Inventive Hand Bags for Spring
By Eva Medoff, April 2nd, 2010
This emerald green gem unfolds like an accordion from it’s window-shade wooden exterior to reveal a silk pouch for valuables inside. $2225 at Stella McCartney boutiques and on the Stella site.
This sapphire-colored Jimmy Choo bag is smooth and slick as a sky scraper, and futuristic to the max. $495 at Jimmy Choo Boutiques.
For something a bit more natural, why not take the ocean as inspiration with Celestina’s beige shell bag—equally shiny as these other architectural pieces, but with some softer, though no less quirky, details. $880 at Barneys.
These Bottega Veneta bags carry on the Asian influence of Stella McCartney’s, but with a rainbow flair. $1180 on the Bottega Veneta site.
If you want to go even further with color, go into the psychedelic range with this Emporio Armani hand bag, whose colors would look at home in a Super Mario Brothers video game. $915 at the Emporio Armani 5th Ave Boutique or on the Armani site.
These Michael Kors bags are so sharp they could probably provide a nice shave—but also would like nice on your arm. $495 at select Michael Kors stores (call 1.866.709.KORS for locations).
