In general, I have never been a huge fan of Gwen Stefani. Her music just isn’t my style. However, I am familiar with her handbag line and there have certainly been some styles that caught my eye over the years. Recently though, I haven’t really been paying attention to LAMB. I don’t know why, perhaps it is just that nothing has caught my eye. Well… until now. This bag just appeared out of nowhere, but it has certainly grabbed my attention. Meet the LAMB Hatchet Satchel!
While at the mall today, I felt the urge to look at the new satchels that had came out. Out of the hundreds of satchels I saw, only two caught my eye. One by Michael Kors and, another by a brand I’ve never heard of before, Tre Vero. The Tre Vero was my favorite. It was gorgeous, classic and affordable. Just my luck though, the bag wasn’t available in black so I went home empty handed.
When I came home, I spotted the L.A.M.B. “Honey” Satchel and I liked it. Of course, I would want it in black but it’s everything I’m looking for in a satchel. I’m not a fan of shoulder straps featured on satchels but overall this is a gorgeous bag. It looks spacious and the design of it is so classic. If I were to purchase this bag, this is definitely a bag I would carry all year long and not just for Fall/Winter.
L.A.M.B. is one of my all time favorite designer brands. I was very against it in the beginning because I didn’t feel Gwen Stefani should be charging such high prices. She was new to the fashion game and I didn’t think her credibility as a designer was worth the price. She proved me wrong though and then slapped me in the face with all her beautiful pieces she started coming out with throughout the years.
Now, I’m absolutely in love with L.A.M.B. shoes and handbags. The shoes are always beautifully made with gorgeous detail. The handbags can be funky sometimes but they always comes out stunning whether they lean towards edgy or classy.
Totes seem to be a common fashion trend these days. Whenever I go searching for handbags on my favorite sites it seems as if another designer came out with one. I personally don’t like totes unless they have a zip top but I will admit they are very convenient especially if you’re a student or work in an office. The best part about most totes though is that they are fairly reasonable, even designer ones!

Anyone love L.A.M.B so much that they would show no remorse in revealing it to the world with a large and straightforward statement? From a distance, I’ve admired the rocker designs of the ultra cool Gwen Stefani; just never got a chance to snatch up one of her pieces. The countless reveals of styles and patterns each season keep us wondering what we’ll see next. Will the designers of L.A.M.B opt for something feminine, classic or funky? This season we received something fun and with lots of love! The ultra roomy ‘Williamsfield’ Tote arrives logo-less, but with a rather large screen print representing the love for L.A.M.B. I own quite a few designer logo bags, but I feel that this design would be a little too much for my likings. I can only imagine what type of adventure you’ll run into as you take this bag out in town. Bagista’s with knowledge will compliment and at the same time, you’ll get that crowd who will ask you what L.A.M.B is.
Whether you’re a fan of L.A.M.B or not, you have got to give singer Gwen Stefani credit for constantly releasing new styles and patterns to her collection. This time around, artistic giant red roses intrigued her. Gwen is a gal whose tough chic style is seen in her accessories collection but never fails to add some feminine appeal to the handbags she designs and personally carries.
We’re guessing the “free style” is an all-around tote that’s practical for all everyday occasions. Carry on the arm with its braided top handles or by means of the matching twisted body strap that’ll leave you hands free. Front pockets and gussets at the sides create a large area for all of your carrying needs. L.A.M.B is not the first brand that adds floral designs on their handbags, but these twisted roses on an all black polyester background creates a dark-romantic appearance that can be paired greatly with your black attires.
This odd handbag silhouette is nowhere near being called a classic, but apparently more than one designer house digs the oversized, trapezoid-ish tote bag look. They’re both black, edgy, and somehow remind me of a giant fortune cookie, but who exactly came up with this concept first?
The Grant Large Nylon Hobo is one of the latest totes to hit the L.A.M.B scene. A puffy nylon silhouette is held together by an interwoven leather handle and decorated with vertical zippered pockets up front. Prior to L.A.M.B’s release, Maison Martin Margiela had this idea printed on their sketchpads first. Their version of the oversized Leather Slouchy Hobo lacks zippers up front (they’re actually built onto its sides instead), and features a sturdier silhouette; a more defined braided shoulder strap and cool tassel detailing.
Helen Lee Schifter and daughter Storey Schifter made a special appearance on this week’s episode of ‘Gossip Girl’! Helen and Storey appeared as guests of character Eleanor Waldorf to her fashion show. Helen is seen carrying the Haughton clutch in Bristol print from the L.A.M.B. Handbags Summer 2010 collection, which will be available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Zappos.com this May for $145.00.
Will you guys be on the look out for this beauty?
