Saint Laurent Monogram Quilted Leather Crossbody Bag in Black
Size: 7.5” x 5” x 1.2” inches
Price: $908 USD

Hello, ladies! Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Saint Laurent line of Monogram Black Chain bags and clutches! If you’re pretty much a Saint Laurent girl, then you’ll love these pieces (we’re swooning here). Here, we have an array of colors and designs you can choose from, but there’s a certain design element that’s common to all pieces – the black chain and monogram. Very luxe, eh? We’ve been accustomed to the metallic glitz of gold and silver hardware, but there’s something about black hardware that we couldn’t really put a finger on. It makes any piece slick and dapper, without going overboard with masculinity.

Prabal Gurung Fall 2015 Collection: The Heat of the Moment


Prabal Gurung Fall 2015 Collection: The Heat of the Moment

As a designer, you will for that shining moment, the one when your roar rings louder than any other. Last night produced such an occasion for Prabal Gurung. From his voluminous layers of furs to the soft, quietly body-skimming dresses, this is by far the best collection I’ve ever had the pleasure of witnessing from the quiet and enigmatic Nepalese designer. There have been seasons (ahem, Spring ’15) when the clothes didn’t feel entirely right, but not this time. This is a collection brimming with pieces you can literally take right off the runway and wear out.

The pieces could almost be called minimal, as it’s all relative, save for Prabal’s flair for the decadent, deliciously subtle as it feels. Sumptuous shades of dove gray and buttercream yellow, touchable fabrics of silk crepe and cashmere, and lambskin leather galore: the overall effect is as soothing as it is stirring. So was seeing the selection of models; appearances by 30- and 40-something greats like Kirsty Hume and Frankie Rayder made for a sensational surprise. Prabal is also playing with new shapes. “I’ve realized a dress can still be sexy without being skintight,” he said. Likewise! The high diagonal slits, some complemented by broad pleats, are sensual without being pushily so. Languid, spaghetti-strapped slipdresses that tease with the prospect of drifting off the body (the nip slip might have to be embraced come fall) feel so much sexier than their aggressively body-conscious cousins.

Especially paired with architectural T-strap pumps and that fur, an outdoorsy-inspired take on uptown-chic mink and fox, for a juxtaposition of tufts and textures. Indeed, it’s that dissension that heightens the energy levels. Pitting delicate lace, crystals, and jet beading against naturalistic animal prints, like snow leopard, and Fair Isle-motif knits is the kind of clash I like to see. Speaking of which, as much as fashion is founded on the visual, Prabal knows it’s also about being heard. I can announce with confidence now that he has found his voice. Now hear him roar.

Katy Perry Looks Holiday-Chic In H&M’s New Campaign


Are you ready for the holiday season? Well, if there’s someone who’s definitely ready, that’s Katy Perry. The 31-year-old singer has teamed up with the world famous Swedish fashion retailer getting all holiday-chic in H&M’s newest campaign. Already can’t wait to get your hands on those lovely holiday pieces? Check out H&M’s website and shop your favorites!

Katy Perry for H&M Holiday 2015 Campaign

Wearing H&M’s Christmas offerings, which include some cute flared skirts andChristmas sweaters (just wait and see the ‘Elfie Selfie’ one, it’s insanely lovely) in the perfect Perry style we all know, the renowned singer is photographed by Jonas Åkerlund cuddling up to candy canes and life-sized gingerbread men and nutcrackers soldiers. H&M’s holiday 2015 campaign also features some tuxedo jackets and fringed skirts, which means that we are about to see a well-balanced mixture of tailored and casual pieces, perfect both for our upcoming formal and casual events.

Perry, who has always been a fan of H&M, recently shared her excitement about the collaboration stating: ” I had such a festive time shooting this larger-than-life holiday commercial with Jonas Åkerlund, and all of the fun clothes, especially my favorite, the Elfie Selfie sweater. H&M was one of the places where I first began cultivating my personal style. I have continued to love integrating H&M pieces into my wardrobe throughout the years. One of the reasons I love the holidays is being able to dress cozy and cute, which H&M executes so well for every budget. I can’t wait for you to see the world we created with Jonas Åkerlund and Dan Jackson.”

H&M’s headquarters are also enthusiastic about this collaboration, which also must have meant a lot of work, given the fact that the campaign was revealed only a few days later from the Balmain x H&M latest partnership. Thanks to Perry’s popularity, however, the fashion house could just have had its ultimate collaboration (the American singer, besides being highly popular on the main social media, is also the highest paid woman in the music industry according to Forbes).

“We are so thrilled that Katy Perry will star in our campaign this holiday season. We love everything about Katy, from her incredible talent and energy to her playful sense of personal style.” says Pernilla Wohlfarht, H&M’s head of design.

However, the Katy Perry x H&M collaboration is not down yet with the surprises. The collection, which is going to be available in stores worldwide from about mid-November, features Katy Perry’s first Christmas song ever, which is going to debut on Monday, November 23. Although it might seem to be ‘just’ a television advert song, it is a real life opportunity for Perry, whose song will thus officially enter the imperishable world of Christmas melodies.

“It’s every artists dream to have their own Christmas song, and starring in the H&M campaign gave me the perfect opportunity. Every Day Is A Holiday is big, bold, epic and unashamedly fun, just like Christmas should be.”

Last but not least, H&M’s holiday 2015 season will include some philanthropic work too. Selling any designed gift card, the H&M Conscious Foundation will donate 5% of the proceeds to UNICEF, which consequently will help children in need in Myanmar to get a better education.

