Marc-Jacobs-J-Marc-Embroidered-Python-Shoulder-Bag

Ever since news broke that Marc Jacobs was doing away with his Marc by Marc Jacobs diffusion line and consolidating products under his main label at a variety of price points, we’ve been waiting to see what exactly that would mean in practice, since brands traditionally limit product to a relatively narrow price range.

Longchamp-Le-Pliage-Weekender-Bag

Yesterday, Racked writer Chavie Lieber took a deep dive into the history of a bag most of us have probably had in our closets at one time or another: the Longchamp Le Pliage Tote. If it feels like the simple, functional Le Pliage has been unfalteringly popular with everyone you know for years, you’re right: they’re everywhere, but in a very careful way.

Pink-Hermes-Birkin

“Investment” is a word that gets thrown around a lot when it comes to luxury fashion, but when it comes to actual, annual increases in value, Hermès Birkins are the gold standard. According to a data evaluation recently done by resale platform Baghunter, that might be even truer than bag lovers previously thought.

Today at 11 a.m. Eastern, Mansur Gavriel will update its website with its full product line, and you can snag one if you act quickly.

Hermes-Crocodile-Birkin

Although sales are slowing in the long-booming Asian luxury market, it probably won’t surprise bag lovers to hear that Hermès continues to increase its sales and meet the expectations of industry-watching analysts. It also probably won’t surprise you to hear why; Bloomberg credits the brand’s strength with the Birkin’s perpetual scarcity.

Chanel-Sunglasses-Online-Sale

We’ve known for several months that Chanel has plans to expand its retail presence on its official website, and yesterday, we got the first peek at what the brand has in store. Via Chanel.com, you can now browse and buy a large selection of sunglasses, which is one step closer to the online handbag sales we’re so desperately hoping will one day appear.

Raf-Simons-Leaves-Christian-Dior

If you’ve been as fond of Dior‘s handbags as we’ve been lately, we have some unfortunate news to share this morning. Raf Simons, Dior’s much-lauded creative director of 3.5 years, has decided not to renew his contract with LVMH, the brand’s parent company, according to an announcement made yesterday in Paris.

Bags-for-Younger-Shoppers

If you’ve looked around the your favorite department store in the past couple seasons and felt like everything there, from itty bitty micro bags to toy-like bag charms, was designed for kids, there’s a good reason for it: luxury brands are looking to younger consumers with lower incomes to bolster sales.

Hermes-Crocodile-Jane-Birkin

At the end of July, actress Jane Birkin announced that she wanted the iconic Hermès bag she inspired renamed until the brand improved its treatment of crocodiles. Hermès was quick to address her concerns, and now the brand has announced that she’s withdrawn her request.

Hermes-Apple-Watch

When I think of fashion brands that embrace technology, Hermès isn’t the first name to come to mind, but the company seems to be looking to change that, at least in a small way. Yesterday, Apple announced that Hermès will make three special leather bands for a new series of its Apple Watch that will also have a unique, Hermès-branded interface.

Hermes-Alligator-Medor-Clutch

As we first mentioned last week, Hermès Birkin namesake Jane Birkin is calling for a change in Hermès’ treatment of crocodiles after viewing a disturbing PETA video about the methods used to kill the animals that are made into the bags that bear her name.
