Purse Forum Roundup 14

Other Brands

Happy mid-July! Summer is flying by, and it’s already time for another roundup of the week’s happenings at the PurseForum. This week, we bring you some instant reveals from around the forum, and take a closer look at Bottega Veneta, Dior, Coach, and more. Thanks for joining us!

New sunglasses for summer! How many of us kick off summer with a shiny new pair of shades? Frienziedhandbag lived up to her name this week in Bottega Veneta and picked up several wonderful items to add to her collection. We love the new sunnies, and ooooh, the case! Visit this thread to see more, and be sure to appreciate the exquisite leather detailing on the glasses. We also are happy to share in frienzied’s good news, a reminder that PurseForum is much more than bags.

Ksuromax revealed this stunning Petro Cabat this week; this classic bag is one of our favorites. Be sure not to miss Orlie’s new addition, too,a delicious shoulder bag in glimmering coffee-colored leather, selected with the help of our fabulous ladies and gents in the BV forum.

Miss_Dawn shared this terrific Gucci Disco last month, and we missed it, so it was fortunate that it popped up on page one again today. The bicolor construction gives this bag a fresh take on an already perfect look.  Huskylady17 also went with a shoulder bag style for her latest purchase, picked up with assistance of a helpful sales associate on the lookout for great deals.

MaegUT07 visited Rome recently, and of course had to bring home a little something from the Gucci ancestral homeland. This is the Signature Padlock, a new classic for Gucci and a gorgeous souvenir! By the way, someone has been bumping up instant reveals in Gucci, so if you are in the mood to see some new bags in a hurry, we have you covered.

Coach’s collaborations have been getting a lot of attention, and the pull toward these fun bags is undeniable. K.E.W. felt the attraction for the second time and snapped up this black tote from the Keith Haring/Coach collection. K.E.W. included plenty of close-up shots to give us an idea of the interior space and construction details of her new bag, so be sure to visit her thread for the full story on her new purchase. We have more discussion on this rather under-the-radar collection now, but if you are interested, contact your sales associate soon.

It’s summer sale time at Coach (and all over), so be sure you take in the sights—maybe you will find something that you cannot live without. Jennstall made a couple of purchases, and shared them with us here.

Last up from Coach, we love the absolute simplicity of this smooshy new Bandit Hobo from Teagaggle. The leather looks absolutely scrumptious, and the style is eternally useful.

This week in Dior, our members were on the road and took some time out to share with us what they have picked up on their trips. In New York, fashion_junky visited the flagship boutique and brought home this Lady Dior in a subtle and beautiful color aptly called Pistacio. This picture-heavy thread will give you a great idea of what this bag is all about, including the extra-special shoulder strap.

Another happy travel-meets-bag story comes to us from Spain and our member raspberrypink, who is delighted with her new scarlet Lady Dior. You can visit her thread to see more photographs, including one with the studded version of this bag for comparison.

Also in Dior, Vespa_Girl has created a super thread on her experience having her bag professionally dyed. This is a terrifying process to some of us purse lovers, but in Vespa’s case, the results certainly tell a story of success. This thread is worth bookmarking, because who among us does not have a bag that needs some TLC?

Ok, let’s close with some random reveals from around the forum this week…

This City bag is fabulous as decor, too! This is Vanessa84s first Balenciaga—congratulations on a marvelous selection for your first.

This is from a while back, but it was so adorable we couldn’t resist. Designers are showering us with tiny bags, and their functionality is always a question for lovers of big bags. We found this little gem in a discussion on Mansur Gavriel’s entry into the mini bag game, and our members are finding them very functional.

Nana61256 got a sweet Little Babe from Kate Spade and shared in the Show us Your Kate Spade bags thread.

We have always loved the look of Proenza Schouler’s PS1 for a go-to to take to work or on the road. Ltbag’s brand new large PS1 is just the ticket.

Admittedly, when we think of Burberry, we don’t think of bags, but this is a lovely, understated design that looks like a great wardrobe staple. Congratulations greenapple03 on your first Burberry bag.

That’s all for today, friends. We are so grateful to you for spending time with us, and we hope to see you right here next week for more. Have a delightful weekend, enjoy yourselves thoroughly, and we wish you a great week ahead—perhaps some honey toast with ice cream for Sunday breakfast will kick that off nicely? You can thank GeorgiaLavender in the I Ate This thread The Kitchen for that eyepopping suggestion. Be well!

