Louis Vuitton Launched New Bag Spring 2017

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Bag Collection. Nicolas Ghesquière presented his edgy and sexy collection at the Place Vendôme, instead of the usual Fondation Louis Vuitton during the final day of Paris Fashion Week. The most coveted accessory in the runway was the iPhone case version of the popular Petite Malle bag. The phone cover includes a key ring and was presented in different materials like Monogram Canvas, Monogram Reverse and Crocodile leather. Louis Vuitton introduces a new color for the Damier pattern, which now comes in all Black and Tan. A variety of bags were seen in the runway with rope like handles. The top handle and flap bags with a lock closure has a striking resemblance to the Luna Bag. Tote bags in different shapes, as well as rectangular clutch bags were also featured in the collection.

When Nicolas Ghesquière sent his first look down the runway for Louis Vuitton’s spring 2016 collection on the final day of Paris Fashion Week, the designer presented a brand new phone case that could very well rival the next “It” bag of the season.

The accessory is a tech-friendly version of Ghesquière’s Petite Malle, an “It”-worthy handbag that the designer created for his debut runway show for the French fashion house back in 2014. It’s a modernized and miniature version of Louis Vuitton’s signature travel trunks.

The day before the show, Ghesquière gave his followers on Instagram a low-key sneak peek of the new accessory — emblazoned with a classic LV-logo motif and iconic hardware details. On the runway, there were plenty of reiterations, like gold and silver metallics, checkerboard patterns, as well as red and nude-colored crocodile leather. With so many options at the ready, we have a feeling Ghesquière is banking on the success of these cases for next season.

We reached out to the Louis Vuitton team for additional information and will update this post as we learn more. Though the brand’s current offerings of phone cases go for between $295 and $445, we have a feeling these new styles will ring in at a much higher price; prices for the Petite Malle bag usually start at $5,500.

Salvatore Ferragamo Quilted Flap Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Salvatore-Ferragamo-Quilted-Shoulder-Bag

Good news! Chanel is not the only brand that knows how to design quilted bags. And we all know how much the price increases hurts and whenever that happens, it breaks our hearts.
The charming design of Salvatore Ferragamo does make us smile; they are like the ‘sun shine’ after storm, the angels in the sky, last time we featured the ‘Gelly Shoulder Bag’, but we have to admit that it was not cheap, gorgeous but not inexpensive.
However, we want to introduce to you the newest edition from this brand, it’s called the Salvatore Ferragamo Quilted Flap Bag – a straightforward name.
First, if you love all-things quilted, then ‘Hey! Welcome to the Club’. Then what you must know is that the Ferragamo Quilted Flap is a mini shoulder bag. It comes with a long metal chain in golden hardware. And belief me, Quilted + Golden hardware is glamorous.
Crafted from calfskin, a leather that is not only durable but also smooth. For those who are clumsy and something abusive, this is the perfect pick. It also features the iconic Salvatore Ferragamo bow on the front, and it serves as a snap closure.

Measuring 11 x 16 x 6 (H x W x D) cm

Categories:Other Brands

Kate-Spade-Wicker-Heehive-Bag

After Kate Spade created the super-cute Bee Bag, it needed some place to stay. So the creative fashion house quickly designed the Wicker Beehive and signature it with ‘Oh Honey’.

READ: Kate spade Wicker Bee Bag

The Kate Spade Wicker Beehive Bag is the fashion thing you need for this season – it’s small, light weighed, ‘unique’ and it reminds me of the Winnie the Pooh story.

Although it’s too tiny to be your favorite beach bag, the size is ideal for other occasions. Think of the shopping days when you need a mini bag to store your personal essentials, think of the little white dress that marries this bag like bees and honey.

Crafted from natural seagrass with smooth leather trim, refined with 14 karat gold plated hardware, this clutch bag opens with a frame closure. The center is featured with a dividing zip pocket and there is a ‘Kate Spade New York’ charm attached, can you find it?

And one more thing, the bees embellished on the Beehive Bag is adorned with jewel-like stones. It’s made with a woven-straw wristlet. Measuring 8’ x 7.6’ x 7.6’ (H x W x D) inches, priced at 405 euro via Kate Spade store.

PurseForum Roundup – April 15

Categories:Other Brands

We are quickly working our way through April, and it’s time for another edition of the Roundup. This week, we made some quick stops in the Playground, The Glass Slipper and so much more. Thank you for making us one of of your Friday stops, and welcome!

Christian-Dior-Miss-Dior-Shoulder-Bag

Well, hello, gorgeous! This showstopping Miss Dior from sparkletastic topped the charts in Dior this week, and sparkletastic’s photographs of the glorious blue color will brighten your day, guaranteed.

Dior-Diorever-Tote-Unboxing

Our members are loving the Diorever, and we found another one this week, this time from forgetmenot301, who made a timeless selection with this beautiful beige color. Read up for the scoop on the secret compartment, a clever design tidbit that makes the Diorever even more special.

Hermes-Constance-Elan-Bag-and-Scarf

This gorgeous bag comes to us from Hermès and sissy milano’s Sunday Reveal. Reveals are always fabulous in Hermès, and that is of course an understatement. The 2016 fall scarf collection is one of the hottest topics in this subform, and you will find plenty of photographs and discussion right here.

