With 2015 comfortably behind us, we’re looking forward towards a fresh year, at least for the most part. As awards season quickly approaches, it’s time we take stock of the best, worst, and most memorable bags of the past year. Make your voice heard, and vote from now until Sunday, January 10th! The winners will be announced on Monday, January 11th. The fate of the brands is in your hands, perhaps literally.
Pushing the envelope is a must. As a designer, you should always strive to create something unique and personality-driven. But it’s possible to push the envelope past the point of no return. And as a designer, you should also know when to stop.

Calling all sci-fi fans and cartoon nerds! This kitschy bag trend is officially out of hand, but if there’s any occasion where it’s acceptable to whip out a Sponge Bob bag or an Archie and Veronica clutch, Comic-Con International is the place to do it.
