One of the last Oscar de la Renta handbags we covered on PurseBlog (other than fashion show recaps) was in 2008. In the world of fashion, and everyday world, that is a long time ago. Apologies to all of you for leaving Oscar de la Renta off our site and apologies to Oscar himself, because we love you! Now it is time for a re-introduction to Oscar de la Renta bags and it is coming at just the perfect time. Because a couple of years ago I did not remember loving his accessories collection as much as I do now, so now I can rave about his creative genius.

With its simple design, luxe materials, and chic finish, the Oscar de la Renta Taylor Bag has caught our attention.

Everyone needs a good everyday bag, it is something we speak about often on PurseBlog and focus on for our readers. When I get emails asking about what kind of bag I would tell someone to buy, it truly depends on what you need. The Taylor fits the definition of an everyday wearable bag and a go-to classic. There are multiple versions of the Taylor, including gorgeous exotic ostrich skin, which can be used not just for many seasons, but many years.

If you are looking to add an everyday bag to your wardrobe, I would opt for the Deerskin Taylor. All of the Taylor bags have handmade handles, which I absolutely adore. The twisted handle, made of leather and chain, adds the perfect break in a simple design. Ultimately, the handle adds style without being overly trendy. The body of the bag is simple and spacious. On the inside you will find logo lining, a zipper pocket, and a cell phone pocket.

In the Deerskin, white, red, black, and brown are available. There is also a canvas version which fits into the natural materials trend perfectly. And of course there is ostrich, which I can say nothing other than it is incredibly gorgeous. The last two versions of the Taylor include python and a really interesting Mosaico Embroided Gold Lambskin version. The dimensions also fall in line with the idea of this being a perfect everyday bag, measuring 16″W X 11″H X 5″D. What it comes down to is which material/color of the Oscar de la Renta Taylor bag is right for you.

I am personally loving the red deerskin version, as red is a color hard to perfect and Oscar picked a shade that is totally sassy.


All are available via Oscar de la Renta online. Canvas $1,690, Deerskin $1,590, Embroidered $2,190, Python $2,950, and Ostrich $5,450.

Deerskin (white) – $1,590.00

  • Alana

    This bag is so gorgeous Megs!! I would love the red one too!!

  • Stacy

    I haven’t thought about Oscar creating bags. I just think about the perfume, clothes and a Barbie he had created many years ago. These are truly beautiful bags. I’m on board. (fb)

  • Jane

    I want the ostrich bag and the handles right now on my arm. The color is incredible, the handles are exquisite. I would use this bag to the point of utter disrepair. Wow I am so in love with this bag as staple everyday bag. I have never really thought about Oscar de la Renta as a bag designer wow I was wrong this season. (fb)

  • Tamee

    Too funny regarding the post about the Barbie! I remember that as well! And these bags are so gorgeous! (fb)

  • Swags

    I love the red ostrich bag. I think its very pretty and would be a great everyday bag. The other styles shown don’t appeal to me. The trim and detail on the last one I am not fond of. (FB)

    the ostrich is absolutely beautiful! and the handle is a nice touch (fb)

  • CW

    Thanks Megs for doing a piece on this bag! Though I’m curious, why is the canvas version more expensive than the deerskin version? Is deerskin considered a “less luxurious” leather?

    • CW


  • Rosanna

    A little plain, but I’m loving the braided handles on the bag. I think this might be the first time I’ve heard of a deerskin bag? Looks pretty though! (fb)

  • Karin bag3bag

    Beautiful bags…I love the red deerskin and the gold Mosaico lambskin. It is such a simple classic design, it looks great in canvas or leather. After looking at the website, I am in love with SO many of their designs.

  • ad

    there is only one thing about to come out from my mouth right now and that is ‘WOW!’. that’s stunning! I’m totally loving the handle. now, if only i have two thousand dollars stash somewhere in my ‘secret drawer’…. (fb)

  • mochababe73

    Pretty bag, but it looks small. I don’t know if I could use it everyday. I didn’t even know that Oscar made handbags.

  • Shannon

    Like others have said, I didn’t even know that Oscar made handbags, I am much more familiar with the couture dresses. But I love this bag! It has such a classic shape, but in such lovely, unexpected colors! Definitely something for everyone with the Taylor bag. (fb)

    My favorite thing about these bags are the handles, while these bags are pretty simple I appreciate the detail that went into the handle giving it a little flare!

