Hi mary,

Check out the latest handbag fashion news and review at BagBunch.com:
  1. Donald J Pliner Aali Hobo | Poppy Nubuck Leather Carryall Bag - 2011-04-25 20:19:25-04
    Donald J Pliner lets the natural beauty of nubuck shine through with this minimalist Aali hobo. Donald J Pliner seems enamored with this leather, and I can't say that I blame him. It's got that soft, smooth texture of suede but it doesn't wear as easily. Materials that are as good looking as they are practical [...]
  2. Donna Sharp Pauline Messenger Bag | Pretty Pink Patchwork Handbag - 2011-04-26 02:05:18-04
    Donna Sharp creates a fun bag for girls on the go with the Pauline. There are little surprises here for Donna Sharp devotees. The finish, with its mix of plain, paisley, plaid, and polka-dotted patches, is classic Donna Sharp. All those different patterns could overwhelm, but by sticking with browns and earthy pinks the designer's managed [...]
  3. eBay's Mother's Day Sale | Fashion Vault Discounts Handbags & Other Accessories - 2011-04-26 03:05:09-04
    I don't want to scare you, but Mother's Day is just around the corner. Whenever we have a late Easter it seems this Hallmark holiday sneaks up on us, but don't stress. You needn't resort to pot potpourri, unwanted electrical appliances, or another boring book. eBay has come to the rescue with its latest Fashion [...]
  4. Dooney & Bourke Nylon Editor's Tote Bag | Classic Blue Leather Trimmed Handbag - 2011-04-26 04:05:51-04
    Dooney & Bourke shows it's more than just a youth label with this very grown-up Nylon Editor's Tote. After seeing so many of the label's handbags covered in cutesy colored logos, this more minimalist design is like a breath of fresh air. The blue nylon body is bold and stylish, the ideal complement to the tote's [...]
  5. Fibre Arts Design Gets Green Certification | Handbag Designer Makes Environmental Commitment - 2011-04-26 05:05:45-04
    There are so many eco-friendly handbag designers around that it seems they're no longer the exceptions to the rule. But few are as environmentally conscious as Fibre Arts Design, a Californian label which has recently become a certified green company through the Green Business Bureau. Fibre Arts Design uses recycled and organic materials to create its [...]
  6. Echo Paperstraw Tote | Blue Plastic Trimmed Woven Handbag - 2011-04-26 06:05:53-04
    Echo gets us ready for summer with this Paperstraw tote. One look at this tote reminds us that this is a different animal from the designer totes you'd spot on the high street. Its woven paperstraw body is laidback and its blue plastic trim cheap and cheerful. Some fashion snobs may even call this manmade material [...]
  7. Bottega Veneta The Couple Oversized Canvas Tote | Hip And Minimal Abstract Print Carryall - 2011-04-26 12:52:47-04
    Bottega Veneta is one of those lines with unimpeachably good taste. They manage to combine cutting edge and classic in a way that is infinitely wearable. This Couple canvas tote is a great example of their inimitable design sensibility. The grey and white canvas is minimal and cool. The abstract print is well-balanced and interesting. It's [...]
  8. Diane Von Furstenburg Philomena Studded Snake Print Leather Clutch | Exotic Update Of A Boho Classic - 2011-04-26 16:00:34-04
    Like so many of her designs, Diane von Furstenberg's Philomena clutch has become a bohemian classic. The pared down shape of the bag is always combined with exotic and inventive materials that take it to a new level of style. This studded snake print version is my favorite to date. The pale metallic leather on the [...]
  9. Ed Hardy Gina Messenger | Sequined Pink Flower Purse - 2011-04-27 02:05:18-04
    I've never been Ed Hardy's biggest fan, but I must admit that I don't entirely hate the label's Gina Messenger. That doesn't sound like glowing praise, but that may be the nicest thing I've said about an Ed Hardy purse! Ed Hardy's abandoned its typical colored tattoo-style graphics for a more gentle design. It seems strange [...]
  10. Gwyneth Paltrow Stars in Coach Advertisements | Actress Models for International Campaign - 2011-04-27 03:05:11-04
    Actress, singer, and cookbook writer Gwyneth Paltrow is the new face of American handbag label Coach. But US audiences won't see her ads in their fashion magazines, as they'll appear exclusively in Coach's new European and Asian markets, including Britain, Spain, Portugal, China, and France. Gwyneth Paltrow's photos will appear in international magazines this fall to [...]
  11. Eenamaria Glided Lilly Hobo | Studded Buckle Black Polyurethane Bag - 2011-04-27 04:05:42-04
    Eenamaria abandons its usual mod aesthetic for something more modern with this Glided Lilly hobo. But I wonder whether the label has lost its individuality by running with the pack. This is the most trend-conscious I've seen Eenamaria, and I honestly think it's gone a bit too far. It covers the polyeurethane body in hardware, including [...]
