New at BagBunch: Hype Naomi Oversized Clutch | Crumpled Leather Rope Purse

Hi mary,

Check out the latest handbag fashion news and review at BagBunch.com:
  1. Hype Naomi Oversized Clutch | Crumpled Leather Rope Purse - 2010-03-22 18:35:56-04
    Over-sized clutches are still loved by the fashion jetset - and the Hype Naomi bag is one of the most unusual designs. Whilst this wrinkled leather purse does conform to the current predilection towards large rectangular bags, the designer breaks up the norm with the uniquely textured plum leather, and the unusual matching rope clasp. I do [...]
  2. Cole Haan Ruby Wristlet | Psychedelic Colored Satin Clutch Purse - 2010-03-23 00:16:06-04
    Cole Haan takes us back to the sixties with this wild psychedelic Ruby Wristlet. I love the way the printed mosaic blends jewels and tiles in bright red and purple. It clashes of course, but the woven look brings it all together to work somehow. While I'm a fan of the print, Cole Haan knew it [...]
  3. Hobo International Effe Clutch | Patent Leather Zipper Purse - 2010-03-23 01:03:08-04
    Once famous for its traditional handbag designs, Hobo International has been pushing the fashion envelope of late. This Effe clutch features the contemporary looks we're beginning to associate with this classic brand. The Effe's patent leather finish is available in many shades, from predictable choices like black and white to more lurid hues of fuchsia and [...]
  4. Kooba Millie Shoulder Tote | Classic Leather Handbag with Modern Prism Stitching - 2010-03-23 02:05:08-04
    Kooba combines classic good looks with a dash of modern style for this Millie shoulder bag. At first glance, this Kooba bag doesn't appear too different from a million others you'd see in the fashion mags. The glazed leather is lovely to be sure, but it's not very unique. But look closer and you'll see gorgeous [...]
  5. Chak Chel Makes Eco-Friendly Purses with Mayan Material - 2010-03-23 03:05:20-04
    Chak Chel blends a contemporary eco-friendly ethos with old world fabrics for its fashions and handbags. Each Chak Chel creation is made from vintage huipil, the same woven material the Mayans used to craft tunics and blouses. Chak Chel combines this fabric with modern organic cotton and repurposed materials. Each is dyed using traditional eco-friendly techniques, [...]
  6. Baggallini Teenee Bagg | Mini Nylon Convertible Travel Purse - 2010-03-23 04:05:22-04
    Baggallini downsizes its popular and practical purses with this teeny-tiny Teenee Bagg. So often small bags favor a pretty visage over practicality, but Baggallini has never been about following fads. Instead it packs plenty of value into this tiny space. There are two external zip pockets, and another one hidden inside. There are a couple of [...]
  7. Isabel Toledo Teams with Payless for Affordable Handbags and Shoes - 2010-03-23 05:05:26-04
    We can soon get the First Lady's look for less, with Isabel Toledo confirmed to design a capsule collection for Payless. The line won't feature a suit like the pale yellow-green one Michelle Obama wore at the president's inauguration, but it will include affordable handbags and shoes. The range will feature a fun selection of fabrics, [...]
  8. Oryany Handbags Jessica Slouchy Tote | Two-Face Canvas Purse - 2010-03-23 16:55:47-04
    This Jessica tote is great for gals who are channeling that hippy chic look, but in a luxury way. Oryany handbags are a little known brand, but they produce some really unusual and interesting handbags. They definitely cater to that high fashion crowd who can make a giant cardigan and pair of wet look leggings look [...]
  9. Marc by Marc Jacobs Kelsey Zipped Leather Bag | Hip Turquoise Leather Shoulder Bag With Zipper Details - 2010-03-23 17:04:39-04
    One of the things that I love about Marc Jacobs is that his lines never look trendy or overplayed, but they always seem really relevant to whatever is going on in fashion at the moment. The color, shape, and embellishment of the Kelsey have an undeniable 80's influence, but the whole package looks modern and [...]
  10. Nine West Zip Clutch | Semi-Circular Primary Color Purse - 2010-03-23 18:40:54-04
    Here we have yet another smart purse from reasonably priced designer, Nine West. This zip clutch isn't overly decorated or over-the-top, which is good - because anything else would have detracted from the great and unusual shape. Those curved edges are further emphasised by the zip covering the length of the flap, which of course is [...]
