I think these 2 bags are the the It bags for Spring!!
Clean and Simple yet Stunningly Chic.
The bags are crafted of leather and are traditionally vegetable tanned in Italy while each piece is washed, dyed and finished by hand.
An accessories designer to watch.

I hardly ever look at the Men's shows! It simply put does not inspire me.
However the other day when I read WWD, I happened to see a lovely men's look as created by the house Lanvin for Fall 2011......off I went to Catwalking.com ......to go through the whole season of men's shows...!!!! Fall 2011 is Packed of Wonderfully perfectly tailored pieces. A gentleman in a young fresh way. This is definitely my type of man.
