Kate Spade New York Fall 2016 (23)

Change is afoot. Designers, brands and retailers have been trying to figure a way to recalibrate Fashion Week in the age of digital media since before I arrived in New York to work in the industry five years ago, and brands are finally starting to put their money where their mouths are in hopes of alchemizing the press circus around fashion shows into real, tangible sales.

Handbag Stains

Not long ago, I was carrying my white Proenza Schouler PS1 and my friend remarked how clean and stain-free it is. Fast forward two days later and I checked the back of the PS1 to find pretty noticeable color transfer, most likely from a dark pair of jeans I was wearing during that very same conversation with my friend; the bag now looked dirty and gross.

Louis-Vuitton-Ombre-Crocodile-Capucines-Bag

A couple months ago, we brought you news of Louis Vuitton’s most expensive women’s bag ever, but the brand has already eclipsed itself handily. An ombre crocodile version of the popular Louis Vuitton Capucines Bag will now set you back a cool $60,500, easily beating the $55,500 City Steamer.

I am, in general, in favor of fun. Pro-fun, if you will. I like ice cream and puppies and most things that are generally considered fun. I do well at parties. What I’m getting bored with, though, is fun fashion.

Fendi-Croc-Embossed-3Jours-Bag

I’ve already detailed the gifts I’d love to be receiving for Christmas (and my birthday!) this year, but there’s always one more you forgot about, isn’t there? For me, that’s the Fendi 3Jours Croc-Embossed Calf Hair Bag; the texture on the front is just way too cool.

Online-Shopping-Preferences

Thanksgiving and the week following are a frenetic time to be interested in fashion. Most retailers only put the really good bags on sale twice a year, and everyone knows when to expect the fall sales because they’re so clearly marked by a holiday.

Thanksgiving Bags 2011

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US, and although we know that PurseBlog readers hail from near and far, giving thanks and being grateful seems like something we can all agree on, even without a specific holiday.

Black-Friday-2015

In spite of the fact that it’s yet to get genuinely cold in NYC and it therefore does not feel like the holidays quite yet, we are exactly one week out from Black Friday 2015. If you’re a longtime PurseBlog reader, you already know what that means around here: bag-centric coverage of the Internet’s best designer deals so you guys know you’re nabbing the best purses at the best prices.

Best-Customer-Service

When we broke the news of Chanel’s new refurbishment policy last week, we knew it would incite a lot of conversations among our readers about customer service, luxury goods and the expectations we have when we spend a premium.
