Tomorrow, at 2 pm EST, we are hosting a live chat with Rebecca Minkoff on the PurseForum. We are really excited to launch our new series, #AskMeAnything, where you can log on and ask the designer anything you’d like, from fashion to life as a designer, and more.
Rebecca Minkoff Handbags and Purses
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Bowie Baby Bag
Price: $195 via Rebecca Minkoff
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Rebecca Minkoff partnered with Christy Turlington’s Every Mother Counts organization on this bag. 20% of the proceeds of each bag sold will go to EMC to improve global maternal health and make pregnancy and childbirth safe for mothers around the world.
It’s truly been a joy to watch my friend Rebecca Minkoff grow over the years. From starting a line with only a few bag designs (like the famed Morning After) to expanding into a well-known brand whose wares include bags, clothing, shoes and jewelry, Rebecca Minkoff has changed before our eyes.
Whenever a bag from the handbag market’s highest price tier hits a certain point of critical mass, it comes time for designers at lower price points to adapt the look for their own purposes. Céline and Givenchy have been the most popular sources of this kind of “inspiration” over the past few seasons, and now the Rebecca Minkoff Love Bags have the Chanel Boy Bag in their sights.
