Destination Europe

Our design team has jumped across the pond to Europe where they are currently searching for  leathers, materials and hardware for future Brahmin collections. The team attended Lineapelle, an international leather exhibition held in Milan; where they sought out beautiful new materials and design concepts. Of course wearing her Brahmin- one of our lead designers, Natalie, captured some pics of her Violet Cusco Norah Hobo in action on the streets of Italy.

After spending some time in Milan, the team has continued their journey to the beautiful city of Paris. We can't wait to see what they have in store for us once they return! In the meantime we have to say... we love Natalie's take on snake! Her shoes and bag definitely add the perfect  touch of exotic to her style.

Sweet Street Style

Our Arden Satchel in Papaya Abbot was seen all over New York Fashion week, carried by the lovely Rachael from the Fashion blog Everything Hauler. We just love how she styled the bag! 

Such beautiful pictures and outfits! We like how Rachael paired the bag with black & white and a bright yellow hue, showing just how versatile the bag can be. The Papaya Abbot and the Rose Gold Bennington are both great neutral combinations that can be worn with most anything. 

Have a great weekend!

Share Your Style

In the northeast the weather has cooled down ever so slightly. Just enough to want to grab that extra sweater or light jacket on your way out the door in the morning. Is it just us or does the noticeable change in temperature make you immediately want to go to your favorite store to purchase new fall-wear so you're prepared to take on the season? We know we're not the only ones! As you transition your style to Fall, keep sharing your pictures with us! We love seeing your Brahmin bags + fall style! Just don't forget to hashtag #MyBrahminFall. We will continue to select winners to receive special Brahmin prizes!

Happy Friday!

Looks We Love

This week's Looks We Love come straight from the streets of New York City, where some of our favorite fashion friends styled their Brahmin bags along with their incredible outfits. Here are a few looks we love:

Blogger Sheryl Luke of A Walk in Wonderland crossed the Brooklyn Bridge wearing a black pleated midi skirt, graphic tee, sweet slip on shoes and her Brahmin Vivian Satchel in Vermillion la scala. The rich orange-red hue brought the perfect pop of color to her black and white look.

Mixing prints isn't always easy, but Sydne Summer mastered the look here in her New York Fashion Week outfit. We absolutely love her style and feel her Black Java Vivian Satchel is the perfect accessory to complement the different prints and patterns of her skirt and shirt. It just goes to show- when in doubt, black and white is always right!

Celebrity Stylist Salvador Camarena looked amazing carrying our Frankie Tote!  Over the weekend we had the pleasure of running into Sal who told us the tote is great for traveling and for carrying everything he needs to get through his busy days at Fashion Week. We love the styling versatility of the tote- it looks great with everything he wears!

Jess Kirby paired our Large Duxbury Satchel in Tortoise Seville with a beautiful two-toned ombre pleated skirt. We loved this unexpected pairing- the brown snake looks so nice with the colors of her outfit, proving that snake print can be a neutral with nearly any hue.

There were so many amazing outfits from New York Fashion Week that it was hard to choose today's Looks We Love. We will continue posting outfits and recaps from the week so stay tuned!

Fall for Fur

Talk about timeless style... people have been wearing fur since the dawn of time. Its warmth, durability and luxe feel are all huge reasons for sporting the look. No matter real or faux; fur of any kind is a cool-weather necessity. Owning a single piece of this ultra-soft texture can instantly upgrade your fall to winter wardrobe.

 Here are six chic ways to wear

Don't be afraid to go all in. Like we said, the fur trend has been around since... well forever, and will remain a timeless style for years to come. If you live in a cold winter climate, do not shy away from investing in an over-the-top fur jacket, stole or scarf. You will make a statement and stay incredibly warm- it's a win, win. 

Fashion icons throughout the world have made major statements in fur. First lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis looks sophisticated chic in a leopard print jacket and black gloves. 

Fur vests are another piece of fashion history that is still very much relevant today. Your favorite sweater or long-sleeved dress that you repeatedly wear? Throw on an oversized fur vest for an entirely new look; an easy way to take your already favorite wardrobe staple to a whole new level.

Hopefully our post has inspired you to mix a fur into your style! You can always start with a fur or hair-on bag like one of these here.

Have a great day!

Looks We Love

Each week we search through blogs, Instagram and Facebook to find posts from Brahmin fans highlighting their unique style and love for Brahmin bags. This week we fell in love with Meagan's two chic looks featuring her Large Duxbury Satchel in Tortoise Seville.

Coral paired with earthtones may be pushing the envelope for some (yes! mixing camo green and coral can look good together!) but we absolutely love the way Meagan mixed her hues in this style. Her bag ties the look together so well with the rich tones of Tortoise Seville. 

Who knew a white button down with jeans could take on a totally different look when paired with our bag? The simplicity of the combination makes the satchel pop, adding a whole new element to the outfit. Add on the hat, glasses and chunky heels and you've got instant effortless cool. 

Thanks for reading this week's Look We Love! Happy Hump day :) 

P.S. The Duxbury Satchel in Tortoise Seville is currently sold out online but is available in these great textures and hues.
