Hi mary,

  1. Jack Georges Generations Edge Backpack | Leather Trimmed Black Laptop Knapsack - 2012-01-02 20:13:15-05
    Jack Georges dresses up the traditional backpack with a sophisticated splash of leather. The leather trim makes this a much more sophisticated backpack than the ones we all used to lug to school. There's only a hint of the luxury skin, but a little goes a long way. It's complemented by the black ballistic nylon, which [...]
  2. Soham Dave's Sustainable Handbags | Eco-Friendly Indian Inspired Accessories - 2012-01-02 21:31:01-05
    You don't need to visit India to enjoy the country's stunning handcrafted accessories, thanks to sustainable fashion label Soham Dave. Soham Dave's love of meditation, spirituality, and creativity inspired him to launch the innovative apparel, handbags, and jewelry range that shares his name. The label's products are crafted from natural, biodegradable materials worked by hand to [...]
  3. Jalda Masha Hobo | Black Fabric & Leather Everyday Bag - 2012-01-02 22:39:53-05
    Jalda reminds us that fabric can be every bit as beautiful as its favorite leathers with the Masha. Honestly I thought this hobo was made entirely from leather at first. However it's actually crafted from superior Italian fabric. The softer material creates a more natural hobo slouch, while its subtle metallic sheen helps it turn heads [...]
  4. Innovative Battery Pack Suitcase | Jung Inyoung's High Tech Travel Bag - 2012-01-02 23:30:12-05
    Jung Inyoung provides power on the go with his innovative new rolling suitcase. The technologically advanced travel bag collects kinetic energy as it moves along on its rolling wheels. All that energy is stored inside a battery lodged in the case until you need it later. The luggage features a small outlet which seems like it [...]
  5. Jeffrey Campbell Hoffman Bag | Small Leather & Burlap Cross-Body Purse - 2012-01-03 00:41:12-05
    Jeffrey Campbell takes his typical flamboyant style down a few notches with this Hoffman bag. The Hoffman is very unassuming when compared with his fringed Rizzler backpack and neon colored Abbate purse. Those bags made real style statements, and while they didn't speak to everybody I admired their creativity. The Hoffman is another matter though. While [...]
  6. Jesselli Couture Spa Tote | Affordable Paisley Printed Carry-All Bag - 2012-01-03 20:26:12-05
    Whether you're planning on being pampered or pounding the pavement, this large Spa Tote from Jesselli Couture has you covered. The Spa Tote's body features a bold paisley print. This white and gold version is the most classic option, but girly girls may prefer it with a vibrant pink or orange background. I love the pattern, [...]
  7. First Look at Jason Wu for Target Collection | Handbag & Dress from Designer Diffusion Line - 2012-01-03 21:09:00-05
    With Christmas and New Year's Eve over we can focus on the next big day: the launch of Jason Wu's affordable line for Target. Come February 5 the eagerly anticipated department store collection will hit Targets across America and online. This image gives our first look at the range, which is influenced by French New Wave [...]
  8. Jessica Jensen Melissa Satchel | Structured Black Top Handle Handbag - 2012-01-03 21:59:43-05
    Jessica Jensen serves up the kind of purse that wouldn't look out of place on the set of Mad Men with the Melissa Satchel. The world is embracing vintage style, so rather than seeming like a fashion throwback it's right on trend. Its structured design and clean lines give it a classic style which it so [...]
  9. Yarnz Adds Handbags | Scarf Company Expands Accessories Business - 2012-01-03 22:42:06-05
    New York-based scarf specialist Yarnz has recently added handbags to its flourishing fashion collection. The durable accessories are made from leather coated rubber, so they have the appearance of more luxurious purses without the hefty prices. It's an interesting take on the jelly tote trend, but one that's got a bit more substance and likely longevity. The [...]
  10. Jessica McClintock Lace Minaudiere | Budget Modern Teal Evening Clutch Purse - 2012-01-04 00:43:58-05
    I don't know about you, but my social calendar isn't full enough to justify spending a lot of money on an evening purse. So when I find an accessory like this Lace Minaudiere from Jessica McClintock, one which is affordable yet chic, I can't resist it! Vibrant teal colored satin peeks out from underneath its bold [...]
  11. Jessica Simpson So Lovely Clutch | Versatile Colorblocked Faux Leather Purse - 2012-01-04 01:22:52-05
    Isn't she lovely? Jessica Simpson's gotten things oh so right with this So Lovely Clutch Purse. The So Lovely's design is very simple, which might be why it's so endearing. Jessica Simpson has been guilty of over-embellishing many of her handbags, so it's refreshing to see one that's more reserved. A golden bar cinches in chocolate [...]
