Namely, Theyskens' Theory Spring 2012 handbags. As Chioma Nnadi said in her Vogue.com review of the ready-to-wear collection, Theyskens has done well to zone in on the street uniform of his new home of New York City and make that the basis of his collection. That also holds true for the...

As Alexander Wang's line grows and grows, he shows fewer and fewer bags on the runway, much to my dismay. Alexander Wang Fall 2012 yielded enough accessories for us to get an impression of what we should expect come fall, but too few to really satisfy my curiosity as a Wang fangirl. I'll be...

As not only a fan of Alexander Wang but also an owner and wearer of both his clothes and accessories, I always look forward to new stuff popping up from him anywhere I might find it. When I saw the listing for the Alexander Wang Spring 2012 presale on Moda Operandi last week, I got especially...

Despite a design or two that doesn't quite pass muster (riveting just make ostrich skin look strangely mottled on a few of these bags), Bottega Veneta Spring 2012 stands out as a very strong handbag collection in a season that's seen a few stinkers from brands that are usually reliable....

I need to have a moment of honesty here: I know it's been a couple of weeks since London Fashion Week, but I completely forgot that I had these photos from Matthew Williamson Spring 2012 to show you. Williamson isn't known for his bags, but I adore his sense of color and pattern so thoroughly...

For Fall 2011, Salvatore Ferragamo gave us handbag after handbag in black, white or grey, and the collection served as a stark contrast the use of color that permeated most of the other collections for the season. For Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2012, though, there isn't a trop of black or grey...

Excuse me for this moment of bluntness: Miu Miu should consider "refreshing" its handbag team. I'm not saying that the Miu Miu Spring 2012 handbags are bad; they're not. They're fine for the very narrow look of this runway show, but they're not particularly relevant to anything beyond it,...

What we care about, of course, are the handbags from Dior Spring 2013. Raf's team succeeded there as well – the bags were familiar, but not as overly-complicated as they tended to be during John Galliano's tenure at the storied French house. On the Lady Dior bags, for example, all of the...

use their runway shows like accessories ads (bags are a critical source of revenue for most of the designers who make them), but Wang chooses to use his runway accessories strictly to flesh out the mood of the collection instead. That means there's often not much to look at, handbag-wise,...

That's even more impressive when you consider that he's only been including handbags as part of his line for a couple of seasons; where most designers might still be feeling around to find their accessories aesthetic, Jason Wu's Spring 2012 handbags feel relaxed and confident. The...
