The Many Bags of Kris Jenner

The Many Bags of Kris Jenner

Although not everyone loves the world’s most famous momager, we think you’ll all have to agree that Kris Jenner not only has a rather impressive collection of handbags, but she has a more finely tuned sense of style than the vast majority of celebrities. Kris knows what she likes and where to find it, and more often than not, that means Chanel in neutral colors, Valentino in prints and anything that looks extremely expensive in shades of black and ivory, with an occasional pop of red to liven things up.

Whether you’re a Kris fan or just a fan of looking at great bags, we think you’ll enjoy what’s happening below, even if it’s in spite of yourself.

Watch Out!

There are so many classic watches that I love…

…like the Première and the Hermès Médor. But, sometimes its fun to wear a different kind of classic, like the Swatch!

Are you a watch wearer or do you just rely on your cell phone to tell time?

Christophe Lemaire to Leave Hermès After Spring 2015 Show

Christophe Lemaire to Leave Hermès After Spring 2015 Show

In the world of big-name leather goods, shifts in strategy rarely come as a surprise. There are rumors and whispers of declining sales, or, alternately, talk of the designer becoming enough of a star in his own right that he or she doesn’t need the brand anymore. That’s why designer Christophe Lemaire’s exit from Hermès, announced yesterday and reported by Women’s Wear Daily, caught so many people off guard.

Lemaire replaced Jean Paul Gaultier as Hermès’ creative director in June 2010, and in that time, his collections have been extremely well-received, both by fashion critics and by the brand’s core group of handbag-obsessed customers. He managed to recalibrate the brand’s long-standing image in a carefully modern way, and in doing so, had performed the somewhat difficult trick of pleasing critics without alienating buyers who are heavily invested in the brand’s heritage and story.

In the process, Lemaire, who had come to the brand from Lacoste, had stayed largely in the shadows instead of presenting himself as an outsize personality a la Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton. It appears, though, that Lemaire is leaving for the same reasons that Jacobs recently did – to focus on his own brand, which he founded in 1991 and revived in 2007.

At this point, there’s no indication that Lemaire was encouraged to leave by new Hermès exec Axel Dumas, who took the reins of the company earlier this year and praised his work (and its financial returns) in his exit announcement.

Lemaire’s replacement hasn’t been announced, but whoever it is will have big shoes to fill after his last collection debuts at Paris Fashion Week in October.

OFF MY MIND

AndyTorresMadeleine5AndyTorresMadeleine8AndyTorresMadeleine12AndyTorresMadeleine11AndyTorresMadeleine9AndyTorresMadeleine2AndyTorresMadeleine10AndyTorresMadeleine7AndyTorresMadeleine13I’M WEARING  >>  Dress: & Other Stories  |  Shoes: Rolando Santana  |  Bracelet: Hermes  |  Watch: Daniel Wellington  |  Earring: Dior  |  Bag: Proenza Schouler  |  Ring: Tom Wood

This dress is as close to my perfect dress as it gets. I have never found a dress in that length, let alone half see through but it a good way. I have to say, it took a bit of courage to go out wearing this but the key is wearing the “right underwear”. I found an amazing pair of hight waisted hot pants or more like granny panties to be honest and that is a perfect match for this.

Sorry for the overload of photos but this time I didn’t know which ones to choose.

I don’t remember ever celebrating my birthday so many days in a row but when my entire plans of going back home to Mexico had to change, I really wanted to do something to change my mind from missing my family on such a special day and a week -weekend- in Paris came along….I wanted to THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for all the messages, Instagrams, comments and sweet congratulation emails. I did read every single one of them and they made my day so bright and happy. You guys are always so supportive and caring, it really means the world to me.

This is what I wore for my birthday dinner at the amazing Le Pur restaurant in the Park Hyatt Paris. I feel so incredibly blessed and grateful that I got to have my birthday dinner at a restaurant that not only is awarded with a Michelin star, but the staff really made me feel like a princess the whole night. I don’t think I’ve ever had a meal quite as delicious as the one I had that night and I hope I get to experience it again sometime soon. Now its time to get back into my running routine again as I ate way too much while I was in Paris, which was TOTALLY the point! ;)

THANK YOU ALL!!!

Nene Leakes’ Birkin is Covered in Real Housewives Catchphrases

Nene Leakes’ Birkin is Covered in Real Housewives Catchphrases

Here’s Real Housewife Nene Leakes, leaving last night’s taping of Watch What Happens Live in NYC. As you can clearly see, that’s a “customized” Hermès Birkin covered in all of Nene’s most infamous sayings from her time on Real Housewives. I’m sure you’ll all have some thoughts about this, but Nene can probably afford to spare a Birkin or two for self-promotional purposes.

