Take The Quiz: Which Mini Priscilla Style Are YOU?

Screen Shot 2018-08-20 at 1.01.03 PM.png

Every handbag — like every handbag owner — has a personality. Bright and outgoing; functional and classic; trendy and fearless; the list goes on and on. What makes shopping so much fun is discovering those statement pieces that speak to you on a personal level. (Our mentality: Your handbag is practically glued to your arm, so shouldn't it feel like a seamless continuation of you?)

To make finding your handbag match-made-in-heaven easier than ever, we put our heads together to create The Mini Priscilla personality quiz. Take it for a spin here to figure out which style is bound to be your next bag BFF — and don't be afraid to take it twice, because it is possible to have more than one bestie in your lineup, after all. ;)

Shop:

From left to right: the Mini Priscilla in Travertine Ballington, $325.00; the Mini Priscilla in Tart Melbourne, $265.00; the Mini Priscilla in Black Topsail, $325.00; and the Mini Priscilla in Multi Hansen; $315.00.

Brahmin Breaks Down the Met Gala

Lucky for us, this week started off exceptionally strong. The fifth of May (aka Cinco de Mayo) always has a celebratory vibe in the air, with future thoughts of margaritas and Mariachi music. This year however Cinco de Mayo had some serious competition, arguably the biggest and most glamorous fashion event of the year: The Met Gala. 

#Brahmin Fashion Trends

Hosted annually by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Vogue Magazine, the Met Gala brings together the best of the best from the fashion, art and entertainment worlds, an impressive group of renowned individuals who have mastered their own craft, and come together once a year to celebrate the craft of another. This year's gala commemorated Charles James, "America's best-known couturier." Although the name may be unfamiliar, James' highly structured ball gowns and unique architectural designs paved the way for some of today's most notable designers. 

#Brahmin Fashion Trends

We couldn't help but notice the fashion on the Red Carpet was extremely familiar. Black floral prints, pops of pink, black and white stripes, sunny hues and grey color block were all reminiscent of trends we've recently seen. Enter Brahmin's Summer Collection. Black Rousseau, Pink Lychee Melbourne, our Black Signature Stripes, Orange Sorbet Melbourne and Grey Canton color block are all new styles that were translated to the Met Gala Red Carpet. Don't believe us? See for yourself below!

What was your favorite "Brahmin inspired" Met Gala fashion? 

Happy hump day!

Spring Inspiration 2014

It may not feel like spring outside but we have officially sprung ahead, our spring 2014 collection is starting to hit stores and we couldn't be more excited. Now, if only the weather could take a hint. Our spring collection kicks off with a cool color palette, filled with clean whites, subtle shades of blue and pops of refreshing hues. Inspired by the Chinoiserie movement of the seventeenth century, our designers created the collection with an "east meets west" perspective. Drawing from European artistic styles while incorporating western Chinese influences, resulting in a unique twist on tradition.
