October Issues

No sooner than we finished flipping through our hefty September fashion magazines did our October issues arrive in our mailboxes. Brahmin made headlines again in this coming month’s magazines, and we are thrilled to share these editor picks with you.

Our Sonny has been the it silhouette of fall, and Harper’s Bazaar selected this style in Black Charleston as a fall must. In the softest leather in classic black, we agree that this will be a closet staple for years to come.

InStyle declared texture a fall wardrobe essential, and our Carina in Stone Carlisle has texture in spades.

Glamour gets wild this month and is feeling all things snakeskin, especially our Lily Clutch in Brown Tyndale.

We highly recommend spending the first weekend of fall cozied up with a cup of coffee and a magazine or two…

Ready for the shows with @sydnesummer

The most fashionable week in NYC has come to a close, and we are still reeling over our favorite looks for this coming spring that walked the runway. With trends like seaside stripes, vibrant yellows, cinched waists, and off the shoulder silhouettes and cutouts, can we confess that we are already looking forward to spring?

We also couldn’t help but notice the many Brahmin handbags spotted on the streets. Industry insiders running from show to show confirmed what we already knew to be true: NYFW requires Brahmin by your side.  Here are a few of some of our favorite looks:

Leopard Is A (Fall) Neutral

We prescribe to the notion that leopard is a neutral, and this fashion fact rings especially true in fall. We are already imagining all the ways we will wear the Creme Surrey collection, adding a pop of leopard in luxe calf hair to our ensembles. Whether as a wild element for a little black dress on date night or slightly more subtle inside a black handbag for a coffee run, we want to incorporate leopard into everything we wear. 

Shop the collection here: Lily clutch, Suri wallet

Blogger Spotlight on the Priscilla

We pulled back the curtain and shared the design inspiration for the Priscilla last week, and today you will see this satchel in action as styled by Sheryl Luke of Walk in Wonderland. It’s no secret that we love Sheryl’s style, and we she nailed effortlessly chic yet again. Casual in distressed jeans and a grey tee, she elevated the look with refined finishes: a classic black blazer, sleek white pumps, and in our humble opinion, an outfit-making handbag.

The Priscilla in Natural Leighton has an angular edge, and two exotic textures combine to create just the right amount of structure and shine. Sheryl proves that this handbag can be dressed up or down, and it will be the hero of your fall wardrobe.

Shop the Priscilla in Natural Leighton before it’s gone!

ALERT: Back In Stock!

With its intricate whipstitching, luxe suede accents, and sassy tassel, the Sonny in Dark Cocoa Dalton was quickly established as a favorite from our Fall collection. This style sold out in a flash, but today is your lucky day…by popular demand, we are bringing back this best-selling style in limited quantities.

Reserve yours here before it’s gone again!

Wishing everyone a wonderful long weekend…happy Labor Day!

Meet Priscilla

Over the years, we have designed quite a few handbag styles. With so many favorites, if we are going to introduce a new style you can be certain that it will be good. Enter Priscilla: one of our newest structured satchels from our Fall collection. Read on to learn the inspiration behind the design, to hear what makes it a must have, and to see its journey from a sketch to the satchel you will be carrying all season. 

Millie Bautista was the mastermind behind the Priscilla, so we sat down with her to gain insight into her inspiration for this style.

She designed the silhouette in response to a need for a fashion-forward statement bag. With an angular silhouette and geometric edge, the cube anchor hardware adds to the modern look. It also has our standard interior and large back slide in pocket. 

Structured, angular, and modern. Meet your statement bag of the season.

Transitioning To Fall

Whether you are mourning the end of summer or anxiously awaiting the start of a cooler season, fall will be here before we know it. We are in the camp that cannot wait to start wearing our fall purchases immediately…we like instant gratification, and our new collection is too good to wait for the weather to change.

To seamlessly transition from summer to fall, our Southcoast collection is the ultimate in seasonless style. Below, some of our favorite fashion bloggers show us how to style their Southcoast bags both now and later with a few teeny tweaks.

Saddle bags are huge right now, and they are not going anywhere for the upcoming season. The Sonny in Black Charleston will carry you through seasons to come. Swap Grasie’s tee for a turtleneck when temperatures drop.

Backpacks are another style that it girls cannot get enough of. Super-chic and hands free…what’s not to love about our Gloria? Carry with a trench worn as a dress now, and layer the dress over jeans like Jess later.

Does anything say weekend ease like jeans, a tee, and of-the-moment sneakers? Layer a chunky cardigan on top, and Meagan’s look is the ultimate in casual on a cool day. We think our Delaney in Smoke Wilmington is the perfect slouchy style to complete any laidback look.

Is it possible for a camel color to be both seasonless yet scream fall at the same time? Our Maxine in Tan Savannah is just that. We envision a jean jacket as the perfect topper to add warmth to Sydne’s look come fall.

Shop these Southcoast styles: Sonny, Gloria, Delaney, Maxine

Happy Friday!

The September Issue

If you have a pile of magazine subscriptions that arrive in your mailbox each month like we do, we are sure you share our excitement for September. The biggest season in fashion and the ultimate month for magazines, September brings a season of fresh starts and shopping possibilities. The temperatures may still say it is summer, but as we flip through thousands of pages of fall fashion, we cannot help but be excited for the season ahead.

As you divulge into your issues, you may notice a Brahmin or two gracing the glossy pages of Harper’s Bazaar and StyleWatch. Here are a few of our favorite styles of the season as showcased on the spreads:

The Lily Clutch can be found in a feature appropriately named “Croc ‘n’ Roll” in Harper’s Bazaar. This style takes croc one step further with finishing touches like whipstitching and suede accents.

StyleWatch hits on top-handle bags as a must-have of the season, and our Brinley is the perfect answer to this trend. With ladylike lines and in fall’s quintessential forest green hue, this satchel will be your go-to style all season long.

Since it is technically still August, you may have seen the Debra in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar. This red-hot style is perfect to carry now and to add a pop of color to your wardrobe as temperatures drop.

What are your favorite magazines for style inspiration? Are you as excited for fall as we are?