There were a lot of online murmurs this month that Nene might be leaving RHOA because of a proposed paycut from Bravo, but she will indeed return for her 7th consecutive season of ATL drama. Nene is also poised to launch The Nene Leakes Collection on HSN at the end of the month. Her clothing line accommodates both standard and plus sized fashionistas and will make its debut on HSN on July 28th.

Instagram Handbag Celebrity: @leorangebliss

Instagram Handbag Celebrity: @leorangebliss

While most of the time we tend to find collections with an array of different designers, that’s certainly not the case with this week’s Instagram celebrity. It’s safe to say that Instagrammer @leorangebliss has more Hermès than most people can ever dream of owning.

Very little is known about who @leorangebliss actually is, but her identity seems to hardly matter when you’re showing off such a colorful array of Hermès Birkins.

Take a look below to see some of our favorite snapshots from @leorangebliss’ Instagram feed, or head straight to her profile to see her full collection!

The Many Bags of Petra and Tamara Ecclestone

We see a lot of Hermès bags around here, but rarely do we see collections as spectacular as those of Petra and Tamara Ecclestone. We previously examined who the British heiresses are and where their seemingly endless supplies of dollars come from, and now we’re here to take a true, in-depth look at as many of the Ecclestones’ bags as we can find. In addition to Hermè, get ready to see a lot of Céline.

When it comes to hair in the summer, especially at the beach, I think one of the most beautiful things you can do is cover it up. I love the look of a big, bright silk scarf wrapped around the head, totally hiding your hair– ideal for bad hair days or for wind-proofing your locks…

I have an oversized, vintage, silk Chanel scarf that I found at a thirft store a few years ago (it was only $1, it was a fashion miracle!) and this is exactly how I’m planning to wear it this summer. It’s striking but with a retro feel, like Grace Kelly or Jackie O — two ladies I don’t mind having as style inspirations.

Khloe Kardashian Carries Her Trusty Blue Birkin

Khloe Kardashian Carries Her Trusty Blue Birkin

Here’s Khloe Kardashian, arriving at LAX to fly to destinations unknown, keeping it somewhat low-key with sweats, Nikes and a cobalt blue Hermès Birkin. This Birkin is a particular favorite of hers; she’s had it for several years and carries it pretty regularly. In fact, we just saw her carrying it last week in NYC. You can peruse Khloe’s extremely colorful handbag collection in “The Many Bags of Khloe Kardashian.”

Khloe definitely has the most diverse bag collection out of all the Kardashian sisters. While the Kardashians rarely carry anything other than the biggest, most expensive “It” bags out there (Céline, Hermès, Chanel), Khloe is far more likely to choose a bolder hue or an unusual shape. Which adds a little more variety to my day, especially now that Kim K. wears/carries black, tan and beige almost exclusively.

Check Out What Your Favorite Stars Carry to the Beach

Check Out What Your Favorite Stars Carry to the Beach

I have a friend who brings her Prada bag to the beach. She’s a sensible girl at heart, and her attitude about her bag is that it’s hers, it’s saffiano and it should be able to put up with a little sand every now and then. And largely, she’s right – it never looks any worse for the wear.

Talking about that with her got me thinking about the bags that we see celebrities toting to the beach. During this time of year, our photo agency has plenty of photos of stars sunning themselves with expensive handbags in tow, and to investigate their choices (spoiler alert: lots of Louis Vuitton), we’ve assembled several dozen images of celebs and their beach bags below.

Miranda Kerr and Her Birkin Look Beautiful in Spite of the Sweltering Heat

Miranda Kerr and Her Birkin Look Beautiful in Spite of the Sweltering Heat

Here’s supermodel Miranda Kerr, doing Miranda Kerr things on an especially steamy, 93-degree day in New York City and making an intentionally exposed black bralet look ridiculously chic, somehow. (Strangely enough, the woman standing behind her is trying the exact same thing. I’d say Miranda wears it better, but I might be biased by my insane girl crush on MK.) Miranda is carrying a black Hermes Birkin, natch.

Unless you just landed here, you probably know that Miranda is one of our favorite celebs to feature on PurseBlog and TalkShoes; her accessories picks usually trump every other celeb’s bag and/or shoes on any given day. You can see all of her exceptional fashion ensembles in “The Many Bags of Miranda Kerr”, “The Many Bags of Miranda Kerr, Part 2″, and “The Many Shoes of Miranda Kerr.”

Le Bain

There are few things more luxurious than a bath.

Truthfully, I don’t even know the last time I took a bath (I’m a shower girl). It definitely hasn’t happened since I’ve lived in New York (tubs here are far too small) but when I think of the ultimate way to relax, it’s with a bath. And if I do it, I want to go all out. Bubbles, music, candles and good smells.

Hermès’ new line, Le Bain, features a collection of bath products based on their signature scents. Not only do they smell amazing, but combined with the classic packaging (soaps in a little orange box, j’adoreeee!) it makes for one seriously chic bath.

