Spring has officially sprung in New York, so we headed uptown to see what the city’s most posh New Yorkers are carrying now that the temps have begun to warm up. The Upper East Side is a pretty, historic neighborhood home to some of the city’s priciest boutiques and homes. Not to mention, from Central Park to the Met and the shops on Madison Avenue, the UES is a place to see and be seen. The fashion is truly in a league all its own uptown, and as for the bags, well, you’ll have to see what we spotted below! We spent some time last month strolling the UES to bring you some of the best bags Upper Manhattanites and tourists alike had to offer. Take a look below at the many Bags in the Wild we spotted on NYC’s Upper East Side!

Birkin, Kelly and Constance Oh My!

Why does it have to be a fake?

Whats the secret to tell that a bag is fake by just pictures? The super fakes are really good. You need to feel the bag and difference is usually in the details usually on the inside of the bag. But then again many super fakes are claiming now that their products can pass professional authentication. And i always say dont judge a book by its cover so now matter how casual or over dressed the one who is wearing the bag its not an automatic conclusion that the bag is fake.

I doubt they were saying it because of the way the person looks – nice coat an a Hermes shopping bag. Usually when people guess at fakes here they know the bag and notice things like proportions being off (handle too long on a structured bag or something), or a color combo that doesn’t exist or things like that.

Not saying Sandy knows for sure, but I don’t think their comment was due to “judging a book by its cover”

Any clues on the maker of the bag in the last photo? Haven’t seen that one before.

The Hermes Constance is really really growing on Me , curious if it comes in more “ Exotic” colors , even as the pink is awesome , I’m thinking yellow , soft pinks , lavenders …And I love how women are carrying their Keepalls like regular everyday bags , I usually carry mine at the gym or as my carryon , but I want to widen my collection .
