Get 20% Off Tons of Designer Handbags

Other Brands

ZAC Zac Posen Daphne Satchel

We’re always on the lookout for new and unexpected places to buy handbags; after all, having more options makes it more likely that you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for and get a decent deal. Although you may associate our site with reasonably priced books and household goods, Fashion also holds an impressive selection of handbags, shoes and clothing, mostly at contemporary price points. Not only that, but the site is offering 20% off a $100+ fashion purchase at the moment.

I had noticed Amazon coming up more frequently in my handbag searches recently, and when I did a bit of exploring, I realized that the site held far more fashion options than I would have guessed. When you combine that with Amazon’s customer-friendly delivery and return policies, competitive approach to pricing and perks like Amazon Prime, it’s easy to imagine Amazon building out an even more robust role in online fashion shopping in the near future.

Best Bet: Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel

Other Brands

Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel

I’m always on the lookout for bags that look more expensive than they are. That can be a hard thing to pull off, with ever-rising leather prices and executive boards that expect high margin percentages, so when it happens, it makes my day. If you’re looking for a solid work bag that looks professional and sophisticated without a price tag higher than your monthly rent, look no further than the Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel.

They key to this bag’s expensive look is how sharp it is. It’s got plenty of structure, uncluttered lines and a color combination that accents its shape while leaving it totally work-appropriate, even in an extremely conservative office environment. It’s capped off with just enough gleaming silver hardware, including a front lock that’s reminiscent of closures commonly seen on both Louis Vuitton and Prada bags, which goes a long way toward elevating it into expensive-looking territory.

If the old adage about the wisdom dressing for the job you want and not the one you have has any truth to it, this bag is exactly the kind of thing that a recent grad with her first office job needs on her arm. It wouldn’t be too shabby for a not-so-recent grad, either.

Prada’s Fall 2014 Runway Bags Have Arrived in Stores

Other Brands

Prada Lux Calf Medium Flap Satchel Bag Yellow

In spite of the fact that I’m generally willing to give Miuccia Prada the benefit of the doubt on almost anything (those ill-advised, open-toe Miu Miu cowboy boots from a couple of seasons ago are a notable exception), I wasn’t really feeling most of Prada’s Fall 2014 runway bags. Most of them were decked with huge, ungainly chains and little else, and many of you were similarly unsure whether they’d translate well to retail. Good news: they have!

Pre-orders for Prada’s fall runway bags are now up at Bergdorf Goodman (as well as for a whole load of non-runway options), and the results are mostly quite good. There are far fewer chains, and the bags that have had them eliminated entirely fare the best, especially the elegant top handles. If you still want a chain in your life, there are some smaller, mostly metallic options that meet your needs, but they’re not the highlight here. Check out a selection of the bags below and shop the full selection via Bergdorf Goodman.

Anndra Neen to Auction Off Solid Gold Clutch Commissioned by Carine Roitfeld

Other Brands

Anndra Neen Solid Gold Clutch

At times, it feels like the handbag and jewelry markets are slowly converging into one. Customers who like one type of high-dollar designer accessory are likely to be interested in others, and costume jewelry designers like DannijoMawi and Shourouk have taken that opportunity to expand their reach into the handbag market with lines of metal-and-rhinestone-accented clutches and bags that combine the best decorative aspects of their jewels, with generally well-received results.

The jewelry-designing sisters behind Anndra Neen dipped its toes in the clutch waters not long ago, and the results were more than well-received; the little cage clutch that was the crowning achievement of the small bag line sold out so quickly when it became available at retailers that I felt like I was chasing it around the Internet in order to write a post about itAs Style.com reportsCR Fashion Book editor Carine Roitfeld was so smitten with the clutch that she had the designers make it in 18-karat gold for the LoveGold amfAR gala at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

The clutch stayed with the sisters after the gala, and now they’ve turned it over to Sotheby’s for auction during the house’s Important Jewels auction on September 23 in New York. Right now, the estimated final price of the clutch, which required 20 hours of painstaking hand work, is in excess of $20,000. That’s less than plenty of Birkins, which is not bad when you consider that it’s a one-of-a-kind, handmade piece rendered in solid gold at a fashion legend’s request.

Man Bag Monday: Carven Leather Backpack

Other Brands

Carven Leather Backpacks

In general, men’s bags cost less than women’s do, even when the men’s version is based on a popular women’s design (and is larger than that design). The only place where that seems to be particularly untrue is when it comes to backpacks; perhaps designers assume that a man buying a luxury backpack is likely to be more accustomed to to exorbitant fashion pricing than one just trying to pick up a nice briefcase.

Even non-leather backpacks can reach four figures pretty quickly, and I’m not much of a fan of that no matter the gender of the bag’s intended audience. If you’re a dude who wants a designer backpack from a buzzy brand under a thousand dollars, check out the Carven Leather Backpack.

This design is a totally pared-down take on the Jansports we all carried in middle school, except now that we’re adults, the bag is rendered in leather that appears to be super buttery.
