Brahmin Travel

We know that it's tough to look and feel glamorous while traveling. Long car rides or early morning airport trips followed by lengthy flights leave you feeling tired and out of sorts. Although we can't help you feel better, we can help you look your best! We've created two travel bags that will make your journey easier and chic-er. To put our new bags to the test, we had frequent jet-setter Grasie Mercedes use the Wheeled Brief and Carry-on Wheeled Duffle on some of her recent adventures. 

If you happen to follow Grasie's blog you might have noticed she recently returned from a trip of a lifetime- her honeymoon in Africa (if you don't follow her blog you must check out her pictures! They're amazing!)

After venturing across the globe and back, here are some words of wisdom:

"Luggage is important! I prefer carry-ons so I eliminate the risk of lost luggage. Go with pieces that have sturdy wheels, are durable and of course fashionable! These new wheeled pieces from Brahmin were the perfect travel companions on our trip." - Grasie Mercedes

So there you have it. Believe it or not, it is possible to travel in style and travel smart. To shop our new travel collection click here.

Have a great day!

Looks We Love

We all have our favorite Little Black Dress, but sometimes we forget that a pop of color pulls the entire outfit together. That's exactly how Fashion Blogger, The Steele Maiden styled her look. We love the way she paired her Duxbury clutch in Fig Normandy and statement earrings with such a timeless style. 

Another fabulous example of how to work a hot hue into your style. We love how The Stylephile accessorized her off white dress with her Duxbury Clutch in Lagoon Melbourne and her adorable corgi! There is so much cute-ness taking place in these photos we can barely handle it.

Thanks ladies for providing us with this week's looks we love!

Have a great day!

It's Tent Sale Time!

That's right! One of our favorite weekends of the year is just around the corner. In exactly one month we will be on the lawn outside our Fairhaven outlet (as well as our other outlet locations) surrounded by beautiful Brahmin bags in search of a home. For those of you unfamiliar with our Tent Sale, scroll down to find out all you need to know.

Breaking down the Brahmin Tent Sale. Three things you need to know: 

1. Three days long, Three locations. Our Tent Sale takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at our outlet locations only. We have outlet stores in: Fairhaven Massachusetts, Orlando Florida and San Marcos Texas.  

2. Buy More, Save More! The more you buy the more you save so don't hold back! 

3. Fall Tent Sale = Holiday shopping come early. Seriously, take advantage of the amazing savings and stock up on gifts. It may sound crazy but trust us when we say you'll be so happy to avoid the busy malls come December.

Trend Alert! Papaya Prague

If you haven't yet discovered our Papaya Prague bags, now is the time. Everyone seems to be buzzing about Brahmin's unique take on texture; smooth suede stripes paired next to luxe ostrich embossed leather. We've all heard the saying "opposites attract" and in this case, it's totally true; opposite textured leathers truly bring out the best in each other! 

#MyBrahminFall

Grace Atwood of Stripes & Sequins shows how her Hudson Satchel in Papaya Prague transitions from day to night. The vintage inspired patchwork can easily be dressed up or down. We love how she paired it with a vibrant red dress! But you could easily wear the same bag with your favorite jeans and a tee shirt. The styling possibilities are endless.

An Artful Evening

On Thursday night, Brahmin took over the top floor at The Hotel Giraffe in New York City to give guests a special presentation of our Fall 2014 Collection.  To highlight the beautiful detailing and hand craftsmanship of Brahmin bags, bright lights illuminated fourteen mannequins; each showcasing a new fall crossbody, giving the experience a unique art exhibit ambiance. The room was complete with a talented harpist who serenaded everyone with familiar radio hits with a classical twist.

Meanwhile outside, guests sipped on cocktails and enjoyed light bites while posing for photos in front of our Brahmin step and repeat. 

#MyBrahminFall

The Artful Evening was hosted by two of our favorites: Grace Atwood and Jess Kirby (you may recognize them from this post,) we were so excited they were able to join us! How great does the Hudson Satchel in Papaya Prague and the Mini Duxbury in St. Germaine look on them?! Here are a few more pics from the night:

The Artful Evening was such a fun night! We loved catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.

Have a good day everyone!

Vermillion

Vermillion is one of those shades that can be worn in so many ways! Whether you rock a vermillion colored dress, add an accent by mixing in a scarf, statement necklace or shoes, or just wear a bold lip, we promise you won't be disappointed. This red-orange hybrid is a hot hue for now and fall (seriously, it looks great with a tan!) and has been seen everywhere from the runways of Fashion Week to the red carpet, and now in Brahmin's Fall Collection.

Fresh for Fall: Snake Print

#MyBrahminFall

#MyBrahminFall

Lately we have been loving snake print. It's easy-to-wear and can add a look of luxe, a dash of exotic, or a layer of intrigue depending on how you work it into your style. And what's more, there is no such thing as too little or too much. You can add a subtle pop of texture by way of cute shoes or a handbag (like our new Tortoise Seville collection or a piece from Brahmin Atelier), or if you're ready to take the plunge- go all out and wear a dress, top, or pants. The sky's the limit! Plus it is a great transitional texture that will take you from now to well into fall. 

If you don't already have pieces of sophisticated snake in your closet- we highly encourage it! 

Have a great day!
