The “Easy Rider” line has some of my favorite Rebecca Minkoff bags that I’ve seen in quite a while, hands down. I love the zippers, tassels, studs, everything. I love that the bags are asymmetrical, but not in an unpleasing way.

My favorite of the line is probably the Rebecca Minkoff Easy Rider Date Clutch. You could argue that the line is somewhat gimmicky, and I think that gimmicks always work best in small amounts, which makes a clutch the obvious high point for a design with so much going on.

The overall look reminds me of L.A.M.B.’s aesthetic, but it’s not ripping off a specific design that I can think of, so I’m ok with that. In fact, I think this is exactly the direction in which RM needs to go – it’s young, hip and will land in the hands of just the right celebrities, likely increasing the brand’s profile. And isn’t that the whole point – to design bags with which people want to be seen? I’m sure we’ll see this being carried by one of the Gossip Girl actresses in no time. Buy through ShopBop for $375.

    The asymmetry, detailing, and to-die-for color make this clutch so great I don’t care if it’s a gimmick.

    I love this clutch but the two extra studs on the third row totally bother me…it doesn’t look right with the two extra studs and a button. I’m loving the zippers and the asymmetrical design. I don’t know if I love or hate those tassles… (fb)

    I saw this bag in deep purple embossed croc- it was pretty gorgeous and fierce, but larger than I expected it to be. It also came with a chain strap. It had a lot going on, but it worked it well!
