Alexander Wang Spring 2012 Handbags is a collection full of backpacks both great and small. Those are the kind of bags that I always think surely will never hit retail but always somehow end up in stores anyway. I'm not certain why buyers think anyone but the most hardcore Wang fans want a...

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,...

First and foremost, if you haven't looked at the full Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 show already, I'd encourage you to head over to Vogue.com and flip through it now; I generally prefer spring fashion week to fall because the clothes are so much more fun, and Jacobs managed to inject a healthy dose of...

Models at the BCBG Max Azria Spring/Summer 2012 show in New York on Sept. 8. Photo: Getty Images New York Fashion Week has officially begun, and we hit the Lincoln Center bleachers hard this morning (our mega-wedges have already started to punish) in order to capture the first show of the...

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...

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...

It has been a few days since New York Fashion Week and you can still feel the high energy and positivity surrounding the designer collections for Spring 2012. The general mood for the trends so far has been a vibrant and cheerful one. It has been filled with lots of vivid colors in shades...
