Hi mary,

Check out the latest handbag fashion news and review at BagBunch.com:
  1. Pierotucci's New Fortuna Bag | Convertible Recycled Leather Handbag Brings Good Luck - 2011-06-20 20:07:54-04
    Italian fashion house Pierotucci has launched a luxury eco-accessory for the ladies and the lads with its Unisex Fortuna Bag. It might seem unusual to call a leather bag green, but Pierotucci created it from off-cuts collected from local Florentine leather companies. With several different leather styles and colors at its disposal, Pieotucci decided to create [...]
  2. Christian Louboutin Loubi Croissant Suede Clutch | Amazing Purple Suede Purse - 2011-06-20 20:46:29-04
    Holy Christian Louboutin! This is one of the most strikingly beautiful bags I've seen all year, and it's no surprise that it's by Louboutin, one of the most reliably sophisticated lines out there. The purple suede on the Loubi Croissant is a surprising and delightful choice. The color is eye-popping, almost ultra-violet, and it's lovely up [...]
  3. Marc Jacobs Wellington Leather Shoulder Bag | Sassy But Sophisticated Red Satchel - 2011-06-20 21:31:21-04
    I can spot a Marc Jacobs bag from twenty feet away. Not because they're flashy or have giant logos, but because his coyly feminine style is so recognizable. This Wellington bag is a great example of his uniquely American aesthetic. The deep red of the leather on the Wellington is rich and lustrous. The gold hardware [...]
  4. Diane Von Furstenberg Harper Day Leather Shoulder Bag | Chic Chocolatey Brown Chain Strap Bag - 2011-06-20 23:30:23-04
    Diane Von Furstenberg's classic aesthetic is iconic and timeless. Usually, her style has a bohemian bent that makes it memorable. This Harper Day bag is memorable, but it's a lot different from the hippie designs she's known for. For one thing, the rich color and smoothly textured leather on the Harper Day is a lot more [...]
  5. Stone Mountain Working Girl Bucket Bag | Large Practical Pink Leather Handbag - 2011-06-20 23:48:24-04
    Stone Mountain's made a handbag for the nine to fivers with the Working Girl. Its pretty pink color might not seem very office appropriate, but I think the sedate styling and gentle hue of this purse would help most working girls get away with it. The color gives this fairly generic looking bucket bag some real [...]
  6. El Naturalista Does Handbags | Green Footwear Line Makes Eco-Friendly Recycled Leather Purses - 2011-06-21 00:03:07-04
    El Naturalista gets the balance between style and sustainability right with its eco-friendly handbag collection. The Spanish label began as a green footwear brand, but has recently added some chic purses to the mix. There are only seven different designs at this point, but by starting small El Naturalista has ensured each one's a standout. [...]
  7. Christian Louboutin Pigalle Spiked Leather Clutch | Edgy Sculpted Evening Bag - 2011-06-21 01:31:04-04
    Christian Louboutin is really rocking my world, lately. I can't get enough of his sleek, sophisticated styles. This Pigalle bag is such an amazing combination of uptown and rock-n-roll that it's got me all worked up. The black leather on the Pigalle is ultra-smooth and has a slight sheen, but it's matte enough to contrast with [...]
  8. Straw Studios Heidi Tote | Woven Cornhusk Scarf Decorated Summer Bag - 2011-06-21 01:37:09-04
    Straw Studios abandons its typical straw for stronger cornhusk to create this Heidi tote. Natural fibers are notoriously brittle, but cornhusk is marginally tougher than straw or raffia. It also doesn't mind being wet, so the Heidi is a great option for the beach or pool. And finally, it's incredibly sustainable. Honestly it makes me wonder [...]
  9. Bally Mairie Medium Tote | Contrasting Colorful Patent Leather Purse - 2011-06-21 08:32:21-04
    I don't know if you missed it, but we've written about the Mairie before. In fact, it was less writing and more just a condensed form of passionate lust, albeit in written format! Now the luxury leather brand have reinvented the bag, and it is just as gorgeous as ever. In fact, the royal blue and [...]
