Hi mary,

Check out the latest handbag fashion news and review at BagBunch.com:
  1. Kate Spade Eastward Avenue Kayla Mini Bag | Woven Basket and Stud Clutch - 2011-04-18 15:19:35-04
    Kate Spade is starting to make a move away from her retro inspired bags. The newer creations still use retro materials, but with a bit of a modern "twist". What we have before us today is a purse that is constructed from wicker - but rather than taking on any sort of traditional shape, it forms a cute and intricate [...]
  2. Foley + Corinna Woven Mid City Tote | Dramatic High Contrast Leather Purse - 2011-04-18 16:56:13-04
    Is it just me, or does this Foley + Corinna tote look a whole lot like a Transformer, or maybe something from the film Predator?! There is definitely a sci-fi interpretation or two in that contrasting patterned leather exterior! OK, so my inability to see past the decorative shapes means that I can't really fall in love with [...]
  3. Coach Rereleases 70s Retro Handbags | Classic Bags Exclusive to Net-A-Porter - 2011-04-18 22:22:27-04
    If you've ever longed for the Coach designs of old, make sure you hit up Net-A-Porter this summer. The American heritage label will rerelease several of its iconic 70s handbags exclusively through the high-end online store. The Coach Classics range will revive Bonnie Cashin's famous designs, which include a bucket bag, a hobo, a small shoulder [...]
  4. Quirky Recycled Harry Potter Books & Board Game Purses | Bagitude! Handbags with Attitude - 2011-04-18 23:48:12-04
    Most handbag designers create their accessories from traditional materials like leather, exotic skins, canvas, and polyester. But not Karla Staley. With her quirky fashion line Bagitude! Handbags with Attitude she's turning everyday items into wearable pieces of arm candy. Staley began turning cigar boxes into purses in her living room some 11 years ago. Since that [...]
  5. Chloe Kerala Tote | Yellow Perforated Leather Horse Bag - 2011-04-19 02:05:26-04
    Chloe celebrates spring racing season with this equestrian themed Kerala tote. The cheery yellow color is perfect for the warmer weather ahead, and the leather's perforated treatment is right on trend. But unfortunately all the embellishments muddy what was a rather appealing base. I think Chloe has taken the equestrian theme too far. The horse and horseshoe [...]
  6. Will Leather Goods Designs Tribeca Film Festival Tote | Canvas Bags for Movie Event - 2011-04-19 03:05:53-04
    Will Leather Goods has designed the official bag for this year's Tribeca Film Festival. It's a fitting project for the fashion house which owes its origins to the film industry. The company's CEO Bill Adler was formerly an actor, but needed to look at other job opportunities during the Screen Actors Guild strike of 1981. He [...]
  7. Chocolate Carla Tote | Pewter Zipper Layered Synthetic Handbag - 2011-04-19 04:05:19-04
    With Easter just around the corner men are faced with two choices. They can give the traditional gift of calorie-laden chocolate to their lady love, or they can choose a more unusual Chocolate gift like this Carla tote. It's unique, and completely guilt free! From a distance I thought this tote was decorated with an unusual [...]
  8. Lauren Merkin Hudson Clutch | Metallic Goatskin Fold-Over Purse - 2011-04-19 16:36:32-04
    If I said "dimpled metal bow", you might be forgiven for thinking that the resulting creation would be terribly ugly. Instead, however, Lauren Merkin has shown that she really can make anything work! The fold over shape of this clutch is simple, which is perhaps why the bow works so well. It is bright and shiny enough to [...]
  9. Stuart Weitzman Neutron Snake Regine Purse | Unusual Leather Cross-Body - 2011-04-19 17:08:34-04
    The Neutron Snake Regine may not be the catchiest name in the handbag world - and that over-statement is carried on in the design! What do I mean by that? Well, firstly there is the snakeskin print leather, in a mottled range of gold and brown shades. Then, on top of that, is a huge gold [...]
  10. Antik Batik Aragon Embellished Leather Shoulder Bag | Dainty and Opulent Sequined Black Bag - 2011-04-19 19:06:55-04
    Antik Batik really has the bourgeois bohemian market cornered. Their signature blend of posh luxury and hippie design makes for a really eclectic line, and one that is growing quickly in popularity. It doesn't hurt that their prices are also really reasonable. This Aragon bag is made of a leather that has a texture similar to [...]
  11. Capulet's New Luxury iPad 2 Cases | Feminine Leather Tablet Bags - 2011-04-19 19:39:32-04
    London-based women's accessories company Capulet knows that men aren't the only ones swooning over Apple's new iPad 2. And so it's created a range of luxury leather cases designed specifically for the new tablet computer. Capulet's co-founder Joyce Line said her company aims to offer "stylish and luxurious case options" for the latest gadgets as they [...]
