutch, the sensual Richard Phillips Nuclear portrait is showcased on the smooth curves and red background of the bag.

Bottega Veneta Barcelona Cabat
I learned about the ultimate Bottega Veneta Bag, the Cabat, while in Venice, Italy. Between the bag being entirely hand woven inside and out, the four layers, and the small amount of artisans that have the weaving skill to finish this bag, the Cabat is well worth its hefty price tag. For spring/summer season, there is a new rendition of the Cabat, the Bottega Veneta Barcelona Cabat which features Platino Ossidato leather (a brown and bronze combination) on the large frame (17.6 x 7.8 x 12.9 IN).
Exciting news for fans of exclusive bags and cars alike. In a similar move to Lamborghini’s previous collaboration with Versace, Bugatti plans to revive a relationship between Emile Hermes and Ettore Bugatti that was initiated as far back as the 1920s by creating a Limited Edition Veyron. The new super sports car is suspected to have a more over-the-top interior with a lot of delicate stitching and embossed logos.
Get used to hearing her name, because Rebecca Minkoff is now household. We had the pleasure of interviewing the young fabulous handbag designer, and now we are bringing you news of a recent partnership Rebecca has teamed up on. Momoberry by Sanrio has added a new co-branded collection for the Holiday season with their Rebecca Minkoff for Momoberry line. The handbags have already hit the stores, including the Momberry boutique in LA, along with SANRIO shops across the country, and online.
We recently had the pleasure of interviewing the fabulous Rebecca Minkoff and after getting to see more of her handbags in person I can not get enough! I ordered three bags from the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale and while I wait for those to arrive I will continue to lust after her designs until I can ease my addiction. The Rebecca Minkoff Morning After bag has been a huge hit, and many people are yearning for the mini version.
The Stam Bag always appealed my eyes with its chunky hardware and quilted leather, but it was just a bit too much for me. I never really jumped on the Stam bandwagon. Many people did not realize that the ‘regular’ Stam was actually huge. It could really overpower you. So for all the Stam lovers that wanted a Stam with a more compact size, Marc Jacobs introduced the Marc Jacobs Quilted Little Stam Bag also known as “The Kid”.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once said, “The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service”. Behind the impeccably skilled designer, Zac Posen, is a man with a charitable heart for a cause that reaches out to us all. Zac Posen has partnered with DHL to create the Zac Posen + DHL Tote For Teachers and will donate 100% of proceeds benefit Teachers Count.
The hue is perfect, the shape is functional, and the price is superb. The Kooba Aram Metallic Shoulder Bag is yet another Neiman Marcus exclusive, featuring gunmetal metallic lambskin. The chunky shoulder strap and buckled strap on the front add the Kooba touch that we have all found recognizable. The leather is patent, which we all know is a must have for this season, and the color is gunmetal metallic which is almost a must have for the season.
Symbolizing temptation and eroticism, the snake has been a creature of great mystery. Judith Leiber touches on the temptation of the snake, as it was used to tempt Eve and take over her heart. To an outsider, the Judith Leiber Heart & Snake Miniaudiere is simple, but the symbolism runs deep, alluding to sin and evil along with lust and eroticism.
A luscious hue of emerald green is reminiscent of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Pairing this divine color in an sleek sophisticated handbag gives Zac Posen an edge over the rest of his competition for a hit. eLuxury exclusively carries the emerald Zac Posen Antonia Bag, which will lure in handbag enthusiasts and green color lovers worldwide. The green patent leather provides a sleek and sophisticated touch along with the aged gold metal hardware.