  10. Marc by Marc Jacobs Snappy Leather Bowling Bag | Plum Perfect Retro Bowler - 2011-06-21 23:07:11-04
    The Marc by Marc Jacobs line defines hip feminine fashion. It's my favorite diffusion line, and one of the few that is making current trends instead of just piggybacking off of higher priced designs. This Snappy bowler is a super cool and very affordable accessory. The plum color of the leather is surprising. It adds a [...]
  11. Diane Von Furstenberg Harper Bon Bon Ostrich Effect Shoulder Bag | Eclectic Saffron Leather Bag - 2011-06-22 00:00:00-04
    Diane Von Furstenberg has been sticking to really classic looks, lately, but this Harper Bon Bon bag shows definite traces of her usual bohemianism. The Bon Bon may be a little bit boho, but it's slick details make it look very mod and very cool. The ostrich embossed saffron colored leather is so spectacular that I [...]
  12. Stuart Weitzman Cane Buddha Shoulder Bag | Gold Lattice Coated Nylon Handbag - 2011-06-22 00:27:11-04
    I've always felt that Stuart Weitzman's designs were a bit hit and miss. Sadly I think he's come down on the latter side with this Cane Buddha shoulder bag. There's a certain appeal to the relaxed, unstructured shape of this large shoulder bag. Its raised lattice-like pattern creates an interesting texture and just a dash of [...]
  13. New Sports Bags from Live Well 360 | Athletics Line Launches Accel & Luxx - 2011-06-22 00:57:34-04
    Sporty accessory line Live Well 360 has added two new handbags to its collection. The Accel and Luxx join the label's existing medium handbag, the Core. Each is available in graphite gray and eggplant purple shades. The Accel is the smallest in the collection, a great option for anyone who's stopping by the gym after work [...]
  14. Sun N' Sand Multicolored Straw Tote | Playful Woven Beach Bag - 2011-06-22 01:34:42-04
    Sun N' Sand offers a playful alternative to all those natural toned woven summer bags with this multicolored straw tote. Rather than the classic beige toned straw, Sun N' Sand has colored its natural fiber with every hue of the rainbow. Strands of the vividly dyed material radiate like the sun's rays from the tote's handles, [...]
  15. Versace Collaborates with H&M | Italian Fashion House Announces Diffusion Line - 2011-06-22 01:45:18-04
    H&M appears to be going from strength to strength. After last year's high profile collaboration with Lanvin, the Swedish retailer has announced its next diffusion line will be a partnership with Versace. Fashion houses don't come much bigger than the Donatella Versace helmed Italian juggernaut, and the thought of nabbing these designs at bargain basement prices [...]
  16. Susan Farber Hastings Shoulder Bag | Black Leather Zipper Edge Ruffled Drawstring Handbag - 2011-06-22 01:59:19-04
    Susan Farber upsizes her Laurel clutch with this Hastings shoulder bag. The Hastings has everything we loved about the Laurel. The soft ruffled leather, with its zippered edge, is an intriguing mix of sugar and spice. The gently braided strap is a great complement to those elements we first fell for. And all that extra space [...]
  17. ZH Collection Pleated Clutch | Fun Cartoon Covered Monochrome Purse - 2011-06-22 16:48:44-04
    Cheep and cheerful handbags are just the sort of thing to buy as the end of the month approaches, and your purse strings tighten by the day! This ZH Collection is just the ticket. You see, the $54 price tag is more wallet friendly than most, yet it also offers a chirpy and cheery design that is [...]
  18. Tano Electrorocker Shoulder Bag | Practical Brown Crunch Leather Handbag - 2011-06-22 20:31:33-04
    Tano delivers a different type of rock and roll bag with this Electrorocker. There are no studs or spikes, no exposed zips. In fact, there are none of the classic signs of a rock and roll handbag at all. In this brown crunch leather it seems more like a sensitive 70s folk songwriter than a heavy [...]
