So what do we know...we have never been to a Bon-Ton® stores---but we have to say, the handbags we saw by designer Victor Alfaro (VICTOR BY Vicotor Alfaro) for this affordable retailer...at a recent NYC showroom---- are really well done.

The Flap Messenger pictured in the front (black, grey, or white) -from the Turnlock Collection--was compared to that Proenza Schouler PS 1 Leather bags by a bunch of attendees at this press preview...for sale at Barney's at $1150-$1995.

This retails for considerably less---waaaaayyyyy less $100...and no animals were harmed in the making either. We like that!
Terrific----and the purple tote-in black and grey too----  also retails $100

For sale now----the versatile Safari Tote bag for $60. WOW.

CODA: John Bartlett ---one of our fav fashion designers---and PETA advocate---is on board with Bon-Ton® for an exclusive men's apparel collections for Fall 2011. We can't wait to preview.
