The Art Of Giving: How To Pick Designer Handbags For Others

Posted By Isabella Rosso on Mar 6, 2012 at 11:29AM


It is hard to pick out bags for others, especially when you don’t really know what they’re into. Frankly, I prefer it when people just tell me exactly what they want! Fortunately for you, while trends may come and go, classic bags never go out of style. That makes them the safe bet when it comes to giving bags.

You’ll probably recognize a few of my suggestions, even if you aren’t a bag aficionado. They are classic after all! Let’s start with the Chanel classic black flap bag with gold chain. These bags are famous for their stunning quilted leather and the stunning contrast of black and gold. You need to look closely to spot the clasp – it’s tucked in between the two ‘C’s in the Chanel insignia.

The same leather and the clasp appear here in this Chanel quilted leather tote with a small flap. Big round cowhide handles, dangling CC charms and a linked gold chain make this a bag anyone would love to receive. Believe it or not, my sister owns this bag! She loves it.

If your sis is a little bit more of a colorful character, let me suggest this large Gucci Soho Hobo bag in red. The interlocking ‘G’ symbol is Gucci’s answer to the Chanel ‘CC’ insignia, and I think it looks amazing. But the best thing about this bag has to be its amazing shape. The bag curls up at either end to do the work of the strap. This makes the bag much roomier that it appears, and I think it’s just plain cool!

Some classic designer handbags almost look as if they’re from the future! This crossbody pouchette from Marc Jacobs is one your young sister will love. The dark trim does wonders for the off-white leather, but for me, the best part is what’s inside. Check out the pictures at PV to see for yourself – it looks like alphabet soup!

Okay, last one, and it’s a goodie. This Prada tote is so beautiful; I guarantee your sister would be blown away. It has top handles and a shoulder strap, but really it’s the bag’s contours that set it apart. The two front zippered pockets create the unique lines that made this bag world-famous. I think this one is the best of the bunch.

If you give one of these bags, you’ll get all the little extras too, including a care book, authenticity card, box and dust jacket, which makes it so much better than just handing someone a bag.

What do you think of the Louis Vuitton Watercolor Speedy?

Posted By jen22 on Mar 19, 2008 at 2:47PM

First and foremost, much of the information on this new bag from Louis Vuitton is still not set-in-stone nor is anyone 100% sure of the truth behind it all. We have all heard conflicting stories, information, prices, release dates, etc. But you know a bag is a sure hit when the rumors begin (sick but true!). Richard Prince collaborated with Marc Jacobs to design artistic bags for the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 line. The hottest item right now is the Louis Vuitton Watercolor Speedy which is said to be released in the US on May 1,2008. The release date has been changed numerous amounts of times. Another piece of information that everyone is uncertain of is the price. The early look book says the bag will be $1,185 but I have heard prices going up to $1,600. My wonderful SA at Bal Harbour did some research and believes it will be around $1,300. The next piece of information that has many confused is the size. While the Louis Vuitton Speedy is available in a size 30 and 35, this bag is said to only come in size 35. The monogram pattern is designed in a manner that has the orange, red, and yellow paints looking like they were painted on with watercolor paint. This bag has an incredibly long wait list at many stores and the masses are clamoring to get the next ‘big’ Speedy. The price is said to be around $1,300 via your local LV boutique when available. You can always check eLuxury also.

Bottega Veneta Vernis Envelope Clutch (The Bag Snob)

Posted By jen22 on Oct 13, 2007 at 1:54PM

The ultimate in lady like chic, this clutch can also fill in when your alter ego, Samantha Jones, comes out to play. This adorable and uber chic clutch will go from day to night, good girl to bad girl and everywhere in between. The combination of the envelope style with woven leather is a pure classic but the patent and shape adds fun and sex appeal making it an all around perfect bag. It is on the small side as far as clutches go these days but it is enough for your traditional clutch essentials, phone, credit cards, driver's license, compact and lip gloss. I look forward to the outing where that is all I need! It is so liberating to ditch my giant tote. And having this precious clutch means I will plan for more of those type of events. If Tina and I lived in the same city we would be borrowing this from each other non stop but since we don't it looks like we will each need to get our own. At Bottega Veneta online for $880.

Hermes Spring 2008 (The Bag Snob)

Posted By jen22 on Oct 13, 2007 at 1:48PM

HAC in 32cm

Crocodile Birkin in 35cm

Indigo ostrich HAC in 28cm

Check out the crocodile birkins and HAC bags on the Hermes Spring 2008 runway, can you tell which is which? For those of you who are not Hermes aficionados, HAC (Haut a Courrois) was the original "birkin" before Jane Birkin complained it was too tall to fit under her airplane seat and the handles too small to properly tote on her arm. They shortened and elongated the bag, made the handles longer and called it a Birkin et voila, an instant icon. Here is how you can tell the difference, the HAC handles are tiny and the body is long as opposed to wide, all very subtle differences but a trained eye can spot them a mile a way. They also cost less than the birkin and are much easier to come by.
