Coach Spring 2015 Takes Us on a Mod Texas Roadtrip

Other Brands

Coach Spring 2015 Runway (14)

From the moment we entered the Coach Spring 2015 show, it was clear that creative director Stuart Vevers has yet to end his love affair with the idea of traditional Americana. From the engine sounds on the soundtrack to the flat, dusty West Texas vistas on the walls, the theme was much subtler in the bags, outwear and clothes than it was in the collection’s surroundings.

Although the collection’s western influences were occasionally visible – a utility vest here, a swath of rivets there – the end result was both softer and lighter than expected, down to the pastel metallics, fuzzy furs and little cartoon monsters from California artist Gary Baseman.

If bags are your primary concern (as they are ours), Coach’s big Spring 2015 push is an east-west satchel called the Swagger, which, by the looks of the runway, will come in two arm-carried sizes as well as a shrink-rayed mini crossbody. Take a look at our photos from the show below–what do you think of the collection?

PurseForum Roundup – September 5

Other Brands

Gucci Bamboo Satchel

Happy Friday, PurseForum Roundup readers! Summer flew by in the blink of an eye, and here we are looking toward the beginnings of autumn. This week, we wandered around The Playground and Celebrity subforums for a bit, and then visited Coach, Chloé and Gucci. There are plenty of bags and accessories to be enjoyed and lots of conversations to join!


Hermes Birkin Outfit

This week, we head right to The Wardrobe to catch some of summer’s last looks in our Outfit of the Day thread. We loved the breezy street style shot from meowmeow94, who pairs up an inexpensive dress with a fabulous bag for a result that is lovely, accessible and fun.

Our members are also keeping eye out for the latest Target designer collaboration and discussing the launch in the Altuzarra for Target thread. In the General Shopping section, we found a busy thread that asks an interesting question: Is the resale market dying? Our members know a great deal about shopping for new and previously owned bags, clothes and accessories, and this thread makes for a very good read.


Chloe Marcie Bag

In Chloé this week, we found this beautiful Marcie at the top of the page, and what a bag!Katran26 added this sharp satchel to her collection, and we are sure this purse will see a lot of action this fall. The color is excellent, and it’s a pure perfection with the gold hardware.

Daphane showed off her first Chloé, a gorgeous coral wallet that she was able to get for a steal. Also, Marcie fans will absolutely love this reveal of an elegant grey crossbody and matching wallet from KaseyHK. You can find plenty of Marcies and other Chloé styles in our Chloé in action thread, which may soon have you wondering what your next purchase will be.


Scones

Over in The Playground, we caught up with our food-loving fashionistas in The Kitchen, where we stopped by our favorite thread, I Ate This, where new member CreativelySwank posted these luscious shrimp fajitas and a prickly pear margarita, which strike us as a perfect pairing. We also want to share something that will warm up your fall mornings–nerimanna’sscrumptious scones and the recipe to make them at home!

Also in The Playground, the Television and Cinema subforum has been buzzing with the latest on our favorite movies and shows, including the final season of True Blood, the new Starz series Outlander, and return of The Good Wife. If you enjoy deconstructing plot twists and character development, drop in–we have a thread for just about every show and franchise!

By the way, did you know that the PurseForum has a special section dedicated to all thingsceleb-related, including special sections for gossip and style? These are among our busiest and liveliest destinations, and this past month we all shared our feelings over the sad passings of Robin Williams and Joan Rivers. We also caught up with Beyonce and Jay Z,  Mariah and Nick and, of course, the exciting news of the wedding of Brad and Angelina. Our members tell it like it is, and you will love their special brand of celebrity dish!


Coach Purple Satchel

We make it a point to drop into threads with colorful titles, and in Coach this week, we found plenty to love in the Happy Early Purple Birthday thread. Hollywoodbadgrl showed off her new bag and phone case; a perfect pairing to ring in September.

