On behalf of Handbago, we’d like to congratulate the winners of the 2010 Handbago Awards! Thank you to all of our bagistas who voted for this year’s favorites! And the winners are...
Best Clutch | 2010 Handbago Award Winner
This year, Cashhimi's Yellow Python Clutch beat out all other clutch nominees. Who wouldn't love an exotic python clutch? Get yours from Cashhimi and be sure to look stylish with any look. What's great about this clutch? Minimalism. Let the beautiful and luxe material speak for itself!
Best Crossbody | 2010 Handbago Award Winner
Everyone seems to be into edgy and tough when it comes to the crossbody, especially since the Crimson Crossbody from Treesje won this category with their studded and zippered bag. Get rocker-chic with this design! Just be sure to throw on some tough leather biker boots to complete the look!
Best Designer | 2010 Handbago Award Winner
Adriana Castro designs have been seen on celebrities like Kim Kardashian and on the big screen in Sex and the City 2. It's no wonder Adriana Castro beat out some of the other designers. Hollywood celebrities and the silver screen in the same year? We are impressed.
Best Emerging Design | 2010 Handbago Award Winner
Lena Erziak is creative and unique, yet still maintains a luxe style and design. Their Paolo Bag is a great example of a great design that still maintains key elements like style, luxury and detail.
Best "It" Handbag | 2010 Handbago Award Winner
The Jimmy Choo Tatum Shopper is the "IT" Bag, hand down. Serious style, uniqueness and edginess fold together to create a luxe piece that will go anywhere. Chains, tassels and python come together nicely for such an amazing design!
Best Satchel | 2010 Handbago Awards Winner
Nyla Noor's Port Vell Satchel is structured and functional with just a whisp of toughness with it's exposed zippers. This carry-all is great on the arm, or use the shoulder strap if you'd rather toss over your shoulder instead. Convenience is key, but style is never sacrificed!
Best Timeless Classic | 2010 Handbago Award Winner
Just beating out Chanel's Classic Quilted Flap Bag, the Hermes Birkin is the Timeless Classic for 2010. Only a single vote separated these two designs. Who wouldn't love to carry this on-arm? Luxury meets classiness with clean lines, luxe material and gleaming hardware create a beautiful classic accessory.
Best Tote | 2010 Handbago Award Winner
Linea Pelle gathered the most votes with their Perry Woven Tote. The woven trend was big for 2010, and this woven leather tote was no exception to the hype. Comfy, slouchy and big enough to carry everything you need in life, this tote is a hit for bagistas.
