    In a sign of its continued growth with Sarah Burton at the helm, Alexander McQueen has announced it will open its first store in China. The esteemed British fashion house will open a flagship boutique in Beijing in late October or November of this year. Many of us were uncertain how Alexander McQueen would fare after [...]
  2. Gucci Monogram Canvas And Leather Shoulder Bag | Classic Logo Print Handbag - 2011-09-12 20:58:50-04
    Gucci has really been drawing on their roots this season. Every bag they put out seems to be more classic than the next. This monogrammed canvas and leather shoulder bag is a great example of the way the line is reinvigorating their preppy chic aesthetic. This navy and grey logo pattern is so iconic that it's [...]
  3. Jimmy Choo Parker Handbag | Olive Retro Minimalist Shoulder Bag - 2011-09-12 22:05:59-04
    When it comes to Jimmy Choo, you either get loud and proud or refined elegance. While bags that show its more flamboyant side haven't always been to my taste, I think there's a place in my wardrobe for the Parker. There's an air of seventies cool about this olive green purse, yet it doesn't appear like [...]
  4. SOURCED's New Recycled Truck Tarp Messengers | Eco-Friendly Upcycled Tarpaulin Bags - 2011-09-12 23:16:45-04
    British brand SOURCED has created a new collection of messenger bags made from recycled truck tarpaulins. The eco-friendly accessories capitalize on the color and natural durability of its materials while helping the planet. Each bag is handmade using a single tarp, and the unique variations and patterns on each one ensures every SOURCED messenger purse is [...]
  5. Yves Saint Laurent Roady Leather And Metallic Shoulder Bag | Cool Rock Inspired Chocolate Hobo - 2011-09-12 23:24:05-04
    Yves Saint Laurent is doing amazing things lately. Their designs teeter on the edge of edginess, but veer towards the classy and classic. This Roady hobo is exactly what I'm talking about. Who can resist this material? Really, though, it's the very definition of sumptuous, but it's also really rock-n-roll, which makes it basically perfect in [...]
  6. JJ Winters Mini Fringe Cross-Body Bag | Small Taupe Suede Purse - 2011-09-12 23:56:28-04
    JJ Winters reminds us that sometimes you can have too much of a good thing with this Mini Fringe cross-body bag. I don't mind a little fringing in moderation, but this is overkill. Thank goodness this is a mini bag. Can you imagine how much fringing JJ Winters could have used on a larger canvas? Already [...]
  7. Joe's Jeans Sabrina Satchel | Large Pink Glazed Leather Handbag - 2011-09-13 02:04:52-04
    It takes a certain girl to pull off pink. And if you're that girl, I'm sure this Sabrina Satchel from Joe's Jeans will be right up your alley. To be fair, this isn't an over the top girly girl purse. Its pink color is bright but rich rather than sugary. The satchel's design is clean, free [...]
  8. Boston Children's Museum Celebrates Reusable Shoppers | Eco-Conscious In the Bag Exhibition Opens Thursday - 2011-09-13 21:34:23-04
    A new exhibition at Boston Children's Museum charts the growth of the reusable bag industry and celebrates the diverse range of reusable shoppers on the market. The display, called In the Bag: The Art and Politics of the Reusable Bag Movement, opens on Thursday. One of the most interesting parts of the exhibition is a celebration [...]
  9. Judith Leiber Cut-Corner Minaudiere | Beautiful Crystal Decorated Box Clutch - 2011-09-13 22:59:22-04
    Literal rather than metaphorical corners have been cut in this stylish Cut-Corner Minaudiere from Judith Leiber. It gets its name not from shoddy craftsmanship but from its stylish angled corners. I really love the contemporary quirk they bring to what is otherwise a very traditional Judith Leiber minaudiere. Traditional never means staid in the case of [...]
  10. Nadia Minkoff Designs for Tourvest | Exclusive In-Flight Travel Accessories - 2011-09-14 00:58:19-04
    British accessories designer Nadia Minkoff has designed two new travel accessories for duty free retailer Tourvest, to be sold exclusively on the international flights of its airline partners. Kenya Airways is selling Minkoff's new travel wallet. The purse's black mock crocodile leatherette and simple styling should appeal to guys and girls on vacation. Its practical design [...]
  11. Juicy Couture Live for Love Canvas Tote | Velour Lined Cantelope Slogan Handbag - 2011-09-14 01:51:36-04
    Juicy Couture thankfully keeps the velour on the inside for this fun Live for Love Canvas Tote. Perhaps I should stop expecting Juicy Couture to create frothy velour monstrosities, as we've been pleasantly surprised by many of the label's creations over the last year. This Live for Love Canvas Tote hardly pushes the fashion envelope, but [...]
  12. Kara Ross Mia Clutch | Versatile Purple Eelskin & Stingray Purse - 2011-09-14 02:07:46-04
    Kara Ross serves up a clutch that will look just as sleek during the day as it will at night with this Mia purse. The sleek eelskin body and classic design are the keys to the Mia's versatility. Strips of the exotic skin create subtle vertical lines on this simply shaped purse. The unusually cut corners [...]
