The Verdict: Everyone Loves the Lane

It’s no secret that we love the Lane crossbody (find us a rooftop, and we’ll start shouting from it). Our infatuation revolves around the bag’s chic, circular shape. And its vintage charm. And its runway feel. Seriously, it’s hard to single out one favorite feature—this is an all-around perfect style, any way you slice it. 

And we’re not even saying this because we're biased (fine, maybe we’re a little biased). Some of our favorite trendsetters and tastemakers are also lavishing praise on this must-have look.

Check out what style-savvy bloggers are saying about the Lane, and get instant inspiration on how to wear it. Here, the roundup:

New York-based fashion writer Olivia Trewatha of Olivia Jeanette practically waxes poetic:

"Isn’t it darling? [The] unexpected round shape gives it this great vintage feel."

And see how fashion-writer (and blogger friend) Meagan Brandon of Meagan's Moda manages to seamlessly pair the Lane with two totally different looks:

We're head over heels for the way writer and actress Grasie Mercedes of Style Me Grasie wears her Lane in Ink Melbourne against a bright floral blazer.

And now that we've reintroduced the style in brand new hues for spring, you can really let your imagination fly. Because with the Lane, there are no limits.

Brahmin at the InStyle Awards

Pardon us while we shake the glitter from our hair—and handbags.

Brahmin walked the red carpet on Monday night as an official sponsor of the third annual InStyle Awards, held in Los Angeles. The A-list event, hosted by InStyle editor-in-chief Laura Brown, honors the celebrities and artists who inspire trends and define major moments in fashion. Hollywood elites such as Zendaya, Selena Gomez, Faith Hill, and Cate Blanchett—who took home the Style Icon Award—gathered for an intimate (read: exclusive) dinner at the Getty Center to celebrate the occasion, and Brahmin was right there in the middle of the buzzy, glitzy action. (Check out our handbag display below!)

Our top highlights included watching Petra Flannery nab Stylist of the Year, the coveted title sponsored by yours truly.

To put our own special mark on the evening (well, besides our logo on the step-and-repeat), we invited some of our favorite influencers to join us. Fashion writer and blogger Louise Roe of Front Roe positively glowed in Victoria Beckham—plus adorable baby bump.  Brittany Xavier brought her usual dose of LA cool to the table, while Sydne Summer, Sheryl Luke, Michelle Tractenberg, and Sazan Hendrix of Sazan (also rocking a picture-perfect baby bump!) showed up carrying our brand new Sandrine clutch in colors and textures of their choosing.  

The Sandrine won’t be available until early 2018, but here are some images to inspire you (how gorgeous is that green??). Plus, more behind-the-scene peeks from our star-studded night!

Kiss-Kiss! (read: See You Soon!)

Vintage Vibes With Meagan's Moda

There is no doubt that vintage is having a major moment in fashion right now. What's old is new again, and anything with a retro vibe feels cool and fresh. Our blogger friend Meagan Brandon of Meagan's Moda has long been a Brahmin fan, and she was thrilled to find a vintage Brahmin Hunt bag on eBay. It seems to have become a wardrobe staple within Meagan's handbag rotation, and we can see why - its saddle shape is just as relevant today as it was when it was originally designed in 1982. Scroll through to see what we mean. 

In fact, we loved her style so much that when it came time for our design team to choose a few best-sellers from our archives for a limited-edition anniversary collection, the Hunt was a must. Here is the update to this classic in Pecan Concordia, an original Brahmin leather combination with a pop color on the trim.  

Celebrate our 35th anniversary with us with a piece from our limited-edition anniversary collection (we think the Hunt is a fabulous choice). Shop here

Summer Style With Livvy Land

It is officially summer, also known as Southcoast season around here. We think summer is the perfect time to kick back and relax, and our weekend wear has a sneaky way of creeping into our weekday wardrobes.

Today we’re sharing a little style inspiration from one of our closest blogger friends, Olivia of Livvy Land. She has Southcoast style down to a tee, and we want to live in her casual-cool world. Here she shows us how to wear two of summer’s must-have styles: a drawstring crossbody with a boho vibe and a backpack with effortless ease.

Our Isabelle Crossbody and an off-the-shoulder top are a match made in heaven:  

The Josie Backpack and statement earrings are all you need to jazz up jeans and a white top. 

Have a wonderful weekend, and don’t forget to shop the full Southcoast collection.

Brahmin Welcomes Meagan's Moda

It's no secret that Meagan Brandon of the fashion blog Meagan's Moda is one of our blogger besties. She is often seen with a Brahmin on her arm, and she even appeared in our Winter catalog this past year. Between living in Italy and Jordan, we were thrilled to host her here at Brahmin headquarters while she was in the states. 

We loved giving Meagan a tour of our world, from our Newport boutique to our factory and ending the day over endless wine and delicious Italian dining. Here is a glimpse into her day with Brahmin.

Visiting our design studio to see the design process, learn a little of the inspiration behind the collections, and sneaking a peek of what is to come.
