When we started PurseBlog and PurseForum over ten years ago, the very first designer we met was Rebecca Minkoff. At the time, Rebecca and her team were working out of an apartment below her own place, and the tiny NYC office was filled with boxes and bags from end to end.
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.
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.
