Our Oscars Best Dressed List

This morning, our office was abuzz with Oscars chit chat. Gasping over the biggest envelope mistake of all time and of course, rehashing all of our favorite red carpet looks. (After all, the Oscars are all about the dress, no?) 

In looking through our favorite picks, there are some definite trends that emerge: golden gowns and a few punches of color, plunging necklines, cinched waists, dramatic draping, and a whole lot of bling. Read on to see our swoon-worthy selections, and be sure to tell us your favorites in the comments below!

Spring Behind The Scenes

There’s something about palm trees that instantly puts us in vacation mode. Are you dreaming of warm destinations on this February day, too? Our team hit the streets of LA for our Spring photo shoot, and today we are taking you along with us - lucky you!  You have seen some of the beautiful styles from our Spring collection make their debut (if not, shop here), and now we are pulling back the curtain a little to give you a behind the scenes glimpse into the season.

We had a blast shooting, and you can tell from these photos that our models and style star Louise Roe did, too. Gorgeous handbags paired with gorgeous weather…what’s not to love?

Naples Winter Wine Festival

This January, Brahmin was proud to be a part of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, an exciting multi-day event hosted each year by the Naples Children and Education Foundation where 100% of proceeds are all for the kids. Since the foundation's inception in 2001, the festival has raised over $161 million dollars for underserved children in Florida's Collier County. (So amazing!)

One of the event's highlights was a live silent auction where guests bid on extravagant prizes ranging from rare wine varietals to luxe trips for two across the globe. To add to the excitement of the silent auction, Brahmin donated Thelma Totes for each of the guests to take home with them. This year, the event raised $15 million dollars for the county's children- a record breaking amount! Congratulations to everyone who helped make this event so successful and thank you for allowing us to take part!

Brahmin x Louise Roe

This season we are SO excited to announce that we have teamed up with one of our favorite Fashion It Girls and author of Front Roe, Louise Roe to get the latest on Spring trends, helpful styling tips and of course- her thoughts on our new collection. For those of you who don't know Louise, the first thing to note is that she is a style expert. She has spent years in the industry as a Fashion Journalist and TV personality. She has written a style guide Front Roe: How to be the leading lady in your own life and you may have even seen her at this year's Golden Globes, on the red carpet interviewing some of Hollywood's biggest stars. We were beyond thrilled to spend the day with Louise in LA on set of our Spring photo shoot.

"Accessories, in my opinion are even more important than your clothes. They make a statement, they are eye-catching, a way to try out a bold new trend."

We asked Louise to pick some of her favorite handbags from our Spring Collection. She was immediately drawn to the handcrafted details, like the intricate whipstitching and playful tassel featured in our Pearl Summer Dalton collection. She also loved the smooth, luxe leather of the Eva Hobo in Tan Knoxville . See some of her favorite bags below and shop them all here. 

We had such an amazing day working with Louise! Not only does she have an incredible sense of style, she makes fashion fun and had us all laughing throughout the entire shoot. Check out some candid behind the scenes moments below

Stay tuned for more Spring style and fashion tips! Louise is our style expert for the season and we can't wait to show you more. You may even catch her on the red carpet at the Oscars in a few weeks. (PS- We can't wait to see what she wears!)

A Fresh Perspective

It's never too early to start thinking about the season ahead, and what better way to plan your Spring wardrobe than starting with a fresh new handbag. This season we continued to push the boundaries in texture, leather and craft. We've added of-the-moment details and playful accents for a little something extra. Now is the perfect time to try new things and transition from Winter's dark hues to something more vibrant. Pastels play a starring role in our color palette. Soft blues, yellows and peach pave the way to warmer days and our popular Moonstone Seville (pictured above), is our latest take on leather embossed snake with a unique opalescent sheen. This is just the beginning, there is so much more you have to see.

See all of our just-added new styles here or shop our latest Catalog.

3...2...1...

Happy (almost) new year! With 2017 just hours away, we are preparing to ring in the new year with our newest collection.

In classic black leather with edgy studs, we think our Black Nara collection is perfect for any New Year’s Eve fete you may have planned. A suede tassel is the cherry on top.

If you are looking for a clutch to complete your little black dress, make sure you have the Lily in Black Amida in your hand at midnight (we promise all eyes will be on you).

Whatever your plans may be, celebrate with Brahmin when the clock strikes 12. Wishing you all the best in 2017!

New Year, New Arrivals

We are always a little sad to see the holidays end, but we have just the thing to lift your post-holiday blues – new arrivals! Our newest collection is filled with geometric black and white colorblocking, studded accents, and a pop of pink…perfect to wear now and seamlessly transition to the season ahead. 

We say there is no better way to start the new year off with a new handbag or two. Are we right?