PurseForum Roundup – November 13

Other Brands


Happy Friday, Roundup readers. Friday the 13th is never unlucky when there are purses and shoes to enjoy over at the PurseForum, right? And indeed, you are in luck, because this week, Mulberry, Dior and the Jewelry Box topped our list of stops. Of course, there is always more, so get comfortable!


We stopped off in Mulberry this week after a long absence and found this pretty Bayswater had arrived just in time to cheer up an under-the-weather Izzy48. Jackiepoon is considering a Bayswater purchase this month, and the Should I Buy a Bayswater thread is a pretty good primer if you are considering a purchase, too. Our members are always ready to lend a hand when it comes to a bag purchase, and we love them for it.


Also in Mulberry, Loulibelle had a little something different to share from the brand, and while it is not a purse, it still put a smile on our faces. Cute shirt!


In the Jewelry Box, a thread with the title “Sharing my Excitement” is bound to be wonderful, and CrystalDreamer’s new Ceylon sapphire certainly is that. This unique ring has a special quality you will not want to miss, so do drop in the Jewelry box to see this and heaps more brilliant bling. Heaps!


We have noticed that on the PurseForum, the question “which one should I keep?” usually is answered, “Keep both.” If you want to see what we mean, check into 99daffodils’ thread in the Jewelry Box. We stand in solidarity with our PurseForum family and agree–keep both!

Our Jewelry subforums are world-class showcases of the most incredible jewelry, and they’re definitely worth a peek.


Over in Arts and Crafts, we paid a visit to our thread dedicated to the phenomenally popular (and extremely soothing) adult coloring book movement. We loved this mandala fish mashup from Sugarstained, who chose colored pencils as her medium. If you haven’t tried this relaxing way to while away the time, drop into this thread to get up to speed on the best books and mediums to get you started.


We couldn’t resist sharing this find with you, too. Last week we had a look a the ValentinoGlam Lock, and this week, while enjoying some time with the gang in Mulberry, we stumbled across this bi-color Glam Lock in the Non-Mulberry purchases thread. We know you love the “cheating on your favorite brand” threads as much as we do, and we thought this was a must-see for all you Valentino fans. Thanks for sharing, LoveHeart!


And speaking of color, look what we found in the New Miss Dior Promenade thread this week: Leooh chose this terrific teal for the pouch, and we love it. This nice shade will be a handy pop of color in any season, and it’s just the first of several member reveals in this informative thread. Rowy65 was not far behind with her pretty, peachy-pink selection, and the reveals just keep coming in this fast-moving thread.


The “your bag in action” genre of PurseForum conversations is one of our favorites because seeing our members styling their bags really speaks to the heart of what PurseForum is all about–expressing our style. The Diors in Action thread always has lovely action shots, andthis one from diana27arvi really struck a chord with us. The Lady Dior is often thought of as such a structured, iconically formal bag, but this fun ensemble and playful pose really rings our bell: a true expression of individual style, indeed!


Ahhh, the SLG! Small Leather Goods are the points of entry for shoppers at so many brands–the little jewels that steal our hearts and bring us back in for the bags later on. This sweet cardcase from Goyard is brought to us by ems1198, and we agree that this tiny ambassador of the brand is a great way to start! SunkistCaliKid also shared a nice reveal in Goyard this week; highlights include a sharp Senat MM that is a perfect way to tote documents in high style.


We were happy to spot an Anjou Reversable Tote this week; our members have been eyeing this line for some time, and this week we noticed Winwin123’s reveal from earlier in October.This really is a sharp idea, and we love the convenience of two totes in one.

That’s it for this week. These weekly roundups hit some highlights but barely scratch the surface of what goes on at the PurseForum. Our little home-away-from-home is, as our members well know, about so much more than fashion. Our members gather to discuss celebrities, work and career, health and fitness, relationships and everything else under the sun. We hope to see you there!

Here at BragMyBag, we know how important it is to put your best foot forward and strengthen your designer bag game with some tips and tricks. At times, it’s not enough to sport a pricey piece and let it garner attention on its own (especially if most of the bags in your collection are subdued, when you’re a so-called “Basic B”) – but not to worry, there are ways to spruce up a boring bag. Adding a few charms could help – and today, we’re going to talk about the Fendi Furry Alphabet Charms. These cute baubles are a steal!

The bag charms come in luxe fox fur, which bear the letter of your choice (there are, in fact, twenty-six of ‘em, so you’re never gonna run out). It is fastened to a palladium spring clip with a Fendi logo tag, and is perfect as a keyring or bag charm. Imagine all the possibilities you can come up with your furry friend! You can even go all-out and have more than one charm hanging – try to be outrageous and creative and spell out a word with these balls of fluff.

All of the charms in the collection are priced at $600 USD or €470 EUR. Catch all twenty-six via Fendi e-store now!

Best Bet: Elizabeth and James Cynnie Nano Bag

Other Brands

Elizabeth and James Cynnie Nano Shearling Bag

We feature bag deals every Friday finding the best bags marked down on the web. But there are many bags that aren’t on sale, they are just well-priced and designed nicely so we call these a best bet. Today I stumbled upon the Elizabeth and James Cynnie Nano Bagwhen scrolling through new arrivals on Net-A-Porter and the bag stopped me mid-scroll.

I would’t say I always think of Elizabeth and James when it comes to bags, but this bag is lovely and I found myself entirely intrigued by it from first sight. The compact size, white color, material combination, and price tag of only $235 makes this bag a best bet and then some.

The white textured leather is paired with ivory shearling and while that combo seems like it could be harsh, it is anything but. The overall dimensions aren’t big and the interior will fit just the essentials – think cell phone, keys and cards. There is a long shoulder strap that allows for crossbody wear and with fall upon us, this little bag will stand out against your autumnal hues. I not only love the style but I love the price!
