Cheers to 35 Years!

If you follow us on Instagram (and you totally should - click here), you may have seen photos from our 35th anniversary soiree in NYC last week. Together with host Louise Roe, we rolled out the leather carpet and celebrated in a sea of beautiful handbags. Guests were welcomed by walking through a hallway of hanging bags from our Fall collection towards a bar underneath a wave of illuminated paper bags. They were fully immersed into the design process, surrounded by sketches, leather accents, and finished styles. Take a peek below for a glimpse into all the decadent details.  

The atmosphere: our signature leathers everywhere! A large leather wall as a backdrop for photos, a lounge with leather pillows and rug, and handbags displayed in every direction. 

The activities: Guests struck a pose for the photo booth and created custom leather key chains for their bags. Dallas Shaw illustrated guests with their handbags, while Harley Viera-Newton spun party tunes.  

The guest list: founders Bill and Joan Martin, CEO Susan Thacker, Louise Roe, editors, influencers, and more

The menu: Brahmin-themed signature cocktails, passed hors d'oeuvres, finished with sweet treats

Thank you to everyone for giving us a reason to celebrate! Cheers to the next 35 years and beyond!

35th Anniversary Collection

With so many exciting things happening around our celebration, you have been hearing about our 35th anniversary a lot lately. To commemorate some early fan favorites, we've brought some of our top styles back from the archives in a limited edition anniversary collection. Our design team had a blast looking back at old sketches, catalogs, and photos and redesigning select styles with a modern spin. Do you believe that some of the exact same Italian leathers are used in these styles that were used 35 years ago? 

Read on to see the full collection, now available for a limited time.  

The Flower is a classic silhouette with a chic minimalism. 

The Hunt is a saddle-style crossbody with a cool, retro vibe. 

The Satchel is one of our originals in a shape that has never gone out of style. 

The Index Wallet is the perfect small size with built-in functionality. The kiss-lock closure gives this style a vintage feel.  

Top any of your Brahmins with an anniversary tassel in some of our favorite Fall textures. Extra perk: monogram the limited-edition medallion to make it your own.  

Celebrate with us and shop the full collection here. Cheers to 35 years of Brahmin style and many more to come!

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
