Handbag Top 10
An invaluable source of marketing information for retailers and trend-setters is their list of the most popular and least popular bags. The current favorites, in equal first place are the eco-friendly “I’m not a plastic bag,” by Anya Hindmarsh, and Yves-Saint-Laurent Y-mail tote, a large, gold patent leather tote with black lettering in the form of an envelope.
Prada Fairy Bag
Joining them at the top of the list is Prada’s Fairy Bag, one of the hottest bags of the season. Oscar winning actress (for the movie, Michael Clayton) Tilda Swinton was seen sporting this fairy-print bag at the Sundance Film Festival and judging by the reaction from the fashion press, this bag is definitely one to watch. According to Purseblog.com, fairies are Prada’s iconic prints of the season, and given the number of celebrities which have fallen in love with the bag, including, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Hilary Duff, Catherine Deneuve, and Bee Schaeffer, this is touted to be the IT bag of Spring/Summer, adoring to styelfinder.com.
Made from varnished-deerskin leather, Fantasy and female imagination inspired this sprite-like purse, which comes in 2 sizes and is priced around $2290 and $2490. However there is a very long waiting list, so be warned!
