  1. L'Wren Scott Launches Lulu Handbags | Model Designer Claims Expensive Bags are "Well Priced" - 2011-06-06 21:33:36-04
    Model and fashion designer L'Wren Scott has showed she's completely out of touch with the launch of her new Lula handbag collection. The Lula, which was named after Scott's mother, is available in three different sizes, from small to weekender. It's also available in a variety of luxury materials, including red and purple calfskin, python in [...]
  2. Alexander Wang Alpha Leather And Suede Shopper | Pitch Perfect Minimal Mouse Grey Tote - 2011-06-06 22:21:07-04
    I adore Alexander Wang. He has a definite cult following, and I am definitely part of it. His fashion-forward, streamlined designs are classic and edgy at the same time, and this Alpha shopper is a great example of how he's able to balance those two poles. Grey is the new black. Just kidding, but it has [...]
  3. Miu Miu Textured Leather Shoulder Bag | Rustic Rich Brown Leather Satchel - 2011-06-07 01:00:50-04
    Miu Miu has come up with a lot of ridiculous bags in the past few seasons. But sprinkled throughout their motley mess of accessories are gems like this one. This textured leather shoulder bag has an old school charm that's hard to resist. The weathered look of the leather on this bag is, I think, what [...]
  4. Nicole Miller Stella Tote | Studded Beige Leather Handbag - 2011-06-07 01:05:32-04
    Nicole Miller uses studs to add elegance rather than edge with the Stella tote. Nude leather might be right on trend, but I've always found these beige shades a bit boring. However with the addition of a smattering of nickel studs along the center panel, I'm interested. Their round shape, brassy color, and delicate size makes [...]
  5. Christian Louboutin Mini Sweet Charity Calf Hair Bag | A Quirky Petite Update On A Classic - 2011-06-07 01:59:21-04
    The Sweet Charity line is one of Louboutin's most popular. It's no wonder why, either, because all the bags in it are classic and beautiful. I'm glad to see, though, that Louboutin is taking a few more risks in terms of materials. The result is a beautifully irreverent design. Calf hair is always my favorite choice [...]
  6. Nina Ricci Patchwork Bag | Contemporary Lilac Fabric Shoulder Purse - 2011-06-07 02:05:45-04
    Nina Ricci delivers a bold new take on patchwork with this Patchwork Bag. From a distance this seems like a very traditional Chanel-esque purse, with its front flap and gleaming golden fold-down clasp. But get closer and you'll see this Patchwork purse isn't quite as buttoned up as it appears. Soft lilac fabric is artfully arranged into [...]
  7. Liebeskin Berlin Launches Affordable Handbag Collection | Suede & Canvas Purses from Germany - 2011-06-07 03:05:11-04
    Take note L'Wren Scott. German fashion label Liebeskin Berlin has launched a collection of casual leather bags, and the most expensive of the lot is just $370. Now this is a label that I would call "well priced." The purses in the range start from $250, and the leather is every bit as luxurious as the [...]
  8. Nine West Rockin Out Satchel | Medium Silver Chain Detailed Handbag - 2011-06-07 04:05:54-04
    Nine West serves up some serious attitude with the Rockin Out satchel. I've seen so many fashion designers attempting to create edgy, rock and roll looks, but never quite like this. Narrow strips of synthetic are threaded through silver chains to create a striking textured finish. Those accents are complemented by a smattering of studs and [...]
  9. Florence Welch Models for Gucci | Brit Singer Inspires New Fashion Collection - 2011-06-07 05:05:18-04
    British singer Florence Welch is the new face of Gucci. The soulful singer may seem like a left-of-field choice, but it seems the label's creative director Frida Giannini has had her eye on Ms Welch for some time. Giannini says she had the singer in mind while designing Gucci's latest fall/winter line. "As I was imagining this [...]
  10. O'Neill Karma Tote | Summery Natural Woven Paper Straw Handbag - 2011-06-07 06:05:04-04
    Enjoy the good karma that comes with carrying a green bag like this Karma Tote from O'Neill this summer. The Karma is just the kind of purse that makes me thrilled the warmer weather is here. You could never get away with its casual woven straw body during winter, but now that it's June we can [...]
  11. Michael Kors Sutton Clutch | Buckled Python Leather Purse - 2011-06-07 17:02:19-04
    With a little black clutch the magic is in the detail. In the case of the Sutton clutch, Michael Kors has put the effort into those very details. The first touch is in the fabric choice, a  genuine python leather that, as always with exotic skins, oozes class and sophistication. That said, at the same time it [...]
