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

As far as new trends go, the cutout-handle bag is suddenly here to stay in a major way, but that doesn’t mean every designer’s incarnation is doing it for me. It’s Christian Louboutin’s Passage bag that has me the most intrigued.
