Bag Lady

Our super stylish intern Desi (really, you should see her handbag collection!) rounded up her favorite bag trends for Spring/Summer. I'm partial to the technicolor rainbow Prada hobos. Which one is your favorite?

Nothing beats the thrill of a new handbag and this spring they’re bigger and brighter than ever. From the psychedelic colors of the vintage inspired Spring 2008 Prada collection...

To that must have patent leather piece. (Valentino Collection Spring 2008)

My personal favorites are the oversized, (yes my whole life is in here), capacious handbags. Like this brown Francesco Biasia ‘Magda’ Tote (top) ; and Urban Outfitters’ hip black Sabina Leather Convertible Satchel (bottom). The bigger they are the better!

Metallic colors are definitely the new trend in solids, with hues ranging from the standard silver and gold (Burberry Spring ’08)

Burberry Gold Metalic

to the bright pink and purple seen in Valentino’s Spring runway show.

And then there’s every woman’s wardrobe staple; the day to day leather purse. From fun and funky Patchwork designs like the Lockheart ‘In Pieces- Beth’ Satchel

to the plain white of the Softy Aline by the Marc by Marc Jacobs line.

Don’t forget those light spring clutches in colors to accentuate any outfit!

This is the MAXX New York ‘Bleeker Medium’ Patent Croc Clutch

And now that we’ve stocked up on accessories, let’s hope there’s money left for clothes!