  12. Tough Penalties Proposed for Counterfeit Handbag Purchases | New Bill Against Chinatown Designer Fakes Trade - 2011-04-27 05:05:04-04
    You may want to think twice before indulging in one of those cheap Louis Vuitton "replicas" or Chanel knock-offs from the Canal Street markets. Margaret Chin, the councilwoman for the Chinatown district, is proposing a bill which would punish anyone indulging in imitation designer accessories. Chin will introduce a bill tomorrow which would see offenders facing [...]
  13. Elaine Turner Terah Tote | Large Abstract Printed Canvas Handbag - 2011-04-27 06:05:22-04
    Elaine Turner gets us beach ready with this casual Terah tote. The Terah's canvas body is patterned with an earthy abstract print. We're used to seeing bold colors in such casual, summery handbags, so it's interesting to see something more subdued. I'm not sure I'm enamored with the brown color scheme, but it's certainly timeless. The geometric [...]
  14. Kara Ross Prunella Clutch | Metallic and Cork Version of this Envelope Clutch - 2011-04-27 16:26:27-04
    We have already introduced you to the past versions of the Prunella - but this new cork edition was so summer-appropriate that I couldn't resist showing it to you again! Interestingly the conversion from leather to cork instantly makes the Prunella into a day bag. The evening vibe is still kind of there in the cute-yet-subtle gold flecks [...]
  15. Elie Tahari Selena Tote | Black Leather Pleated Handbag with Chain Link Straps - 2011-04-28 02:05:53-04
    Elie Tahari has taken a minimalist approach to design with this Selena tote. A few gentle pleats are all it takes to decorate the Selena's black leather body. I like the way the inverted V-shaped pleat draws attention to the buttery soft quality of the material. The modern shape is also very appealing. While its elements [...]
  16. Hermes Birkin Auctioned for Red Cross | Bag Raises $163, 000 for Japanese Earthquake Victims - 2011-04-28 03:05:42-04
    A Hermes Birkin bag donated by its namesake Jane Birkin raised more money than any other item sold though EMI's recent celebrity auction. The designer handbag raised $163, 000 of the auction's $470, 000 total takings. EMI matched the money raised, eventually donating $940, 000 to the Red Cross. These funds will assist the charity in [...]
  17. Ellington Star Clutch | Black Glazed Leather Asymmetrical Flap Purse - 2011-04-28 04:05:14-04
    A star by name and a star by nature, this Ellington clutch twinkles a little brighter than the rest. In my line of work I see a lot of handbags. I admire so many of them, but it takes something really special to make me want to reach for my credit card. Ellington has done it [...]
  18. Jimmy Choo Bidding War Heats Up | TPG, Jones Group, Investcorp & Labelux Want Handbag & Shoe Label - 2011-04-28 05:05:44-04
    The bidding war over Jimmy Choo is heating up with several major companies making some big bids. Private equity firm TPG, who has Neiman Marcus and The J. Crew Group in its stable, has its sights set on the company. So does Jones Group Inc., who knows it bit about fashion through its overseeing of labels [...]
  19. Elliott Lucca Adele Clutch | Woven Leather Turnlock Wristlet - 2011-04-28 06:05:48-04
    Just like the soulful singer that shares its name, this Elliott Lucca Adele clutch is a real hit. The Adele is the sort of purse that you could happily carry anywhere, and it'd never look out of place. The turnlock clasp and flap over design are rooted in fashion's traditions, but the flap's woven body gives [...]
  20. Nine West Fun And Fancy Tote | Folded Rippled Leather Purse - 2011-04-28 08:44:13-04
    Embrace interesting shapes and deep textures with the Nine West Fun and Fancy purse. Although the leather in this teal bag is actually synthetic, it still gives a nice sheen and classy look. More to the point, the gentle shine helps the folded sections stand out all the more, creating shade when the curvy folds and [...]
  21. Emilie Sloan Anna Cosmetic Bag | Small Floral Make-Up Purse - 2011-04-29 02:05:09-04
    Emilie Sloan can keep your cosmetic essentials organized with this cute Anna make-up purse. This is the kind of cosmetics purse you'll stash inside a larger tote, rather than one for lugging your entire make-up collection on vacation. It's itty bitty so it really is made for carrying a few vital pieces only. That size has [...]
  22. Feel Handmade Handmade Purses | New Hand-Crafted Beaks + Feathers + Branches Bags - 2011-04-29 03:05:11-04
    The new handbags from Feel Handmade don't just feel as if they're handcrafted; they actually are! The new line is the brainchild of hudband and wife designers Joshua Karl and Erin Kaleel. Every purse in their collection is made from luxury materials hand-pieced together to ensure their quality. Green fashionistas should note that Feel Handmade does [...]
  23. Emilo Pucci Satin Evening Bag | Blue Mindanao Print Drawstring Purse - 2011-04-29 04:05:33-04
    Emilio Pucci's famous geometric prints are back on show with this satin evening bag. This swirling blue pattern is known as the Mindanao, and it really is the star of the show. I love the way this print spices up this bag's satin body, giving it a fun retro feel. Its abstract nature works well with [...]