  19. Banana Republic Launches "Mad Men" Line | American Retailers Vintage Inspired Capsule Collection - 2011-06-22 21:08:35-04
    Banana Republic has worked with Mad Men's costume designer Janie Bryant to create a new vintage-inspired fashion line. The retro diffusion collection will feature apparel for men and women, footwear, handbags and wallets, and even antiquated accessories like pocket squares and money clips. Few people understand vintage fashion like Bryant, and Banana Republic's creative director Simon [...]
  20. Temperley London Sovereign Shoulder Bag | Tan Studded Leather Purse - 2011-06-22 22:05:09-04
    Temperley London seems to have mellowed a little with this Sovereign Shoulder Bag. Gone is the black leather and bold hardware we've come to associate with the brand, replaced with a gentle tan skin and delicate studs. The Sovereign reminds us that studs don't always mean rebellion. These smaller accents draw attention to the elegant stitching [...]
  21. Jil Sander Suede Packable Tote | Soft Minimal Black Suede Carryall - 2011-06-22 22:16:38-04
    I haven't seen much of Jil Sander, lately. She's one of those designers that sprinkles the market with her designs, rather than blanketing it. The accessories she does release, however, are sleekly designed and elegant. This packable suede tote is a great example. Sander manages something delicate in this design. The texture of the suede is [...]
  22. Tamara Fogle's Upcycled Handbags | Brit Makes Bags from Vintage Flour Sacks & Quilts - 2011-06-22 23:02:02-04
    Since 2007, British designer Tamara Fogle has taken recycling to the next level with her diverse range of eco-friendly handbags. Fogle helps to differentiate herself from all those other eco-friendly labels by using unusual materials. There are collections made from antique German flour sacks, vintage Indian quilts, and vintage military sacks, to name a few. These [...]
  23. Miu Miu Aviator Aviator Two-Tone Leather Bag | Cool Grey And Navy Structured Hobo - 2011-06-22 23:30:44-04
    Okay, I'm just going to come right out and say it. Miu Miu is a line of questionable taste. It's not always disappointing, but it's disappointing often enough to be noticable. Fortunately, Miu Miu has shown remarkable restraint with this Aviator design and the results are beautiful. Unlike so many of Miu Miu's designs, the Aviator [...]
  24. Tepper Jackson Mini Weekender Bag | Bright Psychedelic Print Carry-All Handbag - 2011-06-22 23:58:24-04
    Tepper Jackson's trademark flower power prints are on show again with this Mini Weekender Bag, a great accessory for those quick getaways. I think most of us would struggle to carry bags with those vibrant patterns every day, but when we're traveling we can get away with a little more personality. The colorful all-over print reminds [...]
  25. The Jesse B. Collection Morgan Carpet Bag | Wool Houndstooth Check Pleated Shoulder Purse - 2011-06-23 02:05:33-04
    The Jesse B. Collection takes a break from its traditional frame clutches to create this casual Morgan carpet bag. Its dimensions may be a bit of a departure for The Jesse B. Collection but all the hallmarks of the brand are there. Its wool material would be familiar for fans. Its houndstooth print is also classic, [...]
  26. Saky Sacks Reusable Shoppers | Tough Recyclable Tyvek Totes - 2011-06-23 03:05:09-04
    Saky Sacks creates reusable shoppers that are much stronger and more stylish than the average. Saky Sacks are made from Tyvek, a tough as nails material that is also lightweight and machine washable. Unlike so many shoppers on the market, you needn't worry about these bags tearing under the weight of your groceries. They're made to [...]
  27. The SAK Flora Satchel | Woven Pink Polypropylene Flower Accented Handbag - 2011-06-23 04:05:16-04
    The SAK embraces its feminine side with this Floral satchel. It looks like woven wool from a distance, but the Flora is actually made from a high-tech fiber called polypropylene. It's a strong material often used to create carpets and ropes. It doesn't look quite so tough here though in bright raspberry pink! While the color might [...]
  28. Prada's New Faux Fur Bags | Designer Makes Cruelty Free Purses, Sort Of - 2011-06-23 05:05:50-04
    Prada has answered the prayers of animal lovers with the release of a range of faux fur handbags for fall. There are three bags in all: the pint sized Eco Pellicia Faux Fur Wristlet and the large Prada Mohair Faux Fur Garden Tote and Prada Mongolia Faux Fur Garden Tote. Each costs a fraction of the [...]
