One of the best things about working at PurseBlog is getting to bounce ideas, stories and opinions off of my coworkers on a daily basis. We’re a tight-knit group, and we all have very distinctive tastes and viewpoints on fashion, style and shopping.

Black Givenchy Antigona Bags aren’t exactly a tough sell; not only has the brand been moving them briskly for seasons, but the ultra-expensive exotic versions sell out before they even hit the sales floor. It’s the kind of bag every designer dreams of creating, because it more or less enables a company to print money for a couple of years.
About a month ago, you helped me decide on my new pretty pink Givenchy bag. It is my first Givenchy bag, and while my collection of bags is fairly sizable, I recognize that there are brands I’m lacking. It isn’t always because of want, but I guess I just never get to the place of pulling the trigger and find other brands that I like.
Fashion is like any other form of creative expression: an opportunity to be publicly clever or publicly inane, depending on your natural predilection. Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane generally chooses the latter, even if he makes some damn fine Chelsea boots, and he’s at it again with the Saint Laurent Metallic Gun Clutch.
Creating an It Bag requires a little bit of alchemy. Designers can follow all of the correct design steps, put all their marketing dollars behind a design, cast the perfect It Girl for the campaign and still fall well short of handbag hysteria.
The Chanel Boy Bag continues to sell briskly and inspire lust in consumers all over the world, and in response to the demand, Chanel has produced the bag in a wide variety of colors, sizes and materials. You immediately get classic Chanel vibes when you see the Boy Bag, but it’s more casual and approachable than some of the brand’s more traditional offerings.
Last week, Chavie Lieber of Racked interviewed me for an in-depth look at the cult of Goyard. It’s a brand unlike any other we cover; even Hermès, in all of its tradition and conservatism, still debuts seasonal collections at Paris Fashion Week, sells a portion of its product line on its website and has boutiques in all the world’s major luxury markets.