  12. Vietnam's Handbag Exports Increase | Asian Nations Shipping Bags to America - 2012-01-04 02:47:44-05
    Handbags have become one of the leading export products in Vietnam. The country's Leather and Footwear Association, known as Lefaso, says the nation produced and exported around a billion dollars worth of handbags last year. And forecasters suggest the business is on the up, with figures expected to jump to $1.5 billion in 2012. Several leading [...]
  13. Jil Sander Circle Leather Clutch | Minimalist Coral Deer Skin Purse - 2012-01-04 17:58:53-05
    Jil Sander's created a purse that does just what it says on the tin with the Circle Leather Clutch. Critics might say it's too simple, but this round purse exemplifies Jil Sander's clean minimalist style. Its circular design seems fresh amongst the sea of box clutches and more relaxed shapes. It's also crafted from superior deer [...]
  14. Botkier's New Spring 2012 Advertising Campaign | Creative Director Snaps New Commercials - 2012-01-04 18:29:20-05
    Monica Botkier has stepped away from her designing desk to capture the images for her fashion label's spring 2012 advertising campaign. As most companies outsource their photography it might seem strange for Botkier to take the reins of her own advertising campaign. However what you might not know is that Ms. Botkier worked as a professional [...]
  15. Jimmy Choo Rivera Wristlet | Versatile Blue Snakeskin Purse - 2012-01-04 22:14:26-05
    Jimmy Choo adds some extra luxury to the wristlet purse style with the Rivera. I'm not sure I've ever seen a wristlet looking quite this chic. The secret is the luxurious snakeskin body, which is all the more appealing in cobalt blue. A neutral hue may still have faded into the background but there's no ignoring [...]
  16. JJ Winters Tiny Turtle Clutch | Embossed Metallic Envelope Purse - 2012-01-05 01:20:25-05
    JJ Winters has crafted another celebrity favorite with this Tiny Turtle clutch. I haven't always warmed to the label's purses as, in my opinion, they try too hard to follow trends. The Tiny Turtle takes a different approach though, and it's a stronger bag for it. The purse's crackled finish is unique, almost like the surface [...]
  17. Aubrey Bags Launch Nears | Isla Simpson's Luxury Purses About to Hit British Stores - 2012-01-05 02:03:26-05
    Fashion designer Isla Simpson will launch her new luxury handbag label, Aubrey, in British stores later this month. Simpson said the understated and timeless bags are inspired by her own English heritage. They should appeal to twentysomethings as well as the more mature fashion lovers with their blend of neutral leathers and daring accents. Snake printed trims, [...]
  18. Joe's Jeans Westport Duffel | Large Casual Black Canvas Carry-All Bag - 2012-01-05 03:03:59-05
    Joe's Jeans has created a casual bag to be reckoned with. Meet the Westport. This is a real departure from the sumptuous leather handbags we used to see from the label. Instead of contemporary styling and a chic skin we see hardy black canvas. There's a hint of leather on the handles and nameplate, but they [...]
  19. Liz Claiborne Renamed Fifth & Pacific | New Name for American Fashion Company - 2012-01-05 04:03:29-05
    Following JCPenney's acquisition last year, Liz Claiborne will operate under the new moniker Fifth & Pacific. The new name signals a new era for the longstanding fashion house, which promises to focus on its remaining upscale labels. Many of the company's lines were sold off over the last year but modern brands like Juicy Couture, Kate [...]
  20. Judith Leiber Ritz Fizz Clutch | Bland Crystal Covered Evening Purse - 2012-01-05 05:49:59-05
    When I fantasize about my ultimate handbags, they're almost always Judith Leiber minaudieres. Their high prices put them out of my reach, but their exquisite crystal covered bodies and expertly rendered details always make me swoon. But perhaps I should reevaluate my stance, because her Ritz Fizz is putting me to sleep. To be fair, this [...]
  21. Juicy Couture Go Steady Key Purse | Overdone Velour Coin Wallet - 2012-01-06 01:48:36-05
    With this Go Steady wallet, Juicy Couture encourages us to continue our recent love affair with the label. Sadly though I think the passion might be fading. For some time now we've marveled at the way Juicy Couture has moved from tacky pink velour accessories to much more refined handbags. However in my opinion this wallet [...]
  22. Mila Kunis Models for Christian Dior | Black Swan Actress Fronts Spring/Summer Ads - 2012-01-06 02:44:15-05
    Marion Cotillard isn't the only acclaimed actress spruiking Christian Dior; Mila Kunis has just joined the French beauty as the label's new international spokesmodel. Mikael Jansson shot the softly lit images of the Ukranian-born actress for the feminine commercials. The moody blue hues don't exactly scream spring/summer collection to me, but the campaign looks gorgeous. Of [...]
