Hi mary,

  1. Christian Louboutin Sybil Tote | Beige Authentic Springbok Fur Handbag - 2011-11-14 22:56:58-05
    Christian Louboutin tends to create elegant clutch purses to pair with his red soled shoes. They're beautiful, but not very practical. So it's refreshing to see the designer offering a much larger, but no less luxurious, handbag with the Sybil. Louboutin's use of genuine fur is controversial, but I can't be too critical of the designer's [...]
  2. Jessica Simpson Naomi Hobo | Beige Crocodile Embossed Synthetic Handbag - 2011-11-15 01:05:43-05
    Jessica Simpson proves a sophisticated hobo bag doesn't have to cost a lot of money with the Naomi. While the Naomi has a hint of slouch, it's much more structured than most bags of this style. It's also shaped more like a bucket bag than a classic crescent hobo. These differences go some way towards making [...]
  3. Designers Make Mochila Bags for Moda Operandi | Valentino, Maison Martin Margiela & More Reinterpret Tribal Knapsacks - 2011-11-15 02:44:03-05
    Lauren Santo Domingo, the co-founder of fashion sales site Moda Operandi, has tapped 11 leading designers to reinterpret classic woven mochila bags. Esteemed fashion houses including Valentino and Maison Martin Margiela have gone tribal for the BeLive Wayuu Mochila Project. Mochila bags are a kind of knapsack handwoven by the Wayuu women living in Northern Colombia. [...]
  4. Latico Joplin Laptop Tote | Gold Leather Pleated Tech Handbag - 2011-11-15 03:37:04-05
    In this busy modern world, most of us never leave our technology too far behind. Latico ensures we can keep our laptop and our style when we step out with this Joplin Tote. This tote's cheerful golden color turned my head. All too often tech accessories have masculine neutral tones, so it's refreshing to see one [...]
  5. Tamara Mellon Leaves Jimmy Choo | Co-Founder Quits Fashion House - 2011-11-15 04:03:01-05
    Jimmy Choo co-founder and chief creative officer Tamara Mellon has abruptly left the company she established 15 years ago with little notice or explanation. Mellon sold the company in May to Labelux for £525 million. Both Mellon and her chief executive officer Joshua Schulman were expected to stay on as creative consultants. However she's abandoned her [...]
  6. Cynthia Vincent Anderson Messenger Bag | Chic Snakeskin Embossed Leather Handbag - 2011-11-15 05:08:35-05
    Messengers tend to be casual affairs designed for toting textbooks to class. But Cynthia Vincent has revealed the sophisticated potential of the style with this Anderson bag. At its heart, this is the same casual flap-over design we've come to know and love. But its luxe looking materials set it apart. The body is made from [...]
  7. Sondra Roberts Lace Flower Minaudiere | Elegant White Floral Decorated Purse - 2011-11-16 01:44:36-05
    Sondra Roberts has made my heart go pitter-patter with this feminine lace flower minaudiere. This egg-shaped purse appears to be covered with lacey flowers taken from ornamental doilies. Each bloom, even the teeny tiny ones, is dotted with an opalescent bead at the center. The combination of pearls and lacey flowers brings a sweet old-world charm [...]
  8. Maggie Kervick's Condom Handbags | Lifestyles Collaboration I'm Covered Accessories - 2011-11-16 02:31:38-05
    We see many unusual designer collaborations at Bag Bunch, but few are as quirky as this one. New York accessories designer Maggie Kervick has teamed up with Lifestyles condoms to create the I'm Covered accessories line. The collection features the Dirty Little Skyn make-up bag, the I'm a Slave for Skyn wristlet, and the Living in [...]
  9. Guess Lelah Handbag | Large Top Handle Faux Fur Purse - 2011-11-16 03:46:56-05
    Guess lets its materials do all the talking with this Lelah handbag. In many cases it's admirable to allow the fabrics to speak for themselves, but Guess' approach seems lazy here. The faux fur is nice enough with its plush finish, but Guess hasn't really done anything with it. The boxy shape doesn't seem quite right, [...]
  10. Hugo Guinness Designs for Coach | Art Decorated Men's Accessories - 2011-11-16 04:41:56-05
    Coach is the latest handbag label to team up with an artist for a new accessories line. The American fashion house has worked with Hugo Guinness for its latest limited edition range. The London-born New York artist has lent his bold black sketches to 17 different accessories including leather wallets, reversible tote bags, key chains and [...]