Man Bag Monday: Hermès Vintage Buenaventura Briefcase

Man Bag Monday: Hermès Vintage Buenaventura Briefcase

Canvas is a tricky textile. It’s perfect for summer because it’s lightweight and breathable, which can matter even in accessories when it’s so hot out that the idea of having anything heavy or warm touching your body is too much to bear. On the flip side, it can also look inappropriately casual or, at worst, totally sloppy. The Hermès Vintage Buenaventura Briefcase, thankfully, has none of those problems.

This piece, sourced by East Dane through famous vintage purveyors What Goes Around Comes Around, is the perfect summer bag for a professional man working in a corporate environment. The Buenaventura style is much more common in a messenger variant, which is more casual, but this well-tailored shape keeps the look formal.

If it tickles your fancy, pick up this black-on-black charmer via East Dane for $2,455.

Instagram Handbag Celebrity: @fashionistaac

Instagram Handbag Celebrity: @fashionistaac

I always love perusing through Instagram and finding amazing collections to share with all of you, but this week, I may have had a little too much fun going through all of @fashionistaac’s pictures. If you aren’t already familiar with Camelia, better known as @fashionistaac, you’re in for a treat.

For starters, Camelia has a serious knack for designer bags (especially Hèrmes), so much so that even her young daughter appears to be carrying a Cèline Nano Luggage Tote in one of her photos. (Camelia, can we be your daughter, too?)

Her love for Hèrmes doesn’t just stop at handbags; she has a excessive collection of silk scarves and loads of enamel bracelets that can be seen throughout her Instagram. From what we’ve read, it seems she permanently resides in Belgium, but has a residence in Miami, which she frequents.

While we may not know exactly what it is that Camelia does for a living (it’s rumored she may have owned her own clothing line or store at one point), one thing is for certain: she has a great sense of style. Even Sophia Webster mentioned her in an interview, saying she loved seeing @fashionistaac’s pictures for her style and unexpected color choices.

Take a look at some of our favorite pictures from Camelia’s collection, or head straight to her Instagram page to see her full collection.

Laura on her way to work

I love heading to the studio in the morning. I walk, put my earphones on and listen to a podcast (do you know of any good ones?) cross my neighborhood, Washington Square Park and then Soho – and here I am.

What’s fun is that super often, a few minutes before getting there, I see my friend Laura – also on her way to work.
I’m always inspired by her outfits.

So, a second of inspiration, a big hello, and we’re back on our ways…

Kim Kardashian Pairs a Blond Wig with an All-Black Birkin

Kim Kardashian Pairs a Blond Wig with an All-Black Birkin

People got excited for a hot minute when Kim Kardashian tweeted that she had dyed her hair blond again, but then Kim later burst everyone’s bubble by revealing via Instagram that her new blond locks were actually just a wig. Which is too bad, because I liked blond Kim. Here she is, reveling in her flaxen-haired deception for a day on the streets of NYC. Her bag is her trusty Hermes So Black Birkin, which works extremely well with Kanye’s uber-strict designer dress code.

Kim has been carrying this bag a lot recently – here she is holding it close at LAX last month, and here she is just last week in NYC, carrying it with another all-black ensemble. You can check out all of Kim’s many Birkins in “The Many, Many Bags of Kim Kardashian.” To her credit, she has only been seen carrying this hand-painted Hermes nightmare that Kanye gifted her last X-mas once.

Lady Gaga Carries Vintage Hermes to Her Dad’s Restaurant

Lady Gaga Carries Vintage Hermes to Her Dad’s Restaurant

Here’s Lady Gaga, arriving at her father’s restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, in NYC, carrying a vintage Hermes Kelly Bag that has been…well loved. Gaga has a history of carrying altered, or, depending on your perspective, “defaced,” Hermes bags, so it’s not a stretch to think that she likes the half-destroyed look of this one. You can find pre-owned Hermes Kelly bags in far superior condition for sale on Portero.

We’ve seen Gaga with a similar Hermes Kelly Bag before, so it’s possible that she and this Kelly have simply been through a lot together, and she feels compelled to continue carrying it for purely sentimental reasons. Or maybe a busted Hermes bag is just a key component of her unique vision for this particular fashion ensemble. You can see all of her ladyship’s favorite Hermes bags (and wonderfully bizarre outfits) in “The Many Bags of Lady Gaga.”

Irina Shayk Beats the New York Heat with an Hermes Birkin

Irina Shayk Beats the New York Heat with an Hermes Birkin

Russian supermodel (and repeat Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl) Irina Shayk was recently spotted hanging out with a couple of friends in Soho. She’s carrying a bright, cobalt blue Hermes Birkin, of course. It’s surprising to see Irina in the city when her boyfriend, Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, is currently playing for his home country of Portugal in the World Cup. Irina has not yet made an appearance in Brazil, but she definitely appears in our “50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels.”

