We Are Doubling Down on the Brand-New Prada Bag

The piece: Prada Double Bag

Why we want it: There’s not much that will take our laser focus off New York Fashion Week, but an alert that Prada launched a completely new bag shape caused us to stop and take notice. So, what’s different about the new Prada Double? It’s exactly what we’d want in a statement bag that we’ll take with us everywhere, every day: it’s substantial yet lightweight, and that internal divider is key to keeping contents organized. Plus, the minimal construction — hand-covered buttons and a new metal name plaque are the only additions — makes it timeless, so we can bring it in and out of our closets for years to come.

The only hard part is deciding on a color. The new tote’s leather exterior and nappa interior come in tone-on-tone and contrasting palettes, but the colors themselves run the gamut. Should we go with basic black, bold blue, or a luxe caramel? See them all below, and then help us decide.

The Many Bags of Amal Alamuddin Clooney – Handbag du Jour

Other Brands

The Many Bags of Amal Alamuddin Clooney; designer handbags
Amal Alamuddin Clooney has been a successful human rights attorney and one of London’s most powerful women for years. But last year she became even more universally-known when she married Hollywood’s most famous bachelor. Ever since then, she’s been frequently followed by the paps and as a result, we’ve been able to get a closer look at her chic personal style! Amal loves a balance between classic and quirky. As an accomplished attorney, she often wears power suits, sleek shift dresses and tailored pants to which she adds fun twists and odd touches, like different colored shoes of the same style, colorful eyewear, and handbags named after her! On the weekends, or when she’s traveling, she prefers skinny, colorful pants or ripped boyfriend jeans and brogues, paired with chunky knits and classic, European designer handbags, like Prada shoppers, Dolce & Gabbana totes & Mulberry, to name a few. Whether she’s on the red carpet, representing some of the world’s most infamous people in court, or jetting off on a private jet with her husband, George Clooney, Amal’s got a style all her own. Check out the many bags of Amal Alamuddin Clooney!

On the red carpet at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards, Amal complemented her husband in a black Dior gown paired with white opera length leather gloves (that George claims she made herself) and a matching white leather Dior clutch.

A true power player, Amal heads to work-related events toting a bag named after her: the Ballin ‘Amal’ Bag in taupe!

When she’s traveling or heading to work meetings, a Balenciaga Giant bag in gold and black or the Balenciaga Classic Velo Suede Tote (also available here) are Amal’s bags of choice.

Amal often gives us a modern day Jackie Onassis vibe, especially when she wears looks like this: a tailored, houndstooth print dress accessorized with oversized sunglasses, classic pumps and this hatbox-style Dolce & Gabbana Large Red Leather Anna Bag (Get a similar bag here)

Amal loves to punch up a colorful frock with fun accessories, like bright yellow pumps and a Salvatore Ferragamo Arianna Fringe-Trim Woven Leather Satchel.

When she got married at a civil ceremony in Venice, Amal gave us another Jackie O-style look: a chic, crisp white pantsuit, matching oversized hat and a Stella McCartney Beckett Envelope Clutch (available at SSENSE, Net-A-Porter and MyTheresa)

While running errands, Amal totes a Mulberry Willow Tote with a printed sundress, grabs an edgy, camo-print clutch adorned with neon, crystal skulls or throw a black Miu Miu bag over her shoulder:

Fashion Chanel Boy Wallet On Chain

Other Brands

Chanel-Boy-Wallet-On-Chain-In-Metallic-LambskinChanel-Boy-Wallet-On-Chain-In-Metallic-Lambskin-2

It’s unbelievable.

A small bag made from leather.

But it’s not just the leather; the finishing details from the corners to the stitches are flawless. The design is so functional, sum that all up and the bag is irresistible.

It’s unbelievable, how can so small conquer our heart.

We have something to share, it’s the Chanel Boy Wallet On Chain. And no, it’s not just another Chanel Boy WOC in different leather and so on, this time it’s a bit different.

While it’s from the WOC Collection, it appears to be more like the Chanel Boy Flap Bag but then in the smallest size. I mean, the flap is longer, but everything is still the same – it’s quilted, I got the CC boy logo on the front and the interwoven chain links.

Then there are more surprises; open it and you will find a small pouch, more like a tiny wallet. Or you can call it – it’s a mini bag inside a mini bag, how cute!

Crafted from Metallic Lambskin, it comes with a removable chain and it can be worn in two ways: on your shoulder or as wristlet. Not only is it effortless but also multifunctional. Great huh!

(Also as a clutch with removable chain, can worn on the shoulder or as wristlet)
Style code: A80382
Size: 4.3 x 7.5 x 1.6

Chanel-Boy-Wallet-On-Chain-In-Metallic-Lambskin-3

I frequently get the question whether the Chanel Boy in WOC will be available in silver hardware. Well, yes it is, for the Fall Winter 2016 Collection it’s in the Classic Black And Silver Hardware. Also crafted from Metallic Lambskin.

The Chanel Boy WOC are perfect, they are small and beautiful. Ideal to wear for the night-outs and when you are just hanging out with friends. The interior is large enough to hold your essentials.

