Balmain Rock Leather and Crocodile Patchwork Shoulder Bag | Exotic Metallic Purse

Balmain Rock Leather and Crocodile Patchwork Shoulder Bag | Exotic Metallic Purse

Vera Bradley Cha Cha Handbag | Pretty Ruffled Layered Patchwork Handbag

Vera Bradley Cha Cha Handbag | Pretty Ruffled Layered Patchwork Handbag

Coccinelle Raquel Patchwork Tote | Luxury Pleated Leather Hold-all

Why have just one leather when you can have three?!

Fossil Ari Patchwork Hobo | Bright Tribal Patterned Tote

Fossil Ari Patchwork Hobo | Bright Tribal Patterned Tote

Be warned - don't look directly at this hobo as you may well go blind!

Timmy Woods Tissie Tote | Floral Beaded Novelty Bag

Timmy Woods Tissie Tote | Floral Beaded Novelty Bag

We are used to seeing exceptionally unusual novelty bags from designer Timmy Woods. Comparatively, this beaded tote is quite normal, quite subtle.

Laurel and Sunset Boho Patchwork Exotic Print Bag | Spacious Hippy Patterned Tote

Laurel and Sunset Boho Patchwork Exotic Print Bag | Spacious Hippy Patterned Tote

Kathy Van Zeeland Stripe Five Tote | Bold Striped Patent Synthetic Handbag

Kathy Van Zeeland Stripe Five Tote | Bold Striped Patent Synthetic Handbag

3.1 Phillip Lim Gwen Patchwork Bag | Crinkled Patent and Metallic Leather Patchwork Satchel

3.1 Phillip Lim Gwen Patchwork Bag | Crinkled Patent and Metallic Leather Patchwork Satchel

Phillip Lim's signature minimalism sure went out the window on this one. If he proved his versatility with the Doctor's Bag, it just looks like he has something to prove with the Gwen, which makes all the standard mistakes typical of overworking: too many colors, too many textures, and too ...