Hermes-Constance-Bag

Pocketyee waited three years for this delicious bag, and didn’t waste any time showing her off when the call finally came. We also got to see the bag in action, and you can too: right here! 

Givenchy-Lace-Up-Shoes

Would you? Could you? Even if you are not sure if you would or could, isn’t it great to see these wearable works of art by Givenchy on Kyoki’s feet? We love this shot. There are many more stunning shoes in the What Shoes are You Wearing Today thread in the Glass Slipper. This is a very useful resource when you are in a shoe rut, like we apparently are.

Jason-Wu-Pumps

We do love a T-strap pump, though, and we are not alone. These Jason Wu beauties are from Divealicious, and we want them. We found them in the Post Your Newest Shoe Purchase thread, along with dozens more pairs of shoes that we adore. What is your newest shoe purchase? Now you know where to post your answer.

Bag-Shaming

Uh Oh. The Bag Shaming thread is back. In Bottega Veneta, our members confess to bag abuse, sometime with help from their bags. Last year, diane278’s bag busted her for what is clearly bag mistreatment, no matter the brand! Also in BV, fans of the brand are sharing their honest (and mixed) reviews of the new Beverly bag in this thread. We love honesty! (And we honestly love diane278’s new parachute bag, too.)

Bottega-Veneta-Turquoise-Tote

How about this sweet Monaco in Canard for a nice pop of color this spring? Bottega consistently comes up with some of the most brilliant and beautiful colors in the business, and this bag tells that story perfectly. Congratulations to Tenkrat on a splendid first BV purchase.

Now, for something a little different: some quick and random stops around the PurseForum’s Playground, where we keep everything that isn’t bag-related.

Longchamp-Weekender

In Arts and Crafts, clever jadeaymanalac was inspired to get her DIY on by a bejeweled Prada bag, and she did a great job of recreating the concept. Her successful execution of that bag led to this cute Longchamp! If you are crafty, stop by Arts and Crafts–we have found quite a few surprises there, maybe you will, too.

Dog-Grooming-Before-and-After

We have posted before and after pictures of bags that have spent time at the spa, but none have been as adorable as Swedengirl’s perfectly coiffed pooch. Those ears! We love Animalicious, PurseForum’s pet central.

Fruit-Tart

Speaking of cake: you know how much we love The Kitchen, and this spring our members seem to have been eating particularly well. This lovely dessert is from Cyanide Rose, and you will find plenty more to get your appetite going in the I Ate This thread.

Flower

In Home and Garden, Mimmy’s garden is going strong. Other members are seeing their gardens waking up after a long winter. How is your garden going? Whether it’s a potted plant in your apartment, or a grand planted space outdoors, we would love to see what’s popping up in your green space.

That’s it for this week. We hope you have a happy weekend and week ahead. (Oh, and if you would like to share your happiness, we have a thread for that: What Makes You Happy Today?) Thank you for stopping by, we love rounding up some of what is happening on the PurseForum, and we’re glad you made the time to join us! See you next week!

$298,000 Hermès Birkin Shatters World Record for Most Expensive Handbag Sale

Categories:Other Brands

It was just last June that we reported to you about a new high in handbag resale prices: Christie’s Hong Kong had just sold a pink crocodile Hermès Birkin for a record high of $221,000. That record didn’t even make its first anniversary; earlier this week, Privé Porter announced it had broken that record with a $298,000 Birkin of its own, and it’s one that will look familiar to PurseBlog readers.

Privé Porter is a resale business that focuses on unused (but previously owned) Birkins and operates primarily via Instagram, where it’s able to reach a worldwide audience of shoppers looking to add rare handbags to their collections. In November, Privé Porter hosted a pop-up Birkin yacht at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and Megs and Vlad were among the attendees who got to peruse the collectible Birkins. The new record-breaker was among the bags in the selection, and it appears in our photos of the event, including the one above.

The bag is a 35cm Birkin in Braise shiny Porosus crocodile, finished with 18-karat white gold encrusted with pavé diamonds, at a total weight of more than ten carats. It was manufactured in 2008 and sold to a US buyer via the brand’s New York City flagship on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Privé Porter acquired the unused bag from the original owner in 2015, and it was purchased from the company by a Los Angeles-based buyer who chose to remain anonymous. The Christie’s bag can still technically claim the title of the most expensive handbag sold at auction; this Birkin sold at a named price with no bidding.

We spoke to Privé Porter co-found and Managing Director Jeffrey Berk, who had this to say of the bag and its sourcing process: “Even with the sheer volume of Birkins we’re offered daily, we are very careful about the bags we actually buy. Is the color special? When was it produced? How rare is it? But we knew that when we had the opportunity to acquire this Braise Croc, we’d stumbled upon one of the special Birkins, the way a horse trainer may see a newborn and know that’s a Triple Crown winner someday. We hoped to sell it to someone who appreciated the bag as much as we do, and from what we understand, the buyer is a very sophisticated collector who genuinely understands how special and rare this bag is. Which is reflected in their willingness to pay the record price.”

Hermès reds and pinks are particularly sought-after shades for collectors; a Rouge H (which is a bit deeper than braise) Birkin set a sales record of over $203,000 back in 2011 via Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, and the most recent record holder from Christie’s in Hong Kong was bright pink. Recently, handbag resellers have been trying to convince the buying public that Birkins are a better investment than stocks or gold bars, and if you’ve got a red or pink croc Birkin at the ready, that just might be true.
