If the bags from Versace Spring 2012 are any indication, Donatella Versace may have spied on my childhood vacations quite frequently. For a brand so inextricably linked to Miami, these designs make a certain amount of sense. The starfish and seashells gave way to an endless array of...

What a way to get remembered this fashion week season. Just prior to the start of the Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2012 show guests were forced to stand as three benches collapsed, making who sat on the front row seem rather irrelevant. Nevertheless the show must go on and so it did with editors...

Hermes Spring 2012 didn't have any, and with handbags playing such an integral role in the brand's success, it would be nice to have a more public look at what Lemaire can do with the Hermes' most iconic products. As Gaultier showed us for all those years, they make an excellent canvas for...

Perhaps improbably, Marni is always one of the handbag collections that I look forward to the most during Milan Fashion Week. The brand doesn't have a reputation in the accessories world as a purse powerhouse, but I love Marni's signature blend of girlishness and modernism. The end result is...

Luckily, New Prada Day comes twice a year (or four times, if you count Resort and Pre-Fall, which I do if I'm feeling desperate), and one of those days was yesterday! Naturally, Miuccia didn't disappoint – Prada Spring 2012 was playful, feminine and incredibly smart. Prada's bags tend to...

While we wait for the Milan shows to start in earnest, now seems as good a time as any to post the small but very beautiful collection of bags that graced the runway for Marchesa Spring 2012. I know that bags are an afterthought for the gown-heavy line, but they're always so beautiful and...

I can honestly say, though, that there's not a single bag from Burberry Spring 2012 that I wouldn't carry. Perhaps the biggest surprise from the collection was how little leather it included. In fact, only a few of the woven clutches were entirely leather and a couple of the larger totes...

that Spring 2012 is probably going to be a bit of a boring season for accessories, at least compared to what we've grown used to recently. That being said, a few major designers who have been struggling to find their voices have stepped it up this season, at least when handbags are...

The Balenciaga Fall 2012 runway bags are good. They manage to play with proportion in that signature Nicolas Ghesquiere way without sacrificing wearability, the combination of which is making me absolutely salivate with handbag lust. I never expect to get particularly excited about...

Will the hobo be making a comeback for spring? If Gucci has anything to say about it, the answer is "yes." Ladylike satchels and small crossbody bags have been the currency of the accessories industry for the past several seasons, so much so that Gucci Spring 2012's stable of chain-strapped...
