Boyy, not to be confused with Boy (by Band Of Outsiders), is a handbag line that sticks to classic shapes and color combinations. Borne in 2006, designer's Jesse Dorsey and Wannasiri Kongman, have braved the harsh reality of starting a leather handbag line in light of a recession (leather is expensive) and the growing popularity of eco-friendly non-leather bags. The pair seem to have just the spirit for the job, where their Spring/Summer 2008 collection is themed with a complex (and quarky) set of theories surrounding the number eight, the year 2008, eight's divisibility by two, the fact that they are two designers, and so on (literally, and so on, part of this theme has something to do with the concept of infinity). This aside, we think these bags are a contemporary price point classic, most notably, the Patent Trim Summer Serge Weekender. Toss this sucker into the passenger seat of a convertible headed for the Hamptons (or Mexico City, we swing both ways) and you're in pretty good standing with the gods of fashion.