  11. Kavu Belt It Bag | Durable Casual Cotton Canvas Messenger Handbag - 2010-03-24 00:37:01-04
    This Belt It Bag from Kavu is tough enough to survive an adventure in the great outdoors. This messenger style bag isn't very flashy, but it doesn't need to be. Rather than impressing other bagistas, the Belt It just wants to get the job done. It does that with its durable cotton canvas body and functional [...]
  12. Carlo Fellini Monica Purse | Affordable Satin Clutch with Beaded Frame - 2010-03-24 02:05:52-04
    Carlo Fellini has tweaked the classic satin clutch purse to create the Monica. The style is traditional to be sure, but it's those individual touches that make all the difference. The beautiful satiny body is tightly pleated to create dramatic waves and texture. These tiny pleats take the traditional satin body to a new place, and [...]
  13. Lindsay Lohan To Design Ed Hardy Handbags - 2010-03-24 03:05:49-04
    After unceremoniously receiving the boot from Ungaro, actress Lindsay Lohan is moving on to another fashion endeavor. The Mean Girls star now plans to design handbags for Ed Hardy. "Lindsay and the design team at Ed Hardy have mutual friends, and they knew she was interested in looking for a handbag license and partner," an anonymous [...]
  14. Linea Pelle Alex Corset Hobo | Modern Italian Leather Slouchy Handbag - 2010-03-24 04:05:00-04
    It might take its inspiration from the Victorian era, but the Alex Corset Hobo from Linea Pelle is all modern. The name comes from the large criss-cross stitches which accent the top corners and base. They resemble the lacing used to tighten an old-fashioned corset, but unless you knew the name you probably wouldn't make the [...]
  15. Eco-Friendly Millican Rucksacks and Travel Bags Inspired by Local Adventurers - 2010-03-24 05:05:23-04
    The styling is decidedly vintage, but the environmentally friendly materials used in Millican's rucksacks and travel bags are very modern. The classic, functional unisex bags are crafted from sustainable fabrics including weatherproof organic cotton, recycled polyester, and Lakeland wool. The leather accents may not impress many animal rights activists, but at least Millican uses natural vegetable [...]
  16. Tommy Hilfiger Santa Clara Tote | Fun Cotton Floral Summer Bucket Handbag - 2010-03-24 06:05:19-04
    Tommy Hilfiger hits every summer trend with the Santa Clara Tote. The fun floral print and bold color combination makes me think of loud Hawaiian shirts and balmy tropical weather. Of course, that illusion won't suit the High Street, but that's not where you'll find the Santa Clara. It's much more at home holding your towels [...]
  17. Cole Haan Eve Tote | Small Woven Triangle Bag - 2010-03-24 09:33:09-04
    Woven black bags aren't exactly revolutionary - but a really well done version can definitely be worth spending your money on. OK, so this Cole Haan tote isn't high fashion. It isn't jumping aggressively on the bandwagon of every trend that passes through town. It isn't even in a bright or unusual color. Despite this, however, [...]
  18. KC Malhan Grecian Clutch | Sequined Multicolored Affordable Purse - 2010-03-24 18:24:14-04
    It isn't very often that I come across an affordable (nay, cheap!) handbag that I really really like. However, this KC Malhan sequined clutch costs just $24, and looks lovely. $24 I hear you ask? And it is fair to question it! However, despite the fact that handbag designers seem to feel they have to charge [...]
  19. J. Furmani Pleated Metallic Flap Clutch | Affordable Pewter Rhinestone Accented Evening Purse - 2010-03-25 02:05:56-04
    All too often metallic purses look gaudy or garish, but when you find just the right one it can make your little black dress pop. I think this J. Furmani Pleated Metallic Flap Clutch is a real contender for the title. The secret is the rich pewter color which looks like smooth liquid metal. The pleats [...]
