Brahmin at Coachella

This past weekend kicked off the 2014 Coachella Music and Arts Festival where 90,000 fans migrated to Indio, California for three fun filled days of music, fashion and memories that will last a lifetime.

This year's Coachella festival was one for the books- with countless special guests, casual celebrity sightings, amazing festival fashion and last but not least... Brahmin bags. That's right, we've rounded up pictures from bloggers who's fabulous festival fashion included Brahmin in convenient crossbodys that were perfect for dancing in the desert.

There were so many great pictures from the weekend! Thanks to Sydne, Sheryl, Rachael, An, Grasie, Taye and Elizabeth for Instagramming their Brahmin Coachella style throughout the weekend. You ladies looked fab and have definitely inspired some "festival fashion" purchases here at Brahmin headquarters.

Old Bags Luncheon Round-up

Last week the Brahmin team was in Naples, Florida for the Old Bags Luncheon, a silent auction and charity luncheon to benefit the Naples Shelter for abused women and children. The event was nothing short of a success, a lovely morning filled with champagne and handbags, followed by an afternoon special presentation of Carmen Marc Valvo's  Fall 2014 Runway Show. Here are some highlights from the day.

Carmen Marc Valvo's Fall 2014 runway show was truly a treat, the first time the show has been viewed since February's New York Fashion Week. 

A day of handbags, fashion and fun; not to mention so many lovely ladies who attended the event and walked away with a new Brahmin Bag! We are so happy to have been part of such a wonderful event that benefitted a great cause. 

Happy Monday!

Trend Alert! Enamel

#Brahmin Enamel

Although we currently have a couple color crushes (because one is never enough!) we have to admit that enamel has certainly won us over. Who knew this gorgeous blue hue could be such a feminine-chic color? Its rich radiance adds an instant glow to any look. Weather you go all out with an enamel dress, or keep it subtle with statement earrings, you can't go wrong. And the best part is it's perfect for right-now and will see you through summer. Its a color that truly complements every complexion. It even looks amazing around the home in furniture and decor. If your wardrobe doesn't include this fresh shade then you must check out our latest collection of enamel bags and accessories... the perfect way to integrate enamel into your everyday style!

March Instagram Round-Up

#Brahmin March Instagram Round-up

Happy April everyone! We've officially made it through March, and although she didn't exactly go out like a lamb, this week is finally beginning to feel a little like spring. Hopefully there won't be too many April showers heading our way and we can fast forward straight to May flowers. We've collected some of our favorite instagrams from the month of March, highlighting a few of our top trends for spring: pastels (yes we're still loving them!), metallics, pops of vibrant color and chic mixed textured bags (we're talking about our white bora pictured bottom left). Thanks to our fantastic Brahmin fans for sharing their pictures on instagram... keep 'em coming!

Wishing you all a great month of April!

Trend Alert! Metallics

Metallic colors are turning up everywhere and we can't seem to get enough. Here are five reasons why gold and silver shine are quickly becoming our number one color crush.

#1 Day to Night Perfection

Metallics have that stop-and-stare chic effect during the day, having the ability to make even the most casual "errand-running" outfit look cool, while at night metallics take on a whole new meaning. The perfect match for your favorite LBD or add some edge to a button up blouse and skinny jeans.

#2 Wear with Everything

We're not kidding; gold and silver go with absolutely everything. Prints, bright colors, black & white, patterns, earth hues, jewel tones... the list goes on. Think of it as a new twist on neutrals; gray and light brown enhanced with the midas touch. You can get so much wear out of one high-shine bag. 

#3 Instant Fierce Factor

A metallic bag adds powerful polish to your wardrobe repertoire. Your style is more likely to garner attention with a touch of glam and your confidence factor is bound to build when carrying such a luxe accessory.

#4 Totally Trend-Right

If you happened to watch any of this year's award season, you may have spotted some shimmering gowns on the red carpet. These eye-catching ensembles made quite a statement and further validated our love for metallics.

#5 All Year Glam

Perhaps one of the best things about these high-shine hues is the fact that they can transition seamlessly between seasons. Their ability to be worn with everything makes them the perfect accessory. From summertime barbeques to a holiday cocktail party, metallics are a great year-round statement.

Our new Mai Tai la scala bags are the perfect pastel hue for right now.  Soft pinks and blush tones are currently trending everywhere- on Fashion Week runways, on the Hollywood red carpet and of course on and in our stores. With spring less than a week away, now is the time to trade in winter's dark colors for something light and refreshing.
