NYC Events. Juicy Couture Holiday 2010 Handbag Collection Unveiling

October 5, 2010 • Events

The Juicy Couture Showroom and dispaly of bags!

Last week I booked a sitter and ventured out to attend the Juicy Couture Holiday Handbag Soiree at their showroom in Times Square. I needed a little 'me' time, you know, to check out handbags, drink some wine and hang out with some adults! To me, that's the perfect evening.

The scene

The keychain table where we each picked 2 charms to create our own.

As soon as I walked through the door I checked out the new collection of handbags for the holidays by Juicy Couture handbag designer, Kirsten Schwinn. One popped out as my favorite immediately, but I had to first sit with astrologer Karen Thorne to see which type of bag fit my reading best. Hey…it's okay to have a little baggage, right?

I won't get into details, but in a nutshell Karen told me not only am I on the path for health, wealth, happiness and infamy (heck if even half is correct, I'll take it) the bag I gravitated towards was the right one for me! Good thing to know I get myself!



Which bag was that, you ask? A purple luxe chiffon bag. It's perfect for me because it opens wide (which was confirmed I need) and a little over the top. I can't have a tight little bag where I fumble for eveything. However, the Juicy Couture Holiday 2010 handbag collection offers something for every woman this season. The feminine, textured collection strikes a delicate balance between whimsical and polished, creating forward-thinking pieces without abandoning Juicy’s roots.

This was my personal favorite. The luxe chiffon Daydreamerbag $398 

How perfect are these bow clutches for the holidays and beyond?


The Lena soft leather tote with gold chains and understated embossed logo makes the perfect everyday bag. A bit more on the festive side are a series of black wool day bags embellished with a smattering of pleated silk bows appliquéd in overlapping layers. Silver chains finish the bag’s simple silhouettes — the Sarah hobo, Georgiana satchel and structured Monroe — all of which will take you from day to night without a hitch.

The Juicy Couture holiday 2010 Gifting Bow Capsule covers it all. Plush self-tied bows take shape in crushed velvet clutches and chic chain-strapped cross bodies in lame-coated and foil dotted suede. The pouchette chiffon with a gold chain offers elegance without a hint of seriousness. And, if you’re going for unforgettable, the Luxe Day Dreamer in black chiffon, or the full on surface gold sequin clutch are the way to go.

In a nod to Juicy heritage, the iconic Day Dreamer gets a facelift in heavy quilted leopard with luggage handle detailing, while the rugby stripe totes takes a heavy dose of sequins and velour. Grosgrain detailing and clever sayings like “more is more” enliven classic day totes.