  20. Lindsay Lohan Denies Designing for Ed Hardy - 2010-03-25 03:05:10-04
    While sources earlier this week had Lindsay Lohan touted to design for Ed Hardy, the Hollywood actress has quickly quashed the rumors. Li-Lo took to Twitter to tell fans she planned to focus on her own 6126 label instead. "FYI ... I am NOT designing for Ed Hardy. JUST 6126," the starlet Tweeted. I must admit, I'm [...]
  21. Betsey Johnson Betseyville Blingin' Tiger Tote Bag | Hot Pink Canvas North/South Bag with Crystals - 2010-03-25 04:05:23-04
    Betsey Johnson is back to what she does best with this Blingin' Tiger Tote from her Betseyville line. Of course, for many bagistas Betsey Johnson's best is their worst nightmare. It takes a certain kind of girl to warm to this hotter than hot pink cotton canvas tote with its crystal accents. But for those girls, [...]
  22. Pour La Victoire Adds Rock and Roll Handbags to Fashion Collection - 2010-03-25 05:05:17-04
    After making a splash with its stylish boots and sandals, Pour La Victoire has announced it will add handbags to its new season fall collection. The brand is starting small with 12 black leather handbags featuring a curious blend of equestrian and military influences. I love the music inspired purse names which include the Joplin, the [...]
  23. J.Renee Decorative Seahorse Clutch | Pearlized Formal Evening Bag - 2010-03-25 09:12:42-04
    Expect to see a lot more of these shaped J. Renee clutches on the market, as this seems to be their favourite design for spring. Aside from the color, therefore, what sets each of these bags apart from each other? Well, the answer lies in the individual decoration mounting the front of each purse - which in [...]
  24. Miu Miu Bird Suede And Python Clutch | Exotic Pink And Black Bag With Whimsical Bird Appliqué - 2010-03-25 17:23:10-04
    There's something about Miu Miu's quirky, irreverent approach to design that keeps it both bizarre and elegant. This suede and python clutch is the perfect example. The pink and black stripes are classic enough to keep this bag timeless. The shade of pink is amazingly well chosen, as one step brighter and I would be thinking [...]
  25. Coach Poppy Signature Tote | Colorful Applique Glam Handbag - 2010-03-25 18:07:00-04
    This cute colorful tote is a great and fun alternative to the normally stuffy signature totes. Whilst the Coach Poppy range is intended as a budget option, most people would accept that $265 isn't exactly bargain basement. However, you do at least get something remarkable and different for the money, rather than something everyday. Not only [...]
  26. Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo | Simple Sophisticated Black Leather Hobo With Pleating Detail - 2010-03-25 21:00:49-04
    Marc Jacobs makes bags that women everywhere covet. The Marc by Marc Jacobs line is replete with hot, young accessories while the Marc Jacobs line hits a more sophisticated demographic. The Hillier hobo walks the line between both. The pebbled leather of the bag gives the hobo shape a more classic appeal, as does the elongated [...]
  27. Roxy Honeysweet Hobo | Simple Sophisticated Budget Faux Leather Handbag - 2010-03-25 23:12:01-04
    Roxy often gets a bad review from serious fashion fans who believe the brand is just for name-brand conscious teens or surfer girls. But if you're on a budget, the label's latest bags shouldn't be overlooked. Gone are the days where Roxy bags were simply beach-worthy creations covered in colored logos. Instead the label has introduced [...]
  28. Cole Haan Prudence Hobo | Woven North/South Style Handbag with Tassel - 2010-03-26 02:05:03-04
    Cole Haan puts a stylish spin on the traditional hobo with the Prudence bag. In a world of tightly woven purses, the much larger weave of the Prudence really stands out. It might not follow the trends, but that's exactly why I like it. The north/south orientation of the hobo and the woven finish gives the [...]
  29. Louis Vuitton Loses Trademark Case Against Google - 2010-03-26 03:05:48-04
    Louis Vuitton's case against Google has come to a close, with the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg ruling in favor of the internet search engine. The ruling states that Google has not violated trademark law by selling brand-name keywords to the design house's competitors. But it's not all good news for the internet search engine. New [...]
  30. Steve Madden BDazzle Hobo | Bold Studded Silver Synthetic Handbag - 2010-03-26 04:05:23-04
    The trend for studded bags might be waning, but don't tell Steve Madden that! This BDazzle hobo puts the edgy accents up front and center! BDazzle by name and BDazzle by nature, this is one hobo that doesn't do things by halves. The front of the purse is covered in literally hundreds of the shiny accents. [...]
