Any longtime reader of this blog should be able to easily invision the archetypical Botkier handbag – a slouchy, soft leather satchel, usually in a dark color like black or chocolate brown with vintage-inspired touches. Those are the bags that have made the brand tick from the beginning, and although I love them, I’m still incredibly excited for the more colorful and structured options that the brand has created for Resort 2012. We already told you about the Botkier Eden Satchel, and today we’d like to introduce the Botkier Carlyle Bags – whether you’re looking for a satchel or a crossbody, a bright color or a modern texture, this line has you covered.

These bags have everything you need for current trends – they’re structured, angular, bold. The satchel still has a note of the signature Botkier slouch, but they’re a bit more vibrant than the products for which the brand is generally known. I, for one, hope that Botkier stays on this fun, modern path. The accessories world needs someone making handbags this attractive at this price point.