  13. Alchemy Goods Turns Tire Tubes Into Accessories | Durable Upcycled Handbags - 2011-09-14 03:49:35-04
    Inspired by the way medieval alchemists turned lead to gold, the modern eco-warriors at Alchemy Goods transform trash into accessories to treasure. The label's bags are made from blown-out inner tire tubes, unused seatbelts, and old advertising banners. A small number in the upper right corner tells you what percentage of the accessory is crafted from [...]
  14. Kate Spade Seersucker Treesh Satchel | Patent Leather Pink & Cream Striped Purse - 2011-09-14 04:52:06-04
    Kate Spade seems to have been inspired by sweet hard candy when she created this fun Seersucker Treesh satchel. It's very simple, but I love the playfulness of the flamingo pink and cream stripes. These adorable stripes are continued on the rolled dual straps to create a look that's pretty as a picture. I'm in two [...]
  15. Louis Vuitton Appoints Danone Executive | Jodi Constans Replacing Yves Carcelle - 2011-09-14 21:09:46-04
    Yves Carcelle, the longtime chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton, is standing down. He will be replaced by Jodi Constans, a managing director of French yogurt firm Danone. It seems like a strange transition moving from the world of dairy treats to fashion, but the 47-year-old senior executive won't be thrown in the deep end. He'll [...]
  16. Kathrine Baumann Rosebud Minaudiere | Red Crystal Covered Flower with Tassel - 2011-09-15 01:15:19-04
    As a woman I'm predisposed to loving flowers, but I also find the real blooms a bit disappointing. One moment they're looking splendid and the next they're withering away. So perhaps a Rosebud purse from Kathrine Baumann is the perfect solution. I'm going to forget about the price tag and just dream for a while. The [...]
  17. Kathy Van Zeeland Line Drive Hobo | Green Synthetic Studded Belt Handbag - 2011-09-15 02:40:31-04
    Kathy Van Zeeland delivers a hobo that's a little less flashy than her average with this Line Drive bag. Its moniker is pretty confusing, as this hobo doesn't seem to have anything to do with baseball. It does have many of the hallmarks of a Kathy Van Zeeland accessory though, including bold studs, a belted accent, [...]
  18. Campari & Bric's Anniversary Accessories | Munari Art Patterned Totes & Travel Bags - 2011-09-15 03:46:31-04
    Campari has teamed up with accessories label Bric's for a new limited edition range of suitcases and handbags. The colorful fashion goods were created to mark the 150th anniversary of the alcoholic aperitif. This is the alcoholic company's first foray into the world of fashion accessories, and looking at the results I'm hoping it won't be [...]
  19. Kavu Himuka Shoulder Bag | Pink Bubble Pattern Cotton Handbag - 2011-09-15 04:22:01-04
    Kavu's back doing what it does best with this Himuka Bag. The label is nothing if not consistent. Its accessories are far from the flashiest on the market but they're always affordable and designed with practicality in mind. The Himuka is no exception, with its adjustable rope strap and large side pockets. If I'm going to [...]
  20. Calfskin Price Soars | Luxury Leather Costs Increase Handbag Prices - 2011-09-15 23:44:37-04
    If you've been griping about the high cost of luxury leather handbags, you're not alone. The fashion houses are also complaining as the price of calfskin soars. The price of the prized leather increased by 43% last year, and in the first six months of this year it's already risen another 21%. Apparently these high prices [...]
  21. KC Malhan Leopard Clutch | Framed Beaded Animal Print Purse - 2011-09-16 01:05:17-04
    KC Malhan gives leopard print another try with this Leopard Clutch. We first saw KC Malhan experimenting with the animal print with her sequined flap clutch. It was a fun purse, but all those sequins made it very flashy. This Leopard Clutch is like that original purse's more sedate sister, with beads adding glamour without the [...]
  22. Kenneth Cole New York Easy Piecey Satchel | Bronze Leather Patchwork Purse - 2011-09-16 02:43:23-04
    Kenneth Cole delivers a fun take on patchwork with this Easy Piecey Satchel. It looks almost as if Kenneth Cole took pieces of bronze metal sheeting and nailed them to this purse. I'm not ordinarily a fan of metallic leathers, but the color does so much for the illusion that I can't complain. The finish is [...]
  23. Hermes Family Shareholders to Form Holding Company | New Business Measures to Protect Fashion House - 2011-09-16 03:31:43-04
    The Hermes International family shareholders are protecting their investment by forming a new holding company. The formation of this new collective will effectively thwart any takeover bid by LVMH, which currently holds a 21.4% stake in the fashion house. A French court approved the family shareholders move. They currently own more than 71% of the company, [...]
