  1. Aspinal of London Releases Jubilee Clutch | Limited Edition Queen Box Purse - 2012-05-28 19:47:00-04
    Patriotic British label Aspinal of London is celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with the release of this contemporary, limited edition Jubilee box clutch. I can't imagine aging Queen Elizabeth II carrying this purse. It's much more modern than the Launer London bags she typically favors. But its Andy Warhol style pop art silhouettes should strike a [...]
  2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Memphis Cross-Body Bag | Retro Purple & Green Colorblocked Purse - 2012-05-28 21:56:13-04
    Colorblocked bags are flooding the market, but we can always trust Marc Jacobs to create one which stands above the pack. This Memphis bag from his Marc by Marc Jacobs line is a great way to indulge in the trend for less. Its purple and lime color scheme isn't for the faint hearted, but I love [...]
  3. Kelly Brook Designs New Look Fashion Line | Fifties Style Apparel & Accessories for Curvy Girls - 2012-05-29 00:19:56-04
    Busty British model Kelly Brook has created a fashion line for UK retail chain New Look. The beauty's line, which features apparel and accessories, was designed with other curvy women in mind. "There is so much focus on size zero models that I wanted to design a collection for real women with real budgets and a [...]
  4. Maison Martin Margiela Glossed Leather Clutch | Bordeaux Colored Half Moon Purse - 2012-05-29 01:31:38-04
    Earlier this year, Maison Martin Margiela impressed us with the versatility of the Half Moon Clutch from its Line 11 collection. Now with this Glossed Leather Clutch Maison Martin Margiela has turned the shape on its head, literally, for after five wear. The weathered casual finish of the Half Moon was perfect for daytime wear, but [...]
  5. Mellow World Emily Cross-Body Bag | Zip Decorated Red Leatherette Purse - 2012-05-29 02:39:54-04
    Mellow World offers contemporary style for less with this playful Emily Cross-Body Bag. Vertical zips help this classic flap-over cross-body stand out from the crowd. They make the Emily feel quite modern, and much edgier than her feminine name might suggest. Colored trim helps the bag's accents and clean lines pop to varying degrees. Personally I [...]
  6. Reusable Shoppers Breed Bacteria | Scary Study on Health Risk of Green Bags - 2012-05-29 21:03:41-04
    We're all encouraged to carry reusable totes to the grocery store, but unless you're cleaning yours regularly the practice might turn you a sickly shade of green! Researchers at the University of Arizona recently tested 84 resuable shoppers for bacteria and other nasties. They found that more than half of the bags were infected with dangerous [...]
  7. Mary Frances Bombshell Wristlet | Striking Beaded Evening Purse - 2012-05-30 00:20:10-04
    If you've always appreciated Mary Frances' artistry but struggled with her propensity for kitsch, this Bombshell wristlet may be the bag for you. There's still some level of novelty to this ostentatious purse, but it's much subtler than the accessories which look like mai tais and telephones. Its eye-catching beads create an alluring, Middle Eastern inspired [...]
  8. New Burberry Autumn/Winter 2012 Advertisement | Gabriella Wilde & Roo Panes Star in Commercial - 2012-05-30 00:50:57-04
    Burberry has named Gabriella Wilde and Roo Panes as its new glamor couple. The gorgeous twosome replaces Cara Delevigne and Eddie Redmayne in the British company's autumn/winter 2012-2013 advertising campaign. Both beauties are destined to take off in the coming months. Panes' folky music was recently recorded under Burberry's own label, while Wilde was just cast [...]
  9. Marino Orlandi Briefcase | Italian Leather Cognac Office Bag - 2012-05-30 01:34:10-04
    Classic styling and Italian craftsmanship make this Marino Orlandi Briefcase a tempting proposition for any working girl. I'm completely smitten by the weathered qualities of that lush cognac colored leather. Its burnished tinges make it feel like much more than simply a brown leather bag. Its patina will also ensure it'll only look better as it [...]
  10. Marni Wingtip Pochette | Black Calfskin Purse with Tonal Detail - 2012-05-30 02:09:58-04
    From a distance this Marni purse looks like a fairly boring black clutch, but there's more to the Wingtip Pochette than meets the eye. It's only when you look closely that you notice the delicate wingtip detail running across the flap. This subtle accent helps add some necessary flair to this traditional black leather clutch. I can [...]
