Always a top hit, we know the Dooney & Bourke fans will be hitting the beach and the stores for these collectables designed with American practicality...with flair, quality construction and tasteful hardware...

For Fall 2010,

D&B focused on the core collections (Alto, Amazon, Classic Croc, Graphic Croco, and jewelry like the charms)…with some classic and trendier haulers for the young at heart and the dedicated  hand bag types who know a good value when they see it.

--with some new, want it now haulers like the DB 1975 line that sources the iconic logo in a modern way.

And a bevy of gloves and circle scarves…we wanted to scoop these up in every color!

---a sensible extension of this brand…and all very affordable and made with the high quality of all Dooney & Bourke products.

The embossed croc is a trend that's really versatile...for dressy and informal occasions. IMHO- a texture witj the  feel ---that will endure as an everyday statement. In the Amazon and Classic Croc- collections-including-handbags/ accessories, gloves and smart, computer sleeves...D&B really has some of the best we have seen at reasonable price points...witht the depth of the real luxe exotic.

Crossbody Saddle Bag

                                                                            Susanna Tote

Others selections in this group are in new colors…a grayish lavender, in addition to the tried and true dark brown and cognac…. love leather ruched gloves too.

Accessories and cashmere scarves, and hats match.

An updated Alto---we think these colors like papaya, mushroom and forest green are a fresh addition to the neutrals.


Love all the gloves--- and with bold details…like these DB buttons on the gloves.

In the Portofino group, D&B delivers three sizes in classic colors. This cross body silhouette is a favorite---it fits “nicely on the hip” and the solid hardware is terrific.

Executive Accessories --in the Graphic Croc are handsome giftables retailing for under $100.

We’re not logo crazy---but we love the look here---in a sturdy Italian fabric on the textured background.

NICE---charm bracelets and drive gloves (good for strap hangars too)…in all shades.

DELIVERS ---Start mid-late Summer 2010
