Over the past week, something has changed. I’m not sure exactly what happened, but the Internet’s handbag sale pages went from being a barren handbag wasteland to being…well, slightly less barren. Sale season is nowhere near to full swing, but some rather notable handbag options have been added to almost every major retailer’s sale page in the past seven days, and we’ve assembled the best of the best into our weekly roundup of bag deals below.
It’s safe to say that, at one point or another, almost all of us have found ourselves lusting over something we saw on Instagram and spent endless hours on shopping sites trying to find the exact match, only to come up empty-handed.
After watching two weeks of stars looking super chic and Cannes and ever-increasing talk of the upcoming World Cup, we’ve been thinking about our international readers (and our favorite international retailers). Below, check out the week’s best new arrivals at online boutiques the world over.
Last week, we thought our Want It Wednesday sale picks were sufficient – after all, a ton of sales had sprung up over Memorial Day weekend! Then we got to Thursday, and suddenly we had double the sales to choose from, so this week, we’re back for a second round.
Although the most notorious outfit at last night’s 2014 CFDA Awards didn’t include a clutch (if you’ve seen photo’s of Rihanna’s dress from last night, you know it didn’t include much), we found plenty of attendees who carried beautiful little clutches and evening bags from both their designer dates and other brands.
Our weekly bag deals posts are always pretty easy to decipher, but this one’s particularly simple: every luxury retailer on the planet is having an amazing sale right now, and we found great bags everywhere we looked. So not only is this week’s list of deals significantly longer than usual, but you might just want to head straight to Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, MATCHESFASHION.COM or Net-a-Porter, to name only a few.
Whether you’re a Coachella die-hard or a casual concertgoer, one thing we can all agree on is that there’s nothing worse than having to fuss around with your bag when all you want to do is dance. While crossbody bags and backpacks leave your hands free for taking pictures and enjoying an ice cold beer, they can sometimes get in the way of your ridiculously good dance moves.
The Row has made bold accessory moves one of its brand signatures; the brand debuted its handbag line with a $34,000 alligator backpack at a time when no one in the industry thought backpacks could be a luxury draw, after all.
