Hi mary,

Check out the latest handbag fashion news and review at BagBunch.com:
  1. Kate Spade Lemon Drop Purse | Small Framed Lella Clutch - 2011-05-16 16:19:15-04
    A pineapple is becoming something of a staple in Kate Spades' evening bags at the moment - and the odd thing is that it actually manages to work! Now, there is no denying that the glittery fluorescent green gem exterior on the Lella clutch is incredibly reminiscent of 1990's club-wear. It makes me want to dance to brutally awful tunes like Baby D "Let [...]
  2. MICHAEL Michael Kors Sloan Textured Leather Tote | Tailored Tan Leather Satchel - 2011-05-16 17:10:53-04
    The MICHAEL line by Michael Kors has become one of my favorites the past few seasons. They have managed to combine trendy wearability with affordability in a most ingenious way. This Sloan textured tote is a great everyday bag at a very reasonable price. Frankly, though, while the Sloan is one of the more versatile of [...]
  3. Stella McCartney Falabella Crocheted Shoulder Bag | Sweet Summer Take On A Slouchy Hobo - 2011-05-16 19:00:08-04
    I have to admit that Stella McCartney isn't one of my favorite accessory designers. I appreciated her commitment to environmental and animal causes, but her eco-materials often don't make for the best designs. This has been particularly true of the Falabella line. But, surprisingly, this crochet version is remarkable cute. I'm not even a big fan [...]
  4. Jil Sander Pyramid Evening Bag | Unusual Minimalist Green Leather Purse - 2011-05-16 21:33:26-04
    Jil Sander gives us an evening bag that knows how to stand out from the pack with this Pyramid purse. Jil Sander shuns traditional box clutches and frame purses for a much more unique pyramid shape. I'm not sure how practical this design is, but it'll certainly turn heads. I love the quirk factor of this purse, [...]
  5. Ecoalf Expands Into America | Spanish Eco Fashion Label Makes Handbags from Fishing Nets & Plastic Bottles - 2011-05-16 22:01:13-04
    A new eco-label is preparing to enter the American market. Ecoalf hails from Spain, and after conquering Europe has the United States firmly in its sights. Ecoalf shows its commitment to the planet by using only 100% recycled and recyclable materials to create its apparel and accessories. These innovative green materials include recycled polyester made from [...]
  6. Jimmy Choo Rhea Shopper | Lizard Embossed Belted Drawstring Handbag - 2011-05-16 23:16:54-04
    Jimmy Choo lets its materials speak for themselves with this Rhea shopper. Jimmy Choo has given this sand-colored calfskin a lift with gentle lizard skin embossing. This is one of my favorite reptilian finishes, as it's much more subtle than the more lauded crocodile and snakeskin. To that end, I wish Jimmy Choo had chosen a [...]
  7. Proud Mary's Handmade Handbags | Tribal Cotton Purses From Guatemala & South Africa - 2011-05-16 23:57:00-04
    Proud Mary is the latest company empowering women in need around the globe through the creation of eco-friendly accessories and homewares. From its base in Charlestown, South Carolina, Proud Mary employs artisans in Guatemala and South Africa. The women working at local weaving cooperatives and sewing workshops come together to create handbags, shoes, neckties, and pillows. [...]
  8. JJ Winters Chain Stud Shoulder Bag | Black Suede Studded Purse - 2011-05-17 00:35:13-04
    JJ Winters gives us an accessory with youthful energy with this Chain Stud Shoulder Bag. I'm sure that teens are going to love this purse, with its array of differently sized studs and poppy golden zipper trim. It's just the sort of bag I can imagine dangling casually from the shoulders of Hollywood starlets or the [...]
  9. Joe's Jeans The Bag Canvas Argent | Casual Military Style Carry Handbag - 2011-05-17 02:05:14-04
    I'm used to seeing stylish leather bags in bright poppy colors from Joe's Jeans. So I was surprised to see the label opting for something a bit more casual with The Bag Canvas Argent. The leather is gone, replaced with a relaxed military style canvas. The colors have also been washed out, replaced with more masculine [...]
