Vote For Your Favorite Bag of 2010
Guest Editor for a week: Kristina Meert
2010 has been an interesting year in fashion for many reasons, but more specifically because it was a year of anything goes in regards to handbag design and trends.
While Celine made the square, simplistic, structured small shoulder bag popular, we also still saw a lot of studs; round, spiked and yes, even the pyramid made an appearance (can’t wait for that trend to be over), add to the list, fringed hobos and furry satchels. Gone are the days of the all encompassing “It” bag (although there are a few that stand out) as it’s been a challenge to really pinpoint the most popular trend. On the other hand there are a few bags that really made a splash.
Most notably is the classic over-sized envelope clutch in exotic materials who debuted in the likes of Adriana Castro and J.J. Winters, making a haute statement, all the while reminding everyone to value luxury, but to pick high priced items in understated silhouettes. While the big boys such as Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Chanel still flourished, we continued to become aware of new comers such as Lena Erziak, Reed Krakoff, and Cashhimi.
Yes, handbag fashion has taken a very explorative route in 2010 and it was our pleasure at Handbago.com to reach out to all of you, our lovely handbag extra-ordinaires, to see what tickled you pink this year when it came to handheld delights.
We are exited to share with you the official 2010 Handbago Awards that allow you, the people, to vote for your favorite bags in a variety of categories. We hope you vote and share and rally together for your favorite designer. Happy Voting! May the best bag win.