In other quasi-related handbag designer/World Cup news, Louis Vuitton has designed the hard case for the coveted World Cup trophy once again this year. (The brand also had the honor in 2010.) They’ve gone with their classic monogram canvas, for maximum brand exposure during the big reveal. You can see LV’s case design and the 2014 World Cup trophy here.

Instagram Handbag Celebrities: @fashionlover178

You’d think that after covering Instagram accessory celebrities for a little over a month now, I would be used to the idea of owning the same bag in eighteen different colors, but no. This week, I stumbled upon the Instagram of Hermes and Chanel addict @fashionlover178.

Besides the fact that she has an insane accessory collection, enjoys occasional dinners with the Hermes brothers and owns more bling than maybe P.Diddy himself, we know very little about her. While most of her accessory-heavy pictures don’t show her face, she posts plenty of pictures of herself at lavish parties and exotic locations throughout her Instagram.

So while we may not have a lot on the person behind the bags, this collection speaks for itself. Take a look at some of our favorite pictures below, or join the rest of her 65,000-plus fans and see her full Instagram.

Instagram’s Handbag Celebrities: @orangekissed

Instagram’s Handbag Celebrities: @orangekissed

There are a few Instagram handbag celebrities that have created their own recognizable aesthetic for taking pictures of their collections, and @orangekissed is most definitely one of our favorites. Just one scroll through her Instagram feed and you’ll be drooling over the beautiful array of rainbow colored Birkins and Valentino Rockstuds. While we may not know @orangekissed’s actual identity or much else about her, here’s what we do know: she lives in California (which could explain her love her sunglasses), it’s safe to assume her three favorite designers are Hermes, Chanel and Valentino, and she’s certainly not scared to add a little color to her outfits.

While @orangekissed is most well-known for her color-coordinated pictures and perfectly paired accessories, she’s also really engaged with her followers and commenters. Wondering what color her Hermes Kelly Bag is? Just ask her. She’s extremely helpful when it comes to identifying colors, she’s totally honest about the comfort of her shoes and she will almost always thank you for your praise.

Take a look at @orangekissed’s Instagram collection and scroll through her accessory heaven. The only complaint we have is that there aren’t more pictures – we could scroll through her closet all day!

The Many Bags of Kylie and Kendall Jenner

The Many Bags of Kylie and Kendall Jenner

You may have heard that Kylie and Kendall Jenner have recently released a new sci-fi novel. I was going to say that they “wrote” it, but that seems like it would be a generous description of their relationship to the book. Instead, we’d like to spend a little time talking about something that the Jenner girls have a more obvious expertise in: designer handbags. Both of the youngest sisters in the Kardashian-Jenner clan take after their older sisters when it comes to a love for Celine, Givenchy and especially Balenciaga.

PurseForum Roundup – May 30

PurseForum Roundup – May 30

Happy Friday, PurseForum Roundup readers!  We are finishing out May in high style as we visit Chanel and Hermès and share a few other choice reveals with you from around the PurseForum. We also wanted to catch you up with our Celebrity forum, which has been incredibly busy this week. Come on along with us for our last Roundup of May!  


Chanel Buckle

In Chanel this week, the Vintage Thread is back on top, and we enjoyed flipping through its virtual pages to see the terrific bags and bargains our members have found. Be sure to check out this great find from Helen84, plus a magnificent caviar jumbo from psulion09. This thread makes for some interesting reading, and it’s wonderful to see the vintage bags finding new homes. By the way, December was a particularly excellent month for reveals, so be sure to click back if you are a fan of vintage Chanel.

Chanel Ballet Flats

Also in ChanelMaryJoe84 shared a double reveal with us and included lovely shots of her new flats and bag. In another testament to the swiftness of time’s passage, the May Purchases thread is about to wrap up, so be sure and stop by – there are plenty of bags and accessories to covet.

Highlights include Luxi_max’s gorgeous fuchsia WOC (wallet on a chain), Nikki528′s birthday gifts, and ChristChrist’s knockout metallic green Boy, a bag that is seriously not to be missed! Remember, our Chanel subforum is full of reference threads to help with a purchase – perhaps we will see YOUR new Chanel purchase in our June purchases thread!


Hermes Birkin and Scarf

It’s been a while since we visited the Scarf of the Day thread in Hermès, where the theme for each week is posted here and our members share their beautiful scarves and shawls accordingly. Birkinmary’s contribution to “The Oldest Scarf You Own” week earlier this month caught our eye – her splendid Birkin and stunning Le Clerc scarf from 1946 are absolutely a match made in heaven.