  10. Bag Snob Bloggers Design New DKNY Purses | Tina Craig & Kelly Cook Become Guest Designers - 2011-05-17 03:05:54-04
    I haven't always been impressed by the bags DKNY's released in recent seasons, so I'm thrilled to see the label's brought in some fresh design blood. The American fashion house has collaborated with fashion bloggers Tina Craig and Kelly Cook for five exclusive fall purses. The girls know a thing or two about handbags, as they [...]
  11. Judith Leiber Floral Egg Minaudiere | Blue Enamel Clutch with Austrian Crystals - 2011-05-17 04:05:50-04
    Easter may be over, but while I'm managing to eke out my chocolate supply I'm still in the holiday spirit. And what better way to hold on to that Easter joy just a little bit longer than carrying this Judith Leiber egg-shaped minaudiere? I haven't always warmed to Judith Leiber's quirky evening purses, but I think [...]
  12. Launer London's Sales Soar After Royal Wedding | Queen Elizabeth II's Handbag Inspires Sales Spike - 2011-05-17 05:05:47-04
    Pippa Middleton wasn't the only member of the bridal party inspiring handbag envy at the recent nuptials of Prince William and Katherine Middleton. Since Queen Elizabeth II carried a Launer London purse to the event, the British label has enjoyed a massive 60% sales increase. Her Majesty carried a cream calfskin purse that she's actually owned [...]
  13. ClaireChase Leather Shoulder Tote | Spacious Traditional Tan Hold-all - 2011-05-17 08:00:51-04
    In a crowded market, simple handbags are often overlooked. They're too plain, they've "been seen before". However, you should never underestimate the long fashion life of a traditional purse, not  to mention the ease of which "ordinary" bags like this leather tote can be worn. You see, this bag will never go out of fashion. It isn't just a flash [...]
  14. Felix Rey Happy Diamond Clutch | Cute and Silly Mesh and Feather Purse - 2011-05-17 17:44:48-04
    If you are feeling a little silly, then this fun and flirty purse is made for you. This isn't a purse for being sensible. In much the same way, formal black tie events probably won't be the chosen venue. However, for easy-going nights out where you can have a little fun, then Felix Rey has thrown [...]
  15. Mulberry Taylor Oversized Leather Satchel | Fabulous Minimal Zippered Teal Handbag - 2011-05-17 19:20:37-04
    Mulberry used to be one of those lines that I thought of as sort of staid and boring. Well, not anymore. They've updated their looks considerably in the past few seasons, and have managed to retain their classic aesthetic while still offering more modern styles. This Taylor satchel is great example of how Mulberry is [...]
  16. Juicy Couture Icon Bling Tote | Black Canvas Crown Bag - 2011-05-17 19:38:12-04
    Juicy Couture remains true to its creative vision without going over the top with this clever Icon Bling tote. At first it appears like so many black canvas bags, and in many ways it is, but I think its design is actually very smart. The large crown graphic is classic Juicy, with its shimmery finish and [...]
  17. Chloe Vivian Leather Tote | Striking Mod Red Geometric Carryall - 2011-05-17 21:00:37-04
    Chloe has this amazing way of combining ladylike looks with a laid back design sensibility that is totally fashion forward. Season after season, they impress with their ability to make new looks that are still, somehow, timeless. This Vivian tote is a beautiful example of some of their most interesting work. I love the double red [...]
  18. Kara Ross Luna Clutch | Retro Blue Sequined Evening Wallet - 2011-05-18 02:05:18-04
    I hope you like sequins, because Kara Ross gives us plenty with this Luna Clutch. This purse is covered in thousands of the glittery discs, which shimmer and sparkle like a disco ball. This electric blue shade completes the retro effect for me and I'm sure other children of the 80s, or anyone who's admired the [...]
