Last week, Brahmin in conjunction with Vogue hosted a preview event for Brahmin's new store in the Dallas Galleria. Specifically, this event introduced new designs for fall 2011 - the Olivia Rose in Luna Polka Dot, with a signature hanging rose detail and quirky polka dot pattern.
The event was really fun! While everyone in attendance enjoyed cocktails and a DJ, it was the bags that received the most attention.
The brand, which has been around since 1982, is trying to increase awareness, and working with Vogue will do just that. There is a beautiful Brahmin ad in the November issue of Vogue showing two bags from fall - their rich red leather Kelsey tote, and their smokey grey Tyler bag, meant to attract a younger working professional. Brahmin's products are artfully crafted and look luxurious, yet are affordable compared to luxury leather goods from high-end brands.
My greatest love for Brahmin lay in the wide range of colors and styles available in their leather goods. From rich browns and smokey greys to snake-print and embossed crocodile, there was a bag that would go with every piece in my wardrobe. I will definitely keep up with Brahmin to see what they do next!
