We can’t think of a better way to start a new month than with a new bag, and our PurseForum members certainly agree. As we continue our exploration over on the PurseForum, our members revealed a bevy of gorgeous new bags in the super-popular Louis Vuitton subforum.
We’re three-quarters of the way through the Spring 2017 shows, which puts us right at the end of Milan and the beginning of Paris. Before we metaphorically pick up our website and head to the City of Lights, though, we have to look back at all the best bags from the Milan runways, and any experienced bag lover knows there was surely much to see.
Michael Kors has always been among the brands that innovate by including influencers and focusing on social media. Recently, Kors released his latest campaign, The Walk, which features four trendsetters with distinct style personalities. It includes singer/songwriter, founder of Saint Heron and CEO of Saint Records Solange Knowles; models Soo Joo Park and Nina Agdal; and Princess Olympia of Greece.
Let’s face it: accessories that work together make getting dressed a whole lot easier. Life isn’t always so kind, and sometimes we need to rush around a bit more than we’d like to. Whether you’re running late to a lunch meeting or to pick up the kids from school, comfortable, functional wardrobe mainstays are always on your side.
Bottega Veneta doesn’t often debut brand new handbag designs, and when it does, it’s usually not on the runway. That means the brand’s Spring 2017 show, marking Bottega Veneta’s 50th anniversary, was a particular treat to the brand’s many dedicated fans: not only were there a bunch of new bags, but the lineup spanned both men’s and women’s collections.
For Prada Spring 2017, brand matriarch Miuccia Prada said that she wanted to de-intellectualize her normal design process in favor of finding some elegance in the here and now. The results were wearable pieces with luxe details like marabou and exotic leathers, as well as two new bag styles: a chain-strap flap bag and a duffel-style satchel.
When we started PurseBlog and PurseForum 11 years ago, we decided I’d write, Vlad would focus on tech and the majority of our content would be about designer bags. I’d share my thoughts on a bag with you and I’d chat with the ladies on our PurseForum, but I didn’t want to go overboard in sharing myself or my personal life.