  19. Hailee Steinfeld for Miu Miu | True Grit Actress to Front Handbag Ads - 2011-05-18 03:05:21-04
    Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld has been named the new face of Miu Miu. No further details have been announced, but it's assumed that the gorgeous young actress will front advertisements for Prada's spin-off label. There's no denying Steinfeld's fashion credentials, as she's been a regular fixture in best dressed lists since her break-out role in True [...]
  20. Kate Spade Ladybug Shopper | Cream Canvas Handbag with Red Trim - 2011-05-18 04:05:51-04
    Kate Spade delivers a dash of whimsy with this Ladybug shopper. The shopper's style is classic, with clean lines and a bucket shape. But that bright red ladybug decorating the corner pocket ensures this handbag is anything but ordinary. I love the way Kate Spade has picked up the beetle red again with complementary handles and [...]
  21. Gucci's New Limited Edition Tote & Wallet | Cancun Exclusive Accessories Set - 2011-05-18 05:05:26-04
    Have you planned your summer vacation yet? If you're a Gucci fan you may want to spend some time in Cancun. The coastal location is the only place you'll find the Italian luxury label's new limited edition tote and matching wallet. The gray woven tote is dressed up with pale brown leather handles and trim. That [...]
  22. Kathrine Baumann Diet Coke Can Purse | Crystal Decorated Soda Evening Bag - 2011-05-18 06:05:11-04
    I thought I loved an ice cold can of Diet Coke as much as the next girl, but I'm starting to reevaluate my stance. It seems there are women out there who love the low calorie soda so much that they'd carry a purse celebrating the beverage. Not just any purse, mind you, but a Kathrine [...]
  23. Floto Leather Compact Clutch | Classic Unisex Leather Wallet - 2011-05-18 11:16:36-04
    There are some things that everyone should own. A wallet is one, whether you are a guy or a gal. Whatever your gender, a leather wallet offers so much to everyone that wants organisation in their lives! Whilst there are plenty of silly and gimmicky purses and wallets out there, it is probably fair to assume that the real [...]
  24. DKNY Textured Leather Wristlet Bag | Petite And Curvy Black Clutch - 2011-05-18 23:05:51-04
    I have been absolutely raving about DKNY, lately. And for good reason, too. They've really stepped up their game in terms of style, but still seem to be able to offer consumers a truly reasonable price range. This wristlet is one of the most practical and most affordable bags I've seen all season. I love the [...]
  25. Kathy Van Zeeland Dazzle Up Hobo | Blue Synthetic Rhinestones Purse - 2011-05-19 02:05:05-04
    Kathy Van Zeeland's accessories are rarely subtle, but she offers us a bit more sparkle than usual with the Dazzle Up hobo. This bucket shaped hobo is covered in literally thousands of tiny rhinestones. Some might say it's too flashy, but by using dainty, delicate gems I think Kathy Van Zeeland gets away with being a [...]
  26. Jill-e's New Canon Camera Handbag | Practical Chic Deluxe Gadget Bag - 2011-05-19 03:05:59-04
    Canon has teamed up with handbag label Jill-e to create a stylish way to carry your faithful camera, the Deluxe Gadget Bag. Handbags of this ilk are nothing new for Jill-e. The fashion house is one of the few labels that creates camera bags that value style as much as practicality. The label's fashion forward accessories [...]
  27. Kavu Sydney Satchel | Practical Cotton Floral Print Everyday Purse - 2011-05-19 04:05:02-04
    Kavu's never tried to go toe to toe with high end fashion designers. Its accessories never bow to trends, or attempt to turn heads. Instead it marches to the beat of its own drum by consistently delivering affordable and practical bags like the Sydney satchel. The Sydney's packed with more features than meets the eye. You [...]
