Meet the newest object of my affection: the Gregger Leather Tote. Gregger (yes we’re on a first name basis already) is part of the Ben Minkoff collection, Rebecca Minkoff’s latest line of men’s bags. This tote has a modern military vibe and a removable laptop sleeve. The rest of the collection include leather messengers, iPad cases, computer bags, and iPad sling bags, which are a sort of murse that hold an iPad.

The problem with pretty laptop sleeves is that you hardly ever get to see them when they’re stuffed in your purse. (Unless you take to carrying around your laptop as a huge clutch, which doesn’t seem very comfortable, safe, or practical.) Enter Rebecca Minkoff and her wonderful laptop carrier that’s half purse, half case. Both business-y and fashion-y, the alligator-embossed leather holder is accommodating enough to hold all your other necessaries, or is slim enough to complement a second purse.
A BFF necklace is a nice token of affection, but here’s a new way to show your best bud how much she’s really worth: Rebecca Minkoff’s Best Friends Pouches, perfect to use as simple wallets or for storing loose change. The inspiration for these cute leather accessories apparently came from someone who told the designer, “Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.” A sweet sentiment to keep in mind … each time you reach for your credit card.
Handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff has won over shoppers for years now with her popular “morning after” purse, which is pretty much the perfect bag. So when Minkoff recently expanded her empire to include a small collection of clothing, we were naturally excited. Her fall ready-to-wear line has just been posted on Shopbop, and the designs are fairly strong—although, obviously the power piece is that incredible purple pleated blazer (can’t say we’ve seen a lot like it). The rest of the collection includes tops with buttons and zippers that are placed in ways mirroring RM’s handbags, as well as some softer items like a vintage-y polka dot blouse and a floral robe dress.
Only thing is, the collection is expensive. Like, really expensive. Perhaps Minkoff just knows that if her cult clients put down for a bag, they’d be just as pumped for clothes as well. What do you think? [Shopbop.com] Keep reading »
If you couldn’t get your hands on one of last season’s “I Am Not A Plastic Bag” shopping totes, this Rebecca Minkoff bag will make an even better impression. With a nod toward Parisian lifestyle, the front pockets sport your love for the most essential food groups — carbs and alcohol. As an added bonus, the bag is crafted from eco-friendly organic cotton.
