You all know how much I love what’s happening at Gucci, and the good news is sometimes the designers we love have sales, and that is happening right now at Gucci. The Gucci Private Sale is live and has a great assortment of bags, shoes, accessories and more, right now.
Happy Friday! We are back with another edition of the PurseForum Roundup. The PurseForum is busy around the clock as members from all over the world share stories, advice, reveals and so much more. Over the years, the PurseForum has evolved to include several lifestyle areas such as Home & Garden and Books & Music, and we also have areas to discuss health, relationships, careers and many other topics.
Our PurseForum is full of some really great threads, and many of those threads are full of jaw-dropping photos of bags. Last week, we rounded up our favorite photos from Louis Vuitton’s Louis Vuitton bags from the popular thread Who’s In Your Passenger Seat thread, and this week we’re shedding light on a popular destination in the Chanel subforum.
Detecting nascent trends is more art that science. Some bags are everywhere all of a sudden for reasons that don’t have much to do with celebrities or “influencers” (my apologies) objectively liking them, and figuring out whether a bag’s sudden surge in visibility is planned or organic requires a feel for the market.
Customization is a huge accessories trend no matter when it happens. An ever-increasing number of brands offer hot stamping or monogramming to help customers feel like they’re purchasing something special, and shoppers can add anything from furry monster charms to after-market pavé diamond-encrusted hardware to their bags once they’ve swiped their credit cards.