PursePassionLV revealed a new scarf and bags this week, and dessert1st also had quite a time revealing her new haul of orange boxes. If like us, you never tire of seeing bags in action, Hermes boasts quite a collection of action threads, including Socialites, Stars and Public figures, ladies and gents from Asia, and of course our very own members!    We have some more quick reveals for you this week – This is our chance to share the eyepopping goodies we find in our visits to the PurseForums huge selection of conversations.


David Yurman Bracelets

In the Jewelry Box, we found pinkny’s collection of David Yurman in the thread dedicated to this creative and accessible designer. While in the Jewelry Box, be sure to stop by the fascinating and friendly Jade Thread, and of course the Jewelry of the Day thread to see more of our members’ treasures in action.  


Saint Laurent Cabas

In Saint Laurent, angelxchild wasted no time in getting the wrapping off her new Cabas Tote, and what a perfect bag it is! The Arty Rings thread is still going strong, so if you are a fan of statement jewelry, drop in and see the latest acquisitions and modeling shots from our stylish members!


Christian Louboutin Cutout Pumps

In the Show off your New Shoes thread in Christian Louboutin, we spotted a summery pair of Duvettes in a pretty pairing of coral and ivory courtesy of sophe. Also in Louboutin, we have an interesting thread underway entitled “What would you have done differently” – this promising thread has some interesting observations from our seasoned shoppers, sure to help anyone dipping their toes into the CL waters for the first time.


 

Dinner with a View

Our Celebrity subforums are among the busiest on the PurseForum. This week, Celebrity News and Gossip has been abuzz with, what else, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and their over-the-top nuptials. From the buildup in Paris to the wind-down in Ireland, our members have been following along and, of course, adding their own commentary to the worldwide press.

We are also breaking down the latest news on Will and Kate, Beyonce and Jay Z, Alexander Skarsgard and so many more. If you are in the mood for some celebrity dish, we have you covered! If you prefer style to gossip, we have a special subforum dedicated to Celebrity Style, where we have left no one out. And if we did, feel free to start a style thread for your favorite celebrity – there’s room for everyone! (Our accompanying photograph comes from the Playground, courtesy of ninakt and the Random Picture thread.)


Well, that finishes up May, Roundup readers. We will see you right back here in June. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend and week ahead from all of us. We really appreciate you taking the time to visit us here at the PurseBlog, and look forward every Friday to sharing some of the great bags and interesting conversations happing over at the PurseForum! See you soon!

eBay’s Best Bags of the Week – May 28

eBay’s Best Bags of the Week – May 28

Welcome to our weekly roundup of great bags on eBay. We have another great buy on a Market Bag – this time from Hermès, a pretty vintage Lady Dior in patent leather and a brand new Céline bag just waiting for your best offer. We also spotted an unusual bag from Alexander McQueen and a pretty little Goyard that might strike your fancy. Happy hunting!

PurseForum Roundup – May 23

PurseForum Roundup – May 23

Welcome to the unofficial start of summer in the US! In America, we traditionally ring in summer on Memorial Day, which falls on Monday, May 26th, this year. We have been looking forward to summer since Christmas, it seems! This week, signs of summer were everywhere – in Balenciaga, we found a particularly sunny yellow bag ready for summer. We also visited Home and Garden and some other designer destinations, so come on along and join us in this week’s PurseForum Roundup!


Purple Coach Bag

In Coach, LovingLV81′s reveal of new sunglasses reminded us that bags are not the only way to usher in summer, and LocaLady started off the new Lets Share Rainbows thread with colorful a bag lineup that has everybody talking.

Deep purple isn’t exactly a color of summer, but rose10′s new bucket bag is so on point with the season’s trend – and we love purple – so we could not resist! This lacquer blue Georgie from frivofrugalista certainly has a summer sky vibe, and we love this wearable style. May has been a busy month for our Official Coach Spring 2014 thread, too, so be sure to catch up on the styles in the boutiques at the moment.


Purple Decor

Roundup regulars know we love to visit the non-bag areas of the PurseForum and share glimpses into our members’ lives outside of their bag collections. This week, Home and Garden has been very busy, with discussions on every topic you could imagine. In the Newest Decor Items thread, we found this gorgeous shot of peaceonearth’s new throw, just one of the many stylish new purchases revealed over the last month.

We also have a lively NYC rents rant, a discussion on candle scents and a thought-provoking discussion on whether members are content with their current houses. Our Playground has something for everyone, including discussions of current events, the hottest TV shows and a popular forum dedicated to our pets – Animalicious.


Balenciaga Yellow City Bag

In Balenciaga, we stopped by the March/April purchases thread and found this cheery bag that has found a home with Dils. We also spotted a gorgeous new Day in a color Roundup readers will know made us swoon – congratulations to peachylv on this periwinkle beauty! Nothing says summer like a ripe tangerine, and gettinpurseonal showed off her new-to-her Balenciaga Day bags – two as-new bags for the price of one, an irresistible bargain.

