Despite the frills and feathered minis coming in for Fall '10, there's also something very pared down happening. "Warm minimalism" seems to be the catch phrase to describe this phenomena and Matthew Williamson's smart little handbags are exactly what I'm talking about.
Something about the size and scale of this bag is sleek, but a little embellishment keeps it from being boring and severe.
Doesn't it just make you want to get all dressed up (in a pared-down sort of way), grab your smart little handbag and go out for a nice lunch?
