    Since when were saddle flaps ever out?

    • Givenchy Lover

      I don’t think they were. They are just particularly in style now.

    • They were never unstylish, per se, but like Givenchy Lover said, they seem to have kicked back up into the “actively trendy” category.

    Amanda, you may rethink your opinion on tan suede if you saw my Tan suede Delvaux :)

    • Oh, I’m sure I’d love it! I love a lot of things on other people that I don’t necessarily love for myself. I think the Chloe Faye is beautiful in tan suede, for example, but it would just never feel at home on my body.

    I love the SL, the Mansur Gavriel and the Vanessa Bruno! I saw the Chloe yesterday in person and it’s really cute too. As always, great post! (auto correct tried to turn Mansur into Manure…LOL)

    Jerome Dreyfuss one looks like Hermes Pass Guide bag… which I liked. for the metal sides detail. But I’ve never seen one with the Hermes in person tho. Is it still sold in stores?

    • I’m not sure if the Pass Guide is still around or not; I know it was revived a couple seasons ago in limited release, but I’ve never been entirely clear on whether that was a seasonal thing or something that’s ongoing.

    I’m with you on the 70’s. I can’t stand the boho styles of this decade and can only tolerate a few of the Studio 54 fashion references if they aren’t literal. I wish designers would create new designs that can become iconic in their own right.

    That being said, I’ve always loved this handbag silhouette. This is such an easy style of bag to wear and it can be terribly cute!

    The Chloe is a cute version. Not so sure about the color combo though. I would like the Gucci more if it didn’t have the fabric (canvas?) strap but I get why they designed it that way. It’s just not for me.

    I’m intrigued by the Rag and Bone and would like to see it in person.

    This is a cute selection of bags. Thanks for putting it together!

    I’ve always loved this style of bag!

    I’m hunting down the Jerome Dreyfuss bag. Yes, because it looks like the Hermes Passe Guide bag. I once saw the Passe on a woman in line at an ice cream shop here in Portland, OR of all places. She mispronounced “Hermes”. I wanted to tell her if you can’t pronounce the name you don’t deserve that gorgeous bag!

    I am glad I dug out my old Dooney & Bourke saddle bags now. They are a very efficient use of form and they are more comfortable than my big totes.

  • Scottsdale Kim

    Love the Hermes Convoyeur bag. I have not seen one in person but it appears to be not much more than a wallet on a chain with a saddle shape. Also interested in the Chloe Faye.

  • Rosanna

    Saddle bags never really went away – even though the Drew is a cult bag of the season, Chloe’s Marcie styles have been going strong for years now…. This 70’s trend is having such an impact on bag shapes – it’s nice to see a return to some more retro styling after the angularity and modernity of the last few seasons. I have a feeling it’s going to last for a few seasons.
