Proenza Schouler rolls out its subtle Book Bag online

Some people just don’t dig a recognizable bag, and that’s fine; most brands produce lots of bags that don’t make a big enough splash to draw huge amounts of attention from passers by, so flying under the radar and still maintaining a high standard for your bag collection is always totally possible. It’s been hard lately if you’re a Proenza Schouler fan, though. All of the brand’s PS1 styles, plus its PS11 shoulder bags and clutches,
Buy Cheap Valentino Replica Bags, are hugely recognizable,
Valentino Rockstud Shoes, despite the lack of actual logos or monograms. What are the It Bag-averse to do?

Proenza would like to answer that question with the Proenza Schouler Book Bag. Available only in the brand’s online shop, the bag features…a buckle! A buckle that looks like all the buckles you’ve seen before, against a background of neutral leather. It’s a Proenza bag for people who don’t want 99% of people to know that they’re carrying Proenza.

I have the luck of being in a job that not only allows me to buy and carry expensive,
Red Valentino Shoes, recognizable bags and accessories, but that downright encourages it. Not everyone has such a relaxed workplace, though,
Discount Valentino Handbags, particularly those who work in the sort of high-powered corporate, legal or medical jobs that most often afford their workers the kinds of salaries necessary to buy luxury goods. For those occasions, this bag is perfect nondescript, totally professional, neutral, not obviously branded. It’s an everyday bag for a woman whose job requires her to wear hosiery if she chooses to wear a skirt, and there’s more of those ladies out there than you’d think. Buy through Proenza Schouler for $1550.

Rachel Zoe is handbags available for pre-order at NeimanMarcus.com

Usually when a Bravolebrity starts a handbag or clothing line of some sort, everyone rolls their eyes and frets about the state of the creative arts. But superstylist Rachel Zoe isn’t your average reality TV star; whether you like her personal aesthetic or not, you have to admit that she’s beyond brilliant at what she does. So when rumblings were first heard six months ago that Zoe would be releasing her own line of clothing, shoes and accessories,
Valentino Handbags for Women, most people reserved judgment until the line had actually surfaced. The verdict? Not bad, Ms. Zoe. Not bad at all. Not revolutionary, but very serviceable.

Now that the pre-orders for the line are available exclusively through NeimanMarcus.com, we can finally get a close look at the bags and handle on the type of prices Zoe hopes to command. As it turns out, the bags are neutral and functional,
Cheap Valentino Women’s flats, and the prices fit right in to the contemporary market. We have purchase information and bigger pictures of our favorites after the jump, or you can shop the entire collection via Neiman Marcus.

Rebecca Minkoff expands into luggage

It warms the cockles of my cold little blogger heart to see contemporary brands expanding into luggage in creative ways. First came the Lulu Guinness suitcases covered with her signature molded lips,
Cheap Valentino Women’s High Heels, and now we have the Rebecca Minkoff Skull Suitcase. I’d like one of each,
Valentino Shoes Outlet, please.

I’m not much of a crafty girl, but the trompe l’oeil knitted look of the pattern (indeed, other bags in this collection are actually made out of a woven material) provides just enough kitsch to balance out the tough look of a skull and crossbones. Instead of weaving, the bag is made of durable coated canvas that might actually survive a trip through the airport ringer.

Even thinking about the airport makes me cringe. People claim that air travel used to be a glamourous journey, but now,
Valentino Handbags for Women, it’s little more than a human cattle-call where you might get groped. At least with a cute carry-on, the entire process can be a little more fashionable, if not any more pleasant. Also, I doubt anyone at baggage claim would mess with the girl pulling skull luggage off of the conveyor belt. Buy through ShopBop for $595.

RHOC: "I have bigger lips than you? What kind of statement is that?"

Ladies and gents, by the time you read this, I’ll be up in the air somewhere over the East Coast, headed to New York City with two suitcases that weigh as much as I do. (Combined, not individually. Let’s be real here.) And because I’m a procrastinator of massive proportions and spent most of yesterday evening frantically stuffing random articles of clothing into black Samsonite, we’re going to do things a little differently this week.