Fellow lovers of purple will enjoy rainneday’s new raisin City; if a handy hip bag is more your thing, you will love this soft grey Hip from Heart Star. On another note, Balenciaga regulars are well versed in the strap connundrum – specifically, the difficulties associated with ordering custom straps from Balenciaga – and the topic regularly appears on page one of the Balenciaga subforum.

This week, however, the subject has taken a turn for the better as porscheNchanel shared her brand new custom strap for her Arena Classic. We love how our PurseForum members help one another solve these nagging issues, and we love seeing their reveals even more.


Hermes Arm Party

We visited the Jay Strongwater charms thread in the Jewelry Box last month, and this week we see that plenty more charms have been added, so do stop by and see the growing collection – we found a favorite, have you? We also have an interesting new thread on jewelry myths and superstitions that makes for some fascinating reading.

Speaking of which, an evil eye bracelet takes center stage in this splendid stack from Cartierangel in the Layering and Stacking thread; the evil eye also has its own thread in case you are interested in more on this particular motif.


Ring Sketch and Final Product

In the Engagement Ring thread, we all had a lot of fun watching the progress of Chilean’s custom engagement ring creation for his upcoming proposal. Our members were generous with feedback during the process, and thrilled to see the final result. Now we are just waiting to hear how the proposal went (and waiting for our wedding invitations, of course).


Rebecca Minkoff In The Bag Coin Purse

We thought we would close out the Roundup with a couple of quick reveals around the PurseForum. In Rebecca Minkoff, we found Liyanamz’s very cute Cory Pouch in the May Purchases thread. RM fans have other styles and purchases on their minds, so feel free to come on over and see what they are up to.


Mulberry Del Rey Bag

In Mulberry, MetLen’s new aubergine Del Rey topped the charts, and for good reason. This pretty bag was not the only excitement in Mulberry, however – we also caught up with the Spring sale and reveals from aerihna and handbagahholic, among others.

Again, we wish you a very happy Friday, Roundup readers, and a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend. We hope you have time to visit with family and enjoy fine weather, wherever you are. We look forward to seeing you right here next week for another edition of the PurseForum Roundup!

Bethenny Frankel Picks Up Bryn With a Birkin in Tow

Bethenny Frankel Picks Up Bryn With a Birkin in Tow

Here’s former Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel, literally picking her daughter Bryn up from school in Tribeca. Bethenny is carrying a black Hermes Birkin, one of the many, many Birkins she has in her handbag collection. It’s somewhat surprising when we see Bethenny carrying anything else. (On a quasi-related note, we’ve never seen Bethenny’s daughter Bryn wearing any color other than pink.) You can see Bethenny’s many Birkins via “The Many Bags of Bethenny Frankel.”

Bethenny’s talk show was canned back in February – ratings never picked up steam, so it wasn’t a huge surprise. (It’s possible that someone miscalculated the appeal of a Bravo “Real Housewife” to the daytime TV-watching set.) Since then, Bethenny has turned her focus back to parenting little Bryn, wrapping up her split from estranged husband Jason and expanding her signature Skinny Girl cocktail line into other types of foods and beverages.

Instagram’s Handbag Celebrities: @ec24m

Instagram’s Handbag Celebrities: @ec24m

Unlike many Instagram handbag celebrities, Jamie Chua, a seemingly ageless Singapore socialite, has absolutely no problem revealing her identity while giving us a glimpse into her fabulous life. Throughout her Instagram, you’ll find plenty of pictures of her standing in front of expensive cars and eating fancy food in beautiful places, but it’s her pictures filled with Chanel, Fendi and LOADS of Hermes that we’re really drooling over. Jamie’s closet is stacked with more Hermes bags than an actual Hermes store – no joke. She owns some of the rarest bags we’ve seen anywhere, including the rare Hermes Doll bag, multiple croc Birkins and even some designer bags we’ve never even seen before.

While doing some research on Jamie Chua, we came across this video of an interview she did discussing her recent Instagram fame, in which she seems quite lovely and humble about her newfound notariety. In the interview, she explains that she started her Instagram as sort of a fashion diary, where followers could get ideas and inspiration. Little did she know, her photos would garner a ton of attention.

Make the jump to see some of our favorite pictures from @ec24m’s Instagram, or head over yourself to get lost in a sea of colorful Birkins.

Kourtney Kardashian Carries a Birkin En Route to Kim’s Wedding

Kourtney Kardashian Carries a Birkin En Route to Kim’s Wedding

Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, preparing to get on a flight to Paris at LAX with her kiddos Mason and Penelope. (Or maybe it was a flight to Florence? Frankly, we’ve all been down the “Kim Kardashian’s wedding” rabbit hole before, and it’s hard to care.) Kourtney is carrying a black Hermes Birkin, natch. We just saw Kourtney landing at LAX last week with a very covetable Celine Knot Tote, and mere days later, we saw Kim departing LAX with a black Birkin of her own.