  11. Brahmin Mia Mini Bag | Small Croc-Embossed Leather Purse - 2011-11-16 05:03:52-05
    Brahmin gives us all the features we love in a tote bag in miniature form with this Mia Mini Bag. Before you get up in arms about the material, the Mia's made of croc-embossed leather rather than authentic crocodile. I won't get into the ethics of killing cows over the reptiles, but it does seem to [...]
  12. Fossil Lola Hobo | Colored Patchwork Leather Chevron Handbag - 2011-11-17 01:19:02-05
    Fossil breathes new life into patchwork with this rainbow colored Lola hobo. The combination of bright hues and chevron style angular swatches makes this hobo feel fun and fresh. It's not the height of fashion, but it'd be a playful addition to a casual ensemble. Rather than complementing an outfit the colors should add a contrasting [...]
  13. Matthew Campbell Laurenza Designs Handbags for Gilt.com | Jewelry Designer Creates Gold & Purple Crest Purses - 2011-11-17 02:35:45-05
    Jewelry designer Matthew Campbell Laurenza has turned his talents to handbags. The man behind MCL will release two new spring collections tomorrow exclusively through Gilt.com. Fashionistas can choose from the Gold Crest and Purple Crest lines, both of which are finished with gemstone encrusted latches and handles. The handcrafted Gold Crest purses feature embroidered fabrics paired [...]
  14. Balenciaga Carreaux Pochette | Versatile Black Woven Leather Purse - 2011-11-17 03:14:03-05
    Balenciaga's never been one of my favorite fashion houses. The familiar hardware and styling of its iconic City, Work, and Weekender bags never really grabbed me, and it seemed the label was resting on its laurels. But then I met the Carreaux, and all my reservations melted away. Balenciaga has avoided the fussy styling that usually [...]
  15. Timbuk2 Makes Map Messenger Bags for Cyclists | Handbags for New York & San Francisco Bike Lovers - 2011-11-17 04:17:16-05
    Timbuk2 ensures you'll never get lost with the release of its new limited edition Map Messenger Bag. The mid-sized casual bag features a Google bike map sewn into its flap closure. Cyclists can choose from either Timbuk2's native San Francisco or the bright lights of New York City. Whichever location takes your fancy, lifting up the [...]
  16. Guess Retro Croc Clutch | Orange Patent Synthetic Purse - 2011-11-17 05:18:31-05
    Guess imitates luxury for girls on a budget with this Retro Croc Clutch. Sadly though, it's a pretty poor mimic. That's hardly surprising for a Guess purse. Its crocodile scales seem like they're barely trying to emulate the reptilian skin. Its glossy surface might pass for a genuine patent leather if it wasn't so puffy. The [...]
  17. Jerome Dreyfuss Momo Saddle Bag | Small Bordeaux Wine Calfskin Leather Purse - 2011-11-18 01:04:27-05
    It doesn't have any frills or fashion forward details, but the fine craftsmanship of Jerome Dreyfuss' Momo Saddle Bag has stopped me in my tracks. This is a small saddle bag but it packs a powerful punch, both stylistically and functionally. Its calfskin is stunning, smooth and beautiful in rich bordeaux wine. The leather is a [...]
  18. BILOTEcouture Launches ZINA Bags | African Accessories for Winter - 2011-11-18 02:28:26-05
    African themed online shopping destination BILOTEcouture is launching an exclusive new accessories collection, called ZINA, this winter. The ZINA bags and footwear look to bridge the gap between High Street fashion and tribal artistry. Common Western design elements are juxtaposed with colorful African textiles patterned with bold prints. BILOTEcouture founder Edith Nkwocha said she drew inspiration from [...]
  19. Kotur Becker Colorblock Bowler | Red & Silver Exotic Handbag - 2011-11-18 03:40:02-05
    I've always enjoyed Kotur's elegant clutch purses but generally its larger bags let the line down. But the fashion house has got things right with the Becker Bowler. This seems to be the day for surprising me, because I'm also not usually a fan of colorblocking. Yet I find the mix of colors and fabrics here [...]
  20. Gura Gear Releases Chobe | Practical Sailcloth Business Travel Camera Bag - 2011-11-18 04:47:30-05
    Gura Gear has released the Chobe, a functional handbag which promises to take care of your business, travel, and photography needs. It seems ambitious for a company to claim their accessory can do it all, but this one's dimensions give me hope that it might. In regular mode it's large enough to hold a 15-inch laptop, [...]
