I usually try to do a mix of designers that I consider the haves and have nots (in terms of press and pr that is). Goldenbleu has definitely gotten their share of press but it has been well deserved...and I like their story. Designer Rene Huber, tired of mass produced handbags, decided to create some of her own. The response was overwhelming enough to consider a new career and Rene launched Goldenbleu. The point? Move to San Franciso, they'll buy anything. Kidding. Seriously, it doesn't happen often in an overcrowded market and it's great to see well designed items. Now if only the magazines can catch up with the rest of the fabulous designers out there. Check out Goldenbleu here.
