I’m normally a fan of all the products of Karl Lagerfeld’s acute insanity, but I’m not sure how I feel about My New Friend “Boy”, the new short film (read: commercial) that Lagerfeld directed, starring Alice Dellal (little sister of Charlotte Olympia designer Charlotte Dellal) and Chanel‘s new Boy Chanel bag line. Does Instagram have a new video app that I don’t know about?

I’m not sure that Dellal is much of an actress, and stomping around a mansion with a beautiful handbag just a little too far out of frame for it to be properly seen doesn’t do much to make me interested in the bag, even though I adore the Boy Chanel line. If Lagerfeld had dialed back the vintage filtering just a bit, I think the video (and its audience) would have benefited immensely, but I’ll reserve final judgment until the still shots emerge; Chanel’s have been beautiful recently. What say you? Take a look at the video above and sound off in the comments.

If you’re here reading this, odds are that you’ve spent thousands of dollars on handbags and accessories in your lifetime, but how well do you understand what goes into making them? I’m betting that most bag lovers have only a vague idea at best, but wouldn’t it be fun to be able to take a peek behind the curtain?

Thanks to an excellent series of videos of Neiman Marcus’s blog, we can do just that with the famous Marc Jacobs Stam as our guinea pig. The four clips take us all the way from conception to manufacturing, and all of the important details of realizing an idea are there, from making the patterns to dying the leather to bending the metal for the Stam’s signature frame. My favorite video is the fourth one, above, which shows how the Marc Jacobs bag is actually assembled. You can check out the first three after the jump and view the original posts at Neiman Marcus Daily. (more…)

Anyone who’s ever tried to push a needle through any kind of durable material knows that doing it in an orderly, aesthetically pleasing way is nearly impossible, which just makes the amount of handwork that goes into some of Hermes’ leather goods all the more impressive. (more…)

People always wonder why Hermes handbags cost so much, and the answer is a complicated one, just like it would be difficult to explain why a Bentley costs as much as the average American pays for a house; the prices simply aren’t based on materials and labor alone. In fact, the video tour of Hermes’ newest Paris store probably gives a much more succinct illustration than words ever could. (more…)

Promotional videos are all the rage among high-end brands these days, and with its accessories profile rising quickly, Loewe is the latest brand to release a clip to the ravenous fashion hordes of the Internet. What do we learn from this video? Nothing, except that Loewe probably paid a filmmaker a lot of money for a minute and change worth of exploding Amazona handbags, which strikes me as kind of awesome in a completely nonsensical way.