  12. Alexander Wang Kristen Multi-Strap Suede Shoulder Bag | Ultra-Hip Strappy Black Satchel - 2011-06-07 23:28:45-04
    Alexander Wang is one of the hottest designers of the new millennium. That sounds like a throwaway statement, but I really mean it. This Kristen bag is a great example of what makes his designs so appealing for modern women. A lot of bags combine suede and leather, but not many do so to such an [...]
  13. Miu Miu Patent Leather Shoulder Bag | Ho-Hum Overpriced Nude Patent Bag - 2011-06-08 01:30:20-04
    Miu Miu is one of those lines that I approach dubiously, and bags like this are the reason why. While some of its design elements might have seemed interesting a few years ago, today it looks dated and somewhat ridiculous. The nude patent leather is almost a good choice. Nude is fading out of fashion's spectrum [...]
  14. Oroton Heritage O Tote | Mesh Panel White Leather Handbag - 2011-06-08 02:05:43-04
    As Australian handbag labels go, none is bigger than Oroton. The fashion house has been churning out high quality purses since its inception in 1936. But even the greats make a mistake, and I think Oroton has with this Heritage O Tote. The O Tote has been an Oroton staple for many years, taking over from [...]
  15. Burberry's New Fall/Winter 2011 Advertising | Ad Features New Models & Classic Bags - 2011-06-08 03:05:02-04
    As the Northern Hemisphere basks in summer sunshine, the fashion industry is looking ahead to cooler weather. Burberry is the latest label to release images of its fall/winter 2011 campaign, and this shot almost makes me want to rug up. Acclaimed fashion photographer Mario Testino shot the model newcomers for the Burberry ad. These guys and [...]
  16. Oryany Drew Raffia Tote | Summery Woven Purse with Brown Leather Trim - 2011-06-08 04:05:25-04
    Oryany serves up a classic summer tote with the Drew. Its woven finish in natural toned raffia is a warm weather staple, but the Drew looks much more elegant than many summery purses do. Oryany uses conservative brown leather to trim the tote, rather than a bright color, and there are no loud prints or flirty [...]
  17. Cambodian Threads Does Wallets, Cosmetics Bags | New Accessories for Fair Trade Fashion Label - 2011-06-08 05:05:29-04
    Cambodian Threads has been creating stylish silk scarves since 2009. Now two years on the fair trade fashion house is expanding its range and adding ties, make-up bags, and wallets to its collection. As with all Cambodian Threads products, the new fashion items are handmade by the Heng family, a group of Cambodian artisans working in [...]
  18. Paco Mena Albertinellia Clutch | Blue Lace Box Evening Purse - 2011-06-08 06:05:52-04
    Intricate blue lace overlay makes this simple box clutch from Paco Mena something really special. Frankly I'm getting a bit tired of seeing evening bags covered in ruffles and studded with bling. So it's thrilling to see a designer like Paco Mena stepping outside of the box. Rather than ostentatious decorations, Paco Mena relies on midnight [...]
  19. Pacsafe Metrosafe 100 Shoulder Bag | Small Black Anti-Theft Security City Purse - 2011-06-09 02:05:47-04
    We all know Pacsafe makes anti-theft bags for travelers, but the mean streets of your own neighborhood can be just as dangerous as any tourist town. So Pacsafe's made the Metrosafe 100, a small and secure purse for keeping your precious cargo safe in the urban jungle. It looks like a typical fabric bag but the [...]
  20. Amazing Louis Vuitton Artwork Animals | Designer Handbags Become Art - 2011-06-09 03:05:40-04
    Most often when artists use Louis Vuitton handbags in their works they're making a statement against consumerism. Think Nadia Plesner and her Darfur awareness piece Darfunica or R. Lloyd Ming and his provocative sculpture The Crucifix. Now Billie Achilleos has turned the French fashion house's purses into art, and it's with Louis Vuitton's blessing. The Louis [...]
  21. Paul Smith Josephine Shopper | Casual Soft Blue Denim Handbag - 2011-06-09 04:05:02-04
    Paul Smith tones down his usual design vision with this Josephine shopper. Gone is the bright rainbow of colors Paul Smith usually paints with, replaced instead with a soft blue cotton denim. This fabric is perfect for creating Paul Smith's casual everyday shopper. It looks so relaxed, with its slouchy shape and gray grosgrain ribbon drawstring. [...]
