Rebecca Minkoff

Page 5

Our community PurseForum is teaming up with Rebecca Minkoff in a project the likes of which handbag lovers have never seen before. Starting tomorrow, Monday the 10th of October, PurseForum.com will launch a three-week collaboration that will not only have fans vote on design elements to create an exclusive Rebecca Minkoff bag, but also allow the fans to be an integral part of the design process. This means the finished product will be a new shape and style from the Rebecca Minkoff team that was designed by way of direct user commentary from PurseForum.com members.

The entire three-week process will be hosted on PurseForm.com, so make sure you are a registered member of tPF so you can partake in the voting and design of this bag, which will walk down the runway in February at New York Fashion Week! You can’t tell by this post, but I am seriously jumping out of my seat with excitement over such an amazing project!!

Rebecca Minkoff Chetah M.A.C, $395 via Rebecca Minkoff

Probably one of my favorite bags ever from Rebecca Minkoff is the M.A.C. clutch. Spacious yet compact, the RM team has released this bag in a plethora of designs and materials to give every Minkette the perfect option. From tons of zippers, to metallic snakeskin, to animal prints, I own four Morning After Clutches. I want to make it five by adding the Rebecca Minkoff Cheetah Haircalf M.A.C. to my collection.

One of our favorite designers (and new mommy to a baby boy), Rebecca Minkoff, will be running her first print ad in October’s debut issue of Style.com Magazine. Always ahead of the curve, Rebecca Minkoff has decided to turn to her fans to help create the ad by submitting Instagram photos of their Rebecca Minkoff items.

To make sure the RM team sees your entries, simply tag every photo on Instagram that you want to enter with #RebeccaMinkoff between now and October 1. I am already taking photos (shown above) and hope to see many of you participate as well. Some of their favorite entries will be included alongside professional shots of accessories and her Resort 2012 collection.

Yes, I just used pirate talk in the title of a post. Unlike Amanda, I did not go to journalism school, so my chemistry and psychology professors from college won’t be mad at my word choice in the title, however they may still be questioning what I am doing with my life.

What I am doing is telling you about this crazy cool Rebecca Minkoff bag that I saw in the showroom recently and found myself oddly attracted to. Skulls made a major appearance in the fashion world a couple years ago and seem to be making a slight resurgence. The Rebecca Minkoff Skull Knit Tote pairs the rockin’ look of skulls with knit in an unlikely but welcomed combination. (more…)

If there’s one thing you should note about Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2012, it’s how well the handbag maven knows her customers. Her Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York runway show seemed to be actively daring “Minkettes” to feature her clothes on their personal style blogs, and if that wasn’t clear enough, having Leandra Medine, the ManRepeller herself, walk the runway (and then snap a photo at the end) should have put a very fine point on it.

And that’s exactly what Minkoff’s clothes are: Fun, trendy duds for girls in their 20s who want to be the most stylish person at the party and maybe get a couple of Tumblr posts out of it. I could imagine these pieces on a lot of the girls that you see hanging out on the steps at Lincoln Center outside of Fashion Week’s festivities, and I bet that’s exactly the girl who Minkoff would like to dress.

It warms the cockles of my cold little blogger heart to see contemporary brands expanding into luggage in creative ways. First came the Lulu Guinness suitcases covered with her signature molded lips, and now we have the Rebecca Minkoff Skull Suitcase. I’d like one of each, please.

I’m not much of a crafty girl, but the trompe l’oeil knitted look of the pattern (indeed, other bags in this collection are actually made out of a woven material) provides just enough kitsch to balance out the tough look of a skull and crossbones. Instead of weaving, the bag is made of durable coated canvas that might actually survive a trip through the airport ringer. (more…)

As the Rebecca Minkoff brand continues to expand, the offerings continue to appeal to a larger crowd. The design aesthetic that I continually find myself drawn to is precisely what Rebecca Minkoff Resort 2012 offered; beautiful prints, flowing clothing, and colors that are both subtle and alluring.

The collection was inspired by the 1970’s in St. Tropez, France. The idea behind the prints was to invoke the look sunlight gives as it shines through broken pieces of glass, which results in an array of beautiful, muted hues. Dominant colors of the Resort 2012 collection include azure, sunset, persimmon, and turquoise. (more…)

One of my favorite Rebecca Minkoff designs is her MAC clutch. I own six of these bags in different colors and materials and never get sick of it. The design tranitions flawlessly from day to night and is sizable enough to carry plenty of objects.

In fact, I carried my new copper snakeskin effect MAC today and it fit my continental wallet, keys, iPhone, lipstick, eyeglass cleaning cloth, inhaler, and lollipop. Actually, there was probably more in there, but it packed in nicely and was not bulky at all. This clutch is clutch.

Balenciaga Raffia Tote, $965 via Barneys. Rebecca Minkoff Endless Love Straw Tote, $250 via ShopBop

It is here, it is here!!! ‘It‘ being summer. Well, kind of here, not totally 100% here but it is trying to arrive. With warm weather and vacation season knocking at our doors, many are working on their beach bodies and prepping their summer wardrobe. For an accessory lover, that should include a raffia tote.

While raffia totes are clearly only suited for May, June, July, and August, that is still a third of the year and that means it will be a great wardrobe addition. If you do not want to splurge on a designer option like the Balenciaga Raffia Tote, we found a look for less with the Rebecca Minkoff Endless Love Straw Tote. (more…)