GUINEVERE VAN SEENUS ON NOT LOOKING LIKE A TYPICAL MODEL

In her interview, Guinevere talks about not having the typical measurements of a fashion model.”[It’s] a reality check; I don’t walk through the world with people assuming that I’m a model, especially because the type of work that I do isn’t in people’s faces. I’ve had many times where I walk on set and people tell me where I can set up my makeup, or assume that I’m the journalist, the stylist, the hairdresser, the photographer… I get [mistaken for] almost everyone except the model.”

Erdem x H&M is the Next Huge Fashion Collaboration

Fashion

The next huge collaboration in the fashion world is between London-based designer Erdemand the streetwear brand H&M. The designer who dresses up many celebrities such as Alexa Chung, Kate Middleton, Keira Knightley and Claire Foy is the next one in a row to design for the Swedish brand. Erdem Moralioglu founded his eponymous brand in 2005, and since then he’s been leaving people breathless with his extraordinary talent. With this collaboration, the red carpet dresses that we are all dreaming about, are going to be one step closer to everyone.

“I am so happy to collaborate with H&M and to explore my work on a whole new scale, including a menswear collection which I have never done before. It’s also such a thrill to work with Baz Luhrmann, one of the most important storytellers of our time.”- Moralioglu expressed his satisfaction in a press release.

Erdem X H&M is the Next Huge Fashion Collaboration 2

The famous director Baz Luhman is going to create a short movie to promote the collection. Luhman is the face behind many iconic films such as “The Great Gatsby”, and “Moulin Rouge”. Together with the announcement, the Swedish brand released a short teaser, directed by the great Baz, giving us a small hint of what we should expect.

“For me, fashion is always about more than just clothing, it is a form of expression – a standalone art form. I am excited to be collaborating with Erdem and H&M to reveal the story of this unique collection.”- says Luhman.

From what we could see in the teaser, the collection will feature Erdem’s recognizable feminine vibe. The modern and romantic silhouettes will probably be present again, together with the floral print. Now we can all put our hands on Erdem’s show-stopping designs for affordable prices. This will be the first time for the designer to introduce menswear. The men’s designs are expected to be as contemporary as the women’s. In the video, you could see a stylish man’s silk pajama floral suit.

“The collection reinterprets some of the codes that have defined my work over the past decade. It’s also inspired by much of my youth, from the English films, 90’s TV shows and music videos I grew up watching to memories of the style that defined members of my family. Taking from these inspirations I imagined a group of characters and friends off to the English countryside for the weekend. There’s a real play in the collection between something decidedly dressed-up and equally effortless”- says Moralioglu.

Ann-Sofie Johansson, the creative advisor of H&M will also be joining the dynamic duo. Ann-Sophie is excited to work with the two amazingly talented geniuses. She is a huge supporter of Erdem’s work and is captivated by his whimsical and rich designs.

“From the moment we started talking with Erdem about the collaboration, I was captured by his vision. For ERDEM x H&M he has created an enchanting world full of beauty, delicacy and rich details. These are special pieces you will want to wear forever. He’s a perfectionist and challenging at the same time. He knows exactly what he wants: The lace should look like this!”- says Ann-Sofie Johansson.

Erdem X H&M is the Next Huge Fashion Collaboration

The Erdem x H&M line will be available starting from November 2. It will launch in 66 countries and will be available online. Until then, we can only enjoy the short teaser video and fantasize about all of the amazing pieces that we will get to buy. H&M is one of the rare brands that introduces high-end collaborations with luxury clothing brands such as Kenzo, Versace, Balmain, Rei Kawakubo, Stella McCartney, Jimmy Choo and more. With these efforts, the Swedish brand makes a huge difference for everyone out there that can’t afford to buy expensive clothing. The collections are always very affordable and they sell in a record time.

Erdem X H&M is the Next Huge Fashion Collaboration

“Seriously, though, I’ve seen it as something which is the opposite of what you’d associate with fast-fashion. I want it to be pieces you’ll be wearing in 10 years time, as women do with my own clothes.”- says Erdem for Vogue.

SOPHIE TURNER ON LIVING IN LA

In her interview, Sophie opens up about working in Los Angeles as a British actress. “I have a lot of friends who were brought up in the UK like me [who] are working in LA as actors. When I go over, I’m giving them s–t and being sarcastic. They’re like, ‘Thank god.’ They’re stuck in this place where everyone is so far up your a–e. It’s a business town, it’s understandable. But sometimes you just need someone to tell you that you’re not a f—ing superstar.”
