Oscar de la Renta Handbags

After Valentino Garavani's retirement from the fashion world, are there any true fashion icons left? Two giants come to mind, and they couldn't be more different if they wanted to be. I'm speaking, of course, of Karl Lagerfeld and Oscar de la Renta. One is bold and brash while the other is quiet and sophisticated. While I respect and admire Mr. Lagerfeld's talent, I find de la Renta's chic, refined designs are timeless testaments to the beauty of fashion. Just look at some of the handbags he's created. You could send them back in time and they would be as appropriate and relevant as they are today. My personal favorites are the Fairfax, Frame Clutch and Audley.

Fairfax: Distressed, polished dark-brown lambskin leather; dual lace-thru, round top handles; 12 x 9.5 x 6 main compartment; center divider with zip pocket -$1495

Frame Clutch: Black python exterior; resin frame top with clasp closure; 11 x 6 x 4 interior - $2295

Audley: Anthracite ostrich exterior; rolled top handles; dual wrap-around zip closure; lined 15 x 12 x 7 interior; also available in forest green - $6995
