Olivia Palermo was recently spotted strolling in the West Village of NYC with her mustachioed Swedish man candy Johannes Huebl and a chic, neutral, textured-leather Anya Hindmarch Ebury Soft Tote (sans strap) in grey. You can pick up an attractive tan leather version of the Ebury for $1,417 at FarFetch. Olivia always has an interesting bag on her arm – you can assess the rest of her collection in “The Many Bags of Olivia Palermo”. The Anya Hindmarch Ebury Soft Tote comes with not one, but two optional shoulder straps, one of which matches the bag and one which provides a nice pop of contrasting color. It also has labeled compartments on the inside for “lipstick”, “sunglasses”, and “phone”. I like a bag that organizes my things for me!

Oscar de la Renta is known for so many things – his incredible evening gowns, his flair for the dramatic, his skill with embellishment that is unparalleled in the fashion industry. Over the last couple of seasons, though, de la Renta has also quietly been becoming a source for luxurious, detailed handbags that will fit right in on the arms of the impeccably dressed women who wear his clothing (or, at the very least, dream of wearing it). Many fashion lovers may think of tiny clutches when they think of OdlR’s bags (after all, the designer’s evening wear is consistently breathtaking), but de la Renta can grace your arm during the daylight hours just as effectively. The bags all have a precise, tailored quality that you’d expect from a master like Oscar de la Renta, in addition to the finest materials available and plenty of special details like embellished hardware. That’s a recipe for a sophisticated look no matter the occasion. Below, some of our favorites from Oscar’s Fall 2013 collection. To shop the full selection, head on over to the brand’s official site.

Other than PursBlog’s readers (and writers), perhaps the people who love handbags more than anyone else are rappers, and we’d like to think that somewhere (probably in Paris), Kanye West will be celebrating National Handbag Day along with us tomorrow. If you’ve listened to hip hop radio in the last 10 years, you know exactly what we’re talking about – songwriters seem to shop as much as we do, which is a lot, when you factor in that shopping is our job. Handbags fit perfectly with exactly the kind of post-modern, upwardly mobile braggadocio that rappers traffic in so commonly, which means that, when you get down to it, Jay-Z raps about brands for the same reason that so many people shell out to buy their products. Bags are particularly recognizable and status-laden, and because designer bags have, to some extent, entered the wider American lexicon, rapping about them and carrying them are both supremely effective ways to telegraph to others that you are, in the immortal words of Nene Leakes, very rich. It’s yet another reason to love handbags, even if it’s not a reason everyone’s willing to cop to. There is, predictably, no shame in these rappers’ (and Fergie’s) games. Check out the best sing-along handbag shout-outs below, but be warned: these songs all contain explicit content and may not be appreciated by you, your coworkers, your boss, your parents or your pastor. If you get fired, grounded or sentenced to eternal damnation, well, we warned you. The post Oh You Fancy, Huh? The 12 Best Handbag Name-Checks in Recent Musical History appeared first on PurseBlog.

Watching bags come down the runway is fun, but I always vastly prefer spotting new bags for pre-order to scoping out a fashion show. Even the earliest retail pre-orders, as you might guess, are far more indicative of what consumers can actually expect to see in stores than bags that are included in shows, which, as you guys recently pointed out, are often super weird. Moda Operandi’s revolutionary trunk show concept, which allows the site to offer pre-orders of collections that have debuted as little as a day prior, has forced other retailers to step up their presale options, and for the last few season, Neiman Marcus has responded with a highly edited selection of options. NM’s pre-orders include handbags from brands like Prada, Alexander Wang and Balenciaga, to name a few, and they confirm a few ideas that a month’s worth of runway bags have given us about Spring 2014′s accessory trends. Namely, like colors like ivory and pale pink are going to be everywhere and backpacks have only yet begun to trend. Below, some of our favorite pieces from Neiman Marcus’ selection; you can also head straight over to watch the whole thing. Remember, both Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman are now offering free shipping and free returns on almost all orders!

Here’s Sarah Jessica Parker in NYC with her kids, carrying an as-yet-unreleased Coach Borough Bag. The Borough collection is brand new for Fall 2013 for Coach, and even though it’s not out yet, it should be available soon. This collection has a noticeably more modern and sleek vibe than most other Coach bags of the very recent past, and seems decidedly less, well, Coach-y. While you bide your time waiting for this invigorating new collection to drop, you can shop Coach online, of course. The Purseblog team should have more info about the Borough collection available to our readers on the blog next week! Coach has done an extremely skillful job placing these new bags in the hands of the right celebs thus far: Karlie Kloss, Lea Michele and model Liu Wen have all recently been seen carrying bags from the Borough line. There’s scarcely a better way to drum up excitement for a new line of bags, and we’re excited. The post Sarah Jessica Parker Carries the Brand New Coach Borough Bag appeared first on PurseBlog.

Remember the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” It was innovative at the time because it blurred the lines between real and cartoon characters. A new handbag line is kinda sorta doing the same thing. I recently spotted a girl walking down the street with a bag that looked like a cartoon cutout – but it was a real bag! I stopped her to get more information about the bag – and a closer look. The line is called JumpFromPaper™ and the website describes it as “a playful and innovative line of bags” with “cartoon-like outlines and bright and cheerful colors”. Created by Taipei-based duo, Chay Su and Rika Lin, the collection came about when they were sketching one afternoon and thought “How amazing it would be if a two-dimensional hand-drawn illustration could come to life as a real bag?!” Rapper Eve, who’s always on the forefront of fashion, posted a pic on Instagram posing with her hot pink “First Date” cartoon bag by JumpFromPaper. She was heading to the 10th Annual Stand Up For Skateparks Benefiting The Tony Hawk Foundation in Beverly Hills, California, dressed in a black dress, Monika Chiang Artemys Sneakers and the JumpFromPaper bag. What do you think of the bag? See more JumpFromPaper bags after the jump: Photo: Eve’s Instagram Get more Handbag du Jour – Follow us on Twitter and ‘Like’ us on Facebook!