Last night’s episode wasn’t even particularly interesting and I spent most of it silently praying that someone would get flung off of the mechanical bull in particularly spectacular fashion, but since that didn’t happen, I’ve chosen a few topic of conversations that we can discuss. Or if there’s something else that’s on your mind about the show, we can talk about that as well. Let’s get things started…

Alexis totally blew up all of her friends’ spots last night. She drunkenly claimed that eight out of her ten girlfriends were cheating on their spouses, and as was pointed out afterward on Watch What Happens Live, that means that all of her girlfriends now have to nervously try and convince their husbands that they’re one of the two who isn’t. Not to mention that Alexis has lots of thoughts about gay marriage even though she thought Jesus would be ok with her getting divorced and then marrying a vapid, slobbering man-child for his fake fortune.

I hate Jeana Keough. I used to like her. I used to even feel sorry for her, because her husband seemed like such a giant piece of crap. But last night, when she was sitting there telling us all that we should look the other way when a man throws things at his wife’s head,
Red Valentino Shoes Red Valentino, any residual soft spot I might have had for her vanished. Rarely have I heard such a bass-ackwards series of thoughts come out of the mouth of a Real Housewife, and that’s saying something. Just because she has a low enough opinion of herself to stay with an abusive man for decades doesn’t mean she can bully women who are trying to do something about their own situations.

Vicki’s isn’t the only marriage in trouble. Alexis’ admission that she is in recovery from an eating disorder was perhaps not a shocker for anyone who’s familiar with massive insecurity and how it manifests itself, but the enthusiasm with which she talked about being on a trip without her husband and having girl time might have been. Just a few episodes ago, this woman had a meltdown at a dinner party because her husband wasn’t there,
Cheap Valentino Women’s flats, and now, she’s feeling all giddy about it. She seems like a person who knows she’s about to go through a breakup: Devastated one minute, hopeful the next.

I kinda sorta like Eddie. I know that not everyone agrees with me and that we can only tell so much from what we see on this show, but Eddie genuinely seems like a quasi-decent human being. Or maybe he’s just basking in the reflected glow of the rest of the cast’s collective awfulness, I’m not sure. Either way,
Red Valentino Shoes, I bet he’s a nice guy.

Does anyone know if Fernanda is a legit Housewife or not? Serious question, I have no idea.

Your first look at the Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 ad campaign

It’s that time of year again: time for ad campaigns! Twice a year, brands roll out images meant to sell their ideas of their collections to the public, and because handbags and accessories are so critically important to the financial wellbeing of most designers, they often figure prominently in the ads. That,
Cheap Valentino Women’s flats, of course,
Cheap Valentino Shoes Sale, is relevant to our interests.

Perhaps the best illustration of that phenomenon is Louis Vuitton, whose ads are often so chock full of bags, sunglasses, scarves and other accessories that it’s hard to get a solid look at the clothes. That’s not as much the case in this first image from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 ad campaign, but you do get a healthy dose of leopard print front and center.

Like all of Vuitton’s recent seasonal advertising, the ads mirror the mood of the Fall 2012 runway show perfectly. (Also like all of Vuitton’s recent ads: this campaign was lensed by Steven Meisel.) We’ve been transported inside of the train that graced the show’s runway, and all of the ladies are decked out in their traveling best, from enormous hats to equally enormous leopard bags. It’s a bit expected,
Valentino Rockstud Shoes, but certainly not ineffective. What do you think?

The Paparazzi Finally Caught Up With Anna Wintour and More Excellent Celebrity Handbags

This is not one of those celeb bag roundups where everyone looks totally relatable and down-to-earth, and half the celebs we feature are just grabbing some fro-yo in West Hollywood. This is one of those celeb bag round-ups where (almost) everyone brought their A-game,
Valentino Sneakers Womens Sale, right along with their A-game handbags. They are doing press interviews, catching private jets, walking red carpets or just being Rihanna. Their lives just might be a little more glamorous than ours, but that’s okay, because it’s important to have aspirations. We can’t all be Tom Ford carrying a Tom Ford bag to the airport, can we?