Coach Tanner Totes

Finding your Holy Grail bag is always cause for celebration, and when we dropped intojadis4783′s Holy Grail reveal thread, we certainly didn’t expect to find this impressive rainbow! It turns out that the blush Mini Tanner pictured at the far left was not only hard to find, but also essential to rounding out this amazing collection. Congratulations jadis4783–this is an impressive array of bags!

For more wonderful reveals, don’t miss the Coach Secondhand Bargains thread; you will be amazed at the treasures our Coachies find every single day!


Gucci Bamboo Satchel

PurseBlog readers know that the Gucci bamboo handle bags have a special place in our hearts. This week, we found a beauty revealed by arviereyes, hidden in a thread simply titled Reveal.And what a reveal it is! This splendid, classic bag steals our hearts every time, and this is a terrific color combination.

Gucci Loafers

We love when our gentlemen share their style and their new purchases, and this week, ujilirounded off a world-class shopping trip with a pair of iconic Gucci horsebit loafers. You will not want to miss his reveal of the entire haul, but these stylish shoes certainly deserve special mention, and attention! By the way, the ladies love the feminine iteration of these classic nike shoes, and ShariLee showed off her newest addition along with a family photo in her Addicted to the Horsebit loafer thread.

Well, Roundup readers, that finishes off our first Roundup of September. We hope you enjoyed this little taste of what goes on over at our sister forum. We look forward to bringing you these snippets each and every Friday and look forward to seeing you in a week’s time. Meanwhile, enjoy the weekend and the week ahead!

Kate Spade Mines Asian Imagery for Its Fall 2014 Accessories

Other Brands

Kate Spade Hello Tokyo Bags

It seems as though, with every passing season, extremely literal accessories become more and more popular among luxury customers. If you’ve got Charlotte Olympia tastes on a contemporary budget (or if you just don’t want to shell out huge bucks for a piece that’s more novelty than wardrobe-staple), you’ll want to check out the Kate Spade Hello Tokyo line, new for Fall 2014, which finds its inspiration exactly where you’d expect.

As always, the lines between aesthetic homage, cultural appropriation and offensive stereotyping are incredibly thin; although the geishas-and-sushi stuff seems more than a little on the nose to me, the totally adorable cat minaudiere, for example, manages to be totally adorable without resorting to the lowest-hanging fruit of Japanese cultural imagery. Check out some pieces from the collection below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Steve Madden Is At It Again: This Time, He’s Collaborating with Iggy Azalea

Other Brands

Madden and Azalea Feature Image

Big things are happening over at Steve Madden. First we told you about Madden’s company acquiring the Brian Atwood brand, and about two weeks ago, the Madden also acquired Dolce Vita for $60.3 million dollars. After the major Dolce Vita purchase, WWD reported that the company might not be done with its acquisitions and market moves, and that appears to be true.

The next big thing in line for Steve Madden is a footwear collaboration with rapper Iggy Azalea. The deal between Madden and Azalea was announced earlier this week, and the collection is set to debut in February 2015. The company definitely appears to be in a spending mood; Azalea is one of the year’s breakout stars, especially in fashion circles, and getting her on board was probably pretty expensive. One must give credit where credit is due, and we’re looking forward to see all that Steve Madden has up his sleeve!

5 Easy Pieces to Start Building Your Fall Wardrobe

5 Pieces to Start Your Fall Wardrobe 1

If you’re like me, you don’t buy a new wardrobe every season; not only does that require a limitless budget, but it’s kind of a waste when you have things from last year that you’ve been dying to return to your regular rotation. It’s always fun to buy something new, though; it marks the beginning of a new season and helps make your existing wardrobe feel a little bit fresher.

In those situations, the best thing you can do is choose a piece that straddles the line between something that can be worn regularly and something that feels more like a “statement” piece. Below, check out five of our favorites from fall’s new crop that make an impact without feeling overtly trendy–these are the pieces that you’ll be excited to pull out again when next fall rolls around.
