Top 5 Ethno-Chic Bags: Foreign Exchange

Ethnic, tribal, exotic, folkloric: whatever you call it, far-off flair is a recurring theme as designers plunge into Resort and look forward to Spring. While some bags lean towards kitschy and over-the-top, when done right, they exude a well-balanced vibe I think of as ethno-chic.