8 Anna Wintour

Victoria Beckham Liberty Tote

$1,650 via Net-a-Porter

Here’s a rare paparazzi shot of Anna Wintour, blitzing through JFK airport on her way back from the Oscars with an eye-catching Victoria Beckham tote. Anna’s public appearances are usually limited to only the most high-profile of fashion events; she’s rarely caught by paps anywhere other than a fashion show or party, but it’s even more rare to spot her carrying a handbag and not wearing her trademark shades. I’m a little worried someone’s going to lose their job over this.

8 Christie Brinkley

Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag

$3,490 via Net-a-Porter

Here’s Christie Brinkley, leaving The View studios with a Saint Laurent Sac de Jour. Christie is making the press rounds to promote her new skincare line, though I just assumed she was drumming up a little promo for the Parks & Rec series finale. That tells you where my priorities are.

8 Gabrielle Union

Chanel Classic Flap Bag

The View studios were just a revolving door of good bags last week. Here’s Gabrielle Union, carrying a beautiful black Chanel Classic Flap Bag on her way in. Gabrielle is doing a little promo for the new season of her BET series Being Mary Jane.

8 Kim Kardashian

Hermès Grizzly Suede Birkin

Here’s Kim at LAX with her Hermès Grizzly Suede Birkin. I could have sworn Kim sold this bag via Heritage Auctions a couple years ago, but no. Apparently she had two, and she sold the larger version. That seems apropos.

8 Jada Pinkett Smith

Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit Clutch

Jada Pinkett Smith recently walked the red carpet at the premiere of her hubby’s new flick Focus, carrying a classic Roger Vivier clutch. This particular RV style is a longtime red carpet fave. BTW, if you’re not watching Jada on Gotham, you’ve made a grave mistake.

8 Rihanna

Ralph Lauren Embroidered Ricky Bag

Shop via Ralph Lauren

While Rihanna has always mixed preppier elements into her personal style, an embroidered Ralph Lauren Ricky with an eagle on it seems to take the prep quotient to a whole new level. However, when you look at the actual embroidery up close,
Red Valentino Shoes, the eagle motif is a little edgier than you’d expect from RL. The brand says the embroidery is inspired by "traditional flight jacket artwork;" it seems just slightly left of what I was expecting, but it makes way more sense for Rihanna.

8 Sofia Vergara

Chanel Grand Shopping Tote

Ladies, Sofia Vergara is proof positive that you can have it all: millions of dollars in the bank, massive personal success, Chanel bags, a line of clothing AND home goods at K-mart, and an equally famous boyfriend who is also a specimen of physical perfection. (Oh, and Sofia even has a kid! He’s basically a grown man now, but it still counts,
Cheap Valentino Shoes Sale, right?) Here she is with fiancé Joe Manganiello at LAX.

8 Tom Ford

Tom Ford Duffel

Shop via Neiman Marcus

Here’s Tom Ford, arriving at LAX with what we have to assume is a bag of his own design, although we can’t find one with similar handle attachments for sale online. We can only conclude that this Tom Ford bag is something that’s currently in development for a future season. Or maybe Tom Ford made a Tom Ford-exclusive Tom Ford handbag.

Time to be shocked: Versace gets it right

Despite any fun that I might have had at Versace’s expense in the past, I really,
Cheap Valentino Shoes Sale, really want the brand to get through its growing pains and come out the other side making beautiful accessories. Few labels have the kind of global name recognition that Versace enjoys, and it would make the accessories market as a whole much richer for Versace to find its voice and become a real player in the handbag game. If it keeps making bags like the Versace Hilary Satchel, there’s hope for the brand yet.

