We know you love our end-of-the-week PurseForum Roundups, but sometimes one roundup isn’t enough to showcase all the amazing handbag images our members posts on a daily basis. That’s why we’re going to start featuring more of the best images uploaded to the PurseFourm‘s most popular topics, and we hope you’ll upload some great pictures as well.
If you’re one of our readers who has marveled incredulously at the meteoric rise of Mansur Gavriel‘s simple, traditional bags, some new research may help explain the phenomenon a little more clearly.

Last week, right after the Met Gala, Chanel debuted its Cruise 2016/17 collection in Havana, Cuba. The controversial location was announced months ago and many awaited what Karl Lagerfeld had in store for one of the first big, public events to be held in the country since travel restrictions have loosened.
Last week, Mulberry released to shoppers Johnny Coca’s first handbag designs as creative director of the British label, and this week, the brand has debuted something that may prove even more interesting to longtime fans: the brand new Mulberry Bayswater, which is Coca’s take on Mulberry’s most popular style.

Handbag names are usually pretty boring. Designers routinely choose supermodels’ first names, names of famous Manhattan streets (uptown or downtown, depending on the brand’s market positioning), nonsense words meant to sound expensive or exotic and are distinctive enough return helpful Google results for online shoppers–mundane stuff.
Buying a pre-owned bag can be daunting. I know firsthand how exciting the hunt can be, and then how nerve-wracking it can be to actually make the purchase. We already gave you a comprehensive guide on how to make a wise pre-owned bag purchase, and even after you’ve done your research and feel good about a bag’s authenticity, we still recommend getting your bag authenticated on our PurseFourm.
