We love scouring the internet to find and share the hautest handbags that represent original style, innovative design and the latest trends. Since 2011 has come to an end, check out our five favorite bags from the last year.
Christopher Kane Aqua gel-filled PVC clutch
Known for his provocative style and edgy approach to fashion, Scottish designer Christopher Kane continued to make his mark with eclectic designs and unexpected embellishments, like his gel-filled ‘Aqua’ large envelope clutch. The bag, which was first spotted on the Fall/Winter 2011 runway, was truly a conversation piece.
Valentino Rockstud Dome Satchel
The Valentino Rockstud Dome Satchel is the perfect example of a handbag that is a classic, yet attention-grabbing and utterly chic piece, all in one. Its neutral hue is paired with tons of glittering gold pyramid studs that adds a funky rock and roll edge. Additional features include two top handles, detachable studded skinny shoulder strap, and lined interior with zip and open pockets.
Be&D Rowan Animal-Print Satchel
Leopard has been one of the hautest trends for several seasons, which is why the Be&D Rowan Animal-Print Satchel was one of our favorite bags of 2011. This chic satchel features a structured silhouette which gives it a slightly utilitarian look. The animal print bag is versatile enough to be paired with virtually anything.
Meredith Wendell Bucket leather and canvas shoulder bag
Meredith Wendell is known for its resort-inspired accessories that mix bright colors with sporty, American style, and luxe details such as silk rope, stained glass and colored python. On this bucket bag, we loved the colorblock combination of indigo canvas, blue leather and red patent leather that surprisingly complement each other. Additional features include a detachable shoulder strap, fully lined interior with three compartments and a zipper pocket.
Vlieger & Vandam Guardian Angel Clutch
We spotted Rihanna carrying a Vlieger & Vandam Guardian Angel Clutch, and have been a fan of these super cute clutches ever since! The collection is full of bags that are just a bit badass. Available in yellow, tan, green and blue, the Angel Clutch features a suede-embossed front with a raised gun impression, and leather on the back with a top zip closure, exterior and interior pockets and a detachable metal shoulder strap.
