By far one of the best parts of my first week back at school was Fashion Week – I jetted (well, ok, I took the subway) to shows before and after class. But I was highly anticipating the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2011 show, and now I can say with full confidence that it exceeded my expectations. (more…)
It’s hot outside – why not cool down with some new handbags?
Ok, so these Rebecca Minkoff bags might not help regulate your temperature, but free bags are always cool nonetheless. We’ve teamed up with the fine folks at Parenting magazine to bring you a collection of three of Minkoff’s bags, valued at $1185, that are up for grabs today and today only.

A entire feeling of joy and excitement just came over me when I realized that the next round of Sample Sale season will be when Vlad and I live in NYC. That means I won’t have to post about these Sample Sales that I am dying to go to but can’t, rather I can bring you updated posts a-la-Racked style with photos and a play-by-play of the event.
One of the sample sales that is much awaited by PurseBlog and PurseForum members is Rebecca Minkoff‘s. Because of her huge PurseForum fan base, Rebecca continues to open up a VIP night for the members. The lines from what I have heard are long but the loot is good. Here are both sample sale invites: the one for the VIP night (you all) and the one for the public (if you cannot make VIP night). Make sure to pop over to PurseForum then to chat with other Minkettes about the sample sale madness! (more…)
After releasing a capsule collection for HSN, Rebecca Minkoff has decided to debut a luxury handbag collection exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue this May. For its first collection, iconic Rebecca Minkoff bags such as the Nikki and Morning After bag are being refined in lizard skin and other luxe materials. Along with some of her well-known designs, Rebecca Minkoff is introducing new shapes to the line. Some of these include a drawstring bucket bag, oversized classic tote, and a side-saddle messenger bag.
I chose to partner with Saks to launch my collection line because of the timeless luxury and superior quality the store represents,” said Minkoff. “It is an exciting honor to join the list of exclusive luxury handbag designers available at Saks Fifth Avenue. Saks customers are already familiar with the current Rebecca Minkoff line and have been very supportive over the years. I am hoping to not only provide my existing customers with a more luxurious option, but to also tap into a new set of young Saks shoppers who purchase designer bags for the style and quality, not just the label.
A day before the Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2010 presentation was slated to begin, Rebecca herself tweeted, “Who is afraid of a little snow??? The show must go on!” Well, that was before “a little snow” turned out to be a full-on blizzard that was enough to close all public and private schools and universities in Manhattan save for Columbia University (thanks guys.)
Therefore, if I was going to have classes as the snow frantically swirled around the city, I was going to make it to the Rebecca Minkoff presentation. Needless to say, I did make it despite my dislike of the cold and of the coldness of the snow, and it was extremely worth it. You see, I’ve been to a few traditional presentations, where the models stand on raised platforms and generally achieve a death stare whilst remaining in the same position. But no, this show switched it up, and the models were bubbly, twisting and turning at various intervals to show off the funky wares. (more…)
We followed up with our Rebecca Minkoff Spring Preview with a short interview with Rebecca Minkoff. We asked some forum members what questions they had for Rebecca Minkoff and here she answers.
Find out what is next for the brand, how the economy has affected her business, and when the next sample sales are!
For our last business trip to New York City, we knew it was time to step up our game. For the purpose of showcasing wonderful new bag candy, images did the job, but video was definitely better. Without further ado, we’re proud to present our first official Purse Blog Video coverage. In full 720p high definition and then some!
Our first victim of this cunning stunt was successful designer and friend Rebecca Minkoff. She took her time to present her upcoming goodies for Spring 2010. In our next video, we will have a whole interview with Rebecca, along with a further preview of her creations.
Please let us know your comments and suggestions below and look forward to more reel-licious coverage from Purse Blog in the coming weeks.
The Rebecca Minkoff Roadie is a favorite here! I played around with the Roadie and fell in love. I could imagine slinging her over my shoulder for a long road trip, traveling, or just going out and about. It is easy to wear, the perfect size, and has the perfect zing with the studs. There is an easy access exterior zip pocket and interior zip, slip, and card pockets. Wear it casually across your body or sling it over your shoulder. Measurements are 13″W x 9″H x 5″D; 18″. Buy the Roadie via Nordstrom for $575.
Yesterday the world lost arguably the biggest pop star in the world. A man that redefined the music industry as we know it today, the world is remembering Michael Jackson. While many mourn, many are playing his music and remember the musical genius. Michael Jackson sold 3/4 of a billion albums, was known for his moonwalk, was in the music scene for 40 years of his 50 year life, and became known for his fashion choices such as his glittered glove. His influence on the music industry can be seen by many of the artists we listen to today and his fashion choices influenced the world of fashion as well.
The Rebecca Minkoff Matinee flaps on either end of the bag were designed after the legendary red leather jacket Michael Jackson wore in his Thriller video. We covered this bag before when we first saw the resemblance, which was then affirmed by Rebecca. Without knowing it, Michael Jackson’s influence made its way into the handbag world.
A small way for us to say we will remember the King of Pop. Rest in peace Michael Jackson.
