I’m continually surprised and impressed by our PurseForum members. The kinds of things that these ladies are able to get their hands on before the rest of the fashion community always impresses me; it’s like they were all detectives in another life. If you need a handbag mystery solved, it’s them you should be asking. They can find anything, even things that brands try very hard to prevent from being found.

Take, for example, this page from a Balenciaga boutique’s sales book, which shows the Balenciaga Fall 2012 color swatches in all their glory and which we found in a thread on our Forum. These are the shades that Balenciaga’s much-loved Motorcycle Bags will be made in for the coming pre-collection and collection, the first of which will start hitting stores at the end of the summer. Want to see how these hues are going to look on actual bags? Well, you’re in luck. Check out an expandable swatch chart and a first look at the bags after the jump. (more…)

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to know how things work and fit together. I used to take apart and reassemble all my toys, day after day, with endless curiosity. Unfortunately, fashion doesn’t lend itself to the same kind of inquisitiveness unless you’ve got unlimited funds to buy yourself a new Chanel Flap Bag after you ruin your first one after it gets assembled. That’s where our friends at StyleRepublic come in – somehow, they pulled a behind-the-scenes tour of the Chanel Classic Flap manufacturing process, and they’ve got lots of gorgeous pictures to let us know exactly how the magic happens. We’ve taken you behind the scenes into the making of a Chanel bag before, but I thought perhaps the topic was worth revisiting with these beautiful pictures. Check out our favorites after the jump or peep the full feature via StyleRepublic. (more…)
