Designer Handbags Trends

 

The Affordable "It" Bag
by Mira Lotfallah in Paris


Let’s face it, we can’t all be like the socialites gracing the covers of supermarket magazines, whose qualifications for almost overnight superstar status remain somewhat ambiguous. Nor would we really want to be, and yet sometimes we can’t help but envy the way they spend thousands of dollars on each bag du jour in the same flippant fashion we purchase gum. It used to be that the only way to carry the most coveted handbag was via a trip to the source-some city notorious for designer counterfeit peddlers with their merchandise sadly laid out on trash bags on the street. These bag men call to you, “Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Fendi, Dior” all the while making you slightly uncomfortable with furtive glances for the first sign of the polizia, at which point they, the handbags, and your money disappear. And usually, even if you were able to procure one of these bags, the knowledge that yours was not like everyone else’s somehow always kept you from truly enjoying it. In the back of your mind you could never quite accept that yours was bought by way of some underhanded and illicit process (perhaps there was even some shameless flirting with the sketchy vendor to knock off a few extra lire).

Fortunately, mid-range handbag designers have caught on to this and have begun to imitate the styles you see coming from the famous high end fashion houses, but under no pretenses. They realize that fashion doesn’t just appeal to the rich and famous and all of the hottest trends have suddenly become affordable. True style has no price tag, but unfortunately our handbags do, and the numbers leaping off of some of them make you look inside wondering if it comes equipped with a full bed and bath as well, until now that is. Finally, you can truly be fashionable at all costs.

 

Embracing the Clutch Handbag
by Mira Lotfallah in Paris

The look for fall evenings is, in a word, sleek. Our jeans are skinny and our handbags are tucked neatly into the palms of our hands or under our arms as the classic clutch is revived. And since technological wonders have finally heeded what women have been saying for centuries, that anything in mini is better, the last minute debate over what to bring out is at last a thing of the past and finally we have the freedom to cart around half of our local electronics department and still have room for our beauty regime to nestle comfortably alongside our credit cards. By day our bags are reaching colossal proportions, but as dusk settles upon our respective fair cities we can pare down to the essentials and give into the air of chic the clutch automatically lends its carrier, whisked away by visions of glamorous Hollywood starlets circa 1935. As the magic of autumn settles in and our new wardrobes begin to establish their rightful place in our closets, it becomes clear that finding the perfect evening bag is the next step. Are you looking to make a bold statement, aiming for elegant discretion, or accessorizing for a formal occasion? Leather, fabric, fur, quilted, embroidered, beaded, vintage, or the newest must-have designer? No matter what the question is, the clutch is clearly the answer.