Instead of the over-the-top, mismatched styling that we’ve seen from the brand in the past, this bag’s design has been edited down to just the parts necessary to keep some of the Versace attitude. Most of that comes by way of the round hardware motif that dots the front of the bag, but it doesn’t distract at all from the beautifully textured and glazed purple leather underneath. Instead of having multiple colors, patterns and types of hardware compete with each other, this bag’s elements all work work together.

It’s not often that I see a Versace bag and think, wow,
Valentino Sneakers Womens Sale, I would totally be able to work that in to my wardrobe, but that’s exactly the reaction I had to this bag. Medium-to-dark purple is a rich color that looks great against black and grey for winter, and it provides a bit of color to an outfit without looking season-inappropriate during colder weather. The abundance of hardware is typical of the Versace aesthetic, but in this iteration it doesn’t take away from the beauty of the leather or compete with the overall design. It fits.

The bag also seems to be at least reasonably functional. I wish it was a tad deeper, but as it is the design should still offer plenty of interior room for your everyday stuff without getting too bulky or heavy. The only problem, of course,
Buy Cheap Valentino Replica Bags, is the price. If Versace wants to spark renewed interest from skeptical bag buyers, they need to consider a significantly different price point. There’s no way that this bag costs over a thousand dollars more to manufacture or market than your average Chloé bag, and most buyers know it. Buy through Nordstrom for $3250.

Proenza Schouler introduces a tiny PS11 for Pre-Fall 2013

Proenza Schouler is a brand that’s followed a very lucrative handbag pattern, road-tested by innumerable other handbag brands in the past: fine a few basic bags that people love and then capitalize on their success for seasons to come by remaking them in different sizes, proportions and structures. Proenza’s primary example of this strategy is the PS1, of course it comes in every version imaginable,
Discount Valentino Handbags, from a billfold to a weekender. The PS11, Proenza’s follow up to the company’s ever-popular handbag debut, hasn’t appeared in quite as many versions, but that seems to be changing. The one you see above is literally called the Proenza Schouler Tiny PS11 Crossbody.

First, let’s look at how this bag sizes up, compared to its predecessors. The Tiny PS11 is 7.5 inches across, compared to 8.75 for the Clutch, 9.5 for the Mini and 10.75 for the Classic. The clutch, although bigger, costs $200 less, but does not come with any shoulder strap to speak of. The next most comparable version, the Mini, costs $250 more for two additional inches of space. This version of the bag, though,
Valentino Shoes Replica, has a different proportion than the rest more squarish than rectangular, with a simplified front closure. These itty-bitty PS11s also feature a new hardware that Proenza’s debuting for Pre-Fall 2013, which has the bag’s signature inverted studs enameled over with either a tonal color or black. Do you dig this new bag?

Man Bag Monday: Belstaff Cotton Canvas Messenger Bag

Belstaff Cotton Canvas Messanger Bag,
Salvatore Ferragamo Shoes Sale, $395 via Net-a-Porter

Oh Man Bag Monday, we have left your category so under-loved the past few weeks. I promise it was not purposeful, it just…happened. But we are back and giving the men who read PurseBlog and the ladies who shop for their men who don’t read PurseBlog our suggestion for a bag this Monday. Thus far many of the bags we have covered are much pricier than what many men would ever consider spending on their bags. Today I found a very fashionable but rugged and affordable look in the Belstaff Cotton-Canvas Messenger Bag.

This bag gives the right look without looking like you are trying too hard. It is something I can imagine being suitable even for the men who refuse to carry a man bag. The khaki cotton canvas with worn brown leather trim gives a manly appearance while being completely functional with the two front pockets, interior pocket,
Cheap Stone Island Clothing Sale for Men, and fold over flap closure. The Belstaff emblem reminds me of a pilot, which again scores some super cool points.

I know every dude out there won’t carry a bag, but many dudes need to and finding a carryall that works for them and their style is most important. If you are or know the casual laid-back guy who would never want a leather bag, consider this option for Belstaff for $395 via Mr. Porter.
