A Charming Evening In Charleston: Brahmin x Town & Country

Last month, we teamed up with Town & Country for the very last leg of the #BrahminTour to celebrate our Holiday collection in charming Charleston, South Carolina. We gathered at stunning Zero George with a variety of local tastemakers, influencers, and entrepreneurs for a candlelit evening filled with yummy cocktails, beautiful scenery, and inspiring conversations.

We’ll spare you a *full* recap, but a few highlights of the night included: artist Bryce Krzenski hand painting a custom Lane (which was then gifted to a lucky guest); the breathtaking tablescape, which was decorated with lush blooms and peppered with our holiday it-bag; and of course, mixing and mingling with our favorite local ladies. Join us in reminiscing on this fun-filled evening with the gorgeous photos — and on behalf of your very own #BrahminTour guides, thank you for coming along for the ride!

Season's Greetings! Get An EXCLUSIVE First Look At Holiday

We know, we know — the holiday season seems to creep up earlier every year. While there’s certainly no need to don an ugly sweater or deck the halls just yet, we’re of the firm belief that it’s never too soon to start daydreaming of a new handbag (or three) to add to your holiday wish list. Which is why this year, we’re helping you get way ahead of the holiday season with an exclusive first look at our list-topping new styles. Scroll on to get a jump-start on all things glitz, glam, and gift-worthy now. (You can thank us later when your list is set before the rest of the crowd can even utter the word “jolly”.)

All About Opal:

In a stunning kaleidoscopic blend of hues, Opal takes our croc-embossed leather to soaring new heights — AKA, the top of your wish list.

Coveting Claire:

The mini barrel bag that’s on a roll to becoming the biggest trend of the season. In all-new shades and styles, there’s a Claire for everyone on your list (including you).

Happy National Handbag Day! Win our (sold out!) fall it-bag

*Cue confetti* It’s our favorite day of the year! That’s right, National Handbag Day is here — and despite the fact that everyday is arguably National Handbag Day here at Brahmin (tough gig, we know) we wanted to extend the celebration to you too. In honor of this momentous occasion, we’re raising a glass to our bag BFFs. For keeping us organized, for doing all of our heavy lifting, and for always helping us look put together (even on the mornings we feel less than). That’s friendship.

Should you find yourself in need of a new go-to bag to celebrate the big day, well, we’ve got you covered. We’re giving one lucky winner our *sold out* Mini Priscilla in Scarlet Lausanne. (Yes, really). Enter to win this must-have style now — and while you wait for your name to be picked, take a scroll through the editor-approved ways to style this red-hot staple for any occasion.

May the handbag odds be ever in your favor!

Celebrating Powerful Women With Marie Claire: THE Queen City Fall Fête

Earlier this week, we had the pleasure of taking the Brahmin Tour back on the road to celebrate our fall collection in Queen City, Charlotte (appropriate name, *wink wink*) with Marie Claire. On the guest list were a slew of inspiring, empowered businesswomen and entrepreneurs — from our amazing hostess, Roxy Te of Society Social to various Charlotte editors, bloggers, and stylists. Attendees came equipped with contagious smiles, empowering stories, and of course, style to match.

Scroll through below for some of the highlights of the night; from cocktail hour with our ‘Priscilla’ spritzer on Merchant & Trade’s rooftop deck, to dinner at local hot-spot Angeline’s. Photo moments aside, our favorite parts of the night were swapping stories with all of the inspirational boss ladies in attendance. The energy in the room was proof: when women support women, we can do amazing things!

Code Red: Why Scarlet Is Fall's Hottest Hue

There are so many reasons to love the color red in the fall. Crisp apples picked from a trip to the orchard; vibrant foliage dotting every tree; your favorite flannel button down that’s somehow comfier with every wear. Channeling these very moments that feel so synonymous with the season, our design team created Scarlet. A vibrant, mid-toned red so versatile, we’d almost consider calling it a neutral. Browse our favorite picks from the line — and get ready to see this red-hot hue ev-er-y-where.

Spotted: Our Favorite Looks From #NYFW

It’s officially another year, another #NYFW that’s come and gone in a flash. Luckily, we have Instagram to thank for keeping us abreast of the heavy hitting trends spotted over the course of the nine-day fashion extravaganza. From beautiful boho florals, luxe velvet touches, striking snake prints, and reimagined vintage shapes, our favorite fall trends could be spotted around every city street corner.

We scrolled through the endless queue of street style looks in our feeds—from the aspirational, totally-out-there ensembles to the slightly more attainable ones—to round up the best of the best style moments. Armed with this inspo (and of course, the statement-making handbags to go with them), it’s safe to say we can’t wait to take on fall fashion on our own turf.

Well, it happened: Summer '18 has come to its (un)official close with the passing of Labor Day weekend.

From lightweight styles to conquer lingering summer heatwaves (without breaking a sweat) to the layered fall looks that'll have us daydreaming of crisp fall air, every combo shares one common denominator: the Mini Priscilla satchel. See how the must-have handbag of the season is taking over street style looks everywhere — and while you're at it, enjoy a healthy dose of outfit inspo. See, summer ending isn't all bad.

Wrapping Up Summer '18: Brahmin x Newport Polo

Screen Shot 2018-08-31 at 9.37.58 AM.png

With the arrival of Labor Day Weekend at our doorstep, we can't help but look back at all the fun we had this summer. Between roadtripping around the country to bring the best of Brahmin to you — from Memphis to San Francisco to our neighboring coastal New England city, Newport R.I. — we've been busy bees. But before the sunshine season (unofficially) ends, we thought it'd only be fit to pop up one last time at our favorite summer destination, Newport Polo.

From sipping on our signature Brahmin Spritz (available for purchase at the Twisted Pony bar), to snapping polaroids with the cutest polo props, to yes, getting our shop on with our favorite summer styles and fall arrivals, there'll be plenty of fun for everyone. We should also mention, you'll have the chance to win our fall It-Bag, the Mini Priscilla, for FREE. Sound like your kind of Saturday? Come root for the home team vs. England — and help us wrap up summer '18 in style — at the Polo Fields, starting at 2 p.m. until the end of the match. 

Can't make it? No FOMO necessary. Follow along on Instagram stories and with our hashtag, #BrahminTour, for highlights in real time — and stay tuned to see where we're headed next on the Brahmin Tour!

Take The Quiz: Which Mini Priscilla Style Are YOU?

Screen Shot 2018-08-20 at 1.01.03 PM.png

Every handbag — like every handbag owner — has a personality. Bright and outgoing; functional and classic; trendy and fearless; the list goes on and on. What makes shopping so much fun is discovering those statement pieces that speak to you on a personal level. (Our mentality: Your handbag is practically glued to your arm, so shouldn't it feel like a seamless continuation of you?)

To make finding your handbag match-made-in-heaven easier than ever, we put our heads together to create The Mini Priscilla personality quiz. Take it for a spin here to figure out which style is bound to be your next bag BFF — and don't be afraid to take it twice, because it is possible to have more than one bestie in your lineup, after all. ;)

Shop:

From left to right: the Mini Priscilla in Travertine Ballington, $325.00; the Mini Priscilla in Tart Melbourne, $265.00; the Mini Priscilla in Black Topsail, $325.00; and the Mini Priscilla in Multi Hansen; $315.00.
