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.


Welcome to June, bag lovers, and thank you for joining us for June’s first PurseForum Roundup. This week, we took some time to look at shoes and then went on to visit Céline, Coach and more.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton debuted an expansive Cruise 2017 collection in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier this week, but news out of the South American country wasn’t all positive for the French luxury brand. According to the New York Times, the Vuitton store in Rio’s upscale Ipanema neighborhood was robbed Tuesday morning, only two days after the attention-grabbing show.


Memorial Day is past, and summer is here in every way except the official one. (Gotta wait for that summer solstice to roll around.) And if you don’t plan to live in Birkenstocks through late August like I do, you might be in need of a little summer footwear inspiration.

Bag Deals

There’s no time to waste, so let’s get right to it: we’re a week deep in sale season, discounts and selection are both pretty good across all of your favorite retailers and new stock has been added to most sale sections we checked.

MCM Rockstar Vanity Case 1

You know when a brand isn’t new but hasn’t quite been on your radar, and then one day you realize it is the brand you’re totally into it? That’s been happening to me with MCM recently, and it’s only gotten stronger.

Valentino  Blue Stone & Rockstud Cage Heels

If you were too busy enjoying the unseasonably warm weather this past weekend and didn’t get a chance to check out the awesome Memorial Day sales, there’s no need to fret. The long weekend has come and gone, but the awesome sales are still going strong.


By the looks of it, Dior had quite the front row for its Cruise 2017 show at Blenheim Castle in the English countryside. Not only did attendees include actresses, models, rock royalty and actual royalty from across the globe, but basically all of them also joined the brand for a big after-party at tony Loulou’s Members Club in London later in the evening.


If it seems like it was very recently that we brought you news of a brand new world record Hermès Birkin sale, that’s because it was. In April, Privé Porter sold a Birkin in braise red crocodile for $298,000 to a collector in California, but now, according to CNN, that figure has been eclipsed by a Birkin sold by Christie’s in Hong Kong for just over $300,000.

In Case You Missed It

I’ve been sitting at my desk in a state of existential paralysis all day because it seems like it cannot possible be June already, like I cannot possible exist and make decisions and live my life in a world in which it is June 2016, but no matter how long I stare into the middle distance, it persists in being June outside.

Louis Vuitton

In a reminder that fashion is a truly global industry, Louis Vuitton debuted its Cruise 2017 collection in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, over the weekend while most of America was grilling hot dogs, not contemplating global fashion or the coming Olympics, which will also be held in Rio.


The first couple days back at work from a holiday weekend are always rough, but today, we have something that may soothe your soul just a little bit: Chanel‘s new Metiers d’Art Paris in Rome 2017 bags hit stores today, and we have the collection’s lookbook, which includes nearly four dozen bag and US pricing info for all but a couple.