  31. Salvatore Ferragamo To Open Largest Asian Store in Shanghai in April - 2010-03-26 05:05:42-04
    Salvatore Ferragamo will open the doors to its new flagship store in Shanghai late next month. At 680 meters squared, it will be the brand's largest store in the Asia-Pacific region. The boutique will carry all the usual Ferragamo products and the only Creation Corner in China. This exclusive section will sell the brand's quirky museum [...]
  32. Menbur Gold Wedding Clutch | Amber Crystal Decorative Purse - 2010-03-26 05:25:11-04
    If you are looking for an expensive and classy bag for your wedding, then why not consider this Menbur clutch? First off, I  must mention that this isn't a cheap purse - it costs a massive $633! This is probably partially to do with the fact that this is designed as a wedding clutch (and all [...]
  33. Inge Christopher Margo Ripple Evening Purse | Suede Flap Bag with Silver Underlay - 2010-03-26 06:05:33-04
    The classic evening flap bag gets a modern makeover with this Margo Ripple from Inge Christopher. Rather than using the label's favorite fabrics silk and satin, Inge Christopher has opted for heavier suede here. It might seem like a strange choice for an evening bag at first, but no other material could create the structured shirred [...]
  34. Roxy Bangles Hobo Handbag | Casual Retro Canvas Beach Bag with Plastic Accents - 2010-03-27 02:05:50-04
    It might not have been inspired by Susanna Hoffs' popular girl group, but there's more than a touch of the 80s in this Roxy Bangles bag. The Bangles bag is available in four fun retro prints. The feathery aqua "Ceramic," colorful "Rfb," and stripey "Royal Purple" are probably the tamest of the bunch, in more ways [...]
  35. Bagabonn Makes Cute Purses from Duct Tape - 2010-03-27 03:05:00-04
    Just when I thought I'd seen handbags made from every material imaginable I discovered Bagabonn, an innovative label which crafts purses from duct tape! It might sound trashy, but I think the purses look great with their colorful finishes. You can choose from plain bags, those with police inspired checks, playful plaids, and on trend florals. [...]
  36. Hobo International Alene Shoulder Bag | Modern Pleated Front Leather Bag - 2010-03-27 04:05:01-04
    It seems like Hobo International purses just keep getting better and better. Once the stable of basic but boring bags, the brand has now learned how to jazz up its classic shapes with contemporary accents. The Alene shoulder bag is an excellent example of Hobo International's fresh new approach. The slightly curved corners and edgy angular [...]
  37. New Auction Website Oohilove Offers Designer Handbags for Crazy Low Prices - 2010-03-27 05:05:13-04
    A new auction site is doing its best to lure luxury lovers away from eBay. Oohilove.com offers incredible bargains on some of our favorite brands. Just last week a Gucci Interlocking Hobo Handbag went for a mere $13 (including sale price and bids), a fraction of its $1134 retail value. It all sounds too good to [...]
  38. Carlo Fellini Diamante Evening Bag | Structured Formal Frame Clutch - 2010-03-27 15:45:13-04
    Carlo Fellini channels the traditional black tie fashion with this diamante encrusted clutch. Formal evening bags have a tendency to be a little dull. However, this particular purse has a certain art deco vibe that makes a simple rectangular shape into something a lot more luxurious and gorgeous. I think it is the sold deep black [...]
  39. Mary Frances Premium Denim Clutch | Beaded and Sequined Purse - 2010-03-27 17:21:03-04
    Have you been trying to work out how to wear the denim on denim trend? If so, then this unusual Mary Frances clutch may be the answer. Most people who shy away from this trend are envisioning the terrible matching denim suits of the 90s. With something like this decorative beaded purse, however, you get the [...]
  40. Matt & Nat Laroux Clutch | Vegan Recycled Studded Purse - 2010-03-28 17:51:45-04
    Do you love leather but loathe using animal products? If so then this nappa-style earth friendly clutch bag may be the answer to the problem. Matt & Nat have always been great at using unusual recycled materials to create stylish bags. Sometimes their designs err on the side of caution, but with the Laroux clutch they [...]