  28. Molo Lantern Hobo Handbags | Innovative Portable Light Purses - 2011-05-19 05:05:35-04
    When is a hobo bag not just another hobo bag? When it's a Molo Hobo! This innovative label's hobos cleverly work double duty as portable lanterns. Molo was inspired by the way the streets of Milan light up once the sun goes down. It created the hobo from translucent fibers which allow the light source hidden [...]
  29. KC Malhan Athena Clutch | Black Beaded Evening Purse - 2011-05-19 06:05:05-04
    I'm not sure it's appropriate for a Greek goddess, but KC Malhan has created an elegant and affordable clutch in the Athena. The black beaded body of this simple flap clutch is quite beautiful. Those beads will catch the moonlight, glimmering with more subtlety than sequins. Black can be a bit boring, but the beads give [...]
  30. Nine West One Stop Tote | Synthetic Patent Leather Handbag - 2011-05-19 08:38:08-04
    Brown and black may be a controversial color combination, but on the One Stop tote it manages to work. I think the success of this tote lies in the fact that, largely, it is just a simple black patent purse. The brown is only a detail, a contrasting trim that defines the otherwise simple shape, and which works well with [...]
  31. Kenneth Cole New York No Slouch Hobo | Metallic Pewter Leather Carryall Bag - 2011-05-20 03:02:07-04
    Kenneth Cole attempts to confuse us with the curiously named No Slouch Hobo. Given its name you might expect the No Slouch hobo to have a very structured look. Instead its shape is just as relaxed as any hobo. Its buttery leather slouches just as it should, so why the misleading moniker? Perhaps Kenneth Cole is a [...]
  32. Carolina Herrera's Children's Design Competition | My First Andy Bag Contest - 2011-05-20 03:05:26-04
    Carolina Herrera says you're never too young to start designing. To celebrate the talents of pint-sized fashionistas she's launched the My First Andy Bag contest, an initiative that challenges kids to create their own version of her iconic handbag. Children aged between two and 10 are encouraged to dream up an Andy bag for their mother. [...]
  33. Kenneth Jay Lane Dragon Head Clutch | Medieval Black Leather Evening Purse - 2011-05-20 04:05:48-04
    Kenneth Jay Lane makes a dramatic style statement with this Dragon Head Clutch. Basic black clutches are rarely exciting, so Kenneth Jay Lane thought he'd jazz this one up with dragon heads. They really are works of art, with their polished golden finish and striking emerald eyes. But just because they're beautiful doesn't necessarily mean they [...]
  34. Maura James' New Carlos Falchi President | Macy's Exec Moves to Exotic Fashion House - 2011-05-20 05:05:19-04
    Maura James has been named the new president of Carlos Falchi IP, LLC, the company which manages all aspects of Carlos Falchi's brands. James brings to the position 30 years of experience in retail merchandising and store management. She began her career as a buyer for Bloomingdales and worked her way into various executive positions in [...]
  35. Kensie Girl Seventh Heaven Hobo | Perforated Pink Synthetic Handbag with Tassels - 2011-05-20 06:05:29-04
    Kensie Girl promises to send us into raptures with its Seventh Heaven hobo. I'm not sure that I'm in ecstasy over this purse, but it does have a certain charm to it. While the hot pink shade is sure to polarize audiences, my inner 80s child can't help getting excited about it. The perforated finish is [...]
  36. Bourne Lara Suede Clutch | Uber-Decorative Gem Studded Purse - 2011-05-20 09:41:01-04
    Be an all out glamor puss with this Bourne Lara clutch. This is one of those purses that begs for a floor length gown. It just dreams of being paired with cascades of glittering diamonds, and a killer pair of heels. In essence, this is one for the real black-tie dos, for looking gorgeous and very [...]
  37. Kooba Kiley Satchel | Large Gray Python Print Handbag - 2011-05-21 02:05:18-04
    Kooba goes wild with this python printed Kiley satchel. I usually love snake scales, but frankly I think they confuse what could have been a very elegant purse. I find myself trying to look past the mottled skin to take in the Kiley's unique structured shape, and the chic envelope pocket with its stylish silver clasp. [...]
