Spotlight On: Turquoise Sandestin

Blink and you may have missed it. Our exclusive Turquoise Sandestin collection flew off the shelves and sold out almost instantly. With its unique shimmering texture in mermaid hues, it’s no wonder it caught so many eyes.  

We have just one style left in this gorgeous leather (the perfect small accessory to make a big statement), so hurry and grab your Kayla before it disappears into the Brahmin archives. Start your weekend early on a shimmering note and shop here!

Happy weekend!

Spring Shades

With daylight savings just around the corner (hint: Sunday), things are lightening up. This means our Spring collection is getting lighter too, with lots of pastel colors and soft hues making their way into our wardrobes. From pastel peaches to sea glass inspired blues, there are so many gorgeous shades to choose from.

Peach pastels: Soft apricot adds a hint of color to a neutral tone.  

Sea glass shades: Serene bluish-green hues channel the sea.

Spring whites: Anything but basic with whipstitching, intriguing textures, and luxe accents.  

Whether you go neutral with bright white or add sorbet shades to your ensemble, we guarantee a new handbag will make you feel like spring is here.

Get Styled By Louise Roe

There is no doubt that Louise Roe knows style. (In case you missed her introduction, read more about her here.) Today, we are dishing spring trends, sharing styling tips, and learning a few of her tricks when putting together an outfit. Press play below to hear it straight from Louise:

As you can see, Louise is all all about the accessories, and we couldn't agree more. Start with a special statement piece -our Spring collection has so many to choose from- and build the rest of your look from there. With details like whipstitching, tassels, and textures, allow your handbag to speak for itself. Get inside Louise's head as she styled three very different looks and shop her picks below:  

I always begin with the accessories. This warm tan hobo bag gave me retro vibes, and my friend had recently designed a burnt orange paisley maxi. It was perfect! The yellow shades made the whole thing playful and very ‘70’s.
— Louise Roe
I wanted to vary my look, as modern women play a ton of different roles in their lives! So this was far more slick and tailored. I like a monochrome look too, it’s an easy way to make a statement.
— Louise Roe
This look is the most relaxed. Off the shoulder is a great way to show a little skin, without being too revealing. I love the idea of wearing this head to toe on a summer trip, sightseeing around Italy!
— Louise Roe

Inspired? Although we love a go-to signature style, we also think it's so much fun to vary our looks from day to day based on how we feel and where we are going. How will you style your Brahmin this season? Shop all of Louise's picks from our Spring collection here

Naples Winter Wine Festival

This January, Brahmin was proud to be a part of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, an exciting multi-day event hosted each year by the Naples Children and Education Foundation where 100% of proceeds are all for the kids. Since the foundation's inception in 2001, the festival has raised over $161 million dollars for underserved children in Florida's Collier County. (So amazing!)

One of the event's highlights was a live silent auction where guests bid on extravagant prizes ranging from rare wine varietals to luxe trips for two across the globe. To add to the excitement of the silent auction, Brahmin donated Thelma Totes for each of the guests to take home with them. This year, the event raised $15 million dollars for the county's children- a record breaking amount! Congratulations to everyone who helped make this event so successful and thank you for allowing us to take part!
