Spring bags from contemporary designers are starting to roll out to retail, chiefly among them the Rebecca Minkoff Swing Quilted Shoulder Bag. The Swing is a new shape for 2011 that still has a lot of elements that will prove familiar to Minkoff fans, but the traditional chain strap and quilting give it a little extra oomph.

I’ve belabored the point of having a petite black shoulder bag in your closet, but this is just another example of why they’re so great. Daytime, nighttime, anytime – this bag is sure to look appropriate and chic. The texture will make this one stand out, but not in a negative way.

Buy through Saks for $350.

    I LOVE this style, though prefer those that are not quilted. Hope to be addding one to my collection in pearl gray. :) (ipad)

    Cute bag, I hate the quilted look though. (ipad)

  • Marianna

    I REALLY like this bag. My handbag collection doesn’t currently have a petite black shoulder bag and this one looks like just the one for me. The occasional stud in the quilting makes it look somewhat floral. I love the way the shoulder strap is done. I find it all very appealing. The price point makes it a no brainer. I think I NEED this one! (ipad)

    I think lots of us are on the quest for a petite/small black shoulder bag that’s a little dressy. This one is a little larger at 11x7x4, but I do like the chain/leather shoulder straps and the different circular quilting. I just purchased a similar bag by DKNY that’s 9x7x3, and has traditonal quilting and a gold chain double shoulder strap (or can be used as a single cross-body strap) that’s my new dressy black shoulder bag.

    Ooo, I like it! And its not really that small- I would use this as an everyday bag for when I don’t have school. (iPad)

  • Vitta

    Love the simple lines, the sensible size and the great price. But I’am not a fan of tassels and studs. They look dated to me. (ipad)

  • 19yearslater

    Ohh, nice. It has elements of Chanel and Balenciaga but copies neither brand. I would LOVE to have this in my handbag collection. So much so that I might contemplate adding it.(ipad)

  • Lianne

    Love the studs. Not too many, just enough to give a little sparkle. (ipad)

  • Limey

    i like it, not bad a price either (ipad)

  • spanish moss

    this bag’s pretty cute, but the tassels have to go. (ipad)

  • Salina

    I just bought a plain leather black one through nordstrom. As soon as I saw it, I knew the search for my perfect black bag ended. (ipad)

  • rebecca

    I love this bag which surprises me because I usually don’t like the quilted look on RM bags. (ipad)

  • Angie

    I like it, very cute. The quilted design is very unique and the touch of studs is perfect.

  • Sarah

    I am loving this bag! (ipad)

  • helen

    Wonder if the chain strap is comfortable. (ipad)

  • Tonya

    I really don’t like tassles on my handbags! so I would prob. have to pass on this (ipad)

    • nagajolokia

      too bad. Tassels are removable you know? Just take them off if you dont like it. Your loss.
