From left: Fendi, Givenchy, and Louis Vuitton spring 2010
Always a cash cow category for design houses, the spring 2010 collections offer handbags in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures. One of the most ubiquitous trends of the season — tassels and fringe — had major moments at Bottega Veneta, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Derek Lam, and Gucci. Other details to note when considering purchases for this season: clear plastic and lucite (at Prada and Fendi, respectively), stingray skin (Givenchy), crochet and woven details (Carolina Herrera and Bottega Veneta), and contrasting colors (Versace and Proenza Schouler).
