#BrahminCheer

Some people segue right from Halloween into holiday mode (and they always live next door, and they always outshine us with their light displays). Other people—meaning, everyone else—require a little coaxing before they can fully embrace the holiday spirit. A fall of snow, a glowing fireside, any kind of sugar cookie…you get the idea.

At Brahmin, the only thing we need to achieve instant cheer is this brand new video featuring two of our favorite it-girls (and real life friends), fashion blogger Jacey Duprie and actress Grasie Mercedes. Watch them get ready for a holiday party and gift this season’s must-have looks (if that Arden Satchel in Sky Carlisle doesn’t make you melt, nothing will). There’s even a cameo by Jacey’s adorable bulldog, Polly Pringle Smalls (yes, that’s her real name and yes, she has her own instagram @pollypringlesmalls if you fall in love and want to see more).

So hit ‘play,’ and if you’re not at work, crank up the volume. Because honestly, you can’t be all ‘humbug’ once these two start gifting handbags.

Happy Merry!

Blue in Bloom

If you follow trend reports and style blogs (clearly, you do), then you’ve probably heard that floral prints are having a moment (clearly, they are). This season, designers scattered flowery motifs all over the runways—not your timid violets and dewy tea roses—but riotous bouquets blooming against dark backgrounds.

Well, we here at Brahmin love a trend. And we love a floral print. So you can imagine just how excited we were to grow our own version of this look (pun very much intended).

Inspiration for the idea first sprouted (sorry, we had to) when one of our designers at our Massachusetts headquarters opened her notebook and shared a sketch that our team uniformly fell in love with: a wintery palette of pale blue flowers. The custom image was hand-painted in-house, and then printed on croc embossed leather in a shade of midnight blue to add texture and dimension. The result is Navy Madeleines, a perfect hybrid of romance and edge. Pair it with jeans or your most daring heels—it’s as versatile as it is fresh.

This print feels denim-friendly and season right. It’s a transitional, year-round floral.

So, there you have it. This centerpiece of our new collection is bound to be a conversation piece wherever you take it.  

Put the petal to the metal, and keep on styling. Shop the full collection here
