I may be beyond sick of novelty bags and their often-limited cleverness, but I’ll never tire of a bag design that genuinely catches me off guard.

If there’s something Dolce & Gabbana loves reliably, it’s a literal fashion homage to something overtly Italian, and for Fall 2015, the duo’s chosen target is the traditional Italian mother.

By now, we’re all well-acquainted with Jeremy Scott’s Moschino. Clothes and their construction are often inspiration for his collections, with things like overalls and moto jackets transmogrified into handbags.