  29. Tianni Elle Tote | Zipper Decorated Blue Synthetic Handbag - 2011-06-23 06:05:11-04
    Tianni serves up zips, zips, and more zips with the Elle Tote. Vertical zippers decorate the front of this rectangular synthetic handbag. At first I thought they might have hidden a practical secret; some hidden pockets or expandable sections perhaps. But no, they're merely an aesthetic detail designed to liven up the blue synthetic body. They [...]
  30. Fossil Key-Per Convertible Tote | Funky Patterned Canvas Purse - 2011-06-23 12:29:20-04
    Fossil channel a boho hippy vibe with their pun-tastic Key-Per tote. If you are into pattern clashing and ethnic inspiration, then this canvas and leather tote will be just the thing. It combines an eye catching fabric lining with a coated canvas body in a completely different print, and added on top is a different colored leather base. [...]
  31. Marc by Marc Jacobs Tate Peony Print Tote | Cheerful Fuchsia Abstracted Floral Carryall - 2011-06-23 21:44:57-04
    The Marc by Marc Jacobs line has really been winning this season. The trend continues with this hot pink Tate peony tote, which is cute and casual and really fun for summer. The practical nylon material has an abstracted peony print that is really hot. It's so abstract, actually, that it almost looks like animal print, [...]
  32. Tignanello Power Pebble Shopper Tote | Round Pebbled Leather Carryall Bag - 2011-06-24 02:05:06-04
    Tignanello reminds us of the power of pebbled leather with this Power Pebble Shopper Tote. I really like the shape of this tote, which is more rounded and voluminous than the traditional boxy design. This silhouette is perfect for emphasizing the quality of that pebbled leather. I'm not so sure about the contrast stitching, which I [...]
  33. Henri Bendel Open See Goes Online | New York Store Searches for New Designers - 2011-06-24 03:05:41-04
    Henri Bendel is inviting aspiring accessories designers to get creative  online for its latest Open See designer casting call. The Open See concept has been around for more than 40 years.

  34. Cynthia Rowley's Birchbox Boxes | Handbag Designer's Collaboration with Beauty Subsription Service - 2011-06-24 05:05:43-04
    Handbag designer Cynthia Rowley has teamed up with Birchbox, a subscription based service that offers its customers samples of high-end beauty products. Anyone who signs up to the service before June 30 will receive the beautiful limited edition box pictured. Its trippy design reminds me a bit of an oil slick with its rainbow of colors. [...]
  35. Timmy Woods Nails Cross-Body Bag | Sassy Red Wooden Nail Polish Purse - 2011-06-24 05:05:51-04
    Timmy Woods embraces her silly side with this Nails Cross-Body Bag. Novelty purses like this are common place amongst the Timmy Woods collection, yet strangely I'm always taken aback by the flamboyance of the designs. Here the red color makes a real statement, as do the unusual starbursts on the nail polish lid. It looks like child [...]
  36. Tod's Toujours Shopping Tote | Classic Medium Blue Leather Handbag - 2011-06-24 06:05:45-04
    Tod's plays it safe with this very traditional Toujours Shopping Tote. When I imagine a tote in my mind, it looks exactly like the Toujours. Its traditional shape, its minimalist design, and its clean lines are all trademarks of the style. The rich blue color is a bit unexpected I suppose. It's almost black, so it's [...]
  37. Tommy Hilfiger Dip Dye Tote | Large Coated Canvas Handbag - 2011-06-26 00:32:06-04
    A bright pop of saturated color makes Tommy Hilfiger's Dip Dye tote something special. It's easy to see where this tote got its name. It almost looks like Tommy Hilfiger has taken the handles of each tote and dipped it into a vat of brightly colored paint. The contrast of the subdued natural canvas and the [...]
  38. Bywa Recycled Handbags | Bag Designer Turns Trash to Treasure - 2011-06-26 01:09:38-04
    They say that one man's trash is another man's treasure, and few designers believe this adage more strongly than Gwen Cornish. Her label Bywa takes the items others have discarded and turns them into lust-worthy handbags. The company came about when several years ago, Cornish heard that 99% of things purchased in modern times would end [...]
