Coach Pre Spring 2017 Bags (1)

Fashion, as an industry, takes itself very seriously. When designers try to have fun, they often lose their footing and go full-on into kitsch that just doesn’t feel very luxurious; designing pieces that feel both playful and expensive is harder than simply going whole-hog into the obvious trappings of high aesthetics.

Celebs have always loved the Classic Flaps, and on any given week, they might love them more than their Chanel Boy Bags. But we seem to have had a series of such weeks for almost a month now.

Prada Woven Madras-Pattern Shoulder Bag
Prada

Prada is hard at work diversifying its handbag selection season after season, proving there’s much more to the brand than Saffiano bags. (Although, if you ask me, those are still some of the best bags out there for long wear and daily use.) We got our hands on the Prada Woven Madras-Pattern Shoulder Bag last week, and I fell for it immediately.

purseblog-snapcodeThe number of ways to follow any given person or website seemingly always increasing, and while we aren’t the biggest Snapchat fiends, we love to share a look into our world (and, of course, a look at great bags)! This morning, we headed to the Coach Pre Spring 2017 Women’s Preview, and while we’ll share pictures from the event on the site tomorrow, we have your first glimpse on our Snapchat right now. Be sure to follow us on Snapchat at username PurseBlog to check it out!

We know it’s been a while since we did a #PBWIMB roundup. Luckily, that hasn’t stopped all of you from posting some gorgeous pics of your designer bags and the hidden treasures you keep inside. On that note, we’re excited to start featuring your Instagrams again.

Accessories

Chanel is one of the biggest and most sought-after accessories brands in the world, and although its best known for its iconic handbags, those are only part of the story. Each season, Chanel also releases an impressive array of wallets, pouches, almost-handbags and other small leather goods, and Chanel fans go justifiably nuts for them.

Givenchy

Givenchy has been teasing its newest handbag hard since it first gave shoppers a look at its Pre-Fall 2016 collection in January, and we finally have pricing information and a name for the design debut: the Givenchy Horizon Bag, which so far comes in two sizes and starts at $2,490.

VC Polo Classic 2016 (1)
Events

A couple years ago, we attended our first Vueve Cliquot Polo Classic in NYC, and it was one of those experiences you don’t forget. This year, Vlad headed back to NYC to shoot the event again (I had serious FOMO back in Florida), and from what he shared and the photos I saw, it was another one of those pinch-me-is-this-real kinds of days.

Gucci

It seems almost unfair to call Alessandro Michele’s work at Gucci just fashion collections. In his relatively short stint at the brand, Michele has created an entire aesthetic universe that somehow feels both brand new and like it’s how Gucci has looked forever, and for Cruise 2017, that world has expanded once again.

When you look at celebrity snapshots as often as I do, you sometimes get the impression that you’re doing something wrong. You could be brunching better. You could experiment a lot more with your fashion choices.
