Coming soon at Net a Porter

We have all been doing it. Sitting here getting rather bored with spring and summer bags and waiting patiently impatiently for the fall and winter bags to arrive. Net A Porter wants to give us a sneak peek, letting us know that new bags will be on their way and sharing a few of them with us.

The Find Again this fall the leopard print has it marks on handbags of all shapes and sizes this season. Love it or leave it, leopard print handbags are not for everyone, yet the trend returns each year with out fail. Not to be overused, leopard print handbags add visual interest to your favorite LBD or all black ensemble.

LeSportsac Leigh Bag

LeSportsac‘s durable fabrics, whimsical prints and modern palettes are always a great combination. The LeSportsac Leigh bag in silver is no exception. The oversized profile and lightweight ripstop fabric make this tote the perfect tote for carrying all of your summer vacation essentials.

Lanvin Reporter Leather Bag

We are loving so many Lanvin handbag styles this season. Our obsession du jour is the Lanvin Reporter leather bag. It is a luxurious combination of two distinct textures accented by an adjustable gold tone chain strap. The contrast of the navy blue distressed leather against the shiny black patent is a unique combination that is tied (literally) together with a grosgrain ribbon woven thru the gold-tone chain strap.

Bag that Style

Ok folks, it is Friday. And over at Bag that Style we do the best we can to identify as many bags as humanly possible. But sometimes we just don’t know what the heck a celeb is carrying. Perhaps the angle is bad or there isn’t enough of the bag visible to actually identify it.

As I have mentioned before, I love surprises, yet I have a very hard time keeping secrets to myself. (Remember the Linea Pelle giveaway teaser?) Well, this past weekend I traveled up to DC and surprised a group of my friends.

Just because Earth Day has passed, that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to keep the idea of Earth Day in your mind. Get fabulous and indulge your globetrotter fantasy while supporting fair trade products such as these fair trade handbags and fair trade totes.

sonia_rykiel_stud_fringe_handbag

Sonia Rykiel may be best known for her knitwear and her namesake ’90s tune by Malcom McClaren, “Who the Hell is Sonia Rykiel?” Today we are swooning over her stud fringe handbag. Made from the softest buttery letter around, the stud embellished shoulder bag has a long skinny shoulder strap and fringe along the bottom.

Everybody is talking about Proenza Schouler. Even though the “it” bag craze has died down, there are still designers that are churning out handbags that are must have’s. The newest addition to this group is Proenza Schouler bags. Celebrities have been flocking to this line and sporting the coveted Proenza Schouler PS1 around town (Mary Kate Olsen and Leighton Meester are two fans).

The Find: Metallic Handbags

Metallic handbags have made yet another appearance this season. On the spring ’09 runways everyone from Prada to Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga garnished their models in shimmery head to toe gold, silver or bronze metallics. Handbags are a clever way to embrace metallics, but keep in mind “less is more”.