  12. Christian Dior Timeless Wallet | Classic Bronze Leather French Purse - 2011-04-19 23:35:39-04
    Christian Dior favors classic style over fashion fads with this wallet, fittingly called Timeless. This is certainly a purse that plays by the rules. The French style is tried and true, and the golden signature logo is a classic way to brand the design. The color's called bronze, but it's nowhere near as garish as most [...]
  13. Christian Louboutin Bikini Clutch | Luxurious Pink Watersnake Evening Purse - 2011-04-20 02:05:55-04
    We all hear that we need a bikini for summer, but what if you're still carrying a few winter pounds? Well then, why not pick up this Christian Louboutin Bikini Clutch? It's guaranteed to look good, no matter what your size! That hot pink color might be too much for some women, but I'm absolutely smitten. [...]
  14. Rag & Bone's New Washington D.C. Store | Modern Fashion Brand Expands U.S. Operations - 2011-04-20 03:05:04-04
    Fashion fans will no longer need to travel to New York or Tokyo to shop at rag & bone. The modern label will open another American store on M Street in Georgetown, Washington D.C. next month. It will join the franchise's existing five stores, including those in various New York locations, including SoHo and West [...]
  15. Clara Kasavina Gardenia Puff | Lambskin Flower Decorated Evening Bag - 2011-04-20 04:05:18-04
    Spring has sprung and floral purses are popping up as rapidly as the new season's blooms. Clara Kasavina gives us a unique take on the trend with this Gardenia Puff purse. Rather than cover her bag in flowers Clara Kasavina restricts them to the hand sculpted metal plate at the top. The silver petals are adorned [...]
  16. Rumors Fly Over Galliano's Replacement | Who Will Design for Christian Dior? - 2011-04-20 05:05:09-04
    With Christian Dior remaining tight-lipped on John Galliano's replacement, the fashion industry rumor mill is in a frenzy. Women's Wear Daily reports that advisers to LVMH's Bernard Arnault have submitted a star studded list of candidates for consideration. The list features such industry heavyweights as Riccardo Tisci, Tom Ford, Olivier Theyskens, Alber Elbaz, Prabal Gurung, Nicolas [...]
  17. Cleobella Florence Satchel | Large Distressed Leather Diamond Fringe Handbag - 2011-04-20 06:05:36-04
    Cleobella takes fringing out of the sixties with this unique Florence satchel. The short, diamond shaped fringing is more biker chick than flower child. The finish is used all over the bag to ensure the black leather looks anything but basic. It adds volume and texture, and above all style. It's too edgy to win everyone [...]
  18. Miu Miu Leather Shoulder Bag | Eye-Popping Mint Green Flap Front Bag - 2011-04-20 17:13:48-04
    Miu Miu's inability to maintain a consistent aesthetic has often been a disappointment to me. Lately, I've found their designs to combine classic aesthetics with a modern sensibility in a unique and interesting way. This leather shoulder bag is a good example of what Miu Miu does best. The lively color of this bag adds a [...]
  19. Lanvin Dear Danae Cabas Two-Tone Leather Shoulder Bag | Unique Tan Tote With Clutch Option - 2011-04-20 19:00:21-04
    Lanvin's clothing line is often cutting edge, but they tend to keep their accessories very classic. Not classic in a boring way, they just seem to know when to say when when it comes to the trends. This Dear Danae bag is cutting edge in the best possible way; it combines a traditional look with [...]
  20. Coach Leather Stripe Colette Hobo | Sophisticated Green Leather Handbag - 2011-04-21 02:05:33-04
    Coach has forgotten its signature prints and colorful Poppy patterns to create this much sleeker Leather Stripe Colette Hobo. As someone who's never embraced Coach's favorite looks, I think this more minimalist approach has paid off. The green colored leather first sucked me in. The hue looks so fresh and inviting, and it's perfect for spring. [...]
  21. Michael Kors Designs Bag for Mother | New Joan Handbag Inspired by Mom - 2011-04-21 03:05:57-04
    Michael Kors didn't look to the latest pop diva or Hollywood starlet when creating his latest handbag. Instead he took inspiration from his dear old mother! Joan Kors, a former fashion model, has long been a muse for Michael Kors, so it's only fitting that she's finally got a bag that bears her name. It's a [...]
  22. Coccinelle Edith Clutch | Modern Pleated Black Leather Purse - 2011-04-21 04:05:23-04
    Some modern pleats help make this Edith clutch an accessory that'll be just as home in the daylight hours as it will at night. I wouldn't carry it to a black tie gala, but this contemporary clutch would certainly work for the evening functions on most social calendars. I can imagine carrying it to dinner at [...]