  22. Chinese Laundry's New Licensee | M. London Gains Rights to Affordable Handbag Brand - 2011-06-09 05:05:43-04
    There's been a changing of the guard at Chinese Laundry, with M. London taking over the licensing from Viewmark. M. London's certainly got the experience and vision needed to take the affordable handbag label to the next level. It's been in the fashion business for the last 20 years, and it believes Chinese Laundry deserves a [...]
  23. 3.1 Phillip Lim Berry Wristlet | Black Snake-Embossed Lambskin Wrist Purse - 2011-06-09 06:05:39-04
    Phillip Lim reminds us of how impressive exotic embossing can look with his Berry wristlet. We've all seem some bad embossing in recent seasons. All too often it seems designers are just going through the motions, adding a scaly texture without authenticity. It's almost as if they've given up, assuming that there's no way they could [...]
  24. Coach Leather Carly Hobo | Simple Black and White Shoulderbag - 2011-06-09 12:49:03-04
    When not getting obsessed with patchwork and branding, Coach can actually produce some understated handbags! The Carly is one such example, where the designers have finally produced something other than the original patchwork version. The thing is, simple works, and it is nice that they have decided to let classic black and white do the talking. And talk it does. The solid white [...]
  25. Alexander Wang Adele Leather Fold-Over Trunk Clutch | Quirky But Sophisticated Soft Grey Clutch - 2011-06-09 21:15:48-04
    Alexander Wang's signature take on minimal is turning heads in every town across the globe. He doesn't put out a ton of bags each season, but the ones he does put out become coveted classics almost immediately. This Adele clutch is one of my favorites to date. Wang's Adele line of clutches have a masterfully tailored [...]
  26. Pilar Abril Stacey Tote | Edgy Faux Fur & Synthetic Handbag - 2011-06-10 02:05:09-04
    Pilar Abril serves up plenty of attitude with this Stacey Tote. There's an awful lot going on here. Honestly I think it's too much. Its faux fur body is already eye-catching, and the chunky synthetic trim and handles add another dimension. Then Pilar Abril adds a thick decorative chain, a braided accent, and smattering of studs [...]
  27. Worn Again Turns Train Uniforms Into Handbags | Eurostar Works with Green Company on Recycling Program - 2011-06-10 03:05:04-04
    Worn Again has turned the old uniforms of Eurostar train managers into carry bags for the transport company's senior staffers. The innovative recycling program has saved the discarded uniforms from landfill, and provided accessories for 250 employees. Each unisex bag is made from pieces of old Eurostar jackets, raincoats, and train cushions. Worn Again's artist and [...]
  28. Pink Studio Wool Lady Satchel | Gray Felted Wintery Purse - 2011-06-10 04:05:54-04
    While the mercury continues to soar, the fashion world is already looking ahead to cooler weather. If you want to get a jump on your peers a cute purse like this Wool Lady Satchel from Pink Studio could set you up for fall. This really is a classic cold weather accessory, with its upper crust feminine [...]
  29. Badgley Mischka Releases Mark & James Bags | Affordable Modern Purses from Luxury Designers - 2011-06-10 05:05:01-04
    Badgley Mischka designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka have just added handbags to their affordable Mark & James collection. The inexpensive purses have been a long time coming. Mark & James launched its apparel range in 2009, and it didn't take long before footwear joined the clothes. Now that the handbags have arrived I'm hoping they are [...]
  30. Prada PVC Crystal Detail Doctors Bag | Overpriced Plastic Gray Purse - 2011-06-10 06:05:15-04
    It seems Prada's designers were having an identity crisis when they created this doctor bag, as it doesn't seem like it knows exactly what it wants to be. Clear PVC is one of those el cheapo materials that should only be reserved for very specific accessories. It works for beach bags and the trim of a [...]
  31. Prezzo Metal Mesh Fanny Pack | Unusual Striped Waist Bag - 2011-06-11 02:05:48-04
    Prezzo has given the humble fanny pack a luxurious makeover with this unusual metal mesh waist bag. This Prezzo purse is one for the sophisticated traveler, or the girl who's trying to be. Because honestly, I'm not sure a fanny pack can ever be dressed up, even in metal mesh! But it is a fun twist [...]
  32. Vivienne Westwood Designs New Ethical Fashion Africa Project Bag | Sustainable Purses from Recycled African Materials - 2011-06-11 03:05:02-04
    The three shopper bags Vivienne Westwood released through her Ethical Fashion Africa Project in January sold out quickly, so I'm thrilled to see she's expanding the line. The new purses are also created in conjunction with the International Trade Center, made in Nairobi, and crafted entirely from recycled materials. This time around there really is something [...]
