We want to say thank you to Mara, Kier and An for posting such beautiful pics of their Woodrose La Scala bags!  Even though October is almost over (we know. it's crazy) we are still thinking pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We love how these ladies showed their support in casual chic outfits that highlighted their pink bags. So far Brahmin has raised over $6,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. We're honored to have such wonderful customers to help us reach our goals... and we are still going! Our Breast Cancer Awareness Promotions will continue to run through October 31st.

Thanks for reading!

Behind the Scenes: Brahmin Holiday

Here at Brahmin we are in full gear getting ready to release our much anticipated Holiday collection. From everyday elegance to the perfect party bag, our design team was inspired by the glamour of the roaring 20s mixed with the romance of Paris. A time period when personal style evolved into feminine glam and women pushed the boundaries, embracing stylish new wardrobe risks.

Our designers created mood boards (pictured above) to tell the collection's story; inspired by Parisian cafes decorated with blooming floral arrangements and lively jazz clubs accessorized with lace and color block ensembles, these are just a few of the trends you will see in what's to come. We can't wait to show you what else is in store! Stay tuned!

Think Pink! Looks We Love

As we continue to honor and support October's recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness, we've highlighted Kier's lovely ladylike style featuring our Mini Arno Tote in Woodrose la scala paired with a fresh white dress. We know some of you may not be wearing white anymore and it's becoming too chilly outside to wear a short dress, but nevertheless, we wanted to share the style inspiration. Kier’s look can easily be replicated for cool weather- think an oversized off-white sweater with your favorite jeans, leggings or skirt. Add a pink Woodrose bag and boom! You've got one chic outfit that supports a wonderful cause.

We can't say enough how much we adore Mara's effortless chic look. We all love the simple, minimalist style of denim on denim- your favorite comfortable jeans paired with a soft chambray button down is probably one of the most popular outfits spotted around the Brahmin office. Mara takes this already perfect pair and layers a long asymmetrical sweater. And now for our favorite part! Our Black Bohemian Floral Vivian satchel adds a pop of print against the outfit's cool earth tones. Such a wonderful combination that can easily be replicated! 

Have a great day!!

October Vault

We are so excited to announce that we have once again opened our Vault! 

We have brought back a Brahmin classic, originally designed and hand-made by founders Joan and Bill Martin in 1982,  the Satchel was Brahmin's first best selling bag, and we're happy to say that the satchel's design, shape and features remain on-trend today; more than three decades later. Truly a timeless style! 

Manufactured entirely in our Fairhaven, Massachusetts factory, we chose four different color ways when recreating this Brahmin beauty. Available exclusively on Brahmin.com and in our Brahmin Boutique stores the satchel is featured in black tuscan, onyx la scala, woodrose la scala and a chic combination of birch and pecan croco embossed leather. 

And finally! A peek back in time to the original Brahmin Satchel.  As you can see, not too much has changed! Any Brahmin fans out there have one of the originals?! 

We hope you enjoy our October Vault. Thanks for reading!!

Think Pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and here at Brahmin we want to do our part to help spread awareness for this important cause. With so many people who have either faced breast cancer or have friends or loved ones affected, we want to encourage everyone to join the fight and take preventative steps to detect the disease in its earliest stages. All month long we will show our support with multiple promotions benefitting the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Read below to see how you can help. 

Throughout the month of October, in Brahmin Boutique Stores, donate $5 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and receive 20% off any one item, or shop online at Brahmin.com and we will donate $5 for every woodrose la scala item purchased.

So please think pink throughout October! Together we can all support in the fight against breast cancer.

Carmine Countdown

It seems we're not the only ones who think our new Carmine red is the perfect color for fall (and even winter!) We love every bag style and accessory that comes in this have-to-have hue, but we've managed to pick our top five. Read our countdown and find out what we love about each item below.

#5. The Soft Checkbook Wallet looks so chic in tri-texture! We especially like that the interior is finished in smooth papaya leather with the removable checkbook cover in pecan. We love the mix of colors, textures and great functionality of this piece! 

#4. The Mimosa Crossbody  is a bag and wallet in one- the ultimate piece for busy days or running errands (just think: a hands-free crossbody and leave your wallet at home!) We also love the tri texture combination featuring the papaya vachetta tassel. 

#3. The Zoe Wallet is surprisingly versatile, it can hold your cell phone and can be worn as a wristlet. Not to mention it has two zip compartments to keep you extra organized. 

#2. Our Eyeglass Case adds the look of luxe to your glasses even before they make their grand entrance. Carmine red is the perfect touch of texture and color to match your fall handbag

#1. The Lincoln Satchel in Carmine red is the ultimate finishing touch for your daytime look. Whether you're heading to the office, to class or have a long day ahead- this bag adds just the right amount of polish and carries all of your essentials. We also love that you can wear it multiple ways with its removable shoulder strap. We're in love.

So there you have it. Our top five ready-to-wear carmine red pieces for fall. Thanks for reading!

Happy Monday!
