Let's Talk Business: A Live Chat With goop & The Career Contessa

Two weeks ago, we took the Brahmin Tour to Austin to co-host goop’s g.Talk series for a special career-focused panel. The live discussion featured seasoned boss ladies Elise Loehnen, goop’s Chief Content Officer, and Lauren McGoodwin, the CEO-and-founder of Career Contessa. Between networking, specialty sips, and customized Voyage Luggage Tags, McGoodwin and Loehnen took center stage to offer up sage professional advice — from the importance of finding a mentor to having a functional bag that keeps you organized all day. Below, browse a few favorite moments from the empowering evening, and shop goop’s must-have picks from our spring collection here.

Trend Report: Bold Textures Are In For Spring

There’s something about spring that inspires us to reach outside of our comfort zones and approach dressing with a more fun, colorful approach. Where we might usually opt for neutral shades or everyday textures, we find ourselves reaching for styles with a bit more oomph. Think: fashion forward materials like intricately woven leathers on top of cool canvas, or well-placed pops of straw with colorful leather trim. Ready to shake things up this season, too? You’re in the right place. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite on-trend textures from the spring 2019 collection to help get your most creative ensembles started.

The Brahmin Tour Is Back! Starting With Our First Stop...

If you’ve been following us for a while on social media, you’ll know last year we launched the #BrahminTour in an effort to bring the best of Brahmin to your neck of the woods. We traveled the country near and far — from the birthplace of rock ’n’ roll to the Carolinas to back home in New England — seeing so many of you along the way. This year, we brought the tour back on the road, starting with one of our favorite charming spots: Charleston, South Carolina.

In celebration of the launch of our trunk show at The Skinny Dip, we hosted a few of our favorite local bloggers — from Kristin Chambless to Julia Engel to Megan Pinckney — to preview our spring line before its public debut this weekend. With specialty sips, cute photo moments, and must-have bags around every corner, the night was one to remember. The best part? Our trunk show collection is now fully available to shop at The Skinny Dip, Charleston today through Sunday, 3/10. Swing by to say hi and leave with a new handbag (or two — who’s counting?). Can’t make it? Stay up to date here with dates and locations of our upcoming stops.

Currently Pining Over... The Sweetest Pineapple Print For Spring

It’s not every day you see a print that literally makes you stop and smile — but that’s exactly what happened the first time our design team gave us a glimpse of spring’s new Multi Pompano collection. The cheeky embossed print feels like sweet treat and a tropical escape all wrapped into one, and in a mix of styles, there’s no reason not wear it morning, noon, and night. After all, a pineapple handbag a day keeps the blues away, right?

Celebrate Duxbury Day With Must-Have Spring Styles

It’s no secret that everyone loves the Duxbury Satchel. Big or small, this style proves time and again why it continues to grace to best seller list. While it’s impossible to pin down just one thing that makes this bag pure magic—the unique silhouette, the seemingly endless capacity—we can say for certain that it really lives up to the hype. For this reason (and, to be frank, just because we felt like it) we decided this time last year to honor the stellar style with its own special holiday. Enter, Duxbury Day.

In honor of (our arguably favorite) holiday’s second year running, we rounded up a few our favorites from the just-launched spring collection. Go ahead and celebrate, you lucky dux!