  24. Reloop Designs' Kaleidoscopic Clutch | Woven Recycled Shopping Bag Purse - 2011-04-29 05:05:17-04
    I've heard of green companies recycling plastic shopping bags to create new materials, but after seeing this Kaleidoscopic clutch I wonder why they bother! Workers in the Cambodian town of Kampot show us you don't need such exhaustive processes to create green purses from plastic shoppers. The plastic shopping bags are rescued from heavily polluted areas [...]
  25. Etienne Aigner Stonebridge Tote | Striped Canvas Leather Trimmed Purse - 2011-04-29 19:43:29-04
    After seeing so many classic, and dare I say dull, leather handbags from Etienne Aigner I was taken aback by this Stonebridge tote. Surely such a casual creation couldn't come from such a buttoned up label! Well yes it has, and not a moment too soon. While I'm not sure I warm to this tote's clashing [...]
  26. Evans Ivory Ribbon Chain Bag | Classic Structured Flap Cross-Body Purse - 2011-04-30 20:55:29-04
    Evans takes its cues from Lanvin with this ladylike Ribbon Chain Bag. The structured flap over design and navy grosgrain ribbon accents certainly call to mind the famed French fashion house. The contrast of the navy ribbon against the white purse is striking, and the threading of this ribbon through the chain strap elegant. If you're [...]
  27. WANT Les Essentials de la Vie's Olympic Games Handbag | Limited Edition De Gaulle Bag with Interchangable Handles - 2011-04-30 21:44:52-04
    Canada's WANT Les Essentials de la Vie is getting into the spirit of the London Olympics early, with the release of its limited edition De Gaulle bag. If you were contemplating which colored handle you'd prefer, don't. The De Gaulle is actually just one bag with five colored interchangeable leather handles inspired by the Olympic Rings. [...]
  28. Felix Rey Doris Wristlet | Black Fabric Bow Purse - 2011-04-30 22:11:02-04
    Felix Rey's designs have been so whimsical lately that I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to take them seriously. The oversized hearts, bows, and smiley faces would be perfect for a junior line, but they're a bit harder to accept from a grown-up fashion house. So I'm thrilled to see Felix Rey rein things in [...]
  29. Josh Jakus' Flat Purses | Recycled Wool Um Bags - 2011-04-30 23:24:48-04
    Most of us have a mountain of handbags in our closet. It's always difficult to find our favorite bag, which is inevitably pulled from the pile misshapen and messed up. Californian-based designer Josh Jakus has solved the problem with his nifty Um carry bags. When they're not in use, these modern purses simply unzip and lie [...]
  30. Fendi Floral Roll Tote | Purple Zucca Spalmati Embroidered Handbag - 2011-05-01 23:24:25-04
    Fendi has given its iconic Roll tote a floral makeover just in time for spring. This classic styled tote is given a bit more pizzazz with its embroidered flowers, strawberries, and ladybugs. The springtime appliqué is laid over the top of Fendi's famous Zucca signature print. I've never been a fan of this logo pattern, so [...]
  31. Modnique.com Discounts Handbags for Mother's Day | Sale on Koret, Tod's, Christian Dior, & Valentino Purses - 2011-05-02 01:03:00-04
    I don't mean to scare you, but Mother's Day is just a week away. If you still haven't settled on a gift for your dear mom, Modnique.com may have the answer. The shopping website is discounting handbags from leading designers and some new names. For the next two and a half days you can save up [...]
  32. Foley + Corinna Half Pint Pac Bag | Colorblocked Mini Convertible Cross-Body Purse - 2011-05-02 01:38:15-04
    Foley + Corinna's created a purse that's small in stature but big on features with this Half Pint Pac Bag. Honestly this purse put me offside with its colorblocked finish. I've never really been a fan of this retro look, and the Half Pint Pac does little to change my stance. The neutral toned leather and [...]
  33. Upcycled Wetsuit iPad Cases | Recycled Neoprene Tablet Bags - 2011-05-02 01:53:11-04
    We all want to keep our shiny portable technology safe and dry, so what better way to do it than wrap it up in a wetsuit? A range of laptop and iPad cases made from recycled wetsuit neoprene is available from the Uncommon Goods website. Each case is made from wetsuit offcuts to minimize the carbon [...]
  34. Fontanelli Two-in-One Satchel | Purple Leather Purse with Pink Suede Clutch - 2011-05-02 02:57:48-04
    Why treat yourself with just one new handbag, when you can enjoy two? This clever convertible satchel allows you to experience a little extra indulgence. At first glance this Fontanelli Two-in-One appears like any other satchel. Its purple leather is regal, especially with its polished golden hardware. I'm not so enthusiastic about the contrasting golden stitches, [...]