  11. Hermes Appoints New CEO | Axel Dumas Named Patrick Thomas' Successor - 2012-05-30 03:36:14-04
    Hermes has reiterated its commitment to family values by naming Axel Dumas, a sixth-generation member of the founding family, as its new chief executive. Dumas will share the chief executive officer responsibilities with long time holder of the position Patrick Thomas. Dumas began working for the family business in 2003 and he has quickly risen through [...]
  12. Matt & Nat Epea Tote | Expandable Black Vegan Leather Carryall Bag - 2012-05-30 04:15:47-04
    Matt & Nat combines style and smarts into a sustainable package with this Epea Tote. Like most of the bags from Matt & Nat's line, the Epea's crafted from a pebbled vegan leather which has the good looks of calfskin without the cruelty. Admittedly this material is a bit thinner and less luxurious than the skin [...]
  13. Tyler Shields Wants Forgiveness After Hermes Birkin Murder | Photographer Offers Donation to Family in Need - 2012-05-30 23:15:41-04
    Photographer Tyler Shields is looking to make amends after he destroyed a crocodile Hermes Birkin bag, reportedly worth $100, 000, with his main squeeze and muse Francesca Fisher-Eastwood. The snapper and Clint Eastwood's daughter received widespread condemnation earlier this week when they chainsawed the luxury bag in half before setting it alight. Shields says he takes [...]
  14. McKlein Ashburn Leather Laptop Case | Brown Calfskin Office Briefcase - 2012-05-31 00:30:46-04
    McKlein's created a briefcase for the stuffiest of offices with the Ashburn. This unisex design has all the hallmarks of a McKlein bag, with none of the playfulness. Frankly I miss the label's usual feminine hues. While the black, brown, and cognac options are perfect for serious workplaces, they won't satisfy anyone working in a more [...]
  15. Menbur Forlia Clutch | Pearl Gray Satin Pleated Jewel Purse - 2012-05-31 02:28:54-04
    Oversized jewels help punch up this pretty pleated Forlia purse from Menbur. Personally I think the jewels are a bit too big and chunky, but they might strike a chord with girls who shun traditional evening purses. They make the Forlia feel modern, despite its classic pleated base and frame design. Evening clutches are rarely functional. It's [...]
  16. Kim Kardashian's Designer Bags Stolen at Heathrow Airport | British Airways Blamed for Bag Theft - 2012-05-31 03:39:18-04
    She's probably got designer handbags to spare, but Kim Kardashian is still understandably incensed after a few went missing at Heathrow Airport. The reality TV starlet claims British Airways employees pilfered the luxury purses and a pair of sunglasses owned by her late father from her luggage. On arriving home from a promotional tour of London [...]
  17. Melie Bianco Brenda Bucket Bag | Intricate Slashed Leatherette Handbag with Studded Trim - 2012-05-31 04:48:37-04
    Melie Bianco has fun with fashion with this Brenda Bucket Bag. The label stops just shy over overdoing things here. There's an awful lot going, but the Brenda still seems strangely cohesive. I love the way the modern slashed panels work with the tightly woven piping that runs between them. The studs that run along the [...]
  18. France Launches Anti-Counterfeit Ads | Commercials Remind Tourists of Price of Imitation Designer Goods - 2012-05-31 05:09:26-04
    A new French public service campaign is reminding tourists to steer clear of counterfeits. The ads, which are the work of French luxury goods group Comite Colbert, inform readers that buying imitation goods in France carries a maximum penalty of three years in jail and a € 300,000 fine. The campaign's images were provided by leading [...]
  19. Michael Kors Gia Satchel | Sophisticated Croc Embossed Handbag - 2012-05-31 06:35:08-04
    Michael Kors offers a satchel that promises to stand the test of time with the Gia. The Gia manages to seem eternally stylish and right on trend. Its structured shape fits neatly amongst the retro styled accessories we're all seeing, but by choosing a classic brown hue Michael Kors ensures we'll carry it after the trend [...]

    Miquelrius' created a backpack for girls with flowers in their hair with this Peace & Love Bag. This modern backpack pays tribute to the swinging sixties with its peace sign decoration.

  22. Miu Miu Velvet Clutch | Red Ergonomic Evening Purse - 2012-06-01 04:29:25-04
    Lately I've been tiring of Miu Miu's over-embellished, overdone designs, so I'm thrilled to see the label paring things back with this Velvet Clutch. This purse reminds us of the beauty that comes with well-designed simplicity. Its unusual bean shape just begs us to hold it, especially as it's made from sumptuously soft velvet. Its rich [...]
