The Best Top Handle bags from the Fall / Winter 2014 collections

Other Brands

It seams that all the big name designers have created new styles in 2014, some from the spring and a more complete selection available for the upcoming Fall season.  Almost by coincidence each designer created a variation of the top handle bag as their IT style for the season.  Here’s a rundown of the top five top handle bags from the upcoming collections. Each designer does their own spin on this very classic style.

If the top handle style isn’t your favorite, check-out the guide to the best mini bags for the Fall 2014 season.

Proenza Schouler Doubles Down on Exotics for its Spring 2015 Bags

Other Brands

Proenza Schouler Spring 2015 Handbags 4

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been whispers that LVMH is interested in investing inProenza Schouler and growing it into a global luxury brand, and although that’s yet to come to fruition, it looks like Proenza is headed in a decidedly luxe direction on its own. After last season’s strong showing of exotics, Proenza’s Spring 2015 bag lineup looks as though it will continue in that direction.

These designs, all of which are new shapes for the brand, aren’t as strong as last season’s, but they do represent a notable evolution in the brand’s accessories look. There’s no signature hardware or digital prints to be found; instead, a neutral palate of black, ivory and tan took over, with the bag’s natural changes generally dictating the placement of the colors. Check out the images below and let us know what you think.

PurseForum Roundup – September 12

Other Brands

Prada Saffiano Bag Family

We are about to hit the midway mark of September, PurseForum Roundup readers, and we hope you had an enjoyable month so far. Thank you for stopping by as we make our way around the PurseForum, highlighting conversations we hope will interest you. This week, we visit Balenciaga, The Glass Slipper, Prada and more. Thank’s for joining us!


Givenchy Pandora with Bag Bug

Our Glass Slipper subforum is the home of everything shoe-related (or, more precisely, everything shoe-related that is not Christian Louboutin, which has its own dedicated subforum). This week we visited the What a PAIR thread, a place for our members to show off their favorite shoe and bag matchups. Authenticplease got creative with her olive Givenchy Pandora and pretty raspberry Zara pumps, rounding out the look off with fantastic Ray-Bans and a Fendi Bag Bug.

Also, be sure to catch arnott’s pairing of cute Tory Burch sneakers with a Coach messenger bag. Elsewhere in the Glass Slipper this week, we caught up with the Aquazzura thread. We found that one lucky member has already selected a pair and reports that they are wonderful. Also be sure to check out the Best Boots for a Real Winter thread, because soon it’ll be time to heed that advice!


Prada Saffiano Satchel

What a perfect Prada classic satchel for fall. Cvlshopaholic posted this saffiano Bowler and it’s a great choice for a first Prada. Lately, this brand’s subforum has been all about the totes, and we found this brilliant red saffiano tote in a quickie reveal from arviereyes. Don’t forget, like all of our designer subforums, Prada has a wonderful reference library, which includes a thread dedicated to our members’ modeling shots.

Prada Saffiano Bag Family

Prada also has a quiet but lovely collection thread, where we found this charming family photofrom labamse. Very inspiring.


Beauty Haul Burberry

We all have our favorite threads and areas of interest on the PurseForum, and the Beauty Bar is undeniably one of the most popular. Maybe it’s the myriad exchanges and Random Act of Kindness events, or maybe it’s the simple fact that buying beauty products is good, clean fun.

This week we found some interesting selections in the Recent Purchases thread (which has been very busy this summer!), including this photogenic collection from Misstake7198. Also be sure to check out the Rants and Raves section of the Beauty Bar for a no-holds-barred look at some of the products vying for a piece of your beauty budget.


Balenciaga Velo Bag

Balenciaga is another brand with a jam-packed Reference Library at the ready to help you with your bag purchases. Also in Balenciaga, the September-October Purchases thread looks to be in full swing, and we found this stunning metallic edge Velo from Prada123; we are sure this thread will be a busy one, so stop in often!

Balenciaga Apple Green First Bag

We also spotted this happy apple-green gem from Catash, a holy grail purchase that was quickly accompanied by this City bag in cumin; what can we say, the girl had a coupon! And two bags are better than one, right?


Valentino Ombre Pumps

Our visit to the Glass Slipper had us feeling shoozy, so we stopped by Valentino, where we know we can always find some rocking Rockstuds. These incredible ombre beauties from ladyjeyehave to be some of the prettiest shoes we have seen on the PurseForum, and you will be pleased to know there is an action shot as well! As we mentioned, we are all about totes these days, and this deep forest green version of the Rockstud really hit a home run. Congratulations toPhiomega for scoring such a winner – not bad for a first Valentino!


Butterfly and Flowers

That’s it for this week’s edition of the PurseForum Roundup, friends. We could not resist closing this post with this sweet photograph of a butterfly visiting marigolds in Sweetpea83′s colorful garden. This treasure is from the Random Picture thread in General Discussion, an interesting place to visit where anything goes!

Happy Weekend everyone! We hope it’s wonderful, and that we’ll see you right back here next week for another peek at the happenings on the PurseForum!

Rag & Bones Puts Handbags Front and Center for Spring 2015

Other Brands

Rag and Bone Spring 2015 Bags 5

Despite providing fundamental, foundational wardrobe pieces for basically every woman (and most men) in New York City who might be considered even vaguely cool, Rag & Bone is still searching for its handbag groove. The brand’s bag line is relatively young and has yet to hit the cult status of Rag & Bone’s inescapable leather booties, but you could tell by the proud, prominent placement of the models’ bags in the Rag & Bone Spring 2015 show that the company’s designers, who rarely make an aesthetic misstep, intend to change that.

When Rag & Bone started making bags several seasons ago, the problem with the line was that it felt like there was an aesthetic distance between the bags and the rest of the line; they were nice, but they didn’t always feel like they had the same magic that made the rest of the brand so covetable, season after season. Things looked very promising for the several new shapes that the brand debuted for Spring and Fall 2014, and now it looks like the efforts for 2015 will be continuing in that vein.

Rag & Bone’s clothes are so popular because the brand has a way of paring down something that other designer’s might feel the need to make more complicated, and when done correctly, it creates pieces that feel like the platonic ideal of their product categories, like the brand’s best-selling ankle boots and wide-brimmed hats. These bags aren’t quite that, but they have the easy, well-edited feel that indicates Rag & Bones has found its footing.
