Fall marks the time on the fashion clock for layering, looking chic and stepping out of your comfort zone. I know it might seem like a contradiction to step out of your comfort zone during a season where the weather calls for being anything but uncomfortable, but fall is the ultimate statement-making season to show off your stylish efforts. And although it's much easier to slap on a pair of sweats and call it a day, fall is the quintessential time to unveil your inner fashionista, even if it only makes an appearance one day out of the season.
The latest from epic fashion house, Louis Vuitton, definitely has its share of ooh’s, ah’s, and oh-no’s. This fall 2011, expect to find an uprising of textured materials; whether you’re en route with snakeskin, or the more untraditional pilate style, LV has all their bases covered. Handbag structures are kept simple and relatively clean, which helps keep the textural elements as the focus of the collection.
Celine’s spring 2011 collection hits the mark for the season, especially with the totes that are featured in their casually high-fashion ad campaigns. Seeming contradiction: yes. The juxtaposition of the the lady-like structure, against a retro-skate scene is nothing short of a genius concept. These handbags maintain the signature class that Celine is renowned for, and the edgy, street-style direction of the campaign boldly proclaims that their handbags are not for the faint of heart.
Burberry puts a chic spin on the iconic UK punk scene with the Large Studded Python Tote Bag. The use of luxe 100% python material, coupled with a slim, structured frame adds a subtle balance and refinement to this otherwise rebellious tote. Another great aspect of this handbag is the lightweight appearance of the white coloration, versus a predictable black color which would risk its elegance and look harsher to the eye.
Love Gossip Girl style? Then you will love Michelle Vale designs. This upcoming show, which airs on Monday the 24th, is featuring Serena carrying Michelle Vale's Daga Python Clutch with a removable snake chain.
Beirn Bags was launched in Fall 2007 by a mother and daughters trio who wanted to design a handbag made from the snakeskin that would ultimately be a keepsake to remember their amazing Indonesian vacation. Now, their handbag line has developed into a worldwide excursion based out of New York. New prints, a variety of vibrant colors and casual yet wearable styles all lead up to the perfect handbag line for the jet setting and trendsetting lady.
Whether it be snakeskin, leopard print, crocodile, or tribal print, exotic prints are taking over the spring fashion season. Exotic prints are seen from top to bottom, from tanks to heels, on headbands and on handbags, and Handbago has noticed quite a few handbag designers catching onto this current trend. Exotic prints are edgy, flirty and cool; thus, they can be worn casually or on a night on the town. What's phenomenal about this trend in prints is the varying price range one can have it in!
Designer Katherine Fleming dances with exotic materials in her latest collection, and I'm ready to follow her lead! I am absolutely fascinated with how Fleming pulls off a brave mix of trends that conservative women and divas will equally adore for daytime and evening outings. From python to minnows' fish scales, her bags transcend from earth to sea and leave us in the clouds.