  24. Kenneth Jay Lane Cleopatra Clutch | Patent Black Leather Snake Purse - 2011-09-16 04:32:21-04
    Kenneth Jay Lane gives a modern interpretation of Egyptian style with this Cleopatra clutch. Honestly, I'm not sure I can imagine the legendary Egyptian queen carrying this purse in her hand. I'm sure any accessory of hers would be dripping in jewels and have a much richer appearance. Despite being made of real leather, this clutch [...]
  25. Sachi Releases Wine Totes | New Insulated Vinto Bags - 2011-09-16 05:03:19-04
    We've always counted on Sachi Bags for stylish designer lunch bags. Now the label is catering for wine lovers with its new Sachi Vinto insulated wine totes. There are two different varieties to choose from; the small two-bottle tote costs $23.99 while the larger three-bottle tote is a little more expensive at $26.99. Each variety is [...]
  26. Kensie Girl Babyface Grommet Crossbody | Retro White Pleather Handbag - 2011-09-16 06:22:26-04
    As a thirty-something I tend to look down my nose at many youth lines. They often seem too cutesy, and too desperate to meet the approval of budding young fashionistas. Standing high above the the try-hards is Kensie Girl, a fashion house that makes me long for my younger days. This Babyface Grommet Crossbody is [...]
  27. Kooba Billie Hobo | Zip Pocket Black Leather Handbag - 2011-09-17 02:37:03-04
    Kooba takes the hobo from the flower power era to the 21st century with the Billie. The modern fashion house seems to have beaten all the boho out of the style and replaced it with cool, contemporary details. Its shape is much more structured than a classic hobo, and the traditional crescent shape has been replaced [...]
  28. Classic Craftmanship from Artifact Bag Co. | Handmade Canvas & Leather Totes - 2011-09-17 03:39:31-04
    Omaha based designer Chris Hughes takes handbag manufacturing back to basics with his fashion label Artifact Bag Co. Hughes crafts every bag by hand using old-fashioned hand tools and the vintage industrial equipment he finds at estate sales, warehouse liquidations, and internet classifieds. Each one is made from superior American waxed canvas and leather. Hughes has [...]
  29. Kotur Jensen Clutch | Ostrich Feather Decorated Evening Purse - 2011-09-17 04:22:28-04
    In the past we've seen feathers adding a touch of glamour to evening purses, so I was disappointed to see what Kotur had done with the plumes. Sadly this Jensen clutch seems more bird-brained than beautiful! The idea of using ostrich feathers for a clutch purse sounds luxurious. Their skins are some of the most prized [...]
  30. 5th Season Designs Upcycled Bags | Burlap Sacks & Used Clothing Become Green Purses - 2011-09-17 05:22:16-04
    Many of us regard waste as a necessary byproduct of living in the modern world. But Akiko Oguchi rejects that notion with her eco-conscious accessories line 5th Season Designs. Oguchi believes things don't need to become waste; they simply need to be used to their full potential. She does just that with her accessories line which [...]
  31. L.A.M.B. Torsten Cross-Body Bag | Black Ripstop Fabric Handbag - 2011-09-18 21:28:17-04
    Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. label has created a bag for busy girls with the Torsten. One look at this handbag and you know it means business. The ripstop fabric body is made to withstand punishment, and the large front pockets are ideal for stashing the items you need on hand. It also comes in black, which while [...]
  32. Flaunt Fashion Adds Handbags | Faith Nicole Designs New Purses - 2011-09-18 22:30:57-04
    Faith Nicole has finally added day bags to her Flaunt Fashion line. The trio of European inspired purses is the latest addition to the collection, which already features women's travel bags and accessories. There's the Venice hobo, the hardware heavy Milan, and the drawstring style London. Each purse is made from high quality leatherette, so we [...]
  33. La Regale Stone & Bead Flap Clutch | Bronze Tribal Evening Purse - 2011-09-19 00:30:40-04
    La Regale goes tribal for this earthy Stone & Bead Flap Clutch. This purse is much more rustic than most of La Regale's accessory offerings. Rather than high class embellishments like soft gathered satin and sparkling Swarovski crystals, La Regale opts for natural stones and beads. These tiny spheres are arranged in concentric circles which decorate [...]
  34. ChicoBag's Reusable Trick or Treat Tote Bag | Eco-Friendly Halloween Handbags - 2011-09-19 01:22:09-04
    September's not even done yet, but ChicoBag is looking ahead to Halloween with the release of its new Reusable Trick or Treat bags. The spooky printed accessories are made from tough woven polyester, so youngsters can happily use them year after year. That makes them a great choice for eco-conscious parents. The choice of material makes the [...]
  35. Lanvin Miss Sartorial Shoulder Bag | Retro Colorblocked Brown Leather Handbag - 2011-09-19 02:41:32-04
    Lanvin takes us back to the seventies with this retro inspired Miss Sartorial shoulder bag. It might sound undesirable to travel back to that decade, a time when the pairing of brown and khaki was celebrated, but it's actually right on trend. On a different purse I might find that colorblocked combo drab, but I think [...]
