This Sam Edelman fringe handbag is our fringe dream come true. While it is apparent that fringe is a noteworthy trend, including on all the hottest celebs, shoes, and bathing suits, we feel this handbag is the perfect example of our ideal fringe bag (whoever thought fringe to the floor was a good idea was clearly misinformed).
The first weekend of Coachella starts this friday, and although this festival is centered around the best bands that this year has to offer, we all know what Coachella really is... a fashion showdown. Luckily, you can count on Handbago to coach you in the right direction (pun totally intended). Although the current season's trends are incorporated, it seems that every year Coachella attendees gravitate towards a free spirited, bohemian vibe- which we love! Whether you plan on going rocker chic or beautiful boho, we have got the bag for you.
Jen Mascali, a native Italian, took her grandfathers passion for leather artistry and made it her own. Earth tones, blue-greys, and soft metallics along with hard finished buckles and hardware in pewter to contrast with the soft leather skins create a raw beauty in these handbags. Coined by the use of fringe throughout the collection along with chain straps and jewelry-like buckles, this naturesque line has combined glamour and mother earth in a handbag.
We are always on the lookout for designers we can fall in love with. Bobby Schandra made my job easy this week. Coming from a family that has been in the fashion industry for decades, it was a natural step for Bobby to find his way in as well-- what was a little bit surprising is his range. Bobby Schandra recognizes the need for handbags as varied and versatile as the style of the modern woman.
My interest in feathers has influenced this week's look. Whimsical and playful, yet still elegant and high fashion, feathers are a must-have aspect to any great wardrobe. Worn casually for a day-to-day look, or dressed up a bit for an evening out, there are many varying ways to wear feathers. This week, I've fallen in love with yet another Angel Jackson design.
It's no secret that Rachel Zoe has a keen eye for fashion--she is one of the hottest celebrity stylists, in case you didn't know. Not only does she strive to make celebrities like Cameron Diaz and Lindsey Lohan stylish and fashion-forward, but she's been keeping her eyes out on the general public through her numerous collections sold on QVC.
Luxurious and exotic clutches that are perfect for an evening out epitomizes the handbag line Asha by ADM. Luxe materials as pony hair, ostrich and suede, exotics like python and crocodile and gleaming gold hardware accents make for an amazing bag to carry. Trust me, I know! Not only was I lucky enough to make my way to Vegas for a few days, but I was also lucky enough to get my hands on a few of these bags and I immediately fell in love. What is there to love about one of these handbags? Allow me to ramble...
Rafé New York has always been on top of the trends. For Rafé Totengco's Spring 2010 Collection he embodied the LA girl in every bag. However, now he is going back to where he is from . Back to Brooklyn, where he uses its "counter-culture Fashionista" to inspire his Fall 2010 Collection.
Fringe is in and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. For spring, it was all about the boho chic look. We saw suede shoulder bags and worn in brown leather fringe crossbody bags. Now that we are looking at what to carry for fall, fringe bags are back in a new way.
