COLORS, colors, colors-the first thing we noticed as soon as we entered the Dooney & Bourke Spring 2012 preview.

Everyone really loved these Two Tone O-Ring Shoppers from the Lambskin Collection. Ideal for the hot Spring clothing trends of the 2012 season----

Davis Tassel Shopper

There were plenty else to want to-that will keep the faithful happy----and we think with this nod to tonal brightness-will attract even more customers to the well made ---accessible luxury brand of carry-alls.

Plus new shapes-like the Davis Tassel Shopper in want them all color waves. Fab!

Nautically natty-coated vinyl.,,DB Stripes Collection ---barrel bags, wristlets, letter carriers (nice square shape, fyi), shoppers, totes...
