Best of 2008: Handbag Designer of the Year

Is the It bag dead? Maybe. However, this past year we saw a stockpile of stunning handbags from a range of designers. We swooned over some, tested your celebrity bag knowledge, and even gave some designer goods away. No doubt, we're still obsessed with handbags. We've narrowed our favorites down to Chloe, Prada, Lanvin, Balenciaga, Chanel, and Marni. From classic to cutting-edge, these artisans stayed true to their distinct styles. Tell me, which designs reigned supreme in 2008?

(Top row: L-R, Chloe, Prada, Lanvin)

I chose the Chanel purse because black matches well with any color and style, and Chanel is classic and timeless.

I would vote valentino but since that's not an option, I voted prada. I like girly bags.
