The economy may be in the tank, but that hasn’t stopped celebrities from putting their stamp on pricey fashion lines. Next up is “Heroes” resident cheerleader, Hayden Panettiere, who has collaborated with Dooney & Bourke to create the Hayden Clutch, a striking jewel-toned clutch with a dramatic gold lion’s head closure (apparently Hayden is a Leo). Priced at $295, the clutch comes in blue, red, green, brown, and cream with gold piping, which gives it some everyday potential - but perhaps not so much evening potential. What do you think? Are you in love? Or would you rather spend your hard-earned money on a bigger label?

Just in time for the holidays, Coach has launched the Amanda collection. Handbags, wristlets, and pouches in delicious jewel tones that amp up the standard LBD with just the switch of a purse. Yes, the bags are satin, so we aren’t sure how they’ll hold up, but you can guarantee they’ll catch some attention thanks to the gold trim and candy colors like hot pink, lime and grape. Coach has come out with an interesting new collection - the Amanda. The Amanda range presented in satin comes in fun, flirty shapes and eye catching jewel tones giving an elegant look for a night out of town
Made from supple and discreetly perforated Monogram patent leather, the XL bag with sophisticated pleatwork for body friendliness is part of the Surya collection which was named after the Hindu Sun God because of its glowing radiance. The Surya leather is known to be qualitative and lends itself to play with feminine details as well as an array of gloss and bright colors.
Surya XL features microfiber lining and leather trimmings, golden brass pieces, press lock closure and an inside zipped pocket and interior D-ring to attach a pouch or a key holder. The bag measures 29.5" x 12.8" x 9.8" but the size could be adjusted thanks to the side buckles also made from perforated patent leather. It can be hand-held, or carried on the elbow or on the shoulder. Available at Louis Vuitton in three classy colors; Purple, Brown and Black for $3,360.

The skins arrive at the factory already laid out in perfect symmetry, ready for the expert to being his (or her) magic. Goat skins are used for the lining and this is the first part to be actually sewn.
After the lining is made, the base of the handbag is handsewn to the front and back with waxed linen thread. A double saddle stitch is used and each thrust of the needle is carefully done. A tiny hole is made with an awl before each stitch and the stitch size dictates the size of the hole. Adjustment is made for the particular grain of the leather to work with the natural pattern.
The handle comes next in the careful construction of the Kelly handbag and the shaping is done by hand with painstaking attention to detail. The layers of the stitched leather is smoothed with sandpaper and then dyed to match the handbag. Hot wax is applied to protect the handle from moisture.
The distinctive front flap is then added to the bag body and next is the distinctive hardware and 4 feet on the bottom. Each of these metal parts are hand riveted.
Believe it or not, the handbag is then ironed to gently smooth out the wrinkles in the calfskin. Last (but certainly not least!) is the famous gold stamp that says "Hermes Paris".

Fendi is known for its double F Symbol commonly referred to as the "Zucca" print in its original form and "Zucchino" in its smaller style, Fendi's iconic "double F" logo pattern was first designed by Karl Lagerfeld in the 1960s. It has been used on a variety of Fendi products, including handbags, wallets, luggage, shoes, and apparel. Kanye West once appeared at a party with the logo shaved into his head. Fendi's newest brand offering a wide variety of home furnishings. Furniture, sofas, armchairs, poufs, chaise-longues, consoles, day-beds: items of everyday life seen, interpreted, and lived with the typical Fendi style and culture. Above all this there is one common denominator: the home seen once more as the heart of a lifestyle, small pieces of furniture acting as a support for the most immediate and practical needs and more significant pieces to be personalised according to the taste. Great attention is paid to the past while tending towards the future, with considerable concern for evolution in modern design, which is interpreted, enjoyed and shared in the spirit of today’s culture. And so we find objects for the home distinguished first of all – as is the entire creation of Fendi - for their fine quality: great care and attention in the choice of fabrics and their combinations, and in the 'mix' of materials which creates new forms. All this together with the craftsmanship and attention to detail, the careful working and hand finishing, the personality which is an integral part of Fendi style. And last but not least, that creativity and imaginativeness which come from research and experiment, a mood which extends from fashion to design through the creation of personalised and personalising objects.

FoundationsThe company was begun as Fratelli Prada ( Prada Brothers steamer trunks and handbags. ) by Mario Prada in 1913 as a leathergoods shop in Milan, Italy.Not only was his shop a purveyor of leathergoods, but also sold imported English Fratelli Prada gained great reputation and came to create accounts with prominent Italian noblemen.
As a High Fashion Brand
Miuccia inherited the company in 1978 by which time sales were up to $400,000 USD. With Bertelli alongside her as business manager, Miuccia was allowed time to implement for total mind onto design. She would go on to incorporate her ideas into the House of Prada that would transform it into a label of renown. She released her first set of backbacks and totes in 1979. They were made out of a tough military spec black nylon that her grandfather had used as coverings for his steamer trunks. Initial success was not instant, as they were hard to sell due to the lack of advertising and high-prices, but the lines would go on to become her first commercial hit. Next, Miuccia and Bertelli sought out wholesale accounts for the bags in upscale department stores and boutiques worldwide. In 1983, Prada opened a second boutique in Millan reminiscent to the original shop, but with a sleek and modern contrast to it. It was opened in the historic and upscale shopping district of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
A New look on the 21'st Century
It suspended to merging and purchasing in 2000s, however, a loose agreement was signed in with Azzedine Alaia. Personal skin care products were introduced in the United States in October 2000 (a 30-day supply of cleansing lotion going for the retail price of $100 USD). To help pay of depts of over $850 million USD, the company planned on offering 30% of the company on the Milan Stock Exchange to the public on June 2001. However, the offering was slowed down after a decline in luxury goods spending in the United States and Japan. In 2001, under the pressure of his bankers, Bertelli also sold all of Prada's 25.5% share in Fendi to LVMH to help reduce Prada's debt. He raised only $295 million USD.
Prada, along with fellow fashion houses Calvin Klein and Gucci, is known for its practice of casting new models to walk exclusively in their runway shows. Usually, one of the models chosen as an exclusive will be selected to open the Prada show. An exclusive or opening spot in a Prada show is among the most coveted bookings in the modeling world, since it usually leads to greater success in future seasons, as well as in the campaign/editorial field. Previous Prada exclusives and openers who have gone on to enjoy success in the fashion world include Daria Werbowy, Gemma Ward, Suvi Koponen and Sasha Pivovarova, who went on to appear in Prada's ad campaigns for six consecutive seasons after opening the Prada Fall 2005 runway show.