As we’ve mentioned before, Kourtney’s sisters Kim and Khloe have both already been awarded their own edition of “The Many Bags of…” (you can see Kim’s here and Khloe’s here), and Kourtney is definitely the next Kardashian in the pipeline. Kourtney’s half-sis Kendall Jenner probably isn’t too far behind her, come to think of it. We did include Kourtney in our special Mother’s Day edition, though: “The Many Bags of Celebrity Moms.”

In Need of More Birkin-Based Attention, Tyler Shields Feeds “Hermes” to an Alligator

In Need of More Birkin-Based Attention, Tyler Shields Feeds “Hermes” to an Alligator

Any young fame-seeker worth his Twitter followers knows that if something works once, it’ll probably work again. With that in mind, erstwhile Birkin (“Birkin”) destroyer and photographer Tyler Shields is back and making more waves with his lofty, arty thoughts on consumerism via more photos of an Hermes (maybe) handbag in a compromising position.

These photos from Shields’ “Induldgence” series, currently featured on his website, started spreading around the Internet late on Friday, attached to headlines about how the wild-child photog is at it again with another “$100,000″ handbag, photographed with a live alligator and actress Ana Mulvoy-Ten. There are two problems with that idea.

First, it is highly unlikely that the bag is real. The last time Shields got up to these shenanigans, he eventually admitted (after we outed him) to buying the bag out of the trunk of someone’s car and that he was unable to prove he had actually paid the staggering amount of the bag that he originally claimed. Past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, as they say, and I’m not sure this bag passes the sniff test.

The bag, both in these photos and the YouTube video that goes behind the scenes of the shoot, looks incredibly flimsy. Glossy crocodile Birkins are incredibly structured bags, lined in leather, that are unlikely to flop over flat as easily as this one does. It’s not impossible, but it’s also not likely.

Also, when I went over to our Forum to see if these photos had been discussed, a thread on them had been deleted by a section moderator with this explanation: “Bag is fake.” Take that as you will!

This is what a real Hermes Crocodile Birkin looks like.

This is what a real Hermes Crocodile Birkin looks like.

Second, even if we suspend disbelief and allow the premise that this is a real crocodile Birkin, it would certainly not have the sensationalist six-figure price tag that other sites so breathlessly assign it. Crocodile Birkins in excellent condition go for mid-five figures on the resale market, and that’s higher than their retail price by a not-insignificant margin. In the video, which has not been color-corrected like these photos have, the bag appears to be Blue Roi, which is not a rare Hermes color and would not drive the price up further. Also, the hardware is standard-issue Palladium, which would not increase the price.

The bag’s fake, in all likelihood, but even if it weren’t, it wouldn’t cost $100,000. Nowhere near it. Tyler Shields is a charlatan, but we all already knew that. If you’re interested, the rest of the Birkin photos are below, and you can see the full shoot, which includes “Prada” popcorn, via his website.

Kim Kardashian Clutches Her Trusty So Black Birkin in a Paparazzi Scrum

Kim Kardashian Clutches Her Trusty So Black Birkin in a Paparazzi Scrum

Here’s Kim Kardashian, navigating her way through LAX amid an enormous mob of paparazzi, carrying her extremely rare Hermes So Black Birkin, and we’ve seen her carrying this coveted Birkin before. Kim is quite the collector of exotic Birkins, in fact, it could easily be argued that she’s one of the most prolific Birkin collectors, because she has both the wealth and the high profile necessary to gain access to the really good stuff.

Kim does occasionally liquidate some of her Birkin assets, presumably so she can acquire even more Birkins. Here’s Kim with a 30 cm Himalayan Crocodile Birkin earlier this year, a bag which is rarely seen in the wild. You can view the majority of Kim’s Hermes investments (some of which are now owned by other Birkin/Kardashian paraphernalia collectors) in “The Many (Many) Bags of Kim Kardashian.”

eBay’s Best Bags of the Week – May 14

This week on eBay, more vintage bargains caught our eyes, as well as some current styles. Train case? Briefcase? We have you covered! We also found a lovely, rare tote from Bottega Veneta, and we must have had mustard on the mind, because our Balenciaga find is a similar color; both are gorgeous! We have more surprises, like a fun and unusual bag from Hermès and a sleek tote from Alexander Wang, to round out our finds this week.

Arty

Remember all those art inspired looks from spring? You know, the ones that make you look like a walking canvas?

Turns out, wearing those arty pieces isn’t as tricky as I had thought before… I like how Jenn went for a graphic look on top, mixed in with those (dreamy) graffiti Céline sneakers.

