If I had to pick a handbag brand to categorize as perpetually underrated, it would be VBH. The brand turns out handbags in both regular leather and exotics that are consistently subtle, elegant and totally luxurious, and unlike similarly priced bags from more famous brands, you’re not going to buy one of these and then immediately realize that four people in your social circle already have it. Finding something fresh in fashion feels harder every day, but VBH’s bags never cease to provide that for me. I don’t get tired of looking at them, and now there’s a fresh crop of Spring 2014 bags up for pre-sale at Moda Operandi for our admiring pleasure.

The collection includes bags ranging from woven fabric to ultra-luxe crocodile, and for me, the real standouts are (of course) the exotics. Not only are the croc bags predictably beautiful, but VBH’s use of lizard is outstanding. (Lizard, like VBH, is woefully under-appreciated in the accessories world.) Check out our favorite ultra-pricey pieces from the collection below or shop the full selection via Moda Operandi.

As a long-time VBH lover, VBH doesn’t only stand for the designer Vernon Bruce Hoeksema, but also Very Beautiful Handbags to me. 😉

I love it when a designer can pull off exotics in the right color combinations!

I was just wondering, does any designer frequently do stingray? How come stingray is not appearing much even in the exotic skin circuit? 🙁
