Made of quilted leather, it features a large front flap closure and a long gold chain strap (that allows it to be worn ...

The Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Flap Chain Strap Shoulder Bag is great for summer in this vibrant ...

Strange But True: A Chanel bag made from Beef Jerky

Look at what Lady Gaga started. Her MTV Video Music Awards outfit seemed to spark the idea of meat products worn as fashion items, like meat necklaces. I don’t eat beef jerky, let alone want to carry it in handbag form. Nancy Wu, a product design student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, crafted her ‘100% Beef Jerky’ purse, entirely out of – you guessed ...

Behind the bag: the making of the Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag

Aside from the Hermes Birkin, Chanel 2.55 Flap bags are arguably the most coveted luxury bags on Earth!

‘Berry’ cute: Sonia Rykiel Crystal berry-embellished leather bag

Sonia Rykiel is known for her signature stripes and crystal-covered accessories, so we were surprised to see this classic and only slightly quirky crystal-embellished bag of hers.

Besides the berry detail, the bag is surprisingly ...

Haute bag of the week: Alexander Wang Marion Mini Flap Bag

It’s good to see Alexander Wang move away from his black phase, yet retain his downtown edge. Only a designer as cool as him could make a mint green bag look slightly edgy. Even though he told Style.com that his direction for Spring 2011 was “pure” and “more optimistic”, he maintained his cool with this Alexander Wang Marion Mini Flap Bag, right off the Spring 2011 runway. ...

Balmain drops the ball on its handbag collection

For all their drool-worthy blazers, jeans and shoes, Balmain really dropped the ball when it came to their introductory line of handbags. For a brand that is all about edge, we were expecting something waaaay edgier than this: Net-a-Porter offers three Balmain handbag styles: the Balmain Leo Swarovski crystal bag, Balmain original leather fringed bag and the Balmain punk suede studded bag, and all ...

Gustto ‘Salto’ Flap Bag

I love the fashion industry. Just when you start to get immersed in the fashions of one season they start to bring out new styles for the next season to tempt you all over again. Although the color palettes for Fall typically aren’t as fun as Spring and Summer, I love the rich colors of Fall accessories, like caramel patent leather. Lately I’ve been less than impressed with new Gustto ...