Outfit inspiration for a weekend at Frieze?

eBay’s Best Bags of the Week – May 7

Welcome to the eBay Roundup. We spotted some gorgeous rare bags this week, including a beautiful Bottega Veneta Paille Novulato Veneta in a great color for summer and a medium sized Hermès Trim in a perfect shade of red. We also found a nicely priced Goyard St. Louis and a gem of a little vintage Chanel shoulder bag. Check out the spoils of our searches below!

Naya Rivera Proves the Hermes Kelly Bag Can be Carried Casually

Naya Rivera Proves the Hermes Kelly Bag Can be Carried Casually

Here’s actress Naya Rivera carrying an Hermes Kelly Bag during a recent coffee run in LA. We saw Naya pair this same Kelly with a drastically different outfit during New York Fashion Week back in February. The Kelly is generally considered a more ladylike bag, but the brand’s popularity among the young and rich has resulted in some less traditional styling, like you see here. (Hermes plus Nikes. Discuss.)

It has not been a great couple of months for Naya Rivera – first her engagement to rapper Big Sean went down in flames, and just yesterday it was announced that she won’t be re-joining the rest of the Glee cast for its sixth and final season, perhaps due in part to her behind-the-scenes feuding with co-star Lea Michelle. But as long as you have a good Hermes bag (and a few lucrative endorsement deals on the side), life can’t be all that bad, eh?

#PBWIMB Instagram Roundup – May 1

#PBWIMB Instagram Roundup – May 1

Maybe it’s something in the water, but this week’s #PBWIMB pictures were particularly pretty. With lots of bright designer bags from a pink Balenciaga to a bold blue Chanel, every single one of these Instagrams is prettier than the next. Take a look at our picks of the week and peek inside some of seriously beautiful bags. If the handbags aren’t enough, the baby-and-Balencianga combo is bound to melt to your heart.

Inside the Handbag Collections of Europe’s Most Famous WAGs

Inside the Handbag Collections of Europe’s Most Famous WAGs

Although most of our celebrity handbag coverage is US-centric, we try to keep in mind that not only are a lot of our readers not American, but a lot of fantastic handbag collections exist in the closets of celebrities beyond our shores. We do our best to find those celebs in the archives of our photo agency, but over the years, I’ve noticed one very clear thing: paparazzi seem to love taking pictures of European athletes’ wives, girlfriends and ex-wives more than anyone else on the entire continent, or some reason. Those women also carry a ton of flashy handbags, perhaps unsurprisingly.

The WAGs, as they’re referred to as a group, are sometimes famous and successful in their own right before they marry (Victoria Beckham, the undisputed Queen of the WAGs), and other times not so much (Coleen Rooney, footballer Wayne Rooney’s high school sweetheart). Whatever their pre-relationship status, marrying a football star (they’re generally footballers’ wives) seems to give these women an extra boost of notoriety that makes them irresistible to the lenses of European paps, and that’s fine with us because now we get to look at their fancy handbags.

The same phenomenon doesn’t seem to happen in the US; even though we’re no less obsessed with sports, the wives of the players generally receive little photographic attention. Which is too bad, because I bet their handbags are pretty fancy, too.

Introducing Our Weekly Roundup of eBay’s Best Handbags

Introducing Our Weekly Roundup of eBay’s Best Handbags

This morning, we’re proud to introduce PurseBlog’s newest feature, the weekly eBay Handbag Roundup. Starting today, we’ll be scouring the nooks and crannies of the world’s biggest auction site to bring you both rare finds that are inaccessible to almost everyone and great deals on handbags that are longtime fan favorites. This week, we found unusual bags from Hermés and Louis Vuitton, a pretty little evening bag from Gucci and a couple great deals that you really need to check out below.

Behold the Rare Hermes Kelly Doll Bag

Behold the Rare Hermes Kelly Doll Bag

I always learn new things on the PurseForum, and about 5 years ago, I remember seeing the ladies talk about the Hermes Kelly Doll Bag. They shared a photo of the bag, which is a classic Hermes Kelly with arms, legs, and a face smiling back at you and I thought it must not be real. But indeed it is, and this playful, rare design from the house of Hermes requires those who love it to go to great lengths to track down one of their own.

Our friends at Heritage Auctions have the hard-to-find Hermes Limited Edition Noisette Gulliver Leather Quelle Idole Kelly Doll Bag as part of their spring auction. The live auction begins today, and if this bag is something you’ve been searching for, now is your chance!

The Kelly Doll Bag is shrunken down to a tiny size, with dimensions of 6″ W x 5.5″ H x 2.5″ D. The whimsical feel of the bag comes from the smiling face and leather arms and feet. The turnlock closure is the nose of the bag, and the arms are moveable, which means you can pose your doll bag if you’d like. The current bid is $8,300 via Heritage Auctions.
