Trend Alert: Appliqué

As you all know, playing with texture is a big deal at Brahmin. From our variety of exotic embossed leathers, to multiple materials (including raffia, nylon, woven leathers and more), we are always experimenting with fresh takes on texture. This spring, one design that really stands out is appliqué

Apparently we're not the only ones who love this look. From last weekend's SAG Awards, Guiliana Rancic wore a sleeveless black dress by design house Gauri and Nainika. Complete with bodice to skirt floral appliqués.

Rachael McAdams also wore an elegant, Elie Saab gown to the SAG Awards finished with beautiful appliqué-details that looked strikingly similar to our new Black Miramonte Collection. 

Ahandbag or accessory is the perfect way to sport this up and coming trend that can easily be worn all through summer. It is a fun and detailed way to integrate multiple textures into our handbags in unique prints and patterns. Shop our spring appliqué collection here and enjoy the rest of your day :)

Welcome to...

Brahmin Spring. Inspired by the relaxed culture of the West Coast combined with the picturesque palm trees and layered landscapes of Southern California.

Our design team matched their California inspiration with key seasonal trends. Creating floral appliques with a retro-reminiscent feel and iridescent snake that shimmers in the light.  And as always, inventing unique and interesting ways to play with texture.

Flash forward to our Spring Photo Shoot in beautiful, sunny LA. Where our amazingly talented team including two beautiful models, a style-savvy fashion influencer and incredible photographers brought our design team's vision to life.

Fashion & Lifestyle blogger Mara Ferreira from MlovesM joined us on set for a special behind the scenes shoot and exclusive first look at Brahmin's new collections. Pictured with the Casey Tote from our new Bayview Collection.

Making our Spring Collection come to life, both the beautiful new product and the story behind it, was an incredible experience. We are so excited to share it with you, and for you to get to know the leading ladies behind the camera. You can explore even more by shopping our Spring Catalog on Brahmin.com.

Color of the Year

Rose shades have been in the spotlight lately. Seen both on and off the runways and most recently on the Golden Globes red carpet; our design team was right on the mark when selecting this must-have hue for our latest collection. 

BrahminRoseQuartz1

At this past weekend's Golden Globes, there were so many standout gowns on the Red Carpet it was difficult to choose favorites; but the multiple soft shades of pink certainly made a powerful statement. The color is fun, feminine and looks great on its own or when paired with other colors. We love the fact that it has been named Pantone's Color of the Year and of course that we have it in our current collection!

Introducing Ruby

If you haven't already met her, it's time to become acquainted with our new Ruby Satchel. For those who feel a new bag is as necessary as a new year's resolution- the Ruby is a great addition to your 2016 wardrobe. She is the perfect size, not too big but offers plenty of interior space and organizational features to store everyday essentials. Her elegant details add feminine flare, specifically Ruby's subtle pleats and detailed piping. Lastly, the Satchel stays safe and secure with its convenient zip top closure, while remaining comfortable and versatile. You can easily wear the Ruby two ways: as a handbag using the Satchel's top handles, or attach the longer shoulder strap and style as a shoulder bag. 

The Ruby is a perfect year-round bag and a great accessory for the start of a new year. To shop all of our Ruby Satchels click here. 

Happy holidays!

Brahmin for Him

Finding the perfect present for him can be stressful. It's difficult to find that one gift that he will appreciate and use. Well look no further. We've teamed up with our dear friend Grasie Mercedes and her husband Damien to show the versatility and luxe look of our new men's collection. 

Damien is carrying our new Liam Duffle bag, a spacious carry-on that was made for long weekends and to take along on your faraway flight. And Grasie is wearing our Lyle Tote. This a great bag for both men and women. With two ways to wear (carry by hand or attach the longer shoulder strap), the Lyle is versatile and a great bag for work and travel. It's available in multiple smooth leathers and neutral colors- find your favorite here. There are also new additions to our men's collection such as our new Brian backpack and Andy Briefcase. 

So don't wait. Get him a Brahmin for the holidays!
