Noteable Totes

September 10, 2008


So far during this New York Fashion Week, the designers have been really concentrating on the clothes. Most runways haven’t featured too much yet in the way of handbags, but the ones who have made it obvious that the more unique, the better. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill clutches or plain leather satchels, but distinct purses with a sense of style that show us a little about the designer and his/her newest collection.

Take Marc by Marc Jacobs, above, which is offering this seemingly simple little canvas bag with leather straps. What makes it special? The cartoon of a girl in heart-shaped sunglasses and suspenders will be the dead giveaway of the brand.

Below, a very ornate handbag from Matthew Williamson really stood out for its gorgeous flower embroidery mixed with leather and chain details. This combination of tough and feminine really works for me, and it’s in direct relation to the designer’s showing at this Fashion Week.


Even socialite-turned-designer Tory Burch got into the act by transforming her beautiful ikat and batik fabrics into eye-catching totes. While I wouldn’t personally wear the shirt and the bag together, I do appreciate her eye for color and pattern and the bag’s distinct aesthetic.
