Red, White and Blue

Sometimes it's just fun to get festive. With July 4th coming up we have been collecting style inspiration for ideas on how to pull off red, white and blue for the holiday weekend.

Naturally Grasie Mercedes pulled together a simple, yet amazing combination that says Happy Fourth of July without screaming too loud. Her striped skirt is the perfect color combination and we love how it's off set by her casual gray tank.

Lastly, her Brahmin Cobalt Coeur Bryant Clutch ties the look together. The embossed cobalt blue suede is finished with metallic flex, so the bag has a unique sparkle to it. Both our Cobalt Coeur Collection and new Red Santa Clara bags are  all you need to master the ultimate patriotic style.  You can even wear something as simple as a white tee and denim shorts paired with one of these bags. 

Have a wonderful day!

Summer Favorites

BrahminSummerStyles1

It's here! Today is the first official day of summer which means you have the greatest number of daylight hours to go out and show off your summer Brahmin bag! In honor of everyone's most anticipated season, we picked five of our favorite styles that complement every summer look. 

1) The new Dartmouth Backpack takes this classic style to a new level.

2) Our popular Duxbury Satchel in one of summer's hottest shades.

3) The lady-like Faye Satchel in Summer Tortoise.

4.) The Maxine drawstring bucket bag, a great silhouette for the season.

5) The surprisingly spacious Lenox Clutch for effortless day to night style 

If you haven't already found your go-to bag for the season, we hope our selections have helped! 

Have a great weekend everyone.

This week's Look We Love is brought to you by the ever-energetic Hallie Wilson of the NYC  Based fashion and lifestyle blog Corals + Cognacs. (We say ever-energetic because she happens to have a full time job, maintains a blog and impressive social media following and is a Soul Cycle instructor!) Despite her busy schedule, Hallie had time to style our Perri Crossbody bag and enjoy a day in the city. We love how she removed the strap and is carrying the bag as a clutch! It's a great accessory that pulls together her entire look. A perfect contrast to the light blush-tones of her jacket, shorts and top. Thanks for sharing your post Hallie!

Have a fabulous Day!

The Balsa Collection

Inspiration can be found in so many ways. Often times when you least expect it. These are typically the best moments that result in true creativity and an amazing result! Our Balsa Collection is a perfect example. Inspired by the iconic Woodie car, the Brahmin design team fell in love with the laid-back California beach vibes that the wood paneling symbolized. They knew it would make for a special summer Brahmin bag.

The collection is crafted with hand finished embossed leather made to resemble wood grain and paired with a rich brown vachetta leather. It's such a stunning combination that can be worn with so many shades! It complements neutrals and bright colors, and looks great with patterns and prints.  The texture is an alternative to straw bags, raffia, and other light-weight summer leathers. The bags are so unique and have been a big hit around the Brahmin Offices. We hope you love them as much as we do!

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.

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.
