Rebecca Minkoff Owen and Skylar Studded Woven Bags: Rock and Weave

Rebecca Minkoff Owen and Skylar Studded Woven Bags

For most people, summer just started. But in the fashion industry, summer is SO over. Yes, it’s hard to live in the moment when you’re constantly thinking ahead. We’re already shopping for Fall 2013, planning Resort 2014 looks, and anticipating what we will see for Spring/Summer 2014. But that’s not exactly normal and if you happen to be of the “normal-people” variety, you’re just beginning to get into the full swing of summer and can’t even imagine wearing the cashmere-hooded capes and fur-accented boxing gloves I currently have on my wish list. If you say hell, no to fall staples now, then Rebecca Minkoff‘s wicker-inspired bags are for you.

This is straw-style weave for snobs who wouldn’t be caught dead with a prim raffia tote. With a gleaming finish and a sprinkling of studs to ensure the vibe isn’t too sweet, these bags are the best of both worlds. In the Skylar shoulder style and Owen envelope clutch, black brings sophisticated appeal that can carry you into the next season. But you’re not thinking about next season right now! I would go all out with minty green – it really flaunts the wicker detailing and spotlights the slightly subtle trim of studs.

Owen clutch, $495, and Skylar shoulder bag, $420, on Luisa via Roma.
