New Releases From Some Favorite Handbag Designers

We’re always on the look out for new deals and innovative new designs and this month the task seemed especially easy. I’m not sure if there’s something in the water with the northern summer coming on but some of our favorite handbag designers have fantastic new releases and in one case some amazing new bargains in their designer bag clearance sales.

Featured below are new offerings from Lux Lair, Gunas, Malia Designs and, of course Amazon who are always worth a look. If you’re interested in something you see here you have a number of options – click on the heading to go to the designers site then browse around yourself or click on either the picture or the name of the bag itself to go to a purchase page for that particular item. I always appreciate comments and am also happy to respond to questions you may have, so feel free to leave them in the box at the bottom of the page. Our Facebook page is also developing nicely so you may wish to like / follow us there so you don’t miss out on future updates and “specials”.

Gunas New York – Clearance Specials

Gunas is a 100% vegan designer handbag outlet. Formed by Sugandh G. Agrawal, GUNAS’s heart and soul screams to be the voice of animals. With an award winning design and business background, Sugandh quit her 7-year corporate career as an Industrial designer at KitchenAid to start her own brand of cruelty-free fashion in New York. Her mission is strong and clear. Animals are NOT meant to be a part of fashion. It’s difficult to disagree with their ethics but more importantly I think you’ll be impressed by their innovative designs, right on trend if not ahead of it. We can only display a few of their novel designs here and suggest you check out their complete range – we know you’ll be impressed.

Their handbags are handcrafted in Cambodia and they live by their byline “Designed to Carry a Cause”.

  1. Wow, Amazing review in here. Its so nice and unique having review on these wonderful latest handbags. When it come to fashion I will surely be around. These handbags list are fascinating as I don’t know which to give the best. This is a timely post as my finance birthday is approaching. I do love to get her the Mini Nolita Leather Satchel Handbag (Black). I already viewing how excited she would be. Which other store to get this amazing handbags aside amazon?

    • Thanks for you comment and good luck getting a bag for your fiance.  As to where you can get a satchel bag other than Amazon, it depends a bit on where you are in the world.  I’d check out Mother Erth or perhaps Runway Catalog both of which have good international delivery systems and a reasonable range.

  2. Awesome review! I am very much interested in the leather satchel. I currently have a wine red leather satchel that goes with my wine red leather jacket and boots. Can you tell what my favourite colour is? Heehee. 😉
    My satchel is starting to fall apart unfortunately- and I havn’t been able to find another one like it. Black may be an option though- as that shade goes with almost anything. hey-if you come across any wine red satchels let me know!

    Great post. Keep up the great work. I will be back.

    • I love a challenge Darc’ie so I’ll keep an eye out for you. There’s bound to be some good options out there. I assume you want something plain rather than too patterned? I’ll email you directly when I find something that may suit.

  3. Hello Mike,
    Awesome new arrival handbags indeed. One handbag is very attracted to me. The Mini Lolita Leather Satchel Handbags in black colour from Coach. I think the price is a little bit high. Maybe its because the price is in dollar currency. No doubt the high price, the better the quality. Well, thanks for sharing these beautiful bags.

    • Thanks for your comment Ranao and yes the price may seem high especially in dollars but these designer bags represent great value which is what I suggest you look for. Coach produce quality designs with high quality standards.  Yes you can get cheaper, mass produced bags you can use a few times then throw away.  As you point out, in the designer market you get what you pay for and the trick is, as in this case, to find the quality on special through a sale.

  4. Such an amazing article on the review of the latest handbags. I’m looking for a special handbag for my very special person. It’s for my girlfriend’s birthday. Your article helped me a lot in this case. In your list, I have found such amazing and great quality handbags. I really liked the “About Last Night” because it has 22 Karat gold plated brass hardware. She likes gold a lot and I think if she watches this she will definitely like this one. Can I get this handbag from Alibaba?
    Have a great day.
    Tushar 🙂

    • Glad you like the clutch and I’m sure your girlfriend will too.  Unfortunately this will not be available from Alibaba.  Of their nature this kind of designer, ethical bad is quite exclusive and the designers guard their designs quite closely as you would expect.

  5. Thank you, I am in need of a new bag and really enjoyed reading through your descriptions. I never knew I wanted a card holder, but fell in love with the Seafoam Elephant Card Holder bag, now I certainly think I need one, lol. Your photos are clear and the description with each bag interesting. I will be bookmarking your site for upcoming Christmas shopping!

    • Yes the Seafoam design is quite a startling design and very popular. Until the powers that be sort out an electronic way to safely store all our cards safely these are becoming an essential item so you may as well get a nice one. If you’re starting Christmas shopping already you must be much better organised than I am … impressive lol.

  6. Hi, Great post and this would certainly help my decision when buying a bag for my wife’s birthday. You have created a great selection of nice brands, including Gucci. I really like that brown bag, and I wish I had the means to buy it for her, maybe in the future. Is it available for the UK?

  7. Wow, what an amazing collection of beautiful bags! I’m definitely a handbag girl, and all my family are well aware of this as I get them for almost every Christmas and birthday and never get fed up with them. I probably have a collection of over 50 now, so I always have something for every occasion.

    You have a few on here that have really caught my eye. I love the evening clutch bags, they seem big enough to get all your essentials in (I own a couple that can barely fit a lippy in let alone your cash and phone) as this this is a big consideration.

    I’ve put a couple on my wish list 🙂

    Just to let you know, you have the second two bag images mixed up when you click through on them so you may want to change it.

    • Glad you like the latest collection. Some real works of art in the ranges coming out for the northern summer.

      Nice catch on the bag image link. I’ve given myself a sound telling off and corrected it. Thanks for letting me know.
