Kathy Van Zeeland Flapper Chic Hobo | Snake Printed Synthetic Handbag

Kathy Van Zeeland Flapper Chic Hobo | Snake Printed Synthetic Handbag

Kathy Van Zeeland shows uncharacteristic restraint with its Flapper Chic hobo.

The name doesn't refer to the flapper style of the 1920s, but the hobo's classic flap closure. This curved element mimics the Flapper Chic's soft, voluminous shape. Pleats near the base ...

Nicole Lee Adela Mini Bag | Signature Printed Black Flap Purse

Nicole Lee Adela Mini Bag | Signature Printed Black Flap Purse

Nicole Lee puts a playful spin on high-end style with this Adela mini bag.

The Adela's simple pouchette shape and front flap with its turn-lock closure are obvious homages to leading designer purses. But Nicole Lee's exaggerated features give this purse its point of difference. The ...

Latico Leathers Delilah Cross-Body Bag | Studded Dual Flap Brown Leather Handbag

Latico Leather celebrates studs with this Delilah cross-body bag.

If you aren't a fan of the metal accents you probably won't look twice at this purse. Hundreds of the brass nail heads cover this handbag's large boxy pockets. It could easily have been overkill, ...

Ghibli Flap Satchel Bag | Black & White Quilted Suede & Leather Handbag

Ghibli gives the classic black and white color combination some retro flair with this Flap Satchel Bag.

Elliott Lucca Bubble Flap Shoulder Bag | Brown Pebbled Leather Purse

Elliott Lucca Bubble Flap Shoulder Bag | Brown Pebbled Leather Purse

Elliott Lucca opts for classic styling with this Bubble Flap Shoulder Bag.

Jessica Simpson Abby Wristlet | Red Faux Leather Flap Purse

Jessica Simpson Abby Wristlet | Red Faux Leather Flap Purse

Jessica Simpson serves up her take on the classic wristlet with the Abby.

Jessica Simpson has never been a fashion pioneer, so perhaps it's unsurprising to see this wristlet plays it safe. However while it's not a trend setter, it's still quite stylish. I'm particularly impressed ...


Etienne Aigner Krista Satchel | Brown Python Embossed Frame Flap Handbag

Etienne Aigner Krista Satchel | Brown Python Embossed Frame Flap Handbag

Etienne Aigner, where have you been hiding? The usually pedestrian fashion label has created an uncharacteristically fashion forward satchel with the Krista.

If I didn't know better I'd swear this was the work of some high end European designer. Its honey colored snake embossed leather is ...


Patricia Nash Praga Cross-Body Bag | Classic Burnished Burgundy Leather Flap Purse

Patricia Nash Praga Cross-Body Bag | Classic Burnished Burgundy Leather Flap Purse

Patricia Nash gives classic style a modern makeover with this elegant Praga cross-body bag.
