Gucci Bamboo Satchel

Happy Friday, PurseForum Roundup readers! Summer flew by in the blink of an eye, and here we are looking toward the beginnings of autumn. This week, we wandered around The Playground and Celebrity subforums for a bit, and then visited CoachChloé and Gucci.

Coach Spring 2015 Runway (14)

From the moment we entered the Coach Spring 2015 show, it was clear that creative director Stuart Vevers has yet to end his love affair with the idea of traditional Americana. From the engine sounds on the soundtrack to the flat, dusty West Texas vistas on the walls, the theme was much subtler in the bags, outwear and clothes than it was in the collection’s surroundings.

NYFW-SS15-Day-1-8

Yesterday marked the first day of New York Fashion Week Spring 2015, and that means it was also our first day of street-style bag-spotting outside of Lincoln Center. Check out the spoils of Vlad’s photographic efforts below, and be sure to check back every day or for of the notable accessories that we spotted on the stylish sidewalks of Fashion Week. Read More…

Mansur Gavriel Spring 2015 Bags 13

By now, you know the drill: Mansur Gavriel bags are cult favorites, they’re permanently sold out and it’s virtually impossible to get your hands on one without a months-in-advance pre-order. The good news, however, is that an opportunity for one such pre-order just arose at Moda Operandi, and it includes canvas and soft leather bags that are brand new for Spring 2015.

Here’s Kendall Jenner, dropping into the Barneys Soho location for a little shopping break after a couple days of pre-NYFW model castings. (No word on which designers’ runway show she’ll appear in first.) Her bag is an all-black Céline Nano Luggage Tote, which is among her favorites, and makes an appearance on both sisters in the The Many Bags of Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

Alessandra Ambrosio Chloe Clare Python Shoulder Bag

Here’s Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, shopping with her daughter Aja in Santa Monica and carrying a chic Chloé Clare Python Shoulder Bag. No one can rock a pair of totally destroyed cut-off shorts with a designer handbag quite like Alessandra.

North West Saint Laurent Monogramme Studded Shoulder Bag

She’s already been photographed carrying (“carrying”) Chanel in CR Fashion Book, and with parents like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it was clearly only a matter of time until little North West started carrying bags of her own, even if she still lacks the manual dexterity necessary to actually grasp them in her adorably chubby little toddler hands. Luckily, this Saint Laurent Monogramme Shoulder Bag can be draped across her tiny body. Read More…