  23. Bottega Veneta Promotes Travel Bags with Short Film | Christian Weber Directed "Viaggio Notturno" Hits Internet - 2011-04-21 05:05:09-04
    Bottega Veneta is promoting its luggage and travel bags with an enigmatic short film, Viaggio Notturno. The short was filmed in New York City, the base of its director Christian Weber, and scored by Texan instrumental band Balmorhea. It reminds me a lot of the videos so many fashion labels are producing these days which favor [...]
  24. Cole Haan Claire Mini Satchel | Classic Green Leather Handbag - 2011-04-21 06:05:16-04
    They say it's not easy being green, but this Claire Mini Satchel from Cole Haan makes it look effortless! Seriously this color has sucked me in. It's poppy and youthful without being juvenile, a fresh shade sure to stand out in a sea of black, brown, and beige. I've never really been a fan of green, [...]
  25. Bag Girls Smiling Coin/Makeup Pouch | Novelty Tooth/Tongue Handbag - 2011-04-21 08:33:18-04
    I was just thinking - "the only thing my wardrobe is missing is a handbag shaped like a mouth". OK, so I clearly wasn't thinking this. I doubt anyone was. Despite this, however, someone has clearly decided that having a gobby little purse is the next big thing, and from the moment I saw it I knew I [...]
  26. Gucci New Bamboo Stud-Embellished Leather Tote | Sleek And Classic Black Handbag - 2011-04-21 19:07:25-04
    I'm not always Gucci's biggest fan. I like their old school equestrian styled accessories, but I don't always love their take on contemporary. It's just a little flashy for me. But this New Bamboo tote is anything but flashy. It's all classy, and totally covetable. I love the monochrome multi-dimensionality of this bag. The smooth black [...]
  27. Coloriffics Satin Evening Bag with Feather Accents | Affordable Gemstone Decorated Feathery Purse - 2011-04-22 02:05:42-04
    Feathers are one of those curious accents. They're a pretty cheap commodity, yet whenever they're attached to an evening purse it seems to send the price sky high. Coloriffics bucks the trend with this stylish satin evening bag. The feathers are just as lovely as any I've seen on a Christian Louboutin or Maison Martin Margiela [...]
  28. Yves Saint Laurent Artisanal Recycled Bag | New Muse Two Made by African Women from Recycled Shopping Bags - 2011-04-22 03:05:55-04
    Yves Saint Laurent has enlisted Africans artisans to give its famous Muse Two bag a green makeover. The women from the Gafreh Association, a cooperative in Burkina Faso, West Africa handmade each bag entirely from sustainable fabrics. Can you believe this purse is crafted from recycled plastic bags and fair trade woven cotton? It's incredible [...]
  29. Comme des Garcons Color-Block Fluorescent Leather Wallet | Bright Retro Spot Purse - 2011-04-22 04:05:23-04
    It's very simple, but the pop of color this Comme des Garcons color-block wallet brings has put a smile on my face. Comme des Garcons decorates this basic pouch shaped wallet with bold fluorescent hues. On the front we see part of a red spot against a bright blue background. Turn it over and the blue [...]
  30. Kipling & Gerzon Duty Free Make Travel Bags | Accessories Available Through Airline Catalogs - 2011-04-22 05:05:34-04
    Belgian handbag label Kipling has teamed up with Dutch firm Gerzon Duty Free for an accessories collection available exclusively through airline duty-free catalogs. The collection will feature a small shoulder bag, a three-piece pouch set, a travel wallet, the foldable shopper pictured, and a travel set which includes a pouch, passport case, and card holder. Each [...]
  31. Aldo Kemfort Quilted Tote | Affordable Designer Inspired Purse - 2011-04-23 15:54:10-04
    If you like Kate Spade or DKNY style but, like me, can't afford to own one of their handbags, then you need something inspired by classic designer looks - but much cheaper. The Aldo Kemfort is just the ticket! The quilted synthetic body and cute polka dot fabric bow give the 60's style that we all know and [...]
  32. Cynthia Vincent Donovan Hobo | Oversized Convertible Brown Leather Handbag - 2011-04-24 00:11:52-04
    Handbag designers have reinvented the hobo bag so many times I was starting to forget what a hobo is supposed to look like. Cynthia Vincent celebrates tradition with this classically styled Donovan bag. In a nod to the famous Scottish folk singer, this hobo sticks to its bohemian roots. The crescent shape is classic, and its [...]
  33. Angelina Jolie Named as Face of Louis Vuitton | Actress to Earn $10 Million for Advertising Campaign - 2011-04-24 00:44:06-04
    Angelina Jolie's wallet is set to become a whole fatter. The Hollywood star has just been named as the new face of Louis Vuitton. The altruistic actress will star in a worldwide advertising campaign this summer. Acclaimed photographer Annie Leibowitz will shoot the images which sources say will net Ange close to $10 million. That's a [...]
