BRahmin + Vogue Event

To kick off our Summer Collection, we partnered with Vogue Magazine to host a memorable evening for some of our dear friends as well as new bloggers we were thrilled to meet. Here is a look into our night at the Bouley Test Kitchen in Tribeca, NYC.

After previewing styles from our summer collection, guests were treated to a special cooking demonstration where they learned tips & tricks from some of New York's top chefs. The unique hands on culinary experience reflects Brahmin's #Summerinhand campaign, encouraging customers to make the most of the season with unforgettable experiences and effortless summer style.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who joined us, Vogue Magazine and to the incredible staff at Bouley Test Kitchen for making the event truly memorable.

The Perri Crossbody bag

If you are not already familiar with our popular Perri Crossbody bag, we're here to introduce you. She is currently the most coveted bag around the Brahmin office and our customers seem to agree. Watch Grasie Mercedes as she takes you through the bag's features.

One bag, multiple ways to wear. Not only can the Perri be worn as a crossbody or clutch, but you can create an effortlessly cool look by wearing as a shoulder bag like our friend Kendall below.

BrahminMarianna1

One of our favorite bloggers Marianna Hewitt of the fashion and lifestyle blog lalamer spent a day with her lovely mom and their Brahmin bags.

BrahminMarianna2

We love both Marianna and her mom's style! Each wearing a versatile day to night look that can easily be dressed up or down. Marianna is wearing our Perri Crossbody and her mom is wearing our Tilda Crossbody in ink melbourne.

BrahminMarianna3

"One tip my Mom taught me was to always dress for your body type. Regardless of trends, wear clothes that look good for your fit. This means not wasting money on disposable clothes, but buying items that are investment pieces."

BrahminMarianna4

Such a true and valuable style tip, and we have to say that we couldn't agree more! Check out Marianna's post highlighting even more about her mom and their style secrets.

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget Mother's Day is right around the corner! Check out our mother's day collection for some great gift ideas.

Meet Majestic

At Brahmin we are always looking for new design elements that will give customers a greater variety of our products while remaining true to our quality and unique approach to exotic embossed leathers. We are so excited to introduce our brand new texture that we are hoping you like as much as we do, Majestic croco. Yes, we know at first glance Majestic may look similar to our popular croco embossed Melbourne leather. But we encourage you to take a closer look.

Majestic is a new variation of croco embossed leather. The scales are smaller, flatter and more subtle, a delicate approach to the exotic trend. The texture does not have the defined hornback that is present in our Melbourne Croco.

Melbourne croco features larger scales that are more pronounced. A bold and timeless take on texture that has been engrained in Brahmin's DNA since the company's start in 1982.

Majestic is currently available in our boutique stores and on Brahmin.com in three of our most coveted styles. We will of course continue to design and manufacture our Melbourne textured bags, but are happy to offer an additional option to our textural mix. As always, we welcome your feedback as we continue to develop the best possible product for our customers. Tell us what you think of Majestic in the comments below or on our Facebook Page.

Grasie's Mother's Day Style tip

BrahminGrasieMDay1

Our dear friend Grasie Mercedes of the fashion blog Style me Grasie shared her favorite style advice given to her by her Mom, accessories make the outfit. As Grasie states, "from your bag, to your shoes and even your lipstick, you can step up any look with the extras. It’s a style philosophy I always take to heart." We couldn't agree more! Especially with the perfect Brahmin bag, accessories are all you need to make an outfit amazing. We love how Grasie styled her Harrison Carryall in Lilac Cayman with sleek neutrals. 

Once again, #Momknowsbest. Thanks for sharing her style tip Grasie!

Brahmin Mother's Day

Mother's Day is fast approaching and this year we are celebrating the style tips she taught us, giving much deserved thanks to our very first stylist.  Here are five pieces of style advice that we will always remember: 

It's on the inside that counts. Be prepared for whatever comes your way by staying organized and prepared. The craftsmanship and attention to detail in each Brahmin bag keeps you ready for everything. 

Texture makes a statement. She always encouraged you to make a grand entrance, and what better way than to incorporate texture into your style, a timeless look that always stands out. 

The bag is the outfit. It's true. Sometimes all you truly need is a fabulous handbag.

Navy and black is a proper pairing. Yes, we've all heard the style myth that these two hues mix like oil and water, but she knew better. Navy and black is a one chic combination.

Don't forget the details. Last but certainly not least, details can define; they may be small but they can have a big impact.

So there you have it, our five favorite style tips she taught us that we will always remember. To shop our Mother's Day Collection click here.

Lighten Up

Now that it is April there are three things we know for certain: 1. the days are getting longer (and we're so happy about it!) 2. the rain showers will bring beautiful May flowers and 3. it's time to wear more color! We were inspired by these sunny red carpet looks and decided our Lemonade Nepal leather is a great way to phase out winter's dark palette for something light and bright.

This sumptuous shade has been seen all over runways and spotted throughout award season, and is currently available in four of our most popular bag styles: the Trina Shoulder Bag, the Lexie Crossbody, the Harrison Carryall and the Harrison Hobo.

Trust us... this is a color you must try this spring!
