Jill Milan is expanding its offerings for spring/summer 2012. The new season sees the fashion house adding office and travel bags to its range, and several warm weather hues.

The company’s namesake, co-founder, and chief executive officer, says the latest additions bring broader appeal to her company. They’re the work of the company’s lead designer Maya Stewart, who honed her craft at leading fashion brands including Judith Leiber, C.C. Skye, and Matthew Williamson.

The Tribeca Day Bag is one of the key new designs for office wear and business trips. It’s large enough to carry an iPad, and has several interior pockets for holding mobile technology and other essential small items. Its exterior features Jill Milan’s iconic V-shaped quilting and polished palladium-coated accents. It’s available in sensible business colors: black, camel, and brown.

The Firenze Satchel is another office appropriate choice. It metal-edged angled flap is complemented by its quilted body. It’s also large enough for holding an iPad along with important documents and devices. Just like its stablemate, it’s available in black, camel, and brown.

As with the entire Jill Milan collection, the new bags are made entirely from high quality vegan materials. I concede that these Italian made skins are better than your average synthetics, but I still think the accessories are too expensive. The Tribeca Day bag costs $750, and the Firenze Satchel is even more pricy at $1600. Do you think that’s too much to spend on a vegan leather accessory?