  33. Proenza Schouler Beach Bag | Black Neoprene Summer Handbag with Mesh Pockets - 2011-06-11 04:05:54-04
    When you think Proenza Schouler you probably think of the PS1. The label varies the fabrics and colors, but essentially its reputation has been built on the satchel. So it's refreshing to see the brand stepping out of its box with this beach bag. This is a real departure for Proenza Schouler. The luxury materials it [...]
  34. iBaggs Launches The Traveler iPad Bags | New Convertible Neoprene Tech Cases - 2011-06-11 19:25:02-04
    iBaggs has launched The Traveler and Traveler Plus, a pair of travel bags designed for transporting everyone's favorite tablets, the original iPad and the new iPad 2. Unlike so many tech bags, the Traveler and Traveler Plus don't only care about getting from Point A to Point B. The hand straps and open access window allow [...]
  35. Puma Dazzle Shopper Tote | Glossy Purple Nylon Handbag - 2011-06-12 02:05:39-04
    Puma hopes we'll be starry eyed over its Dazzle shopper tote, but this proves to be one bag that doesn't live up to its name. When I hear a bag is called the Dazzle I expect it will, well, dazzle me. But really this is a fairly lackluster effort from the sports brand. Its purple nylon [...]
  36. Blauvent by Carmesine Paraglider Wing Handbags | Green Recycled Handbags from Spain - 2011-06-12 03:05:18-04
    Just when I thought I'd seen sustainable handbags made from every material imaginable, Blauvent by Carmesine's come along to surprise me. The Spanish label makes tote bags, wallets, belts, and other fashion accessories from the retired wings of paragliders. The green brand claims its products are made "for paraglider pilots, by paraglider pilots," but I don't [...]
  37. Radley Wigmore Shoulder Bag | Large Pink Plait Piping Leather Purse - 2011-06-12 04:05:52-04
    Radley serves up practicality in a pretty pink package with this Wigmore shoulder bag. I know, I know, this bag is very pink. This particular hue is so sugary that you might get a toothache if you stare at it for too long. It's definitely for the girliest of girly girls. But personally I think it's [...]
  38. Tory Burch Wins Millions in Counterfeit Lawsuit | American Designer Sues Copycat Shopping Sites - 2011-06-12 05:05:32-04
    Tory Burch has won a landmark settlement against hundreds of website selling counterfeit version of her famous handbags and ballet flats. The New Yorker was awarded $164 million in damages, the largest sum in a case against counterfeit e-tailers. Recent studies have disagreed, but Burch claims counterfeiting costs American fashion houses more than $20 billion dollars [...]
  39. DKNY Textured Leather Bag | Crisp Off-White Structured Shoulder Bag - 2011-06-12 20:00:33-04
    DKNY has been sort of off and on all season. They've run the gamut from trendy and quirky to classic and low key. Unfortunately, DKNY's version of low key is, well, a little boring. This textured leather bag is making me yawn. The textured off-white leather is crisp and summer ready. It is, however, a little [...]
  40. MICHAEL Michael Kors Princeton Washed Leather Shoulder Bag | Boho But Utilitarian Hobo - 2011-06-12 23:00:22-04
    I've really been talking up the MICHAEL line, lately. They've been putting out some very cool, and very affordable, accessories this season, and I can't help but get excited. This Princeton washed leather shoulder bag, unfortunately, is not the best the line has to offer. The washed brown leather is pretty cool, but honestly, I think [...]
  41. Rafe Eugenia Clutch | Black Snakeskin Embossed Layered Purse - 2011-06-13 02:05:59-04
    With the Eugenia, Rafe's created a clutch that doesn't need to wait until after five to make an appearance. This is one purse that reminds us that an accessory doesn't need studs and sequins for texture. Instead Rafe uses a range of snake embossed finishes artfully pleated and woven across the Eugenia's surface. The dramatic diagonal [...]
  42. Serpui Marie Checkerboard Purse | Complex Luxury Shell Clutch - 2011-06-13 08:26:26-04
    Mother of Pearl shell is a classic luxury material, and Serpui Marie acknowledge this fact in a play on the classic Mother of Pearl checkerboard. Of course, this particular checkerboard is less likely to be seen huddled over by old men than played with and fawned over by girls! In fact, it comes in the form of a [...]
