If there’s one regret 2011 that I couldn’t achieve was not being able to obtain certain fashion pieces throughout the seasons. I’m leaving this year with more on my want list than on my acquired list. The good thing (or sometimes good thing) about the fashion world is that designers update their products instantaneously; hence with time, it’s impossible for your lust list to remain short. So my three favorite handbag selections, in random order, for the 2011-year were also three pieces that I unfortunately didn’t add to my collection, yet will carry over into the 2012-year.
There’s a new Couture House that kept the oversized studs fashionable and popular. Alexander Wang carried a distinctive collection of handbags that carried hardware in abundance. Hobos, satchels and my favorite, the Diego Bucket Bag; each arrived with a unique silhouette and a uniformed array of metal studs at the base.
My second pick goes to the Robinson East-To-West Tote by the quickly emerged designs of Tory Burch. This satchel presents pure class and simplicity. I’m a fan of the buttery soft leather this tote carries and the distinct logo emblem is perfectly sized, to where it won’t take away from the natural beauty of this handbag.
The big, bold beauty in blue is the Roady hobo by Yves Saint Laurent. Most of us are fanatics of thick leathers dyed in rich hues, therefore, it’s nearly impossible for this design to disappoint. Oversized, woven handle tops, limited hardware and a striking exterior, if you’re the simplicity type of bagista, this one won’t let down. If bluette won’t make the cut in your wardrobe, the Roady also arrives in dark brown, khaki, poppy and sanguine.
