There are many ways to get into the holiday spirit. For some people, it might be beginning your holiday shopping, listening to festive music or getting your inaugural gingerbread latte at Starbucks. For Olympia Le-Tan, it’s apparently creating another of signature book-themed clutches. We tend to agree with her, though – what better way to get in the holiday spirit then toting around a holiday classic like this Olympia Le-Tan How The Grinch Stole Christmas Embroidered Clutch to all your holiday parties?

Givenchy handbags can be oddly hard to find on the Internet. For a big, buzzy brand that allows its bag to be sold online, not all that many major web retailers bother to stock them. Bergdorf Goodman will sell you a Givenchy bag over the Internet, but much-larger sister company Neiman Marcus will not. Neither will Saks, and up until late last week, neither would Net-a-Porter.

The influence of the Asian market on luxury fashion gets stronger seemingly every day. Yesterday, news broke that Hermes’ quarterly profits leapt nearly 25% based on the strength of leather goods sales in Asia – no small feat on top of the handbag giant’s already-soaring financials. Today, we’re pleased to announce that Net-a-Porter, one of our favorite online department stores, has launched a new homepage servicing the Asian Pacific market and Chinese-language customers.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, right after I wake up, I immediately refresh Net-A-Porter to see the new arrivals. It has become a personal ritual, and I wouldn’t have it any other way; Net-A-Porter always stocks some of the best accessories and clothing you can find anywhere on the Internet.

We are always sharing our favorite bags and accessories with you guys, but we decided to take it a step further by partnering with Net-A-Porter to create the PurseBlog Net-A-Porter Store, which is a totally shoppable guide to our favorite pieces from one of our favorite online retailers.

The closer we get to spring (actual spring, not fashion spring – fashion spring has been here since September), the more interesting the whole Saint Laurent handbag situation gets. At this point, we all know how Hedi Slimane’s presence at the brand has impacted the uber-popular Cabas ChYc Bag, and now Net-a-Porter’s New Arrivals page gives us some more insight on the other kinds of bags that Slimane has planned for the brand.

When our friends at Net-A-Porter reached out to see if we loved Loewe bags as much as they do, I nearly jumped on my chair, Tom Cruise-style, to yell out “YES!” Loewe is a brand I’ve always loved even though it’s tricky to track down in the US, but that will all change. One of our favorite e-tailers will be carrying the coveted Spanish brand and I’m thrilled.

For fashionistas worldwide there’s one twice-yearly sale for which we all anxiously wait. It’s the Net-A-Porter Semi-Annual Sale, of course, and it’s by far one of the most exciting things that happens in the online retail world. I’ve been anxiously awaiting this sale for both myself and to share with you, simply because there are so many items I have been coveting and now they are marked down.

You know how I know it is Monday? When I wake up and check Net-A-Porter.com, new bags have arrived to their virtual storefront. And the group of new arrivals this week has me especially excited. A lot of Christian Louboutin bags with a sprinkling of Victoria Beckham and Miu Miu bags, the new arrivals let us know that dressing for fall and winter is in full force now.

We love the folks at Net-A-Porter and as their site continues expanding so does their imaginations. We have the first look for you all at their new Bag Guide which focuses on trends for the upcoming season. NAP labels Jewel Colors, Modern Minimalist, Snakes & Leopard, The 70′s, and The New Clutch as the major categories.

Best part is the amazing video is the Rube Goldberg sequence used to create the video.

The bags are coming, the bags are coming! Finally, after the expected summer lull of new product, our favorite shops are filling up with the upcoming seasons’ accessories so quickly I can not keep up.

A few weeks ago, I felt bored and had to scour the web for something interesting to cover, but there will be no need for further scouring as Net-A-Porter has been filling their “What’s New” category each planned day this week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday).
