|MONTEBONO-Fuchsia and Tangerine|
DOONEY & BOURKE Spring 2013 Media Preview---NYC
Practical shapes, top quality leather, and colorful...the words we thought as we previewed the new handbags and totes for Spring 2013 by Dooney & Bourke---an accessible luxurious assortment of finely made carry-alls and accessories.
A new to us terrific collection---stylish and sophisticated...the Montebono collection transports us to some casually glam Riviera locale. We think this will be a big hit for the Dooney & Bourke faithful---as well as garner some new fans to the label. Really a bit of a change and the construction of these haulers is unique.