  23. Kara Ross Trinity Satchel | Elegant Luxury Blue Alligator Purse - 2012-01-06 03:45:34-05
    Kara Ross has created a purse for girls craving a bit more space with the Trinity. This satchel's mid-sized dimensions and functional features make a refreshing change of pace from the clutches Kara Ross is famous for. It's every bit as luxurious as those evening purses, but much more practical. I'm drooling over this Trinity's electric blue [...]
  24. Lula Sues LuLA | Angelica Cota Takes L'Wren Scott to Court Over Handbag Collection - 2012-01-06 04:29:05-05
    What's in a name? Plenty if you're fashion designer Angelica Cota. The founder of LuLA handbags is suing L'Wren Scott, who recently released an accessories line called Lula. The capitalization may be different but Cota says the similarities between the names will cause confusion. The lawsuit claims that Scott's use of the name "will irreparably harm [...]
  25. Kate Spade With a Twist Tote | Playful Lemon Slice Tote Bag - 2012-01-06 05:26:59-05
    With the winter chill still lingering in the air, it might be hard to think about spring fashions. But the warm weather will be here before we know it, and with all the leading designers looking ahead to the spring/summer season we might as well get on board too. You could grab one of the [...]
  26. Kathrine Baumann Money Bag Minaudiere | Stained Glass Floral Purse - 2012-01-07 01:15:25-05
    Kathrine Baumann takes a break from her playful novelty minaudieres to create this chic money bag purse. This minaudiere has all of the luxury of its stablemates but in my opinion it's much more wearable. Multicolored Swarovski crystals are expertly applied to create a delicate patchwork and floral design. Its rich colors and black lines make [...]
  27. Proenza Schouler's Daring Spring/Summer 2012 Advertising | Natasha Poly Cropped from New Commercial - 2012-01-07 02:03:42-05
    Proenza Schouler is a relative newcomer to the world of advertising, but it's already daring to be different. For its spring/summer 2012 campaign, we see the fashion house forgetting about its model and focusing on its wares. It seems a tad frivolous and somewhat disrespectful to pay for the expertise of Natasha Poly, only to sever [...]
  28. Kathy Van Zeeland Pretty Young Thing Satchel | Pleated Birch Brown Leatherette Handbag - 2012-01-07 22:08:42-05
    Kathy Van Zeeland's gotten in touch with her feminine side to create this Pretty Young Thing Satchel. I was surprised to see KVZ's name attached to this conservative satchel. Its hardware is remarkably reserved, and its flap-over shape an elegant nod to the past. It's far from the most sophisticated satchel I've seen, but it's much [...]
  29. Coach's Year of the Dragon Accessories | Zhang Lan Designs Chinese Dragon Bags - 2012-01-08 00:18:08-05
    Coach is celebrating the Year of the Dragon with a new Zhang Lan illustrated capsule collection. Coach commissioned the Chinese artist, who is a member of the EDGE Creative Collection, to create the Asian dragons which adorn the label's new tote bag and small leather goods. Lan's illustrations resemble the traditional ink style paintings created by [...]
  30. Kavu Samish Backpack | Budget Polyester Pink Patterned Knapsack - 2012-01-08 01:12:03-05
    Kavu's created a backpack for girls on a budget with the Samish. Its name is quite appropriate, because this backpack appears to be the same as many others on the market. Its shape and design are very familiar, but there are a few key aspects that make it worth considering. The Samish is crafted from 600D [...]
  31. Anne Hathaway Models for Tod's | Actress Fronts Signature Collection Spring 2012 Advertisement - 2012-01-08 02:42:29-05
    Anne Hathaway must have a pretty hectic schedule with her thriving movie career and wedding plans, but she's still found time to model for Tod's Signature Collection. The actress makes her return to Tod's for this year's spring advertising campaign. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott took the photos in London last year, as they did for [...]
  32. KC Malhan OMG Wristlet | Gray Beaded Blackberry Pouch - 2012-01-08 03:08:58-05
    KC Malhan combines the traditional craftmanship of the East with Western sensibilities to create this OMG wristlet. The beaded body is trademark KC Malhan but the loud OMG slogan is something new. Frankly it's a little too faddish for me, but I'm sure tweens and teens will love the bold lettering. The beading is first rate but [...]
  33. Kenneth Cole Reaction Stamp of Approval Wristlet | Green Logo Stamped Convertible Purse - 2012-01-09 01:25:12-05
    Kenneth Cole might be congratulating himself on this wristlet from his Reaction line, but I'm afraid I can't give it my stamp of approval. I'm not a fan of signature prints at the best of times, but the jumbled mess of letters that make up the Reaction logo is one of the most distasteful I've seen. [...]
