Fall 2007 Hag Bags


There are literally hundreds of smart, well-designed handbags out on the market for you to choose from. With fall just around the corner, time is closing in to make the right selection. This can be a daunting task as I've discussed before, but let me ease your mission with a list of bags that should remain far, far away from your arms and your closets.

And the hag bags are...

Top row
MICHAEL Michael Kors Metallic Astor Tote $328 via eLUXURY
Jean Paul Gaultier Le Prive Tartan Bag $1495 via eLUXURY

Bottom row
Gustto Cala Clutch $345 via Neiman Marcus
Isabella Fiore Metallic Margo Satchel $725 via eLUXURY

Metallics handbags are definitely "IN", but the Metallic Astor Tote and Metallic Margo Satchel are attempts at channeling this fun trend with cheap-looking results. While the over-sized clutch is a great idea, the Cala Clutch falls flat - literally. This droopy drag of a bag is in desperate need of a little structure as well as that intangible quality a great handbag design possesses. Even though the Le Prive Bag was one of last season's "IT" bags, this tartan-patterned interpretation is unnecessary and an affront to Scotsmen (and women) everywhere. Ladies, stay away from these bags, they might bite.
