Trend Alert: Trapezoid Shaped Handbags

Last week I confided in you that I was never a geometry whiz. It appears handbags have taken a fresh form and the trapezoid is the newest shape du jour. With a narrower top and widening bottom, these are the pears of the glorious handbag field. Some call them satchels, some call them totes, I call them the shape of things to come.

Salvatore Ferragamo Mediterraneo Top-Handle Satchel, $1,190.


To see more leather trapezoids,

BCBG Max Azria Sahara Bag, on sale for $261.80 (originally $374).


Steven by Steve Madden 'Nauti-Girl Large' Satchel, $195.

I am such a sleep-deprived idiot. So I read "trapezoid shaped handbags", and the shape that comes to mind...is a parallelogram. "Wow,how does that work" I'm thinking. So I click , see the pics, and I'm like....ohhhhh....
