Hello and welcome. If you’re a veteran PurseBlog reader, feel free to skip ahead to what happens below, with which you are surely well familiar. If you’re new here, allow me to explain. Even though designer sale season happens but twice a year (and neither of those times is right now), discounted designer bags can still be found for those who are willing to dig through the internet’s nooks and crannies.
As the year comes to and end, we thought it only appropriate to take a look back on celebrities, their handbags and the happy moments they made together. For 2015, we went beyond the usual Chanel Flaps and Hermès Birkins to celebrate some more interesting and seasonal choices; after all, variety is the spice of life.
It might be Friday the 13th, but there is nothing to fear in today’s customary, week-ending round of the Internet’s best bag deals. (Okay, there might be something for your credit card to fear, but you’re getting a discount, okay?) You can check them all out below, including two totally gorgeous Proenza Schouler PS1s in great colors for less than $900 each.
We’ve inched one day closer to our favorite day of the year, National Handbag Day, and we’re still thick in the midst of preparation and celebration. (Not that we don’t celebrate bags every day, because: duh.) Today, we’re taking a close look at some of Fall 2015’s most popular pieces, and I’ve read my tea leaves to see who it is who might be picking these pieces up for the season.
Dueling Fashion Weeks should always make for some fantastic celeb handbag voyeurism, and Milan and Paris are definitely delivering. (BTW, have you seen the latest runway offerings from Bottega Veneta, Prada, Fendi and Gucci? Or the great bags that Milan Fashion Week attendees are carrying?)
Meanwhile, back on the mainland, celebs are making some surprisingly novel and surprisingly affordable bag picks.
We’re still in the thick of New York Fashion Week, which, as you well know by now, is often more interesting outside the shows than inside them. Vlad is documenting the best handbag looks he sees on show attendees every day, but handbags find themselves front-and-center in lots of general street style photos, too.
As if on cue, celebs have suddenly swapped out the uber-distressed denim short shorts for linen blazers, summer dresses and all the elegant wardrobe staples we associate with summer. This celeb bag roundup also features a very visceral, summery mix of colors and textures: off-whites, light greys, linens and stitched leathers.
