Louis-Vuitton-Fall-2015-Handbags-27

Louis Vuitton has changed a lot over the past couple of years, and by the numbers, the shifts in strategy are starting to look like they’re working. According to research firm Millward Brown, Vuitton held onto its spot as the world’s most valuable luxury brand in 2014, and it was one of only two that gained value.

Hermes-Bags-Stolen

If the Hermès resale market seems suddenly more flush in the near future, there might be a very good reason why: At the end of last week, a band of thieves filched 500 Hermès bags from a packaging and logistics facility outside Paris, according to Women’s Wear Daily.

Chanel-Coco-Crush-Jewelry-Net-a-Porter

A lot of murmuring has gone on about Chanel’s interest in e-commerce recently, and the brand’s interest in exploring the medium is clear. This morning, Chanel took another step in that direction, debuting the Chanel Coco Crush Fine Jewelry Collection in a pop-up shopping site at Net-a-Porter.

Chanel-Online-Sales

If you’ve been waiting for the day you can buy a brand new Chanel bag online, your wait is almost up–sort of. Late last week, Women’s Wear Daily spoke to Bruno Pavlovsky, Chanel’s president of fashion, during the brand’s re-showing of the Metiers d’Art 2015 collection in New York City.

Louis-Vuitton-The-Spirit-of-Travel-Spring-2015-Ad-Campaign-3

When it’s still this cold at the end of March, it’s impossible not to start thinking about travel to places on the globe where we can get some relief. In that sense, the Louis Vuitton The Spirit of Travel Spring 2015 campaign is perfectly timed–who wouldn’t want to look at images of models, beautiful bags in hand, frolicking in front of perfectly turquoise seas in the French West Indes?

Mansur-Gavriel-Mini-Mini-Bucket-Bag

I’ve worked at PurseBlog since 2009, and I’ve never had as many people ask me how to get their hands on anything as often as they ask me how to get a Mansur Gavriel bag. Today, I’m here with an answer: open up MansurGavriel.com in a tab at work and refresh it periodically.

Chanel-Chevron-Quilted-Classic-Flap-Bag-4900

If you noticed that Chanel took its handbag prices off its website earlier this week, we now know why: yesterday, Women’s Wear Daily reported that the brand will begin “harmonizing” its global prices on April 8.

Reed-Krakoff-Suspends-Operations

Late last week, Women’s Wear Daily reported that Reed Krakoff would suspend operations while in pursuit of new investment to keep the line afloat. While the news itself is a surprise, it’s not shocking that something was up at Krakoff’s company; it’s the third young, well-known brand in the past several months to either partially or completely shut down.

Spring-2015-Handbag-Ad-Campaigns

Even though bags rarely take center stage at runway shows, they, along with cosmetics and shoes, are the things that brands usually need to sell in order to keep business chugging along; most designers cannot survive by clothes alone.

Net-a-Porter-International-Women's-Day

Today is International Women’s Day, and if you’re not familiar with it, plenty of fashion brands and companies are interested in broadening your awareness. The day, which was originally founded in the early 1900s is intended raise awareness for gender inequality and celebrate female accomplishment the world over.

Givenchy-Antigona-Bag

There’s an old saying about the only sure things in life being death and taxes, but if you’re a handbag buyer, there’s another inevitability: price increases. With brands like Chanel, Hermès and Louis Vuitton, they’re fairly easy to track; because the bags are only available from the company’s boutiques, all the new product arrives at once and sales associates warn their loyal customers in advance.

Chanel Price Increase 2015

Price increases for the big brands all seem to be hitting around the same time this year, and that is not good for anyone in the market for a new bag. First we told you Hermès was upping its already steep prices in the beginning of the year, next came the rumors of the Louis Vuitton price increase, and now it’s Chanel.
