botkier morgan satchel As Vlad and I spent time in NYC last week we realized one major thing: fringe is back for fall! I can not tell you how many designers are incorporating fringe into their Fall 2008 handbag lines. Fringe has been known to look ghastly, as many considered the Prada Fringe Bag to be from early 2007. But when done right, fringe can add the extra dimension that sends your bag into a statement piece that is still wearable and not over-powering. I have been a huge fan of Botkier bags and Monica, the designer behind them, is amazing (our interview with Monica to come soon!). The Botkier Bag that I am lusting after for fall is the Botkier Morgan Satchel in grape lambskin leather. This is the small version in the perfect lush color for fall. The supple grape lambskin leather is accented with gunmetal hardware. The top flap zipper opens to offer an additional pouch. I have a major grape crush on this bag and am looking forward to its arrival in June (this is from the pre-fall collection). Price will be $650 and you can inquire further through Botkier.

  • LucianaW

    Realy nice, I love this shape and color.

    Fring really does nothing for me. I saw the Prada bag early last year at the boutique and the SA is trying to convince me that it just look wonderful on my while I was trying to get the image of a shaggy dog out of my mind.

  • dierregi

    Even if I am the only one, I really do like fringes and this color is fantastic. I would buy it straight away

  • Ruby

    Personally I think the color and shape of the bag are beautiful… the fringe… makes me think twice… not crazy about the fringe. :neutral:

  • devlo

    Agree with Ruby — I love the shade of purple on this bag and the shape of it looks hip. Good catch!

  • Kinny

    Perfect size, price in my budget, functional looking for everyday but fringe adds style and personality. Perfect shade of purple for me and love the gunmetal hardware. It’s a buy!!!

  • Antonia

    I LLOOVVEE this color! I love the gunmetal hardware too. The only thing I’m not 100% sure of is the fringe but I must say that the fringe is tastefully done. I hate when a bag has really long fringe-that to me is way too trendy. This fringe I can live with and even though fringe is trendy, it’s a trend that comes back at least every other year so you can use it for one season, put it away for a year, and take it out again and it’s back in style. :razz:

    Got my Small Morgan satchel in Grape today from; it’s beautiful! I was worried that it might be too small, but it’s plenty roomy. And, from what I can tell, the Large version is less than 2″ bigger in height, width and depth. The Small’s just perfect for me…

    Now I am waiting for the Gemma continental wallet in Grape to come stock…

    I just love purses…what can I say?!

  • Kathey

    I love the shape, design, and color of the bag! It makes me want to buy it but the fringe could have been done better, I like fringes on bags! Brings out the tiger in me! rawr! lol

    Have a good day!
