PurseBlog Asks: Which Bags are You Looking for at the Spring 2016 Sales?

Categories:Other Brands

It’s going to be nearly 90 degrees in New York City today, marking the first day of true tank top weather, and I now finally believe that Memorial Day Weekend is now but a few short days away. The calendar has been telling me that for weeks, but I didn’t feel it until just now.

Of course, real fashion lovers know that Memorial Day doesn’t just mean the unofficial start of summer; it also means the kickoff of the spring sale season, which is one of only two times a year when you can get many designers at a significant discount. It’s like if the shopping Olympics happened every six months.

With that in mind, we’ll be scouring the web for the best deals as they come up over the course of the next couple weeks, starting with a complete guide tomorrow. In order to serve you best, dear reader, we need a bit of info: what are you looking for?

Personally, I’m going to be keeping an eye out for Chloé and Fendi bags, like the Chloé Hudson Tassel Shoulder Bag seen above, which is currently marked down to $1,673 from $2,390 at the just-launched farfetch.com sale. Both brands’ bags were pretty scant during last season’s sales, and I have a feeling that they’ll still be prized by many.

So what’s on your shopping list? Let us know in the comments.

Would You Pay $450 for a Kendall + Kylie Handbag?

Categories:Other Brands

You may have heard about Kendall and Kylie Jenners’ recently launched shoe line, aptly named Kendall + Kylie; the youth-focused (but not cheap) collection landed in some huge retailers, including Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. Handbags were conspicuously absent from the mix, especially for two sisters who love them so much, but that won’t be true much longer: Women’s Wear Daily reports that for fall, the sisters’ handbags will debut in stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks.

Many licensed celebrity fashion lines aim for a mass-market price tag, but like the clothes and shoes in the Kendall + Kylie line, the bags will occupy a price range that’s more in line with “contemporary” handbags: $75 to $450, for shapes ranging from clutches to roomier day bags in materials like croc-stamped leather and calf hair. The bag above, which is called the Brooke Mini Satchel, will retail for $295, according to Racked. For comparison’s sake, that’s roughly comparable to brands like Rebecca Minkoff and Botkier.

Although the Jenner sisters are well known for their tastes in designer fashion, their very young fanbases might make handbags on the higher end of their price range less interesting to those who can afford them. Women in the market for a handbag that costs several hundred dollars are likely a bit older than those who look to Kendall and Kylie for style inspiration without feeling self-conscious about it, which could make bags a tougher sell than, say, Kylie’s affordably priced (and notoriously quick-selling) lip kits.