  21. Etienne Aigner Krista Satchel | Brown Python Embossed Frame Flap Handbag - 2011-11-18 05:31:44-05
    Etienne Aigner, where have you been hiding? The usually pedestrian fashion label has created an uncharacteristically fashion forward satchel with the Krista. If I didn't know better I'd swear this was the work of some high end European designer. Its honey colored snake embossed leather is beautiful, with just the right amount of tonal shading. It's [...]
  22. Betsey Johnson Betseyville Heart-Y Girl Shopper | Cute Studded Heart Denim Handbag - 2011-11-19 01:41:31-05
    Betsey Johnson tones down her usual flash for this Heart-Y Girl Shopper from her Betseyville line. The deep blue denim is a much tamer choice than the animal printed synthetics she tends to favor. A giant heart at the center is outlined with black shiny synthetic, and decorated with a smattering of studs. I wouldn't necessarily [...]
  23. Coach Eyes China Expansion | American Handbag Label Aims for Chinese Domination - 2011-11-19 02:27:38-05
    Coach might be as American as apple pie, but in three years the fashion house hopes that China will be its largest market. Not content with the $300 million it expects to make in China by the end of the year, it aims to post $500 million in annual Chinese sales by 2014. The company isn't [...]
  24. Kate Spade Sorbonne Square Evangeline Shoulder Bag | Colorful Satin Check Purse - 2011-11-19 03:11:31-05
    Kate Spade continues to wow me with her colorful, whimsical creations. Last week I was lusting after her cute Confectionary Anastasia clutch, and today I'm swooning over the Sorbonne Square Evangeline Shoulder Bag. This shoulder bag features the same colors as the clutch, but they're rendered in a slightly more subtle way. Instead of large faceted [...]
  25. Eternal Threads Fights Human Trafficking | Handcrafted Upcycled Lungi Bags - 2011-11-19 04:09:44-05
    Eternal Threads is working to combat human trafficking with its handmade Lungi sling bags. The bags are so named because they're handcrafted from old Lungis, which are traditional garments worn by the women of Nepal. These women handcraft the conventional apparel items into these casual cross-body bags. They're large enough to hold essentials, but the soft [...]
  26. Alexander Wang Marion Sling Bag | Small Red Lamb Nubuck Purse - 2011-11-20 01:39:52-05
    If you believe the rumors Alexander Wang is earmarked to succeed John Galliano at Christian Dior. And looking at bags like the Marion, it's not hard to see why. This sling bag has an easy mix of contemporary flair and classic influences. Wang hasn't tried to do anything too fancy. There's nothing to alienate anyone here. [...]
  27. Kotur for J. Crew Clutches | Small Capsule Collection for American Fashion Retailers - 2011-11-20 21:38:02-05
    Evening purse queen Fiona Kotur has teamed up with America's favorite retailer J. Crew for a small capsule collection of clutches. There are just two styles to choose from, but theyre available in a range of colors and fabrics and finishes. The Union has a crisp and clean box shape while the Colony is a little [...]
  28. Nike Gym Club Duffel Bag | Tie-Dyed Green Sports Handbag - 2011-11-20 23:44:07-05
    Nike brings a little hippie flair to the traditional duffel with this Gym Club bag. I've never really warmed to gym bags, perhaps because I've never really warmed to gyms. Just like the best athletes they care more about getting the job done than looking good while they do it. So I find Nike's approach here [...]
  29. Handcrafted xobruno Bags | American Made Unisex Leather & Canvas Purses - 2011-11-21 00:32:02-05
    Michelle Kline offers an alternative to mass-produced, mass marketed bags with her fashion label xobruno. The accessories from xobruno are handcrafted in Kline's adopted home of Portland, Oregon. The line's moniker pays tribute to her grandmother's maiden name. It's a fitting homage as Nana Kline taught Michelle how to thread a needle at age eight, and [...]
  30. Big Buddha Dakota Tote | Embossed Brown Leather Handbag - 2011-11-21 01:35:53-05
    There are few accessories more reliable than a classic tote bag. Big Buddha dresses up this wardrobe staple with some reptilian embossing to create the Dakota. Exotic embossing can make a handbag look much richer when it's done right, or much cheaper when it's not. Thankfully Big Buddha excels with this lizard like design. It's not [...]
  31. Helveticus Swiss Army Blanket Handbags | Recycled Wool Purses - 2011-11-21 02:05:03-05
    Australian label Helveticus turns Switzerland's old army blankets into stylish and sustainable accessories. Once upon a time the Swiss army stockpiled these blankets in their bunkers and depots throughout the Alps in case of war. However there never was any conflict, and when the blankets were replaced with sleeping backs in the 60s they become obsolete. [...]
