devi kroell large hobo Vlad and I had the pleasure of meeting Devi Kroell, the glamorous designer who is soft spoken and radiates when speaking of her designs. I have always been a fan of Devi’s slouchy hobos, that made her name known, and more recently her box clutches. Many first wore Devi Kroell’s python slouchy hobo, which at the time Devi was one of few designers implementing the use of exotic skins.

As we continue to provide exclusive information to our readers, designer interviews will become more common on Purse Blog. We have previously sat down with Rebecca Minkoff to learn more about her brand and looked forward to following up further this past week. Rebecca Minkoff has created a bag frenzy, amassing a large following who need their Rebecca Minkoff fix. Her colors have become highly sought after, including her Tangerine, Wine, and Basket weave.

jennifer alfanoThanks to my dear friend Sari Brown at Lux Couture, Vlad and I were able to meet another fabulous new designer while in New York City last month, Jennifer Alfano. While Jennifer is newer to the handbag world, she has been in the world of fashion for over twenty years. We went to her office in New York City to meet Jennifer and her consultant Dawn.

katherine kweiWe are thrilled to bring you another exclusive interview with a fabulous handbag designer. Sari Brown from Lux Couture introduced me to Katherine Kwei designs. Sari and I are so intrigued by the delicate knotting technique that makes Katherine Kwei designs stand out. So while in New York City Vlad and I were able to meet Katherine Kwei and her assistant designer, Tiffany Koo (who will be working on a line for Katherine Kwei), and we have not been able to stop raving about her bags since.

Rebecca MinkoffRight after we arrived in NYC last week, Vlad and I checked in the hotel, spruced up, and were on our way to meet Rebecca Minkoff. Meeting the designer behind a handbag line that has a huge following was a little bit nerve-wrecking, yet Rebecca could not have been more down to earth. We got to the showroom before Rebecca made it, and perused her stunning spring/summer handbag line.
