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...

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...

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...

's there is beautiful, of course, but there's just not much of it, particularly when you consider that Hermes' brand identity is centered so heavily on the art of the leather bag. I can understand Lemaire's apparent desire to imprint his DNA on the brand before venturing to heavily into the...

In all the hustle and bustle of getting through the end of the fashion season, we've still got a few collections that we didn't get a chance to write about but we think you should see.