Rebecca Minkoff Heavy Laced Bags at Saks Fifth Avenue

Rebecca Minkoff Heavy Laced Bags at Saks Fifth Avenue

Rebecca Minkoff just released the Heavy Laced handbag collection, exclusively sold at Saks Fifth Avenue stores and online. I have always loved Rebecca Minkoff handbags for a very long time. They are gorgeous and unique and not over-the-top expensive either. The Rebecca Minkoff Heavy Laced Collection is no different. These styles are gorgeous! There is a clutch, a cross body bag and an oversized hobo.

Of the three styles, the oversized hobo is by far my favorite! This bag is everything you would expect from a hobo style. The shape is relaxed, even slouchy, allowing it to hug your body and be one of the most comfortable bags you have ever owned. The leather is soft, but pebbled too. As much as I love buttery soft leather, a little pebbling can go a long way in terms of durability. And, of course, who could forget the fringe? The suede fringe is so lovely on this piece. Raining down from either side, Rebecca Minkoff shows that fringe does not need to envelop an entire bag in order to make a statement. I adore fringe, but I think this piece has a good fringe to leather ratio.

PurseForum Roundup – August 13

Other Brands

Greetings, fashion lovers! Friday has rolled around once again, and that means it’s time for a romp through the halls of the PurseForum to see what our members are sharing, wearing and talking about. This week, Chloé was on our rounds, along with Bottega Veneta and so much more. We really hit the jackpot is some of our subforums, so get comfortable.

Bottega-Veneta-Hobo

Bottega Veneta has been pretty busy this month, and we spotted a shimmery reveal on Page 1 from ksuromax. This gorgeous bag was pre-loved, and as ksuromax and our BV members agree, its wonderful condition is a testament to the quality of this brand.

Bottega-Veneta-Belts

PurseForum regulars know that our member restricter is a supernova in our universe of shopping stars. By any measure, restricter knows how to find a bargain. No matter the brand, she can hit the sample sales and remind us we can all be fabulous for pennies on the dollar. This week we found her latest victory thread inBottega Veneta, and this lovely haul of belts is just the tip of the iceberg.

Also in BV, traumamama started a conversation in June about which color to select for her new bag. Our members chimed in with lots of terrific advice, which you may find helpful for your next bag purchase. Meanwhile, we are still waiting to see what traumamama decided on–stay tuned.

Bottega-Veneta-Tote

And here’s a kitten in a bag. This comes to us from Kandyroxy, and the upshot is that this is a real workhorse bag that is holding up beautifully. Check the thread for the full review of this Cabat, one of BV’s best bags.

Chloe-Marcie-Bag

In Chloé this week, Easterngirl showed us all how it’s done in the Chloé in Action thread. This mini Marcie looks fabulous with this casual style, and our “bag in action” threads are the perfect place to stop for inspiration no matter which designer subforum you drop into.

Chloe-Marcie-Bag-Big

Easterngirl wasn’t the only girl rocking a splendid grey Marcie this week; we also found Swedengirl’s brand new Marcie in a larger size. This is Swedengirl’s first Chloé and she sure made a grand entrance, don’t you think? You can see another cashmere grey Marcie here in sherimehling’s reveal from earlier this summer. Our Chloé subforum has lots of informative threads on the brand’s latest styles, and if you are thinking of adding a Chloé bag to your fall wardrobe (and lots of us are), we hope you will stop by and make use of this resource.

Celine-Twisted-Cabas-Bag

CathyQ stopped traffic in the Céline latest purchases thread with her reveal of this edgy and amazing Twisted Cabas. We cannot wait to see this in action! Visits to the “Latest Purchases” threads provide a perfect itinerary if you are pressed for time and need a purse fix. We always try to make time for these fast-moving threads—you really never know what you will find.

Coach-Red-Hobo

We also love orange and wanted to share this with you all. This yummy bag is part of katev’s reveal threadin Coach this week. Also, if you love this bag, you will absolutely flip over the new wallet.

Louis-Vuitton-New-Packaging

When big brands make big changes, our member notice. In a big way. In Louis Vuitton, fans of the brand are breaking down the new packaging introduced earlier this summer. You can see the new design hereand chime in if you have an opinion on the matter. TAZxSPIN shared her new purchase for us, and members were happy to get a review on the new goods straight from a fellow member!

Louis-Vuitton-Cerise-Monograme

Packaging is one thing but at the PurseForum, bags are THE thing. Norwegianwood put it right up front in her thread title that she was revealing a super cute bag, and this little Pochette in monogram Cherie certainly did not disappoint. Also in LV, Balengirl picked up a new sleek black Spontini on its debut day, and you can see it in her very thorough reveal right here.

Louis-Vuitton-Epi-Bag

We will wrap our visit to Louis Vuitton with Erum7860s brand new Sac Kleber straight from Paris. This structured tote is useful and undeniably elegant, and it’s an exquisite way to celebrate a milestone birthday! Happy Birthday Erum 7860!

That’s it for us! Thank you once again for joining us for another Friday visit to the PurseForum.