  34. Tambourine by Dan W Scout Group Satchel | Edgy Black Crinkle Leather Handbag - 2011-04-24 01:44:13-04
    Don't let the name put you off. This Dan W satchel might be called the Scout Group, but it's much more fashionable than anything I've ever seen at a jamboree! This satchel is certainly not the squeaky clean knapsack I'd expect to see a scout carrying. Its chunky hardware makes it look very edgy, and the [...]
  35. Payless Releases Eco-Friendly Shopper | Reusable Charity Bag Helps Rebuild Brazilian Forests - 2011-04-24 01:58:44-04
    Payless ShoeSource is helping to rebuild the forests of Brazil through sales of a new reusable shopping bag. In July the budget accessories chain will release a brand new limited edition shopper decorated with a gray/yellow leaf print pattern. So often reusable shoppers claim to be green as they can be reused for multiple shopping [...]
  36. Devi Kroell Wooden Clutch | Swarovski Crystal Studded Evening Purse - 2011-04-24 02:54:04-04
    Devi Kroell abandons the exotic skins she's so fond of for this fun wooden clutch purse. I'm always a little nervous when designers deviate from their signature looks, and some may say my concerns are justified here. This is a polarizing purse, but I've fallen for its retro charms. The chunky blue-green Swarovski gems are [...]
  37. Mosquito Net iPad Cases | Eco-Friendly Fair Trade Tech Accessories - 2011-04-24 03:34:31-04
    Just when I believe I've seen green accessories made from every possible material a designer comes along to surprise me. These cute iPad carry cases are actually made from repurposed mosquito nets! Now the netting won't provide much protection for your tablet, especially if you're caught in an unexpected April shower. But don't worry. The tech [...]
  38. Diane von Furstenberg Kelli Hobo | Woven Panel Ruched Cream Leather Carryall - 2011-04-24 19:55:59-04
    Diane von Furstenberg serves up a textural feast with this Kelli hobo. A woven center panel works with the Kelli's gently ruched body to create a casually cool silhouette. It's modern but not trend-conscious, so you needn't worry about the Kelli dating quickly. I really love the way the textures emphasize the buttery qualities of the leather. [...]
  39. Margaret Thatcher Handbag Auctioned | Buy Iron Lady's Asprey Bag for Charity - 2011-04-24 20:22:48-04
    A handbag owned by former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is expected to fetch around £100, 000 when it goes under the hammer for charity in June. Thatcher carried the black Asprey purse to state ceremonies and international summits, including meetings with Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan. For Thatcher her handbag was more than a mere [...]
  40. Diesel She's Got the Lock Bright Featury Shoulder Bag | Synthetic Leather Turn-Lock Handbag - 2011-04-24 21:40:08-04
    I haven't always been a fan of Diesel's trend conscious accessory designs, but I think the label's got it right with the She's Got the Lock Bright Featury shoulder bag. Silly and ridiculously long name aside, there's a lot to like about this shoulder bag. The over-sized turn-lock closure is a really striking accent, which is [...]
  41. DKNY Burnished Pleated Crossbody Bag | Flower Decorated Gray Leather Handbag - 2011-04-25 02:05:57-04
    DKNY reminds us of the devastating effect of a few well placed pleats with this Burnished crossbody bag. Those pleats are really what set this bag apart. They add volume and texture, while emphasizing the quality of that deep gray leather. I'm a real fan of that shade. It's almost black, so we can easily incorporate [...]
  42. Olivier Rousteing to Succeed Christophe Decarnin | Balmain Prepares to Name New Creative Director - 2011-04-25 03:05:25-04
    Reports are flooding in that Olivier Rousteing will fill Christophe Decarnin's shoes at Balmain. Balmain severed ties with its creative director after he failed to appear at the company's fall show in Paris. Rumors suggested that Decarnin was suffering from depression at the time. A source at British Elle said Balmain would likely search for new blood, [...]
  43. Dolce & Gabbana Miss Rose Satchel | Edgy Vintage Inspired Leather & Lace Bag - 2011-04-25 04:05:36-04
    Dolce & Gabbana reinvents your grandma's old satchel with this modern Miss Rose handbag. The classic satchel shape and ornate medallions take their cues from vintage fashion, but the use of modern black lace and complementary leather gives the Miss Rose an appealing edge. I can't help thinking of retro Madonna when I see black lace [...]
  44. Ragged Edge Carbon Fiber Wallets | Tough Industrial Woven Coin Purses - 2011-04-25 05:05:56-04
    Accessories don't come much tougher than these wallets from Ragged Edge. They're handmade in Virginia from carbon fiber sailcloth, an industrial grade fabric that's virtually indestructible. The nylon material has a fibrous bond woven through that's stronger than steel. That's a real blessing for anyone who's hard on their accessories. While its tough as nails exterior is [...]
