Our buffet of bags is coming to a close today . Of course though we saved the best for last! Today’s features embody the handbag trends of the season, and yet can easily evolve as a classic in your wardrobe for seasons to come. Embellishments, vibrant colors and faux skins are all “go to” designs in this area. Check below and see the heavy hitters of the season, beware you might want to keep a napkin handy in case you drool.
Rebecca Minkoff has such an amazing collection this season and this red iguana “Nikki” bag is the crem de la crem. The color is insane, the hardware is perfection and the shape is function meets fashion! www.shopbop.com
Only Alexander Wang could make this innocent silhouette look totally bad ass. His “Betty” textured flap bag is the stuff dreams are made of. This bag can transition from day to night easily, has a touch of embellishment and it’s the right balance of corporate life meets young hollywood. Soo Major. www.AlexanderWang.com
The “Daphne” duffel by Alexander Wang is another success, especially if you walk around with your apartment under your arm. This duffel has such great texture and space which makes it student and travel friendly. Woo hoo. www.AlexanderWang.com
I know I’ve hit Alexander overload, but his bags are so on point this season. They are such a great mix of hard and soft, very rocker chic. This “Hillary” bag is the perfect example of that. www.AlexanderWang.com
Holy Gorgeous! What a winner. The “Mary Lou” satchel by Dolce and Gabbana is lady who lunches… in the meatpacking (So long Upper East Side!). You can’t deny it’s all about the marriage of beautiful classic style and the fierce flare of today’s edge. www.DolceandGabbana.com
I <3 this little number! The overall color is a great backdrop for such an extravagantly organized display of studs and such. The fact that this big comes with a messenger strap is simply marvelous, this way you don’t develop carpal tunnel syndrome
If you haven’t noticed a trend yet, there were a few designers for the Fall 2009 season whose entire collection was irresistable, and Miu Miu was one of them! Here’s another gem that embodies everything an “it” bag should be!
Last but not least, THE CHOSEN ONE, my Fall 2009 handbag! Glossy texture, neutral color and just the right amount of hardware to let people know I mean business! It’s so chic, even my pajamas look fantastic next to it, right like I’d ever wear pajamas out… hah.
Ahh the bonanza has come to end. It was fun, and I’m happy to hear a couple people have loved what was shown and they too have found their love for the fall! Well, then I’ve done my job Have a great weekend and check back Monday to read about a special little something going on with our friends @ ShopItToMe!
Ciao for now,
