Proenza Schouler Mini Elliot Suede and Leather Crossbody Bag: Cross(body) On Over

Mary Katrantzou M, A, R, and Y Clutches

Mary Katrantzou M, A, R, and Y Clutches: Love Letters

Mary Katrantzou strikes us once again with the immediate visual impact of her work. In the case of her latest clutches, it’s all about symbols. Don’t expect such a visionary designer to toy with initials and logos in a run-of-the-mill way…

Feeling frisky? We all need to let loose every now and then, or we at least crave a bag that knows how to have a little fun on our behalf. Jimmy Choo is feeling the mood right now, as exhibited by two of their new shoulder bags.

Jil Sander Snakeskin-Effect Tote: Neutral by Nature

Lately, I’ve kind of made a return to more neutral bags, but sometimes you want some boldness to complement the neutrality. This Jil Sander tote allows for both in equal measures, which I really appreciate.

The Row Satchel 12 Textured-Leather Tote: Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough

For a long time, Mary Kate and Ashley were known for their oversized bags (and oversized dresses, sunglasses…you know), but it seems they know how to pare down just as well as they know how to go big.