  39. Tory Burch Rattan Flap Clutch | Woven Purse with Leather Logo Closure - 2011-06-26 01:46:25-04
    Tory Burch gets rustic with this Rattan Flap Clutch. Rattan is less luxurious than the materials Burch usually plays with, but it's perfect for this warm weather we've all been enjoying. The geometric wicker weave makes this rattan feel a bit more sophisticated than it normally does, but there's no escaping that this is a casual [...]
  40. Hailee Steinfeld for Miu Miu | First Look at "True Grit" Star's Fashion Advertisements - 2011-06-26 01:59:51-04
    When I heard that the young star of True Grit, Hailee Steinfeld, would front Miu Miu's next advertising campaign I was cautiously excited. I've always admired the 14-year-old down-to-earth nature and fashion flair, but I wondered whether she might be a bit young to front a very grown up apparel and accessories line. However as [...]
  41. Christian Louboutin Pola Leopard Print Calf Hair Shoulder Bag | Dramatic Animal Print Satchel - 2011-06-26 18:04:49-04
    Christian Louboutin has a magical way of bringing a really sophisticated aesthetic to even the most dramatic styles. Point in case is this beautiful Pola shoulder bag. The combination of textures, colors and materials on the Pola is pure genius. Leopard print calf hair is always one of my favorite materials, and it looks stunning here [...]

    Travelon offers a practical way to carry your most important items with this Slim-Line Essentials Bag from the Dolphin Collection.

The zip down organizer [...]

    Holstee has teamed up with Conserve India for a colorful new take on its popular wallet. While the original wallets were made from newspaper, the new Delhi Rang purses are crafted from colored plastic shopping bags. Conserve India has a long history of reducing India's waste and helping the country's poor by turning plastic bags into [...]
  44. Marc by Marc Jacobs Metallic Shopper | Ultra Shiny Hipster Tote - 2011-06-26 21:00:49-04
    Marc by Marc Jacobs is really pumping out the high octane, inexpensive bags this season. This metallic shopper definitely gives you a lot of bang for the buck. I am completely mesmerized by the ultra gloss on this tote. Seriously, have you ever seen anything this shiny? I'm pretty sure I haven't, and I'm not sure [...]
  45. Treesje Nirvana Cross-Body Tote | Convertible Pleated Brown Leather Handbag - 2011-06-26 21:39:23-04
    Treesje's promising us bliss with this Nirvana cross-body tote. I'm not sure whether it's going to take us to a higher plane of existence, but I am charmed by the Nirvana's softly pleated body and rich coffee colored leather. The pleating keeps the silhouette relaxed, while the structured frame design ensures it never gets sloppy. The Nirvana [...]
  46. Cassidy Randall Launches | Friends Design New Handbag Collection - 2011-06-26 22:23:36-04

  47. Tusk Chelsea Shopper | Retro Black Leather Topstitched Handbag - 2011-06-27 02:05:17-04
    Tusk injects a bit of retro flair into a wardrobe staple with this Chelsea shopper. In many ways this is a fairly traditional shopper, with its clean trapezoidal shape and black pebbled leather. But the devil's in the details, the tan topstitching and complementary leather rings at the base of the straps. These accents give the [...]
  48. Beauty.com Adds Accessories | Shopping Website Adds Purses & More - 2011-06-27 03:05:30-04
    Online retail giant Beauty.com has expanded to feature a range of accessories. The selection is diverse, but in keeping with Beauty.com's goals the items all strive to make women look and feel more beautiful.

  49. Tylie Malibu Prana Tote | Oversized Over Decorated Tribal Fabric Handbag - 2011-06-27 04:05:14-04
    Tylie Malibu gives us a lot for our dollar with the Prana tote. But is it too much? Honestly, I think so. There's so much going on here that I can barely take it all in. It's made with a range of different fabrics, each with a vibrantly colored tribal print. These clashing swatches would have [...]
