Emanuel Ungaro, is that you? I barely recognized you! Granted, it has been a while since I’ve seen a bag of theirs worthy of paying some real attention. But the cool, exciting shape of their three-dimensional Triangle clutch is enough to get me to notice the brand once again.

What's better than a present that is actually a present? Forget the bows, ribbons, and wrapping paper...and Scotch tape, scissors, and fumbling hands. When your bag is designed to look like a glamorous little gift box, every day will feel like Christmas or your birthday.

I will always love the use of cool hardware, especially on a super-functional tote. The "safety buckle" motif is now almost as famous as the designer himself, Christopher Kane, or at least intrinsically linked to his designs, from his wild, belted dresses from Spring ’07 to this season’s smaller, sleeker bags.

While the adage, “things aren’t always as they seem,” may be old, it applies to some of the freshest designs out there. In English, trompe l’oeil translates to “deceives the eye,” and these designers make that deception one that you'll welcome with a smile.

What's at the end of the rainbow? It’s not a pot of gold. It’s something better: Kotur! Inspired by the art and design attitudes of the 1950s, Fiona Kotur looked to the Robert Indiana’s sign paintings and Memphis’ Lansky Brothers, the famed tailors who fashioned Elvis’ signature look.

Other than the fact you’re inevitably going to end up with traces of fuchsia glitter all over yourself, this is the best holiday bag ever. If there was ever a fun party bag made exclusively for the eternal little girl who happens to be all grown up on the outside, Saint Laurent’s Lulu bag is it. Even the name connotes youth and frivolity.

Classic elegance never goes out of style, and Nina Ricci’s Ecrin clutch exudes just that. But this piece isn’t as typically timeless as it might seem at first glance. On the contrary, its brand of classicism is modern and distinctive. Best of all, it feels new, so you won't want to wait on it.

I love green in all its many incarnations, from forest to moss to lime to mint, but it’s military that’s perhaps the most versatile of them all. On the tomboyish side of the spectrum, it eliminates the prissiness from any ensemble, but don’t think the army-inspired shade can’t feel fresh and alluring.