  23. Bottletop Designs Limited Edition Handbags for (RED)RUSH | Recycled Ringpull Bags for HIV/AIDS Charity - 2012-06-01 05:04:32-04
    Luxury eco-conscious fashion label Bottletop has teamed up with HIV/AIDS charity (RED) to support this month's (RED)RUSH fundraising initiative.

  24. Mywalit Large Duffle Bag | Bright Green Leather Drawstring Carryall - 2012-06-01 06:06:26-04
    Add a pop of color to your summer wardrobe with this Large Duffle Bag. A bag made of such a lurid colored leather could never be called subtle, but its finish is a little more reserved than many Mywalit designs. Rather than a rainbow of color we get just a splash of contrast with the navy [...]
  25. Love Moschino Funny Round Handle Hobo | Unusual Brown Calfskin Handbag - 2012-06-02 02:40:39-04
    It's hardly hilarious, but there's a definite quirk about this Funny Round Handle Hobo from Love Moschino. Its name suggests that this hobo's handle is a novelty, but really it's just your average short curved handle, with a golden underside for strength. It's elegant, and no laughing matter. But the combination of the handle and the [...]
  26. Push Pull Cambodia's Authentic Ikat Handbags | Traditional Woven Accessory Collection - 2012-06-02 03:41:54-04
    Ikat prints are right on trend, with modern labels like Lucky Brand and Tylie Malibu all replicating this tribal look. But why just accept the imitators when you can enjoy genuine ikat? Push Pull Cambodia brings this traditional Asian woven finish to the masses. Push Pull Cambodia employs Khmer artisans to produce its authentic Ikat handbags. [...]
  27. Mulberry Hetty Clipper Soft Matte Doctor Bag | Black Pebbled Leather Carry-All - 2012-06-02 04:07:16-04
    Mulberry gives the classic doctor bag a sleek modern makeover with this Hetty Clipper Handbag. The Hetty Clipper's shape is a bit softer than a traditional doctor bag, with gentle, almost accidental pleating around its edges. Of course nothing on a Mulberry bag is truly an accident, but this illusion makes the Hetty Clipper feel relaxed [...]
  28. Red Flag Design Recycles Fabrics | Sustainable Sailcloth & Canvas Bags - 2012-06-02 05:21:59-04
    Canadian firm Red Flag Design turns old sailcloth into functional and fashionable handbags and other accessories. Vancouver natives Barnaby Killam and Stuart Sproule founded the firm in 2004. At that time they just a small shoebox studio and a swag of old sailcloths to work with. From these humble beginnings Red Flag Design grew to create [...]
  29. Nancy Gonzalez Croc & Linen Magazine Tote | Mosaic Cut-Out Gold Handbag - 2012-06-03 02:31:06-04
    Summery linen and exotic crocodile come together with style in this Magazine Tote from Nancy Gonzalez. The last time we saw Nancy Gonzalez adding linen to her favorite crocodile skin I was less than impressed. The fabrics didn't mesh nearly as well as they do here. The mosaic style cut-out design is inspired, as it allows [...]
  30. Louis Vuitton in Miniature | Vincent Bousserez Takes Whimsical Bag Photographs - 2012-06-03 21:41:41-04
    Photographer Vincent Bousserez has created a dreamlike world in miniature for a new artistic collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Through a series of photographs, Bousserez imagines what might happen at the Louis Vuitton Champs-Elysees store when doors close at the end of a day's trade. We see teeny tiny figures using the Louis Vuitton bags as their [...]
  31. Nicole Lee Lorelli Shopping Bag | Rustic Patchwork Laser Cut Handbag - 2012-06-03 23:04:29-04
    Nicole Lee brings us more haphazard design with her patchworked Lorelli Shopping Bag. The uninitiated might be surprised by the Lorelli's slapdash appearance, but we've come to expect such quirky, over embellishment from the designer. I haven't always embraced the creative vision, but there's something about the Lorelli that's gotten underneath my skin. Patchwork's always been [...]
  32. Tintamar Designs Easy Travel Vest Bag | Unusual Practical Convertible Tote - 2012-06-04 00:28:20-04
    Alexander Wang surprised us a couple of seasons ago when he released the Bianca bag, a handbag which doubled as a vest. Now French accessories label Tintamar has revisited the concept with its Easy Travel Vest Bag. The Easy Travel Vest Bag has a bit more mystery about it than the Bianca. Wang's creation always looked [...]