  38. Paper No 9's Cardboard Handbags | Recycled Shipping Packages Become Designer Bags - 2011-05-21 03:05:06-04
    With spring's unpredictable showers, stepping out with a bag made of paper doesn't sound like a good idea. Or does it? New York fashion label Paper No 9 encourages us to think about paper a little differently with its range of sustainable, cruelty-free handbags. At first glance it seems like the label's brown bags are made [...]
  39. Kotur Barnett Cicada Clutch | Woven Straw Insect Accented Purse - 2011-05-22 00:14:25-04
    In the hands of the right designer, even the most unlikely accent can become desirable. This Barnett Cicada clutch by Kotur is a case in point. Who ever would have thought the most annoying of summer insects could be given such a glamorous makeover? This cicada accent is dripping in rhinestones, which elevate it from humble [...]
  40. Diffus Makes Solar Powered Bag | Stylish Sustainable Light Purse - 2011-05-22 01:11:24-04
    Diffus, the design firm behind the innovative Climate Dress, has turned its talents to accessories. This solar powered handbag is the company's latest sustainable creation. Bags powered with solar energy are nothing new, but it's unusual to see a label using the photovoltaic cells as a design element. There are actually 100 small solar panels stitched [...]
  41. L.A.M.B. Bettie Satchel | Classic Textured Red Leather Carryall - 2011-05-22 04:15:10-04
    I've been tiring of L.A.M.B. in recent years. It seems Gwen Stefani's label relies on its quirky prints, plastering them on countless lackluster purses made with shoddy materials. So I'm thrilled to see L.A.M.B taking a more traditional path with the Bettie satchel. In so many ways this is like so many satchels, but there's a [...]
  42. Labelux Buys Jimmy Choo | German Company Buys Out TowerBrook Capital - 2011-05-23 01:11:03-04
    German luxury goods company Labelux has beat the competition to secure accessories fashion house Jimmy Choo. The acquisition expands Labelux's already impressive fashion sector, which includes Bally, Derek Lam, and Solance Azagury-Partridge. It's unknown exactly how much Labelux paid for the Tamara Mellon helmed company, but early reports suggest the brand was worth between $650 million [...]
  43. La Regale Pinwheel Beaded Clutch | Affordable Modern Black Evening Purse - 2011-05-23 01:50:07-04
    We can always count on La Regale to create chic evening accessories at affordable prices. But rarely do we see La Regale offering a purse as modern as this one. This Pinwheel Beaded purse is a great option for girls who embrace contemporary fashion. We tend to associate beading with vintage fashion, but the geometric shapes [...]
  44. Tod's Limited Edition D-Styling Bauletto Bag | Yellow Satchel Celebrates South Coast Plaza Store Reopening - 2011-05-23 01:56:23-04
    Tod's has created a sunny yellow version of its D-Styling Bauletto bag to celebrate the reopening of its South Coast Plaza boutique. This is a strictly limited edition item, with just 35 made. I expected that sort of exclusivity to send the price sky high, but this one isn't too bad with a ticket value of [...]
  45. Lanvin Maisha Shoulder Bag | Vintage Crinkled Calfskin Handbag - 2011-05-23 03:25:17-04
    Lanvin celebrates vintage style with this elegant Maisha shoulder bag. This purse is every inch the lady, from its golden push-lock clasp to its gentle brown color. Fans of Lanvin's more flamboyant designs may feel this shade is a bit drab, but it's also timeless. It's a hue that you can wear in any season, and [...]
  46. Kate Spade Bixby Clutch | Stylish Retro Leather Purse - 2011-05-23 08:38:52-04
    If Kate Spade has been losing a little of her "retro" recently, the Bixby lets us know that it is definitely still there! The retro comes in many forms in this leather clutch. Firstly there is the remarkably art deco frame and cute ball clasp. The contrast between the deep dark wood and the light and pale upper layer [...]
