Carlos Falchi Handbags Brand Purchased by Private Investment Firm: BAGTRENDS

Dear Bagistas,

This just in:
Windsong Brands and Marvin Traub Associates have acquired the Carlos Falchi handbag brand and created Falchi Holdings LLC. The king of exotic skin handbags will remain chief designer and creative director of Falchi Holdings LLC which I hope means the vision and passion put into each handbag will remain in tact. I'm a devoted follower and admirer of Mr. Falchi's work and creative force and hope this shift of power will only lead to positive change for the 37-year-old brand. It's actually quite amazing that the company was able to remain independent for so many years. Hopefully, the next chapter of Carlos Falchi will include freestanding stores and perhaps an expansion into shoes.

I once had the pleasure of interviewing Mr. Falchi at his New York City design studio and it was just a dream come true and probably one of my most memorable one-on-ones with a designer. Mr. Falchi was warm and open, sharing personal stories of how he started out in the business and quickly gained a following in the music industry; how he counts Cher as a close friend; and how he views colors ... "I can taste color. Ummm," he mused. I wish him and the new firm much success and look forward to seeing what the future has in store for Carlos Falchi.

From the current season, here are my current favorites:
