Best Handbag of 2012

Best of 2012: Handbag of the Year

While a bevvy of bags were debuted this year from covet-worthy labels like Mulberry, Proenza Schouler, and Givenchy, only a select few would achieve It bag status on the arms of celebrities and street-style stars alike. After careful consideration — and a year's worth of evidence — these are the standouts: Fendi's 2Jours structured satchel, a favorite of celebs like Reese Witherspoon, who owns it in tan; Céline's luggage tote, which practically every fashion lover, street-style star, and fashion insider went crazy over; 3.1 Phillip Lim's Pashli bag, which many described as a fusion of the Céline tote and an Hermès Birkin; and Valentino's Rockstud oversize clutch, which style setters like Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung proudly displayed at Fashion Week. We'd be happy to tote any of the four, and surely they all deserve a spot in this category — but which style warrants the handbag of the year title? Cast your vote now!
