As more designers break into the realm of handbags, the real contenders stand apart from the wannabes. Donna Karan is a well known label, but not in the world of handbags. Not only are a new batch of Donna Karan bags popping up, but they are grabbing our attention. Looking young, and hip, some of her fall bags feature an array of zippers. Zippers are the new rage, which you will see more of on shoes, bags, and clothing.
I am excited about the Donna Karan Zipped Clutch which brings the perfect bit of punk and rock to a black clutch. Who really wants to carry a plain black clutch these days? Possibilities are endless and while everyone is doing the stud trend I am all for the zipper trend. Must have more zippers.
There have only been a handful of times we have reviewed Donna Karan on PurseBlog and many were, well, not positive. But after Amanda reviewed the Donna Karan Pleated Tote, I found a new love and appreciation of Donna Karan. Whoever is head of accessory design there, needs to stay put. The zipped clutch features all over silver tone zip embellishments on black leather along with visible stitching. The clutch calls to me. No need to be bland with black, be bold with black. New handbag designer love of the day goes to Donna Karan. Buy through Net A Porter for $895.
