Marc Jacobs Debuts New Handbag Line:  Includes all Price Points

Marc Jacobs announced during the 2015 fall ready-to-wear season that he would be dropping his Marc by Marc Jacobs  line and consolidating his brand into one line. 

True to Jacobs' word, the single brand will indeed encompass products at a huge range of price points, which should put to rest any lingering fears from Marc by Marc Jacobs fans that the designer would largely abandon contemporary priced bags.

In fact, +WWD  reports that the majority of Jacobs' accessories (which the brand hopes will grow to constitute 70% of its total business, according to CEO Sebastian Suhl) will be priced at or below the $500 mark.

The bags now available at Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom from the newly consolidated line demonstrate the wide price point the brand intends to span.

On the lower end, simple leather totes and shoulder bags will set you back $400 to $650, while at the higher end, exotic, heavily embroidered runway pieces tip the scales at $5,500.

Marc Jacobs  does a good job demonstrating why the most expensive bags cost that much: they're clearly made of fine materials and covered in time-consuming details.

 ❤ Marc Jacobs Collage Leather Crossbody Bag - $450

Chanel Quietly Adds Online Sunglasses

Several months ago Chanel announced plans to expand its retail presence  on its official website, and this month, we got the first peek at what the brand has in store. 

Via, you can now browse and buy  a large selection of sunglasses, which is one step closer to the online handbag sales we're so desperately hoping will one day appear.

The site offers almost 250 sunglasses options, all categorized by both frame shape and arm embellishment. The brand's sunnies aren't currently available for purchase online anywhere else, which marks this as new territory for the brand's digital shopping endeavors. 

Just a few of my favorites . . .

Diane von Furstenberg's Secret Agent Bag for Fall 2015

A woman’s handbag has been said to be an extension of her wardrobe, accompanying her nearly everywhere and acting as a chic vessel for necessities and indulgences alike. 

How to transition a bag from day to night is a logistical problem that plagues every woman at some point, and the Secret Agent Bag has a great way to solve it.

The bag’s front pocket zips off to create a stylish grab-and-go envelope-style clutch; if you’re headed from work to drinks, leave the tote portion of the design in the office and take just the clutch.

DVF  offers additional “Agents” (the zip-on front clutch) to make your Secret Agent your own, which provides plenty of opportunity for both structural and aesthetic versatility, all in one bag.

Apple Introduces the Hermès iPhone Watch 

Apple Inc. and Hermès  International announced Wednesday that they have created a new version of Apple’s smartwatch.

The watch, which will go on sale Oct. 5, will marry bands made in Hermès’ signature leather with a specially designed user interface.

The Hermès  watch will have a choice of three bands with the stainless steel face: a single leather loop, a double loop and a cuff. 

The double loop only comes with the 38mm face, while the thicker cuff only has the 42mm version. 

The bands are available in several colors of leather. The price will range from $1,100 to $1,500.

To display the time, Apple adapted three fonts Hermès has long used in its watches. When the watch face displays the Hermès user interface, neither the Apple name nor logo is visible.