  41. PETA Takes Anti-Snakeskin Stance, Urges Celebs to Go Faux - 2010-03-28 22:47:20-04
    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has launched a new campaign reminding the stars that wearing genuine exotic skin fashions is just as unethical as wearing real fur. Celebs including Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Victoria Beckham were all sent this video urging them to reject clothing and accessories made from [...]
  42. Ellington Laurel Backpack | Unique Modern Nylon Tan Bag - 2010-03-29 00:10:12-04
    Ellington gives the traditional backpack a modern makeover with the Laurel. The revamp is purely aesthetic, with sleek, clean lines giving the Laurel an almost futuristic appearance. I love the look, but think it's a shame Ellington haven't offered us more cutting edge colors. This conservative tan shade is frankly drab, and a less than ideal [...]
  43. Authentic Recycled Military Bags from Jack & Marjorie - 2010-03-29 00:19:03-04
    Many fashion labels offer military inspired bags, but few can claim the army cred of Jack & Marjorie handbags. The Canadian company turns surplus military materials into unique handbags. The body of this gorgeous Snowberry bag is made from wool blankets, while its handle is a recycled rifle sling strap. Other Jack & Marjorie purses are [...]
  44. Coach Madison Ocelot Convertible Hobo | Gray Snow Leopard Print Purse - 2010-03-29 01:43:07-04
    Coach walks the wilder path less traveled with this Madison purse. Handbags emblazoned with tiger stripes and python scales are almost commonplace these days, so Coach takes its inspiration from the spots of the snow leopard! The result is a bag more sedate than many adopting animal prints. While most delight in colorful contrasts, here we [...]
  45. Fendi Orange Baguette Bag | Bright Orange Leather Shoulder Handbag - 2010-03-29 02:54:42-04
    Nobody but nobody does a baguette bag like Fendi. Purses like this remind us exactly why. The first thing that hits you is that orange lamb leather; the sort of vivid shade generally reserved for artificially sweetened sodas and summer fruits. It's an eye-catcher, so Fendi keeps the rest of the details subtle. We get sleek, [...]
  46. Leather Jackets Get Second Life with Matières à Réflexion Handbags - 2010-03-29 03:05:24-04
    Leather is rarely considered an eco-friendly choice, but French brand Matières à Réflexion challenges that notion with its repurposed leather handbags. By using recycled leather, Matières à Réflexion creates buttery soft purses that are as green as they are unique. Old French military jackets, blue denim jeans, and heavy canvas are turned into unisex purses in [...]
  47. Ashley M Coca Cola Camo Barrel Bag | Camouflage Print Canvas Handbag - 2010-03-29 04:05:34-04
    Ashley M is famous for its gimmicky purses, so I was surprised to see the company is behind this camo barrel bag. While the Coca Cola print is something of a novelty, this bag is also very practical. The combination of canvas body and khaki camouflage print gives this barrel bag a unisex military feel. That [...]
  48. Me + You Equals Fun Environmentally Friendly Shopping Totes - 2010-03-29 05:05:05-04
    Me + You create reusable shopping bags with attitude! Totes like this Cheeky organic cotton bag drive home the eco-friendly message with real personality. There are plenty of eco-friendly shoppers in the marketplace, but the bold statements, double-reinforced straps, and extra pockets hidden inside Me + You bags help them stand out from the pack. Each also [...]
  49. Guess Plaid Belt Pouch | Modern Tartan Crown Purse with Silver Belt - 2010-03-29 06:05:36-04
    Belt pouches were once practical military accessories, but with modern brands like Guess getting in on the act they've become fun fashion items. This Guess belt pouch is crafted from contemporary red plaid material. The funky tartan print is further embellished with a rhinestone accented lurex crown; perfect for any princess! Some might accuse Guess of [...]
  50. Lauren Merkin Bella Tote | Studded Glazed Leather Satchel - 2010-03-29 08:09:47-04
    If you want luxury leather then this Lauren Merkin tote is a soft and supple option. The Bella tote is clad in the most absurdly luxurious leather. I am always a fool for pale cool gray, and the calm shade in combination with this incredibly supple glazed leather practically has me drooling and passing out. That may be [...]
