The (New) Structural Bag
What exactly do we mean by the "new" structural bag? Just that designers spared no angular line or boxy shape where their handheld accessories were concerned. It wasn't limited to sharp-edged crossbody bags and boldly pronounced doctors' bags, either; even the accordian-pleated clutches and camera bags got their structural dues. Of course, leave it to Derek Lam, Hermès, and Salvatore Ferragamo (all masters of covetable add-ons) to make it the sleekest kind of enterprise.
