There's always a holiday---which is why there seems to always be holiday fairs for media people to preview---even in the middle of May.
Makes sense---as many of the fun carry-alls we previewed are summer ready to deliver.
The non-leather, all under $100 handbags, clutches and totes by Olivia + Joy, New York in modern shapes, great prints and bold colors...given the prices---we thought, well-done.
|Viper Top Handle $98|
|Swanky Satchel $88|
ISSAC MIZRAHI New York...debuted some very classic leather handbags---that are destined for QVC, we assume. Retailing-under $200...
|attached inner zip sac-in a plaid tote with leather trim/bottom|
|plenty of inner pockets---fun zebra stripe lining|
|elegant brief case|
|envelope clutch in yellow leather...with "I" gold hardware clasp.|
MOJO BACKPACKS---have got to be the most inventive "lifestyle" haulers we have ever seen for the elementary school set...though we think older humans will just carry for a laugh.
Made of 300D-600D polyester and polyester twill-the packs are durable and feature details like outer zipped compartment and grab handles.
|love-the hundred dollar bill lining on the Benjamin Franklin pack. So clever. $48|
|"GLAM CHEETAH" by Betsey Johnson $97- $210|