  • farija

    i know this has nothing to do with this topic, but has anyone seen the G by GUESS MILLER HOBO!! KILL THE DESIGNER PLEASE!


    aough i need a everyday bag so bad
    but i dont like this one at all

  • gjaneco

    I can’t say I like this bag. Looks really ordinary :s

  • ceejay

    It looks nice, but seems way overpriced. Why is ostrich so expensive?

  • ceejay

    oops i forgot to (fb)

  • Elyse

    it’s a pretty bag, but it seems a bit overpriced for the design. (fb)

  • pursemonkey

    I love the look of the ostrich version but not the price;) Not wild about the other versions. It’s a pretty bag but nothing about it really jumps out at me. Perhaps if the price point was lower I would reconsider. (fb)

  • Tanyus

    I like the canvas one, but I think it’s too expensive for everyday bag (fb)

  • BLynnT

    Omg, I LOVE the Ostrich version! What a great color! Would look great with jeans and a white tee (Megs’ favorite). (fb)

  • Anna

    Oscar De La Renta makes also great clothes for man!!! (fb)

  • Sofia Nolan

    hmmm…not really my style

  • Kelly

    The canvas one is kinda cute… but why is it more expensive then deerskin? (fb)

  • Lydia

    This is an everyday staple! Oscar de la Renta has done the hobo trend justice. I tip my purse to him. LOL (fb)

  • Gelynn

    I’m sure it’s a nice bag but it’s not my style. =[ (fb)

  • Michele Suleiman

    It looks like something I’ve seen before… the Gucci horsebit hobos? Not too original, but the ostrich skin looks gorgeous. (fb)

  • Jose

    Love the ostrich! (fb)

  • diana

    love the simple elegance and easiness of the shape. the braided handle is done well and adds interest to the simple silhouette. (fb)

  • Hellena

    Obviously I like the Ostrich one which I can’t afford (fb)

  • Carolyn Barnett

    I love the purse that looka like snake skin.I got copperhead bit a few years ago.OUCH!!!!

  • Jane

    i don’t think there is anything ‘wow’ with this bag, it looks like something I get at Ross!! It’s too expensive for the designs that they have.

  • Allison

    Love the twisted handle and the ostrich skin looks luxe. (fb)

  • Barb

    Love the ostrich but hate the deerskins with the different handle colors. I’m reallly not fond of the look of the triangle shaped pieces which attach the handle to the bag. Rebecca Minkoff’s perforated leather hobos have this also but in the same color. Still not a fan! (FB)

  • sarahthetran

    ah… the ostrich. i knew one day you’d find purpose in this world. (fb)

  • sarahthetran

    i agree though w/ some of the comments. it looks pretty ordinary. what do you see in it? — not saying that sarcastically — i really mean it. what do you see in it?!

  • sarahthetran

    forgot to (fb) that last one :)

  • Audrey H.

    I love the red, a nice usable classic. (fb)

  • Yoonmee

    Nice, simple, classic design, but a little bit boring. I also worry that the twisted shoulder strap will dig into my shoulders and leave marks if I’m wearing a tank top.

    • Yoonmee

      Oops, forgot to add (fb) to my comment.

  • Eric

    ahmm shape is ordinary, design was the natural texture of the leather(ostrich or snake) dyed,, material makes it expensensive, whoala you have a bag, it doesnt impress me-(fb)

  • Nirali

    I do like the shades of the bags. but i wouldnt pay as much as oscar’s bags cost for this one…it just doesnt have enough oophf maybe?


  • Silvana

    i love the color on the first one, a touch a salmon is always necesary. (fb)

  • Eric

    i am not really a fan of oscar dela renta but his works were great and admirable-(fb)

  • Alia

    im only liking the ostrich, but there’s nothing special about them! maybe is just me! (fb)

  • Maria

    fan! gorgeous color! (fb)

  • Jocelyn

    Looks like a fun bag to carry (fb)

  • Sonya

    I love Oscar de la Renta, this bag is a great color and the ostrich skin takes it to another level.

  • Monique

    Cute, but out of my price range. (fb)

  • Joy
